Vicki Gunvalson may have moved on from her drama with Brooks Ayers, including allegations that he may have been lying about having cancer, but that doesn't mean he doesn't cross her mind every once in a while. In fact, he was briefly mentioned by the OG from the OC during Monday's Season 12 The Real Housewives of Orange County premiere. While Vicki says she hasn't spoken to him in two years, she does have a few questions for him should their paths ever cross.
"Why did you reveal bad records? Why did you do what you did to me?" she told E! News. "We had a good thing going or so I thought, but why? I still don't know why. I've never been able to get the answer from him."
Even with those questions unanswered, Vicki has this message for those who wondered what her ex was like and perhaps why she stood by his side through the good and the bad. "He wasn't this monster in my life. He wasn't. The viewers may think he was, but he wasn't," she said. "Did he turn into a monster towards the end? He did a lot of weird ass crazy things that I still don't understand because I don't talk to him."
And now she's moved on with her current boyfriend Steve Chavez Lodge, but still their romantic pasts are definitely something they've talked about. "I don't know why [Brooks] did what he did, but he wasn't a monster. He wasn't really the man I thought he was if he did what he did to me so that's the hard part," she said. "But Steve knows it's like a death. We've talked about our relationships ending. Anybody in my past is still important to me. My first husband, Donn. I was married to [Donn] for 20 years. You don't just forget about them. I want the best for Donn. I miss Donn. I miss our family unit, but it didn't work so that's why we're not together anymore."
