The Real Housewife of Orange County’s Vicki Gunvalson recently announced to US Weekly that she and Brooks Ayers broke up.
But, Lauri Peterson, who has been feuding with Vicki on the current season, tells RumorFix exclusively that she doesn’t think the couple ever split.
“I think that Brooks and Vicki stay together,” she told our Mr. Real Housewife. “I don’t think that they’ve ever been apart. I feel that she tells people that they’ve been apart because she gets less resistance for that … I think that they’re still together.”
Lauri adds, “I think that her issues with Brooks probably revolved more around the children picking up on signals that maybe he’s not the right kind of guy for her. I can’t say that it’s because of her love for men. It would take a man that is OK with her being very flirtatious with other men, I guess, but I don’t know if Brooks has a problem with that or not.”
The former RHOOC star also talked to us about the rumors Brooks dated one of her daughter’s friends.
“To use the term friend, I used that way too loosely, ” she says. “It was a former high school classmate of one of our daughters. That’s the one thing I do regret, making it sound like there was an actual friendship.”
Lauri says the topic came up during a dinner when a family member told her one of her friends was dating Brooks.
“I just said I did not believe that Brooks would be dating someone that age. I said prove it to me. She sat down and she texted this person and asked ‘Hey are you still seeing Brooks?’ She replied — which I saw the text — ‘Yes.’ Then the family member asked ‘When are you seeing him next?’ She replied, ‘I’m supposed to be with him today, but he went back to visit his family and now I’m broke.’ She said ‘Now I’m broke or now I have no dollars’ — this led me to believe he was maybe giving her money, because the family member said prior to that when she met Brooks that he was throwing hundreds at her at a poker party. That’s that situation. I have seen the porn video that this girl is in — I mean not all of it, but there’s a trailer that was circulating amongst social media. The title says ‘Two girls trying to break into the porn industry” and then it has their porn video. Two girls and a guy. I watched about two seconds of it and I was ready to throw up,” Lauri says.
