The Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson has reportedly split from Brooks Ayers and has taken up with a new man in John Pankauski.
Gunvalson and Ayers went through a bitter split, only to get back together despite warnings from her friends and family. Now it looks like it's over for real.
Vicki met John Pankauski, an attorney, in New York City recently and apparently hit it off immediately. Says a source close to the reality star:
“Vicki met John when he was meeting with her production company Woo Hoo and she had dinner with him and brought him to a Watch What Happens Live taping."
“They are working together on a few projects, but there are sparks flying.”
Unlike Brooks Ayers, who's entangled in multiple lawsuits over child support and other issues, Pankauski seems a much better match for Gunvalson.
Will we see him when we watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online this season? That remains to be seen, but she is smitten with him now.
“John comes from the New England area and he moved to Palm Beach about 15 years ago,” a source said. "He built a multi-million dollar law firm which he owns."
“John is single, 6’2”, 200 lbs, an athlete and avid tennis player. He has handsome movie star good looks and he’s a rascal too. He is a warrior and a fierce lawyer.”
Who is this celebrity gossip source, eHarmony? Just kidding (not really).
We wish them the best. Even without that glowing review, he's a winner.
Because he's not Brooks:
