The Real Housewives of Orange County villain Brooks Ayers is back, and he's not pulling punches when it comes to ex Vicki Gunvalson.
The two barely speak anymore, after the whole Brooks lying about cancer thing and Vicki alienating herself from the cast whilst defending him.
Not that there's any love lost at all, it sounds like.
“I’ve moved on and am very happy,” Ayers said to RealMRHousewife (dot) com on Tuesday, June 29. “I wish her the best."
"I have no desire to be involved with her or her family. Too toxic for me," Ayers added. "Once and for all, we are done as a couple.”
Ayers told the site that when the former lovebirds do exchange pleasantries, they are simply business related these days, not romantic.
Or even friendly, for that matter. Strictly legal.
“I’m only talking to Vicki because of the Vodka lawsuit from 2013,” Brooks says, referring to the couple's infamous legal woes.
“All of the claims against me have been dropped," Ayers insists, "yet my counterclaims against the plaintiff still remain.”
The duo's joint entrepreneurial endeavor went defunct after a third partner, Robert Williamson III, fired off a slew of lawsuits and allegations.
He sued Ayers and Gunvalson for breach of contract and fraud - to name a few supposed offenses - and she's still fighting that fight.
“Unfortunately, Vicki is still having to deal with claims for and against her,” Ayers added. “So we do talk strategy to help each other."
"It’s all business between us now.”
Despite his insistence that it's over for good, or Vicki insisting she hates Brooks and will never get back together, one co-star disagrees.
Tamra Barney Judge, in a June 27 appearance on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live, says she believes Vicki will one day take him back.
"I can only speculate but I do think they're still talking," Judge told Andy Cohen. "I think it's a matter of time before they get back together.”
Hmm. Given the guy's propensity for telling white lies or outright fabrications, and Vicki's track record of going along with them?
TBJ may have a point.
