Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson has officially decided to end her relationship with boyfriend Brooks Ayers. Although she was vague on the details, Gunvalson stated in a recent Facebook post that their decision to split was mutual.
“After much prayer, thought, counseling, and consideration, we have decided to end our four year relationship,” she wrote. “We both wish nothing but a great future for each other. We have come to realize that one can indeed love someone in their heart, but that the time may come for their lives to take separate paths.”
Gunvalson went on to reveal that their breakup will not be a part of Season 10 of the reality show, which concluded filming last May.
“There will be no further statements or interviews regarding our relationship as we choose to move on with our lives,” she continued in her post. “Though we choose to live our lives in the public eye we thank you for your understanding and ask privacy during this difficult time.”
Meanwhile, Ayers has been thrust into the spotlight during this season of The Real Housewives of Orange County mainly due to his cancer diagnosis. The arguments that have surfaced center on whether or not Ayers is lying about his fight with cancer, with Meghan King Edmonds leading the accusations.
However, cancer isn’t the only thing Edmonds and Gunvalson have fought over in recent episodes. Gunvalson has also feuded with Edmonds over money issues, with Gunvalson’s main point of contention being how her co-star is unemployed and lives off her husband’s money. With that in mind, how does Gunvalson’s net worth stack up against her ex-boyfriend, Ayers?
According to Bustle, Gunvalson’s net worth is a whopping $7 million. Gunvalson has managed to amass such a large sum of money due to her hard work as a life insurance agent, but also from the $500,000 salary she earns to appear on the reality show.
In contrast to Gunvalson’s high earnings, Ayers net worth is considerably less. In fact, Ayers is only worth around $150,000, which is less than what Gunvalson is pulling down. However, Ayers is far from being poor and makes his money working as an investment businessman – which, coincidentally, is actually how he met Gunvalson in the first place.
While Gunvalson and Ayers move on with their lives in the real world, The Real Housewives of Orange County continues Sunday nights on Bravo.
