Vicki Gunvalson is known for being on The Real Housewives of Orange County since the very first episode. Vicki has shared ups and downs with viewers, including growing her business and getting divorced from her second husband. After her divorce, she began dating Brooks Ayers. While he appeared to be a great guy in the beginning, Tamra Barney quickly started questioning her friend’s new relationship.
Over the past year, stories have surfaced about Ayers. He was labeled as a “dead-beat father” because he wasn’t paying child support. He had even served time for not paying the mother anything. Ayers also admitted to telling Vicki’s son-in-law to start hitting Vicki’s daughter to keep her in line. Now, Briana is concerned for her mother’s well-being.
According to a new tweet, Vicki Gunvalson recently revealed that she is heading to Oklahoma to visit her daughter and two grandsons. This announcement comes just days after a new abuse scandal hit the media involving Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers.
Finishing up meetings in Austin, then headed to OKC with my sister and niece to see Briana and her boys this weekend. #missingthem

It is no secret that Vicki Gunvalson doesn’t like her name in the press when it comes to abuse. Gunvalson has always denied that Brooks hits her, but many people will say that they have witnessed his violent tendencies. However, there are several sides to every story and Vicki has asked people to withhold their judgments.
What you don’t know…is what you don’t know. Be careful not to pass judgement until the entire truth comes out.

These abuse rumors are not new, according to The Inquisitr. But every time they surface, it is possible that Briana Culberson gets more concerned for her mother’s safety. Since Briana and Ayers don’t get along, Gunvalson is not bringing him to Oklahoma with her.
Vicki Gunvalson didn’t have any issues before Brooks came into her life. On top of these abuse stories, Vicki is also dealing with a lawsuit over a business venture, Vicki’s Vodka. She and Brooks were both sued by her former business partner, Robert Williamson III, a professional poker player. Robert and Vicki worked to launch the vodka line together, but neither of them made money from it.
Robert is convinced that Ayers may have assisted Gunvalson is making money when he made none. There were accusations of fraud, and Vicki decided to walk away. Williamson III decided to sue Vicki and Brooks over the failed business venture. The trial could be part of an upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Orange County.
Do you think Vicki Gunvalson is heading to Oklahoma to calm her daughter’s nerves over these new abuse accusations? Do you think Vicki should leave Brooks behind for good?
