RHOC star Vicki Gunvalson’s relationship with long time love, Brooks Ayers, hasn’t always been easiest or most well received relationship. Let’s face it not many fans, friends, or family members of Vicki’s seemed to be thrilled with her dating Brooks.
In fact Vicki and Brooks’ relationship put a huge strain on Vicki’s relationship with her daughter Briana Wolfsmith and her on-again, off-again BFF Tamra Barney. So with Brooks being the main source of Vicki’s fractured relationship with Briana and Tamra,why did Vicki continue to date and film with Brooks on RHOC.
Vicki is now saying that Bravo forced her to not only continue dating Brooks for a story line but also forced her to film with him. Vicki claims Bravo producers threatened to demote her role on RHOC if she refused.
“It’s really frightening bringing back Brooks into my life publicly” Gunvalson told Us.“[Bravo] basically put the gauntlet down and said, ‘If you don’t film with Brooks, then we are reducing your role.’ And I was like, ‘Oh no! You did not just say that!'”
I feel like this is such BS. Please not for a minute do I think Bravo is going to fire Vicki for not filming with Brooks. Hello first off their relationship is completely boring and most of the time the drama that surrounded their relationship was brought up with out Brooks being filmed. Briana and Tamra didn’t like Vicki dating Brooks in general not just while filming and honestly who can blame them. The Brooks drama would have been there whether Vicki filmed with him or not. Sounds like Vicki is looking for a scapegoat but if her and Brooks are truly happy I wish them the best. Let’s just hope the Brooks-Vicki-Tamra drama is in the past and won’t be a main story line this coming season.
