'Real Housewives' star Vicki Gunvalson Splits From BF Brooks

By Johnny Lopez 


Another day, another Real Housewives couple has called it quits.

Real Housewives of Orange County matriarch Vicki Gunvalson has once again broken up with her boyfriend Brooks Ayers.

In keeping with her outspoken nature, the 53-year-old blonde beauty released a lenghty statement to Us Weekly.

"After much prayer, thought, counseling, and consideration, we have decided to end our four year relationship. 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. Though the remaining episodes of Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Orange County will show us as a couple, the filming took place in January 2015 through May 2015. There will be no further statements or interviews regarding our relationship as we choose to move on with our lives. Though we choose to live our lives in the public eye, we thank you for your understanding and ask privacy during this difficult time." 

Ayers has been battling stage 3 cancer and had moved into Gunvalson's lavish home this season.

Vicki and Brooks - who started dating in 2011 - had previously broken up in 2013, but reconciled following news of his cancer diagnosis.

The pair had also endured much strife as many of Gunvalson's friends and family did not approve of their relationship.

It's been quite a harrowing year for the reality star, who previously learned the news of her mother's passing as cameras rolled filming the show's tenth season.
