Vicki Gunvalson's vokda business partner is taking aim at the Real Housewives of Orange County's on-again, off-again boyfriend Brooks Ayers.

Robert Williamson III, who helped found Vicki's Vodka, is disputing Vicki's blog that praised Brooks' role in forming the company. "No matter where our relationship ends up in the future, I am thankful for Brooks that his business knowledge and strength assisted Robert and I with forming the business," Vicki wrote.

"Without Brooks, Vicki's Vodka would not be in existence and I am extremely grateful and thankful for him."

Robert disagrees with this wholeheartedly. "I understand that Vicki Gunvalson is is trying to be kind," Robert said. "However, in trying to be polite to Brooks Ayers, Vicki has downplayed the fact that she is a savvy businesswoman in her own right... And it is the hard work and dedication of Vicki Gunvalson and myself that has led to the success of Vicki's Vodka."

What followed was perhaps the sharpest line of his entire statement: "I want to be clear that Brooks Ayers has had absolutely nothing to do with that growth, recognition, and success."

Robert assured everyone that Brooks is not currently, never has been, and never will be involved with the company. Ouch, Brooks, does the burn hurt?
