Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson just can't seem to shake Brooks Ayers, can she? At least, it certainly seems that way after a shocking new text suggests that the on-again, off-again pair are, well, back to being on-again. Sigh.

Much of this week's Reunion Part 3 episode focused on the Vicki-Brooks drama, with Vicki's daughter Briana bringing up the shocking recording in which Brooks threatens to physically beat Vicki and encourages Briana's husband Ryan to do the same to her. 

At the end of the episode, Brooks and Vicki acknowledge that their relationship isn't working out, and Vicki made it clear that they are both moving on. Vicki was in tears after Brooks left the stage and wished her well at the end of last night's reunion episode, suggesting that he was now out of her life.

However, it appears that their tearful goodbye was not as final as we might have wanted it to be thought it was. A revealing text sent this week by former Housewife Jeana Keough suggests that Vicki and Brooks are at least hanging out together, even if they're not in fact actually dating.

On August 25, the day that the Reunion Part 3 aired, Jeana tweeted to Vicki: 

Whoa! We really were convinced that Vicki and Brooks were dunzo this time, but it looks like Gretchen Rossi was right to be skeptical at the reunion as to whether they would actually stop dating. Frankly, we're shocked that Vicki would stay with Brooks after the incredibly disgusting comments he made during his recorded conversation with Ryan.

We're wishing Vicki the best, but we're still hoping she'll give herself a chance to meet a great new guy.
