Vicki Gunvalson appears to be having a rough go at rekindling her romance with Brooks Ayers on Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8. A big part of the problem? The disapproval coming from Vicki’s daughter, Briana, and her son-in-law, Ryan. Briana even threatened to leave Vicki’s home over the controversial relationship.

But according to Brooks, Briana had nothing to do with he and Vicki's romantic woes.

“Briana is NOT the cause of our issues,” Brooks told RumorFix’s Real Mr. Housewife. He went on to say he sympathized with Briana’s protective stance with Vicki when it comes to dating.

“As an adult of parents who divorced, we are on ‘high alert’ when ti comes to anyone else coming into our families [sic] lives after the pain of a divorce. “I have respected Briana and Ryan’s choices and wish them the very best.”

The real reason he and Vicki Gunvalson had issues was simple.

“We both are too much alike,” said Brooks Ayers.

He confirmed the two are once again dating, and that they took some time apart last year for Vicki to focus on her family and her newborn grandson.

“I didn’t want our issues to come between Vicki and her daughter Briana,” Brooks explained. “I shared with Vick that she needed to focus totally on that special occasion. I have four children and experienced the birth of all of them. It is just an incredible time.”

As long as Vicki’s happy, we’re happy too!
