Despite what nearly everyone in her life — including daughter Briana and her Real Housewives of Orange County co-stars — has to say about Vicki Gunvalson’s boyfriend Brooks Ayers, Vicki insists she’s not settling.

In her latest Bravo blog, Vicki explained that she was disappointed in Tamra Barney — who she is no longer friends with — for not sticking up for Brooks during Part 1 of the RHoOC Season 7 reunion show, since she and fiancé Eddie Judge had spent time with him. In fact, she says Tamra was the one to encourage her to introduce Brooks to the world!

She also thinks everyone else has it all wrong when it comes to Brooks and the rumors surrounding him. Besides the disapproval of her family and her RHoOC castmates, Brooks was accused of being a deadbeat dad on a recent episode of 20/20.

I have a very good judge of character and I sure wouldn't have stayed this long if I didn't feel he wasn't worthy of me. I have no idea where my road is headed, but one thing for sure is I know who I am, I know what I want, and I'm not settling in any area of my life,” she wrote. “Yes, he admits to some mistakes in his past, but keep it in perspective. We ALL have some ‘issues’ in the past that we wish we could have changed or not have said, but at the end of the day he is a son, a brother, a father, a businessman, and I love him.
