There were several awkward moments on Real Housewives of Orange County when Vicki Gunvalson introduced her new beau, Brooks, to daughter Briana and son Michael at a party in Season 7, Episode 13. Not only did the kids seem uber uncomfortable, but Brooks himself seemed to struggle to make a connection with them.
Looking back on it, even Vicki thinks the timing could’ve been better. In her most recent Bravo blog, Vicki wrote about “one of the most uncomfortable moments of [her] life” and said she wished she’d have introduced everyone when there was no one else around. According to her, though, things have since improved with the fam. They recently attended the Kentucky Derby as a group, and while “[i]t’s not perfect by any means… it is much better than it was when this episode filmed.” Phew!
Though he recently relocated to the OC, Vicki assured everyone that she and Brooks aren’t planning to head to the altar any time soon. “I am not rushing into marriage with Brooks,” she explained. “I myself have a lot of growing and healing to do.” It’s a good thing, too, because holding off on any nuptial plans will probably be the only realistic way to keep things civil with the kids and ex-hubby Donn.
