Did they break up... or didn't they? That's the big mystery currently surrounding Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson and on-again, off-again beau Brooks Ayers. We had heard earlier this week that Vicki is now seeing a new guy - but has she actually given Brooks the boot?

According to a recent report, Vicki is currently seeing John Pankauski, a hunky lawyer whom she met in NYC. "They are working together on a few business projects, but there are sparks flying between them," reveals a source. The source adds that Vicki brought John with her to a recent Watch What Happens Live taping. 

However, a new Life & Style story contradicts this, stating that Vicki is indeed still seeing Brooks. "Brooks is back this season," says an insider. "[With Briana out of the house,] it was only a matter of time before Vicki would let Brooks back in. They are still together right now."

There you go: Two very different rumors! So which one do we believe? Frankly, this John guy sounds like a total catch, and that story contains more details, whereas the Brooks story sounds like it could be a bit outdated. At any rate, we're just hoping Vicki is happy in her love life, no matter which guy she's with.

Do you think Vicki should date Brooks or this new guy?
