We know Vicki Gunvalson of The Real Housewives of Orange County doesn’t always make the best decisions, but that’s just a part of her charm! When we heard that she’s reportedly been playing the field these days, we grew pretty curious about which guys our “woo hoo” gal was getting close to — and we were pretty surprised to find out one such guy was a familiar friend: Brooks Ayers!

The two attended a Toby Keith concert together on Friday night, and when Vicki posted the above photo to her Instagram, she received a lot of negative comments about Brooks. Vicki was quick to ignore the commenters’ advice, responding, “Hey everyone that seems to think its ‘ok’ to bad mouth someone you have never met... Well it's NOT! If you love me, respect my decisions and support me. If I'm wrong, then I'll be the one to blame and I'll be the one to suffer the consequences of a broken heart. I'm living life now, and making memories along the way. I'm having fun, growing my businesses and enjoying my time with Brooks. Keep your negative comments to yourself or you will be deleted and blocked. Ok?!” Preach, girlfriend!

At least the OC grandma is exploring her options a bit. She is reportedly also dating NYC attorney John Pankauski, who seems to be a great match for the fiery, business-minded blonde. But don’t you worry, homegirl is exploring her possibilities.

“Vicki wants to be out there just dating,” a source told Radar. “There are a lot of great men and she wants to meet and date as many of them as possible.”

Do you think Vicki and Brooks are a good match? What would your advice be for Vicki? Let us know in the comments!

The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Monday nights at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
