Vicki Gunvalson's romantic life was the painful subject of much of this season's Real Housewives of Orange County
, but the reality star says things are going well now. She has a new boyfriend – and she's happy.
"The media doesn't tell the whole truth," the The Real Housewives of Orange County
star, 49, told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live
on Sunday night. "There's a lot that hasn't been told."
Her relationship with Brooks Ayers has raised eyebrows since reports broke of his stints in jail for DUI and for not paying child support from a previous marriage. "I knew everything," she said of the reports. "There wasn't any secrets and lies."
Gunvalson's love life, after all, has proven to be rocky. It's been less than a year since the reality star filed for divorce
from husband Donn Gunvalson in October, a final straw in a very public marital struggle that played out on TV.
When Cohen asked if she's "still in love" with Ayers, she said "yes."
"I don't want people in my business," she added, when asked about fellow Housewives
star Tamra Barney's treatment of Slade Smiley, Gretchen Rossi's boyfriend who dealt with his own "deadbeat dad" accusations. "I'm a big girl … Everyone needs to have a fine line where you stop."
