After her last relationship crumbled in the national spotlight, it seems like Vicki Gunvalson is separating her romantic reality from reality television. 

The insurance agent and longtime Real Housewives of Orange County cast member faced major scandal on the show's previous season when former beau Brooks Ayers was called into question about his alleged cancer treatments. E! News exclusively confirmed back in November that he had never been treated at the hospital he claimed after he went as far as showing falsified invoices to E!'s Melanie Bromley to prove the point. 

Since her five year relationship with Ayers ended in August 2015, Gunvalson has since found fresh romance with her new boyfriend, Steve Lodge. While she told Andy Cohen that Steve had not watched the Bravo show previously, she did come clean to him about last season's drama. 

"I told him everything," she admitted on Watch What Happens Live. However, did she go as far as making an introduction between the two men? "God, no," she declared.

Meanwhile, the important people in her life, including her fellow castmates and daughter Briana Culbertson have already met and are fans of her new man. "[Briana] loves him" she gushed. 

As she embarks on this new chapter of her love life, Gunvalson is making it clear to everyone listening that Brooks is a closed book. 

"He's in my past. We dated five years. I'm on a new relationship," she concluded. "I just really don't want to talk about Brooks anymore."
