Vicki Gunvalson

Somewhere, we know Vicki Gunvalson from The Real Housewives of Orange County is yelling out her signature "Woohoo!"

After filing for divorce last October from Donn, her hubby of 16 years, who appears on the show, it seems the Bravo reality star is ready to move on. To a dude who looks just like Donn!

This week, a smiling Gunvalson and her new man were spotted shopping at the Faith Connexion store on Melrose, "laughing, flirting and sipping champagne," a source tells us.

But is "The O.C. O.G." really ready to go public with a new romance?

"No, we are not dating. He is just a friend," The Real Housewives of Orange County star tells E! exclusively.

However, a source from the store dishes to us that Gunvalson was introducing the man, Brooke Ayers, whom she met through work, as her boyfriend

"She said they have been friends for a long time. She was raving about him and says he lets her be her, they have a great time together and she feels lucky to have found him," the store source reveals. "She was so sweet and seemed to be in love."

The two sipped on champagne in the trendy clothing store while Vicki picked up a white off-the-shoulder butterfly dress, which the source says she planned to wear to the reunion show, which is taping this week.

"Vicki also picked up four 'Faith' hats and Ayers picked up the entire tab for her purchases," adds the savvy source.

So will we be seeing this new man on the next season of Housewives?

Might be a little soon for that, considering Gunvalson won't even cop to the relaysh yet. But her new man is already tweeting back and forth with her BFF costar, Tamra Barney.

And that means it's serious!
