After their very public breakup, Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers remain on talking terms but for one reason only.

“I’m only talk to Vicki because of the Vodka lawsuit from 2013,” Ayers told The Real Mr. Housewife, referencing a pair of lawsuits over Vicki’s Vodka he and Gunvalson faced in 2013 from a former business partner. “All of the claims against me have been dropped yet my counterclaims against the plaintiff still remain.”

He added, “Unfortunately, Vicki is still having to deal with claims for and against her … So, we do talk strategy to help each other. It’s all business between us now.”

The former couple, who parted ways in August 2015, didn’t always have the smoothest of relationships.

In 2013, the pair had announced their split but reunited in 2014 after learning that Ayers had cancer – which later became a source of controversy on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Gunvalson’s daughter, Briana Culberson, has also voiced her disapproval of Ayers.

Despite recent rumors of a possible reconciliation, Ayers said that there was “Not a chance!”

“I’ve removed all drama in my life since I last saw her in August 2015,” he said.
