Will Vicki & Brooks Get Back Together? The 'Real Housewives Of Orange County' Couple Have Done The On-And-Off Thing Before

Real Housewives of Orange County fans were delivered quite a shock when it was announced on Monday that Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers broke up. OK, it wasn't that big of a surprise, especially since these two have split before. However, based on Season 10 of RHOC their relationship seemed pretty solid, especially with Vicki supporting Brooks through his cancer battle. Ever since Brooks' diagnosis, the original RHOC star has been by his side, even after his battle with the disease was called into question by the other Housewives thanks to a psychic. But now that they're no longer together, is there a chance Brooks and Vicki will get back together? I'm sure my fellow RHOC fans are asking themselves that very question.

Before I answer it, here's the statement the couple gave to Us Weekly about their split:

After much prayer, thought, counseling, and consideration, we have decided to end our four year relationship. We both wish nothing but a great future for each other. We have come to realize that one can indeed love someone in their heart, but that the time may come for their lives to take separate paths. Though the remaining episodes of Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Orange County will show us as a couple, the filming took place in January 2015 through May 2015. There will be no further statements or interviews regarding our relationship as we choose to move on with our lives. Though we choose to live our lives in the public eye, we thank you for your understanding and ask privacy during this difficult time.

Despite that statement, which makes it sound like the couple is done for good, I have a hard time believing it. Based on their past breakups and reunions, there's always hope for Vicki and Brooks. I mean, these two really can't seem to stay away from one another, no matter what happens or who gets in the way.

As shady as Brooks comes off sometimes, he does seem to care for Vicki. The same also goes for the OG of Orange County. At times, Brooks appears to be Vicki's version of kryptonite, and I'm sure Tamra and Briana would agree with me. Whatever the case, if you're a shipper of Brooks and Vicki, don't lose hope just yet, because they always seem to find a way back to one another.

With that said, Vicki might disagree with me in my thoughts, especially based on what she included in her most recent Bravo blog. Check it out:

Lastly, thank you to those of you that have sent any kind words and messages regarding Brooks and my recent breakup. It was a very difficult decision, but one that we feel is right for our lives at this time. We looked at our future, and realized that although we love each other we were not meant to be together forever. I wish him the very best in his journey of beating this cancer and pray for his continued healing and I am hopeful we can remain friends. I ask that you be kind to us and not to judge either one of us. We are both experiencing a lot of pain right now, and ask for you to lift us up in prayer for strength during this difficult time.

Vicki seems pretty confident that she and Brooks are officially done as a couple. But, hey, anything can happen the world of the Housewives.
