Her boyfriend, ex-cop Steve, hasn’t met with the disapproval that followed her romance with Brooks Ayers.

It looks like the two of them are having a very nice time together.

Another night, another sunset. #paradise, #banderasbay #romantic #puertovallarta

On their first night at dinner, Vicki posted the following photo and kept it real with her #badhairdontcare hashtag.

You know a trip or two to Andale’s is coming. That’s Vicki’s favorite bar, and she’d never leave Mexico without going at least once.

In the meantime, she’s relaxing with friends in the sun. *deep sigh* Must be nice, kids.

    I wonder how many of her boyfriends/husbands have slept in the same bed in her Puerto Vallarta condo… 🤔 Just a thought! Lol

    • Trippinhhard

      Too many to count

      • Why is this happening to us?

        Yuck! 😝
        I hope she at least got a new mattress! Lol

        • Trippinhhard

          Girl you know most people don’t give a damn.. I would be ashamed to be seen with a new man every season.. that’s too many men for my old fashion taste..
          I’m about to get tired of my new friend, he has to see me everyday, it’s too much for me and I’m in the processing of packing and moving.. I finally cried about my house, beause my ex custom built this house forme..Closing is in 3 weeks and I havea week to get the hell out of here.. I’ve got32 yrs of thingees
          and stuff to pack up..

          • Why is this happening to us?

            I agree about being seen with a new man every season.
            I’m sorry things are so stressful right now. Maybe you can talk to him and tell him you just need space right now because you have a lot going on. It would be nice to get together a couple of days a week, but because you are moving and have a lot of things going on, you just don’t have the time right now to see him every day.
            I didn’t realize you were moving! Are you going far? This will be the beginning of a new chapter and it will be great! Just take it one day at a time. If he comes around every day, maybe he can help you pack! Lol. Give him some boxes! 😂😉

          • Trippinhhard

            Yes our home sold and I’m packing, He offered to pay for someone to pack me up and move me in my new Condo.. I’m getting cherry wood put on the floors because carpet is not good for my allergies..I’m splitting up everything with my ex except my bantiques from my mother and grandmother we have 32 yrs of so much stuff.. We have three Attics in our house and he built this house for me. He really can’t help because the truth is the tears drops from my eyespacking up some thing.. He’s been understanding I’m just not accustomed to seeing someone everyday. I just need to move and get settled and be happy someone cares enough to even offer to pay and have everything doe for me.. Then my ex don’t like stopping by a seeing him here, but he can’t say shit, but I can tell he don’t like it at all..if our house wasn’t so big, I wouldn’t be moving, I would have bought my ex out.. Its too big for just me and I ready to start my new house in the Condo I purchased.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Aww…that’s sweet that he offered to pay for movers for you. I know it must be hard going through and packing up 32 years worth of memories. You will always have those memories and take them with you wherever you go. You will make new ones in your new place and it will be a fresh start. Sounds like it will be really nice with the cherry floors!
            I guess the ex is jealous after all…lol. Well, he had his chance and blew it! Now you’re on to someone else! 🙂

          • Trippinhhard

            He’s really a nice and generous man and girl he’s so easy on the eyes, it pathetic. I’m just never been accustom to anyone doing everything for me, because I feel like I will lose control if the situation.. He’s starting to understand the adult, me is nor much different from the teenager he knew. My mother was adamant about not being a helpless woman or depending on anyone to do everything for you.. I didn’t in my marriage and there’s so many things happening at once, but I can only do one at a time..The Condo is beautiful and it’s 1800sq, with 3 bedroom and 2 1/2 bath, my grandkids love it, because I’m only moving a mile up the street .. I don’t like that HOH monthly fee and it’s gated with an off duty policeman checking you or anyone coming in and out..
            No one can just stop by, they call you to make sure it’s okay. I let them know I play my music everyday and most of the time all day long.. in on the end and they say it’s steel walls and 2×6, well insulated.. I wrote on my paper I play my music, because I don’t want them coming totell me shit.. As far as my ex, he’s just that and I will always love him, but I’m not in love with him anymore. I wouldn’t take him back forall the tea in China, and Chinese people drinks a whole lot of tea..Our time is history and we’ve had some of the most beautiful years together, and we’ve been thru many trials and tribulations and came out of it together. But when he took that job out of state, that he hates now, but he has 2 years left on his contract..Then he said he wasn’t charging nothing about hisself..I knew then, it was a wrap. Also money and power changed him tremendously and I didn’t like the person I was looking at.Oh now the scales is off of his eyes but it’s too late for us, but the next woman will get a good man that highly intelligent, faithful, good looking and will stand by you to the end..

          • Why is this happening to us?

            I understand about being independent. I am similar- I never ask anyone for help and I’ve always done things for myself. It’s nice to let him do things for you….but not too much! Lol. You don’t want him to think you need him for anything. 😂
            The condo sounds beautiful. You will love it. Don’t worry about playing your music- it will be fine. I live in a similar situation- I live in a co-op apartment- it’s similar to a condo I guess. I’ve heard that co-ops are usually only found in NYC and are mostly condos outside of NY. Everyone owns their apartment and there is no sub-letting allowed. No one likes those monthly fees, but here the monthly fees cover just about everything- utilities, home repairs, snow removal, garbage removal, landscaping, parking, security, etc. I figure I would be paying separately for most of those things anyway and it’s nice to be able to call someone if something breaks and not have to pay extra for it. I think you will love it! Sounds perfect if it’s only 1 mile from the grandkids- I’m sure they are thrilled!

          • Trippinhhard

            My brother just told me, that I need to let him know he’s needed.. I just left his office picking up some paperwork for a case he’s working on.. He even noticed that you look happy and he’s on top of the world.. So will you please allow him to do some of the things he can do to help you move on.. it’s really moving on fir the both of you.. I just have soooo many boxes of pictures, it takes one attic just of boxes and boxes of picture and recordings of everything we did.. He will be here at 5:00 for dinner and I’m going to ask for help. It’s hard because I don’t want to feel like I’m using someone.. I’m going to take yours and my brother’s advise.. He knows him better than I do, we were both very young the last time I saw him…. so I’m going to do what my older brother said to do..
            A man gave to feel needed, in order to feel good about themselves.. I just don’t like the feeling of helplessness… Thank you for good advise,I haven’t dated in decades.. It’s all new to me

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Your brother is right, he does need to feel needed, but maybe you can have him help you with the things that aren’t about your marriage- that might make it uncomfortable for both of you to look at photos together, etc. Let him help out with the things that aren’t so personal. Maybe you can pack up all the pictures and close the boxes on your own when he’s not there and then he can help you move them, etc. I mean, he knows you have a past and so does he- that’s just life!
            Dont worry about him feeling used- you aren’t using him and I’m sure he really wants to help. I think it’s sweet 🙂 I think you are doing a good job at this dating thing! Lol. Just go with the flow…sounds like you’re doing great on your own! He’s been coming back around, so that’s a good sign! Lol

          • Trippinhhard

            Thank you, I guess I’m just afraid it’s too much too soon.. I know we’re not promised tomorrow.. I need to get out the old ways of doing things, he not my ex.. He’s someone new and different in a good way.. that’s a good ideal just letting him handle anything that not personal.. I could use the help because my ex is sooo angry right now, he won’t do anything.. The twins have noticed a change in him.. I can’t worry about his feelings, because I don’t ask him nothing personal, I just pray for him and wish the best for him.. I know he thought I wouldn’t find anyone, any time soon, because I’m a home body.. Then to bring him around our friends and mt family is not what he expected.. I wasn’t taking him back if we were the last two people on earth, so I don’t get it.. I don’t care either, it feels nice that someone cares about my feeling and have saw me with the dark circles, and didn’t run away.. He understands what cancer does to the body ad radiation treatment do to some people.. Everyone does not experience the same things.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            There is no certain timeline to relationships. Each one is different and depending on the circumstances, some move and progress faster than others. There really isn’t a wrong or right way- just do what makes you comfortable. If you think it’s moving too fast, slow it down a little. You also don’t want him to get the wrong idea and think you aren’t interested, so be careful how you word it if you do decide to tell him. Just be honest- there is nothing wrong with wanting some space, especially now that you have so much going on with moving, etc. You are both older and have each had marriages before this, so there really aren’t any rules to dating. Just take it one day at a time and most of all, don’t forget to enjoy it! It sounds like you two are a good match and have a nice friendship and relationship. I’m sure he feels the same nervousness that you do. It’s nice that you are so comfortable with him and it’s even nicer that he knows you and your family for so many years. It sounds like he really cares for you. If he came back after you looking like that, I think you are good! Lol. He did see you all dolled up for the ball, so he knows how beautiful you really are. 😄
            I’m sorry about your ex. Don’t pay him any mind. Hasn’t he dated since you split? It’s not fair that he would expect you not to. You need to go out and enjoy your life too- Life’s way too short to be miserable. Do you think he perhaps thought there was a chance you guys would get back together? Or maybe he is still mad about the ball that you went to without him? Lol. He will just have to get over it. Once you move to your new place, you won’t have to have him coming around and just popping in on you. This will be good for you guys and it will give you your own personal space (that he doesn’t live in or own!). No need for him to have a key if he won’t even help you move. That’s not fair that he is treating you that way because you have moved on and are happy. I’m so sorry- I’m sure that is adding to your stress. You need to do what makes you happy and don’t worry about him.
            You are probably eating dinner with your man right now- enjoy it!

            We ate and he’s gone home to go over some briefs for court tomorrow.. He will call me later to say goodnight..You were right, he already had the company on notice and they’re going to pack and move everything, except my dishes, crystals and personal items.. He smiled and gave me a big hug for asking for help.. I’m so accustom to doing things for myself, I don’t want to depend on anyone.. I don’t know what my ex thinks or thought but I already told him, he’s not my future, now he still angry at me for going out on New Years Eve.. We always stay in and celebrate together, but the twins was happy for me to change things.. They understand us and he’s just jealous, because he knew him, but hadn’t seen him since we were first married.. He use to tell me he’s got a crush on you, but I saw him as a friend who I trusted growing up.. Oh yes he went out once since our divorce, my niece called me, I told her I thought you
            knew we were divorced..She thought he was cheating, I didn’t ask nothing about her, beause I don’t care, I just wish him the best.. We had 32 years and I’m not looking backward at all. I’m looking forward to my future, whatever that may be and Randyhad a man to man talk with him.. He let him know he was interested in he.. I hope to be in my new place in the next week and new freedom.. I haven’t told him where I’m moving to and it’s none of his business..
            He won’t be able to get in where I’m moving when he wants to..

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Sounds perfect 🙂
            You will feel so free when you move in to your new place! Maybe that’s part of why your ex is upset- he won’t have you under his thumb anymore. Oh well! He will just have to deal with it…

          • Trippinhhard

  • justsaying

    This drunk cancer lying scum doesn’t have any friends by far the MOST amoral person on any Bravo show!

  • Clare

    Is it true that Icky Vicki’s current boyfriend has abused women countless times in the past, even pushing one into a campfire? Absolutely deplorable. That despicable grifter sure has a type doesn’t she?

  • Clare

    I truly don’t know who’s more of a morally bankrupt sociopath, Vicki or Teresa Giudice.
