It comes out next week that Don was having an affair for most of his and Vicki's marriage. Both Brianna and Tamra knew of it.
Brooks has been in Vicki's life for about 5 years. Perhaps not romantically but at least in a flirtatious sort of way.
I think there is a lot more going on in Vicki's world that we know about.
Witless Alsexis; I still don't know why the other women don't just come right out and say she is a liar and a pretender. Their gripe is that she's phony, but they never say exactly why....
She says she wears a ring with a big fake stone, why don't they just say they don't believe for a minute she has the real thing. Husband Frug has a different car every week, why not just say he's borrowing them, pretending to demo them, and cannot actually afford a car of his own. She and Frug lost their home b/c they couldn't make the payments, why not just say we know you're broke and lost your house. Frug rented a house, why not tell her they know it's b/c they don't have a down payment to buy another house. She says she's a news anchor, why don't they just say no, what you're doing is not news anchoring.
She has a "clothing line" that appears to sell nothing, why not tell her they know it's a failure. She says she and Frug have a wonderful marriage, why not tell her to her face the one flesh thing is a crapout. Alsexis is far more pseudo than the other women, they know it, talk about her behind her back and to the cameras, but don't seem to take her aside in private to explain to her moronic brain what a fool she's making of herself. The woman is beautiful, but an abysmal failure as a functioning human.

Put that way KatesMom, part of me is also really surprised at the idea of Brianna knowing about an affair Donn was having. However, another part of me says that for many seasons on the show, Brianna has hinted at her frustrations with her mother, thinking she's controlling, difficult to communicate with, etc. She seems like a level-headed enough person that I could believe it if she felt that way, and chose to not let on to most of it on national TV. Brianna just doens't seem like the "air our dirty laundry for the world" type to me like most reality stars are. So is it possible that she feels so overwhelmed by her mom that she saw Don as the closest thing to a parental relationship that she had, recognized that Donn felt the same way about Vicki that she did, and was therefore willing to look the other way? Strange things can happen when a young adult child feels loyalty to one parent so much more than the other.
If she wasn't at work, she was always talking about how she "had to get back to work". And when she told Brianna to "shut up"! Who talks to their daughter like that on national tv?
I'm also wondering who this Sara woman is they keep bringing on the show. I hope they're not thinking of casting her as a new "housewife" next season because I already can't stand her.
Oh boy. What does it say about Vicki that she's be willing to go back to Donn and reverse the divorce proceedings if he told her he wanted her back. This about a man who had been cheating on her for 20 years.
