Tamra Judge appeared on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” on Monday and was asked about her former best friend. During the interview the self-titled “instagrandma” asserted her belief that the Vicki and Brooks saga is far from over. She could “only speculate” but said she felt confident that the exes were still in contact.
“I can only speculate, but I do think they’re still talking,” she told host Andy Cohen. “I think it’s a matter of time before they get back together.”
This jaw-dropping suggestion comes just months after Vicki debuted a new beau on Instagram. In May the “O.G. of the O.C.” shared a photo with fans of an unnamed man and herself during their 10th date. Vicki revealed a select few facts about him, including that he once had careers in both politics and law enforcement, and is a big fan of country music. She did not, however, share his name with fans for quite some time. In the weeks that followed Vicki shared photos of them together at important events as well as the gifts he’d gotten her. It has since been revealed that his name is Steve Lodge.
Vicki and Brooks have been broken up for nearly a year, calling it quits in August 2015. The split is said to have been initiated by Brooks after the fallout from Season 10 of “RHOC.” It was briefly rumored that the pair had gotten back together in November 2015 — rumors that were started by Brooks. He claimed during an interview that Vicki reached out to him. Vicki was quick to set the record straight in a comment to E! News, saying he was “lying.”
Vicki has been open about the fact that she misses Brooks during Season 11 of “RHOC.” Tune in Monday at 9 p.m. EDT on Bravo for that drama and more.
