Brooks Ayers dumped long-time girlfriend and Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson on the dramatic reunion show, but has exclusively learned the couple is anything but over!

While the reunion show aired Monday night, it was pre-taped — and it was one of Vicki's original Bravo castmates, Jeana Keough, that first outted the couple for still being together when she tweeted on Sunday night, "@vgunvalson Had a great time with you and Brooks last night, and your grandson is so cute…."

The so-called split came following the release of's bombshell tapes revealing Brooks' darker side, on top of a trying season that saw him frequently clash with Vicki, her castmates, and her daughter, Briana Wolfsmith-Culberson, who was present at the reunion.

During the show Brooks told Briana, “You asked me before, ‘Do I love her enough to let her go?’ I do.”

“So we’re not gonna be hearing soon that you guys are back together?” Brianna asked Brooks, who was emphatic in saying, “Not from me, not from me — and that’s the truth.”

But it's not the truth, because according to a source close to the couple, they are very-much still dating.

"Vicki is still with Brooks. She just can't quit him," the insider told

"It's sort of complicated, but despite everything out there proving what a monster he can be, she still doesn't believe anything bad about him."

Another source tells the relationship between the two is toxic.

"They are the most dysfunctional couple you could ever imagine," the insider revealed.

During one of the couple's many breakups of the past, Vicki told in July, "My love tank is empty" -- but it looks like Brooks has given her a refill…for now.
