Vicki Gunvalson has a new love interest.
After splitting from Brooks Ayers just months ago, the Real Housewives Of Orange County star is now getting close to New York City lawyer John Pankauski, according to RadarOnline.
The 52-year-old blonde met the handsome attorney in early April over business. 'Sparks started flying between them,' a source noted.

Several weeks ago the two were spotted at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills together.
'He was meeting with her production company Woo Hoo in April and she had dinner with him and brought him to a Watch What Happens Live taping,' a source told the site.
'They are working together on a few business projects.'

The source added that John has asked her production company to do a promo reel for his law firm.
He is also interested in having her executive produce a TV show he would star in.
But meetings about business deals aren't the only thing the two have done together. They also both had their hair done side by side while at the
Kim Vo salon inside the Montage before Vicki went off to do a promo shoot for her new diamond line.

Next up for the pair is a trip to Phoenix, Arizona in late April where Gunvalson will appear at the Women’s Expo.
'John comes from the New England area and he moved to Palm Beach about 15 years ago,' a source told Radar.
'He built a multimillion dollar law firm which he owns, and has a winery in Napa Valley.'
The source added the lawyer is in great shape. 'John is single, 6’2”, 200 lbs, an athlete and avid tennis player,' said the friend.
In happier times: With husband Donn Gunvalson, who she split from in October 2010
'He has handsome movie star good looks and he’s a rascal too. He is a warrior and a fierce lawyer,' said the source.
Vicki announced her split from husband Donn Gunvalson in October 2010 but they didn't finalize their divorce until January.
She has two children, Michael and Briana Wolfsmith. Her son now works with her insurance agency.
Vicki, who looked pretty in turquoise blue on April 14 in NYC when she promoted her reality show on Today, was last seen with Brooks in August.
