Just a few hours after the news broke that City of Hope denied Brooks Ayers was ever a patient at their facility, The Real Housewives of Orange County stars reacted to the revelation. Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador and Meghan King Emdonds weren’t too shocked to hear it, obviously.
The three co-stars spoke with E! and gave their thoughts on the situation now that this new info has come to light.
“I pray for him. I would want to tell him that I hope he finds the truth somewhere in his life. The truth will set you free. It’s a very sad and disgusting situation. I never believed I would be surrounded by such lies but hopefully now we can focus on the truth.”
“I can’t say I am shocked. I’ve always said, ‘If he has cancer I hope he gets better and if he doesn’t…I still hope he gets better.’ From day one I called him out. I felt he was a con man. I could see it in his eyes and nothing he said was making sense. He’s a charmer, but then you get to know him and after a while his stories don’t add up. In the end, I stopped questioning him as much, started accepting him for Vicki. I knew that if I let go, he would do it to himself.” Tamra added that she thinks it’s hard to know what Vicki did or didn’t know.
Tamra also added that she hopes nobody took Brooks’ supposed alternative cancer treatments (the juicing, etc) to heart without consulting with their own oncologists. “If someone in the public followed his treatment and his cancer was faked, and that person died, then that would be heartbreaking and tragic.”
“I am still trying to connect the dots. It doesn’t make sense that Vicki would say she spent four hours with Brooks for chemo at the City of Hope when he was never treated there. The truth always comes out.”
As far as Tamra’s statement about the alternative treatments, I agree. And I hope that nobody would ever take a reality star’s boyfriend’s advice on something as serious as cancer!
I’m sure these three will have plenty more to say as this continues to unfold. I don’t think it’s over yet.
Don’t forgot tomorrow night is Andy Cohen’s interview with Brooks in a special “Brooks Tells All” segment that will air before the Secrets Revealed episode of RHOC. It was taped a while ago, so I’m hoping Andy will give an update at the end about the new developments.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK BROOKS WILL ADDRESS THIS NEW INFORMATION?
