Reality star Brooks Ayers, infamous for being the nefarious boyfriend of Vicki Gunvalson - and the subject of many a feud – just revealed that he has progressive stage 3 Non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
“My reality is that I have, once again, been diagnosed with a form of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma specifically diffuse large B cell lymphoma,” the Real Housewives Of Orange County star shared. Brooks was initially diagnosed in the fall of 2013. Interestingly this was never included in RHOC as a storyline – or even mentioned on the show.
The Golden Foodie Awards recognizes excellence in the local food scene and celebrates independent restaurants and chefs. Shannon presented alongside husband David Beador, you know, now that everything’s good there and they’re sleeping in the same bed. And Heather was there because she’s sort of an expert on food given that she was one time opening a restaurant.
Photos of the ladies not killing each other over cocktails and appetizers are below!
On a related note, Amy recently shared her favorite Real Housewives moment, the RHOC trip to British Columbia. “All of the women were dressed head-to-toe in their best winter apparel and strapped into their downhill skis, ready to hit the slopes when Lauri decided to accuse Vicki of having sex with multiple partners,” recalled Amy. “This public display of crazy was a gift from the heavens.”
Anyway, Gretchen has been trying to have Slade Smiley‘s babies for a while now and unfortunately things just aren’t working out naturally so the couple is turning to fertility treatments. Sharing that the decision to consider fertility was a painful one, Gretchen admits that she had “mourn the loss of making a baby the natural way” before she accepted the situation.
Question: Didn’t El Slave-o have a vasectomy a while back?
Yesterday Tamra went to court with ex-husband Simon Barney to continue working on their custody dispute – and that wasn’t the only dispute Tamra dealt with that day. She reportedly got into a screaming argument with Simon’s girlfriend Catushia Ienni! The exes are in court because Simon accused Tamra of neglect and is attempting to get full custody of their three minor children, Sydney, Spencer, and Sophia.
Yesterday, Tamra, armed with her attorney and child psychologist Renee Hulse, set out to prove otherwise as both sides’ attorneys met with the judge in chambers. Unfortunately most of the drama happened outside of the courtroom!
Well, now Peggy asserts that following the reunion, RHOC producers have asked her to return! “They called me to see if I had any interest again or if any of my friends did. I said no. I now have two shows I’m in production on.”
After taking their turn as the villains, professional elitists with overly-high opinions of themselves,Terry and Heather Dubrow are super unhappy with the show that elevated their careers and essentially made them famous. And now Terry is issuing the old “editing made me look bad!”complaints! Because of this, Terry says he quit! He also silences those rumors that Tamra Barney was fired!
This weekend Alexis Bellino renewed her vows to Jim Bellino in an over-the-top wedding that wasn’t a wedding on David Tutera‘s CELEBrations. And I can see why all of Alexis’ Real Housewives of Orange County castmates couldn’t stand her because Alexis needs sedatives – or some sort of psychiatric drugs. She constantly throws tantrums and is mega attention seeking!
Alexis wants David at her beck and call and treats him like ‘the help’. Two queens don’t make a right! To add to the drama, David is also in the middle of planning his daughter Cielo’s first birthday party and is strapped for time.
Jim surprised Alexis with the concept of a ten-year anniversary renewal by hiring poor to David show up at their house unannounced while Alexis was ‘reading’ the Bible (translation: looking at a children’s picture book version of a Bible while wearing knock-off Chanel). Jim’s surprise gift is that he wants the party to be in a week and he wants something classy and elegant – the irony of classy and elegant being used to describe anything related to Alexis does not escape me. Or David, who smirks at the correlation.
