On last night’s episode of “I’m Not A Doctor, But I Play One On TV,” Meghan King Edmonds continued to probe deep into Brooks Ayers. Summing up Real Housewives Of Orange County: Brooks may be lying about cancer, which makes it OK for Meghan to lie by impersonating a cancer patient and calling his doctors. Basically, the type of doctors these two need ain’t treating cancer, but psychosis!
Just to put this out there, since I’m NOT a doctor (nor do I pretend to be), I’ll reserve judgement on diagnosing Brooks. I’ll stick to what I am qualified to do: diagnosing the ladies of Real Housewives Of Orange County as crazy!
Brooks and Vicki Gunvalson finally visit a doctor. If you were expecting an oncologist – think again! Instead, accompanied by the bootleg copy of Yolanda “Lemons Cure” Foster earthing woman, they met with an eastern-meets-western physician to “rebuild” Brooks’s immune system.
Andy starts off by asking a viewer question. Why does Heather think Brooks and Vicki Gunvalson chose to show Tamra Judgehis PET scan paperwork. “It’s an interesting question. We’re shooting the reunion this week, so there’s things I will not say tonight. But I will say, I’m married to a doctor, I like to think I have a little MD married to doctor, Shannon goes to lots of doctors, Meghan’s been in the medical field, choosing Tamra was an odd choice.” Andy asks if Meghan really worked in the medical field and Heather says “yes, she worked in medical sales for a long time.”
Tamra is in the middle of heated custody battle with her ex-husband Simon Barney, and Gretchen is adding fuel to the fire by reminding Tamra that words can come back to haunt you! O-U-C-H.
Is Gretchen really in a position to comment on anyone’s negligent parenting? She says yes, because all those things we believed about Slade being a deadbeat dad were just rumors perpetuated by Tamra! Were they?
“Most of the women are making on the minor stuff in my opinion, and so yeah, there’s gonna be some questions being asked, but the challenge for me – if you’ve got questions, come to me directly,” said Brooks. “Don’t talk behind my back, don’t assume and try to put the pieces together. There’s only been one time that these ladies have ever asked me about my cancer and my treatment.”
Now that we’re heading into the home stretch of this season’s Real Housewives of Orange County, it’s apparently not all Aries parties and Woo-Hoo-ing for (former?) besties Shannon Beador and Vicki Gunvalson. Though she stayed loyal to Vicki and her many delusions aboutBrooks Ayers despite the ladies’ growing skepticism of Brooks’ cancer status, Shannon revealed her own skepticism this week’s episode. Which has led to a more serious rift in their friendship since then, says Shannon.
Shannon argues that she was “loyal to a T” when it came to defending Vicki all season on RHOC. But she told E! News in an interview this week, “When you’re my friend, you’re my friend for life. It’s just that there were so many different, inconsistent stories.”
Heather took to her blog to explain why she talked to Vicki Gunvalson about the speculation surrounding Brooks‘ cancer, “I felt obligated to pull Vicki aside and discuss my feelings about what was going on with Brooks. There is a lot more to this part of the story and it will come out, so you will have to stay tuned to watch this unfold. What I can say is that I didn’t want to be involved in Brooks’ health issues, real or not. However, it was Brooks himself that pulled me into it! You will have to wait and find out how that happened.”
