You know who could use a drink right about now? Andy Cohen. You know he’d just like to throw back a stiff glass of Vicki’s Vodka to get a bit more press out of this story, but alas, that won’t be happening any time soon. It’s a shame, given the now defunct brand is giving Andy’s clubhouse some free (?) publicity.
Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers have officially announced that they are “on” again and united as a couple while he battles cancer. Vicki also revealed Tamra Barney hasn’t supported her friend through this difficult time.
However, now a source is insisting that Tamra did reach out to Vicki when she learned the news! “After reaching out to Tamra on Oct. 10 to wish her well after winning her court battle with Simon, Vicki did get a message from her that said ‘wishing you the best.'”
The Real Housewives Of Orange County star confirms that she did get a text from Tamra, that she over-looked in the sea of texts Vicki received over Brooks‘ health issues.
Vicki and Brooks recently sat down with US Weekly to talk about the cancer, the status of their on-again, off-again, on-again relationship, and which of their Real Housewives of Orange County co-stars have offered their support.
Vicki said she knew something wasn’t right with Brooks prior to the diagnosis. “He hadn’t been really looking good.” She added that she “burst into tears” when he told her. “I don’t know a lot about Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. All I know is – coming back for a third time – it’s not going away.”
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week. Enjoy!
Home of the #1 ranked Mississippi State Bulldogs — and hometown of her boyfriend, Brooks Ayers — Tupelo was so inspired by Gunvalson’s “contribution to society” that the mayor offered her the key to the city.
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.
After spending zillions on a total facelift for a house that was supposed to represent the new Vicki Gunvalson, she’s selling!
On this season’s Real Housewives of Orange County Vicki has admitted she’s lonely in the massive 5,400 square-foot enclave now that daughter Briana and her family have moved out. Since she’s a single-ish gal again Vicki has decided to list her home for $2.899 million!
Sitting on 1 acre of land in the exclusive Coto De Caza community, Vicki’s newly renovated home boasts a grotto pool with outdoor kitchen in the backyard, 5 bedrooms – including a master retreat, 6 bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, both a formal and informal living room, and charming “California Mediterranean” features.
Never tweet after midnight because you might reveal too much. Or at least that may be the lesson Brooks Ayers is learning after a tweet posted at 2 am, seemed to be about his on-again and off-again girlfriend Vicki Gunvalson.
Now, these two have been on the relationship rollercoaster for years it seems. Which makes a lot of sense to viewers or followers of all things Real Housewives of Orange County. From the beginning, Brooks rubbed most of the housewives the wrong way and Vicki's daughter, Brianna, refused to be in the same room as him. Which probably made it difficult for Vicki to continue dating him considering Brianna and her family lived with her at that point.
But so far this season, it seems everything is unicorns and rainbows for Vicki and Brooks. But perhaps not if you read too much into a late night tweet by Brooks himself.
