Real Housewives of Orange County

Heather Dubrow

For the most part, Heather Dubrow has managed to stay out of the nonsense on Real Housewives of Orange County this season. Until now. Heather especially did NOT want to be pulled into the Brooks Ayers cancer drama, but here we are…

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.”

Brooks Ayers

In October 2014, Brooks Ayers told the world that he has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma for the third time. His on-again, off-again relationship with Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson was “on” at the time. Vicki immediately invited Brooks to move into her home so they could go through the battle together.

Because we cannot have nice things, Brooks‘ cancer and choice of treatments became the focus of Real Housewives of Orange County season 10 thanks to the poisonous web Tamra Judge spun. Her very creepy little mini me spider, Meghan King Edmonds, took the venom and ran. And ran. And ran. Meghan has gone to great lengths to prove Brooks faked his cancer. Brooks and Vicki insist the truth will come out (in their favor) on the show, but this week’s episode prompted Brooks to speak out now.

Vicki Cracks

Things are unraveling on Real Housewives Of Orange County. I’m not sure if it’s because Vicki Gunvalson is getting caught in a lie, as Shannon Beador and Meghan King Edmonds presuppose, or if Vicki is collapsing under the pressure of despotic, backstabbing friends, the stress of a failing and disconcerting relationship, and the death of her mom. 

Back at Shannon’s Aries party, Tamra Judge is spitting mad that Vicki is allowing Brooks to call her a liar and a backstabber. The unladylike doth protests too much! 

Tamra believes Vicki is so influenced by Brooks (and his lies) she may be turning into Brooks! Shannon is hard-pressed to believe that the never, ever dim-witted Vicki could be bamboozled by a con man, so possibly, just possibly, she knows Brooks is faking cancer but is going along with it. Even Tamra can’t believe that – or at least that’s what Tamra is telling the cameras because the only time Tamra has Vicki’s back is when she’s stabbing it!

Current and former Real Housewives of Orange County stars Gretchen Rossi and Shannon Beador livened things up on Watch What Happens Live tonight.   The ladies agreed to disagree on Tamra Judge, dished on Brooks Ayers’ cancer debate, and Gretchen talked about Slade Smiley’s job status and much more! 

Shannon on the current state of her relationship with Vicki Gunvalson: “We’re not speaking.”  Does she think it’ll ever be the same? “No.”  She’s still irked that Vicki denies asking for help, but she says she would’ve helped even if Vicki hadn’t. 

Gretchen Rossi & Slade Smiley At NYFW 2015

Gretchen Rossi may not know much, but she certainly knows a thing or two about being judged for the company you keep and the integrity of your significant other! While Vicki Gunvalson and her now-ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers are being judged and questioned constantly, Gretchen has certainly walked a mile in Vicki’s Manolos and is imparting some advice.

It is pretty uncanny that Gretchen and Vicki’s lives have some eerily similar parallels. The boyfriend nobody likes (or trusts), the significant other with cancer, the constantly having to defend your love and your relationship to people who barely know you…  

In her past life as a Real Housewives of Orange County star, Gretchen’s joined the show while her then-fiancé Jeff was battling terminal cancer. He ultimately passed away in between seasons. Gretchen eventually started dating her current fiancé Slade Smiley, who battled both deadbeat dad-ism and his son Grayson’s cancer. And absolutely NOBODY liked Slave!

Meghan admits to stalking

Meghan King Edmonds has many things she would like to clear up and she’d also like to defend her title as World’s Coolest Stepmom (more like World’s Craziest Stepmom!) Reacting to last night’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County when Meghan confessed to what amounts to stalking Brooks Ayers – dang why are so many ladies obsessed with this man (#dickmatized!) – she insists she truly believed Brooks had cancer (she did?) and was just trying to help (by hunting down his exes?).

Because Meghan feels her actions were done with purity of heart, she doesn’t owe anyone an apology. Just how far is Pink Panther planning to take this quest for justice? #Knowledge

Watch What Happens Live - Season 12

Shannon Beador begins this week’s blog with a similar sentiment she seems to express weekly: discomfort. But this time the discomfort is not from watching her marriage crumble on TV; it’s from dealing with the sketchy Brooks Ayers situation the Real Housewives of Orange County has unfortunately made its central storyline this season. Shannon shares, “This episode is heart pounding and uncomfortable for me to watch. So much information keeps coming up and I don’t like the position I am in.”

Shannon claims she was taken aback by the lengths Meghan Edmonds will go to in order to “get to the bottom” of Brooks‘ story.  She confesses, “Dinner with Heather [Dubrow] and Meghan was shocking. The speculation and conversations about Brooks’ illness are not stopping and the women continue to ask me why Brooks has not seen one of the world-renowned doctors I referred to him. I don’t have the answer to that question. It is quite clear that Meghan wants to get to the bottom of things. I would never pick up a phone and pretend that I was sick to get information. She will clearly do whatever it takes to try and gather information.”

Meghan Goes Too Far on RHOC

Confusing times on Real Housewives Of Orange County! Brooks makes me suspicious, yet Meghan Edmonds makes me equally suspicious. Whose motive is weirder?! I love a mystery – Veronica Mars is my favorite show, but Meghan makes amateur private investigators everywhere look psycho. 

Brooks Ayers is a professional liar, smooth as snake oil and slathering it on Vicki Gunvalson as the serum of youth. Meghan is a two-bit phony, but she has two luxuries: Time and Vendetta (and internet access). This will not end well. 

Things begin with Meghan meeting Heather Dubrow and Shannon for dinner. Everyone gets along now because Shannon saw the light that Meghan is always right (AKA, get along well enough to talk ish about Vicki).
