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.”
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.
“I sincerely cannot believe that Slade pulled this off last night,” Gretchen wrote on Instagram. “I mean to say I had NO idea is an understatement! So many of my sweet friends came to surprise and celebrate me! I’m still on cloud nine!”
“Now @sladesmiley I’m going to kill you because no one has ever been able to keep me out of the loop like that before and surprise me that well! Oh and also because I put my hair in a side braid cause I was tired from my photoshoot and did not want to restyle my hair. Not cute buddy. And you had my mom trick me too! Best Birthday in a long time!!” See photos from Gretchen‘s party below.
Gag me with a spoon! In honor of his award for douchebag of the year birthday, Gretchen Rossi gave a major shout out to her fiancé, Slade Smiley on Instagram. The mushy post was also accompanied with a photo in which the reality stars look nauseatingly perfect.
The Marriage Bootcamp stars have had quite a year, which unfortunately has included treatments for IVF, after failing to conceive a baby naturally. But this year — and perhaps next — will still not include a wedding. “We already feel married and know we’re meant to be together for the rest of our lives,” Gretchen recently gushed.
Speaking of gushing — read on to see what Gretchen had to say about Slade in honor of his big day.
After Teresa was sentenced and all the bigwigs sat around wondering what to do now, I was like, “Um, FIRE HER?!?” I mean, seriously! I was not shocked, however, to learn that a pink slip wasn’t on the list of options.
We start off taking a stroll down memory lane with clips of Slade from when he started in season one of the show. And then Andy shared a hilarious montage of clips of Tamra Barney (now Judge) slamming Gretchen.
Gretchen says “Tamra Barney has lost all credibility with everyone, including the viewers. She’s the biggest lying, manipulating, conniving, narcissistic sociopath. And I say she’s a sociopath because sociopaths don’t even realize that they do anything wrong. All they do is blame everyone else for their mistakes and that’s all she continues to do and the viewers saw it last season.”
