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.”
“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.
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.
Simon has been called out by court psychologists for some of his statements. And he alleges that their eldest daughter does not want a relationship with Tamra. There has been drama in and out of the courtroom between the bitter exes. Simon was seeking sole physical custody, allowing for visitation with Tamra, and for Tamra to pay his attorney fees in the case. Yesterday they met back in court where it was good news for Tamra and their children.
The presiding judge dismissed Simon’s case against Tamra for custody of their two younger children, Spencer and Sophia, citing a lack of evidence to substantiate his claims!
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.

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.”
