We spent the entire season chasing down Brooks’ diagnosis (which came back “LIARFACE!”). After Brooks announced his decision to eschew chemo, everyone just wanted Brooks and Vicki to prove emphatically that he had cancer – non-Hodgkin Lymphoma to be exact, instead he did some Earthing and drank smoothies.
So here’s a run-down of the behind-the-scenes reveals:
1. The producers lie to everyone. Case in point: Alexis Bellino. Alexis insists she quit;Heather Dubrow and Tamra Judge insist she was fired. At the CUT Fitness party, the opening party for season 8, after Alexis flees following the onslaught from the ladies, she is overheard telling the producers, “This is why I didn’t want to come back!” The producers admitted they worked behind the scenes to convince Alexis to return – including that Vicki Gunvalson would befriend her, and by hiring Lydia McLaughlin.
Tamra has been training for months by lifting weights, doing a ton of cardio at CUT Fitness, and eating super clean – then she grabbed her glamsquad and showed off her muscles in an itty-bitty sequined bikini. #AbsForJesus.
Below are photos from Tamra’s fitness competition and also the RHOC finale party.
Instead of getting Botched, Heather got Chopped! She cut 6 inches off her hair (which otherwise looks exactly the same in every single way right down the center part), but she’s loving the subtle differences.
According to TMZ, the people training Tamra with the Polaris ATVs were telling her to slow down but she didn’t and then she andVicki Gunvalson rolled over several times, and had to be flown to the nearest hospital. Tamra is calling bullshit on the reckless driving and also denies the claims that she was drinking.
