Having lost her fiance, Jeff Beitzel, to leukemia in 2008, Gretchen says she is “appalled and disgusted that anyone would lie or makeup false documents about a very serious disease that millions are fighting against for their lives everyday.”
Vicki starts off, “I’m completely shocked. I’ve seen the bills, I went to City Of Hope. He was there all morning so how do you think anything other than ‘he’s getting chemo’, you go to City Of Hope because you have cancer, not because you have nothing else to do during the day.”
He shared in a statement to E!, “Words cannot express the deep regret that I have in fabricating documents to ‘prove’ to the world that I, in fact, have cancer. What I did was wrong and inexcusable. I acted alone, without Vicki [Gunvalson]’s knowledge, to produce documents for a reality TV show in hopes of putting doubts about my cancer to rest. I never intended to disclose my actual medical records or details about my private and personal medical history, thus the rationalization of presenting documents that weren’t true simply for a ‘storyline’ for the show.”
Let’s see Brooks Ayers talk himself out of this latest revelation! The Real Housewives of Orange County supporting player, who was front and center all season, has been flaunting his cancer “proof” in interviews as of late. “Proof” that was fishy, at best. Well, Brooks’ “proof” just went POOF!
E! news reached out to City of Hope after all of the controversy over the possible fake “chemo bill” that Brooks produced last week in an interview segment with E!. Brooks said it was proof that he was receiving cancer treatments at the clinic and indeed has cancer. Well, City of Hope just shot Brooks’ claims all to hell. The hospital spokesman shared with E! that Brooks was “never treated for cancer” at their facility.
This Friday Vicki and a mystery man were spotted at The Ranch, an Anaheim, CA restaurant. In stealthy photos captured of the two it appears the Real Housewives Of Orange County star is holding hands with the man later identified as Smith Walker. That name cannot be real – it sounds like it was manufactured from a BuzzFeed Quiz about what your name would be if you were a liquor.
“I have always been a really big supporter of Vicki and Brooks – Terry and I both have been,” says Heather. “I’ve been getting a few comments about why am I betraying her or ganging up on her, and I don’t feel that’s so. I feel like I’ve tried to give her every opportunity to be a supportive person for her. This all started because Vicki went on Watch What Happens Live a few weeks ago and said to Andy that none of the cast has reached out to her since she broke up with Brooks. I know she’s spoken to Tamra. For me, I texted her that day and I said, ‘Have fun in New York. Break a leg tonight.’ Even though I’m not happy with what the situation is, we’re cast members, I have feelings for her, we have a relationship, and I just wanted to reach out. She wrote me back a really nice text. I thought we were good. Then she said no one‘s reached out to her.”
