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.
Photos of the ladies not killing each other over cocktails and appetizers are below!
Tamra Barney had quite a year – she’s being called out and ripped open for her crappy treatment of friends and co-stars alike. And in retaliation, she got slaughtered by three well-spoken broads who weren’t about to be silenced. The days of nobody backing crazy into a corner are over – and when everyone says you’re dead… But that doesn’t mean Tamra is remorseful or apologetic!
Lizzie Rovsek is forevermore “hurt” that Tamra ditched her birthday. Even though Tamra like kinda said she was sorry by giving Lizzie a one-year membership to CUT Fitness. She probably rescinded it so Eddie couldn’t ogle Lizzie in a sports bra. Tamra doesn’t seem to understand people having hurt feelings, but later she’ll use the buzz word of the season when she realizes it gets you attention – and sometimes sympathy.
Last night was the first installment of the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion – was it me, or was that kind of lack-luster? After a season of serious hysteria and drama I expected something with a little more oomph, but it all felt watered down. Maybe they made a pact that they wouldn’t argue as loudly or as crazily just to spite Andy Cohen? Hey – stranger things have happened!
Can we just be done with Brooks? Talk about beating a deadbeat! He’s smarmy, he’s scummy, no one in Vicki’s life likes him, but for some inexplicable reason she likes him. A lot. So much so that she pretty much imploded her marriage to Donn over her “emotional affair” with Brooks, and she had to shell out big (in massive check form) to finalize her divorce. Tamra can’t forgive the recording of Brooks calling Vicki a “whore” and threatening to beat her (truly unforgivable) and Vicki has forgiven and is moving forward.
For those of you hoping for a resolution between Lizzie Rovsek and Tamra Judge, don’t hold your breath. Last night the ladies got together at Vicki Gunvalson’s home to relive their Bali trip with their husbands. I only watched the Bali trip, weren’t they there? Why would they want to relive that? Do they not remember all the yelling?
Last night was the season finale of The Real Housewives Of Orange County and everyone was ready to move forward. I mean after verbally decimating each other again. Or if you ask Heather Dubrow “pugilistically” arguing! Yes, the highlight of the episode was when Mrs. Perfect Always Right used her vocab word incorrectly!
The ladies are back from Bali and one person truly embraced the spirit of reincarnation to shed all the dead weight (did the fish eat it?): Shannon Beador! She’s a whole new woman – she and David are even sleeping in the same bed. Despite her issues with Tamra and Heather, Shannon wants to move forward (catchphrase of the night) so she’s attending Vicki Gunvalson‘s party with positive energy and no hard feelings. If only… if only feelings were likewise.
Over at Tamra Barney‘s home for the grudge-holding, snarling biatches, she’s still spitting mad that she got called out. And ain’t nobody gonna escape her wrath! Tamra reveals that she took an earlier flight home to escape the girls and now she doesn’t want to go to Vicki’s party because Lizzie Rovsekis the devil in an ugly dress. In Tamra’s mind Lizzie is something from an R.L Stine’s Goosebumps novel (4th grade reading level!). She calls Heather, who is now totally team Tamra. Tamra has a million excuses for all the horrible things she has done and said – and how everyone else is worse; Tamra spins things more than my washing machine. But unlike my washer – the dirt isn’t coming out!
Oh it makes me sad – but it looks like another end to an infamous reality TV friendship! After a season full of Tamra Barney‘s crazy ish-stirring antics, even long-time bestie Vicki Gunvalson is tired of the nonsense.
Vicki was visibly shocked after her Real Housewives Of Orange County co-stars apprised her of Tamra’s backstabbing behavior while in Bali. Tamra faced a trial by fire in which she fled the scene, claiming she feared saying something she’d regret. While Vicki had nothing to say at the time, she has plenty to say about Tamra now – and she’s officially over the drama!
“Tamra saying that I wanted to her to ‘go down’ isn’t the truth,” Vicki says. “I cherish my girlfriends and their trust, and there is NO way I ever had any desire to see her ‘go down’ or be hurt this year.”
“I’m tired of her causing problems and never being called out on it because of people fearing her backlash,” Vicki admits. “Every season and every year, she has gone after someone. I don’t know if that’s for the show or if it’s really how she is.”
