Watch What Happens Live - Season 12

Vicki Gunvalson’s breakup with live-in boyfriend Brooks Ayers is a hot topic of discussion lately. And one has to wonder how current circumstances are shaping Vicki’s perspective of the rest of this season’s Real Housewives of Orange County, given that her partner in crime (perhaps literally!) is no longer by her side. Although Vicki does touch on her breakup with Brooks in her blog this week, she spends most of her time rehashing Brooks’ birthday dinner, and dishing on more of what we didn’t see of the intense grilling session that Heather Dubrow, Meghan Edmonds, Tamra Judge, and Shannon Beador had with Brooks about his illness, or lack thereof, at Cut Fitness. 

“Well here we go – the train has left the station so to speak regarding Brooks‘ cancer,” begins Vicki. “It’s interesting that Tamra’s ‘psychic’ and his accusation that Brooks doesn’t have cancer is being taken as the truth. Don’t we wish that was the case, but unfortunately it isn’t. Remember when you watch the rest of this season, I’m often put in situations where I’m surrounded by people looking to create drama. However, I don’t think this is funny or entertaining when we are talking about someone’s health. As you all know, Leanne (Jim’s first wife) passed away a few weeks ago and I had hoped she would beat her illness and unfortunately she did not. I’m still wondering in real life situations, would anyone really question someone’s diagnosis that was made by a licensed DOCTOR? I doubt it, but it makes for good TV doesn’t it?”

Real Housewives of Orange County Vicki and Brooks

Vicki Gunvalson’s boyfriend Brooks Ayers has been a controversial figure on the Real Housewives of Orange County for the past few seasons, but his story is taking a more serious turn now that he’s been battling cancer. According to Radar Online, Brooks’ recent 6-month round of chemotherapy hasn’t yielded favorable results. “When the test results came back, the numbers haven’t changed substantially,” he said. “They haven’t gotten worse, but they haven’t gotten better. That was kind of disheartening, to be honest with you.”

Brooks has been battling Stage 3 Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, specifically diffuse large B cell lymphoma, since the fall of 2013. Brooks now faces three options: more aggressive chemo (3-4 times a week), a stem cell transplant, or a more holistic approach – recommended by fellow OC Housewife Shannon Beador – which would eschew chemo altogether.
