Vicki Gunvalson's boyfriend Brooks Ayers isn't necessarily denying that he's an abusive cheater, but says the allegations against him are years old.
In a just-released audio tape, Big Bad Brooks purportedly admits cheating on her with hookers, and to physically and mentally "hurting" his girlfriend.
What was Ayers' response to the bombshell claims?
“Timing is everything,” he said.
“[It's] interesting to note that the (audio recordings) and videos recently released were recorded over a year ago about events that occurred several years ago.”
Brooks went on to say that he “chose to deal with [the situation] privately with loved ones whom I hurt, certainly not publicly, as it was no one else’s business.”
Both The Real Housewives of Orange County star Gunvalson and Ayers were being sued in a dispute over contractual obligations for her vodka brand.
