The Real Housewives of Orange County Reunion Recap: I'll Never See You Again!

by at .  Updated at .

Good riddance to Brooks Ayers. That was the long and short of it Sunday night on the third part of The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion.

The three-part reunion concluded with The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 10 Episode 22, and Brooks was the center of it all.

Literally, the entire hour.

Vicki Gunvalson's longtime boyfriend faced allegations both old and new, and by association, Vicki found herself forced to answer for her now-ex.

"I don't have any proof that he doesn't have cancer and he won't give me enough proof that he does have [it]," she said of the cancer faking accusations.

"So that's where I'm at."

That's an interesting position, and Heather Dubrow felt it didn't add up: "He's got something on you, you're too smart for this," she said.

Vicki then admitted part of her is afraid of Brooks, which opened the floodgates from Tamra Barney and Vicki's daughter, Briana Culberson.

Both women claimed Ayers beat Gunvalson; Culberson said she and her husband, Ryan, both witnessed him abuse her, separate times.

Briana then claimed that since he and Vicki broke up this summer, Ayers has kept harassing her verbally, including via new text messages.

Ayers, for his part, has "categorically" denied all claims of abuse, or that he hit on Culberson and tried to show her his penis for that matter.

Shannon Beador then jumped in with logistical details of how and where Brooks said he got cancer screenings "cannot possibly happen."

By the end of the night, Vicki said her gut was suspicious that he didn't have cancer, and he never came clean, causing much tension.

She had been repeatedly asking him for his medical records behind the scenes, before they broke up, which did not help their relationship.

Gunvalson also admitted to "fabricating" a story about calling in Dr. Terry Dubrow to treat Ayers one night with an IV after he became ill.

"I fabricated [the story], because I really was looking for compassion from somebody," she said, in a moment of honest vulnerability.

If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, you know the strain this has put on Vicki's relations with ... everyone else.

Time may heal all wounds - Vicki and Briana say they're in a better place now - but it will take a good amount of it to bury these hatchets.

In a separate sit-down with Andy Cohen, Ayers said that yes he has cancer, and that Gunvalson "misspoke quite a bit" about his health.

Ayers said his "numbers are normalizing" and his lymphatic legions were gone. As for his take on Meghan King Edmonds, his loudest critic?

"F--k off. How 'bout that?"
