The Real Housewives of Orange County fans have waited for this.
Vicki Gunvalson finally opened up about dealing with the fallout from her relationship with Brooks Ayers, who on November 11th admitted that he produced fake medical records on RHOC to show that he was being treated for cancer.
"Words cannot express the deep regret that I have in fabricating documents to 'prove' to the world that I, in fact, have cancer," Ayers told E! News.
"What I did was wrong and inexcusable. I acted alone, without Vicki's knowledge, to produce documents for a reality TV show in hopes of putting doubts about my cancer to rest."
Gunvalson took to Twitter yesterday to respond to a fan "(I don't talk to him nor will I ever speak to him again. That man is sick," she wrote) but she went more in depth during a sit-down with Extra's
AC Slater Mario Lopez.
"I'm completely shocked. I've seen the bills, I went to City of Hope," Gunvalson explained. "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."
Things started to get weird as the season went on.
"I think that towards the end of filming, with the start of the psychic and Tamra saying the psychic didn’t see cancer, I thought, 'Well, then cool, he's cured,' but then it… didn't make sense and why is he switching doctors? He was at City of Hope, then he switched over to Hoag… and at the end of the day, I thought, 'That's his journey.'"
Gunvalson insists she had no idea Ayers was lying about treatment.
"I'm guilty of loving him and believing him. Who hasn't believed someone that you loved? And why would you lie about cancer when I've had three friends die of it in the last two years? I had my dearest friend just die of stomach cancer."
"He really didn't want to talk about it on the air and he didn't film that much this year, so I just thought, 'Okay, we'll mention it…' I thought it was just going to be over and done, I didn't want to promote it, I didn't want to talk about it… but the problem is you're filming a reality show."
"I think they thought I was in on a scam," Gunvalson said. "My life is so abundant, I didn't need to make a fake storyline, and I sure as hell wouldn't make it up about Brooks… As God as my witness, I would never want to make something up like this; it's actually quite sick.
“I'm embarrassed. I want to tell the girls I'm sorry."
Does Gunvalson wish Ayers well?
"I hate him, I hate him with everything in me, and I don't hate people, but I believed him, I trusted him, I defended him, took a bullet for him when people didn't like him."
