Brooks Ayers is defending himself after Vicki Gunvalson's daughter, Briana Culberson, delved into her distaste for her mom's ex-boyfriend during part two of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Orange County" reunion Monday night. Culberson, 28, shared with viewers, as well as the cast, that Ayers hit on her while she was pregnant and once offered to show her his genitals. Now, her mother's former beau is speaking out on those claims, vehemently denying them.
In a statement, issued to Us Weekly, Ayers claimed he never made any sexual advances toward Culberson. He said Culberson's behavior was "typical" of her, adding she was, once again, putting her 53-year-old mother in the middle of an uncomfortable situation. Ayers told Us he was thankful he didn't have to deal with what he said was "unnecessary drama" anymore.
"It's a typical Briana move, creating a 'he said, she said' scenario that once again puts her mother in the middle of a no-win situation," Ayers told Us. "I'm glad that I no longer have to deal with this unnecessary drama. I categorically deny having said anything like that to Briana."
During the Season 10 episode Culberson said Ayers made inappropriate comments toward her during one of her two pregnancies. She also claimed he once told her his nickname was "Girth Brooks," while offering to show her his genitals. Tamra Judge, Gunvalson's longtime friend and co-star, supported that statement, saying Culberson called her in distress after the incident. The Cut Fitness co-founder said Culberson was worried her mother wouldn't believe her. When asked whether or not she felt Culberson was telling the truth, Gunvalson said she had no choice but to believe her.
"I have to believe it because my daughter said it," she said. "I didn't want to believe it was even true."
Gunvalson and Ayers broke up in August. According to information revealed during the "RHOC" reunion, Ayers was the one who decided to end the relationship. He and Gunvalson reportedly began arguing during a trip to Miami before he told her he was done with the relationship. In a recent interview with E! Online, Ayers said he and Gunvalson tried counseling but found they just weren't meant to be. He said the split felt like a weight was lifted off his shoulders.
