Vicki Gunvalson is speaking out on her involvement in Brooks Ayers' lies during Season 10 of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Orange County." On Wednesday Brooks admitted that the documents he presented in episode 17 of the show were fake, but maintained that he does have cancer. The longtime "RHOC" star claims she played no part in this scandal and had a few choice words for her ex.
As was reported by Us Weekly, Vicki, 53, was "completely shocked" by Brooks' confession. During an interview with Extra host Mario Lopez she recalled visits to City of Hope saying she once sat in a waiting room for hours under the guise the her then-boyfriend was undergoing chemotherapy. Vicki said she was confused as to why he would drag her to the cancer treatment facility because, by her understanding, people go their to be treated for cancer, "not because you have nothing else to do during the day." She added that there is no chance she would fabricate such a story for her "RHOC" storyline -- especially about Brooks.
"I'm completely shocked. I've seen the bills, I went to City of Hope. 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," she 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."
Vicki told the show's host she hates her former beau for lying and forcing her to defend him all season long as he perpetuated this farce. She said she was "embarrassed" by the entire situation and wanted to extend and apology to the rest of the "RHOC" cast. Vicki also claimed she believed whole heartedly that he would get what was coming for him.
"Karma," she said. "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."
Brooks admitted to falsifying the documents presented to Tamra Judge during Season 10 of "RHOC" on Wednesday. His admission of guilt came shortly after the facility at which he claimed to be receiving treatment reported that they had no record of him having ever been treated for cancer there. Brooks released a statement to E! Online in which he said he felt "deep regret" for lying to the public, as well as the cast, and said his actions were "wrong and inexcusable." He said he planned to keep details about his cancer and treatment under wraps moving forward.
Vicki's ex's diagnosis was a major point of contention during Season 10. Questions were raised about his diagnosis after a visit with Tarma's, 48, psychic in episode 14. The "RHOC" cast became even more suspicious when Brooks revealed he had decided to stop chemotherapy in favor of a more holistic approach. After much urging from the ladies, including Vicki, Brooks decided to show his medical records to the cast in the hopes that it would stop the chatter. Unfortunately for him it only furthered their suspicion.
While Brooks continues to claim that he is, in fact, battling cancer, his ex recently revealed that she has her doubts. During part three of the "RHOC" reunion she told host Andy Cohen, as well as her fellow cast members, she no longer believed him.
