While questions about his stage three cancer diagnosis continue to swirl on Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Orange County," Brooks Ayers headed to Florida to party with friends. Throughout much of Season 10, which the businessman appeared on alongside then-girlfriend Vicki Gunvalson, many of the members of the cast -- especially newcomer Meghan King Edmonds -- strongly believed he was faking his ailment. His recent actions may not help his case.
According to Us Weekly, Brooks was seen "living it up" at Cyn Nightclub in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with a group of men Saturday. Onlookers told the publication he was sipping on alcoholic beverages and did not appear to be in bad health.
"He honestly looked great and in great shape," the source said. "It looked like some sort of guys-night-out situation."
As we previously reported, during Season 10, episode 17 of "RHOC," Brooks decided to share his medical records with ex-girlfriend Vicki's close friend Tamra Judge. The pair, who were still dating at the time, sat Tamra, 46, down to show her the results of what they claimed was a recent PET/CT scan. When explaining the document to Tamra, Brooks claimed it showed three masses in his abdomen. As per Vicki's request, the Cut Fitness co-CEO shared the results with the rest of the cast. Meghan, 30, revealed that upon receiving a text from Vicki, 53, in which she named the facility Brooks had the scans done, she decided to contact them. During her phone call she learned that they stopped doing PET and CT scans for Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2008. Naturally, the new information created even more doubt among the "RHOC" ladies.
Brooks has addressed the "RHOC" drama surrounding his cancer. He shared with Entertainment Tonight that he is, in fact, battling stage three Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The former love interest of "RHOC" veteran Vicki told the publication the show was full of "manufactured drama" and, as such, he has put distance between himself and anyone involved. Brooks said he has stopped chemotherapy, but is preparing to begin another round of treatment in Los Angeles this October.
Brooks has yet to speak out about claims he was partying and drinking recently.
