Even though Brooks Ayers #CancerGate is yesterday’s news, the man who claims he wants privacy is again speaking out to media outlets regarding his fake cancer journey.
Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Orange County revolved around whether or not Brooks Ayers was faking cancer and if Vicki Gunvalson knew his dirty secret.
Now, months after the season ended, Brooks provided a statement to Radar Online addressing claims whether or not Vicki knew he was faking lymphoma.
As it turns out, Brooks is coming to her defense. He says he intentionally kept her in the dark, a.k.a. lied to her, about his illness.
“I simply made a request to Vicki that we deal with this in a very private manner so as to keep out the noise of any questioning of my treatment choices moving forward,” Brooks said. “As a result, while filming continued, I began to not include Vicki in any of my medical appointments and/or details because I simply wanted to be left alone.”
“Vicki is a lot of things, but stupid? Hardly. A liar? Hardly.” He went on to explain, “Vicki is a woman of integrity and compassion, and would never lie about something so serious as this.”
“Vicki was not in on any cancer scam or created storyline. There is no scam. I simply didn’t continue to give her information about my illness when I learned of the devious nature and intentions of the cast. Vicki never has paid me to be quiet regarding this ‘supposed’ scam nor has paid me to release any statements,” he concluded.
Vicki has also stepped forward address his statements.
“First of all, I would like to thank Brooks for once and for all speaking out on this, and for reiterating what I have said numerous times. Over the last year I have been bullied, belittled, and humiliated by viewers, the media, and my so called ‘friends'”
