Entertainment TV Tamra Judge Says Brooks Ayers Is the One Who Broke Up with 'Heartbroken' Vicki Gunvalson The RHOC star talked to Andy Cohen about her costar's recent split By Aurelie Corinthios Published on September 15, 2015 04:00 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Photo: Theo Wargo/NBCUniversal/Getty Images Tamra Judge says she has been counseling a broken-hearted Vicki Gunvalson since her split from Brooks Ayers. Judge, 47, briefly spoke about her costar’s breakup on Watch What Happens Live! on Monday with host Andy Cohen. “I talk to Vicki every day,” the Real Housewives of Orange County star said, confirming that “[Ayers] broke up with [Gunvalson]” to Real Housewives of New York City star Ramona Singer. When asked if she thinks the breakup is for good, Judge said no. “I keep telling her – she’s really, really heartbroken – and I keep telling her, ‘If it’s meant to be, you’ll get back together,’ ” Judge said. Gunvalson and Ayers, who dated for four years, announced their split in a joint statement on her Facebook page in August. “After much prayer, thought, counseling, and consideration, we have decided to end our four year relationship,” wrote the former couple. “We both wish nothing but a great future for each other.” The pair was on and off throughout the relationship, splitting in 2013 but reuniting in 2014 after learningAyers has cancer. On this season of RHOC – which was filmed when the duo was still together – Gunvalson has defended Ayers as the women have repeatedly wondered whether or not he is faking or obscuring some part of his stage-three cancer diagnosis. The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Monday (9 p.m. ET) on Bravo.
