Vicki Gunvalson Breaks Silence on Brooks Ayers Cancer Bombshell: 'I'm Guilty of Loving Him and Believing Him'
"Who hasn't believed someone that you loved," Gunvalson asks after Ayers admits to fabricating medical records
Gunvalson, 53, broke down in tears when she remembered a time she had picked Ayers up from the medical center after he had allegedly completed his first round of chemotherapy.
“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 recalled.
Ayers’ cancer diagnosis was a major storyline in season 10 of RHOC as Gunvalson defended her then-boyfriend against accusations that he was faking his health condition.
“I’m guilty of loving him and believing him. Who hasn’t believed someone that you loved?” the emotional reality star continued. “And why would you lie about cancer when I’ve had three friends die of it in the last two years? I had my dearest friend just die of stomach cancer.”
If the latest reunion was any indication of where Gunvalson stands with the rest of the RHOC cast, she knows that they are owed an apology.
“As God as my witness, I would never want to make something up like this; it’s actually quite sick. I’m embarrassed. I want to tell the girls I’m sorry,” she told Lopez.
As far as getting back together with Ayers, the grandmother of two has moved on, even recently going on a date with a longtime friend. But if she ever crossed paths with her ex again, she has one thing to say.
“Karma,” Gunvalson said adding, “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.”
For his part, Ayers spoke out about fabricating the documents.
“Words cannot express the deep regret that I have in fabricating documents to ‘prove’ to the world that I, in fact, have cancer,” Ayers told E! News in a statement. “What I did was wrong and inexcusable. I acted alone, without Vicki’s knowledge, to produce documents for a reality TV show in hopes of putting doubts about my cancer to rest.”
