Well it's about time!
All season long The Real Housewives Of Orange County has been surrounded by a bit of controversy regarding Vicki Gunvalson's ex, Brooks Ayers, and his claims that he has cancer.
Not only were there women on the show who didn't believe that Ayers had cancer, but Brooks ran into some more controversy when Vicki's daughter, Briana Culberson, claimed that her mom's bf hit on her!

Even after breaking up, Vicki still had her ex-man's back!
Well now it sounds like her tune has FINALLY changed as she admitted on the RHOC reunion show last night that:
"I would say probably three months ago, I really questioned him and said to him, 'This isn't making sense. Why won't you give me your reports?' And he kept telling me, 'You have no right…You're going to take them to the women.' You know, the usual way people with cancer respond when asked to show proof."
But the bombshells didn't stop there as host Andy Cohen went on to ask if Vicki was afraid of Brooks to which she replied with a timid nod.

Gunvalson even went on to admit that the story about her calling Terry, Heather Dubrow's husband, in order to find someone to administer an IV to Brooks was a complete lie! Vicki explained:
"I fabricated because I really was looking for compassion from somebody."
Probably one of the more shocking moments though came when Briana spoke up and said that both her and her husband, Ryan, had seen Brooks put his hands on Vicki! It was so bad that Vicki's daughter said she saw Ayers shake her mom so hard that her head was flying back and forth!
Though the reality star never confirmed or denied these claims, they're definitely very serious and very scary!

One of the final big surprises came when Tamra Judge revealed that Vicki had known Brooks longer than we thought! Judge said:
"My very first year on the show, Vicki and I, we clicked immediately. And she called me and said, 'Someone I'm very close to has cancer. Somebody that I have a connection with, and now I regret never carrying on this connection… And he's dying, and I feel like I need to go be with him and leave Donn and be with this guy.' And I said, 'Wow, OK.' She was crying, all this stuff. It was Brooks. And he lied then."
Brooks was of course lying because he only had pancreatitis at the time, an inflammation of the pancreas that is treatable and NOT fatal.
Well that's what we call a reunion!
There were definitely some juicy details to come out of it, but at the end of the day, we think everyone got some things off their chests. Hopefully this means the ladies can move on and be happier and healthier in their lives!
What do you think of Vicki's admissions? Is this a great step forward for her or is it too late?!
