Well, it looks like at least one part of this ongoing drama is no more.
Now, though, sources tell

This is the moment the Real Housewives of Orange County ladies have been waiting for.
Just a few hours after it was revealed that Brooks Ayers was never treated for cancer, his costars came out of the woodwork to speak out on the shameful transgression.
While Vicki Gunvalson and Heather Dubrow have yet to publicly comment on the situation, Meghan Edmonds, Tamra Judge, and Shannon Beador have issued statements about the scandalous situation.
As for Vicki's former BFF Tamra, she always knew something was up with Ayers.
"I can't say I am shocked. I've always said, 'If he has cancer I hope he gets better and if he doesn't…I still hope he gets better. From day one I called him out. I felt he was a con man. I could see it in his eyes and nothing he said was making sense. He's a charmer, but then you get to know him and after a while his stories don't add up. In the end, I stopped questioning him as much, started accepting him for Vicki. I knew that if I let go, he would do it to himself. It's very hard to tell exactly what Vicki did or didn't know. My original thought was that he told her he had cancer so that she would stay with him, and at some point she figured out it wasn't true. But then she made the decision to keep the lie going. That's the part I don't understand…why would someone do that?"
Ugh, we really hope Vick didn't know about the supposed lie. If the reality star did in fact keep the lie "going," then she's just as guilty as her controversial ex.
Shannon echoed Tam's assessment, added:
"I am still trying to connect the dots. It doesn't make sense that Vicki would say she spent four hours with Brooks for chemo at the City of Hope when he was never treated there. The truth always comes out."
It looks like the truth did come out, Beador! We're glad you finally saw through the lies despite your friendship with Gunvalson!
But wait, what about Meghan? The newlywed was arguably the most critical of the businessman during AND after filming.
In Edmonds' statement, she explained:
"I pray for him. I would want to tell him that I hope he finds the truth somewhere in his life. The truth will set you free. It's a very sad and disgusting situation. I never believed I would be surrounded by such lies but hopefully now we can focus on the truth."
Wow! That's a very mature response considering the circumstances.
The midwest native elaborated in a tweet:
What a positive spin on an ugly situation. It's the cancer patients and survivors that are truly important — not some fraud!
We just wonder when Vicks will finally speak out. This scandal is going to be HARD to come back from.
