Why would someone lie about having cancer?!
Well, that’s exactly what Real Housewives of Orange County star Brooks Ayers is trying to clarify — he wouldn’t.
On Monday, Vicki Gunvalson‘s ex confirmed in an interview that he does in fact have cancer — despite the claims made otherwise by co-stars Meghan King Edmonds and Tamra Judge.
“I think they do it to create drama. It’s useless drama that brings on stress that quite frankly no one needs and in particular my situation. I’m not running from anything.”
Tell us how you really feel. LOLz!
Though for someone who’s sick with cancer, we could understand how frustrating it must be to be doubted about your illness. Brooks was diagnosed with stage 3 Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma back in 2013 but recently revealed that he stopped receiving chemotherapy in order to pursue an alternative form of treatment.
This news obviously became a hot button issue with the ladies of the popular show.
“My lesion, my inflammations were gone. Gone! So I’m encouraged. Cancer doesn’t mean I should be lying around in a hospice bed.”
Well, we’re happy to hear that the Bravolebrity is doing much better. In fact, the reality star even took to Twitter to address some Real Housewives fans’ doubt regarding his disease.
It’ll be inneresting to see how this all plays out for the rest of the season. Be sure to ch-ch-check out all the drama on Mondays at 9 p.m. E.T./P.T. on Bravo.
