Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge has officially joined the fight over whether or not Brooks Ayers has cancer.
The question over Ayer’s battle with cancer has been a major fighting point during this season, with most of the arguments occurring between Meghan King Edmonds and Ayers’ girlfriend, Vicki Gunvalson. With Judge taking Edmonds side on the matter, is she permanently damaging her relationship with Gunvalson?
In a recent interview with People, Judge stated that she has doubts about Ayer’s alleged cancer diagnosis.
“I’m not buying it. I’m not a doctor, but I feel like it’s fishy… I don’t know a lot about cancer but you don’t do three rounds of chemo and go, ‘ehh I don’t want to do it anymore.’ “
Apparently, Judge’s main source of skepticism surrounds Ayers’ decision to stop treatment, which doesn’t seem like a great idea. “I can understand if you were deathly ill and chemo was giving you secondary infections and you couldn’t leave your bed and you were so sick that you go, ‘I don’t want this,’ ” she stated. “But when you are going to Mexico and having drinks at parties and you’re like ‘ehh …’. It’s just weird.”
Judge’s comments came prior to the most recent episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County, which features an argument breaking out between Edmonds and Ayers. According to Entertainment Tonight, Edmonds asks Ayers about a rumor he started concerning her marriage to Jim Edmonds. While Ayers denies every starting a rumor, he was quick to switch the blame.
Ayers is seen responding to the accusation by telling Edmonds to think about who told her about the rumor, which just so happened to be Judge. “Consider the source?” Edmonds states in the promo video. “That’s saying Tamra has no credibility. That’s what that means to me.”
Edmonds went on to tell Judge about the encounter, who did not react kindly to what Ayers said. “Brooks said consider your source?” Judge said. “He goes after me? Game on, dude!”
Meanwhile, it isn’t clear how Judge’s latest statements regarding Ayers’ cancer will impact her relationship with Gunvalson, though it isn’t likely to go over well. Whatever ends up happening between the two stars, it is clear that things are starting to unravel on the show, and Ayers is quickly finding himself in the middle of it all.
