The Real Housewives of Orange County season 10 finale airs tonight, and ahead of the new episode, Brooks Ayers, who has been targeted throughout the season by allegations of having faked his cancer diagnosis, took to Twitter where he spoke of “negative” people.

On October 11, Ayers, the ex-boyfriend of longtime Real Housewives star Vicki Gunvalson, wrote, “Negative people usually have negative bank accounts to match.”
While Ayers’ tweet seems to be aimed at his Real Housewives co-star, Meghan King Edmonds, he didn’t mention her name — or anyone else’s.
For nearly the entirety of season 10 of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Edmonds, as well as many of her Real Housewives co-stars, have either accused Brook’s outright of faking his cancer diagnosis or suggested he might be doing so. Since late 2013, Ayers has claimed he is suffering from stage 3 Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, but due to his unconventional treatment plan, and his strange reaction to chemotherapy treatments, Edmonds and other have doubted his cancer is real. According to Edmonds, she’s seen cancer and how it progresses, and Ayers’ battle with the illness simply doesn’t add up.
In response to the speculation on his diagnosis, the Real Housewives star chose to reveal his medical records to his co-star, Tamra Barney, a close friend of Gunvalson. However, Barney claimed she didn’t understand the documents and went on to question whether it was possible for blood cancer to lead to masses. Then, when Barney spoke to her Real Housewives co-stars about the documents, Edmonds claimed they were likely “forged.”
Following filming on the 10th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Ayers sent a letter of cease and desist to Edmonds, demanding she stop accusing him of faking his diagnosis. Also in the letter, Ayers reportedly threatened his Real Housewives co-star with a lawsuit. However, in an interview with PEOPLE Magazine days after the letter was sent, Edmonds claimed she wasn’t at all worried about the possible suit, claiming Ayers knows “he’s a liar.” Edmonds also continued to speak about the issue on social media, but at this point, Ayers has quit responding to her allegations. In fact, Ayers recently sent out a tweet to his many fans online, claiming he’s been advised against speaking any further on the claims made against him.
On August 16, the former Real Housewives couple announced on Facebook that they were no longer an item. They issued a joint statement on the end of their relationship.
“After much prayer, thought, counseling, and consideration, we have decided to end our four year relationship. We both wish nothing but a great future for each other. We have come to realize that one can indeed love someone in their heart, but that the time may come for their lives to take separate paths. Though the remaining episodes of Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Orange County will show us as a couple, the filming took place in January 2015 through May 2015. There will be no further statements or interviews regarding our relationship as we choose to move on with our lives. Though we choose to live our lives in the public eye we thank you for your understanding and ask privacy during this difficult time.”
Following the Real Housewives couple’s breakup, Ayers moved to Florida from Southern California, where he had been living with Gunvalson.
