The longtime friendship between Real Housewives of Orange County stars Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge continues to deteriorate over the question of Brooks Ayers’ cancer. In the latest episode of the reality show, Judge brought up the rumors surrounding Ayers with Gunvalson, who didn’t take the confrontation very well.
“If you’re my friend, you don’t talk about Brooks,” Gunvalson told Judge, who responded by telling Gunvalson, “That’s not what a friend is.”
“What does Brooks need to do: Die to prove everyone wrong?” Gunvalson then told the cameras.
The question of whether or not Ayers actually has cancer has been a major issue in recent episodes of the show. With Meghan King Edmonds leading the charge in the accusations that Ayers is lying, some of the other ladies on the show have started to express their own doubts on the issue, including Judge.
At the same time, an inside source recently spoke with Radar Online and revealed that the relationship between Judge and Vicki Gunvalson has reached a point that it is beyond repair.
“Vicki isn’t talking to Tamra and is vowing to cut her out of her life for good this time,” the source stated. “Vicki had been willing to give Tamra another chance after all of the divorce drama with ex-husband, Simon Barney, but this was the final straw.”
According to the insider, the fact that Judge talked about Ayers lying about his cancer behind her back is part of the reason she isn’t willing to move past the issue.
“Tamra went behind Vicki’s back for months betraying her confidence about Brooks’ cancer. Even though Vicki and Brooks are no longer together, she can’t forgive Tamra for this ultimate betrayal.”
Judge and Gunvalson have been through some rocky times in the past, but this time Gunvalson appears to be ready to cut ties for good. “There is no coming back for Vicki and Tamra,” the source continued. “Their relationship was already on a very fragile ground, and this was the nail in the coffin.”
For her part, Gunvalson was reduced to tears by the end of episode as she admitted that she wasn’t sure how everything was going to turn out. “I’m trying to be as strong as I can be … when you’re a friend, you’re a friend,” she stated. “I don’t know how to end this, I just don’t.”
