With the Season 10 reunion special looming for the Real Housewives of Orange County, one major question surrounding the special is whether or not Brooks Ayers will be in attendance. Given the fact that Ayers' battle with cancer has been a major story point during this season of the reality show, odds are that he will make a cameo at some point during the special. If that happens, will Vicki Gunvalson stand by him even though the two have since broken up?
As fans are well aware, Ayers has been at the center of controversy on the show as questions of his cancer loom large among the cast members. Although Ayers has remained adamant that he does have cancer, some of the women on the show believe he is lying about having the disease.
This drama and fighting between Ayers and some of the other cast members has meant that Gunvalson has been thrown into the mix, defending her former boyfriend against her friends and enemies. Naturally, this has led to multiple fights and confrontations between Gunvalson and her fellow co-stars, with Gunvalson remaining firm in her support even though Ayers has not offered any evidence that he has the disease.
Additionally, it would be interesting to know how Ayers stays positive and relaxed even though he is going through an intense battle with cancer. With all the accusations against him, and considering his split with Vicki Gunvalson, it is amazing that he hasn't lashed out at some point.
Hopefully, Ayers makes an appearance during the reunion special and answers some of these questions. According to The Real Mr. Housewife, that should become a reality as Ayers will be included in the special, though he might not make an appearance in person.
Apparently, Ayers recently had an interview with host Andy Cohen concerning the allegations that he is lying about his cancer. "Brooks met with Andy Cohen a few weeks ago," an insider told the outlet. "The pair had a taped sit down. [It] was similar to the 1-on-1 interviews Cohen is known for. This was truly Brook's chance to respond to all of the allegations that have been thrown his way this reason."
Although it is possible that the network will air the special interview in the next few episodes, the insider stated that Bravo is going to wait until the reunion. "They are going to be interspersing clips of what Brooks taped and playing them for the women at the reunion," the source revealed. "This will surely drum up the drama, as he has been a hot topic all season; however, it's only fair he finally have his chance to respond and be heard."
If this is true, then the reunion special is going to be filled with a healthy amount of drama. It also means that the issue of Ayers' cancer is not going to be resolved in the few remaining episodes of Season 10.
Catch all the drama with Vicki Gunvalson, Brooks Ayers and the rest of the ladies as the Real Housewives of Orange County continues Monday nights on Bravo.
