The allegations that Brooks Ayers is lying about having cancer continue to unfold on the Real Housewives of Orange County. While the rumors are clearly starting to wear on Ayers' then-girlfriend, Vicki Gunvalson, recent episodes of the reality show prove that other members of Gunvalson's family are starting to get involved with the issue.
In fact, according to the Daily Mail, Gunvalson's own daughter has now voiced her own opinion on the matter, and it doesn't bode well for Ayers.
"When I first met him [Ayers], he said he had pancreatic cancer years ago," Briana Culberson explained to Tamra Judge while the two shared lunch. Briana went on to reveal that, after pressing Ayers about his history with cancer, he finally admitted to the lie.
"He broke down and told me he had pancreatitis -- inflammation of the pancreas that can be caused by alcohol abuse."In an ironic twist, the two were having lunch at the behest of Gunvalson, who thought that it might help her daughter like Ayers a little more. However, their meeting did the exact opposite, as Briana stated that if Ayers was lying, she would dispose of him herself.
At the same time, Judge also left the meeting with her own doubts. "I'm trying to process who would lie about that -- but he's clearly got a past," she stated.
Meanwhile, the questions surrounding Ayers' cancer has also started to drive a wedge between Vicki Gunvalson and some of her closest friends on the show, including Shannon Beador. With the show recently wrapping up filming for the reunion special, things between Beador and Gunvalson took a turn for the worse during a lunch outing.
With that in mind, an inside source told Radar Online that Beador pushed a little too hard for the truth during their outing instead of being present to listen to what Gunvalson had to say.
In contrast to this report, another source revealed that Beador thinks the entire situation has been overly inflated and made into something bigger than it actually is.
"Shannon just feels that this whole thing has been blown way out of proportion and it feels like Vicki is trying to deflect all of the blame on her. Shannon told her to get medical records because she was trying to be honest with her," the insider stated. "That's what friends do. Shannon was only saying that out of concern and she was just trying to find a solution."
With things clearly deteriorating between Gunvalson and even her closest of friends, the Ayers situation is clearly reaching a breaking point. Although Gunvalson has been firm in her support of Ayers through all the allegations, the two recently decided to end their relationship.
Vicki Gunvalson and the rest of the ladies gather for Part 1 of the Real Housewives of Orange County Season 10 reunion Monday on Bravo.
