Vicki Gunvalson has vowed that she won’t ever be getting back in a relationship with Brooks Ayers. In the comments section of an Instagram post that The Real Housewives of Orange County star posted on Wednesday, Vicki said that Brooks is completely gone from her life and that her current relationship with her daughter, Briana Culberson, is amazing.
Vicki posted a photo of her kitchen that is currently being remodeled. A fan commented that changing a room does wonders for the soul, especially after a breakup. The fan told Vicki to keep Brooks, whom she referred to as a “nasty man,” far away from her life, or else she will lose everything. The fan added that Vicki should make amends with her co-stars and her daughter, since they truly love her.
Vicki responded that she’s completely done with Brooks. She vowed that for as long as she lives, he won’t be back in her life. As for Briana, Vicki said that they’re doing amazing and have moved on from the whole Brooks drama. Notably, Vicki did not say anything about reconciling with her co-stars Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, Heather Dubrow, and Meghan King Edmonds.
“He’s GONE! You have no idea what I’ve been through. He will never ever be back in my life as long as I am alive. My daughter and I are amazing and have moved on past that ‘issue.’ “
A day earlier, Vicki thanked her fans for their support. She admitted that she has a lot of unanswered questions herself.
One person who doubts that Vicki will stay away from Brooks is Andy Cohen. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Andy, prior to filming the reunion show, said he thinks that Vicki and Brooks will get back together.
During Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki Gunvalson stood by and defended Brooks Ayers as the other housewives questioned whether he really has cancer. Vicki maintained that Brooks does has cancer and blasted the other women’s questioning and investigation of his health. Vicki, in particular, got into a lot of drama with newcomer Meghan, who took the steps of calling medical offices and one of Brooks’ exes to verify his cancer claim.
Yet, on Part 3 of the Season 10 reunion show, which aired on Sunday night, Vicki, finally admitted that her gut tells her that Brooks does not have cancer.
“My gut says he doesn’t have it.”
When asked to say when she began having doubts, Vicki said that she began having doubts about three months ago. She said that Brooks was being very secretive, wasn’t answering her questions, and wouldn’t give her his medical reports. Vicki later said that she was duped by Brooks.
“Nobody wants to feel duped or being taken advantage of. I am a smart woman. I fell in love hard. And I did have red flags but not to the point of, you know… I’m sad but I’m relieved knowing I’m not with this man anymore. I’ve got pieces to pick up a little bit. I learned a lot. I got duped.”
Earlier in the reunion, Vicki said that she lied to Shannon Beador when she told her that Brooks was so sick one night that she called Heather Dubrow’s husband, Dr. Terry Dubrow, for help and he sent someone over to administer an IV on Brooks. Vicki admitted that no such thing happened. As for why she told that lie, she said that she wanted compassion.
While Vicki said on the reunion show that she was duped by Brooks Ayers and doesn’t think he has cancer, Brooks himself claims that Vicki has changed her tune. In an interview with E! News after the reunion finale aired, Brooks said that he and Vicki texted one another Monday morning, the morning after the episode aired, and she changed her story.
“She said no, she didn’t feel like she’s been duped and secondly, she does now believe that I have cancer.”
Brooks said he has no idea why Vicki changed her mind.
“You have to ask her. I don’t know why. I don’t know why somebody would change their mind as many times as she does.”
Will Vicki Gunvalson be on Season 11 of The Real Housewives of Orange County, despite the intense scrutiny and drama she went through on Season 10 and continues to go through now? On Heather Dubrow’s premiere podcast radio show episode, Heather, Tamra Judge, and Shannon Beador all voiced their opposition to Vicki continuing on in the show, saying that her lying damages the “reality” of the reality show. Yet Vicki has indicated that she will indeed return if given the opportunity, vowing that she’ll be back stronger than ever.
