Real Housewives of Orange County’s Vicki Gunvalson’s ex Brooks Ayers is facing another round of allegations following his latest attempt to set the record straight in regards to his lies about having cancer. According to E! News, the medical records that Ayers offered up for examination during his interview with Melanie Bromley are full of inaccuracies.
In fact, the documents that Ayers provided as proof of his cancer do not match up with known records from the same facility. Going by the documents, Ayers was treated for his cancer at City of Hope hospital in California, but the letterhead, address, patient name, and overall formatting do not line up with legitimate paperwork from the same hospital. Does this mean Ayers forged the documents?
Meanwhile, according to Radar Online, the documents are the only evidence Ayers has supplied as proof that he was diagnosed and treated for cancer. Apparently, Ayers thinks that the documents are good enough, despite their obvious errors and inconsistencies.
“These are the three bills that reference the days I got my treatment,” Ayers told Bromley during the interview. “I’m not going to say I’m in remission. That’s not going to be the case until my numbers have normalized and that’s the word that was used to me.”
However, in addition to the formatting errors, Reality Tea is reporting that the list of chemotherapy drugs found in the documents provided by Ayers are very close to a similar bill found online. This opens the possibility that Ayers may have simply searched for a chemotherapy bill on Google and copied it over to his template.
At the same, despite this so-called evidence, many of the Housewives on the reality show are still not buying Ayers’ side of the story. In fact, Meghan King Edmonds recently told E! News that she feels vindicated now that her fellow cast members are on her side.
“To accuse someone of faking cancer is a huge accusation that you should never take lightly, but I felt that way and that’s why I said it and that’s what started it,” she explained in the interview. “To see the other woman now say ‘yah, you’re right. It doesn’t add up. It doesn’t make sense. This is a lie,’ it feels good because I’m not crazy. I have seen evidence and the evidence points to a lie.”
Perhaps even more damning to Ayers’ case are the recent comments from ex-girlfriend Vicki Gunvalson. Although she chose to stick by Ayers throughout the majority of the season, adamantly defending him against her fellow co-stars, Gunvalson recently changed her mind during the latest reunion episode.
“My gut says he does not have [cancer],” she told the ladies of RHOC and Andy Cohen. “I don’t have any proof that he doesn’t have cancer and he won’t give me enough proof that he does have cancer, so that’s where I’m at.”
Gunvalson’s comments are particularly telling, especially considering the documents Ayers recently released as proof that he does have cancer. Notably, it begs the question that if Gunvalson doesn’t believe him, then why should anyone else?
With the majority of the season now over, only time will reveal the truth about whether or not Ayers actually has cancer. In the meantime, fans will get to hear more from Ayers and the ladies on the show when The Real Housewives of Orange County: Brooks Tells All airs November 12 on Bravo. This will be followed by the last episode this season, The Real Housewives of Orange County: Secrets Revealed, which is set to premiere on the same night.
