Who fakes cancer, and to what end? Perhaps it’s to shake down lonely older women? Regardless of the reason, it seems like Brooks Ayers has finally been outed as the lowlife con man that most of the women thought he was for day one. Brooks Ayers relied on the idea that most normal people would feel guilty to suggest that someone was faking cancer, and that is what took so long for opinion to turn against Brooks Ayers and his cohort Vicki Gunvalson. It’s hard to imagine that anyone would trust either one of them after they lied about cancer and treatment. He said that he was undergoing lifesaving cancer treatment, and she said that she was there by his side. When confronted, she would consistently lie and say she must have been at work or away on business. Yeah, right.
The old gal of the O.C. has some serious explaining to do, according to the Inquisitr. Gunvalson even allowed the conman to insult and hit on her daughter, according to to Inquisitr, and she wonders why she doesn’t have the undying support of her friends and family. He told Briana Culbertson that he was called “Girth Brooks,” due to the size of his genitalia. Gunvalson told her daughter that she did not believe her. Now that Gunvalson has been dumped by Ayers after the cancer-related lies, she expects everyone to come to her support, but the ladies of the O.C. still want some answers.
Heather Dubrow and her husband Dr. Terry Dubrow of the show Botched want some answers before they would consider trusting Gunvalson again, as they believe she was part of the cancer scam. E! Online reported that Heather Dubrow wants an accounting of what Gunvalson knew about Ayers’ alleged cancer and when.
“The root of it is, Brooks is proven to be a con man. Tamra [Judge] has said this for years. I didn’t believe it until this year; now I see it. But the question for Tamra and Shannon [Beador] and Meghan [King Edmonds] and myself is now Vicki’s involvement in it, and when did she know? Because that’s…You know, he doesn’t affect us. He is who he is. He’s gone from all of our lives, I’m happy to say. But Vicki is in our lives. And when did she know? I think I said in the reunion, ‘We all agree he doesn’t have cancer but when did you find out?’ I said to her. So, I mean, those are the questions.”
Ayers has gone on to blame the Real Housewives franchise for ruining his reputation, but it would seem that lying on television to a group of women about cancer played a bigger role in the tanking of a reputation.

People Magazine claims that Terry Dubrow believes that anyone who lies about having cancer has severe psychological problems. That may be true, but then what is the excuse for someone that helps the person lying about cancer cover it up?
“If he has cancer, I hope he’s okay. If he doesn’t, he needs some serious psychological help,” Terry told E!’s Catt Sadler.
Either way, it is time that Gunvalson dropped her victim status and started working to regain the trust of her friends and family, many of whom believed the lies about cancer.
“I don’t love being lied about. I’m happy to be someone’s doctor. I’m happy to help out whenever I can, but I didn’t want to be pulled into this story,” said Terry.
Durban got sucked into the drama when Ayers, who knew Dubrow wold not break medical ethics to confirm or deny he gave medical advice, was said to be someone who could confirm the cancer diagnosis.
Do you think Vicki Gunvalson will ever recover from this cancer scam on Real Housewives?
