According to Meghan King Edmonds, Vicki Gunvalson continued to lie during her Watch What Happens Live interview with Andy Cohen to discuss the whole Brooks Ayers’ cancer drama. As the special aired on Monday night, Meghan tweeted her thoughts on what her The Real Housewives of Orange County co-star had to say about Brooks’ cancer claim.
During the interview, Vicki said that Brooks fabricated his cancer lie prior to filming the tenth season “because he got diagnosed in September, October of 2014.” Meghan apparently found this comment to be proof that Vicki continues to lie about her involvement with Brooks’ cancer lie. Meghan tweeted that someone whose partner was diagnosed with cancer knows exactly in what month the diagnosis was made. Meghan added that Vicki sent Shannon Beador a text on September 9, presumably to tell her about Brooks’ cancer.
“He was diagnosed in sept or oct!?I call bull**** @vgunvalson!U know WHAT MONTH ur partner is diagnosed.Sept 9 text to @ShannonBeador
Perhaps Vicki was just nervous during the interview and she couldn’t immediately recall what month Brooks was supposedly diagnosed.
Meghan later tweeted that she feels genuinely sorry for Vicki for losing her mom unexpectedly. Meghan implied that feeling sorry for Vicki losing her mom doesn’t mean she won’t continue to hold her accountable for whatever part that she played in Brooks’ cancer lie.
Let me make this clear. My ❤️ goes out to @vgunvalson for losing her mom. Truly. (Fake cancer & mom dying r mutually exclusive events)— Meghan King Edmonds (@MeghanKEdmonds) November 24, 2015
Other than Meghan King Edmonds, Brooks Ayers himself seems to have watched Vicki Gunvalson’s interview special. Brooks retweed several tweets from other people who criticized Vicki. One person’s tweet that Brooks retweeted called Vicki “pathological” and called her out for always playing the victim.
Another tweet that Brooks retweeted told Vicki to stop the pity party and that she’s “arrogant and disingenuous.”
Brooks also retweeted one tweet that said that viewers still aren’t getting the whole truth.
As viewers saw, Vicki and Brooks’ claim that he has cancer and the other housewives’ questioning that claim was the big storyline of the tenth season. While filming the show, Vicki stood by Brooks’ side and lashed out at the other housewives for questioning him. Yet, during the reunion show filming, Vicki finally admitted that her gut told her Brooks didn’t have cancer. She also said that she was duped by Brooks.
Several weeks ago, after the medical center that Brooks claimed he received treatment from confirmed that he was never a patient there and Brooks admitted that he fabricated medical documents in an attempt to prove his cancer to Vicki’s Real Housewives co-stars, Vicki told Extra that she hates him.
During her Watch What Happens Live interview with Andy Cohen, Vicki said that she was told a person can make themselves violently sick by ingesting eye drops. She said that while she didn’t know if Brooks actually did that, she did witness him with fevers, night sweats, chills, and saw him lose 42 pounds in three months.
“I mean the extent of what I did for this man, to cure him, is, I can’t even tell you. Time and money, time and money I spent on him.”
Vicki maintained that she was not part of some plan with Brooks to lie about him having cancer. She said that she’s only guilty of loving Brooks.
“I’m guilty of loving Brooks and believing him. That is it.”
Vicki Gunvalson did admit that she “pushed things under the rug” because she was lonely and that she chose to “stick it out through filming” because she didn’t want to deal with a breakup while filming. As for her The Real Housewives of Orange County co-stars Meghan King Edmonds, Shannon Beador, Tamra Judge, and Heather Dubrow, Vicki apologized to them but added that they need to understand the dilemma she was in.
