Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Brooks Ayers is ready to reveal all his secrets about the hit reality show. After being at the center of controversy last season, Ayers has written a memoir about his experiences, including what went down behind the scenes with Bravo producers.
Ayers revealed his plans for a new book during an interview with Page Six. While a publisher has yet to pick up the work, fans can expect it to reveal a lot about what goes on behind the scenes of the reality show when it finally hits bookstands.
“[Bravo] basically pitched me as this poor guy from Mississippi preying on a vulnerable, successful, self-made woman,” Ayers shared in the interview. “I’m not bound contractually by anything to not share the intel about what transpires behind production, Bravo, what they try to do, etc.”
The biggest controversy surrounding Ayers last season involved the allegations that he was lying about having cancer. Although the evidence that has been released so far indicates that Ayers was untruthful, the former reality star remained adamant that he has cancer.
“I didn’t fake cancer. Who in their right mind would fake cancer?” Ayers stated.
Ayers and Gunvalson decided to end their on-and-off relationship following the conclusion of last season and the cancer scandal. Since then, Enstarz is reporting that Ayers has relocated to the Midwest and is currently living in close proximity to his four children.
With Gunvalson trying her best to distance herself from Ayers and his cancer allegations, it still isn’t clear how many secrets Ayers will reveal about his former girlfriend. In speaking about Gunvalson, Ayers explained that he is still on good terms with her and does not have any plans to ruin his friendship.
“I want nothing but the best for her and she wants the best for me,” he said. “I’m not doing this because she did it to me, but she’s a grown woman and she’s making business decisions to continue earning money. I’m a grown man and I want to do what I can do to rehab my reputation… and you can’t do it on reality TV.”
While he may or may not remain silent when it comes to dishing on Gunvalson, Ayers did admit that Gunvalson’s daughter, Briana Culberson, would not be so lucky. As fans will recall, Culberson included herself in the drama last season after revealing that Ayers had skipped chemotherapy in order to donate blood. According to the Daily Mail, Culberson was also very contentious with Ayers throughout his relationship with Gunvalson.
“[Culberson was] ‘paid handsomely the past three seasons to do nothing but bring drama into her own mom’s life regarding me. I’m going to expose all of that,” Brooks Ayers revealed.
Despite his claim to never have lied about having cancer, Ayers did admit to falsifying medical documents as proof that he received treatment. In fact, shortly after his lies were exposed, Ayers released an official statement apologizing for his actions and admitting that he was in the wrong.
“Words cannot express the deep regret that I have in fabricating documents to ‘prove’ to the world that I, in fact, have cancer,” he explained. “What I did was wrong and inexcusable. I acted alone, without Vicki’s knowledge, to produce documents for a reality TV show in hopes of putting doubts about my cancer to rest.”
Meanwhile, questions regarding Gunvalson’s part in the scandal remain unanswered. More than likely, Gunvalson’s knowledge about the cancer scam and how involved she was in Ayers’ lies will not revealed until Ayer’s book finds its way into a publishing house.
