Brooks Ayers’ Cancer
Ayers, Vicki Gunvalson‘s ex-boyfriend, was at the center of the drama during the three-part reunion special for Real Housewives. Many members of the cast expressed their doubts about whether or not he actually had cancer, including Gunvalson. Now, Ayers has decided to offer proof of his illness.
“These are the three bills that reference the days I got my treatment,” Ayers told E! News, sharing a document that showed he received chemo treatment for $33,000 for his stage three non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. “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.”
“I have more tests coming up in two months,” Ayers added. “I go back every 90 days. I don’t get a scan every 90 days but I get blood work done every 90 days.”
Though Gunvalson had initially backed Ayers when her pals questioned his diagnosis, the reunion show featured Gunvalson expressing her own doubts. Ayers admits he found it troubling to witness, but he acknowledged that Gunvalson has since reached out to apologize.
“She said, ‘Brooks, I believe you. I just need for you to make this right so we can prove everybody wrong and I’m sorry that I said what I did on the reunion. I got backed into a corner,'” Ayers shared with E! News.
