On the Real Housewives of Orange County last season, a huge chunk of time was spent on whether or not Vicki Gunvalson’s (now ex) piece Brooks Ayers was and is faking cancer. New Housemess and piece of dehydrated celery, Meghan King Edmonds, was one of the first to say that something in the milk ain’t cancer. In one of the earlier episodes, a psychic told Meghan, Tamra Judge and Heather Dubrow that shifty and shady Brooks doesn’t have cancer. They decided to investigate that shit and stopped short of hiring Detective La Toya to get to the bottom of everything. Meanwhile, Brooks and Vicki kept insisting that he has the Big C and those demonic hags will rot (well, not really rot since plastic doesn’t do that) in hell for accusing a poor, sick man of faking the sicks. Brooks recently claimed he got chemotherapy treatments at City of Hope and he provided the receipts. But well, City of Hope has released a statement saying, “We don’t know the bitch.”
During the RHoC reunion, Vicki said that she doesn’t know whether or not her ex really has Non Hodgkins Lymphoma and she has her doubts. Vicki’s daughter also said that Brooks is a grifting conman who has faked cancer before for sympathy. Brooks did a media tour to clear his name and during an interview with E! News, he showed one of his chemotherapy bills from the City of Hope in Duarte, CA. It didn’t take long for the Internet to figure out that Brooks’ “chemotherapy bill” looked a lot like the first document that comes up when you type “chemotherapy bill” into Google Images. It looked like Brooks just slapped on City of Hope’s logo. E! News also pointed out all the discrepancies in Brooks’ bill. A rep for City of Hope confirmed to E! that they never treated a patient with the name David Brooks Ayers.
A representative for City of Hope medical center reveals to E! News exclusively that the Real Housewives of Orange County star was never treated for cancer at their facility. Ayers’ representative has declined to comment.
I’m sure when Brooks does comment, he’ll say, “Well, since I am a high-profile celebrity I used an alias and the alias I used is, um, I’ll get back to you on that one after I Google ‘name of City of Hope patient.'”
Tamra and Meghan already released statements to E! and “I knew it!” sums up their thoughts. In her statement, Shannon Beador said that she thinks Vicki, who claimed she waited for Brooks for hours at City of Hope, didn’t know at first, but then played along after finding out.
“My original thought was that he told her he had cancer so that she would stay with him, and at some point she figured out it wasn’t true. But then she made the decision to keep the lie going. That’s the part I don’t understand…why would someone do that?”
Why would someone do that? Err, Shannon does realize she’s on a reality show where bringing the drama gives you job security, more screen time and possible a bonus, right?
And since Satan is the author of confusion, I’m sure he co-authored Brooks’ bill, because that bill is confusing as hell.
