All the ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County are playing nice with Vicki Gunvalson’s boyfriend Brooks Ayers. After a workout at Tamra and Eddie Judge’s gym, Cut Fitness, the ladies celebrate Brooks’ birthday with cake and Saki. “I don’t care if they like him or don’t like him,” says Vicki. “I just want them to treat him with respect. He deserves that, we all deserve that.”
When Tamra asks about Brooks’ health he says he’s “pausing chemo” to try a new treatment. He explains he’s taking a new blast of antioxidants. The doctor he’s seeing now, Brooks explains, “had the same blood cancer that I did, or that I do…he did.” That slip of the tongue had some of the ladies — those who have doubted Brooks’ claim to having cancer — raise their eyebrows. But no one said a word. Brooks is going to do what his doctor did to rid himself of the cancer. He’s going to pump himself with 5000mg of Resveratrol a day. Brooks’ doctor told him that within six months, the cancer was completely gone. Not all the ladies seem to approve (Shannon Beador) but they’re keeping their mouths shut. Real Housewives of Orange County airs Mondays at 9pm on Bravo.
