A lot of people have doubted how sick Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson’s boyfriend Brooks Ayers is but Brooks says he is sick! Talking to Radar, Brooks opens up about his reported Stage 3 Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. He says,
“I am sick. I do feel bad, but it’s mind over matter a lot of times. You gotta stay the course. When the test results came back, the numbers haven’t changed substantially. They haven’t gotten worse, but they haven’t gotten better. That was kind of disheartening, to be honest with you. I’m not so sure my body is responding to chemotherapy. At least the cocktail that I was doing. I’m not sure it responded like it needed to.”
One thing Brooks is thankful for is his girlfriend Vicki! Brooks says she has been by his side,
“She keeps me up and going and it’s been good rather than just routine, monotonous life — that’s not what we’re about. o it’s been very good from that perspective.”
So is Brooks going to put reality television behind him? He says nope explaining,
“At the end of the day, we want to show that you don’t have to lay down and let this disease or the normal course of what we think cancer can do take you down. You can continue to have a life and you can continue to be strong mentally and the things that we can control, we can control. That’s what we’re doing.”
Do you think Brooks should be speaking to media outlets? Thoughts on what he had to say?
