Brooks Ayers is officially done with the Real Housewives of Orange County. In a new interview Brooks blasts the RHOC franchise for “manufactured drama,” and claims that despite what the doubters say he’s still battling cancer. Brooks also opens up about planning to sue Meghan King Edmonds if she doesn’t change her ways.
Brooks says that the women of the OC only attacked his cancer in order to create a storyline for themselves. “The only people in my life that I’ve been battling have been the women this year. And it’s nothing more than a manufactured storyline. It creates drama and relevance for them to be able to challenge somebody else’s illness. I simply wanted to share with people that you can survive a relationship in the public eye and be there to nurture each other — Vicki through the loss of her mom, me battling cancer for a third time — and it turned into a circus.”
Despite claims he’s faking cancer, Brooks confirms that he still is battling the disease but is choosing to fight it without chemotherapy.
“I decided I would go and try to attack my body in a natural way with not just Resveratrol, a whole host of other things as well, and then I would keep it in check and monitor it just like I normally would do. And what would I have to lose? At that point when I made that decision, after my third round of chemo, four months of treatment and eating healthy and diet and doing the infrared sauna and all the other things that I was doing…my numbers had not gotten better. It may be against my oncologist’s advice because he’s Western medicine, but this is my body and it’s a practice of medicine, and I did my own research, lengthy research, much more than Meghan could have ever done or does.”
As for Meghan, Brooks confirms that he did threaten to sue her but only as a scare tactic to give her a chance to change. “Meghan has scoffed that ‘Oh my God, Brooks is threatening to sue me.’ But what people don’t know is I have sent her a formal letter from my attorney…demanding certain things, and I do have significant grounds if she doesn’t change her ways and she’s got an opportunity to do that. [This is] defamation. I’m hitting back. She has a chance to make it right and we’ll see if she does or not.”
“[Meghan] doesn’t really care about me sincerely, she cares about being relevant on the show,” Ayers revealed. “And that saddens me, and that’s immaturity on her part. But my numbers have improved, and my inflammations are gone. I’m not out of the woods, it doesn’t mean my cancer is gone, but I’m heading in the right direction.”
According to Brooks, he’s only “talked to” Vicki “once in the last couple of weeks. We’ve emailed and texted on occasion.”
Brooks, who won’t appear at the RHOC reunion, hopes his former love can put all of this drama behind her soon. “Today [at the reunion] will be the last time Vicki has got to deal with it in front of the ladies. They’ll move on to next season, and they can pick on somebody else, and manufacture some drama. I care for her, I wish her well, it just didn’t work out [for] us.”
To intensify the drama, Brooks also took to Twitter and made new claims that he was “forced” to film for RHOC, saying,“@Denisec900 @irishreet @dawngpsalm63 Correct. Totally got forced into filming because I was dating Vicki. #manufactureddramaforrealitytv.”
Thoughts on Brooks’ interview? Was Brooks forced to film RHOC? Do you believe Brooks is only threatening to sue Meghan to give her the chance to change?
