Does vicki gunvalson still dating brooks
I underestimated the power of social media, fellow cast mates’ accusations, and others from my past that were given a platform to air their grievances toward me. Through the first five years of dating Vicki, I was coined as a con man, low life, gold digger, dead beat, etc. To say that I took advantage of her in these ways is absolutely disgusting and quite frankly one must “consider the source” for anyone who discounts her ability to make her own mature decisions. What one never saw was my drive professionally to continue to provide for my kids and advance my career.
Nothing could be further from the truth in reality, yet this alone makes for great TV and for controversy. When it comes to a TV show, drama sells and every story needs a villain and I was the villain. Prior to filming Season 10 (which began in December 2014), I was given the unfortunate news of my cancer diagnosis.
I was not okay with that at all when I found out about it, however the information about my diagnosis was out,” says Ayers.
Ayers says that when season 10 of started filming, “the antics of Vicki’s friends” put “enormous pressure on our relationship,” causing him to stop sharing details of his medical treatments with his then-girlfriend because he did not want her castmates to be privy to the information.
Having lived under public scrutiny for the prior five years along with being wrongfully positioned as something that I wasn’t and knowing that I had a large battle ahead of me, I simply made a request to Vicki that we deal with this in a very private manner so as to keep out the noise of any questioning of my treatment choices moving forward. However, Vicki felt compelled to share a private email later that night with Tamra Judge and Lauri Peterson along with a text to Shannon Beador asking for all of their support during this time rather than conflict.
I was not okay with that at all when I found out about it, however the information about my diagnosis was out.
“Vicki was not ‘in on any cancer scam or created storyline.’ There is no scam,” Ayers says, adding , “Second, Vicki never has paid me to be quiet regarding this ‘supposed’ scam nor has paid me to release any statements.” Gunvalson, 53, was critical of Ayers and questioned his diagnosis during last year’s reunion show.
But in a statement to PEOPLE, she thanked her ex for speaking out.
Since I began dating Vicki in the Fall of 2010, I was the subject of much ridicule and hate. I pride myself in apologizing when I am wrong or have wronged others either intentionally or unintentionally. One of Vicki s famous quotes is: You don’t mess with her family or her money.“We weren’t engaged, we weren’t married, it was a boyfriend for a limited bit of my time.There is no status with Brooks.” The former couple split in August 2015. She is known for being a driven workaholic who demands perfection.” He added: “Vicki was my partner for five years and I believe the show was the demise of our relationship.“First of all I would like to thank Brooks for once and for all speaking out on this, and for reiterating what I have said numerous times,” Gunvalson tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement.“Over the last year I have been bullied, belittled, and humiliated by viewers, the media, and my so called ‘friends’.
