Vicki Gunvalson took to Twitter this week to respond to some fans who were wondering if she’s had any contact with ex Brooks Ayers following the revelation that he never sought treatment for cancer at City Of Hope National Medical Center as he claims he did.
The Real Housewives star says she believed him because she loved him and never would have dreamed he would lie to her, but now she realizes he has issues.
I don’t talk to him nor will I ever speak to him again. This man is sick…I am not the one who was untruthful. I loved a man and believed him just the way they believe their spouses,” Gunvalson said.
Vicki also took to the social media site to thank her fans for supporting her earlier this month.
I want to thank those of you who have called me, emailed me & kept me in ur prayers. There is a lot of ?'s I'm sure u have FYI … Me too!

Ayers reportedly claimed in 2013 that he was diagnosed with Stage 3 non-Hodgkins lymphoma, and after showing signs of a miraculous recovery, he said it was due to alternative medicine. But right away, Gunvalson’s daughter Briana smelled something suspicious. She said during a Real Housewives reunion earlier this year that Brooks hit on her at a party and was essentially busted in a lie about having cancer–he later changed his tune to her, saying it was pancreatitis–but when she tried to warn her mom, Vicki wasn’t hearing it. The incident caused a rift between the two of them and led to Ayers saying in an interview that the women on the show were causing problems where there weren’t any because they craved the drama.
“I think they do it to create drama. It’s useless drama that brings on stress that quite frankly no one needs and in particular my situation. I’m not running from anything,” Ayers said.
However, the hospital where he claimed to have received treatment has now issued a statement, saying they never saw Ayers.
“City of Hope has not provided any cancer treatment to anyone by the name of David Brooks Ayers,” said Tami Dennis, Executive Director of Communications.
