Vicki Gunvalson might be getting doubly shafted by ex Brooks Ayers. In addition to breaking up with her just months after her mom died, he is reportedly making money from her status as part of the Real Housewives of Orange County cast.

RadarOnline says that since Ayers broke things off with Vicki Gunvalson, he's been cashing in on secret interviews.

It was just last month--about a month after he and Vicki Gunvalson broke up--that Brooks Ayers traveled to New York to film a secret interview with Andy Cohen about his cancer scandal. Bravo foot the bill--even though Brooks was never an official cast member. He was only on the show because of his connection with Vicki Gunvalson.

“Not only did they fly him first class to New York and put him up in a very nice hotel, but they also paid him $10,000!” an source tells the publication. “The whole thing lasted about four hours.”

“Bravo had wanted Brooks to come to the reunion taping, but he refused. There was no way he was going to go into that hornets’ nest," the source adds.

Vicki Gunvalson was set to appear at a taping on Friday for a Real Housewives of Orange County reunion show.

She “has no idea what she is walking into because Andy and Brooks have refused to tell her what was discussed,” the source says.

“Vicki just feels so betrayed that Brooks chose a payday over her, and is refusing to tell her anything about the interview. She stood up for him, and doesn’t want to look like a fool to her fans.”

Is this the ultimate betrayal of Vicki Gunvalson at the hands of Brooks Ayers?

Will she have the last laugh? Tamra Judge is, after all, still trying to prove that he doesn't really have cancer.

Might Vicki Gunvalson eventually see Brooks take a mighty fall?
