Nothing could be further from the truth in reality, yet this alone makes for great TV and for controversy. At the time, he apologized and said he faked the documents because he did not want to disclose his real medical records. Ayers maintains he was diagnosed with stage 3 non-Hodgkin lymphoma in Ayers says when he received a cancer diagnosis in , he attempted to keep it a secret. He told Gunvalson but asked her not to share the news publicly. The couple broke up in July as season 10 aired.
Ayers would go on to do a number of interviews, including a lengthy sit-down with E! News , in which he produced cancer documents the outlet later proved were fake. I am not now, nor have I ever been involved in covering for Brooks. I continue to wish him nothing but the best and hope that we can both now move past this difficult chapter in our lives. Once and for all, I would like to address several issues concerning my life that keep circulating in the media that I would like to clarify and get out.
I completely understand that people may not believe what I am saying to be true, yet it will not keep me from telling my side of the story along with my rationale as to why I did what I did as it relates to my health and my private life.
Since I began dating Vicki in the Fall of , I was the subject of much ridicule and hate. No one is perfect. I have made my share of mistakes which I regret. I pride myself in apologizing when I am wrong or have wronged others either intentionally or unintentionally. Through the first five years of dating Vicki, I was coined as a con man, low life, gold digger, dead beat, etc. Vicki is a lot of things, but stupid?
She is known for being a driven workaholic who demands perfection. One of Vicki s famous quotes is: The same is true about me. What one never saw was my drive professionally to continue to provide for my kids and advance my career. When it comes to a TV show, drama sells and every story needs a villain and I was the villain.
Now, onto the reason why I am writing this. Prior to filming Season 10 which began in December , I was given the unfortunate news of my cancer diagnosis. 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.
Looking back, it was quite ridiculous actually. Vicki and I broke up in July while Season 10 was still airing. I have since apologized in a statement that showing fake documents was absolutely wrong, that Vicki did not have anything to do with it and hindsight I should have never showed anything at all. In closing, I would like to address a couple of additional issues. Who even would question anyone dealing with this disease? Finally, I would respectfully ask that one would recognize that I am no longer on the show as I have moved on with my life in the private world and am requesting to leave me out of future discussions or conversations.
Vicki was my partner for five years and I believe the show was the demise of our relationship. She is a woman of integrity and compassion, and would never lie about something so serious as this. You May Like Get your People daily dose Subscribe to the daily newsletter for the latest celebrity news.
