Shannon Beador is NOT happy with Vicki’s interview on WWHL. She feels like Vicki is playing the victim card while knowing all along what was going on.
Shannon is on Facebook saying she has all the texts Vicki sent her starting on September 9th. Shannon brings up that on the reunion she said she sat at City of Hope for four hours, yet she told Mario Lopez she picked him up from City of Hope. None of her stories match up. Her WWHL story about walking around outside City of Hope for half an hour and then leaving with no checking out is a new story
Shannon says that we can say she is bitter and hate her all she wants. But she can’t just be quiet about this. Shannon says that Vicki sent everyone an email last week about the guy named Tony who supposedly took Brooks to chemo while Vicki was at Disneyland with Brianna and her kids. Shannon says if her man was having chemo, she would be there and not at Disneyland. There was an email from Tony that said that he stopped over to bring Brooks soup and hang out with him. He mentioned nothing about taking Brooks to chemo. Continue reading
Oh hey! Did y’all know that Brooks Ayers faked cancer on Real Housewives of Orange County? Because we’ve hardly talked about it at all here. Heavy sigh. And it appears we are about to talk about it again. Tonight we are going to hear Vicki Gunvalson try to explain her way out of this. I am probably Vicki’s best advocate through all of this and I am going to try to give her every benefit of the doubt, but based on some snippets of this show I’ve seen where she claims that make Brooks was drinking Visine or something to make himself sick, I’m confessing up front, I am going to have a hard time supporting her in this.
Andy starts with the statement put out on November 10th by City of Hope stating they had never treated Brooks. Okay Vicki is lying. She now says that Brooks called her from City of Hope and said he should be done in about an hour. When she got to the hospital she called him to ask where to go within the building. Wouldn’t you find this out in the initial phone call? Something like, “I’m on the third floor as the nurse to take you back, or wait in the waiting room?” You know how when a guy has been up to no good and give a very detailed accounting of their whereabouts over a period of several hours? Yeah. It’s just like that. “I turned left down the hall and he was sitting in the waiting room.” Um, why is he in a waiting room? I am not even going to type her long convoluted story. It’s clear to me she is lying. It is a much different story than what she said on the reunion, which was I sat in the waiting room for four hours while he had chemo. We can basically turn this off now. She’s in on it up to her eyeballs.
Vicki has come armed with a folder of documents. One is a text or email from Brooks saying that just because he doesn’t trust her with his medical records doesn’t make it right to accuse me of not having cancer. Huh? When would that conversation have happened? She was defending him up until a few weeks ago. Continue reading
I’m only recapping this because the page views from this nonsense have allowed me to take a bit of time away from the laptop the past few days. I have multiple personal crises going on at once that needed my attention. Not major, just annoyances. So here is hoping this post will continue to bring the views. I am pissed that Andy has to run this nonsense on #TGIT ! I haven’t even seen Grey’s yet. So don’t spoil me on anything Shondaland. Don’t even remind me I am missing it for this crap.
We start with Andy letting us know that City of Hope claims they never treated Brooks and that Brooks says that he fabricated records “in hopes of putting doubts about my cancer to rest.” Andy is reading this with his constipated expression for those of you relying solely on this recap for your information. Andy says that Brooks still claims he has cancer.
Brooks starts by saying that their breakup was a mutual decision. Brooks says that Briana was a huge problem for their relationship mostly because he and Vicki met while she was still married to Donn.
Brooks gives the news that his lesions/tumors are gone because of a combination of chemo and lots of antioxidant therapy and vitamin C IV therapy. Continue reading
Because we just can’t get enough about this story. I know this because I got a billion links to Brooks statement admitting he lied to E! News. So, let’s watch this one more time.
But first, here is his apology:
“Words cannot express the deep regret that I have in fabricating documents to ‘prove’ to the world that I, in fact, have cancer. What I did was wrong and inexcusable. I acted alone, without Vicki ‘s knowledge, to produce documents for a reality TV show in hopes of putting doubts about my cancer to rest. I never intended to disclose my actual medical records or details about my private and personal medical history, thus the rationalization of presenting documents that weren’t true simply for a ‘storyline’ for the show.”
“From this day forward, my own personal journey with this disease will remain private as I initially intended over a year ago. My sincerest apologies to my family, friends, loved ones, and those who are battling this horrid disease for any additional pain and/or stress that I have caused. As Rick Pitino once said, ‘Mistakes can be good. They are fertilizer. Everything I’ve learned about coaching [life], I’ve learned from making mistakes.’ I made a mistake yet I have learned a huge lesson as well.” Continue reading
This may look like a communal baptism to wash the sins away. But it’s just Brooks with VIcki and her family in Miami on August 17, 2015 .
So I finally was convinced that Brooks faked cancer last week after giving him the benefit of the doubt all season (because who does that on a national reality show?) which resulted in a ton of people being mad at ME for believing him. (I feel your pain, Vicki). I thought the subject had been put to rest until E! News tweeted me tonight insisting I watch the show tonight and after receiving a million emails about how Brooks was never treated by City of Hope. E! News must be experiencing diminished returns on this subject if they are literally tweeting anyone who has mentioned the topic on twitter in the past week, but it seems, I’m going to watch this shit one more time. You know, in case it is not crystal clear at this point. In reality, there were still quite a few holdouts in comments here. And I can’t fault them for having a hard time believing someone would do this. I mean how does this help his life in any way? Frankly, my biggest red flag was when he said he was serious with a new woman who he had shown all of his medical records to. That seemed like bullshit right away. I can’t imagine anyone with a television who would date Brooks Ayers at this point.
Sidenote: The lead story is an exclusive interview with Khloe Kardashian. All that money and she doesn’t have a better makeup artist than this? She looks HORRIBLE. She should have washed her fact and gone natural. Under all of that glop is a pretty young woman.
They begin with a montage of Brooks saying that his oncologist is at City of Hope. He had presented a fake documents from City of Hope here. And that was when the evidence was undisputable for me. Vicki still seemed to “believe” Brooks in her most recent tweets. I have not looked to see how she is handling this latest wave of information. Continue reading
After months of uncertainty, it has finally been proven to my satisfaction that Brooks faked cancer. And we have E! News to thank for it. Amusingly, they are a part of NBC Universal and have managed to make Andy’s complete interview with Brooks on November 12th, irrelevant. And I must say, Brooks did not have his lies down with Andy like he did with E! News. If you look at Brooks hour long interview with E! he is quite believable and has an answer for everything. His main tell there was saying, “Thank you for asking” after the interviewer would ask him a hard question.
If Brooks had not falsified documents to bring in to E! he might have been able to leave things with people giving him the benefit of the doubt. Lord knows we here at TamaraTattles.com did everything we could to give him the benefit of the doubt. The very idea of faking cancer on a TV show where there is so much scrutiny is absurd to me. What is there to gain? Now he is facing the disgrace of a nation! Continue reading
