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
Heather Dubrow’s first show! She introduces herself and says her guests will be Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador from The Real Housewives of Orange County and promises “We will find out once and for all if Brooks has cancer and whether or not the girls have banded together to ice Vicki out next season.”
She then introduces her assistant, Natalie, who handles everything in Heather and Terry Dubrow’s World: Botched, New Botched, this podcast, skincare line, this podcast, their new book, and feeds the leeches when there are no customers. I might have added the last part.
Show will be about health, wellness, beauty, gossip, travel –she’s finally answering all our questions about packing!! Tweet or Instagram at #dearheather
Tamra and Shannon are in traffic and since it’s live she has to fill time by talking about herself via The Autobiography of Heather Dubrow. Super snoozers about her “acting career” which included her time acting on Divorce Court. (Which *mind blown* I cannot believe that it’s not real! Who are all those people divorcing over $345?? Apparently, actors.) Heather couldn’t get an acting job, so she’s pretending how she was an in-demand singer (at Disneyland), a wedding singer, and in the house band for…. The Nanny for 4 years. So, she was on the set of the Nanny everyday and instead of getting a job acting, she is trying to hype up her singing and “stand-up comedy career.” Continue reading
Last night Brooks was interviewer by E! about his cancer scandal. If you missed that start HERE.
Tonight in part two, the interviewer brought up the Girth Brooks thing. She said that Brianna suggested that he showed her is penis. Brooks cleared that up quickly saying what she said was that he wanted to show her his penis. None of that ever happened. Brooks says that one night while he was out with Ryan and some guys (BTW, I don’t think that meeting was televised. And Ryan armed with a recording device, why was Ryan even hanging out with Brooks if he had done all of these things to Brianna?) when a Garth Brooks song was played and he joked to the group of men only that in college his nickname was Girth Brooks. Apparently, Ryan related that back to his wife.
Brooks also says that he heard Brianna on speakerphone with Vicki say that she will say or do anything to the media, the press, to your friends, to get that man away from her mother.
On to Brooks documentation. He showed E! invoices from treatment he received at City of Hope. The interviewer is looking at the documentation and asks Brooks to stage for the record again, exactly what his diagnosis is. He says Stage 3 Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.
