Brooks talks about the motivations for the bitches on the show doubting his illness. “It creates drama and relevance for them to be able to challenge somebody else’s illness. I simply wanted to share with people that you can survive a relationship in the public eye and be there to nurture each other — Vicki through the loss of her mom, me battling cancer for a third time — and it turned into a circus.”
I don’t really see how any relationship could withstand all of that.
It seems that Brooks has sent Meghan a cease and desist that she mocked online. “Meghan has scoffed that ‘Oh my God, Brooks is threatening to sue me.’ But what people don’t know is I have sent her a formal letter from my attorney…demanding certain things, and I do have significant grounds if she doesn’t change her ways and she’s got an opportunity to do that. [This is] defamation. I’m hitting back. She has a chance to make it right and we’ll see if she does or not.”
Don’t hold your breath, Brooks. Although, she hasn’t defamed you on Twitter since the reunion.
Ayers explained to Us he’s stopped chemotherapy and has since opted to go a different route to fight his Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. “I decided I would go and try to attack my body in a natural way with not just Resveratrol, a whole host of other things as well, and then I would keep it in check and monitor it just like I normally would do. And what would I have to lose? At that point when I made that decision, after my third round of chemo, four months of treatment and eating healthy and diet and doing the infrared sauna and all the other things that I was doing…my numbers had not gotten better. It may be against my oncologist’s advice because he’s Western medicine, but this is my body and it’s a practice of medicine, and I did my own research, lengthy research, much more than Meghan could have ever done or does.[She] doesn’t really care about me sincerely, she cares about being relevant on the show. And that saddens me, and that’s immaturity on her part. But my numbers have improved and my inflammations are gone. I’m not out of the woods, it doesn’t mean my cancer is gone, but I’m heading in the right direction.”
I think everyone has to do what is best for them. After three bouts with the same cancer, clearly chemo was not having any lasting result. Why does anyone care what treatment plan he chooses?
Brooks hardly speaks to Vicki these days. He says, “I’ve talked to her once in the last couple of weeks. We’ve emailed and texted on occasion. Today [at the reunion] will be the last time Vicki has got to deal with it in front of the ladies. They’ll move on to next season, and they can pick on somebody else, and manufacture some drama. I care for her, I wish her well, it just didn’t work out [for] us.”
Ah well, you win some you lose some I guess.
