Vicki Gunvalson and Cancer Stricken Boyfriend Brooks Ayers Have Broken Up
Vicki Gunvalson, the one original cast member of “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” has suffered a lot this season with the passing of her mom. Now, she and boyfriend Brooks Ayers have revealed that they are no longer together. The couple have been together since season seven, shortly after Gunvalson parted ways with husband Donn Gunvalson. It has been a super rocky road for the couple as daughter Briana Culberson and RHOC co-star Tamra Judge felt that Brooks was an opportunist. It was shown on the show that Ayers drove Vicki’s cars, lived in her properties and let Vicki pay for a new set of teeth. Then, this season, the couple decided to move in together but Ayers was also battling cancer. This was a diagnosis that many of the housewives and Briana questioned the validity of.
Vicki’s relationship with Brooks caused a wedge with family and friends and it took a while for them to get on track. They have released a statement to US Magazine regarding the unexpected split: “After much prayer, thought, counseling, and consideration, we have decided to end our four year relationship. We both wish nothing but a great future for each other. We have come to realize that one can indeed love someone in their heart, but that the time may come for their lives to take separate paths. Though the remaining episodes of Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Orange County will show us as a couple, the filming took place in January 2015 through May 2015.
“There will be no further statements or interviews regarding our relationship as we choose to move on with our lives. Though we choose to live our lives in the public eye, we thank you for your understanding and ask privacy during this difficult time.” We wish them both the best during this difficult time and we hope that they both find happiness whether together or apart. I am interested in hearing what Briana has to say but she will probably respect her mother’s wishes and stay silent.
