EXCLUSIVE: Lizzie Rovsek Dishes on Brooks Ayers’ Cancer and Meghan Edmonds Investigation “It’s Borderline Stalkerish”

Posted on Oct 7 2015 - 7:35am by Editor

Lizzie Rovesek_RHOC

The presence of Lizzie Rovesek has been a breath of fresh air on The Real Housewives of Orange County. The question over Brooks Ayers’ battle with cancer has remained paramount, with most of the endless arguments coming from Meghan King Edmonds. 

All About the Tea caught up with Lizzie Rovesek recently, and she exclusively dished about #CancerGate, Meghan’s controversial investigative skills, and her friendships on the show. Lizzie spills her take on the never-ending cancer storyline, that has taken over the show. 

“It’s difficult for me, because Vicki is my friend (as are the other women on the show), and I have a hard time seeing them diving so deeply into Brooks’ cancer.  Brooks’ is not even a housewife. Trying so hard to condemn Vicki and Brooks for faking cancer has become the biggest theme of the entire season. I think some of the women have gone too far with it. You can believe it or not. Ultimately, if they are faking cancer, that’s something they’ll have to deal with themselves — with God — that’s the final judgement. It’s gone way too far, and it’s overstepping privacy boundaries.”

As viewers witnessed on RHOCMeghan has been on a pursuit of “justice” in order to discredit Brooks’ assertion that he’s suffering with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Meghan has claimed exposing Brooks’ truth as her mission, even going as far as seeking out his doctors, and an ex-girlfriend. Meghan’s main source of skepticism surrounds Brooks’ decision to stop chemotherapy, and seek alternative treatments for his cancer. Lizzie shares her thoughts,

“I like Meghan, but seeing her call all these doctors and call the ex-girlfriend — I just don’t get it — I don’t do that kind of stuff. I feel it’s a little borderline stalkerish. She doesn’t know Brooks, and she hardly knows Vicki. Vicki has been friends with Heather, Tamra and Shannon for a long time, and they are not the ones taking these actions. They obviously have their opinions, but they are not going to these lengths. I think it’s very strange. I feel maybe there is more that we don’t know about Meghan, and maybe that’s why she’s going to these lengths to try to condemn someone.”

Meghan seems to be going after Brooks (and Vicki) as an odd sort of revenge, after Vicki offered Meghan parenting advice.  What were your observations, as you navigated through all of the chatter? 

“We’re on a reality show, and if you bring up a topic, she obviously wanted everyone to weigh in on it. She obviously wanted to be the center of attention at that moment, and have everyone talk about her and her step-parenting; so everybody did. But you don’t see Vicki stalking her, trying to catch her doing something bad and continually bashing her. Meghan can have her two cents about it, but at this point, it’s time to let it go! Get a hobby or spend some time with her children.”

Meghan has ricocheted between supposed emotional concern for Brooks, and maligning him behind his back.  I asked Lizzie what she thought was going on, and what her thoughts were on Meghan’s contradictory motives. 

“Meghan came in like she was VERY concerned for Brooks, but meanwhile you see her telling her husband that Vicki is a con-artist, and she’s going to expose it to the world. So which is it? Are you really concerned for Brooks, or committed to making Vicki look like a con-artist? You’ve got to pick one side, and if you’re trying to do both, it doesn’t sit well.”

I wondered how Lizzie planned to approach a reunion that is sure to be explosive. She explains,

“I’m not going to be at the reunion. I definitely have my opinions about stuff that happens this season with Vicki and Brooks but I really wasn’t around it as much; so you don’t get to see my opinions as much on the show. I’m still close friends with Vicki and Shannon, and I wish them all luck. I hope that Vicki is strong, because I feel like she’s in the hot seat this year.”

Shannon and Vicki used to be close, but with Shannon tying herself to the anti-Brooks campaign, their friendship appears to be battered.How does Lizzie, as a mutual friend, see the struggling friendship?

“Shannon is my closest friend in the entire cast, and I think she feels that Tamra has changed her life. Shannon feels that Vicki has not been truthful to her, and she’s entitled to her opinions. I hope she’s making the right decision. Shannon is a good person, and she’s very loyal. I hope her loyalty is received well. I wish that she and Vicki could mend their friendship — I hate to see them apart —  it’s sad. They were like yin and yang together.” 

Lizzie somehow managed to find her way through a season where distinct teams were formed, and emerge a winner. She provided a mercifully level-headed presence, while navigating a mind-boggling season. We wave goodbye to the OC this Monday. Lizzie will be one of the few women that I will miss! Thanks Lizzie!

    Too bad Lizzie wasn’t at the reunion. I feel like Vicki needed at least one ally. Even if that ally was just like “maybe Brooks is lying but so what. Mind your own business”

    • Here here! Lizzie sounds so level headed and nailed Meghan’s childish butt.

      • MidwestMiddie

        Lizzie sounds like someone who doesn’t want to lose her 1/2 orange.
        : )

        • Emmanuelle

          Why would you defend MKE? I don’t enjoy anyone on this show, but why is she so important to you? Give one logical reason for defending MKE. And please don’t say “Oh, it’s because she’s standing up against Vicki” Because if that’s it, then i can go and say “so what?” She is making herself a bigger fool by beating the cancer dead, but it’s through getting revenge. She doesn’t care about cancer or anything of the sort, let’s see her become an oncologist. That whole justice nonsense is crap, just like the words that MKE keeps spewing.

          • MidwestMiddie

            You and I do agree on one thing – not enjoying anyone on this show.
            I have watched every season although this one will likely be the last one. Meghan is important, not to me, but to the show. She was the only woman who took on the challenge of answering the lingering questions everyone has had regarding Brooks. EVERYONE
            has wondered if Brooks was lying about his illness. I personally believe Brooks and Vicki were lying. BOTH ARE GUILTY!
            Cancer is a battle, a brutal one. I am horrified and angry that anyone would use that illness as a scam for any reason.
            Recently a person admitted that he was not in the Towers in NYC on 911 and has been lying about it for years. IMO – that’s exactly what Brooks is doing if he is lying. Vicki, too. You don’t lie about something so serious that has and is inflicting pain on others.
            I believe Meghan came on the show and was shocked to meet nasty Vicki. Meghan probably assumed she was going to meet someone who understood the ups, downs and heartaches of cancer on a family and loved one. While Meghan has empathy towards anyone with cancer when Vicki got personal and attacked Meghan’s loved ones,
            she didn’t run away – she fought back. When Vicki’s and Brooks words and actions about this returning cancer didn’t make any sense at all, she believed lies were being told. Lies about his cancer. The other women on the show agree with Meghan.
            Meghan has done one unforgivable thing – lied about cancer on the phone. It was wrong. She has admitted to it and apologized.
            Meghan is not graceful or appealing in her way with words but
            I think her message is Spot On.
            BTW – I am not the only one who supports Meghan. I am
            one of the few here at AATT but across the internet – she is praised for putting a stop to this cancer sham.
            My Guess – There was a single person at the Reunion who
            believed Vicki or Brooks.

          • Emmanuelle

            That’s fine, i’m not saying people need to be on board with Vicki. In all honesty, i think that Vicki is my favorite from this show. I still don’t like her enough for some of her behavior in the past, but i do think that Vicki always gets the short end of a stick every time. And, in all honesty again, how is MKE only mistake comes down to lying about the cancer? I know that Vicki was rude to her about not having a job/getting divorced/being a stepmom, but all Meghan had to was let Vicki destroy her own credibility! Isn’t that easy? Guess not. The reason i wonder why there’s people who like Meghan is… Do they think stalking Brooks former exes and doing so much extensive research on this crook makes Meghan any better? I mean, Brooks didn’t do anything to Meghan. If Brooks went after Meghan and people close to her, then that’s a different situation. I just think that Meghan should should stick with her issues with Vicki. But, NO, let’s go after Brooks for the fourth season in a row! All of the ladies were so embarrassing to watch, at least Heather focused on her stupid product. Shannon lost my respect so fast into this season — she didn’t defend Vicki, unlike what Vicki did for her. Shannon shouldn’t be mad at Vicki. Now this idiot thinks that TJ and HD are her friends, haha… Last but not least, Tamra Judge. I enjoyed her more this season, but she is so ridiculous as well. She says “i want to support Vicki” but then goes after her. She was the one who started this shit with the whole psychic.

    • MidwestMiddie

      I wish Lizzie was coming to the Reunion too. If she came on and said,
      “Maybe Brooks is lying but so what?’ – I’d probably change my opinion of her.
      If Brooks is lying about his cancer returning then, imo, that is a BIG DEAL!!!
      And if it is found out that he lied, then Vicki knew all about the lies and was
      a part of it. Also, a BIG DEAL! ……imo.

      • undergroundrailroadtrain

        Like Lizzie said those are two different things, Brooks lying and Vicki being in on the lie. I think Brooks lying is not a big deal because it doesn’t concern them. He is not swindling them out of money, time and energy. Now if Vicki is in on it and they are running some type of cancer scam for money then bring forth a criminal or civil complaint and let the proper authority handle it from there

        • MidwestMiddie

          We disagree. Brooks lying about his cancer hurts viewers of the show.
          Bravo has so little ntegrity that it is foolish to risk whatever the
          network has left on a known con man and someone who has lied
          before about having cancer.
          Vicki’s making money from her juice promotion but that isn’t a crime.
          She simply wanted Brooks living with her and lied to make it happen.
          BTW – her one comment about the juices is foolish and misleading.
          Paraphrasing – Be Your Own Doctor and Live Disease Free by drinking these juices. Right!!

    • MidwestMiddie

      So is Brooks and Vicki like the comedian who lied about being at the WTC on 911?
      Not a big deal- so what? I disagree. You don’t lie about having cancer and
      expect people to not be disgusted with you just like you don’t lie about being a survivor of 911. You don’t have to be accused of trying to profit monetarily to be condemned for your words and actions.

      • undergroundrailroadtrain

        Yes what he and Brooks did is disgusting. No argument about that. But do you know how often my friends and I talk about them? Not at all because they do not directly affect us. That comedian got away with the lies for years before he got his comeuppance. Eventually Brooks will get his. Now Brianna bringing it up makes sense. This has to do with her mother and is directly affecting her family. Meghan on the other hand is too invested in this. She said her piece, multiple times, now move on. Her and Vicki are not even friends.

        • MidwestMiddie

          If Vicki and Brooks didn’t want his cancer to be discussed, he should not have been on this Season. Period!
          I get why Meghan was invested in this matter. Her aunt(s)? and grandmother had breast cancer and died from it. At the beginning of the season, she told about how she had seen the painfulness of the treatments and the financial hardships cancer brought to them. Her mother chose to have a radical /double mastectomy surgery to hopefully prevent the same pain for herself and her family. Meghan was, also, seeing the pain of LeAnn’s cancer. Brianna isn’t the only one impacted because some VIEWERS watching this phony storyline have cancer or have loved ones who do.
          This is or should be Brooks and Vicki’s comeuppance. Don’t worry
          Bravo will protect Icky.

          Vicki was not duped by Brooks. She is an intelligent person or at least she says she is. Remember how she research Brianna’s cancer?
          Vicki talked to doctors and ready every thing shown on the internet.
          Now she wants us to believe she was duped? She simply trusted
          her con man lover? Never read up on his cancer or followed up
          on his treatments? BS —- She and Brooks lied, probably because they wanted to live together and not get any grief from anyone.
          Their single lie grew into many lies and they’ve yet to tell the truth
          They are disgusting.

  • WaWaWaWHAT!

    They need to ditch Meghan and bring Lizzie back full time…not every wife needs to be a drama creating nosey bitch like the rest…

  • Jennymckitty

    Lizzie chose the right year to step down to a friend role. None of the other women are going to come out of this looking good..regardless of if they are correct.
    I agree with Lizzie…Meghan has definitely gone too far. This issue is tired and beat to death. Ive said before that I am on the fence about Brooks’ diagnosis. I can certainly understand why others question him. I feel that much of this is producer driven and a bit of mob mentality. If Brooks wants to claim he has cancer if he doesn’t, is he really hurting anyone? It is the end game that upsets me. Had he gone through the season and never been questioned, how would this story had played out? Would he have had a miracle cure from these new age treatments? Would he and Vicki profit financially while offering false hope to desperate people trying to win their battle against cancer? We really won’t know how this could have played out.
    Immediately following the reunion, Vicki and a group of friends checked into Club Detox. Vicki has promoted the facility, given a testimonial, and is involved in their online detox program. Is she an investor? Paid for promotion? These are the questions I have now.

    • MidwestMiddie

      All of this upsets me including the end game. I think lies have huge ramifications
      and liars don’t deserve any graceful exits from their lies. If they have any integrity at all
      they should tell the truth, explain themselves and ask for forgiveness. There are many posters here at AATT who have cancer, are in remission or have loved ones suffering from cancer and treatments. Brook’s playing about having cancer is a real slap
      at everyone. And if he is lying – Vicki knew.

      • Chloe

        You are missing the point. It was none of Meghan’s business. Let God deal with it IF he’s lying. There is no justification for Meghan’s behavior besides revenge. And her actions has costed her, her marriage.

        • MidwestMiddie

          My guess – her marriage is fine. Yes, it was Meghan’s business since
          Brooks was on the show and his cancer was a topic. If he didn’t want people asking him questions then he shouldn’t have signed-on for Season 7. He and Vicki have gotten caught in their lies. Lies they told
          just so they could live together without others questioning their arrangement. How stupid and childish to think lying about cancer was an okay thing to do! Then again, neither one of them have a pound of integrity.

          • Chloe

            Brooks is not a cast member and didn’t sign on to have his illness exploited and to be trashed by a juvenile punk. How stupid of Meghan to ruin her marriage over a reality show. She’s not the brightest bulb. Her husband talks to her like an overbearing child.

          • MidwestMiddie

            We’ll have to agree to disagree. The first episode Brooks cancer was discussed and Meghan had no part in it. Since he was on the show, it was going to be a storyline, his storyline. He should have moved back to Mississippi.

          • Chloe

            Meghan is the one making a mockery of cancer under the guise of pursing justice.

          • MidwestMiddie

            It’s like playing tennis.
            : )
            Have a good one, Chloe.

          • MidwestMiddie

            And I compare Vicki and Brooks to the comedian who lied
            about being at the WTC on 911. You don’t lie about serious
            matters which have and are inflicting pain on others. IF you do and get caught then you deserve to be scorned by others.

          • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

            ITA Midwest! He could have stayed off the show and vetoed Vicki from speaking about it at all.

        • undergroundrailroadtrain

          Preach!

      • aemish

        #GO MIDDIE!

    • aemish

      Awesome questions. I loathe Meghan and her insane tactics, but if what you are saying is true I loathe Vicki even more.

      • Jennymckitty

        I’ve been taking it for a few years as well.

        • Livie1

          Me three!!

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      Jenny – it’s the end game that concerns me too. Vicki and Brooks clearly had an agenda with the Club Detox promotion. Vicki is obviously endorsing it and her name, face and testimonial is on their website etc. You can be sure that she is not doing that for free. It’s pretty sickening. I think she is trying to change tack and promote it more for weight-loss and general health now to distance herself from the cancer scam.

      • Jennymckitty

        Dr. German Zermeno (Brooks’ oxigen blood Dr) also has a testimonial on the site and says that her refers patients there. There are rumors that he and Vicki are investors but I can’t prove it.

        • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

          Interesting!! That would make a lot of sense seeing as Lenka or whatever her name is was there. Vicki is just not the type to do anything for nothing.

          • Jennymckitty

            Lenka is the CEO of the place. I looked and the online articles of incorporation for the club but they don’t list the board of directors. I’ve seen press released with Vicki and Club Detox from December last year…before they started filming. For what ever reason, I believe she intended all along to promote these people on the show. It is giving me a bad feeling about the entire story.

          • MidwestMiddie

            Excellent sleuthing, Jenny!!!!
            Kudos!

          • Jennymckitty

            I was wearing my FBI hat just so you know how super serious I was.

          • MidwestMiddie

            : )

          • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

            Good job Jenny 🙂 there is very little corporate information on Club Detox! Without doubt Vicki intended to promote this using Brooks – here’s a quote from Lenka on Vicki’s PR Clay Edward’s website “We are thrilled to be able to offer our expertise worldwide with the collaboration of international reality TV star, Vicki Gunvalson.” followed by a quote from Vicki: “I am thrilled to be a part of the exciting movement. Club Detox has been an amazing experience for Brooks and me on his journey to rid cancer from his body”. And guess who else features on ClubDetox website endorsing them? LIZZIE!!!!

          • Jennymckitty

            I saw Lizzie’s blurb. Guess that’s why Vicki was suddenly nice to her.
            That website is odd. Nothing but testimonials and online registration. Generally, businesses like this will list there programs and wax & wane poetically about their practioners. No one other than Lenka is even mentioned. That is so very strange to me.

          • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

            It’s very odd Jenny. No corporate info at all and just nonsense like “Lenka’s body was literally falling apart and she eventually found herself with borderline cancer?”. Seriously, what on earth is borderline cancer?!!!! Perhaps this is what Brooks has too. Utter nonsense.

  • Chloe

    Great interview Tea. Lizzie is spot on about Meghan and the whole situation. Too bad she won’t be at the reunion to support Vicki.

  • Livie1

    A question, what does Lizzy mean saying that her good friend Shannon feels Tamera has changed her life? Tamera has changed Shannon’s life? Or Tamera has changed Tamera’s life? Not clear on what Lizzie meant. Thanks for any clarification 🙂

    • MidwestMiddie

      That confused me too………

      • Livie1

        Thanks for confirming my confusion MM!! Maybe someone can clear this up for us 🙂

  • Livie1

    They’d all be nuts at this point to take anything even close to Meghan’s side. She’s a typhoid Mary at present on the show. Expect tears and leaving the set to occur during “reunion” show…that’s my prediction.

    • MidwestMiddie

      Hey, Livie
      You and I would be sitting on opposite sofas. LOL
      : )
      While Meghan overstepped, she has admitted it and apologized. My bet – there isn’t one person from the show, who believes Brooks and Vicki.

      • Livie1

        Oh see, I don’t watch the show since I have a spouse battling real cancer so it’s just an emotional hot button for me. I had no idea Megs apologized for overstepping. I just think from what I read on the posts here that Meghan has alienated herself for whatever reason to all the others in the cast. So that’s what I mean by her now being a Typhoid Mary.

        Oh MM, I will sit with you on the same couch!! Just as long as Andy isn’t there with us!!! 🙂

        • MidwestMiddie

          No Andy!!! — Yay!

          Meghan has her fans but not many here. lol I think she went too far but I applaud her for calling out Brooks and Vicki on their lies.
          It is a Hot Button Issue. Bravo is responsible for allowing this
          horrible storyline. Right now, every cast member would be willing to sit with Meghan but not Icky Vicki. : )

          • Livie1

            Yeah, I really shouldn’t even comment since I don’t even watch the show 🙁 And those threads always compelled me to say (again) that my husband is battling real cancer. Honestly I have to stop doing that. For everyone’s sake, especially mine.

            Wow, I just never thought that my innocent desire for some mindless entertainment to break from the reality of life would instead make me all stressed out and anxious watching, even reading about it!! Now at this point my own fault tho and I take ownership. I just like reading what you all have to say and then I get roped in. Yes, I am weak!! 🙂 Promising to self right now to do better 😉

          • MidwestMiddie

            Several posters have said they don’t watch the shows but do read the blogs and posts here at AATT.
            Go ahead and comment. According to the majority I’m in the wrong
            on this one but I’m comfortable with my decision.
            Soon I’ll be like you …..out of the loop when it comes to the RHNJ
            and these awful Giudice Shows. I will not watch those shows but
            I’ll be here to gossip and chatter. Boy do I hope the Giudice shows
            fail. The first one will probably be a ratings winner but after that
            I doubt it.

          • Chloe

            Difference of opinion is good.

          • MidwestMiddie

            Without Differing Opinions- Dinner Table Discussions would become mundane.
            : )

  • E P

    This immature, idiotic, moronic, girlymanchild called MEghan SUUUUUUUUCKS! That’s all I got. Can’t be bothered with her anymore.

  • beckywebb

    Lizzie, I wonder how you feel about Vicki wanting Gretchen back on. This is obviously a bid for getting your orange back.

    • Chloe

      Huh?

      • beckywebb

        On periscope she said Gretchen has a good heart and she wouldn’t mind her coming back on. Lizzie has been on Vicki’s side and against Meghan from the first.

        • Chloe

          I’m confused. Your comment implies Vicki is somehow betraying Lizzie with wanting Gretchen back. Can you clarify?

          • beckywebb

            Yes, I think that is the case. I’m not sure Lizzie wants back full time though, And I know I wouldn’t want her cause she lives up Vicki butt this season.

          • Chloe

            Gretchen and Lizzie have no beef from what I know so how is that a betrayal? Besides there’s enough oranges to go around for everyone.

  • Perturbed

    Love Lizzie – she and Christian are such a cute couple! Would prefer them back over the alien pair of Meghan & Jim any day. Since Meghan considers herself such an expert on medical research, I wonder why she hasn’t researched her OWN very obvious affliction: “elongated neck/trunk syndrome” or whatever it’s called?

    • Chloe

      Love this post. You nailed the loose caboose that is Meghan. Can I add her other ailments to the list of things she should research…1) grown woman with a child’s brain and 2) woman stuck in a man’s body.

    • MidwestMiddie

      Meghan’s “elongated neck” is God’s creation. If you’ve got a problem with it then talk to Her. BTW – You may as well complain about your afflictions too. Why not?
      You’ll have her ear. : )

  • Darris

    Lizzie gave a PC answer and I don’t blame her for that. However if Brooks is making this whole thing up IT IS A BIG DEAL and the ladies who questioned it won’t look bad to me since they would be right. The thing is…chances are the FULL details will never come out.

    • Chloe

      It’s no one’s business. Lizzie gave very specific non pc responses.

      • Darris

        Personally for me if I were Shannon, Brianna or whatever her name is or Tamra it would bother me if my good friend/my mother’s significant other faked cancer. Now would I take the road that Meghan took to call around etc or Tamra’s when she asked a psychic about it…no because I’m not crazy or on a reality tv show. However when it came out that this person was faking their illness…I would be pissed and it would be my business because that’s low down and dirty and unneeded stress you’re putting on a family member/friend of mine during a period when she already was dealing with the loss of her mother.
        Lizzie overall tone to me was PC to me personally.

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    Shannon, Tamra and Heather aren’t going to those lengths to expose Brooks and Vicki because they aren’t dealing with a family member dying from cancer like Meghan is. I have said before I don’t particularly agree with how Meghan has handled things BUT she is watching these two fools using cancer to promote Club Detox on a very big Bravo platform. I don’t think I could sit back and say nothing either. If all the housewives took Lizzie’s stance then Brooks and Vicki would have thousands duped in to thinking Club Detox was the miracle they needed.

  • SDC

    OT but did anyone read the article about Shannon admitting to having her husband arrested for domestic violence a couple of years into their marriage? I believe the interview was with Us Weekly and she said that she and David were having a verbal argument and she wanted the argument to end so she called the police to have him arrested for domestic violence. That is f*cking crazy! David didn’t know from then to divorce her crazy ass?! If my partner ever had me arrested for something I didn’t do, I’d leave them the minute the cops let me go. On the other hand, if he really didn’t do it, I find it odd that police would arrest somebody over a verbal argument. Keep talking Shannon, you’re just setting yourself up to be exposed for the crazy person you are next season.

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    Did anyone listen to the Radio Andy clip that Shannon tweeted? Andy asks a Bravo producer who was present when he interviewed Brooks if he thinks he was faking it and he said he would not be surprised. He said that if you read about how liars react and detail things this is exactly what Brooks was doing. Andy was agreeing with him. You can be sure that Andy and the producers are privy to way more info about this whole mess than we will ever be so it would be pretty shocking at this point if Brooks DID have cancer for Bravo to be publicly saying this.

      Interesting.
      I think Bravo knew all along that Brooks was lying about his cancer returning.
      Bravo, also, knew Vicki was in on the whole scam. The network decided to see
      how it played out and if the Two Uglies would get caught. They did.

        ITA. Brooks tweeted earlier today “I was “coerced” to film because I was dating Vicki. They would’ve reduced her role if I didn’t film. Hindsight is 20/20.”. He knew exactly what he was doing being filmed and now he’s claiming he did for her. Either way it was to make money – her Bravo check or promote Club Detox.

          So he’s saying Vicki, not Bravo, “coerced” him to stay on the show. LOL Imagine her shouting at him and then getting him where he thrives ……. developing a scam so they both could get air time.
          They’re so scummy they deserve each other.

        I lost ALL respect for Andy Cohen! He is biting at bit for Tre returning to RHONJ and I won’t be watching convicted felons!!

      Thanks for posting this. How interesting. I don’t think Bravo cares much for Brooks. Whenever he is taking his yearly break from Vicki, he trashes them and tries to spill production secrets. I bet they were thrilled to have an opportunity to cast doubt on him and expose some of his con past.

        I agree Jenny, I think Andy can’t stand him. I just can’t imagine Andy and the producer talking like that if they knew he was sick.

    Meghan is a busy body with too much time on her hands; her husband being away so much could be the main reason. She needs to repair her own relationship before doing damage to others!

    I believe that Vicki G is unaware that Brooks is faking. Many women that are in love will tend to believe their partner and be blinded. Think of all the denial because one loves a person happens so often. Have you ever tried to tell a family member or a friend something that you know is going on with their partner? I find that love does blind us as well as loyalty. Brooks is pretty smooth . Many women and men have defended their partner when others see the lies etc. I am not a Brooks fan by no means . I do feel Vicki does not know the reality and is not in some kind of lying scam. Have a beautiful day!
