Judge joined Cohen on his show on Monday, June 27, and the stunning reality star, 48, confided that in her opinion, Gunvalson (who split with Ayers back in August 2015 amid accusations of fake cancer claims) has not closed that chapter of her life just yet."When you do something wrong you should ask for forgiveness right? Brooks Ayers cleared up rumors that he lied about his cancer diagnosis once and for all in a statement to Us Weekly on Thursday, March 24."Again, just because I am exercising my right to NOT share my actual medical records doesn't mean that I am guilty of making something like this up.Who even would question anyone dealing with this disease? She is known for being a driven workaholic who demands perfection."He added: "Vicki was my partner for five years and I believe the show was the demise of our relationship."Having lived under public scrutiny for the prior five years along with being wrongfully positioned as something that I wasn't and knowing that I had a large battle ahead of me, I simply made a request to Vicki that we deal with this in a very private manner so as to keep out the noise of any questioning of my treatment choices moving forward.I was approached by a few media outlets to confirm my diagnosis and made a calculated decision to address it via a statement and an on camera interview in hopes that we would 'put this to bed' and allow me to move forward in private," Ayers told Us in the statement."As the season progressed, I grew more weary of the foolishness of all of the antics of Vicki's friends which, in turn, created enormous pressure on our relationship."Ayers has moved on since filming the Bravo series — and he would like to keep it that way. I pride myself in apologizing when I am wrong or have wronged others either intentionally or unintentionally. She is a woman of integrity and compassion, and would never lie about something so serious as this."Gunvalson, 53, in turn, would also like to stop speaking on the matter.What won't change is how much respect he has for Gunvalson. Through the first five years of dating Vicki, I was coined as a con man, low life, gold digger, dead beat, etc. "First of all I would like to thank Brooks for once and for all speaking out on this, and for reiterating what I have said numerous times," she said in a statement to Us Weekly on Thursday.
In his statement, Ayers also claimed that the RHOC vet was never involved in what many considered a "created story line.""I simply didn't continue to give her information about my illness when I learned of the devious nature and intentions of the cast.
Second, Vicki never has paid me to be quiet regarding this 'supposed' scam nor has paid me to release any statements," he claimed.
