RHOC's Brooks Ayers' response to the fake cancer rumors is the best

The Real Housewives of Orange County is getting completely insane.

On Monday’s episode, Heather Dubrow and Tamra Judge were pleading with fellow castmate Vicki Gunvalson to reveal more about her now-ex-boyfriend's medical records, all to appease everyone else’s need to confirm, without a doubt, that Brooks Ayers has cancer.

All season long, Ayers has faced harsh criticism about his health. In fact, several times, fellow Housewives have seemed crazed about it, calling his doctors pretending to be potential patients.

But Ayers is finally firing back saying, “Most of the women are making up the minor stuff in my opinion, and so, yeah, there’s gonna be some questions being asked, but the challenge for me — if you’ve got questions, come to me directly. Don’t talk behind my back, don’t assume and try to put the pieces together, and there has only been one time that these ladies have ever asked me about my cancer and my treatment.”

He continued saying, “… none of the women since we’ve gotten through filming in May have reached out to me asking how am I doing. If they really sincerely cared about me... you think they would reach out. I think they [talk about me] to create drama. Manufactured drama and that’s sad to me.”

In the latest episode, though, the ladies of the show claim they are only concerned he isn’t getting good treatment or advice, which is the worst excuse I’ve ever heard to try to explain away their crazy and rude behavior.

But the embattled Brooks continues, "Shannon and David [Beador], quite frankly, while they started being nice supporters of Vicki and myself, it was odd to me that Shannon gets all upset and bent out of shape that I didn’t go see her world-renowned physician when, in fact, I got world-renowned facilities that I’ve been going to for a year and a half. It’s not about who I go to. I thought it was about me getting well and better."

According to what Brooks told Entertainment Tonighthe was diagnosed with stage 3 non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a form of blood cancer.

And he has the best way of thinking about the "manufactured drama" he says the ladies are creating, which could explain why he has not, before now, addressed the criticism. He said, “It’s useless drama that brings on stress that, quite frankly, no one needs and in particular my situation. I’m not running from anything.” Well said.

Do you think Ayers needs to prove he has cancer to the other women? Or do they need to back off and just be supportive?
