Brooks Ayers is making a last-ditch effort to mend his tattered reputation by penning a scandalous memoir that will spill all the secrets of The Real Housewives of Orange County.
Ayers said he plans to reveal the truth about what goes on behind the scenes of the show and how they spun his health storyline to make it look like he was faking having cancer — a charge he still emphatically denies, despite being caught providing falsified medical records.
“They basically pitched me as this poor guy from Mississippi preying on a vulnerable, successful, self-made woman,” he told Page Six on Tuesday. “I’m not bound contractually by anything to not share the intel about what transpires behind production, Bravo, what they try to do, etc.”
“I didn’t fake cancer,” he insisted. “Who in their right mind would fake cancer?”
Ayers places the blame for the way RHOC absolutely skewered him on Briana Culberson, the daughter of his ex-girlfriend Vicki Gunvalson.
“[She] hates my guts… and got paid handsomely the past three seasons to do nothing but bring drama into her own mom’s life regarding me. I’m going to expose all of that,” he said.
Regarding Gunvalson, he said there are no hard feelings despite her turnaround on whether or not she believes him.
“I want nothing but the best for her and she wants the best for me,” he declared. “I’m not doing this because she did it to me, but she’s a grown woman and she’s making business decisions to continue earning money. I’m a grown man and I want to do what I can do to rehab my reputation… and you can’t do it on reality TV.”
Gunvalson has not yet commented on Ayers’ book plans.
