Vicki Gunvalson is still at a loss as to how Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Orange County ended in a blowup with her closest pals and costars. In a recent blog post, the Bravo vet admitted she doesn’t believe her ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers could have faked cancer and that, in her opinion, she didn’t betray Shannon Beador.

“As I write this blog, I have so many mixed emotions, but mostly it's sadness and betrayal,” Gunvalson revealed in her latest entry on Friday, Oct. 16. “The constant subject line of Brooks' cancer, his choice of treatment, and if he was ‘faking’ it or not has gotten out of control. My stance is I do not believe he faked cancer, as there are way too many people involved, way too many doctor visits and way too many doctor reports which would be very difficult to falsify. As I said at the reunion, I didn't have enough information that he does have cancer, and I didn't have enough information that he doesn’t.”

As exclusively revealed by Us, Gunvalson and Ayers called it quits for the second time in August after four years together.

The hardest part about all the drama for Gunvalson, however, was knowing that the “ladies initially were coming from a good place,” and that “unfortunately [her] emotions were heightened due to many personal reasons.”

“Hindsight,” she added, “I didn't handle things always in the calmest manner which I am sorry for that, but I was extremely frustrated having to always be questioned about him.”

Gunvalson is also equally as frustrated with how things ended with Beador. As fans are well aware, Beador flipped on Gunvalson after she felt that Gunvalson divulged personal information about her husband David’s affair at Tamra Judge’s baptism. 

“I never betrayed her, she was just embarrassed that it was exposed again when it was supposed to be about badgering me,” Gunvalson continued. “I knew what David and Shannon shared this season, and it was Shannon's decision to reveal the affair so I didn't think it was a secret to tell my brother. All the ladies already knew, so for me to tell my brother privately was NOT betraying her.”

In fact, Gunvalson claims that it was Judge who first disclosed Shannon and David’s affair to the group. “What you don't know is that last year Tamra actually told the group about David's affair at a dinner we were all at, and even disclosed the woman's name and information about her. Bottom line here is Shannon knew that Heather, Tamra, and Lizzie all knew and by me telling my brother privately in my home was not any secret,” she concluded.

Gunvalson also apologized for dragging Heather and Terry Dubrow into the situation, and ended her post informing fans she’s “looking forward to some quiet down time to enjoy the fall and be with [her] family.”
