The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion drama is continuing off screen.
Briana Wolfsmith-Culberson joined the Housewives on the couch to discuss her mom, Vicki Gunvalson, and her mom's relationship with ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers and made shocking allegations about him hitting on her at Vicki's birthday party. "And I told her that he did and she called me a liar and said that he would never want me," Briana said. She also said he wanted to show him his genitals and that his nickname was "Girth Brooks."
But now Brooks is hitting back, telling E! News exclusively that Briana is trying to put Vicki in the middle of things. "It's a typical Briana move, creating a 'He Said, She Said' scenario that once again puts her mother in the middle of a no-win situation," Brooks told E! News in an exclusive statement. "I'm glad that I no longer have to deal with this unnecessary drama. I categorically deny having said anything like that to Briana."
Brooks sat down with Andy Cohen for a separate interview ahead of The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion and said Briana is lying to manipulate and take advantage of Vicki.
During an exclusive interview with E! News, Brooks claimed Briana never gave him a chance.
"Vicki and I dated a year prior to Briana ever meeting me," he told E! News. "She never gave me a chance. And one thing led to another and the first time I met Briana was the very night that she told her mom that she was married, and I think that Briana had some significant issues as a child growing up with some 'Daddy issues.'"
The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion concludes on Sunday at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
