The Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson has been tirelessly defending her boyfriend Brooks Ayers to her family and friends, insisting that he isn’t really a “deadbeat dad,” and her co-star Heather Dubrow is now jumping on the bandwagon to support him too.
On Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live show Tuesday night Heather was asked by a caller what she thought of Brooks following the ABC 20/20 episode that aired recently calling him out for being a deadbeat dad.
“I’m very fond of Vicki and I’ve had nothing but lovely interactions with Brooks,” Heather said diplomatically.
RadarOnline.com exclusively reported that Brooks was a deadbeat dad to two women, his ex-wife Kim and the woman he cheated on her with.
She charged: “I want the bastard to pay child support!”
However, Heather didn’t address the reports about Brooks not supporting his child and instead slammed the Emmy award winning show.
“I think it’s sad that a news magazine like 20/20 didn’t cover both sides.”
Heather said that the second part of The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion show will feature Brooks and he may address the reports.
“You will be seeing Brooks next week on part 2 [of the Reunion show] and maybe he can answer some of your questions,” she said.
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs on Bravo Tuesdays 9/8c.
