Brooks Ayers doesn’t deny any of his wrongdoings in addressing RadarOnline.com’s exclusive clip of his revelations, but Vicki Gunvalson’s on-again, off-again beau implied that the bad boy behavior that he boasted about in the clip “occurred several years ago.
"Timing is everything,” he said, adding he found it “interesting to note that the (audio recordings) and videos recently released were recorded over a year ago about events that occurred several years ago."
Ayers -- who earlier blew off the jarring recording as a publicity stunt -- said he “chose to deal with the situation privately with loved ones whom I hurt, certainly not publicly, as it was no one else's business."
"I'm hopeful that the legal process will reveal the truth along with swift justice for wrongful actions,” Ayers said.
As we previously reported, Ayers — in the recording documenting a Las Vegas business deal, admitted he’s “been known to cheat” on Gunvalson — including with prostitutes — and that The Real Housewives of Orange County star would be hurt even if she found out he “f*cked somebody else” during one of their down periods.
He also conceded an instance of physically-aggressive behavior toward Gunvalson during a Puerto Vallarta vacation, stressing “it was never a hit or a slap.”
