However, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that did not stop the 56-year-old O.G. from the O.C. from sending him well-wishes — served with a side of shade!
"VIcki was put off by Brooks getting married. But she just thinks he is a total joke and she cannot wait until his new wife finds out what a crook he is," said a source close to The Real Housewives of Orange County star.
However, according to the source, Gunvalson's personal feelings toward Ayers — who, as Radar reported, lied about having cancer while starring alongside Gunvalson on RHOC several seasons ago — didn't prevent her from taking the high road!
"Vicki reached out and sent her congrats, but she will always hate him and he knows this," the insider told Radar. "He broke her heart and she will never let him back in her life."
Ayers dropped the bombshell that he had married his Ohio girlfriend of less than two years, Christy Groves Lindeman, in a Facebook post on Sunday.
"She's an amazing young lady and I'm a very fortunate guy," Ayers gushed, adding that he's "never been happier."
