The Real Housewives of Orange County star Brooks Ayers claimed that the ladies of Bravo's popular franchise "create drama" during a sit-down with ET, and now the stars are speaking out.
"There is no manufactured drama on the show," RHOC star Heather Dubrow told ET. "You don't get to see everything, but what you are seeing is what happens. This season is raw, real and disturbing. The audience is smart. I think Brooks is going to be judged and tried by the court of public opinion. The response to this season is so good, because it's real. To say this season and situations were manufactured for drama is just not true."
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump sides with Dubrow in regards to whether the drama is real.
"I have a very strong opinion about that," Vanderpump told ETonline. "I've done 170 episodes, and ironically, Orange County is produced by the same production company [as RHOBH]. I've been very vocal about that. No, they don't need to manufacture drama. How can you back that up in editing? You want to tell the true story. The true story is always way more fascinating than fiction. The only thing maybe producers will say is, 'Speak your mind.'"
Ayers' comments were made after he came under fire by cast mates who questioned his cancer diagnosis, accusing him of faking the illness.
According to Ayers, he was diagnosed with Stage 3 Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a form of blood cancer. He is reportedly being treated by his oncologist and he told ET that since he's started taking supplements and doing IV therapy that his "numbers were normalized."
Dubrow has not been in contact with Ayers, but she feels the audience should watch the reunion and make up their own minds.
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
