Lauri Peterson dropped quite the bombshell on Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8, Episode 12 when she told Tamra Barney that Brooks Ayers was cavorting with a “stripper slash prostitute” while still casually dating Vicki Gunvalson.
“This friend of my daughter’s, she gets paid to do some very questionable activities,” Lauri said.
Although Lauri never specified which daughter she was talking about (she has two girls from her first marriage and three step-daughters), her eldest one took to Twitter to squash the spreading rumors.
“None of my friends are hookers & none of MY friends have slept with Brooks - EW. I'm not who she was referring to,” Ashley Zarlin tweeted about her mother’s comment.
Interestingly enough, she added, “But I do know it's true.” This seems to confirm Brooks did sleep with another woman while dating Vicki at the same time.
Ashley continued, writing, “My mom was not talking about me when she said ‘my daughter’ is what I'm saying. I'm not attacking Vicki. I could give a s**t.”
Ever the loyal lover, Vicki responded to Ashley’s tweet, saying, “Lauri has NO business talking about cheating. Rumor has it she cheated on her 2nd husband.”
We don’t really see what spreading another rumor does to slam a rumor about yourself, but we can understand why Vicki is getting so defensive. Do you think she and Brooks belong together?
