Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson is constantly defending her boyfriend, Brooks Ayers. Even her daughter, Briana, has accused him of being an “opportunist,” so when he got a dental upgrade in Season 7, Episode 17, viewers wondered whether it was Vicki who paid for it.
In her latest Bravo blog, Vicki says that she did not finance Brooks’s new smile. While she did introduce him to her own dentist, Dr. Heufner, she wrote, “I did not pay for them, nor would I ever. I was there strictly for emotional support to show him how proud I was that he committed to doing this for himself. Even though I encouraged him to do it, it was ultimately his decision, his choice and his financial obligation.”
Vicki also explained that while Brooks was pictured missing a tooth, that was just part of the procedure.
“He did not have a missing tooth prior to seeing Dr. Huefner. He actually had that tooth extracted on purpose due to the tooth being not aligned with the others and to alleviate braces,” Vicki wrote. “The space was filled it[sic] with a bridge and veneers all along the top teeth, and was all accomplished in less than four weeks without having to do braces.”
In other words, Vicki wants you do know she didn’t take up with some toothless man from Mississippi.
