Vicki Gunvalson Shuts Down Cancer Charity, Then Says It Wasn’t Her Charity
Or, more accurately, she never started a charity in the first place but was merely the spokesperson... we think? We're a little confused, actually.
"I just shut it down because there was a lot of naysayers out there," she said. "I'm not going to do something that's going to be criticized when I did it from a good place."
She then clarified it wasn’t actually her charity in the first place. "I was just a spokesperson for it. So it wasn't mine."
Well, forgive us for the misconception, Vick, but you sure made it sound like you'd started a charity back in June when you said, "I've actually started a charity called Kill All Cancer."
The 54-year-old's involvement with the charity is made more clear with a statement on the now-defunct organization's website from its actual founder, J.R. Jordan.
"We approached Vicki Gunvalson because she's on a disruptive platform and because she has held steadfast and truthful in her fight against cancer," J.R. explained, adding, "there was zero compensation" for Vicki's role as a spokesperson.
However, in light of controversy surrounding her involvement — and the shadow of doubt cast upon her ex Brooks Ayers's cancer diagnosis — Kill All Cancer has elected to suspend operations for the time being "as we explore various platforms to convey our positive message."
