“There were a lot of things,” Gunvalson, 53, said. “Him being from the South, he really wanted to go back to the South. I just think the stress of the show and he’s sick, so at the end of the day, it just didn’t work anymore.”

She continued: “Long-term it wasn’t going to work. Short-term it was amazing.” Gunvalson also chocked up the breakup to Ayers’ tumultuous relationship with her daughter, Briana.

Us Weekly broke the news in August that the mom of two and Ayers split for the second time after four years of dating. On Monday, Gunvalson revealed that none of her RHOC costars have not been there for her since the breakup.

“It makes me realize we’re just TV friends, I guess,” Gunvalson said. (Last month, Heather Dubrow exclusively told Us that she’s estranged from Gunvalson amid the drama.)

In recent months, Gunvalson has defended Ayers against Tamra Judge and Meghan King Edmonds, who believe that he’s lying about his stage 3 cancer diagnosis. “I think the whole thing is pretty disgusting,” Gunvalson said of the rumors. “I don’t understand it at all, I just think it’s really odd and awkward.”
