Despite appearing regularly on Real Housewives of Orange County back in the day, it looks like Brooks keeps a relatively low profile online these days. He’s a pretty active retweeter on Twitter, but his Instagram profile is private. Brooks announced plans to write a tell-all book about his experience on the show back in 2016, but so far, that hasn’t happened. However, he has spoken publicly a few times since leaving the show (and Vicki’s life), so we know a bit about what he’s been up to lately.
First of all, Brooks admitted to falsifying medical records when speaking with E! News back in 2015 (after his lie was exposed). “Words cannot express the deep regret that I have in fabricating documents to ‘prove’ to the world that I, in fact, have cancer. What I did was wrong and inexcusable. I acted alone, without Vicki’s knowledge to produce documents for a reality TV show in hopes of putting doubts about my cancer to rest.”
In March of 2018, Page Six reported that Brooks had gotten married to Christy Groves Lindeman, a sales director for a tire company. Brooks said he began dating Christy in November of 2016, and their life together appears to be markedly different from Brooks’ relationship with Vicki. “I’ve never been happier,” he said. “We’re doing fantastic. It’s been a drama-free life now. It’s a true blessing. She’s an amazing woman. Both of our families and kids absolutely adore both of us.”
