In an exclusive interview with E! News, Ayers sat down the day after The Real Housewives of Orange County wrapped up its intense three-part reunion. During the reunion shows, Vicki Gunvalson, Ayers’ ex-girlfriend, shocked fans — and certainly Ayers himself — when she told host Andy Cohen, "My gut says he doesn’t have [cancer]."
When asked about her statements, Ayers claimed that Gunvalson has, since the show, changed her mind about his health prognosis. When the interviewer, Melanie Bromley, asked him if Gunvalson felt duped, Ayers responded, "She said no, she didn’t feel like she’s been duped — and, secondly, she does now believe that I have cancer."
Ayers claimed that Gunvalson told him this after the pair had been texting following the reunion shows. When prodded about why Gunvalson had so quickly changed her mind, he said, “You have to ask her. I don’t know why. I don’t know why somebody would change their mind as many times as she does.”
Then, in what might be the most shocking part of the interview, Ayers clarified that he "misspoke" when he perviously stated he went from stage 3 to stage 2 cancer.
He explained, “I was trying to communicate that my numbers were improving, as a lay person, trying to communicate, and I’m not a physician. It doesn’t decline in stage, so I totally misspoke about that.”
The entire interview will air on Nov. 12 on Bravo.
