After a representative for the hospital where Ayers claimed to have received chemotherapy denied he was ever a cancer patient there, Ayers was forced to admit he forged the documents he provided as his proof — but stopped short of admitting he lied about having the disease in the first place.
However, all of the Housewives who have doubted Ayers' story from the start took the revelation as vindication, including Gunvalson — but despite her statement of shock and dismay, not everyone is buying her story that she didn't know he was conning them.
Heather Dubrow is demanding that Gunvalson answer a few questions, specifically what she knew and when.
"The root of it is, Brooks is proven to be a con man. Tamra [Judge] has said this for years," Dubrow told E! News. "I didn't believe it until this year; now I see it. But the question for Tamra and Shannon [Beador] and Meghan [King Edmonds] and myself is now Vicki's involvement in it, and when did she know? Because that's... You know, he doesn't affect us. He is who he is. He's gone from all of our lives, I'm happy to say. But Vicki is in our lives. And when did she know? I think I said in the reunion, 'We all agree he doesn't have cancer but when did you find out?' I said to her. So, I mean, those are the questions."
Earlier this month on her podcast Heather Dubrow's World, she joined co-stars Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador in expressing her wishes to kick Gunvalson off the show for participating in Ayers' ruse.
"I am very disappointed. Why I think this show was so good this season was it was authentic relationships and true storylines. I don't want to be on a show that is nothing less than authentic. It hurts us all… I have no interest in filming with her."
Gunvalson's future with The Real Housewives of Orange County remains up in the air.
