Messing appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live this week, and, to no one's surprise, Gunvalson's ex, Brook Ayers, came up during the conversation. What was less predictable were the rude comments Messing had about Gunvalson.

"She totally knew," Messing said, referring to Gunvalson's role in the controversy surrounding Ayers' faked cancer diagnosis. "Vicki knew. She got me really, really mad. She was so sanctimonious. When she compared herself to Jesus Christ, I was like, OK, I’m out."

Gunvalson, whose relationship with Ayers and his fake diagnosis created plenty of drama for the last season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, then took to social media to fire back at Messing.

"Well @DebraMessing doesn't know what she's talking about," Gunvalson tweeted after the show aired. "She didn't witness what I did! I'm tired of repeating the same thing!"


She also defended herself against fans of the show, some of whom tweeted that she must have known Ayers was faking his diagnosis.

"Not true!" she fired back at some accusatory tweets. "When u witness someone physically sick, spending time and money at doctors how do u not believe?"

Gunvalson wasn't the only one defending her side of the story; Lisa Vanderpump also came to her defense.

"@DebraMessing you don't know @LisaVanderpump And you don't know @vgunvalson side of her story. Its [sic] not fair to place judgment through TV.." Vanderpump tweeted.


Some of Gunvalson's fans also joined her side of the argument, tweeting their support.
