Vicki Gunvalson still doesn't want to accept—or tell—the whole truth.

After E! News exclusively revealed that Brooks Ayers never received treatment at the City of Hope hospital, his ex-girlfriend is speaking out about the findings.

Between Ayers admitting to fabricating medical documents to Gunvalson's co-stars questioning her credibility, some may think she would want to set the record straight once and for all.

But in an interview with Extra, her quotes tell a completely different story. Whether Gunvalson is discussing treatment plans or buzzworthy moments from Real Housewives of Orange County, we've come to the conclusion that the OG of the OC is still lying for her ex.

Take a look at six major quotes from her sit-down that still do not ring true today.

1. "I'm completely shocked. I've seen the bills, I went to City of Hope."

What bills could Gunvalson be talking about? If it's in regards to the documents Ayers showed E! News, those have been proven to be false. "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," Ayers told E! News. "I never intended to disclose my actual medical records or details about my private and personal medical history, thus the rationalization of presenting documents that weren't true simply for a 'storyline' for the show."

2. "He was there all morning [at City of Hope] so how do you think anything other than he's getting chemo? You go to City of Hope because you have cancer, not because you have nothing else to do during the day."

Besides the obvious argument that City of Hope has never treated anyone under the name "David Brooks Ayers," the hospital also offers a wide variety of services for patients without cancer. "Our reputation for groundbreaking discoveries, innovative treatments and compassionate patient care makes us a leader in the fight to help patients here and around the world conquer cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases," their website states. "Every clinical trial we conduct, promising treatment we pursue, and resource, service and comfort we provide stems from our primary mission to heal the whole person."

3. "I think that towards the end of filming, with the start of the psychic and Tamra saying the psychic didn't see cancer, I thought, 'Well, then cool, he's cured,' but then it… didn't make sense and why is he switching doctors?"

Psychic Scott Cruz did not appear towards the end of filming. In fact, his date with the cast aired on episode 11. With the three-part reunion, season 10 ended up having 22 episodes. "Nothing was set up to talk about. I was there shooting with them for three hours," Cruz told reporters. "I heard Vicki was saying I came on the show because of other people's motives, and I found that to be offensive. I'm not going to be persuaded by anybody else to tell me what to do. That's not how I conduct my own work, so I think it's a load of crap to hear that to be honest with you."

4. "I didn't want to promote [the cancer storyline], I didn't want to talk about it."

For the second half of season 10, the primary storyline for Real Housewives of Orange County was whether or not Ayers had cancer. Throughout the journey, Gunvalson would post blogs on Bravo's website defending her man. She would tweet health updates about Ayers. In fact, she told one follower that she hoped to "inspire" others by bringing the cancer storyline to the small screen. "Why did you bring it on the show?" one viewer asked. Gunvalson responded, "To encourage others that are going through their journey of health issues.#inspire"

5. "Why would I think he would be lying to me? What would be his benefit?"

For Gunvalson to insinuate there weren't any red flags with Ayers would be inaccurate. For several seasons, Gunvalson faced accusations from her co-stars and even her daughter about how Ayers acted. Lauri Waring Peterson, Tamra Judge and Briana Culberson brought up serious allegations that could cause serious concerns about Ayers as a faithful, loving boyfriend. While Ayers denied all claims including being physically abusive to Gunvalson, many thought he wasn't a good guy.

"From day one I called him out. I felt he was a con man. I could see it in his eyes and nothing he said was making sense," Judge told E! News. "He's a charmer, but then you get to know him and after a while his stories don't add up."

As to why he would lie about cancer, fans have speculated that he wanted fame, money, sympathy or just attention.

6. "I hate him, I hate him with everything in me, and I don't hate people."

A source close to Gunvalson believes she's "absolutely still in love with Brooks. She talks about missing him. She's dating other people here and there, but she's not over Brooks." In fact, the two have recently communicated via phone. "They have texted a lot in the past few weeks and they've spoken a couple of times," another source added.
