Brooks Ayers is speaking out against claims made by Vicki Gunvalson in her latest interview.

"Vicki keeps saying she hates me and is not going to talk to me ever again and that I duped her," Ayers told E! News exclusively one day after the Real Housewives of Orange County star's sit-down with Andy Cohen aired. "She was texting me just last night! We were bantering back and forth about some of the things she had said on the special."

He continued, "I called her out on a lot of it and she basically said it was something she had to do to protect herself."

During her interview on Watch What Happens Live Monday night, Gunvalson said, "It's very clear he doesn't have cancer if he forged documents." She added, "I hate him, I hate him with everything in me, and I don't hate people, but I believed him, I trusted him, I defended him, took a bullet for him when people didn't like him."

In response to Ayers' allegations that Gunvalson texted, e-mailed or called him in recent days, the OG of the OC said it's just not the case.

"It is not true at all," she told E! News exclusively. "I did not reach out to him. He is lying."

Another topic of discussion during Monday's interview was whether or not Gunvalson has reached out to co-stars Meghan King Edmonds, Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador and Heather Dubrow to offer an apology.

E! News has exclusively obtained an email Gunvalson sent to her co-stars. In the letter dated Nov. 15, the Bravo star calls the entire cancer experience "a living nightmare" that she just wants to end.

"I never meant to bring any of you into this and I do wish you all would not have turned your back on me but come and help me," she wrote. "Regarding my ‘next move'.... It's to carry on my life and to put this nightmare to end. To be the best mother and grandmother to my children, to continue to be the professional business owner that I am and to have you ladies understand the HELL that I have gone through having him in my life."

She added, "I hope none of you will ever experience it and yes Tamra you were right. I should have listened to you. Beyond that I ask for forgiveness and am sincerely sorry."

In true Real Housewives of Orange County style, however, some co-stars present a different story about Vicki's apology. After Monday's episode aired, Beador took to Facebook where she called parts of the interview "bulls--t."

"My phone has not rung once. I have received zero apology," she explained to her followers. "It's all for the cameras. No apologies yet! No remorse, still!"

Edmonds added on Twitter, "@vgunvalson APOLOGIZE TO MY FACE! No decency to even text!!? And to @HayleyEdmonds15 that u also promised. Her mom actually DIED."

A source, however, tells E! News that Gunvalson reached out to everyone and has even spoken to Judge and Dubrow before Cohen's interview aired.
