"I witnessed him sick, losing weight, vomiting after treatments," Vicki Gunvalson says

As her Real Housewives of Orange County costars question her part in Brooks Ayers’ cancer coverup, Vicki Gunvalson maintains that she too is a victim of his lies.

Ever since her ex-boyfriend confessed to faking medical documents Wednesday – though he still claims he has cancer – Gunvalson, 53, has been answering fans’ questions on Twitter about the scandal that’s been a season in the making.

“It’s not about ME or believing me – this is on him. I have nothing to do what he has pulled regarding med records and his health,” she tweeted Friday.

A day earlier, she addressed a fan who told her she needs to “mend many relationships” after defending Ayers for so long: “Yes I know … Nothing was intentional on my end. I believed a man I loved. Who hasn’t?”

And when a user called “bull—-” on her story, asking how she could have been deceived by a man she was living with, the “OG O.C. Housewife” accused Ayers of acting ill.

“I witnessed him sick, losing weight, vomiting after treatments,” she tweeted Thursday. “He admitted to fake docs. I don’t understand.”

Meanwhile, Bravo aired an interview with Ayers and Andy Cohen – taped before his bombshell admission and retreat from the spotlight – on Thursday night.

Ayers blamed Gunvalson for stoking the Housewives’ uncertainty.

“Who would ever question if I have cancer? The challenge, Andy, is I spent a grand total of about 10 minutes with those ladies specifically asking me questions about my cancer over the course of the year,” he said. “The main source of information came from Vicki, who sometimes leaves out some critical pieces of a story that create those questions, and quite frankly, Vicki misspeaks quite a bit and sometimes tells people what they want to hear or to gain sympathy for us. She misspoke quite a bit.”

Of course, he backtracked from that narrative in Wednesday’s statement.

“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,” he 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.”
