Earlier this week, "Extra's" interview with "Real Housewives of Orange County" star Vicki Gunvalson ignited headlines around the world as she opened up for the first time about ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers' cancer scandal.
Now, host Mario Lopez is with Vicki again and getting her take on the backlash from her fellow "Housewives," after Brooks admitted he did not receive cancer treatments at City of Hope.
Heather Dubrow stated on her PodcastOne show that she doesn't want to film with Vicki anymore.
Vicki's response? Referring to the plastic-surgery show, she told Mario, "Well, then she can go film 'Botched.' She has other shows she can film."
When he asked why Heather is taking the scandal so personally, Vicki said, "Good question, isn't it? Why are any of the 'Housewives' taking it personal? It's not about them. Maybe they should come over and give me a hug and say, ‘I'm sorry we bailed when you needed us.'"
Vicki said the biggest misconception is that she was in on the deception. "I wasn't in on [it]… I loved him with all my heart."

She's definitely not in love with him anymore, saying, "No, I'm not in love with Brooks. He hurt me way too much."
Gunvalson added, "He hasn't apologized to me," and ruled out forgiving him. "God, no. There are a lot of great men out there, and I'm deserving of a great man or I'm deserving of being single. I don't really know what God's got planned for me, but I'm never going to deal with this… I'm too good for this. Sorry, I am."
One thing that is going Vicki's way is her relationship with her daughter Briana, who told her mom she didn’t believe Brooks. "Briana was right," the reality star conceded. "She was right all along. My relationship with Briana is amazing."
