Vicki Gunvalson's on-again off-again boyfriend, who appeared regularly on the latest seasons of the "OC Housewives" franchise, revealed that he, in fact, fabricated documents in a statement to E! News Wednesday. While he still maintains that he does have cancer, he admits to faking documents that described treatment.

In the exclusive E! News statement, he starts: "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."

Ayers proceeds to admit he acted alone without Gunvalson's knowledge, in order to put cancer doubters "to rest."

Gunvalson took to Twitter to respond to a fan, regarding Ayer's statement:

Gunvalson's fellow Housewives co-star, Meghan King Edmonds, was intensely adamant all season about Ayer's lie. After the truth finally came out, she tweeted a very poignant statement.
