According to an insider, Ayers' attorney Sean P. Reis sent the strongly worded official letter to Edmonds on September 29, just one day after an explosive episode of RHOC showed Ayers presenting his cancer records to Tamra Judge.

Edmonds has said Ayers' claims of cancer are "suspicious," and admitted, "I did not believe that Brooks had cancer." In the letter, his attorney called such statements "defamatory."

In particular, he called out her claims that he is "faking" or lying about his diagnosis and records "false and defamatory," claiming they "have caused significant damage to Mr. Ayers' reputation," and "extreme emotional distress."

The attorney even claimed Edmonds has acted "with actual malice and intent to harm," "with reckless disregard for the truth" as she has publicly criticized him.

What's more, since Housewives has "a tremendous public following," the attorney said her comments have cut deep.

Now, the letter claims, Ayers "intends to file suit" against Edmonds "unless a mutual agreement can be reached to resolve this matter."

His demands? First, the attorney says Edmonds must retract her statements that Ayers is "faking" his cancer. Second, she must say that any claims he forged his record are false. And third, she must say she has "no personal knowledge" of his condition. All of these statements must be made "on national television," the attorney insists.

He also wants a public apology "on national television at the same time as the retraction," as well as a "promise to refrain from any further defamatory statements."

Ayers' attorney said he expected a response by the reunion filming on October 1, and he certainly got one. Edmonds told People she wouldn't back down, saying, "He knows he's a liar," and he "doesn't have the b*lls to sue."
