Tim Gunn has a few opinions about Michaele Salahi and her multiple sclerosis news — and he doesn’t care if she and her husband, Tareq, hear them.

“I would never wish MS upon anyone. And if in fact Michaele has MS, I feel very bad for her. I have a very dear friend who has MS,” Gunn said Thursday morning on ‘Access Hollywood Live.’

‘I find it curious that the story is coming out now, though. I would want a doctor’s note,’ he said.


The ‘Project Runway’ guru was on ‘AHL’ out of Los Angeles to promote his new book, but he wasn’t alone — the Salahis were on the other end of the live satellite feed for the show in New York.

‘I don’t mind if the Salahis hear this. I believe that they are sociopaths,’ Gunn told hosts Billy Bush and Kit Hoover. ‘They believe their own lies.’

‘The Real Housewives of D.C.’ cast member reacted to the accusations: ‘It makes me sad,’ she told ‘AHL,’ going on to say that she’d met Gunn at a youth AIDS fundraiser and had a great time, though ‘he probably doesn’t remember that.’

Indeed, Gunn, who was off the air but still on set in L.A. when Michaele responded, had ...

... a different take. ‘Tim is in the control room and telling us he’s never met you,’ host Bush told the Salahis.
