Poor White House gatecrasher Michaele Salahi recently revealed she has multiple sclerosis, which is why she had to duck out of the state dinner so quickly. One problem, though: The newly snarky Tim Gunn doesn't believe it. “I find it curious that the story is coming out now," said the Project Runway style guru during an Access Hollywood Live appearance to promote his new book. "I would want a doctor’s note. I don’t mind if the Salahis hear this," he added. "I believe that they are sociopaths. They believe their own lies."

Michaele responded on the program that the comments made her sad. “I’ve met Tim and we actually worked with him at a youth AIDS fundraiser," she said. "He probably doesn’t remember that, but we had a great time.” Gunn said later he has never met the Salahis. If you need more on the celeb couple, click here.
