How do you handle a co-worker(same level of authority) who disrespects you. I'm the female, he's "the male"?

I am a C.O.O(chief operations officer) against a VP Sales with an ego. I don't jump when he needs something like I do with my boss. He is a whiner and I'm to just "handle the situation". Many sit downs, but no resolution. He does not like to play nice in the sandbox type. It's exhausting and he complains to my boss all the time. I just do my job. How do I detour this from my boss, so he doesn't have to soothe egos so the company can run without dismissing my associate from his position. I'm the company man, he's the company girl(no offensive to women - he's just catty and causes trouble) I'm not the only one he targets - its mainly women. How can I get to a respectable level without causing my boss to have an ulcer - We NEED to work together.

That's not a decision you can make for your colleague, and frankly if you've already done your part to try to resolve this - it's entirely up to him now about how to resolve this... More
