A heated exchange between RHOM’s Alexia Nepola and Adriana de Moura at Miami International Airport turned into an explosive screaming match.
Eyewitnesses say Adriana told Alexia, “You act like you’re the star of the show,” — with the mom of two firing back, “Yes, I am the star of the show!”
Adriana was then overheard telling her RHOM co-star Julia Lemigova that Alexia was mean to her and had it out for her because she’s the weakest link on the show.
“This is your friend … do you see what she does to me? Do you want to be friends with this person?” Adriana told Julia of Alexia.
Meanwhile, another source tells Page Six that Alexia watched the first two episodes of RHOM season 6 on the flight home to Miami from BravoCon in Las Vegas. The RHOM star was set off by the lies Adriana spread about her family in the episodes.
Eyewitnesses say that Alexia sitting with their co-star Julia on the flight made Adriana “jealous,” with sources adding that the Miami singer has been trying to “pull the victim card” while actually being the actual “bully” within the RHOM cast.
“Adriana is very jealous of Alexia’s new friendship and relationship with Julia,” the source claims, adding that Adriana allegedly “kept coming up to Julia” throughout their flight from Vegas to Miami.
When Alexia addressed her issues with Adriana, she “blamed production” for the shady comments about Alexia’s marriage and financial situation.
However, a source tells Page Six:
“Production does not make anybody do anything. It’s a lie that producers ask the cast to stir the pot. That’s not true.”
The insider adds that Adriana is “desperate” for a storyline on RHOM and wants to be upgraded from a friend to a full-time Housewife.
The two have not spoken since their public spat but will come face-to-face to film the RHOM season 6 reunion in the coming months.
The drama between the two Bravo stars stems from season 5 of RHOM. During one episode, Alexia slammed Adriana for saying, “Accidents have consequences,” referring to her son Frankie’s 2011 near-fatal car accident that left him with brain injuries.
Adriana has since apologized and made it known she regretted using the analogy.
The frienemies attempted to repair their friendship during the premiere episode of season 6 of RHOM. However, their attempts were made in vain as Adriana continued gossiping and spreading lies about Alexia’s life.
As for Alexia, she has denied Adriana’s claims that her marriage is struggling and that she and Todd have financial troubles.
RHOM airs Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
