Alexia Echevarria accused Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Melissa Gorga of buying her followers on Instagram. She also shaded Leah McSweeney, calling her a drama queen and claiming she’s not “interested” in her. The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip castmates fell into drama during the heated trip to Thailand, which is now airing.

Alexia, an ‘OG’ from Real Housewives of Miami, is good friends with Melissa’s sister-in-law (and nemesis?) Teresa Giudice. Reportedly, after Teresa discussed a cheating rumor concerning Melissa, the 44-year-old and her husband Joe Gorga skipped Teresa’s wedding to Luis Ruelas, and the family members haven’t spoken since. Now, the entire Bravoverse is seemingly divided between Team Teresa and Team Melissa.

On Watch What Happens Live, Alexia was asked which sister-in-law has the most Instagram followers.

After answering Teresa, Andy informed her that Melissa has more – and the screen revealed that Teresa has 2.3 million while Melissa boasts 2.7.

“She bought them,” said Alexia of Melissa in a clip shared by @queensofbravo on Instagram. “She bought them. They don’t count.”

Alexia also threw shade at one of her co-stars on Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip, Leah McSweeney, who expressed on a recent episode that she was bored by Alexia’s stories.

In a question-and-answer game, shared by @cici.loves.you, Alexia claimed Leah was the biggest drama queen on the show. When asked which cast member she would like to travel with again, Alexia stated: “All of them except Leah.”

“Honestly I’m not trying to pick on her,” she continued, “but I just didn’t find her interested in us, so why would I be interested in her?”

Season three of The Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip is currently airing on Peacock with new episodes dropping every Thursday.
