Shannon Beador and Gina Kirschenheiter battled it out on Instagram after wearing the same skirt on Watch What Happens Live, and fans called out Gina’s “mean girl behavior.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County stars began feuding last year, and their drama seems to have carried over into the new season, though viewers haven’t yet seen the full extent.

Amid Shannon’s WWHL interview, Gina took to Instagram and shaded her co-star, drawing attention to the fact that Shannon wore the same skirt.

“Glad to see another happy customer shopping my LTK links!!” exclaimed Gina, via @queensofbravo. “Check out my LTK to see what Shannon will be wearing next!”

In a hashtag, Gina expressed that “immatation [sic]” is the greatest form of “flattery.”

Following the post, Shannon decided to clap back.

“@ginakirschenheiter, I’m not going to take it anymore. No one noticed you wearing that skirt on #WWHL… ????(including myself),” she wrote.

“But people noticed when I wore it. #59 #whoworeitbetter,” Shannon continued.

In her final hashtag, the star slammed Gina’s spelling error, writing: “#imitationNOTimmatation.”

Many fans agreed with Shannon’s sentiment and accused Gina of being unkind.

“Petty. Get over yourself,” wrote one fan via @byewighellodrama on Instagram. Another added, “First spell imitation correctly before being so mean.”

A different user asked, “Are you going to be the mean real estate agent now too?” A fourth fan also called out the “mean girl behavior.”

Another wrote, “Gina, no one is looking to you for fashion, hair or makeup tips. Let’s get real.”

A sixth commenter stated, “I feel like Shannon wore it better though!” A different viewer shared, “Soooo, not taking the high road?! Not a good look.”

Unfortunately, Gina wasn’t finished with her shade. On her Instagram Stories, via @queensofbravo, the star shared a screenshot of Shannon’s comment before seemingly insulting her age. Gina described the skirt as a “perfect fit for all ages … even 59.”
