PHOTOS: Meghan McCain Slams Ariana Madix for Cropping Her Out of Pic & Blocking Her on IG, Shades Her "Mean Girl" Antics and Admits She "Felt Bad" for Raquel Leviss Amid 'Scandoval'

Meghan McCain called out Ariana Madix on the latest episode of her new podcast.

Months after the Vanderpump Rules star, 38, cropped her out of a photo taken at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, Meghan, 39, spoke to guest Carlos King about her interaction with Ariana, shading her behavior as “mean girl stuff,” confirming she blocked her on Instagram, and expressing empathy for Rachel “Raquel” Leviss, 29.

“[I] felt bad for Raquel after the [Pump Rules] reunion,” Meghan said on the October 23 episode of Meghan McCain Has Entered the Chat, via Decider, doubling down on her “unpopular opinion” about the fallout of “Scandoval,” which saw Raquel, a former friend of Ariana’s, getting caught having an affair with Ariana’s now-ex-boyfriend, Tom Sandoval, 40.

As Pump Rules fans may recall, Ariana was invited to the Washington, D.C. event in April, along with Lala Kent, 33, just one month after “Scandoval” broke. And although she took a group photo with Meghan and her husband, Ben Domenech, as well as Jerry O’Connell and Rebecca Romijn, she cropped Meghan and Ben out of it when she shared it on her Instagram Story.

In the original image, shared by Jerry, the entire group was seen.

Meanwhile, in Ariana’s Instagram Story, Meghan and Ben, as well as another man on the opposite side of the image, were removed.

As she looked back on the alleged snub on her podcast, via Entertainment Weekly, Meghan said Ariana seemed disinterested in interacting with her.

“I post it, she reposts I think Jerry O’Connell’s picture, and cuts me and my friends out of it. I was so confused and shocked, so I called my boss, and I was like, ‘FYI, this is causing unnecessary drama. Also, like, I didn’t even talk to her. What’s happening?'” she recalled.

And while Ariana’s team insisted she had “no agenda” at the time, months later, she blocked the former co-host of The View.

“I found out on accident,” Meghan shared. “I would’ve respected you if you just said, ‘I don’t f*ck with Republicans. I don’t like Meghan McCain’ — just say that. Don’t come up with this weird story and then block me afterward.”

After then noting that their encounter was “mean girl stuff,” Meghan warned Ariana about a potential future run-in.

“If you are a person who’s coming to my town, with my people, in my industry, the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, it’s a time we come together, happily,” she said. “It’s a time for liberals and Republicans and everything in between, and journalists and entertainers, to celebrate covering politics.”

Following the photo crop in April, Ariana blamed the ordeal on the “difference between a main feed and a zoomed IG story.”

“We all know how aspect ratios work,” she noted on Instagram.

Vanderpump Rules season 11 is expected to premiere on Bravo sometime later this year or early next year.

OMG if we could only crop her out of our social media, and IRL go away Meghan boo hoo nobody likes you and aren’t you a mom now? And you are crying on social media that somebody that doesn’t know you but took a picture with you cropped you out of the pic. This makes me love Ariana even more! Stupid bitch people have real problems STFU

Meghan knows ALL about causing “unnecessary drama” better than anybody.

I don’t blame Ariana one damn bit.

Meghan “Do-you-know-who-my-father-is” McCain needs to take all of the seats and get tf over herself.

No one gives a single dry, dusty fuck about her getting cropped out of an IG pic.

Meghan made a fool of herself responding to this one. One could also say ariana knows she sided with Raquel so blocking her would be normal. I get cropping to zoom in more on the center plus the people on the sides they don’t even know. What’s the big deal bringing it up makes this Meghan sound desperate and needy. And no the White House is not her turf even though she alluded to it. Fuck her

Meghan isn’t good at “reading the room”…
Nobody likes her.
Nobody.
She’s just mad Arianna made clear she didn’t like her, to her face… from what she says so why is she saying she needed to further tell her? So she could whine about that too?
Yeah… Meghan is desperate.
The view is still going just as strong, without her.
So, I guess they didn’t tune in for her, like she said.
If she’d had been nice she’d be “team Arianna blah blah blah”… she didn’t change her tune, until she shaded her.
She’s so pathetic and desperate to be noticed.
Of course she contacted her agent to whine and bitch. ????

She has never risen to the mantle of John’s daughter. Steve Schmidt had some harsh descriptions of her behavior during her dad’s presidential campaign. Something along the lines of a spoiled brat who demanded attention and wasted time.

This grown ass woman who is supposed to be educated, well spoken, refined and now a MOM, is upset because she and her husband were cropped out of an instagram photo! This is how someone reacts in junior high! She’s throwing an online tantrum thinking she’s going to embarrass Arianna for being petty. I think Meagan just wanted to get her name in the press any which way! Pathetic!

Meghan is an obnoxious liar & mean trick. She was such a Rachel fan that she couldn’t wait to take photos with Lala & Ariana. She was so butt-hurt about being cropped out of a photo that she went on the attack over it. Of course, Ariana blocked her, who wouldn’t. No one is obligated to interact with a no-talent, nepo baby. Crawl back under your rock Meghan. Maybe you can go yell at people to “Keep my fathers name out of your mouth!”
