Now Kyla has taken to Instagram to hit back at the rumours in what appeared to be a thinly-veiled dig at rival Roach.

‘Of course I was apprehensive about filming a show like Real Housewives and it is ‘risky’ to a certain extent because you cannot control the edit and because the show is known for drama which personally, I hate,’ she wrote. 

‘I was shocked to find in the end that there is nothing off limits,’ she continued.

‘They say they won’t allow another woman to attack your career or your family but that wasn’t true. I found that other women’s ‘opinions’ which were categorically not based on fact were touted as truth just to try and put you down.’

Cast member Anjali Rao, who is one of the four newbies this season, dished the behind-the-scenes dirt in a scathing Instagram post aimed at Janet on Tuesday.

‘Everyone at the Cairns dinner from hell knows what really happened. EVERYONE, including Janet,’ Anjali wrote.

‘Production was forced to react in an unprecedented manner, by shutting the scene down because of her abominable, vicious behaviour,’ she added. 

Things spiralled out of control on Sunday night’s episode during a dinner in Cairns, when Janet accused of Kyla of lying about taking lavish trips to Paris.

However, it appears there could be more to their feud than what was shown on screen, with Janet claiming on Instagram on Tuesday that Kyla and Anjali had been feeding ‘false stories’ about her to various fan websites. 

She cited a Real Housewives fan account on Twitter as the source, but Anjali has since denied the accusation.

‘How does one person have so much time to spend making up complete twaddle about others?’ Anjali wrote on Instagram, before branding Janet ‘a miserable desperate woman’.

Kyla also accused Janet of bending the truth in a comment shared to the Real Housewives of Melbourne’s Instagram page.

‘Yeah right. Janet’s full of facts. I’m just not sure if she knows the difference between the truth and what comes out of her mouth….saying something doesn’t make it true,’ Kyla wrote.

Janet and Kyla’s drama has been the driving force behind the latest season of The Real Housewives of Melbourne.
