Joey Essex thinks Maria Fowler is "well bitchy".
I heard she's fallen out with Lauren Goodger too because she called her fat and said you wouldn't want to see her in a bikini, which is well bitchy.
The 'Only Way Is Essex' hunk has hit back at his former co-star - who was axed from the fourth series of the ITV2 reality show earlier this month - after she claimed he pretends to be stupid to get more air time on the programme.
He said in his column for Now magazine: "Maria Fowler's apparently said that I put on being stupid but she's just talking rubbish. She's just angry 'cos she's not on the show anymore.
"I heard she's fallen out with Lauren Goodger too because she called her fat and said you wouldn't want to see her in a bikini, which is well bitchy."
However, Joey and Lauren weren't the only 'TOWIE' stars to bear the brunt of Maria's rant, as she also claimed former cast member Amy Childs is "dead behind the eyes".
She recently said: "There was a lot of jealousy - we'd all started out as normal people then, within a few weeks, everyone had turned into monsters! It was all, 'My agent this, my agent that'."
"Amy became the biggest star and she knows it, but she's dead behind the eyes. She's very sweet, but will always tell you how busy she is and how amazing her management team are."
