The new season of Real Housewives of Orange County hasn't even aired yet, but the drama is already brewing!

When you throw new cast members into the mix, the claws are bound to come out — and has exclusively learned that's exactly what is transpiring between veteran star Tamra Barney and newbie Danielle Gregorio.

"Danielle signed on for this show knowing full well that she'd have to bring drama and make waves with the ladies in order to stay relevant," an insider told

"And it's not going over well with the women who have been on the show for years. Tamra is really annoyed by everything Danielle does at this point and just feels like she sees right through her."

But it was while the ladies were filming in Bali and Hong Kong that Gregorio really hit a nerve with Barney, sources say.

As previously reported, the new ladies “are fitting in perfectly because they love to fight as much as the other women.”

"Tamra believes that Danielle is a fame whore," the source continued.

"The trip overseas was already the breaking point for them. Tamra and Danielle are no longer following each other on Twitter or Instagram."

In fact, Tamra posted this telling photo and caption on Wednesday night:

Gregorio is good friends with co-star Heather Dubrow, who campaigned for her pal to get on the show, which only brings more controversy to the OC because Barney and Dubrow are also great pals.

"Danielle wants to be famous and is willing to go to great lengths to accomplish that. She said she is going to create sh*t to make the drama for the show," the insider previously told

“She even plans on bringing her dad on the show for a paternity test, which makes no sense really because there’s no question about whether he’s her father or not. It’s just all a ploy to make drama and make herself a central character on the show. She doesn’t even care if she’s loved or hated.”
