Attempts to reach James for comment have been unsuccessful.

Under one recent post, a fan told Noella "Don't make the same mistake as Erika Jayne by owing millions while flaunting wealth on social. She's going to get slammed - don't let it happen to you."

In the weeks since Radar broke the news, Noella has stayed silent about the situation but instead ripped her former friend Braunwyn Windham-Burke on social media.

After one follower asked Noella if she was still friends with Braunwyn. She revealed, "It was a great friendship till it wasn't. I've wanted to call her so many times since our bad breakup but without trust you have nothing. Wishing you and yours well."

The two had been inseparable for months until producers decided to fire Braunwyn and replace her with Noella. She will be joining Shannon Beador, Emily Simpson, Heather Dubrow, and Gina Kirschenheiter
