Ella Rae Wise took an apparent swipe at Chloe Brockett on Monday evening while engaged in a Q&A with her Instagram followers.
The Only Way Is Essex cast-members have been kept apart following an ugly nightclub brawl in April, during which a bystander was left covered in blood after Chloe allegedly threw an ice bucket.
Show bosses are understood to be questioning her future on the long-running reality show as a consequence of the incident, but Ella, 21, appeared to be nonplussed while addressing fans.

After revealing she wanted to chat, the seemingly bored TV personality opened the floodgates for a wave of questions, including one from a follower who wanted to know ‘how she handled arguments so well.’
Responding to the query, she wrote: ‘Just ignore them, the best thing is silence. Their problem is with themselves and not you. Says more about them if they can’t leave you alone after you are staying silent.’
Chloe, 21, has been embroiled in controversy after throwing an ice-bucket at Ella while on a night out at The Perception Bar at W London Hotel, with the object missing her intending target and hitting the cousin of fellow cast member Rem Larue in the face.

A source told The Sun: ‘The police have been called by the young woman caught up in the incident. She was left badly shaken up and needed stitches to a wound on her head afterwards.
‘Her family, including her cousin who is one of Chloe’s former TOWIE co-stars Rem Larue, are supporting her. They want answers from Chloe and hope that TOWIE takes the issue seriously.’
It was also reported that stars of the hit ITVBe show are refusing to film upcoming scenes with Chloe following the nightclub brawl, while producers are ‘desperate’ to keep her onboard.

A source told The Sun: ‘TOWIE is desperate to keep Chloe on the show. She is one of the main cast members who actually brings storylines.
‘It’s fair to say the show just cannot afford to lose her. She’s such a fan favourite and brings so many stories when the other cast members are known to just take the pay cheque and not deliver
‘Chloe is old school TOWIE. She brings the drama and what’s going on in her life unfiltered onto the show. A lot of the others aren’t doing that. That’s created a real problem for everyone at TOWIE.’
