Lystra Adams has opened up on her friendship with Nicole Sealey after they ran into a bit of trouble on the Real Housewives of Cheshire.
In a recent episode of the fan-favourite show, Lystra was left upset after her 46 year old co-star "threw" her jacket on the floor at an event, leading to her demanding she "apologise to me and my coat".
Raven-haired beauty Lystra, who recently celebrated her 44th birthday with a carousel horse and sushi, has now spoken out about the incident exclusively with OK! Online.
"At this point, that coat need to be insured. That coat's got a life of it's own," she laughed, before moving onto a serious note: "They apologised to me and my coat. I was like, 'Listen, you're going to apologise to me and my coat,' because I really felt disrespected. I'm not going to lie to you."
The reality star continued: "I'm always going to be myself on there. The minute I start not to be myself is the minute I'm going to leave. I'm going on there and I'm going to be me, Lystra, this is who I am."
Lystra, who is from Guyana and is mum to 19 year old daughter Jasmine, went on to explain that she grew up "very poor" and now cherishes all her belongings.
She went on: "For me, I think it was just very upsetting. I'm from a very poor background and I some things I have now and some things I've spent thousands on I cherish. I feel very passionate about it…
"When you come somewhere and you've never had it, you know I've only had one or two pairs of shoes, so what I have now, I don't go around thinking, 'Okay so you can step on my toes and break my heels'.
"I'm going to cherish these things because I never had it. I felt disrespected that you just picked up my stuff and you just threw it up in the air for it to land on the ground. I felt like that is so wrong and that's how it came out."
The entrepreneur, who recently said there are "people she doesn't vibe with" on the programme, continued by explaining that a lot of what happens on the show is edited out and said she and Nicole had "many talks" that day.

Lystra said: "With that situation, there was more to it. There was hours of filming. Of course, we gotta have things cut down to make it – if everybody got on it would be a boring show. You have to have a bit of…
"So it wasn't just me walking into the room and going, 'You apologise to me and my coat' and just walk out. There was more to that situation that wasn't shown."

Despite this, Lystra is open to putting it all in the past as she added: "But I'm sure we'll be able to move past it. I'm sure in time, I don't ever force friendships, that's not me.
"I'm sure me and her will come to a point where the next sit down might be okay. But I'm not going to be like the one going, 'Oh my god, I need to be your best friend.'"
