Queen of Paradise… or just petty? Bachelor veteran Keira Maguire showed her true colours this week by lashing out at an Instagram fan account and leaving salty comments on a gossip site
Keira clashed with Alisha, 27, during a fiery Bula Banquet fight that left several of their co-stars shocked and disappointed.
The two women had previously clashed on Instagram over Stories and comments Keira had posted criticising Alisha while on the 2019 season.
Those issues were again raised at Sunday’s dinner party, and although Alisha was in tears, Keira dug in her heels and accused Alisha’s friends of ganging up on her.
Issues: Alisha told Keira she was upset because she had ‘popped up a few stories during our last season of Bachelor In Paradise’ on Instagram. ‘Babe, you literally were like… You were doing cruel, nasty commentary,’ she said
Off camera, Keira added: ‘I wish Alisha wasn’t here. I don’t know, it just annoys me so much having people question my integrity. Right now everyone’s looking at her, going, “Oh, she’s crying”. And then there’s Keira, “Oh, she’s a b***h.” But, like, I’m used to it. Whatever’
Keira broke her silence on the feud in an interview with Nova 96.9’s Fitzy & Wippa on Monday, claiming she ‘walked into a trap’ and was not responsible for the drama.
However, online publication Pedestrian.TV published her comments with a sarcastic headline insinuating they didn’t quite believe Keira.
They wrote ‘Sure: Keira denies starting last night’s BIP drama’, while encouraging their fans to click the ‘link in bio’ to decide for themselves.

‘It was positioned to be my reaction’: Keira’s since-deleted comments claimed the feud was ‘positioned and calculated to get a reaction’
Keira took aim at the article, writing: ‘It’s actually laughable that you think that the whole situation wasn’t positioned and calculated to get a reaction out of me.
‘Actually it wasn’t straight after that’s just what you saw. Any ways I’m not saying the way I reacted was OK. I’m saying it was positioned to be my reaction.’
The reality TV star’s comments were later deleted from the thread.
Keira also had direct messaged the popular meme account, BachieFunny, about a post that detailed her feud with Alisha, writing: ‘You’re pathetic, get a life.’

There are now 16 stars left seeking love on the Fiji-based spin-off.
