Heather Thomson has been criticizing The Real Housewives of New York City costar LuAnn de Lesseps' behavior during their "Scary Island Part 2" trip to Turks and Caicos. (They argued after the Countess brought a male guest back to the ladies' vacation home, startling Thomson when she woke up.)
"LuAnn is always painting someone else to be the villain because LuAnn takes no responsibility for her own behavior or her own actions," Thomson, 45, told PEOPLE Now.
But de Lesseps, 50, says if the rumor that Thomson isn't returning to the show next season is true, she'd miss the subject of her dance jam "Girl Code (Don't Be So Uncool)".
"Well, she broke the girl code!" de Lesseps told PEOPLE, laughing, Saturday at ex-Housewife Jill Zarin's annual Luxury Ladies Luncheon in Southhampton, New York, to benefit the Eric Trump Foundation, Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation and ITOG group.
"I think she wants to be more with her family, and she's got a huge business to run, so I get it!" she added of the Yummie shapewear designer. "This show takes up a lot of time and energy. It's a big job. And you know, I would be sorry to see her go. There is some sort of meeting of minds between us."
Here's hoping the Countess hits the studio to record a make-up ballad.
