Maura, flaunting a stunning gown that showcased her stunning physique, voiced her thoughts on Instagram, sharing a screenshot of a news article about the alleged altercation with Faye.

In her caption, she quipped, "Borrrringgg!!!! Can't have a passionate conversation without people videoing and press trying to turn women against one another….ILY@faye_winter mo drama here love."

The video in question depicted Maura and Faye engaging in an exchange, during which Maura reportedly exclaimed: "Don't you point your finger at me!"

However, eager to demonstrate solidarity, 28-year-old Faye also responded to the allegations in the comments section, humorously stating: "I mean, she calls me a silly cow most days, and she ain't wrong. And I can confirm no designer shoes were disrespected in the conversation."

According to The Sun, a friend of the pair stepped in to mediate as they overheard them quarreling, saying: "Girls, girls. Why are you fighting? This has been going on for an hour now. Stop it, stop it."

The dispute reportedly unfolded at the bar in a backstage area of the awards ceremony.

An eyewitness recounted: "Maura looked furious with Faye – the pair were arguing quite loudly and in front of a lot of people. It was quite embarrassing, and they were at it for ages."
