During a cast trip to the Caribbean, Lichy was determined to get Hassan back after she unexpectedly grabbed her, making her fall in the resort’s private pool. Lichy secretly took Hassan’s phone for 45 minutes, upsetting the model. The following morning, Lichy expressed frustration when she overheard Hassan saying her name because her castmates were waiting for her to go to their next destination. The real estate agent told her “to stop saying [her] name when [she is not] around.” Hassan responded by stating she “did not say [Lichy’s] name,” and proceeded to remove her sunglasses. Hassan also repeatedly stated that she was unhappy with Lichy’s decision to keep her phone.
Reality Blurb reported that Hassan commented on how she acted toward Lichy in a series of September 18 Instagram Stories. The reality television star replied to a fan who inquired, “Why are you such a hot head about your phone? [You’re] the one who left it in the car in the first place.” Hassan initially quipped, “Well, you know us redheads always bringing the heat!” She proceeded to reveal the reason she was upset with Lichy and encouraged viewers to tune into the show’s upcoming reunion, which was filmed in September 2023.
“The phone was the seed of it all,” responded Hassan. “But she [screams] at me and told me not to mention her f***** name, even though I was [quiet] the whole day and didn’t talk to her about my phone to her the whole day. Then, she proceeded to lie about something (watch the reunion).”

“We’re in the same house and I think I mentioned her name or something, and she said, ‘Don’t mention my name,’ and I said, ‘Oh, you are here?’ And she’s like, ‘Yeah, don’t ever mention my name again,’ and I was like, ‘Oh no, this is not going to work,’” explained the 40-year-old. “’This is not going to work. You don’t talk to me like that.’ And, yeah, then I just saw black for, like, nine hours. It was so long. It was so long. It was so long. It was so f***** long. I didn’t know how to shut up.”
The RHONY personality went on to say that she has difficulty masking her feelings when she is upset.

The Bravo star also clarified that she is currently friendly with Lichy.
“I love Erin, we’re friends, we made up. I don’t hold grudges,” shared Hassan.
