Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix clapped back at a troll who came for her hosting Love Island USA.

The hater took aim at Ariana hot on the heels of the Vanderpump Rules Season 11 finale that left fans divided and confused.

It’s been a busy week for Ariana as her career keeps soaring following Scandoval.

Along with the Vandeprump Rules finale, news Ariana will be back on the small screen in a new role dropped.

As Monsters and Critics previously reported, Peacock spilled some Love Island USA Season 6 news that included a teaser with Ariana as the host.

The blonde bombshell will take over hosting duties from Sarah Hyland, but that’s not the person one hater was comparing her to.

One critic, though, isn’t thrilled with the news and told Ariana so with a dig.

“You are no Maya,” shared the critic.

Maya Jama hosts the UK version of Love Island. The troll caught Ariana’s attention and she said her peace by giving Maya praise and shutting down the hater.

“that’s obvious, dear. i could never be nor am i trying to be the queen that is maya jama. and guess what? it would be weird if i did. i am me and i am going to bring my best self to my dream hosting job doing what i do best: BE MYSELF. have a good day.” Ariana declared.
