On The Real Housewives of New York Season 5, Episode 6: "I'm UK, You're UK" tension started brewing between LuAnn de Lesseps and Carole Radziwill. Based on the preview for Season 5, Episode 7: “Good Trip, Bad Fall,” it looks like that tension will come to a head next week, with Carole getting totally sick of LuAnn's constant game of one-upmanship.

But is that a game LuAnn is actually playing? Not if you ask her! In her BravoTV.com blog, LuAnn says she "was surprised to hear that Carole thought I was trying to one-up her on this trip."

Apparently she wasn't attempting to outshine her co-star at all. Instead, "I was just trying to find similarities and topics that are interesting to both of us. Isn't that the way conversation works, one person says something and the other person shares their thoughts as well?"

What do you think? Was LuAnn just trying to bond, or was she making the conversation all about her?

The Real Housewives of New York airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
