“@Garcelle, even though you unfollowed me I’m sure you’ll see this,” she wrote in the caption.
Jayne later explained to a fan on Twitter why she dumped the book, titled Love Me As I Am.
“Her Instagram post,” she wrote. “No need to use my name or very complicated legal and personal problems to sell her book. She has enough friends to help her.”
She added in another tweet:
Don’t use my name to promote your book. Use your famous friends https://t.co/OWHJFndYKy

Jayne was talking about a clip Beauvais posted on Instagram from the new season, in which she said, “Erika, I don’t have to make you look bad, you can do that on your own.”
Beauvais discussed her reasons for unfollowing her “RHOBH” co-star on “The Real” earlier this year.
“OK, all I can say is, she called me something that I did not like. And so therefore, when somebody offends you in a way, I don’t want to see her posts, I don’t want to put a little ‘like’. So, I thought, I’m going to unfollow her. I don’t want to see her posts,” she said. “Did I know it was going to cause World War III? Unfollowing someone is huge apparently, because it was breaking news all over the place.”
Beauvais added, “Friends were texting me going, ‘I can’t believe you, unfollowing her is such a big deal.’ But it is. I guess it’s a new way of saying, ‘I don’t like you, but I don’t want to tell you, so I’m just going to unfollow you.’ People were outraged! She was outraged too, I think. [Or maybe] she could care less.”
