Sunday night's episode of My Kitchen Rules saw Melbourne mums Kim and Suong in the kitchen, but it was outside at their instant restaurant where things really heated up.
Sydney sisters Jess and Emma clashed with friends Roula and Rachael after an argument ended with Emma calling Rachael a 'little cow'.
On Monday night's episode of MKR it was clear that there was still tension when all the groups gathered for Matty and Ash's beach-themed restaurant.
Roula made the first move, suggesting that Emma may have owed her teammate an apology.
"I'm not sure if I called you a cow or if I said you were being a cow... anyway I'm sorry," Emma said to Rachael.
But Roula wasn't happy with it, telling the camera, "That wasn't a real apology," with Rachael calling it "pathetic".
But Emma is adamant that the apology was genuine.
“My apology is not based on her being a little cow, because I still think she was being a little cow, but my apology was I didn't want her to be hurt and upset," she told WHO.
Emma went on to explain, "I don't apologise for what I said because she was the antagoniser in the situation and I truly do feel like she's overstepped the mark. But I apologise for hurting her feelings".
Emma's younger sister Jess backed her up, telling WHO "she genuinely meant it."
The mum-of-one continued, "She was apologising because she upset Rachael. We're not nasty bullies, and we'd never want anybody to lose any sleep."
