Celebs Go Dating star Kerry has even decided to block the ex-EastEnders star.
She has been left reeling by the argument with Danniella, who checked into rehab earlier this month to finally end her drug addiction.
A source told The Sun Online: “Kerry was horrified when Danniella called her from rehab and started having a go at her.
“She was furious that Kerry had spoken about her on Loose Women and says she shouldn’t have said anything.

“Kerry was so upset as she’s always been very, very supportive of Danniella and has only ever said nice things about her.
“Kerry’s blocked Danniella on all social networks and block her number as Danniella’s son Kai called her too saying that she’d upset his mum.
“It’s just so awful as Kerry considered Danniella a friend and it’s all come out of nowhere.”
Danniella previously called Kerry her “inspiration” after turning to her for help with her daily drugs battle.

Former addict Kerry acted as a mentor to the actress who recently admitted she was struggling with her recovery.
She was sent to rehab for three months after an appearance on The Jeremy Kyle Show.
But Danniella hit the roof when she heard Kerry said she “wasn’t ready to get help” despite them working together on her recovery.

Kerry told Loose Women: “I love Danniella Westbrook I really do. I know she’s had a lot of problems.
“Being where Danniella has been – I will admit not to that extent – I do know I could see when someone genuinely wants the help or not ready to admit
“You can’t help someone who’s not ready to get help.”
“I was in that situation. Until I was ready to help myself, nobody could help me.”
“I’ll always be there for Danniella, she sent me a message last week. It’s not my story to tell.”
ITV The pair said they were in regular contact before their fallout
During the show Kerry was quizzed on how she copes with helping “needy” people.
She said: “I’m always there for advice. I love being on stage to tell my truth and put a bit of humour into it as well.
“When you’re dealing with people on a very close, one-to-one they can become very very needy.
“I know where we’re going with this.
“Sometimes that person doesn’t want that help because they’re not ready for it for themselves.
“I have had that situation where I’ve had to remove myself because I’ve still got my triggers and problems and have to think about my own mental health.”
The long-term friends have both suffered from addiction problems in the past and often turned to each other for support over the years.

Speaking about their friendship in the past, Danniella said: “We’ve both had such parallel lives, abusive relationships, drugs…
“It’s an every day struggle.
“To have a friend and a mentor in Kerry, I think it’s great.
“Women coming together to help each other, stop judging each other.
“I can ring Kerry and I know whatever I say to Kerry is not going anywhere else – because we both know what it’s like to be torn to shreds, and to be so alone and have to get up every day for our kids.”
Danniella’s PR tells The Sun Online that she denies the story and hasn’t fallen out with Kerry.
