The Veronicas’ Jess and Lisa Origliasso have lashed out at Channel Nine and the producers of Celebrity Apprentice.

The pop stars said Nine was only showing the ‘drama’ and not focusing on their achievements or efforts to raise money for their chosen charity.

‘Why are you not airing any of our wins and strategy for each task, only using the scripted drama you GAVE us as the only airtime / promo?’ Jess and Lisa tweeted from their joint account, which has more than 132,000 followers.

‘Where’s all the footage where we pull through for our team/and for our charity? Why is all of that being edited out?’ they added.

Nine declined to comment when contacted by Daily Mail Australia; however, the network confirmed The Veronicas will get more airtime in future episodes.

But others questioned the duo’s expectations when they signed up for a reality show.

‘TBH this was to be expected, it’s reality TV after all,’ one Twitter user remarked. ‘Are you guys surprised? All TV shows are like this,’ another added.

During Sunday’s season premiere of Celebrity Apprentice, tensions ran high as Jess and Lisa had a sisterly spat during a piece to camera.

Jess was discussing professional surfer and Instagram star Alex Hayes, explaining he had chosen to invite a friend over to help him during an art challenge.

Lisa whispered to Jess, suggesting she re-word her statement that Alex was ‘just doing his own thing’.

‘Can you just say it, please? My patience is getting thin, so if you know what needs to be said, please say it,’ Jess snapped.

‘It’s not important that I say this,’ she added angrily.

‘Okay. I’m just letting you know something. You’re being a bit much,’ Lisa shot back.  

‘I’m irritated!’ an exasperated Jess answered, waving her hands around and making aggressive gestures.

‘All I need is for you to say it rather than tell me how to say it. Do you understand?’ she demanded. 

Later in the episode, the sisters mended fences and worked hard on creating a hand-painted guitar for charity, and performing at the auction.

The instrument was one of the hits of the night, and sold for a whopping $60,000.
