Fox News’ Andrea Tantaros called MSNBC rival Mika Brzezinski “the nastiest woman on the Upper East Side” after saying the “Morning Joe” co-host pretended not to recognize her at a charity function.

In her book “Tied Up in Knots,” Tantaros dishes on the encounter in a chapter titled “Twisted Sisters.”

“Anytime estrogen is involved, there is bound to be drama,” she writes to open the chapter, before going on to share the dramatic details.

Tantaros said she went up to the MSNBC host to say hello, as Brzezinski has previously interviewed her, but received a “less than thrilled” reception.

“I’m Andrea Tantaros,” she writes. “You used to interview me on MSNBC from time to time. I’m on ‘The Five’ now.”

“She furrowed her brow as if trying to search for recognition,” Tantaros says of Brzezinski’s reaction to her, adding that after an awkward moment of silence, she decided to move on.

“Wait, what’s your name?” Brzezinski asked, followed by, “And what show are you on?”

Tantaros noted that “The Five” was the second highest rated show in all of cable news at the time, which means it would be almost impossible to believe that Brzezinski had not heard of the show.

She repeated herself to Brzezinski, emphasizing Fox News for clarity, writing that Brzezinski responded by saying, “Ohhhh . . . You work at Fox because you’re preeeettty.”

“No. I work at Fox because I’m smart,” Tantaros fired back, before the two went their separate ways.

Tantaros goes on to remind readers she didn’t “have dad’s coattails to ride” — the MSNBC co-host’s father is Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was President Jimmy Carter’s national security adviser.
