Lisa Rinna owns it and talks about it after she leaves The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The reality show star recently announced that she would not be returning for season 13 of the Bravo series after 8 seasons.
After leaving, Rinna reveals what she didn’t like about her last season on the show and doesn’t hold back.
“I fucking hated this year. For many reasons,” she told Interview Magazine. “My mother passed away, we all know that. But that’s not the main reason. The story just wasn’t told as two-sided as I would have liked. What do you think about it?”
Rinna refers to the moment when the RHOBH cast took a trip to Aspen and Kathy Hilton reportedly had a meltdown and made some crazy claims. According to Rinna, the moment was intense and she went into complete shock. Unfortunately the cameras were not available at the time and nothing was filmed and rumored.
“It was a pity there were no cameras in Aspen. It was something that happened so spontaneously. At the time, I didn’t think to turn on my voice memos,” she said. “When someone has a nuclear failure, you don’t think, ‘Oh, I should be filming this.’ That doesn’t cross your mind. If you’ve actually tried to bail someone out and get someone out of a club because they hurt themselves, you think, “What the hell am I supposed to do? Do I call the cops? I don’t know what to do .’ So yes, it was a pity that there were no cameras in this sprinter bus. Because we were done filming. We were going to stop.”
Hilton joined RHOBH in season 11 as a “friend” of the housewives, meaning she is only part-time. She quickly became a fan favorite for her quirkiness and unabashed personality. Fans weren’t too thrilled about Rinna coming after Hilton, and with no visual evidence, Rinna had a hard time with people taking her side. During BravoCon at a panel with the cast in October 2022, Rinna really felt the anger of fans as they booed her as she walked on stage. Hilton, on the other hand, was applauded and applauded with every performance she made all weekend.
Rinna feels like there was a “slander campaign going on online against” her, saying that “there was a person on the payroll who did that.” She added, “But here’s the thing. You should see the monster’s tail. She just showed her tail.
Despite the animosity between the two, Rinna said she was warm to Hilton during their performance at the People’s Choice Awards.
“Listen, Kathy Hilton is great. There are great things about Kathy Hilton. As her sister Kim told her, “Just don’t lose your temper during the show,” Rinna said.
