‘RHOBH’: Cheri Oteri From ‘SNL’ Thinks Lisa Rinna Is a Little Too Obsessed With Money

Saturday Night Live alum and Bravo superfan Cheri Oteri observed that Lisa Rinna from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is seriously hung up on wealth.

Oteri appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. She shared during the After Show that Rinna gushed a little too much about how friend Sutton Stracke is so rich.

Stracke takes Rinna to a fitting at Domenico Dolce’s enormous Manhattan apartment. In a confessional Rinna does not hold back. “What does it say about Sutton that Dolce & Gabbana make a one of a kind piece for her? It says that she’s rich, honey! She’s-a-rich!” Oteri caught the moment and also noticed the way Rinna played the whole outfit reveal too.

Rinna is way too excited about money

Oteri remarked, “[Rinna’s] obsession with wealth was a little nauseating.” She recalled when Stracke took Rinna along when she tried on her custom couture Dolce & Gabbana outfit. Oteri had a pretty strong reaction to the custom outfit designed for Stracke. She says the scene at Dolce’s home was the most striking moment from the first episode for her.

“Lisa Rinna, she couldn’t even lie, she goes, ‘Oh is that a Dolce & Gabbana bra you have on?’ As if, trying to deflect from the outfit. And it just made me laugh because it’s like, ‘No, no no, this is from JCPenney. The rest is all Dolce & Gabbana.'”

“And then Lisa Rinna is saying,’ Well if you’re that rich, you can pretty much wear anything you want,'” Oteri continued.

Rinna has always been upfront that she’s a hustler

From the minute Rinna joined RHOBH, she’s made it clear that she hustles to make a buck. She recently told Variety she was concerned about how the pandemic will impact her ability to keep her businesses afloat. “Hopefully, [my businesses] will continue, and we’ll be able to make money and survive. I mean, that’s the scariest part is how do we keep it all going?”

Although Rinna joked about becoming the spokesperson for Depend, she said the commercials ended up being her highest paying gig. “I’ll pretty much do anything,” she said on RHOBH, Radar Online recounts. “That Depends job saved our bacon. I got paid more money to do that than I got paid to do anything ever in my life and I was just like winking all the way to the bank.” Adding, “I’ll do anything to make a buck.”

Interestingly, Rinna’s net worth may be higher than Stracke’s. Stracke’s net worth is a reported $2 million, whereas Rinna’s net worth is reportedly $8 million. Rinna may have built a considerable amount of wealth from RHOBH (in addition to those Depend commercials). She was paid $450,000 for her first season of the show. She became a cast member in season five after being a “guest” in season four.

But during the first episode, Rinna couldn’t help gushing about Stracke’s wealth. “Sutton’s ex-husband’s into hedge funds, who knows, like money stuff,” she said in a confessional. “When they divorced Sutton had no idea she’d be set for life. Because there are homes, private jets and I think there’s a baseball team. Or two. Or more. I don’t know. She has a lot of f**king money.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesday at 8/7c on Bravo.
