‘RHOBH’: Lisa Rinna Calls Out Garcelle Beauvais for Shady Comment Invoking Daughter’s Eating Disorder
Lisa Rinna and Garcelle Beauvais from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are continuing to feud on social media. Both stars unfollowed each other after the season 10 reunion and things are not getting better between them. Rinna recently took to Instagram to call out Beauvais for a shady comment she made invoking her daughter’s eating disorder.
What did Garcelle Beauvais say?
On RHOBH Season 5, Episode 13, the ladies are in Rome, Italy for their annual girls trip. As they are having dinner, Kyle Richards asked Rinna what her mom thought about her sensual Instagram videos.
“I do a lot of stuff on Instagram because Lois watches Instagram. So she sees everything,” Rinna said. “She has an iPad. Even though I know I’m being ridiculous, I always know that she gets to see everything and the girls. I think it really is great for her.”
Although Beauvais didn’t say anything at the table, she did have a lot to say in her confessional.
“I love that Lisa’s free enough to do the videos and be dancing, but dancing nearly naked is not a choice for me if I had a daughter that had body issues,” the Coming To America actress said.
Lisa Rinna reacts to the shade
Rinna didn’t respond directly to Beauvais, but she did share tweets she found on social media that supported her.
“I love Garcelle but her comments [about] Lisa Rinna’s IG and daughter’s eating disorder felt nasty,” read one of the tweets. “That’s mom shaming at its worst. We are already so hard on ourselves. I felt bad for any parent watching whose had to live [through] the hell of a child’s eating disorder.”
“Exactly, the only person that comment hurt was Amelia [Gray Hamlin],” the second tweet read. “If Garcelle wants to take a dig at Rinna, it’s fair game. But using the eating disorder to make the dig was a low blow. [In my opinion] it’s so brave of Amelia to be public [about] her anxiety and other mental health struggles at that age.”
Amelia Gray Hamlin forced to be on a reality show?
Rinna’s daughter recently made the news when she claimed that she was forced by her mother to be on RHOBH. Gray Hamlin was reacting to a post on social media that claimed she opened up about her eating disorders only to be featured on TV.
“I usually don’t post these but this really got to me,” Gray Hamlin posted on Instagram Stories. “Lying about a mental illness is disgusting, something I hope nobody would ever do. I seriously can’t believe I’m being accused of lying about my anorexia to get more ‘air time.’”
“Sorry, but I’m forced to be on the Housewives by my mom,” she added. “Ask anyone, it’s the last thing I want to do. I couldn’t care less about air time. So f**k you.”
After the messages were shared across social media and Rinna was crucified for “forcing” her daughter to be on TV, Gray Hamlin clarified her statement.
“Like, would you wanna be on national television at 12?” she posted on her first story.
In a second post, she added: “I just literally said no to something I did not know anything about. My mom ENCOURAGED ME to do so. Obviously it’s been 6 years, I could have stopped filming long ago. Can you all just chill?”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs every Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
