‘RHOBH’: Lisa Vanderpump Reacts to Lisa Rinna’s Shade for Clapping Back at Kyle Richards
Lisa Rinna never misses an opportunity to stir the pot on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The reality star is very vocal on the show and is not afraid to speak her mind. What viewers see on the Bravo series, they also get on social media and the former soap star recently took a dig at Lisa Vanderpump. We now know what the restauranteur thinks of Rinna’s shade thanks to a close source.
What did Lisa Rinna say?
During Vanderpump’s last season on RHOBH, the star felt the rest of the cast ganged up on her. The “Puppy-gate” incident got out of control and Vanderpump was right in the middle of controversy. At the time, the Vanderpump Rules creator was going through an emotional time after a death in her family.
When Kyle Richards, and other co-stars, confronted her, Vanderpump wasn’t in the mood to put up a fight. The Housewives believed she was the one tipping the media about the adopted puppy drama Dorit Kemsley got from Vanderpump Dogs. The self-proclaimed queen was so upset such allegations were raised that she stopped filming the show with the ladies.
A year later, Richards has found herself in a situation where she feels the girls are ganging up on her. As she was live-tweeting a recent episode, she expressed her thoughts that no one had her back.
“Trying to think of one time anyone defended me. Like maybe now would be a good time Rinna,” Richards tweeted.
A fan reminded her how Vanderpump felt the season before when “she was mourning and going through a difficult time,” and the businesswoman chimed in adding, “True dat.”
When Instagram account Comments by Bravo shared the exchange, Rinna added her own comment shading Vanderpump.
“Someone misses being on a hit TV show,” Rinna wrote.
How did Lisa Vanderpump react?
Rinna was provoking a response from Vanderpump but she didn’t meddle in the drama. However, a close source to the animal activist has shared that she did see the exchange.
“Lisa Vanderpump was not at all surprised to see Lisa Rinna diss her on social media,” an insider told Hollywood Life. “She expects nothing less than an opportunity for Rinna to take a dig at her. The two women cannot stand one another. Even if they were in the same room, they’d ignore the other.”
Vanderpump and Rinna had a rocky relationship while they shared the screentime for 5 seasons. Although Vanderpump never misses an opportunity to take a dig using her brilliant “British humour,” it seems like this time she will let it go.
“Vanderpump hasn’t decided yet if she will respond to Rinna, but she’s leaning more towards letting it die now than replying,” the source added. “She definitely has thought about it though. Rinna gets under her skin more than any of the other ladies even if she doesn’t want to admit it.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
