Kim Richards and Lisa Rinna will face off on tonight’s new episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, reportedly over claims made by Richards regarding Rinna’s husband.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, the sneak peek at the upcoming episode doesn’t reveal what the two were fighting about. However, because of a previous report, which claimed Kim Richards accused Harry Hamlin of cheating, many have been led to believe that Kim Richards’ cheating claims were what started the fight.
Last year, a source revealed the following to Radar Online:
“Upon hearing the claim, Lisa went nuts, and immediately lunged at Kim. There are certain things that are just off limits as far as Lisa is concerned, and Harry is on that list. Kim didn’t think Lisa would have such a violent reaction, and it really shook her up.”
In an interview with People Magazine on March 2, Rinna opened up about her on-screen drama with Kim Richards, confirming she had said something horrible about herself and Hamlin.
“If you poke a hornet’s nest, you are going to get stung. I am fiercely protective of my family.”
As for how she responded to Kim Richards’ allegations, whatever they were regarding, Rinna claimed both she and Hamlin addressed the claims in an unexpected manner.
“Our response isn’t what you might expect. All I can say is our response will surprise people.”
Kim Richards has been feuding with Rinna since earlier this season on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It all started when Rinna asked Kim Richards if she had been drinking during the car ride to Eileen Davidson’s poker party. Although Richards hadn’t been drinking, she did later admit to taking a pain killer to help her back.
As Rinna revealed on the show, she has lost several people close to her to addiction, including two of her husband’s brothers, so seeing Richards acting the way she did was cause for concern.
Then, once Rinna heard Kim Richards had taken a pain pill, she was even more concerned. Because any addict knows taking pills, narcotics especially, could lead to relapse, most would never even consider doing so. Richards, however, didn’t feel it was a bad idea until after she had done it.
Still, Kim Richards claims she’s sober and has been for years.
