Lisa Rinna dropped a bombshell during the latest episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and very few cast members escaped her barrage. Along with expressing her thoughts on Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards, Rinna blew the lid off her feelings towards Yolanda Foster. Did Rinna escalate things to the point of no return?
According to E! Online, Rinna’s emotional tirade started when she sat down with Eileen Davidson for a little heart-to-heart discussion. It didn’t take long for Rinna to open up to her friend, and she started by revealing her true thoughts about Vanderpump.
“I’ve kept quiet because I was hoping to protect a friendship. I do think that Lisa’s been manipulative, but I think a lot of people have been manipulative,” Rinna shared. “Both Lisa and Kyle talked plenty about Yolanda and whether she had Munchausen or whether she was faking it. And they sent pictures back and forth to each other, giggling. Absolutely.”
Rinna didn’t stop there. She went on to explain how it was Vanderpump who encouraged her to say that Foster had Munchausen. Apparently, Vanderpump had heard about Rinna’s thoughts on Foster’s illness and contacted her about it. Vanderpump then told Rinna that she should bring up the Munchausen issue during the show.
Apart from her comments on Vanderpump, Rinna attacked Foster for using her illness as a means to gain sympathy. In the end, Rinna accused Foster of being even more manipulative than Vanderpump and claimed that she is playing a larger game with everyone.
“You know what I think? I think there might be a bigger spiderweb, a bigger manipulation when it comes to Yolanda. She’s the only person on the planet that has gone to bed for 10 months. My gut feeling, as much as I want to love Yolanda and be her best friend, my gut says run for the f–king hills, lady,” Rinna stated. “She scares the s–t out of me because I think she’s more manipulative than anybody.”
For her part, Eileen listened intently to her friend’s frustrations, although she didn’t entirely agree with them off camera.
“To bring [Kyle and Lisa] into this? Wow. That’s inflammatory,” she stated.
According to People, Lisa Rinna views herself as a pawn unjustly played by Vanderpump and Foster. At this point, it isn’t clear if Rinna is sincere about her feelings towards her co-stars or if she is just trying to backtrack and cover her own actions. Whatever her reasoning, Rinna’s comments are not going to sit well with the other women on the show and will likely result in an even bigger conflict down the road.
Meanwhile, the Daily Mail is reporting that the latest episode also featured Erika Girardi hosting a dinner party in order to introduce her husband to everyone on the show. Despite her good intentions, things quickly deteriorated after Rinna and Girardi showed up in leopard-print clothing.
“I am usually the only one in leopard so maybe these girls are encroaching on my territory,” Rinna said.
Later, after Girardi and Kathryn Edwards got into an argument, Rinna attacked Kathryn for her aggressive display towards Girardi.
“Kathryn is talking a lot, and she is loud, and she is aggressive, I would like to level Kathryn at this point, tape would work too,” Rinna told the audience.
Clearly, Rinna is having her fair share of problems with her fellow cast members. At this point, there is no telling what they might do after they find out about Rinna’s latest round of gossiping. At least fans can expect plenty of drama to come as the series wraps up its current season.
