‘RHOBH’ Star Kathryn Edwards: Does She See Lisa Vanderpump As A Manipulator?

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kathryn Edwards may be wrapping up her first and possibly last season of reality television. Even though Kathryn thought it would be fun to film a season of the show, she quickly learned that you need to have thick skin to deal with the drama on the program. Kathryn has already once deleted all of her social media accounts, because she couldn’t handle all of the negative feedback she received from viewers. But now, she’s setting the record straight about Lisa Vanderpump.

According to a new Bravo report, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kathryn Edwards has been a spectator to all of the drama between Lisa Rinna and Lisa Vanderpump this season. And Edwards believes that things have gone too far.

“I’m going to talk about my observations and what I see now looking back on it all, compared to what I was thinking when it was all going down. You have to keep in mind this was six months ago and seeing the confessional interviews every week changed some feelings for me,” Kathryn Edwards reveals in her blog, sharing that Lisa Rinna herself has revealed that she wants to move on from this drama.


“It was really sad watching friendships go down the drain over what amounts to nothing, in my opinion. It would be a true shame if they couldn’t talk it out and move past this…it shouldn’t have ever gotten to this silly, mind-numbing level,” Edwards adds. Of course, she’s referring to Vanderpump and Rinna. The two can’t seem to settle their differences.

But before joining the show, Kathryn was warned about Vanderpump. Many of her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-stars claimed that Lisa liked to create a web of lies, and Erika Girardi was quick to pick up on this. And Edwards did get her warnings about Vanderpump, but how does she feel about her co-star now that the season is over?

“I will say this…all season I was warned about Lisa V. being a manipulator, a sniper, getting someone to do her dirty work, not to be trusted. I was looking, I watched, I waited. I did see some manipulation going on, but it wasn’t coming from Lisa V,” Kathryn Edwards revealed about her co-star, sharing that she doesn’t see her co-star as the evil person that everyone is making her out to be. It sounds like Edwards could come to her friend’s defense during the reunion special.

“Maybe I’m not savvy enough to see her wily ways, maybe she’s The Manipulator Whisperer…you know, like the Cesar Millan of manipulation. You don’t know how Cesar gets these dogs to follow so easily, but he does it, and he’s just so good at it with so little effort. I’m being facetious right now if some of you don’t get it. My point is, again, that we are all responsible for our own actions. Period. There are leaders and there are followers…blame yourself if you screw up and get caught in the mire,” Edwards revealed in her blog, sharing that Lisa could just be too good for her.


Kathryn doesn’t explain who else she could see doing the manipulating if Lisa is not as guilty as everyone is saying she is. It is possible that she will talk about it on the reunion special and reveal her side of the story and come to Vanderpump’s defense.
