Eileen Davidson took aim at Lisa Vanderpump during a recent interview with The Daily Dish podcast.
According to a report from All About the Real Housewives on June 29, the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member felt that Vanderpump attempted to convince Lisa Rinna to go against her gut and make amends with Kim Richards — after their messy fight in Amsterdam — for the sake of the Bravo reality series.
In fact, according to Davidson, Vanderpump was “pressuring” Rinna to reunite with Richards, even though Rinna was highly upset with her co-star, who had suggested that she was dealing with a situation at home with her husband, Harry Hamlin, during an argument in front of the cast.
Davidson went on to say that when it came to the drama she believed Vanderpump was creating, a domino effect was started as Vanderpump allegedly attempted to control the way in which the storyline of RHOBH played out.
“I saw what was going on behind the scenes, and I went, ‘Okay, this doesn’t make any sense in terms of what really just happened,'” Davidson explained.
Looking back on the drama she experienced and witnessed with Vanderpump, Davidson said she suspected that Vanderpump behaved the way she did because she had been on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for so long and was likely doing her best to control the narrative of the show.
“She was also maybe trying to keep it interesting or thought that it should go a certain way — I really don’t know,” Davidson admitted.
As RHOBH fans will recall, Davidson was brought to the Bravo reality series for Season 5 after the exits of Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia. However, as The Inquisitr previously reported, she also told The Daily Dish podcast that she never thought she was a great fit for the show and left after Season 7.
In a separate report from Reality Blurb, Davidson admitted that she “wasn’t shocked” when Vanderpump confirmed last June that she was leaving the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after starring in a full-time position on the show for the past nine seasons.
She then said that Vanderpump has been accused of manipulating her cast mates on a number of occasions before, suggesting that the behavior wasn’t the best thing for the show.
“It has to evolve somewhere,” she explained of the series’ progression.
