Eileen Davidson admits she was shocked when Lisa Rinna finally confided the truth to her on this week’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. But she stands by her belief that her ally never “lied” about the truth – she simply didn’t remember
until producers showed her the tape. Now that she has come clean with Kim Richards about her comments that Kim was not totally sober and was potentially near death, Eileen thinks Rinna deserves a break.
Eileen jokes, “It was a week of caviar, cheesecake and coming clean!” Before breaking down Rinna’s confession in her blog, she takes a moment to gush about Erika Girardi’s acting skills. “Erika continues to prove her acting chops. I’ve seen her read a few times now, and she always crushes it. Vinny joked that he wanted to manage Erika…not so fast, Vin! I discovered her first!”

Eileen also praises Lisa Vanderpump for her work in putting an end to the Yulin Dog Meat Festival. “The Yulin Dog Meat festival is utterly horrific. I felt like Ken did while watching. How can you not be overcome with emotions when seeing such cruelty? I commend LVP, Ken, and everyone working to stop this barbaric practice against innocent animals.” Wow! Eileen complemented LVP?! Is this progress?
“Now onto the main event…,” continues Eileen, “I was thrown for a loop when Lisa R. came clean to me. As I’d said to Kyle [Richards], it seemed out of character for those words to come from Lisa R. Lisa R. explained about the deaths in her family and ‘getting that phone call,’ and reminded me of what Kyle had said about Kim. I understood more why she’d overreacted in that way. If anyone empathizes with the loss of family leaving a toll, it’s me. There’s a lot of past pain—and not just from the past with Lisa R. and Kim—at play here.”
Calling Rinna out for making comments about Kim in the first place, Eileen writes, “This doesn’t change the fact that what Lisa R. said was wrong. Game Night was difficult, but no one was questioning Kim’s sobriety.”
Right or wrong, Eileen thinks it was pretty damn brave of Rinna to face the music in front of the entire group at Kyle’s house. And I can’t say I disagree. That sh*t was Witches Of Eastwick meets Fight Club meets middle school girls’ bathroom!
“I still do not agree that Lisa R. lied,” blogs Eileen. “She spoke to Harry [Hamlin] and Eden [Sassoon] and realized what she had done. That very day, she did ‘own it.’ It wasn’t a private conversation either. She had the opportunity to approach Kim and Kyle alone, but instead, she fell on her sword in front of everyone. That took a lot of courage. And she took a lot of heat.”
So, will everything be hunky dory now? Not if Kim’s recent blogging has any say in the matter. Yet, Eileen remains naively hopeful. She writes, “This is major progress. And even though it didn’t look like it in the beginning, I think the two of them are truly ready to put this to bed, once and for all. Thank god for Carnie’s cheesecakes and words of wisdom!”
