Lisa Rinna

Lisa Rinna made some bold statements following the poker game disaster on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Lisa called Brandi Glanville a drunk, adding, “Brandi needs to put herself into rehab. There’s alcoholism raging like crazy. Women do not behave like that unless they are inebriated or something else is going on.” Finally someone who speaks the truth!

Lisa feels strongly about who is responsible for the drama – and it is not Kyle Richards. “I’d like to note that Kyle wasn’t the one to create any of this drama. It was Kim [Richards] that chose to walk back in the house after Brandi had escorted her outside and told her NOT to go back in. There was a lot of alcohol and God knows what other drugs influencing a lot of the behaviors, so no matter what, the outcome wasn’t going to be a good one. While I have compassion and empathy for these women and what I see playing out in front of me, there seems to be a lot of blame that both Kim and Brandi are trying to place on Kyle, and in my opinion they aren’t accepting the consequences from their behavior.” Brandi will never admit blame. For anything.

Lisa called out Kim‘s nonsensical story. Like, if she was so sick with bronchitis, why was she puffing on a cigar all night? What I want to know is, why didn’t we hear Kim cough during the poker game? 

“Now that some time has passed and I have really had some time to digest the situation, I myself have some questions just like all of you. Why did Kim go to Eileen [Davidson]’s poker night if she was sick with pneumonia and bronchitis? I don’t doubt that major illnesses like these made her feel terrible. So, then why go in the first place and then exacerbate these illnesses by smoking cigars all evening? I’m quite certain that had I been as ill as she was, I would have been in my bed pickling myself in oil of oregano and overdosing on vitamin C and echinacea. But again, just as I didn’t know where she was in her sobriety, I also didn’t know where she was in her illnesses.”

“As far as Brandi goes, my comments are coming from a place of experience and concern. I’ve been, like I know many many of you have also, a part of lives that have been affected by addiction. And to echo Yolanda’s sentiments, I have a hard time wrapping my brain around the idea of grown women, mothers in particular, behaving this way,” bemoaned Lisa. “To me, there seems to be a lot of pain being masked by alcohol. Granted, I don’t know what goes on in Brandi’s life outside of this. I only know what I observe in this environment.”

Moving on to her jewelry party, Lisa shared, “I’m just so happy that the darn Stella & Dot party was successful. Hallelujah! Holly Robinson Peete had done a similar party that had an amazing turnout, and I was beyond thrilled to host my own. The Noreen Fraser Foundation’s mission ‘to find a way to live with cancer and not die from it’ is very close to my heart. Both my mother and sister are recent breast cancer survivors with double mastectomies, so it was important to me that the party be a successful one.”

Lisa went on to say she appreciated her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-stars for supporting the fundraiser and leaving the drunken drama <cough, Brandi, cough> at home that particular day. 

“It meant so much to me that everyone, with the exception of Kim being in the hospital, showed up despite what had recently gone down. By the grace of God, everyone kept their composure, bought a ton of jewelry, and appeared to have a good time. Big thanks to Stella & Dot for helping to raise so much money and to Gourmet 47 and Hourie for catering the amazing food,” gushed Lisa. “Giant kudos to Eileen for speaking her mind with Brandi at my house. She always knows how to remain classy and sophisticated even in the most uncomfortable of situations. I admire her deeply for that.”
