Lisa Rinna

Lisa Rinna summed up this week’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills perfectly: The top of this week’s episode starts off so fun but quickly dive rolls into a frenzy of accusations, hurt feelings, and drama.” As per usual, the accusations and drama came to us via Kim Richards and Brandi Glanville.

“The Fantastic Race was fun. Sort of. The idea of a scavenger hunt with teams was great and intentions were in the right place, but you let some Housewives run loose on a hot day in the streets of Beverly Hills with specific rules to follow, and sh-t is bound to hit the fan,” Lisa said about Yolanda Foster‘s scavenger hunt. “Complaints ran amok, rules were broken, a lot of dairy was consumed, and tour buses were hijacked. But what can I say other than I was more than happy and willing to support Yolanda. Congratulations to Eileen Davidson for holding her team together and pulling off the win.” No. Easy. Feat. with Kim


On the way to Calgary, Lisa noticed Kim was more “quiet” and “uneasy” than usual, so Lisa asked Kim if she was upset with her. “She was told that I had been talking to numerous people about her sobriety, or rather, lack of sobriety. She wanted me to back off and stop talking behind her back, but here’s the thing you guys: I had just had a conversation to her face in Eileen’s kitchen. I looked into her eyes and flat out said, ‘You can get help. You can talk to people. You can go to a meeting and find a group, so you are not alone.’ Lisa Vanderpump was also right there during this conversation, offering her own support, to which Kim literally responded with, ‘Blah, blah, blah.'”

Lisa continued, “As we have seen before, Kim tends to conveniently forget key events and things that are said in her presence, so maybe I should have seen her response of ‘blah, blah, blah’ as ‘I am literally and physically not listening to any of this.’ Who knows. But what I do know is that particular conversation cannot be twisted into me talking behind her back. When I speak with someone about someone else, I absolutely HAVE TO then speak to the person I have just spoken about. That is what a friend does. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and I happen to really like firemen, so I will go straight to that source every time. HaHa!”

Lisa could not believe Kim‘s childish behavior on the plane. Really? And here I found that to be the second most believable scene of the episode. There is something really “twilight zone” about Kim. The first most believable scene, to me, was Yolanda Foster being so passive aggressive over a damn chocolate milkshake. I suppose the ice cream shop didn’t have lemon flavor? 

“The tense conversation between Kim and I on the plane, though, was just too much,” said Lisa. “She chose to speak to me as if I were a child and yelled at me each time I apologized to her. I don’t know how many times I apologized, and she decided to snub and fire back an icy, ‘Just drop it!’ or ‘Leave it alone!’ instead of carrying on a normal conversation where both people can speak like mature grown ups.”

“Of course, the bug in Kim’s ear is Brandi, Queen of Deflection,” noted Lisa. “The reason I sat down for lunch with her was for me to ask why SHE is so aggressive and why SHE says the hurtful things she does and why SHE thinks it’s ok to act like a three-year-old. I wanted to have a face-to-face, open and honest conversation with her about what makes her tick the way she does, so I could form my own opinions outside of what the other women have told me.”

Lisa pointed out, if anyone in this situation is a bad friend to Kim, it’s Brandi. “As I can now see in hindsight, Brandi steered our lunch conversation to be about Kim, so we didn’t have to talk about why Brandi is the way she is. I would have liked to see Brandi be honest with Kim about her concerns she shared with me that day, but from what I can tell, Brandi seems scared of Kim and basically just tossed the whole messy situation on me. If anything, I would say we’re actually witnessing Brandi talk behind Kim’s back, since she didn’t share any of her parts of the conversation. Very irresponsible and definitely not what I would call a good friend.”

“We get to Calgary, and I can honestly say that the David Foster Foundation Gala was one of the best and most impressive events I have ever attended. Babyface, Jennifer Hudson, Jackie Evancho, and the list of amazing performances goes on and on!” shared Lisa. “Raising $8.2 million dollars is unbelievable, and knowing that money goes towards children needing organ transplants and taking care of the family’s needs during that time is incredibly heartwarming. The amazing people of Calgary are so generous, and I have to say, I’ve never seen more money raised at a charity event ever!”

Lisa thanked Yolanda for the invitation, adding, “Dancing on the table with my mascara smeared down to my knees was a fun added bonus, and then to see Steven Tyler plant those gorgeous lips on Kyle Richards – OMG – I die.”

“We make it to Amsterdam, and as you can see, we clearly packed the crazy train in our carry-on luggage,” said Lisa. “I was kinda hoping it would be left at home, but we just wouldn’t be us without it, now would we? Kim continues to constantly bitch at her sister in the airport and create a scene, which is only the beginning for lots more craziness to come!”
