Lisa Rinna took to her blog to share her thoughts on the season finale of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I, for one, am sad the season is over, save for the three-part reunion, because Beverly Hills has always been my favorite Real Housewives show. But seriously – this cannot be said enough – I hope and pray Andy Cohen takes out the trash before next season.
Reflecting on the season/experience as a whole, Lisa shared, “We managed to get through Season 5 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills without anyone going to prison! It got close at times, but thankfully, we did it. I went into this promising myself I would tell the truth, own my sh–, and always, ALWAYS come from a place of authenticity. Much like everyone else, I am human, and I make mistakes. Sometimes, I act on emotion before really allowing myself time to process, and that can lead me to say or do things that I’m not always proud of. But I make sure to own what I say and do, learn from the mistake, and hopefully grow into a better person because of it.”

Watching the swing set scene prompted Lisa to add, “I am fiercely protective of my husband and girls and will not tolerate anyone trying to falsely tarnish the love we all have for one another. The fact that this was even attempted that first night in Amsterdam was both an injustice and violation to my family and me. As a matter of fact, it is such an injustice, that as we all saw, my inner Dalai Lama moved aside to let my inner gangster take over!”
Moving on to Adrienne’s Maloof‘s party, Lisa said, I feel like I need to remind you that I was done, done, DONE with Kim Richards at this point. I went to this party with zero intentions of talking TO Kim, ABOUT Kim, and definitely nothing around Kim’s forbidden topic of sobriety. I have been scolded, yelled at, and thrown really f—ing hard into the lion’s den about it, so for my own sanity and peace of mind I. Had. To. Be. Done.”
“Now keep this in mind as I see Kim Richards walking toward me with a certain look of misguided determination in her eyes,” joked Lisa. “When she sits down and asks me to talk about her sobriety, I honestly think I died a little inside.”
Lisa went on to say that her initial thought was, SET UP!, but she soon realized that Kim planned to use her to hurt Kyle Richards.
“Kim was making it very clear that she chose not to believe what Kyle had told her, and she was trying to drag me in to help take down her sister,” maintained Lisa. “Let’s be real here for just a moment: We all know Kim doesn’t like, trust, or want to be around me at all, so why does she need my confirmation or validation of the conversation? Kim was going to hear exactly what she wanted to hear, regardless of anything I said, because that’s exactly what she does with everything anyway.”
Lisa explained that she decided NOT to play Kim‘s game, but that backfired on her because it pissed off Kyle and Eileen Davidson.
“I felt an overwhelming feeling that I wasn’t taking Kyle and Eileen’s side,” said Lisa. “I wanted to support them, so I confirmed the conversation only because Kyle needed me to. Not because Kim wanted me to. Big difference. So, I put aside my own opinion and point of view to support Kyle, since she felt so strongly about it. Walking over to Kim, only to have her shush me and snap at me and speak to me as if I were a child, was only allowing for more red flags to fly. As you saw, I took it in stride and temporarily buried it, but I really don’t do well with people talking to me in such a disrespectful way.”
Lisa reiterated that her concern for Kim was genuine and she never set out to drive a wedge between Kim and Brandi Glanville.
“I never had any intentions of making Brandi look bad during our conversation. I really felt she was speaking from the heart about her friend, Kim. It’s just a shame that she didn’t feel the same about my role in the conversation, and, yet again, she denies what was actually said,” griped Lisa. “But I guess you live and you learn, and you slowly start to identify a person’s true colors, which is all just a part of this process.
“I am still left bewildered and baffled with absolutely no closure from that party. I was just kind of left sitting there at the party dumbfounded by the turn of events and also by the way I was treated by Kim Richards,” bemoaned Lisa. “It’s so not okay to speak to people the way she does. That said, I do think Monty is a very sweet man, and I absolutely wish him the best.”
Lisa plugged the upcoming reunion. “You’ve seen the previews by now, and it’s every bit as crazy as you’re thinking it will be. Lots of tears and screaming and F-bombs, and that’s just from Andy! Just kidding. But seriously, it was a nightmare of epic proportions, like a roller coaster you were trapped on for ten hours. I’ve never experienced anything like it.”
