Kathryn Edwards and Debra Messing on WWHL

WWHL: Kathryn Edwards Defends Telling Lisa Vanderpump What Erika Girardi Said About Her Behind Her Back

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills newbie Kathryn Edwards and The Mysteries of Laura star – and Bravo super fan – Debra Messing were Andy Cohen‘s guests on What What Happens Live.

Debra asks Kathryn why she told Lisa Vanderpump what Erika Girardi said. “I’m an honest person,” says Kathryn. “I get thrown under the bus if I don’t say something cause we all know the truth comes to the surface. I met them both at the same time. I’m not shady. I’ll say it to your face.”


A caller mentions that Debra was totally team Lisa Rinna last season and wants to know if she still is. “You know what, I love me a Rinna,” admits Debra. “I mean, she’s got a big mouth, with the Munchausen talk. She throws out these words and gets into trouble, but you gotta love a woman who goes on radio and talks about the dildos she loves.”

Andy revisits the Erika versus Lisa topic because Twitter’s on fire over the fact that Kathryn said she would be Erika’s friend, and then she turned around and betrayed her confidence.

“Can I also place it in chronological order? I said I wanted to be her friend, but I didn’t know she was going to be backstabbing Vanderpump,” shares Kathryn. “I love Erika. I really do. I think she’s a great girl. But when I said that, that was before she started backstabbing Vanderpump. I tell it to your face. I’m not a big behind-your-back talker.”

A caller asks Debra if she thinks Vicki Gunvalson knew Brooks Ayers was lying on Real Housewives of Orange County last season. “She TOTALLY knew,” says Debra. “Vicki. Knew. Ugh. She got me really really mad. She was so sanctimonious. When she compared herself to Jesus Christ, I was like, OK, I’m out.”

Andy throws a slew of questions at Kathryn about OJ Simpson:

Has she read Faye Resnick‘s book yet? “No.”

Has she watched The People vs. OJ Simpson? “No.”

Has Kathryn forgiven Faye? “I have. I think Faye is in a much better place and I’m really all about bygones being bygones.”

Did she get married at OJ’s house? “I did.”

Is she still in touch with OJ? “No.”

Does Kathryn think OJ is guilty? “It’s one of those things that you do not want to believe that someone you cared about and were friends with is capable of something like that. Honestly, I prefer not to even entertain that idea.”

Kathryn adds that she was asked to testify, but didn’t, because she fought the subpoena [from the defense]. “We really wanted to stay out of it.”

A caller asks Kathryn what she wanted to say to Faye at Kyle’s BBQ but didn’t. “I was going to tell her that she should get a new Wikipedia page and that she had no place because of the fact that she was in rehab when it all went down to come out and write a book.”
