Lisa Vanderpump may have been having multiple orgasms over seeing Lisa Rinna get her comeuppance on The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, but she’s straight up howling at Rinna’s latest claims about wanting peace with Kim Richards from here on in.
After apologizing for not blogging last week, Lisa launches into her thoughts on Rinna “owning it” this week. She begins, “Now let us begin to understand exactly what has transpired here as we delve into the complicated scenario that we have witnessed, the murky quagmire, where truth is scant on the ground.”

Lisa thinks, “After Mexico, I would assume Lisa Rinna came to the conclusion that the probability of Eden [Sasson’s] reiteration of their conversation being accurate was more likely than not. It was captured, documented for all to see, and I suppose, as Eden remained steadfast in her opinion, it must’ve provoked her to admit that it was said. Eileen [Davidson] comforting her friend, stating how wonderful she is, how she always owns her stuff, is ironic as Rinna previously had been in utter denial.”
Although Lisa is enjoying seeing Rinna come clean, she maintains that this issue is really about Kim – not her. “Yes, there was some sort of vindication from her brutal attacks last year, as we shine a light on her recollection skills, but the most important factor is that she seems relentless in her judgement of Kim.”
“I love Kim,” blogs Lisa, “We started this experience seven years ago, and I bore witness to her struggles with sobriety. I know her journey has been a challenging, painful one. As she has been so successful lately in her attempt to remain sober, it must be crucifying to have people doubt you, have the doubt thrust into an arena, where it is up for public scrutiny, all because of an hour or so interaction at Kyle’s house, where there was zero evidence to give Rinna’s claims any credence.”
Admitting that Rinna does have some “good qualities,” Lisa points out that “Harry [Hamlin] stating that LR has always tried to help her and has total empathy for Kim is laughable if it wasn’t so ridiculous. Lisa passed her resentment of Kim to Eden, knowing that Eden was eager to immerse herself in this group of women, and with her history felt, she could speak from authority.”
Lisa continues her criticism of Harry,
Enabler In Chief. “Well, as much as I respect and adore Mr. Hamlin, telling his wife just to speak the truth and speak from the heart is utter nonsense. When we had the conversations and assertions in Mexico, she vociferously denied saying any of those pertinent statements! Also sending texts threatening to ‘f— someone up’ does not resemble empathy. You can misuse it and abuse it, but the truth will prevail. Her intentions are coupled with retaliation from their altercation two years ago.”
“What I can’t quite digest is this: Rinna spoke openly to Eden, saying she ‘trusted her.‘ She insinuates it was a private conversation, but we all know that is not so. What difference did it make if Eden repeated it to me? Eden was protecting herself, explaining why she had been eager to get involved with talk of sobriety. Prudent? Maybe not, but after her own personal experiences, maybe she felt time was of the essence. She heard Kim was ‘close to dying’ and felt compelled to act as she valued Rinna’s opinion.”
And even though all seemed well after Carnie Wilson’s cheesecake intervention, Lisa astutely wonders, “Can we all give ourselves permission to make strident accusations, but as long as we “own it,” we are exonerated, free from blame?” (EXACTLY!) “This was a beautiful example of mea culpa…a little late for my liking, but there we have it, and on we move.”
Lisa ends her blog detailing the strides she and Ken are making against the Yulin Dog Meat Festival, as well as their excitement about opening Vanderpump Dogs Rescue. But watching the footage of abused dogs has taken an emotional toll on the couple, as it would on anyone with a heart.
“As I watch this footage, to see the depth of emotion that is so palpable, Ken devastated, tears rolled down my face, my husband and I have been traumatized by the visuals and stories we have endured. As I sat speaking to Congress, videos were shown where the screams from the audience were deafening as they witnessed atrocities that transpire in Yulin. We brought a dog onto the table, Liberty, a little puppy whose front legs were chopped off for a delicacy called hot and sour paw soup.”
Though she admits she “can’t fight every fight,” Lisa and Ken are determined to see this one through. She closes, “it is OUR priority, many of you know speaking on behalf of the LGBTQ community, as an advocate for equal rights, supporting Trevor Project, children with alopecia, the homeless …the list goes on…we can only do so much. But if we can create a better world for man’s best friend, by utilizing the platforms afforded to us, then that is what we shall do.”
