When I watch Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I am intimidated by Lisa Vanderpump and there’s a television screen and two thousand miles between us. Well, that and the fact that we have never interacted in any way, shape, or form. Still, if I’m that intimidated, I can’t imagine how Lisa Rinna feels when Vanderpump throws her under the bus whenever she can.
A lot of the time Sometimes the insults are deserved. Other times they just make for great TV. For the most part Rinna is in on the joke and just laughs along with Vanderpump. For someone who can dish it out, it doesn’t seem like LVP can take it, since Rinna can’t even watch old RHOBH episodes on Instagram story without upsetting people. Nothing she said on those Instagram stories compares to the constant barrage of insults that Rinna receives from Vanderpump. Obviously the self-proclaimed queen of the show is upset about the Instagram stories and her fellow OG cast member Kyle Richards is on her side- of course. I don’t blame anyone for not wanting to go against Lisa Vanderpump.
In an interview with Bravo’s The Daily Dish podcast, Kyle discussed Rinna’s issues with Vanderpump and even her own issues with Vanderpump that will play out in upcoming episodes.
Before dishing on Rinna, Kyle shared that she and Vanderpump, “hit some bumps this season. No doubt. It’s inevitable. It’s really hard to maintain friendships on a show like this in reality television. We’ve gone through a lot and have been tested over and over again, but we really do care about each other and we know that we are better together than apart.” Although Kyle vs. Vanderpump would make for some pretty compelling television. Or at least some hilarious memes.
Still, Kyle insists, “I wouldn’t want to do the show without her. We have fun together and in order to do a show like this you have to be able to keep on having fun.” She explained, “We still have fun and laugh, but we piss each other off. This time that happened. I said it. She didn’t like it, so that created some issues and we had to work through it and we’re OK, but that hasn’t aired yet. So I always think to myself, ‘Oh god, now when this airs, it’s going to be another argument again. I can feel it.'” Poor Kyle, but I personally can’t wait to see what these two get into after being so loyal to each other the past few seasons. I cannot wait to see Kyle stand up to Lisa. I don’t understand why she hasn’t done it more.
Another relationship that I find tough to understand is the one Kyle has with Rinna. Apparently Kyle is also trying to figure it out since she said, “She does things that I really just don’t understand. It does make it harder and harder. Each time it happens, it makes it just a little bit more difficult.” I figured that she was referencing Rinna’s saga with Kyle’s sister Kim Richards, but she was actually talking about something much less serious: Instagram.
Yes, Kyle actually said, “Recently she’s been doing some weird things on her Instagram story, that I’m just kind of like ‘What are you doing? I just don’t understand that.’ I just find myself shaking my head.” All she did was watch the early seasons of RHOBH and share her reactions. She really did nothing sinister. Yes, I actually watched these Instagram stories and thought they were hilarious.
Kyle predicted, “It’s going to end up coming up because everyone has been talking about it. She’s been kind of taking jabs at Lisa Vanderpump and I’m thinking ‘Where did this come from? I don’t understand.'” Really? Kyle doesn’t know why Rinna would take jabs at Vanderpump? Vanderpump makes fun of Rinna every single chance she gets. Why wouldn’t Rinna want to throw some shade at Vanderpump? Why can’t they just exchange equal jabs back and forth without Rinna being the only one to apologize?
Still, Kyle insisted, “I don’t know where this is coming from and we’re not even shooting right now. I don’t get it.” I guess we will have to see if this comes up during the reunion episodes.
