Lisa Vanderpump has suffered a series of losses in a short time. Her brother Mark passed away in April 2018. Most recently, she lost her mother, Jean Vanderpump in June. On top of this, LVP had to exit Real Housewives of Beverly Hills because of puppy-gate. When it rains it pours. Right now Lisa is in the middle of a hurricane.
In times like this, it’s important to receive support from the people in your life. So far, we know that Camille Grammer has publicly shared support. Even forever nemesis Brandi Glanville has shared her condolences with LVP on Twitter. Fans haven’t seen other current or past Housewives reach out to Lisa. Apparently, it’s our business.
Denise Richards, along with all of the other current cast members of RHOBH, has received her fair share of social media hate for not publicly sharing condolences. Denise isn’t having it. In a now-deleted tweet, an overly concerned fan inquired why Denise had not made a public statement about LVP’s loss.
Denise took to Twitter to clap back. She said, “I personally like to send condolences privately when it is someone I know.” This fan loved the attention seemingly regrets coming after Denise, and shared, “Wow got a taste of getting Twitter chewed out by other #RHOBH fans…I agree not everything has to be done in public, it would’ve been nice to see (but not necessary).”
Andy Cohen was also called out by a Twitter troll for not sending public condolences. As People magazine reported, “Cathy” came for Andy on Twitter, saying, “meanwhile @Andy is too busy tweeting about his world, and not a mention about LVP losing her mom Monday, shame on you Andy.” In a perfectly condescending response, Andy replied, “Cathy we were in touch privately on Tuesday, but I appreciate your concern about how and when I sent my condolences.”
We don’t personally know these people. We are not entitled to all of the responses we want to see. When it’s something really serious, most people know they should reach out to their friends privately. Plus, we don’t even know if LVP wants to hear from any of these people. Why add negativity to an already horrible situation? Bottom line, Twitter trolls are the worst.
TELL US- DO REALITY STARS HAVE TO SHARE EVERYTHING PUBLICLY? SHOULD PUBLIC CONDOLENCES BE A THING? DO YOU THINK LVP EVEN WANTS TO HEAR FROM THESE WOMEN?
