Back in 2019, Sarah Paulson caused quite the stir among Lisa Vanderpump‘s army of
trolls, err I mean fans. Taking Vanity Fair‘s famed lie detector test, the Emmy-winning actress spilled the tea that the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star “wasn’t that nice” to her when they met.
Now, in a new interview during Watch What Happens Live, Sarah is doubling down on her assertion and opening up about what it felt like to have the LVP army come after her.
“I mean, Andy, it’s that thing where I’m a bit of an idiot in the sense that when I was having that lie detector test, they truly strapped everything around me, the guy was sitting there and I felt somehow like if I didn’t answer the question properly…they were gonna call me out anyway,” the American Horror Story actress dished to Andy Cohen during the WWHL After Show.
“And listen, bless the fans,” she continued. “Bless the people who have her back, that’s great. But there was a kind of vitriol that was like, wow! I didn’t say she was a terrible person; I simply said she wasn’t that nice to me. She wasn’t! And that’s OK! It’s not a character assassination, it’s just she wasn’t that friendly.” (As someone who’s often been on the receiving end of Lisa‘s fans’ vitriol, I can personally attest to their rabid viciousness.)

“She did let me hold her dog,” Sarah conceded. “Which a lot of people peppered my Twitter feed with, like, ‘But she! The dog! She doesn’t let anybody touch Giggy!’ [hilariously incomprehensible stammering] And I was just like, ‘Yeah, uh, I probably grabbed the dog out of her hand anyway.’ But I was with other people she was…liked. She didn’t know who I was; I didn’t expect her to know who I was, but I just, you know, she wasn’t that nice.”
Of course, like the true Housewives fan she is, Sarah also kicked off her lie detector test by questioning the validity of LVP‘s very sketchy — and clearly rehearsed — polygraph from Season 9. (Remember the one? Where she was fed barbed “questions” as an excuse to attack Erika Jayne and Dorit Kemsley‘s appearance? Oh right, that was just her classic “British humor” again.)
