Lisa Rinna had quite a season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Lacking her own storyline, she used her time vilify another cast member. Along with dancing around in varied stages of undress, this is her thing now. Lisa also managed to take a 20+ year friendship with Denise Richards and allow it to deteriorate in a sea of accusations and rumors. It was all speculation, but because of a few ambiguous texts and unreliable sources, most of the ladies deemed it as fact.
Much like the scandal involving a dog that we will never name again, viewers lost another cast member. As a result of being ganged up on and perhaps falsely implicated, Denise said hasta la vista to women who seemed to forget all previous experiences with Brandi Glanville aka THE TRUTH TELLER. Rinna didn’t mind exposing Denise’s purported infidelity and discussing it to excess, but we all know she isn’t too keen when someone brings up HER relationship. Recently, someone accused Harry Hamlin of extra-marital indiscretions on social media and Lisa responded. Now ladies and gentlemen, let’s talk about the husband…
Lisa Rinna has always brought the drama on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. For that, we appreciate her. But the drama she brings cross lines and make her look like some voice of reason. Whether it was the Yolanda Hadid has Munchausen syndrome story, the Kim Richards is close to death story, or this season’s Denise Richards pile on– Rinna dishes it out. But does she ever really take it?
She might talk about “owning it”, but that usually comes with some Emmy caliber crying-for-the-cameras. Point being, when someone questions Rinna’s motives, behavior, opinions, life, anything to do with her – she cannot handle it. Exhibit A is from the most recent episode of RHOBH. Garcelle Beauvais questioned if Rinna’s underwear dances on social media may have impacted Amelia Gray Hamlin’s body image. Rinna said no thoughtfully enough, and the women moved on. Yet months after this happened in rrealtime Garcelle’s getting the response Rinna has been waiting to give.
Oh Rinna, what’s wrong, girl? Cease and desist got your tongue? As viewers have learned, Lisa Rinna is not happy with the virtual Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion. While fans are in the midst of Season 10, the alleged hook up no one wants to see has yet to occur. Thankfully, Brandi Glanville of the Always Trying To Be Relevant Glanvilles, is lurking around the corner to stir things up.
Rinna has previously
blabbed implied the supposed “affair” between very-married Denise Richards and eternally-single Brandi is now an off-limits topic. While we should be thankful some of these purported details will remain unknown, Lisa is yelling from the rooftops that former friend Denise is a “phony AND a narcissist” after the reunion taping. Lisa also labeled the reunion as “bullshit”, stay classy y’all! Now Andy Cohen is responding to these comments, and Daddy might have to put someone in time out.
This season, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans have seen more of Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin’s daughter Amelia Gray Hamlin. She has utilized this platform to promote her clothing line and to open up about her struggles with an eating disorder.
While some viewers find Lisa and Amelia’s candid conversations to be compelling, there are some who aren’t that interested in the content. Furthermore, there are actually some trolls who had the nerve to accuse Amelia of pretending to have an eating disorder just to be on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Kim Richards is the former Housewife who keeps popping up like the Energizer Bunny. Not the gifted stuffed bunny that she refused to accept from Lisa Rinna for her grandson, however. Kim has reportedly filmed for season 10 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, so it is a safe bet we will see her on when the show returns.
We all know Kim has led a life of drama, which has often been showcased on RHOBH. Issues with alcohol and a few run-ins with the law are just the tip of the iceberg for Kim. The ugly feuds with her sister Kyle Richards were a major storyline when Kim was a Housewife. Last fall, it was announced that Kim was writing her autobiography, which always seems fitting for a former child star. Now, more information is coming out about the book–and it doesn’t look like Kim is holding anything back.
Harry Hamlin keeps a low profile as a husband on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. While Harry’s better half, Lisa Rinna, is sucking up all the attention from the show, Harry is spending time alone in the wilderness.
Harry wasn’t in favor of his wife joining RHOBH, until Rinna brought in Real Housewives of New York’s Bethenny Frankel to sell him on the idea. Still, Harry was concerned because of the high divorce rate on Housewives shows. Very true, Harry.
It feels like a whole lifetime ago to remember this, but technically, Lisa Rinna joined Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as a friend of Lisa Vanderpump’s. She knew Kyle Richards too, but LVP was the “in” they sold us on the show itself. Meanwhile, we all know that she signed on to sell more of those Lisa Rinna dusters on QVC.
From that point on Lisa and Lisa were frenemies at best, going back and forth with their playful jabs. At worst, they accused each other of some bad things and continually shaded each other in the most public ways possible. That’s why it’s super surprising that Lisa Rinna’s husband Harry Hamlin has nothing but good things to say about Lisa. Don’t come for us, Stans. What I’m saying is that I just assumed Harry would go along with his wife’s opinion, but he actually has very opposite thoughts. And it’s just nice to read something, well, kind for a change.
Lisa Rinna was the first famous actress to join the Real Housewives universe. This changed the game for sure. She definitely paved the way for Denise Richards and Garcelle Beauvais. Sorry Kim and Kyle Richards, but you weren’t exactly household names from childhood acting roles and being Paris Hilton’s aunt. Then again, Rinna wasn’t necessarily an A-list star, but anyway, my point is that it was an unexpected move and a bit of a risk when she joined the cast of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Her husband Harry Hamlin wasn’t down for her delving into reality TV, not that we necessarily see much of him outside the occasional pie baking and family barbeque. He was afraid of the reality TV divorce curse, which is a fair thing to fear when he had already been divorced twice.
