Speaking of everything. BravoCon 2022 made its triumphant return to New York on Friday, October 14, and there was no holding back when it came to bombshells about everything from Real housewives franchise that Below deck.
Lisa Rinna received skinny welcome Bravo viewers when she appeared on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills panel beside Kyle Richards, Dorit Kemsley and Erika Jayne. Audiences weren’t thrilled with Rinna’s take on topics like “double standards” on the show.
The California native, 59, faced backlash for her participation in the 12th season RHOBH. Earlier this year, Rinna came under fire for racist accusations after an on-screen fight with her partner Garcelle Beauvais.
“We fight on our show, if we fight with Garcelle, all of a sudden we’re called racist. Those are bulls—t. I won’t accept that. I’ll express myself when and how I want and I’m not afraid of any of you bitches,” she explained via Instagram in June. “And if you’re just that excited about our show and a lot of you p—sies are going to watch [Real Housewives of] Dubame.”
The actress later retracted her comments following a backlash online. “I had a really hard time, I think you saw how hard this hit me. I’m sorry if I got mad at you, because of you — it really has nothing to do with either of you,” Rinna wrote on social media. “I know it’s not easy for me right now to have warm fuzzies, but I’m going to get through this and hopefully come out the other side stronger and better.”
During Season 12, Rinna was also caught in the middle of a feud between Richards, 53, and Kathy Hilton. After a group trip to Aspen, the former soap star claimed Hilton, 63, hit on all of their partners.
“My head is definitely in a fog after what happened last night. It’s way worse than a hangover. We were at the club and Kathy had an absolute meltdown. I’ve never seen anything like this in my life,” Rinna told the cameras during the September episode. “I’m not saying much because I’m still in shock from what I experienced. That’s not something I could ever imagine coming from anyone in this group, let alone Kathy Hilton.”
Rinna added: “She screams that she ‘made’ Kyle. Cathy is responsible for Kyle and said: ‘I will destroy Kyle and her family if that’s the last thing I ever do.’
The socialite, for her part, got back at Rinna during the season 12 season 1 reunion. “You’re the biggest bully in Hollywood and everybody knows it,” Hilton told her co-star before listing all the women who Days of our Lives alum has struggled in the past.
