Lisa Rinna is known for her lips and the sometimes scandalous words that come out of them. The “Lips were made for talking” Housewife is doing what she does best and dishing on her relationships with her RHOBH co-stars and how she handles life as Real Housewife.
About her recent Twitter war with Brandi Glanville, Lisa says Brandi deserved to be called out for being so nasty and toxic. “Yeah, that one came out of my reading the Daily Mail. I just sent out a tweet because [Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards] are my friends. I heard [Brandi] say really, really nasty toxic things about these two women that I work with. I try to also, you know, fill myself with some positivity in the morning. I study Kabbalah, so I’ll scan the Zohar, or I will read some Eckhart Tolle.”
As for the fresh blood on RHOBH Lisa says, “I like both of them very much. I like Erika very much. She’s really interesting, and she’s very smart. And she’s been fun to work with.”
Lisa is loving being a Real Housewife now but doesn’t know how long she can actually handle doing it. “Oh God, I don’t know. It is a hard show to do because you do take it personally. You can’t help it. It’s real. It’s really happening even though it’s still a show. It’s not like I have a script. Even when I’m working as an actor, it’s really hard to let it go at the end of the day. I’m not somebody who can just drop a character and be myself. It comes along with me. So being myself, it’s even harder to drop. It’s kind of a mind-fuck, to be honest with you.”
Of course, it can’t be an RHOBH discussion without Lisa’s infamous Munchausen comment saying she brought it up on the show because it really happened and that’s what the ladies are supposed to do. “I mean, the truth of the truth is that really did happen. I’m doing a reality show. I’m supposed to show you my real life. I’m supposed to tell you what really goes on. You know, David Foster and Yolanda were getting divorced, and they hid the entire thing from us. We never even dealt with it. So I go, “All right, well what’s my job here?” My job is to show up and show you all aspects of my life. That’s what I signed up for. So to me, then, it’s very confusing if somebody can pick and choose what they show… Anyway, I think that doing the show has been a great thing, but I don’t know how long I’ll do it. They basically have to ask you [to stay on the show], so whether they ask me or not is always a question. If it’s meant to be, it’ll be. If not, I’m sure I will find something else to do.”
Thoughts on Lisa’s interview? Do you want Lisa to remain a Real Housewife? Was Lisa justified in bringing up the Munchausen comment on RHOBH?
