It’s no secret that the entire Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast, except for Lisa Vanderpump, is receiving a ton of hate on social media.
And now some cast members believe the reason for this is social media bots. In fact, some members of the RHOBH cast think that LVP hired social media bots to attack them and their co-stars.
Erika Girardi touched upon this subject during a recent appearance on The Jenny McCarthy Show telling the Sirius XM host that she’s never seen hate like this before on social media and hinted that it might be due to social media bots.
“This season, we’ve talked about it as a group, we’ve never seen the hatred, I mean Kyle can speak about it more because she’s been here from the beginning but this is my fourth season. I’ve never seen the vitriol like this. I’ve never seen the clusters of groups and all of that. And it leads somewhere. We all see it. We all get it,” Erika explained.
Erika continued, “I mean, there certainly are a lot of them. It almost looks mechanical in a way. I’m just saying anything is possible. The numbers don’t lie. There’s a lot. I’ve never seen the hatred like this coming after five people that just happen to disagree with you.”
Lisa Rinna also dished about the use of social media in a recent tweet.
“This is fun! I think I’ve used enough trigger words to trigger all of the bots. Same bots go after
@realamberheard as us same company used I’ve heard people say,” Rinna tweeted.

As for LVP, she played dumb about this rumor on Twitter. LVP questioned what a “bot” was in a series of tweets and joked about spending money to pay them.
