In a series of posts on Twitter Rinna pondered if her co-star Lisa Vanderpump will show up or not. Rinna also shared her own opinions on what should happen to LVP if she does skip the season 9 reunion.
“Since when do [housewives] perceive the reunion as optional? It’s a part of the job. Sheesh,” one fan tweeted.
“The reunion is part of the job description,” Rinna agreed. “If you don’t go don’t you get fired? That is the precedent that has been set from what I have seen. So I’m sure all will be there.”
As all OG RHOBH fans remember, Adriene Maloof infamously skipped the season 3 reunion and was fired from the show immediately. Adriene later returned to RHOBH as a friend over the years but never resecured her full-time role on RHOBH.
“Let me get this straight didn’t all of the women say Adrienne should have shown up for the reunion if you sign up to do this show you should blah blah blah…. isn’t that on film somewhere?” Rinna questioned. “Since y’all seem so clear about all of this.”
A fan then fulfilled Rinna’s requested and provided a clip from the season 3 reunion when the cast learned that Adrienne was skipping the reunion and would no longer be a part of the show.
Rinna denied said claim and made it clear she only wants everyone to abide by their contractual obligations.
“I don’t want anyone fired just stating what I know to be what is expected of us per our contract,” Rinna responded to said fan, while telling another, “No I don’t want to see anyone fired. Do you?”
Rinna explained that the cast is obligated by their contracts to film and attend the reunion, tweeting, “No one is special we all sign contracts that you have to abide by. It’s a contract it’s binding. You are in breach if you go against it.”
She continued, “It’s a job I know it’s hard for you all to see that but it’s a job. You choose to do it or not. No one puts a gun to your head. It’s your choice. We sign contracts to do this JOB. The end. If you don’t want to do the job then you leave. The end.”
Another fan, who agreed that RHOBH is a job, pointed out that unlike the rest of the cast Vanderpump has had to endure months of harassment.
Rinna responded: “How about all of the bashing we have endured here? Months later? But that’s ok?”
At the end of the day, Rinna made it clear she’ll be at the reunion because she wants her check.
