Bravo, Bravo F—king Bravo strikes again!
Following Wednesday’s all-new episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Lisa Rinna took to Instagram to shed light on some of the drama. She also dropped a bombshell that Bravo and the show’s producers probably didn’t want to be public knowledge!
According to Lisa, there was even more drama that went down while filming the August 4th episode. The outspoken RHOBH star says much of the drama was left on the cutting room floor.
“Dang it … I wish they had shown the screaming fight between the producer and Erika [Jayne] last night on the show in La Quinta,” Lisa wrote via her Instagram Stories on Thursday, August 5. “Now that would have been epic TV. Too bad.”
She added, “I’ll get in trouble for this in … 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.”
While Lisa didn’t say whether or not she got in any “trouble” for spilling the tea, she quickly deleted the post. However, Erika promptly reposted it on it her own Instagram story.
It all started when Erika told co-star Crystal Minkoff off-camera that Tom kept calling her repeatedly. While Erika and Crystal weren’t on camera during their convo, they were mic’d up, so producers asked them to have the conversation again on camera.
“It was a private conversation, but the women were still mic’d up,” a source explained to Us Weekly. “So, when the girls got back to the car, the producers told Erika they heard her on audio and that she had to repeat what she just said.”
“I had to ask my attorney to call his attorney to say, ‘Please stop calling Erika,’” she said in the episode. “You know, it’s just horrible. ‘I love you; I miss you, come home, are you sure?’ I’m like, ‘Stop. You gotta stop, you have to stop, honey. You need help.’ And I can’t give it.”
The drama kicked up when 20 minutes later, Garcelle asked Erika about her claims one more time.
“When the women returned from their shopping spree, Garcelle brought it up again, so Erika lost it,” the source continued. “[She asked,] ‘Why are we talking about this three different times? Why are you pressuring me to have this conversation about Tom calling me?’ She called producers out on camera, saying they put Garcelle up to this.”
The source also notes that reliving this all play out on RHOBH is extremely difficult for Erika.
“She’s watching the episodes back and reliving the moments and just getting emotional,” the insider explained. “It’s just been an emotional roller coaster for sure. Every day brings something new.”
“She hasn’t heard about how Tom feels about the divorce playing out on the Housewives,” the source added. “The communication is through their lawyers.”
