Lisa Rinna is FINALLY admitting that she treated former c0stars and longtime friend Denise Richards like shit during season 10 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
On Wednesday, Lisa appeared on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, where she owned the fact that she was exceptionally “cruel” and “mean” to Denise last season.
“I don’t like my behavior and how I treated [Denise]. I was mean and…I was cruel…I was too cruel. I absolutely was, and I would like to atone for that,” she confessed.
She also reveals why she’s standing by Erika Jayne amid accusations that she and Tom Girardi embezzled millions from his clients, including widows and orphans.
Lisa then says what she’d do if she found out Erika was lying to her about not being aware or involved in Tom’s alleged crimes.
“The number one question I get, and I think all of you get, is ‘Did Erika know? Did she know what Tom was allegedly doing?'” Andy said before asking Lisa, “Did you automatically that she didn’t know, or did you have conversations that brought you to that opinion?”
“I think, and I still do that we need to let this play out,” Lisa confessed. “Why would Tom Girardi ever tell Erika Jayne anything? She doesn’t work at the law firm – there’s lawyer/client privilege. How could he ever even come home and say, ‘Oh, honey, by the way, I did this, this, and this.'”
Andy then asked, “Will you feel bad defending her if it comes out that she was knowledgeable of his crimes?”
“Of course I will,” Lisa quipped. “And I will have it out with her. That’s the thing if she is somehow lying to me in any way, shape, or form, we will come to terms with that. I have to let this play out because no one has been charged, no one has been arrested – we haven’t even heard her side of the story.”
She continued, “I know everyone is furious with me for standing by her, but she’s my friend. At the end of the day, she hasn’t been charged, and I believe he did it. He did this.”
