Lisa Rinna, Dorinda Medley, and Leah McSweeney are slamming Bravo fans for harassing Kyle Richards’ daughter Portia,14, on Instagram amid the drama on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills last week.
The comments on Portia’s Instagram got so ugly that she had to turn off the ability to comment on her posts.
Numerous Bravo fans told Portia to “F–k off” in various ways while others went on to slam her parents. One fan told Portia her mom Kyle was “a mean bully” while saying her dad, Mauricio Umansky, was “horrible.”
Another fan told Portia her parents were “awful.”
Real Housewives of New York star Leah McSweeney caught wind of the comments Portia was getting and posted a video condemning the harassment.
“I am not fully caught up on watching Beverly Hills but it’s been brought to my attention that the fans are harassing the s–t out of Kyle Richards’ kids. There is never anything that makes that okay. We need to stop normalizing objectifying Housewives as if they are not people because they are, they are human. There are real-life consequences to bullying and victimizing these women as if they are just there for your personal entertainment. It’s sick and it breaks my heart for her. It’s one thing to be harrassed yourself by the “fans” but to have your child/children harrassed is a whole different story,” Leah said in a video.
She then encouraged overly invested fans who are harassing the Housewives and their kids to “think about what you are doing and if it’s really worth it.”
Lisa Rinna posted Leah’s video on her Instagram along with the caption: “Kids are off limits. All of the kids.”
Dorinda Medley agreed, writing, “Yes.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 8 pm on Bravo.
