Andy Cohen’s reunion treatment of a Beverly Hills housewife has fans furious

Season 12 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills generated a lot of conversation due to its many controversial storylines. One particular housewife who outraged fans was Lisa Rinna. The former ‘Days of Our Lives’ star was known for being a pot stirrer on the show, but this year she wasn’t holding back on social media either.

In July, Rinna addressed her feud with castmate Garcelle Beauvais in an Instagram Story that was captured by a Twitter user. “We fight on our show, when we fight with Garcelle, we’re suddenly called racists. This is bullshit,” she wrote. Rinna then slammed “The Real Housewives of Dubai,” as she told fans (via Us Weekly), “And if you’re so triggered by our show and a lot of you p***ies look at Dubai.” The The “RHODubai” cast was quick to respond, with Chanel Ayan tweeting, “Keep Dubai out of your mess and out of your mouth.”

Rinna admitted she had been messy on social media and blamed her behavior on her mother’s recent death. In a now-deleted Instagram post, she wrote (via People), “I’ve had a really tough time, I think you can see how hard this has hit me. I’m sorry if I raged at you, at you – it really has nothing to do with either of you. Many fans weren’t quick to forgive Rinna, hoping that she would be held accountable during the Season 12 reunion. However, “RHOBH” fans were disappointed.

Andy Cohen let Lisa Rinna off the hook too easily

During the second part of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 12 reunion, Andy Cohen opened up about Lisa Rinna’s social media outbursts. “Lisa, I’ve spoken to you privately many times about this. Your social media is a disaster,” he told the housewife (via Page Six). Cohen then brought up Rinna’s claim that she was done posting about “RHOBH” and yet started “posting a storm about the reunion.” Rinna admitted she gets a “dopamine high” from the reactions she receives on social media.

‘RHOBH’ fans expected Cohen to take a tougher approach to Rinna, but many felt he let her off the hook while he previously criticized ‘The Real Housewives of Potomac’ star Candiace Dillard for creating drama had caused. One fan tweeted, “The way Andy is so casual with Rinna in her online posts but will attack Candiace for defending herself online.”

Another fan called out Cohen for allowing Rinna and Erika Jayne to downplay Garcelle Beauvais’ book being thrown in the trash, writing: “Honestly the book in the trash – and @Andy’s heinous behavior at the reunion — is a big metaphor for how Garcelle is treated on this show. It’s annoying … and heartbreaking.” Many fans are fed up with Rinna after Season 12 and were hoping for a cast change, but with Cohen being favored over her, she could be here to stay.
