There’s no doubt that Lisa Rinna is one of the biggest and most dramatic stars on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. And with her acting past on soap operas and Lifetime films, it should come as no surprise that Rinna knows how to draw viewers in. According to her IMDb profile, she appeared on the hit show Bravo in 2014, although it appears to be much longer.
In the 2022 season of the series, Rinna was once again at the center of much controversy thanks to some new outbursts, including some racist allegations against cast member Garcelle Beauvais. According to People, Rinna addressed the elephant in the room on Instagram. “I had a really tough time. I think you saw how badly this hit me. ‘ she captioned the post, which also included a quote about grief. “I never thought I would feel this way. I really thought grief would be about sadness and pain, but it’s so much more,” she added, explaining that she was really “struggling.”
The reality star thanked fans for their patience with her. “I know it’s not easy having warm fuzzies for me right now, but I’ll get through this and hopefully come out the other side stronger and better,” she wrote. However, some fans don’t buy Rinna’s apologies and excuses.
Fans lash out at Lisa Rinna on social media
Lisa Rinna has come under fire for seemingly using the death of her beloved mother as an excuse for a series of new outbursts. While the reality star is sticking by her words that losing her mother affected her actions, many fans don’t believe it. In fact, some naysayers took to social media to slam the reality star. “Not that Rinna is now using grief as an excuse for her BS… I rarely mention LVP, but didn’t she suddenly and tragically lose her brother during a particular season?” asked one Twitter user. “I don’t remember anyone giving her a pass out of grief…”
Another social media user also brought up Lisa Vanderpump. “F**k Lisa Rinna and her cops** no excuse for grief. No one supported LVP or gave passes when her brother and then mother died,” the person tweeted. “The Fox Force F**ks actually stepped up their attacks,” wrote another, adding that they’re “done with this toxic occupation.” Another person accused Rinna of “doing the same behavior for over 5 years!” before listing castmates that Rinna has feuded with. Wowza, those are some battle words.
As fans know, Rinna’s mom, Lois, made several appearances on “RHOBH,” and it was easy to see that the couple had a close bond. On November 15, 2021, Rinna updated fans on Instagram of her mother’s death, writing, “Heaven has a new angel.”
