Lisa Rinna is starting out the new season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as an established fan favorite, and has simply been sharing nuggets about her life and family. She took to her blog to weigh in on the drama swirling around her cast mates, Yolanda Foster and Kyle Richards. She begins by sharing her thoughts about the passing of Eileen Davidson’s father-in-law, Dick Van Patten. 

“Seeing Eileen and Vince go to Palm Springs to honor his late father, Dick Van Patten, was quite touching and heartfelt. He was an extraordinary man that we all felt close to because so many of us grew up with him! As far as TV fathers go, Dick was among the most iconic. So, watching Eileen and Vince honor him at his star on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars and at his celebration of life was beautiful. It was an honor to have seen him when I did at the Burbank Film Festival last year.”

Lisa goes on to discuss the visit to Yolanda Foster’s condo, and her take on her friend’s battle with her health. 

“Being in her apartment with Eileen that day was an eye-opening experience as we were given the intimate opportunity to see her [Yolanda’s] day-to-day experiences. It was quite clear that we were sitting with a woman desperate to feel well and determined to figure out the culprits to her illness while watching her descent into darkness. My heart really went out to her in that moment as I couldn’t imagine, even for a second, having my own life do such a severe 180 due to illness. Yolanda’s situation affected me in a way that made me want to understand what she was going through, and I really started listening to the conversations going on around me pertaining to Yolanda, Lyme disease, and her journey to wellness.”

So what are Lisa’s thoughts about that controversial Lyme disease diagnosis? 

“As we can see with conversations between Lisa V. and Kyle, there was already quite a bit of chatter going on about Yolanda and her health. We saw Lisa V. talk to Kyle at lunch and openly admit she’s questioning what’s happening beyond the Lyme diagnosis. And then their second conversation about Yolanda in Tuscany where Lisa V. said, “I’m thinking what she’s thinking is… it’s not Lyme disease anymore” and “so you think the mental state dictates the physical state” in regard to Kyle’s story about her depression after her mother’s death showing itself as physical pain. There’s a whole lot of speculation we’re seeing right now.”

Lisa briefly addresses Kyle’s birth family dynamics and how they are playing out, regarding the Kyle’s family and the wedding of niece, Nicky Hilton.  

“The whole situation regarding Kyle and her niece Nicky Hilton’s wedding is just sad. For Mauricio, Alexia, and Sophia to not be invited after Kyle had been invited, uninvited, and invited again, within a matter of days, is inconceivable. There’s always three sides to every story: Your side, their side, and the truth. When it comes to this whole wedding thing, the truth is, this is a despicable situation to put a family member in.”

Lisa spills that next week she will be brought into the Lyme dialogue, as more of the cast questions what is going on with Yolanda. 

“Previews for next week show that these conversations about Yolanda’s health start to trickle out more openly among the rest of us, where we begin having some open and rather candid debates and conversations. A spark of curiosity has now been placed among the entire group and that is the true recipe to ignite a wildfire among us.”
