The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will soon be reunion-bound, where viewers can expect to see Lisa Rinna in fine form. A released preview clip shows Rinna pinning all things Munchausen, on the proclaimed master manipulator of the season, Lisa Vanderpump.
About seven months ago, Lisa Rinna hustled her way onto Jenny McCarthy’s radio show, ‘Dirty, Sexy, Funny’, and clips of her appearance were later featured on the show. What many viewers haven’t heard, is the full broadcast, where Rinna and McCarthy are bantering about the yet-to-be-aired season. The broadcast was taped in mid-September 2015, and Rinna spilled that Yolanda’s mysterious illness would be a major topic, during Season 6.
McCarthy asked if there could be a connection with the storyline involving Brooks Ayers’ fake cancer, on The Real Housewives of Orange County, and producers plotting around Yolanda’s Lyme disease “journey.” Rinna responded,
“I think that there are parallels, because we have the same production company, and they were doing the OC and this [Brooks] cancer story.”
Rinna then admitted that she knew that Yolanda’s shadowy Lyme disease would be the big story of the season.
“To be honest with you, I knew that we were going to tell the story about Yolanda. I just had a sense. I said to Harry, ‘This is going to be the story of the season, and I don’t want to do it, and I don’t feel good about it.’ I sensed that it was going to happen.”
Jenny pushed for more specific details, and asked if Yolanda would be accused of faking her illness. Rinna explained,
“Well, the storyline is we are going to have to go into ‘that,’ and why is somebody doing the show, when they are that sick, and they’re going to be questioned…”
Could “THAT” start with an “M?” Rinna admitted to the subject being emotionally difficult, because she only wants the best for Yolanda. She revealed that SHE is the one who tends to push dialogue into discomfort.
“I ask the questions that nobody wants asked, and nobody likes that.”
“Everybody else is really good at going ‘lalalalalala,’ not gonna deal with it, been on the show too long, I don’t want to get my hands dirty, you get your hands dirty.”
Earlier in the broadcast, Rinna boasted,
“I say things that people need to hear, not what they want to hear..and that stirs the fu*king pot.”
Listen to Rinna discuss the Yolanda storyline below:
Rinna was bragging about being the season’s courageous truth warrior before the season even began. That hustle evidently wasn’t working for her, so she later switched gears, and accused Lisa Vanderpump, of orchestrating the Munchausen drama, from the beginning.
Rinna’s mouth strikes again — and this time she is busted. Rinna can’t have it both ways — and no vague phone records will erase that Rinna KNEW — and Rinna took ACTION. I guess that this time, the hustle didn’t pay off.
