Lisa Rinna Forced Apology to Kathy Hilton After Being Blacklisted By Hollywood
Kathy Hilton confirmed that she had mended fences with Lisa Rinna after falling out with the former soap actress during Season 12 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
A fan asked Kathy Hilton if she had spoken to Rinna since they clashed on the reunion stage, during a November 29 appearance on “Watch What Happens Live.”
“Actually yes,” Kathy Hilton replied. “I have received the most beautiful giant flower bouquet and a beautiful card, and I called her to thank her. We talked for about 20 minutes.”
Host, Andy Cohen, asked the RHOBH alum if the pair had officially made “peace.”
“Absolutely,” Kathy said. “She’s doing well and I’m very happy for her. We always had such a good time. … until we didn’t.”
Kathy, 64, added — “Especially now, with everything we’re all going through in this world, we’ve gotta be together.”
Kathy and Rinna faced off during the Season 12 reunion after a cast trip to Aspen, Colorado went off the rails.
“I feel like I have seen the devil, and her name is Kathy Hilton,” Rinna told cameras, at the time.
Rinna claimed that Kathy suffered a “psychotic break” during the cast getaway, during which she supposedly threatened to “destroy” Kyle. The Bravo veteran also claimed that Kathy threatened the network and slammed several of the other women.
Kathy went on to blast Rinna as they rehashed the drama during the reunion series.
“You fight with everybody. What you did to my sister, and you drove Lisa Vanderpump off the show? I mean, the list can go on and on,” Kathy claimed. “You are the biggest bully in Hollywood, and everyone knows it.”
Rinna exited RHOBH at the conclusion of Season 12 and Kathy chose not to return as a cast “friend.”
Last month, Kathy revealed that she was not dismissing a potential return to the show.
“If it made sense … if they asked me,” Kathy said during a “Today” show interview. “Never say never.”
“I have to tell you. I had a very good time,” she told hosts, Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager. “And you know that one unfortunate situation at the end.”
“I had a really good time with the girls. We ate very well. Getting to spend that time with my sister during the pandemic. I felt very comfortable,” Kathy shared. “If I wanted to wear makeup. I put some. If I didn’t, I didn’t. And I just I really enjoyed it.”
Kathy reiterated her thoughts on WWHL, calling her time on RHOBH “an adventure.”
“I never knew I was quirky [until the show],” she said. “They don’t tell you what to do. You just walked around and do what you want.”
