Another week, another reason not to like Lisa Rinna and Erika Jayne’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. For months, we heard all this talk about an explosive fight in Aspen, only for it to come along, completely smear our fan-favorite Kathy Hilton, and have the only account of her allegedly erratic behavior come from a conspicuously fake pair of lips. .
The vagueness of what really happened with Kathy continued on Wednesday night’s episode (September 21). Although all the ladies saw some kind of commotion at the Aspen club, apparently only Lisa witnessed the full rage, which made him a bit suspicious.
The younger sister, Kyle Richards, said that Kathy wanted her to leave the club with her, but she didn’t want to go. Lisa, who left with the socialite, claimed that she was throwing things at the house, said that she would take Bravo down, and made horrible statements about Kyle (and possibly the rest of the ladies). Meanwhile, Sutton Stracke thought she was upset that no one wanted to join a conga line.
Come what may, Kathy’s presence at Crystal Kung Minkoff’s 1920s-themed birthday party made Lisa so uncomfortable she had to leave, even admitting on camera that the star’s alleged tirade reality TV made her feel “PTSD”.
It’s a lot of “I’ve never seen anything like this” and “I’m still in shock from what I experienced” and not enough explanation of what actually happened, or proof, since it happened off-camera.
Perhaps what’s even more shocking (or maybe not, because at this point the bad behavior is in character) is that Lisa, who has been repeatedly criticized by fans for her aggressive outbursts this season, specifically towards Sutton. She is also known to break a glass or two on her day (re: Lisa vs. Kim Richards Amsterdam Smackdown, 2015).
Even less surprising is that Erika Jayne joins in on the torment, a sure way to distract herself from all that “you have no mercy for burn victims” drama that threw her under the bus just a couple of episodes ago.
“I am not here to protect anyone. They certainly have not protected me,” she told the camera. “Like I’ve always said, this game always turns everyone on. Your turn.”
So while Lisa and Erika are hell-bent on this takedown, until we hear what happened from Kathy Hilton herself, they need to stop downplaying her insufferable behavior and leave Kathy alone. The show can’t afford to lose another Lisa Vanderpump.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
