Lisa Rinna Addresses The “Tense Conversation” With Kim On The Plane & The TroubleMaker Behind It

Posted on Feb 25 2015 - 12:56pm by Dani-K

RHOBH

Once again, Lisa Rinna, star of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” proves to be the voice of reason behind all things crazy in the worlds of Kim Richards and Brandi Glanville. In this week’s Bravo blog, Lisa R addresses the “tense conversation” with Kim on the plane and who is behind it. Spoiler alert: Brandi.

Lisa R says that Kim,

“was told that I had been talking to numerous people about her sobriety. Or rather, lack of sobriety. She wanted me to back off and stop talking behind her back, but here’s the thing you guys: I had just had a conversation to her face in Eileen’s kitchen. I looked into her eyes and flat-out said, “You can get help. You can talk to people. You can go to a meeting and find a group, so you aren’t alone.”
Lisa continues, “As we have seen before, Kim tends to conveniently forget key events and things that are said in her presence, so maybe I should have seen her response of “Blah, blah, blah” as “I am literally and physically not listening to any of this.”

We the viewers have witnessed this so many times. Kim sweeps her issues under the rug until she explodes like an overstuffed Louis Vuitton bag.

Lisa R breaks it down.

“The tense conversation between Kim and I on the plane, though, was just too much. She chose to speak to me as if I were a child and yelled at me each time I apologized to her. I don’t know how many times I apologized, and she decided to snub and fire back an icy, “Just drop it!” or “Leave it alone!” instead of carrying on a normal conversation where both people can speak like mature grown ups.”

That scene of the plane was cringe-worthy. I felt bad for Baby-Face. David Foster must be mad at him to stick him on a plane with these women.

RHOBH

Big I digress. Lisa R places blame on Brandi for being the pot-stirrer. (Or should I say smoker?)

“Of course, the bug in Kim’s ear is Brandi, Queen of Deflection. The reason I sat down for lunch with her was for me to ask why SHE is so aggressive and why SHE says the hurtful things she does and why SHE thinks it’s ok to act like a 3-year-old. I wanted to have a face-to-face, open and honest conversation with her about what makes her tick the way she does, so I could form my own opinions outside of what the other women have told me.”

We wish you this best with this Lisa R. In the world according to the Queen of Deflection, aka Brandi, she does nothing wrong and her harsh words and angry responses are a reaction to what the other ladies say or do to her. But Lisa R is catching on.

“As I can now see in hindsight, Brandi steered our lunch conversation to be about Kim, so we didn’t have to talk about why Brandi is the way she is. I would have liked to see Brandi be honest with Kim about her concerns she shared with me that day, but from what I can tell, Brandi seems scared of Kim and basically just tossed the whole messy situation on me.”

I’m not so sure that Brandi is afraid of Kim, or rather afraid that without Kim’s friendship Brandi would have no one on her side. Lisa R ends her blog by calling out Brandi’s friendship with Kim.

“If anything, I would say we’re actually witnessing Brandi talk behind Kim’s back, since she didn’t share any of her parts of the conversation. Very irresponsible and definitely not what I would call a good friend.”

    Right now is everyone against brandi once she’s gone wonder who’s next. BH is not going to be this FAB ZERO DRAMA show. That’s why they keep people like brandi like nene and teresa for the drama.
    If lisa R and Eileen are smart they go away from the show. this show is far from classy but not because of brandi because of andy. brandi is just doing her job stir the pot. No defending the drunki but calling the main instigater of them all Andy

    • Bad Barbie

      YEP! Look how Joyce bounced. She said it that it was bad for business and she sure doesn’t need the money. I am not sure why people with the caliber of Lisa V stay on this show. She has her own and still takes part in the circus and drama. She has enough publicity and doesn’t seem like she needs money.

      Eileen and Lisa R, if they stay they too are obviously after the exposure and paycheck.

      • italiano bambino

        They act like they don’t turn on each other but they do it all the time.

        Lisa loves the drama so she can claim all she want but she loves it. All of them pretty much

      • Was just thinking about poor Joyce. Wow, this show’s only attempt at diversity imploded. I know there are far more Latinas, Blacks, Asians, etc than you would ever suspect based on the cast of this show… At least they kept Ms. Maloof for a while. I would also love to see Atlanta mix it up with another “natural” blond. No need to keep things so homogenous.

        • Bad Barbie

          I totally agree. There are tons of wealthy educated women all over the US, they just may not want part of the circus. These shows were supposed to be all about the “lifestyle” or the rich and famous and some light drama but the table flip in NJ messed it all up.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Preach!

      • italiano bambino

        NO BS here babe 😛

    • Dani-K

      So true. They reward bad behavior. Last season on RHOC so many people wanted Tamra to be fired because she’s becoming mean and bitter, but they won’t because like Brandi, she fulfills the purpose of bringing the drama.

  • To Lisa R: you can’t help anyone who doesn’t want to help themselves. It’s plain as day that Kim has a problem, but until she can admit it to herself, there’s no need for you to continue to interjecting yourself into her drug riddled world. She won’t get it. All she needs is one enabler, that being Brandi, and she thinks that her life is on the right track, and it’s not. That’s how it usually goes with addicts. They think they have everything under control until they hit rock bottom. Maybe rock bottom is what Kim sadly needs.

    • Bad Barbie

      I agree. What more rock bottom can she get?

    • misstc

      Maybe she enjoys being miserable-some people feel alive if they are in pain

  • Bad Barbie

    Lisa, stay out of it. If Kim’s family hasn’t been able to get through… nobody will. She is a lost cause.

    • misstc

      yep!

    • Marsbars09

      I just posted that!

    • Dani-K

      Eileen has the right idea. There are some people who can’t/don’t want to be helped. Wish them the best and move on.

      • DoneWithBravo

        Eileen’s own husband seems a little weird to me. I loved him when I was young, but now he seems very “off” himself.

      • Bad Barbie

        Anyone that has taken any level of psychology classes knows that if the abuser doesn’t see a problem, it doesn’t matter who does.

  • She Stinks!

    Why is Lisa R even wasting her time? Having dealt with her husband and brothers in law, she should know better. You can’t fix someone that doesn’t want to be fixed. Give it up Lisa R!

    • italiano bambino

      because she got nothing else going on as far i can tell what storyline she got? nothing against her but im sure she seen the show so like you said why waste your time.

      • I1ST5XS

        Right, she is just using Kim for a story line and camera time.

    • Marsbars09

      I was surprised to learn Harry was a recovering alcoholic. Lisa failed to mention that when she was talking about how Harry’s brothers were alcoholics.

      • DoneWithBravo

        I don’t think that she wanted that portion shared with the world, but vile Kyle released that little bomb. What a bitch.

        • Marsbars09

          I don’t think Lisa wanted that information revealed either, but on the other hand Lisa had no problem revealing that Harry’s brothers were alcoholics on national TV.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            I don’t think Harry was really an alcoholic. He decided to quit drinking after both his brothers died–but I’ve never heard a whisper of him having a substance abuse problem–until Vyle brought it up.

            Some people decide to stop drinking because of heath reasons that have nothing to do with addiction.

          • Bad Barbie

            Obviously people in BH knew about Harry having this type of issue if it was brought up. Just like everyone knew about Maloofs surrogacy and it was no big deal that Brandi repeated it. That is what 99% of the fans were saying then. lol

          • I1ST5XS

            Harry wrote a memoir in 2010 about his drug and alcohol addiction. He even went to rehab. It seems that Lisa R wants to talk about everyone else’s addiction problems but her husbands. Hypocrite much? Good for Kyle! I’m glad she outed Lisa R and her deflection and delusion. Lisa R doesn’t give two shits about Kim. It’s just a story line and camera time for her. Lisa R = blabber mouth Brandi her first season = most viewers thinking is the refreshing truth canon.

          • Guest

            Yes, I learned that. Never knew it before.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            We must be watching different shows. Kyle is an a-hole. I never knew Harry H wrote a memoir.

          • I1ST5XS

            Just different opinions. Same show. I like Kyle, always have. Never liked Brandy from the moment she watched her son urinating on Adrienne’s lawn and did nothing. Knew she was trash then while most everyone else thought she was such a refreshing truth teller. Lisa R reminds me of Brandi her first season. I really wanted to like Lisa R. But in my opinion she is a fake, fake phony.

          • Bad Barbie

            And if you don’t want your shyte out in the open, then don’t do reality TV. That is what we tell everyone else.

        • Bad Barbie

          If she didn’t want that portion shared with the world, then stay off reality tv and related subjects. Aint that the mantra??????? 2 sets of rules.

  • RonnieIsBack

    The reunion is gonna be truly vunderful…..lololol

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Ronnie! The reunion is going to be a hot mess!

  • misstc

    I think everyone, including myself, think that maybe, just maybe I can be the one to get through to this person; this is what I think Lisa Rinna thought and failed. So I agree with many here, Kim doesn’t want help. Some people truly enjoy their pain and feel they deserve to be martyrs.

    • Marsbars09

      Kim is a lost cause.

    • Dani-K

      Yes, I think you are right. Martyrs like the attention and don’t want the help, advice, or to be saved.

  • Marsbars09

    Agreed. Kim is a lost cause.

  • italiano bambino

    Once kyle get rid of brandi because that’s how i been seen it so far. She WILL TURN ON LISA again i can put money. Kyle will try n turn everyone once against lisa. another thing longest kyle is in the show kim will stay. Just an observation.

  • Yolie

    I really love Lisa R. and feel like she’s tried to sincerely help Kim but there is nothing more she can do. Kim’s addiction is her issue. Kim doesn’t want the help. It’s time to let it go.

  • Brandi is just grasping at straws and yes, deflecting! When THAT many people tell you you have a problem, you might just want to listen and stop acting like a vicious bitch. Alcohol has so often been her excuse in the past… Now she is claiming to clean up her act but who knows.

    Even supposedly without the booze, her vulgarity and ignorance are on full display: “Woohoo! I love Amsterdam. Hookers in windows…yeah!”

    I know so many of you were shocked that she didn’t say – “wow! I love the Rijksmuseum with all its masterpieces by Van Gogh and the Dutch Masters….OR “The Anne Frank House is so moving – really makes you reflect on human nature at its best (those who hid her) and its worst (the 3rd Reich). Or even “A boat ride along the canals is such a sublime experience.”

    Nope! Leave it to Brandi to enthuse about the “hookers in the windows.”

    • doggiedaddy

      Or joke (or is obsess) about the pot shops because nothing says class like getting hi in Holland, especially when it’s already legal in Calif.
      This KK&B fight that never ends is kiling off viewers and making them look like fools.

      • Yeah – not quite sure what Yolanda still sees in her. That reaction to her home country was just plain insulting. C’mon, go ahead and mention the ganja once or twice – everyone associates Amsterdam with open pot smoking in “cafes” – but as you said – she harped on it and then swiftly followed up with the hooker cheer.
        Maybe Yolanda just likes to rescue people? She could rescue me and jet me off to Holland and beyond with Babyface en tow, no complaints or messy outbursts here (well, maybe a few fun outbursts). My fridge sure could use some organizing too!

      • chacha1

        Brandi thought she was so funny in her talking head about LisaV getting high …that puppet faced Ho is disgusting and not funny

  • doggiedaddy

    You tried LisaR, god bless and move on.
    Some people either don’t want help or can’t be helped.
    You tried, shared your story and were/are the better person for it.
    Kim is not not worth it.
    Move on.

  • bellaboo

    KIM IS A DRY DRUNK, AND SHOWS SIGNS OF SOME KIND OF MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEM. MORE THAN NOT ARE SUFFERING WITH SOME TYPE OF MENTAL ILLNESS. PLEASE GOOGLE “DRY DRUNK AND MENTAL ILLNESS. ITS KIM TO A T!! KIM IS DOING ANYTHING, AND EVERYTHING TO DEFLECT OFF OF HER, JUST LIKE WHAT LISA R SAYS. BY KIM YELLING, AND DISMISSVE IS A SIGN OF BEING A DRY DRUNK. THERES A LOT OF ANGER IN KIM, SHE DOES THIS TO MAKE ANYONE WHO TALKS ABOUT HER SOBRIETY, TO BACK OFF, AND JUST LIKE BEING DRUNK, SHE DOESNT CARE HOW ANYBODY MIGHT TAKE ALL OF HER SH*T, & THE FACT THAT SHE IS NOT DRINKING, OR DOING DRUGS, BUT HER BEHAVIOR IS JUST LIKE IT IS WHEN SHES DRUNK OR HIGH. THAT IS A DRY DRUNK, THEY ARE ANGRY. SHE EITHER IS BI-POLAR, BORDERLINE PERSONALITY DISORDER, OR IS SUFFERING FROM PTSD, (SHE DID HEAR HER FIANCE GET MURDERED). I DO KNOW THIS, SHE NEEDS A SPONSER (but she did say in her talking head: lisa asked her if she had a sponser, and does she go to meetings). BUT FOR SOME ODD REASON SHE GOT ANGRY WHEN LISA ASKED ABOUT IT. I HONESTLY THINK SHES DOESNT HAVE A SPONSER, AND IS NOT GOING TO MEETINGS, SHE WOULD NOT HAVE THAT KIND OF REACTION. GUILTY GUILTY GUILTY, YALL BE SURE TO LOOK UP DRY DRUNK

    • TartLemon

      Just sounds to me like another EXCUSE for Kim to make bad CHOICES.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        I agree with you. When my brother CHOSE to enter rehab and get clean, he did. None of us could make him. He’s clean now 10+ years–because he CHOOSES not to take drugs.

    • “Dry drunk”….I haven’t heard that term in some time. But yes, Kim fits the definition perfectly.

    • Sliceo’pie

      Why are you yelling!! LoL.

  • Angela Petrillo

    I’m sorry Kim may have a problem but addiction is not,should not be an open discussion for all those “Friends”(?) I mean come on it should be a family thing and everyone knows an addict will not stop until they want to stop and all addicts have slips.I think Lisa R just speds too much time on that subject,I’m getting tired of hearing and seeing it.Do it OFF the shows time.

    • chacha1

      I agree about Lisa Rinna, put it away already !!!!

  • Norrth

    Lisa Rinna seems to have a good heart and seems to have done a lot of good…then she ran into Kim and Brandi. I know why she tried to help, but sometimes you have to accept that some people won’t make use of that help.

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    Kimbecile is a horrible person and her sister Vyle is no better. Kim is just NASTY to people. She demands tons of apologies but never accepts them (sound familiar? Well that is the same thing Vyle does too. And come to think of it, so does Brandi.)

    It was REALLY nasty of Vyle to bring up the fact that Harry quit drinking. There was no need for that other than for Kyle to be the nasty piece of work that she is. No wonder More-greasy-ho is cheating on her. I couldn’t stand to live with that helicopter twirling, splits loving, narcissistic HO either!

    They say the things we hate in others are the things we hate in ourselves and I truly think that’s the case with Trashi Trashville and Vyle Bitchards. They hate each other because they are both narcissistic, attention-whoring, two-faced, stab-you-in-the-back pieces of shit. And Kim hates them both too–she’s just using Brandi because no one else will put up with her BS. And I’d just bet that bitch hasn’t seen a sober week in the last 3 years. It’s nothing but lies, deflection, and more lies.

    Although we did hear recently that Kimbecile no longer likes Brandi because she saw with her own two eyes that Trashi blabbed to Lisa.

    Kim, Trashi, Vyle, and Yolanda all need to find another gig–I’m sick of all of them messing up one of the few reality shows I still like. And they can go in that order.

    REALLY sick of Kimbecile in particular….

    • chacha1

      great comment and spot on and I am getting real sick of LisaV and her over the top concern for poor Kim ….. Kim sure hated her and Ken in Puerto Rico and let her know it

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Hi Chacha–always nice to see you. I haven’t actually seen ANY concern from Lisa V over Kim this season. She looks like she doesn’t want to touch her with a ten foot pole and as you said, after PR, who could blame Ken and her!

        • chacha1

          Hi 4 🙂 always nice to comment with you, maybe I am wrong (won’t be the 1st time LOL) but I thought I saw her hug her and tell her she was there to support her … hmmmm

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Hi ChaCha–no that was Yolanda who said, ‘No judgment, just want you to know that I am here to support you in whatever way I can.” As I said, it seems Lisa V doesn’t want to touch Kimbebcile with a ten foot pole! And I don’t blame her–I wouldn’t either!

          • chacha1

            🙂

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    And why is it that Kim has NEVER apologized to Lisa R or Eileen about her VILE behavior on poker night?

    I hope Andy Cohen grows a pair of balls for a change and calls her out on ALL her shit this past season. And there’s been a ton!

    • Susan Thorne Zavagli

      remember…she can’t remember about remembering to remind herself to remember……she is rude and it is never her fault

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Ugh! So sick to death of that bitch and her never-ending excuses and deflections.

      • chacha1

        she plays the ‘act’ like Yolanda does “HUH WHAT” Yolanda says I am blind and sick and Kim says that she is sober and they both do it with a straight face … Yolanda was pretty alert at the scavenger hunt and was running around and beating everyone … and it was nice to see they did the clues in Braille as Blind Yolanda was able to participate

  • Susan Thorne Zavagli

    just wait til Kim watches that lunch date with Lisa R …..the sparks will fly……Brandi made it sound like she has a lunatic on her back and is incapable of helping Kim….well don’t worry Brandi you broke Kims trust just like Kyle predicted ……Lisa R did nothing wrong and didn’t say anything that she hadn’t said to Kims face…….that poor Babyface he must have felt like Lisa R did in the limo ride with Kim

    • Bad Barbie

      How about her walk with her friend Jenn? That was not how a Bestie talks about her troubled friend.

    • chacha1

      Babyface has already dealt with Brandi and her possee (Yolanda dancing around the BBQ pit and Kyle) at a dinner party …. the moron David Foster and his phony wife knew Brandi is an asshole yet they put her next to Babyface at the dinner party …..

  • colleen

    If Brandi and Kim are Beasties, why didn’t Brandi telll Kim immediately after the lunch what Lisa R said? Supposedly the 2 BFFs talk on the phone all day. Brandi waited til they were boarding plane.

    • Bad Barbie

      Cause cameras were not rolling and the Truth Cannon must wait till they are …

  • I thoroughly have enjoyed Lisa Rinna and Eileen’s addition to the show. They’re both classy, educated and no nonsense women! Just what the show needed.

    • chacha1

      At first LisaR’s husband Harry Hamlin told her that he would divorce her if she went on that show, then he changed his mind …. they must need the money because if they watched that show they would have steered clear of the toxicity coming from the Richard sisters and Brandi Glanville

      • Hi Chacha! I think once the checks started rolling in, Harry had a sudden change of heart. That includes deals outside of RHOBH and not to mention all the doors it’s opening for Lisa. I think since Lisa R is a trained actress, she’s just viewing it as another acting gig and not taking this mess too personal.

        • chacha1

          Hi Suess ….. 🙂 ITA that makes sense 🙂

  • equinox2009

    Kim needs to get off this show. Everything is about her, she is rude, angry and won’t listen to anybody. If this is her story line to stay on the show then boot her, she makes me nervous and she makes me angry and I’m sick to death of her!! She makes everyone on the entire show walk on eggshells and is changing the dynamics of this group. It’s not pretty, it’s not fun. It’s bad enough to deal with Brandi but I would take her any day over Kim

    • chacha1

      The thing is is that Kim and Kyle Richards are known as mean girls who back stab everyone and are racist according to the book House of Hilton ….. I think they are two skanks along with their BFF Brandi Glanville

  • Gabby

    I don’t appreciate Kim running off at the mouth as if she can say anything she wants to others. I’d nip that in the bud immediately. Watch your mouth, trainwreck.

  • chacha1

    LisaR must be desperate for money to put up with those 2 skanks Brandi and Kim Richards

  • chacha1

    Isn’t it nice to see Blind Yolanda leave her death bed to go on scavenger hunts and travel to Amsterdam, all those selfies she put on social media with her false eyelashes and eye liner and earrings while lying in the hospital bed made my heart break for her …… how did she find the strength to lift her arm to take those pictures and aim in the right direction when blind

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      She’s a hypochondriac or has Munchhausen. The only reason she didn’t go to the reunion taping is that she didn’t want to be asked the hard questions about how horrid her behavior is to everyone. Talk about arrogance! She is such a control freak, I feel bad for her kids.

      • chacha1

        Exactly !!!
