Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna recently decided to have a little fun and watch old episodes of the Bravo show, and she documented her reaction on her Instagram stories. This past week, Rinna watched the Season 4 RHOBH reunion and commented as the drama unfolded.
According to All About TRH, Rinna focused on the part where Kyle Richards and Brandi Glanville went after Lisa Vanderpump. It’s been a few years, so if you don’t remember, it was Season 4 when Vanderpump joked about the rumors that Mauricio Umansky was cheating on Richards with a mistress.
This was also the season where the RHOBH cast thought that Vanderpump was manipulating all of them.
Rinna claimed that this was the first time she had watched Season 4, and pointed out that Vanderpump didn’t want to talk about husbands at the reunion. But, during the season she had no problem with it.
The current cast just finished filming Season 9, and rumor has it that it will be Vanderpump’s last. She has been a cast member since the show debuted in 2010, and she will appear in the majority of episodes this season. However, there were times that she did refuse to film, and sources say “the rest of the cast is over her.”
“Lisa has only filmed on a few occasions during the beginning of filming this season, and has been absent the remainder of the time,” a source told E! News last fall. “She has been refusing to film and…her interactions with the ladies have been solely negative. Lisa has still not returned to filming and as of now has no plan to. It’s too far gone, and Lisa agrees that she shouldn’t return at this point.”
The rumors about Vanderpump leaving the show have persisted for months. The restaurateur didn’t attend Camille Grammer’s wedding October, and she didn’t join the cast during their trips to the Bahamas and France.
A source close to Vanderpump says that at the time, Vanderpump was “going through a lot,” thanks to the unexpected death of her brother, Mark. And, she chose not to film during group activities.
Vanderpump did confess last fall that she had been “more emotional” since losing her brother. And, she said that many people know that this past year has been a challenging one. After doing 320 episodes of reality TV, this season things felt different. Now, she wants to focus on the greater good and try to enjoy her life.
Lisa Rinna, Lisa Vanderpump and the rest of the ladies return for Season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Tuesday, February 12th.
