The #puppygate drama continued on the most recent episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and this time around Lisa Rinna got involved. During a dinner in the Bahamas, Rinna confronted Lisa Vanderpump about the dog drama and accused her of “setting up” the entire situation.
ICYMI, this all began when Dorit Kemsley adopted a puppy named Lucy Lucy Apple Juice from Vanderpump’s dog rescue center. But, after she got the dog home, it bit one of her kids, so Kemsley found the dog a “wonderful” new home.
Am I missing something because I the only manipulation I see is from Lisa Rinna. So confused. #rhobh

However, the dog’s new home ended up being an animal shelter, and one of Vanderpump’s employees told Teddi Mellencamp and Kyle Richards what Kemsley had done.
According to Radar Online, the situation didn’t make sense to Rinna, and she believed Vanderpump had her employee spread the gossip to make Kemsley look bad while keeping their friendship intact.
“Lisa, why aren’t you upset about this? He’s your employee!” Rinna screamed at Vanderpump. “This wouldn’t get out there if you didn’t want it out there. This is like bulls**t going to Teddi, bringing Kyle in. It sounds like a f**king set-up!”
Vanderpump claimed she never doubted Kemsley and believes her friend would only give the dog to a good home. But, when it all went wrong, Vanderpump says Kemsley should have given the dog back to her.

When Kemsley realized her RHOBH co-stars knew what happened with the dog, she started to cry.
Vanderpump said in her confessional that she’s not a liar, and they don’t know what they are talking about. She added that she would rather stay home and have a root canal instead of listening to the women question her integrity.
The SUR owner reportedly felt betrayed when Kemsley abandoned the dog at a shelter, and all of this led to a huge fallout between Vanderpump and the rest of the cast. The RHOBH ladies also claimed that Vanderpump was spilling secrets to the media.
Lisa Rinna is so obsessed with making LVP look like a master schemer. I wouldn’t be at all surprised to find out that she is the one who sold the story to the tabloids. #RHOBH

As for Rinna, she recently received backlash from fans after she claimed that Bravo gives Vanderpump special treatment. During an interview on The Jenny McCarthy Show, Rinna said that if she had refused to film the second half of Season 9 like Vanderpump did, she would have lost her job.
Fans pushed back against Lisa Rinna and the RHOBH ladies’ “thirsty pack mentality, and Rinna responded by saying that she said how she feels, and that is her prerogative.
New episodes of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills air Tuesday nights on Bravo.
