Lisa Rinna is perhaps the most iconic villain in the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills history. Hatred for the 59-year-old is so strong that some are calling for her firing. Others are reaching for the popcorn.
Her notoriety, of course, hasn’t slowed her down. The star recently strolled down a catwalk in Priscavera’s SS23 runway show. Earlier this year, she compared herself to a cockroach, saying you can’t get rid of her – though many have theorized she’s already been given the sack.
While speaking with Interview Magazine, Lisa was asked if “being the villain” paid off, as she was the only castmate to walk in the recent fashion show.
“What do you think?” said Lisa, to which the interviewer replied, “Mic drop.”
“Yes,” she then answered.
The star was also questioned about the RHOBH exit rumors.
“Are the rumors true?” asked the reporter. “Will we be seeing you next season?”
“We’ll see,” said Lisa. “What does Diana [Jenkins] say? ‘So you say.’ I don’t know. We’ll see.”
Soon after the interview, Lisa reposted a statement from a fan calling her a “shady villain.”
Some viewers – like @jarrahdelreyangel – are surprised by the animosity toward Lisa, and claim she understands the assignment. After all, no castmate on RHOBH wears a halo. Each star knows the job description.
The problem with Lisa is she’s an over-achiever. Throwing shade is a talent she’s perfected, and it bubbles out in strange moments.
But if Lisa leaves the show, who will deliver our mail?
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 12 airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
