Lisa Rinna came face to face with Lisa Vanderpump at Erika Girardi’s birthday party in the season premiere of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills last week. Although Vanderpump joked about pulling Rinna’s wig off, the two seemed to get along okay and in a new interview, Rinna is revealing why she decided to move forward with Lisa.
Rinna reveals she wanted to turn over a new leaf this season. “I can tell you honestly, six months had passed at this point. My father had passed away, and I was in a total different mindset, to be honest with you. And I think that when you lose a parent, it really changes you. It really puts everything into perspective,” she told Access Hollywood Live. “And so, I was actually happy to see her because I have a long history with Lisa. We didn’t have a good year last year, obviously, but I have much more of a long history. And I’m not the kind of person that holds grudges. I really just don’t. And especially after losing my dad, life is too short. It really is. I just want to move on and move through and let go.”
Rinna teased that we will have to wait and see what happens with her relationship with Vanderpump this season, which is also the case for her and Eden Sassoon. Rinna even hinted that she may not be close with Eden right now. “I think everybody has their own perspective and their own reality,” Lisa R. said. “And her reality, Eden’s reality, is different than my reality, and I think you’re gonna see that play out.”
But Lisa says she welcomed Eden and Dorit with open arms. “We have two great new girls on the show. It’s always great to have new blood. I mean, I was new blood. When Eileen [Davidson] and I came on together, we were new blood,” she explained. “It brings about great, new energy to play with, and the girls are strong.”
