RHOBH star Lisa Rinna is taking to her blog this week to explain why she brought up to Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump that she thought Yolanda Foster could have Munchausen Syndrome. Rinna also shares her thoughts on the rest of the episode. See what she had to say below.
“I can certainly understand the dynamics of juggling work, family, husband, home, etc., so I could relate to the conversation Eileen had with Vince at lunch. Itâ€™s all definitely a challenge! Thatâ€™s why in our house we just let Harry Hamlin be God and it seems to do the trick. I leave him alone, Lorena and I handle almost everything, and if we really need him, we ask, but other than that, I am fortunate enough to have Lorena helping me, so I donâ€™t have to ask God for much.
I love watching Erika, donâ€™t you? Sheâ€™s so confident and passionate about being and performing as Erika Jayne. Seeing her speak so confidently with David Foster about her music was impressive. I mean, heâ€™s one of the most respected music producers of our time and she just owns it while speaking about her own music. Itâ€™s also a lot of fun watching her and her costume designer together. Those costumes are so Bob Mackie on steroids!! Hilarious to think of Erika Jayne performing in one of her costumes for the Pope. Good for her for knowing that probably wouldnâ€™t be the best move! Like I said, I love watching Erika. Sheâ€™s so fun and such a great addition to the group and she helped keep everything pretty light, warm and fuzzy up until that point.
Oh, and then there was Munchausen! Yep, I brought it up. So hereâ€™s what happened:
Kyle, Eileen and I were invited over to Lisa Vâ€™s to meet her new horses. The conversation of Yolanda and her health challenges came up as we have seen happen quite often these days and I took this opportunity to really open up to the girls. As we know, Lisa V. and Kyle have had numerous conversations questioning Yolandaâ€™s health and her decisions and I felt safe among this group of friends to confide about how these same conversations were not only happening among our inner circle but in my outer circle of friends as well as with strangers. I am no doctor and I donâ€™t claim to be a doctor, nor do I want to give anyone a diagnosis. The word Munchausen was brought to me by my friend that these girls do not personally know, and I felt this was a safe place to bring it up. There I said it. I did. I own it. I donâ€™t feel good about it and I was very upset that I engaged in these conversations with others that are as naive as I am about Lyme Disease, but I did and I shared it with these women. I now know I need to tell Yolanda, as Eileen said, you need to talk to Yolanda about it, and I believe that to be true. So there you have it!”
