The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Bravo came under fire from actress Lisa Rinna for offering just “an episode of grace” to her mother, Lois DeAndrade Rinna, who died in November 2021 at the age of 93 after suffering a stroke.
It was “a shame on everyone”, according to Lisa Rinna, because “Lois deserved and deserved much better”.
On Sunday, the reality star retweeted a post from the Pink Pop Box podcast account that included Lisa and Lois, in which she expressed her dissatisfaction. The podcast entry states:
I just want to draw attention to the disconnect between what the production thinks is relevant and what is truly a real human event happening in front of them and what they think would draw ratings, which shocks me on occasion.
The post went on to say:
“Crystal’s Ominous Word and the Garcelle La Quinta Arrangement. was incredibly fixed. I’m a little surprised that in the last nine episodes they only showed part of Lois Rinna’s loss and how it affected Lisa Rinna; they did it masterfully, I should add. We’ve spent this time reflecting on the dining tables and who got the first bad luck this year.
The post also mentioned that dealing with things like the death of a loved one and a home invasion with guns aren’t ordinary subjects, “but they’re real things to talk about, and this is the real truth of their existence.”
The article states that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ successful season last year was due to being “fierce, honest, dark and real.” However, the show has delivered the “flattest sensational cut” this time around.
The post went on to say:
This year, two women made the decision to try to take control of the entire group’s history and rewrite them to appear as heroes. I don’t think it’s going to turn out the way these two women expect. It’s going to seriously backfire in about 4 weeks. Then let’s check your popularity. I could be wrong, but it’s happened before, so we’ll see.
The remark about Crystal Kung Minkoff’s comments on Sutton Stracke’s race last season has been called “obscure”.
For years, Lisa Rinna’s late mother made frequent appearances on the reality series and was adored by both the cast and viewers.
Real Beverly Hills housewives are denounced by Lisa Rinna
“4-time Emmy-nominated NYTIMES bestselling author” Lisa Rinna shared a photo of her wedding to Instagram announcing her mother’s death. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills portrayed just a small part of Lisa’s grieving journey after her death. Lisa wasn’t happy with the way the show honored her death, and she openly expressed her dissatisfaction.
On Monday, July 18, Lisa Rinna shared her thoughts on Twitter and said she believes the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will give Lois more credit because she was part of the reality series and was very popular with everyone.
However, Lisa said on Instagram that she was not ready to see her mother die live before the reality TV episode starring Lois aired. In May, the actress explained on her Instagram story:
The slippery little devil who is mourning. My mom will be on the show in about a week. I don’t want to go through this again, but I’m trying to accept what is. It’s fascinating to me that my anger was so constant during this time. I’m curious if any of you experienced this when grieving. Even when I’m fighting, I try to give space to all the feelings.
Lisa was shown opening up to her fellow housewives in Season 12 of the reality series and confessed that she “wanted to figure out how to live without my mom.” She even acknowledged that as she copes with the loss, she is in “a lot of pain” and is “doing my best.”
Lois had previously experienced strokes. This wasn’t the first time. Mother-of-two Lisa Hamlin, who is married to Harry Hamlin, revealed to her followers on Twitter in May 2019 that her mother “had a devastating stroke 6 years ago and had to learn to walk and talk again, she’s one of the lucky ones.” “
Even Lisa admitted that while she wasn’t “the same person she used to be” after her stroke, she “conquered so much.”
Frank Rinna, Lois’ late husband, died in January 2016. Along with her family, who held her in high esteem and thought “she will be with them forever as their guardian angel,” Lisa still mourns the loss.
