The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills violent attack by Lisa Rinna on Kim Richards, stopped by Brandi Glanville, seems to have exposed Lisa’s secret eating disorder! Bravo previews of RHOBH featured “Days of Our Lives” actress Lisa Rinna physically attack actress Kim Richards. It turns out that it was worse than it looked. Fans are in shock when what appeared to be a routine dinner party erupted into an assualt. Rinna lashed out in violence, reaching for Kim’s neck before Brandi Glanville just barely pulled a seated Kim out of Rinna’s reach.
Before Brandi Glanville could react and lead Kim Richards away from the table to safety, Lisa Rinna hurled a beverage at Kim’s face but didn’t stop there. Rinna took a goblet, raised her arm dramatically in Kim and Brandi’s direction, and smashed the glass violently onto the table. The two actresses barely had time to avoid the projectiles and were covered in glass shards. Glanville remarked later that she had never encountered anything like it and was rendered speechless by the incident. Brandi later remarked that she had to remove shards from her skin, out of her ear and hair. At the hotel, a calm Kim also stated that her clothing was covered in glass.
What caused the altercation? It seems Kim Richards, mother of four, had had enough. Her family had suffered from months of Rinna’s unending allegations of drug and alcohol abuse. Rinna has seemingly been on a crusade since last November to destroy Richards reputation. That Rinna claims she did so because she cares sounds hollow to viewers. At this point in the season it has been established that the two are not friends, don’t socialize and barely know each other. However, that fact has not hindered the twisted Rinna.
Episode after episode has shown Rinna endlessly declaring Kim is cuckoo, on the crazy train, a drunk, and an addict. After months of weathering Rinna’s campaign silently, Kim came out swinging, albeit with a few calculated words, not actual fists. The same cannot be said of Lisa Rinna. Her violent side has now been exposed on international television. It can be argued that anyone who rushes to heated anger so swiftly and with such violence has surely done so before. Most would agree this is a volatile woman with secrets to hide.
Generally, when a person is accused of something untrue the reaction is confusion or bemusement, not violence. The fact is that Kim didn’t actually say anything, she only hinted that she could. That was enough. Somehow, Kim’s barbs must have hit home. Just the hint of Kim threatening to expose Rinna and husband, actor Harry Hamlin’s possible secrets had Rinna screeching to her feet, chair flying, violently going for the jugular, literally. Rinna’s grab for Richard’s throat won’t be forgotten soon. It is marked that Kim remained rational and calm after her verbal jab, as though she knew she had Rinna dead to right and had accomplished what she had set out to do. Richards my have to duck to avoid flying glass shards that could have blinded her and cut her face and neck, but she did not flinch.
Fans of the reality series have watched newcomer Rinna flail for a storyline all season. Rinna’s failure to do so led her to an odd choice. She has made Kim Richards’ private sobriety HER storyline. Fans remain confused as to why. Richards’ admission of problems with alcohol was a topic in season 2. This is season five of RHOBH and it’s old news. Kim went to rehab and has been sober for three years. So why can’t Rinna let it go? Even viewers are tired of hearing Rinna exclaim, “Kim Richards is an addict.” They knew that almost four years ago. That Rinna’s proclamations are always delivered as though she has just made an amazing discovery, until then unknown, seems bizarre to those who follow the series. Kim has made it clear that she and Rinna are practically strangers who only filmed together for a few short weeks, while family, friends, and cast mates such as Glanville, have known her for years, socialize with her off camera and attest to her sobriety.
So why is Rinna obsessed with unfairly defaming Richards? Sources close to the production and fans see it as projection. Rinna may have her own issues. Right before the violence, Richards also taunted Rinna with, “eat some bread, it might make you feel better”. The look on Rinna’s castmates’ faces was one of silent understanding and horror. They all seemed to know exactly what Kim was inferring. The suggestion leaves many viewers wondering if Rinna does indeed have a secret eating disorder. If she does, Rinna didn’t dare address it and looked very uncomfortable after the remark.
Rinna herself has admitted to numerous issues of addiction in her family. In last week’s episode, Rinna stated that husband Hamlin has only been sober for three years and that their marriage and Hamlin “changed” for the better when he stopped drinking, which brings us back to what set Rinna off.
Kim appeared to have been calmly lying in wait at the dinner party. Lying in wait for Rinna to introduce her oft-repeated topic of addiction, but before Rinna could start in for the umpteenth time, Kim interrupted, and countered Rinna, “I’m worried about YOU”, “Let’s talk about what’s happening in YOUR house”, and “let’s talk about YOUR husband”.
Those are the simple words that induced Rinna’s sudden violence. Her terror at Kim finishing her message and telling the world what occurred with Hamlin, possibly while he still drank, obviously terrifies her. According to the Huffington Post, the Hamlins have been married for 17 years, yet Rinna asserts things changed for the better only three years ago. What happened before then?
Hamlin’s alcoholism, her admission of her own sister’s addictive personality and early death from drug addictions and drug overdose, Hamlin’s two brothers early deaths related to addictions and alcoholism, and her own possible eating disorders seem to plague Rinna. It isn’t hard to see her obsession with addictions, but her obsession with projecting her own family’s issues onto her RHOBH co-stars’ is becoming difficult to watch.
