There seems to be a shift in the atmosphere of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills lately. As it should have, following a brief break in production between Seasons 12 and 13 because of the widespread backlash following Kathy Hilton’s alleged outburst in Aspen. which was strange because Bravo’s cameras weren’t even used to record it.
Lisa Rinna is the person Crystal Kung Minkoff believes she knows exactly who blabbed. Although Lisa has always denied it, Crystal claims that it is now very clear that she was involved due to her absence.
Crystal thinks the RHOBH leaker is “obvious”
During her eight years on the program, Lisa made it her mission to plan and intensify any and all drama. It appears, though, that her pot-stirring may have extended beyond her time in front of the camera. Last week, Crystal was a guest on Scheana Shay’s podcast, and during their conversation, they discussed how Kathy’s Aspen outburst had been covered by the media.
To narrow it down, Crystal applied her logical thinking abilities. “I think it’s pretty obvious, w ith all the press leaks and stuff, that no press about our season is being leaked right now.”
Rinna was the only diamond holder who left between then and now. Though Crystal hypothesized that Lisa’s the leaker, she hasn’t figured out her motive.
Crystal explained, “It was my second year [on the show] and I still felt like a novice to the whole thing. So I was like ‘Maybe this is how the show works. Maybe it’s just how toxic it is. Maybe this is what people do’ … But I was like, ‘But why do they do that? Don’t you want the show to play out?’ I just didn’t understand it. But now, it’s far more clear to me, because, like, there’s nothing out. But why? I’ll never know.”
Crystal: The show has changed
Crystal says the show has changed. While she doesn’t agree that Lisa’s “THE biggest bully in Hollywood,” she does think that Lisa was a bully. But, it made for great TV.
“I would say maybe on the show, I could pretty much say that, yes. But in Hollywood — I think there’s a lot of mean people in Hollywood,” said Crystal.
She added, “[RHOBH Season 13] was very different. And I didn’t know Rinna’s impact on me until she was not there. That being said, I think that Rinna’s been, obviously, an incredible ‘Housewife.’ I mean, I used to watch it, so she was like iconic to me.”
It doesn’t seem like Crystal misses Lisa, but she thinks Lisa’s loyal ally Erika Jayne does.
“I could really feel [Erika’s] energy, like she didn’t have her person. But again, for her, then that changes how she’s going to experience other people,’ Crystal shared.
Hasn’t Rinna always been suspect #1? After all, she is a “HUSTLER!”
