Rest assured, everyone. All is fine in the world of social media once again. On the Monday (August 3) episode of Watch What Happens Live the long-simmering virtual beef between Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Lisa Rinna and Difficult People actor Billy Eichner (above) was finally squashed.
For those who may not know what we're referring to, as the legend goes, Lisa initially followed Billy on Twitter (which he was excited about). But then she un-followed him and that (understandably) bummed him out. He later called Lisa out on the un-follow during an appearance on Conan last December. After the story spread, she followed him once again. But was it just to save face? What happened to make her un-follow the comedian in the first place?! Lisa called WWHL to clear it all up. “There are so many things I do that I don’t even understand myself," she said. "I think I followed him and then he was talking too much and I thought, ‘I don’t want to follow him anymore' and I un-followed him."
Interesting. And, yes, Billy's public shaming of Lisa on Conan did prompt her to get on Team Billy again. “That’s right,” Lisa said. “I said 'Anybody with the balls to call me out, I am all on their team, I am all for them.' I don't even know how to mute. And I could have just muted you and I am so sorry I hurt your feelings.”
From the sounds of it, there don't seem to be any hard feelings on Billy's part. “I have to say that I do love Lisa Rinna and I have a weird affection for her," he said. There you have it: a mystery for the ages has been settled once and for all.
