The buzz surrounding The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 11 reunion is next level, as fans got a glimpse into the highly anticipated four-part sit-down with the recent release of the trailer on October 6. The preview, which opens with a sunrise over the city of Beverly Hills, shows Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Erika Girardi, Dorit Kemsley, Garcelle Beauvais, Sutton Stracke, and Crystal Kung Minkoff (joined by Kathy Hilton) as they sit down with host Andy Cohen — and no topic is left untouched.
After watching the RHOBH reunion trailer, one fan couldn’t help but recall an iconic moment that the opening shot of the preview reminded her of: the sunrise in the beginning of Disney’s The Lion King.
Her observation of the two similarities was amazingly crystallized in a meme she shared in a recent Twitter post. The image is a side-by-side comparison of the two sunrises, titled "Rob Minkoff's impact" in tribute to Crystal's husband, Rob Minkoff, who is the director of the Academy Award-winning animated feature film.
Crystal recently shared the post on her Instagram, writing “Rob is the moment” in her caption, alongside a lion and crown emoji in reference to The Lion King.
Lisa Rinna also showed her appreciation for the fan’s meme praising Crystal’s hubby. “ALWAYS,” wrote the fellow RHOBH 'Wife in the comments.
Crystal thanked the fan for giving recognition to her husband and seeing the connection between the memorable moment in The Lion King and the RHOBH reunion trailer. Crystal also made mention of who originally brought the meme to her attention — none other than Andy himself!
Crystal wrote, “@christinebiancavilla thank you for doing this!! @bravoandy actually sent this to me!!!” to which Christine replied in the comments, “I am HONORED.”
This isn't the first time the Minkoffs have showed love for each other on Instagram. The couple has gushed over one another before, as Crystal previously revealed a stunning bouquet of flowers her husband gave her to celebrate her RHOBH debut. On October 6, Rob also took to Instagram to praise his wife, sharing an adorable photo of the two of them sharing a smooch with the caption, "Congrats, honey. You did it!"
There's little doubt that the couple may just be each other's biggest fan, as Crystal shared her affections for Rob in an interview with The Daily Dish.
“[Rob] deserves his own show because he’s such a great person, honestly. He’s so humble, and that personality trait to me is just number one," she said in the interview. "My dad was super humble and Rob just has that and he’s so talented and he doesn’t even talk about it. I don’t think he even realizes his talent, you know?”
“He’s such an incredible dad and a great husband,” she continued. “When you find someone that shares the same passions, you know, like travel, like family, traditions… it makes it so much easier. And the love is… it’s not just about love. It’s about lifestyle and it’s about having the same wants in your future, and we shared all that. So the love was easy, you know? Because when someone shares that with you, you’re like, wow, it makes it so much easier. But for me, I think he likes that I’m always up for anything, too.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills four-part reunion begins October 13 at 8/7c.
