Lisa Rinna Reacts to Garcelle Beauvais' Comments About the RHOBH Cast in the Press
The RHOBH cast member also clarified her issue with Garcelle's reaction to Harry Hamlin's pasta sauce.
In the September 15 episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kyle Richards confronted Garcelle Beauvais about some comments she made during a recent interview.
Back in January, Garcelle and her fellow co-hosts of The Real appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where guest host Mario Lopez asked her about her experience on RHOBH.
"Mario, it's like another animal. I mean, I have never done reality before, and putting yourself out there, you know, obviously, acting is really what I have always done. And you can't hide behind a character. This is it," Garcelle said. "And they're coming for me, let me just say that. They're coming for me. But I'm ready."
Garcelle explained in an interview during the episode that the interview took place shortly after her drama with Dorit Kemsley at the Rinna Beauty party. "When I did that interview, they asked me, 'How is it going with the girls?' It was right after the lip kit launch, so I was heated," she said.
Dorit expressed to Garcelle that she felt like she actually "came after me first." Garcelle told Dorit that she "felt like you came after me, and no one stood up for me" except for Sutton Stracke. "If I say I feel like I'm an outsider, that's how I feel. They could've had my back, but no one spoke up, no one said anything," Garcelle shared during an interview in the episode. "That's one of the things with [Lisa] Rinna. Although she wanted to repair our friendship, she never stood up for me. And where's Rinna? Sitting down watching this all go down."
As Garcelle mentioned, Lisa was noticeably absent from this discussion as she remained seated at the dinner table with Erika Girardi. "Garcelle got called out for being jabby and shady. If I feel there's injustice going on, I will say something. But I don't," Lisa explained in an interview during the episode. "You're a big girl. You can take Dorit [laughs]."
Lisa later shared more of her thoughts on Garcelle's comments to the press during the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen After Show on September 15 (clip below). She said that she didn't think Kyle and Dorit were overreacting about what Garcelle had said about the group. "No, actually, I don't because I think that, you know, when you go out into the press and say things, it's provocative, and I think that we certainly weren't coming for her," she said. "I mean, if we're coming for you, say it. But when that's not happening and you go out and say that and you're provocative, you get a response of what you saw."
Garcelle and Lisa have been working to rebuild their friendship in the aftermath of Season 10 of RHOBH. During the September 8 episode, Garcelle called Lisa out for not saying anything in her defense amid her drama with Dorit at the Rinna Beauty party. In response, Lisa expressed her disappointment with Garcelle for not showing her gratitude for her birthday cake surprise at the lunch at her house earlier this season as well as bringing her some of husband Harry Hamlin's sauce, even though Garcelle thanked the couple in the moment each time.
During Lisa's latest appearance on WWHL, Andy Cohen asked, "How many thank yous does Garcelle have to give you for that sauce for you to be happy?"
"Just one more," Lisa explained in response, below. "You just need to text me because Harry Hamlin asked me, 'Did Garcelle like the sauce?' And I wanted to be able to say, 'She did. She loved it.' That's all. It wasn't for me; it was for him."
