Lisa Rinna: I Gave My Power Away to LVP

Lisa R. reflects on the past season and gives an ode to her father.

By Lisa Rinna

This season has been a tough one.  I've said some things that really pissed people off. Oh, I did that last year, too! 

How to Watch

Catch up on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Peacock or the Bravo App.

Let's talk about accountability.

I hold myself accountable--not you--not the women--myself. 

I hold myself accountable for saying the word and definition of Munchausen. 

I hold myself accountable for not speaking kindly about Kim and not only hurting her but hurting Kyle, too. 

I hold myself accountable for asking questions and trying to understand what Yolanda was going through and questioning her Instagram posts and feeling like there was something else going on not being shared with us.

I hold myself accountable for calling Erika a pussy and pre-judging her in any way, shape or form. Turns out she’s the bomb. 

I hold myself accountable for calling Lisa Vanderpump out on her manipulations. I gave my power away to LVP. I’m taking it back.

I hold myself accountable for not enabling Kim Richards. Yeah it was tough--love. Yes, love! I’ve learned this much about addiction: Enabling is not loving.

I hope I've grown from this experience. I am not perfect. I f--- up. I don't always say or do the politically correct thing. I’ve hurt people. I don't like to hurt people. I’ve learned my words hurt, and I must be careful with my honesty.

I have a very sensitive bullsh-- meter. I don't like injustice. I don't like dishonesty. It can make my blood boil and, yes, enrage me.

I am a work in progress.

If I've made you laugh, that would make me happy. If I've made you feel something, anything, I take that as I've done my job well.

At the end of the day, all of our feelings and opinions are valid.

We all deserve the same respect and validity of these feelings, and I am learning every day to look at each one of these women with compassion and empathy. I do care about all of them in spite of what you have seen.

To end, I'd like to honor my father who passed away January 21st 2016 at 2:45pm.

I miss him.

This was his favorite Frank Sinatra song.

It says it all... 

My Way

And now, the end is near

And so I face the final curtain

My friend, I'll say it clear

I'll state my case, of which I'm certain

I've lived a life that's full

I've traveled each and every highway

But more, much more than this

I did it my way. 

Regrets, I've made a few

But then again, too few to mention

I did what I had to do

And saw it through without exemption 

I planned each charted course

Each careful step along the byway

And more, much more than this

I did it my way

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew

When I bit off more than I could chew

But through it all, when there was doubt

I ate it up and spit it out

I faced it all and I stood tall

And did it my way 

I've loved, I've laughed and cried

I've had my fill my share of losing

And now, as tears subside, I find it all

So amusing

To think i did all that

And may I say, not in a shy way

Oh, no oh no not me, I did it my way. 

For what is a man, what has he got?

If not himself, then he has naught

To say the thing he truly feels and not the words

Of one who kneels

The record shows I took the blows and did it my way

Yes it was my way..........

Love, Lisa Rinna AKA “Wanker” xoxo
