From calling 'p**sies' to 'go watch RHODubai': Top 5 controversial statements made by 'RHOBH' star Lisa Rinna
Lisa Rinna has never shied away from voicing her thoughts and criticizing her 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' co-stars on social networking sites. She's in deep water with 'RHOBH' viewers and other franchise members after defending herself against racist allegations.
Rinna has a reputation for stirring things up on 'RHOBH.' The small-town Medford, Oregon native catapulted into Hollywood, becoming one of television's most known faces thanks to her exotic appearance, infectious enthusiasm, and legendary "hustle." When it comes to doing and saying provocative things, Rinna is notorious for staying in the spotlight. As a result, it's no surprise that she's returned to drama.

Rinna calls racist accusations 'bulls**t' and urges irate fans to 'go watch Dubai'
After defending herself against claims of racism, Lisa Rinna has lately gotten into trouble with 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' fans and other cast members. On June 30, the reality star enraged the 'Real Housewives of Dubai' cast as well as social media users when she labeled outraged viewers "hoes" and "p—sies" in addition to calling the accusations against her and some of her fellow cast members "bulls**t."
“We fight on our show if we fight with Garcelle [Beauvais] we are all of a sudden called racist,” Rinna said in a since-deleted Instagram Story caught by various Twitter fan accounts. “That’s bulls**t. I will not accept that. I will express myself when and how I want and I am not afraid of any of you hoes.” She then directed viewers to 'RHODubai' instead. “And if you are just so triggered by our show and a lot of you p**sies are go watch Dubai,” she said, followed by a series of smiling face emojis.
While the 'RHOBH' alum didn't go into detail, Beauvais lambasted their 'RHOBH' co-star Diana Jenkins on 'Watch What Happens Live' the day before, labeling Jenkins "uneducated" based on a statement she made about a Black artist. Several members of the 'RHODubai' cast soon turned to social media to protest Rinna's remarks. Chanel Ayan tweeted, "Keep Dubai out of your mess and your mouth," to which Lesa Milan answered, "She does not want this heat."
Rinna Africa called and they want their lips back! Keep Dubai out of your mess and your mouth. Tune in next Wednesday 9pm for a brand new episode of #RHODUBAI @BravoTV— Chanelayan (@chanelayan) July 1, 2022
Caroline Brooks responded to the 'RHOBH' star's insults in a long message. “Keep your posts and aggression directed at the women on your show,” she said on Instagram.“Tread lightly Rinna! Your words/posts are reckless and disrespectful.”
Rinna criticized 'Karens' who were 'begging' QVC to let her go due to her political beliefs
The designer of the Lisa Rinna Collection, which is offered exclusively on QVC, spoke out on her Instagram Story in June 2020 after what she called "Karens" apparently complained to the firm and sought to get her fired due to her political opinions. "I am sad to report it would now seem I can't use my platform to inform or question or say how I feel politically because the Karen's have bombarded QVC begging them to fire me and saying they will no longer buy my clothes," Rinna stated. "It is a shame that I must be muzzled in order to support my family but that it just what it is. Remember you know how I feel. Use your voice and vote," she added.
Rinna made it abundantly clear that she's glad to speak her beliefs in another Instagram Story picture packed with stickers that read "QUEER," "PROUD TO BE PROUD," "BLACK TRANS LIVES MATTERS," and "THIS FIGHT AIN'T OVER." "I will be on the right side of history and in the end THAT IS WHAT MATTERS MOST," she wrote.
The term 'Karen' is used on the internet to denote a woman who is entitled or demanding beyond what is deemed proper. In a 2019 story, the New York Times labeled a 'Karen' as the "policewomen of all human behavior." While it's unclear which of Rinna's social media postings enraged the "Karens," the 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' actress has frequently tweeted in favor of the Black Lives Matter movement, Pride Month, and the then-Supreme Court decision barring employment discrimination against LGBTQ individuals. One day after blasting her critics, Rinna posted another message on her Instagram Story, pledging to continue speaking her thoughts.
The 'move on' statement made by Rinna on Instagram was decried
Rinna received backlash from her Instagram fans in September 2020 after encouraging them to "move on," a reference to her continuing conflict with Denise Richards. Lisa rushed to Instagram after the reality show's reunion aired. "The future looks bright. Better not Bitter. Love you all!" she captioned a self-portrait. "Thank you for watching and let's for gods sakes Move on!!!"
Fans pounced, alleging she's the basis for the never-ending plot concerning rumors that Denise Richards had an affair with erstwhile 'Housewives' star Brandi Glanville – charges that Denise has denied. "'Move on'…?" one person commented. "Hunny weren't you were the one bullying Denise all season? Lol. But ok."
Another person stated, "Now you want to move on after you dragged Denise??? You couldn't let it go for an entire season!! You should send her flowers for giving you a storyline."
"You say 'move on' but you're still being petty and dragging it out in your stories right now," remarked another. A flood of identical remarks filled up Lisa's Instagram post's comments area.
Rinna defends Chaz Dean's disputed WEN Hair Care Product
Rinna openly backed Chaz Dean's WEN hair treatment products during the 2015 controversy. According to People, 200 customers filed a class-action complaint in California Federal Court against Guthy-Renker, claiming that using the 5-in-1 sulfate-free Cleansing Conditioner caused hair loss and scalp burns. Furthermore, the suit claims that the firm failed to notify users about the risks of using the medication promptly enough when complaints were received and even erased unfavorable reviews from social media. Nonetheless, Rinna stood by the shampoo, which she claimed she had been using on her renowned hair for over 20 years. Her statement read: "I've used #Wen products everyday for 22 yrs. My hair has never been Stonger or Healthier. I LOVE the Wen Product. I't works perfectly!"

Followers attacked Rinna, calling her 'Desperate'
On June 15, the Bravo actress shared an Instagram Story, which lasted for a few hours before being erased. Rinna posted on top of a bright pink background: "I’m just sitting here waiting to be blamed for everything that has come out in the zeitgeist/news over the last 24 hours #mastermind. What’s taking you so long lol. Oh and an all-new #RHOBH tonight don’t miss it @bravotv."
On Reddit, a screenshot of her Instagram Story was posted with the caption, “What the hell is Rinna talking about now?” "It's 100 Rinna striving to build a tale," one person responded. The thread garnered a lot of responses from fans, with the majority of them criticizing Rinna for her stance. “If this is about the Sutton [Stracke] thing, why would she think anyone would even suggest she was involved. She’s just trying to insert herself because she sees this getting a lot of air time And attention and she’s not at the center of it.”
"What an exhausting person," someone else commented. “It absolutely drained me. You’re right, she’s just so utterly exhausting… She’s a black hole, she just sucks all of the energy out of any room she’s in.” "She is PARCHED," one individual wrote. “She’s absolutely parched in the most unhinged way possible,” someone said.
