Lisa Rinna has owned it.RELATED: 7 times the 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' got too real
On Tuesday’s all new Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the 53-year-old actress finally admitted to spreading damaging gossip about Kim and Kyle Richards to pal Eden Sassoon — gossip that alleged Kim — a recovering addict — might be in the middle of a relapse, was “close to dying” and was being enabled by her sister, Kyle.
It was a change in tune for the Melrose Place alum, who had spent the past two episodes denying that her loose lips were the source of the rumors.
But after taking some time to recall the conversation she had with Sassoon while the two were shopping after Rinna’s game night face-off with Kim, it all came flying back.
“I’m realizing that I’ve said it, I did say those things. I now have to own it,” Rinna said. “It’s not always an easy thing to admit, but I tell the truth. And I will always tell my truth and stick to my truth. So I have to go in there and say, ‘You know what, I said it.’ ”
The Lisa Rinna apology tour wouldn’t be easy, but it did conveniently only have one stop: Kyle’s house — where Kim and Sassoon were gathered at a dessert tasting event along with a party full of eager Housewives and friends of Housewives, including Lisa Vanderpump, Erika Girardi, Eileen Davidson, Dorit Kemsley, Camille Grammer, Kim’s sponsor Clare, and Wilson Phillips star Carnie Wilson. (What, was Faye Resnick’s invitation lost in the mail?)
Anyway, things were fine in the beginning until Rinna finally decided to address the situation to Kim in front of the group. “It’s my time of reckoning,” she confessed to viewers, before telling the women that she had in fact said what Sassoon was accusing her of saying.
“I see that you’re in a good place right now — I do,” Rinna told Kim.
