Lisa Rinna Reacts to ‘RHOBH’ Producer’s ‘Puppygate’ Claims


Lisa Rinna and Lisa Vanderpump.

The saga continues. It’s been greater than two years since Puppygate blew up The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, however a brand new guide has put the notorious incident again within the highlight — and Lisa Rinna has some ideas.

“Oh and speaking of dogs,” the truth star, 58, wrote in an Instagram Story on Wednesday, October 20, including a reposted slide about Lisa Vanderpump having leaked Puppygate again in season 9. “Finally caught red handed took 12 years but who’s counting.” In one other Story, the previous cleaning soap star shared a slide that learn, “Liar liar, pants on fire.”

Rinna’s posts had been in reference to Dave Quinn‘s new guide, Not All Diamonds and Rosé: The Inside Story of the Real Housewives from the People Who Lived It, revealed on Tuesday, October 19. In the tome, RHOBH government producer Chris Cullen claimed that Vanderpump, 61, actually was the one who advised the press that Dorit Kemsley had given away her new pooch.

“When Lisa lost the narrative in the show, and she realized that it wasn’t going the way she wanted, that’s when she leaked the story to the press,” Cullen advised Quinn within the guide.

As RHOBH viewers might bear in mind from season 9, Kemsley, 45, adopted a canine from the Simply Divine writer’s shelter, Vanderpump Dogs. The Beverly Beach designer later tried to rehome the pup, but it surely ended up in a kill shelter, which then alerted Vanderpump Dogs.

At that time, the Vanderpump Rules star confronted Kemsley about why the canine was in a kill shelter, and shortly thereafter, the story ended up on-line. Some of Vanderpump’s castmates accused her of leaking the information herself, however she denied it.

Despite the TomTom co-owner’s denials, the remainder of the Housewives — and notably Kyle Richards — continued to blame her for the leak. Tensions finally ran so excessive that Vanderpump left the present midseason.

Earlier this year, the Pooch Perfect choose advised Us Weekly that Puppygate was one of many major causes she determined to exit RHOBH.

“I left because I was very, very, very unhappy and I didn’t appreciate being called a liar,” she stated throughout a March episode of the “Getting Real with the Housewives” podcast. “To accuse me of selling a story, when you never get stories come out of my restaurants, you know, so it was such an insult to me. It was about my heart, it was about the Vanderpump Dog Foundation, which was something that was born out of complete compassion and my passion project. I just thought, ‘I’m done with it.’”

Rumors have since swirled that the U.Okay. native is plotting a return to the collection for season 12, however earlier this week, she slammed reviews that she’d requested Bravo for an enormous increase to come again.

“What utter nonsense,” she tweeted on Tuesday in response to a report that she requested $2 million to return. “I have asked for no such thing lol … [no] conversation regarding ‘that’ at all.”
