Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, smooth mombest known for her brutal honesty, she speaks candidly like never before.
In a new interview, Lisa promises this new season of RHOBH is going to be one for the books and discusses why she has become so successful, how she really shows her authentic self on the show and even how she is compared to by RHONY bethenny frankel?
“I think it’s one of the best seasons ever. I really do. There are so many things that happen that are real. My mom’s death and Dorit’s home invasion. Erika and what is happening and still happening. There are so many real problems that we are dealing with. And then what comes out of that is beyond,” he told Newsweek.
Lisa has undoubtedly become one of the most famous housewives in all of the franchises, whether you love her, hate her, or love to hate her. But her Lisa admits that she had reservations about joining the show, but she soon realized that she had to change her career in a different direction in order to get a job.
“It’s never something I aspired to, but I’m smart enough to know that as I get older, in this business, as an actor, as a woman, you can’t work for very long. I remember thinking when I turned 40, I better branch out. You better find this out. Because my time was up in 40. Because that’s what happened to me. It just started to dry up. And I thought, I feel great. I think I still look great. So I’m not going to accept this. That’s when I started branching out and opening myself up to other opportunities,” he said. RHOBH star explained on the way out.
And Lisa had opportunities. Lisa’s company, Rinna Beauty, has become a hugely successful cosmetics brand and she couldn’t be happier.
“It was born from following your passion, doing other things because life is short and you don’t have to do a single thing. And that’s how it started, and I never said no to anything after that. “
As for the show, viewers like to see Lisa as the “villain” and “troublemaker” of almost every season, however, Lisa only attributes that to her authenticity, honesty, and need to get to the truth.
“Because I am honest. And I’ll tell you what, no one is more heated than someone who is honest. The truth is a difficult pill for people to take. I’m honest and people would rather I wasn’t and I’d like them a lot more, but that’s not what you’re going to get.”
“What you see is what you get with me. Most people don’t like that because they don’t want to know the truth. I think, in a nutshell, that’s why I’m so polarizing on the show. Either you love me or you hate me. There really is no middle ground. I’m fine with it,” she admitted.
Lisa also let readers know that because RHOBH it’s a reality show, you can’t see her in “quieter situations” saying, “The show shows you a side of me that isn’t really the side of me that everyone lives with on a daily basis. i’m funnier i’m calmer i think the bias happens with the fanbase as they think i’m way more angry and bad than i actually am in life. I’m just reacting to what’s thrown at me on the show.”
At one point, the interviewer even compared Lisa’s rise from reality star to businesswoman to Bethenny Frankel, to which Lisa was humbled and stunned.
“God. I mean, she’s my idol… I’ve always aspired to that because I think she’s so smart and knowledgeable and no one has done it like Bethenny. I feel so grateful and so blessed that you put me in the same sentence.” than her,” the cosmetics founder gushed.
