‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Recap: Lisa Rinna Calls Yolanda Foster ‘Manipulative,’ Says She ‘Scares the S–t Out of Me’

If there’s one thing we’ve learned in life, it’s that Lisa Rinna‘s lips are made for talking, and she literally has no filter. The controversial Housewife threw some major shade at Yolanda Foster during the Tuesday, March 8, episode of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, calling her the most manipulative member of the cast. Meanwhile, Kathryn Edwards single-handedly ruined a dinner party, causing Erika Girardi to get into a fight with her husband. It was, to quote Clueless‘ Cher, totally buggin’.

Lisa Rinna Isn’t Done Shading Yolanda

Lisa Rinna vs. The World! The chatty Housewife had a sit-down with her BFF, Eileen Davidson, and got all kinds of real about Yolanda. Long story short, Lisa thinks Yolanda is a manipulative mastermind who’s leveraging her Lyme disease. “I believe we are painted in a corner because of that illness,” she said as Eileen side-eyed. “Maybe she uses that sickness to her advantage in a lot of ways. … She scares the s–t out of me because I think she’s more manipulative than anybody.”

It should be noted that Eileen did not agree with her friend (quote: “I cannot believe this is coming out of Lisa Rinna’s mouth”), though she did think it was slightly strange that Yolanda skipped Erika’s dinner party on the same day she was spotted hanging with Kim Richards and Brandi Glanville.

“I found out that afternoon Yolanda had had lunch with Kim and Brandi,” Lisa said. “She couldn’t show up to her friend Erika’s house that night — she didn’t feel well. Now, I see that. I’m having trust issues right now with everybody. My trust issues are through the f–king roof.”

Later, Lisa complained to cameras, musing, “You don’t go hang out with Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards over Erika. Those are your friends? Then there’s a f–king issue.”

Kathryn Accuses Rinna of Not Eating

Speaking of Lisa, the former soap star butted heads with Kathryn over rumors that she has an eating disorder. Basically, Kathryn quipped, “She doesn’t eat,” and “You need two breadsticks,” and Lisa was not having it. “I’m gonna smack you in the face soon,” she said. “Don’t say that. When I wanna eat, I will eat. And when I wanna drink, I will drink.”

Kathryn didn’t seem fazed by Lisa’s hurt feels, and simply said, “You know what that’s called? A sense of humor — try it on.”

Kathryn Ruins a Dinner Party Like It’s Her Job

Time to discuss Erika’s dinner party, aka The Worst Night Ever. Long story short, Kathryn ruined the evening by talking over everyone and being generally sassy, while Erika and her husband looked on in horror. “What the f–k. Just relax, girl,” Erika said. “Let us get to know you — you don’t need to hit us over the head with your personality.”

Things got particularly awkward when Kathryn told Erika not to roll her eyes, and she responded, “Why shouldn’t I roll my eyes? Why are you yelling at me in my own home? Why are you being so aggressive?”

“I would never come to someone’s home, meet someone’s husband for the first time and act like a f–king a–,” Erika later told cameras. “This is not the dinner party I had in mind. I’m not happy, and I’m totally embarrassed for me and for my husband.”

Oh, and speaking of Tom, Erika revealed that he wouldn’t speak to her the morning after their soiree. “He’s f–king pissed at me this morning,” she told Kyle. “I’m not allowed to do that s–t, quite honestly. That’s not OK in my house … I feel f–ked-over.”

Rinna Blames Munchausen-Gate on Kyle and Lisa

Oh, you thought we were done chatting about Lisa Rinna? Never! This feisty lady decided to throw Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpmp under the bus, saying that they encouraged her to bring up Yolanda’s alleged Munchausen syndrome. “Both Lisa and Kylie talked plenty about Yolanda,” Rinna told Eileen. “And whether she had Munchausen or whether she was faking it. They sent pictures back and forth to each other, giggling … I call bulls–t. I’ve had a come-to-Jesus moment.”

Rinna took full responsibility for dropping the M-word, but said, “Would I have brought it up if I hadn’t got the phone call from Vanderpump? I don’t know, probably not. I’ve allowed myself to be used as a pawn.”

Yolanda and Kyle Get Their Bond On

Real talk: this episode was rough. But one good thing happened! Yolanda and Kyle kissed and made up. Yolanda explained that she wrote Kyle an email because she felt “attacked,” saying, “It almost felt like you were trying to instigate something that in my mind had already passed.”

Kyle told Yolanda that she also felt attacked, but ended up being the bigger person and hugging it out due to the fact that Yolanda already has enough on her plate. Oh, and also Yo had this to say about Rinna: “I’m not gonna focus on some crazy woman calling me names out in public.”

Erika Confronts Kathryn

Erika doesn’t hold a grudge! The performance artist ended up confronting Kathryn, who she blamed for gabbing about her to Lisa Vanderpump: “Now I have a hard time having a relationship with [Lisa]. Because of you. Do you think she’s really gonna wanna be friends with me? Do you think she’s really gonna wanna be nice to me? No. You took care of that.”

Kathryn tried to compliment Erika’s husband to get on her good side, but she shut that conversation down right away: “He is lovely, but how would you know because you talked the whole f–king night?”

The good news is that Erika eventually accepted Kathryn’s apology, but girl better watch herself. “I don’t really give second chances, but Kathryn apologized,” she said. “There won’t be a third chance.” Yikes — watch your back, Kathryn!
