Kathryn Edwards of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills says that Lisa Rinna has become a completely different person since she joined the cast and that she is actually working for Denise Richards to go this season.
“To not have your friend of 20 years your back must be hurting at all,” Edwards said on Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef’s podcast. “And it’s not even to say not to have your back at all. She was looking for her. She assumed it was the best storyline. So she made a season. That was hard for me. I had a hard time looking at it, to be honest. I mean, I collapsed and I felt bad for Denise.”
She added, “I’m giving Rinna some credit because she does a lot of things that a lot of people can hate and she really shouldn’t care”.

Lisa Rinna and Denise had a long-standing friendship that crumbled during Denise Richards’ last season at the show. Edwards was disappointed to see that Rinna lost that friendship.
“And as I said, I’ve been reviewing it for this podcast, part three,” she said. “And the second time I saw it, I felt really bad for Denise. I just want to say that she was talking about herself, in the sense that you’re careful who you’re in bed with and you know, no pun intended, but she did it with Brandi and I believe she did it too”.
“I’m still going back to Rinna is not the Lisa Rinna I’ve always known,” she revealed. Edwards thinks the lines in Rinna’s life are blurred now that she has been on the show for several seasons.
“She’s different in the show,” noted Edwards. “And there comes a time when I think the reality TV show, life kind of melts into your real life and the line gets blurred and you lose yourself. And I wonder if that happens to Rinna. So in that case, maybe she hangs out with Erika [Jayne]. “
She remembers Rinna as someone sober. “You know, she’s from Oregon,” Edwards said. “She’s a real sober girl, she’s got great friends she’s had for a long time. She is very caring. She has a good sense of humor. She’s athletic. She is a girl.”
“And I don’t think if I didn’t know that about her and I was just watching the show, I wouldn’t like her,” Edwards added. “But I know who she is and I have to believe that whoever I know she was or is, her real personality is who she really is.”
