Last season on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Rinna had it out with castmate Kim Richards for an offhand comment insinuating that Hamlin had been unfaithful — and by “had it out” we mean Rinna literally lunged across the table at Richards’ throat and smashed a wineglass.
Now those rumors are back, and they could play a major part in the plot of the new season.
“This season, several cast members started a campaign once filming began stating there had been whispers Harry had cheated on Lisa,” a source told Radar Online. “This was entirely separate from what Kim Richards had been referencing during the last season.”
Now not only is Rinna pissed off all over again, but so is her husband — and despite the rumor’s lack of validity, it is still having repercussions on their marriage.
“Lisa was furious this was continuing into another season and insisted it wasn’t true,” the source said. “Harry isn’t happy that he is going to be dragged through the mud yet again. Being on the show has definitely impacted their relationship.
“Lisa and Harry’s marriage is on solid ground, but how much more can this relationship take?”
When Richards’ accusations were first made, Rinna was forced to defend her husband — and her violent reaction — to the press.
“Harry didn’t do anything,” she told Access Hollywood. “When you insinuate something about someone, it’s out forever. I mean, it really is. You can’t prove a negative. No one will ever truly believe it. Harry didn’t do anything, of course, but the fact that she threw that out into the universe, I think is really irresponsible and dangerous — that’s what really fired me up, to be honest with you.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 6 premiere airs Dec. 1 on Bravo.
