Lisa Rinna is used to dealing with her fair share of conflict with her co-stars from “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” and also takes criticism from fans, but after she dropped a little sage advice about love and respect she was fed another helping of hate from her millions of followers. Rinna took to Instagram late Friday evening and shared a sensual snap with fans when she threw it back to her old Playboy days and relived the glory.
The 57-year-old “RHOBH” star treated her 2.1 million followers to a delightful throwback to kick off the weekend. Rinna posed for Playboy back in 2009 when she dressed as Ann Bancroft’s legendary character, Mrs. Robinson, from the 1967 classic, “The Graduate. The reality star dropped one of the shots from inside the issue on Friday, along with a message to the haters:
“There are many sides to all of us. Embrace them all,” Rinna captioned the nude shot of herself along with the word, Playboy, written on her chest in red lipstick.
Although Lisa Rinna was trying to keep it positive and send a thoughtful message, many of her followers immediately lashed out in anger and claimed the Bravo reality star should heed her own advice.
“You should apply that feeling towards your so called friends…instead you rip them apart,” one person commented.
“She is soo desperately trying not to be boring to remain on the show. So so so desp [sic],” another person wrote.
“Move on Rinna your done and we are done with you,” a third person told the star.
Although many of Lisa Rinna’s followers were throwing major shade, there were enough supporters that made sure to send some love towards the reality star’s way.
“Your the best..love how you are just yourself …So gorgeous,” one fan wrote.
“Gorgeous I love you, you’re a great role model for your daughters F the haters,” another “RHOBH” fan commented.
“Own it! So pretty and you make me laugh which is nice these days!” another Lisa Rinna supporter proclaimed.
Fans have been divided over Lisa Rinna lately, especially after the falling out with Denise Richards.
Lisa Rinna is proud of her Playboy covers, as she has been featured on the legendary magazine twice. She first appeared back in 1998 while starring on “Melrose Place” and actually pregnant with her first child. Rinna’s husband, Harry Hamlin, was also featured in the pictorial.
Living her life with no regrets, Rinna still loves her decision to be in Playboy while pregnant, saying, “I’m proud of it. I will always be proud of it. I will always be very happy with that decision that I made.”
