Lisa Rinna, popularly known as a central cast member on Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” is speaking out against the franchise for not paying her deceased mother proper respects.
It should be noted that her mom, Lois Rinna, was featured in the reality show franchise and sadly passed last year after suffering a stroke.
The veteran personality is survived by several, including her daughter, who recently lashed out at “RHOBH” for not recognizing or displaying enough of how the loss of Lois affected her.
Lisa Rinna Says Her Mother Deserved So Much More From “RHOBH”
Lisa shared a since-expired post on her Instagram Story showing a throwback photo of herself with her mother, accompanied by a message stressing the hypocrisy of “RHOBH.” The words read:
“I’m shocked we spent 3 episodes about the word dark, but only few scenes shown on real human grief.”
Based on the note, the actress added, she got “one episode” of acknowledgment of her mother’s demise but believed Lois deserved much more.
She expressed her disappointment in the show franchise by concluding her message with “Shame on everyone,” possibly directed at “RHOBH.”
The throwback photo in her post was a repost from another Instagram update from The Pink Pop Box podcast revealing how the Bravo production only broadcast “mere moments” about the loss of Lisa’s mother out of its multiple episodes.
Additionally, the podcast brand pointed out the discrepancy between the production airing what they believed was relevant and what was actually happening in the housewives’ lives.
They noted that insubstantial periods of Lois’ passing and how it impacted Lisa were shown in the series. At the same time, the past nine episodes centered on less grievous matters such as worrying about dinner tables.

The update further stressed that the passing of a known, loved one may not be a popular topic for discussion, but it was real and is the truth of the reality stars’ lives.
“RHOBH” seemingly chose to give fans the “most superficial sensationalized edit” compared to last year when it was rated as good due to its honesty, darkness, and authenticity.
The unnamed podcast host then described this year’s reality episodes, saying two housewives were trying to take control of the whole group’s narrative and “spin it into their own” for their benefit.
They voiced their disbelief about the strategy working and wrote that it would “backfire” on the said ladies in due time, or they could be wrong.
Fans had quite the reactions to the post, including Lisa, who penned her appreciation and was replied with multiple red heart emojis.
Last month, The Blast shared that Lisa had to relive her mother’s death while opening up about her grief experience.
She previously reflected on the experience with a candid note ahead of the show’s episode about her mother’s demise, showing that she was not anticipating the remembrance. The “Melrose Place” actress stated:
“Grief is a tricky little devil. In a week or so, my mom will pass on the show, and I am not looking forward to reliving this, but I am trying to accept what is…”

She further spoke about her emotions being at odds during her personal grieving period and feeling strange about disclosing her grief on the show; however, she was glad to share the experience with the world.
The “Innovation” Author Apologizes For Racially Insensitive Remarks Amid Grieving Period
Earlier this month, The Blast reported that Lisa made several racially insensitive comments but apologized for the remarks via a brief message, using grief as an excuse.
Her apologetic statement read, “I have had a really rough time of it. I think you’ve seen how hard this has hit me. I’m sorry if I’ve raged on you, about you – it really has nothing to do with any of you.”
The apology was accompanied by a quote about the difficulties associated with overcoming despair, indicating that grief never ended and was not a price of weakness but was the price of love.
As the eight-month anniversary of Lois’ death drew nearer at the time, the “DWTS” star got candid about how badly she processed the loss.
She pointed out that grief was not just about sadness or pain but was “so much more,” and she knew she would get through it and come out stronger than ever.
