Bravo reality star Lisa Rinna revealed that she has no problem working with anyone, including her current arch-nemesis, Kathy Hilton. The reality star and Hilton maintained an on and off-screen feud since mid-season 12 of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" when they went on their Aspen trip. 

Rinna accused her co-star of having a breakdown on their way home from a nightclub and bad-mouthing other cast members of the show. She also claimed that Hilton threatened to ruin her sister Kyle Richards and her family. Hilton denied the accusations and claimed Rinna only did it to glean attention.

With little news released concerning season 13 of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," it is not certain if Rinna will make a comeback. The reality star, however, recently disclosed to TMZ that she is down to work with anyone on the reality show, including Hilton. 

Rinna was spotted on her way out of the Beverly Hills Jayde's Market and, per the news outlet, showed that Hilton's prior ultimatum did not affect her. A few weeks ago, Hilton revealed that she had no intention of returning to "RHOBH" next season if Rinna made a comeback. 

When asked if she would return to the show if Hilton showed up, Rinna first laughed off the comment and revealed that there wasn't anyone she couldn't work with.

In an earlier interview with TMZ, Hilton said she would not return for the next season of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" if her feuding partners, Rinna and Erika Jayne, continued on the show. "I'd only be willing to come back if the cast [changed]," she said.

"If it was completely the same, absolutely not. Because I feel they are two bullies that intimidate a lot of the other girls." Hilton added that a number of women in the show had tried standing up to the two women after feeling threatened by them. The reality star likely referred to her cast members, Sutton Stracke and Garcelle Beauvais.

"But most of them, they're not being their authentic self when they're pushed up to the wall, and they're afraid of what those two bullies [will do]," Hilton explained. "Because they're capable of anything."

During the televised "RHOBH" finale, Hilton and Rinna exchanged heated words with each other stemming from the former's alleged breakdown. During the conversation, Hilton accused her co-star of lying in a bid to stay relevant due to her approaching Bravo contract expiration date. 

She went on to call Rinna a bully and said she had bullied several co-stars over the past years. "You fight with everybody," Hilton said. "And you drove Lisa Vanderpump off the show. I mean, the list can go on and on. You are the biggest bully in Hollywood, and everyone knows it."

Hilton reiterated her words after Rinna was booed during the BravoCon weeks earlier. Fans booed her when she got on stage, and Rinna responded by laughing and giving the crowd the finger. Hilton told Extra, "She is a bully. She bullied everybody, and I think that is just the worst."

The issue between Rinna and Hilton began months earlier while on a trip to Aspen. The actress claimed that on their way back from a nightclub, Hilton had a "psychotic breakdown." Rinna said her co-star insulted the entire Bravo, as well as her cast members and even her sister, Richards. 

"I'm still really upset after what happened in Aspen. I can't sit here any longer. I am really trying, but I feel like I have seen the devil. And her name is Kathy Hilton." Rinna said. Hilton allegedly called Stracke and Crystal Kung Minkoff "pieces of sh*t" and said the duo should be fired from "RHOBH."

"If these women knew exactly what Kathy said about them, they wouldn't be real happy about it — I'll tell you that," she said. "It's so f*cked up on every level. It's f*cked up," Rinna added.
