Lisa Rinna is facing major backlash after sharing a yoga stretch video of 20-year-old daughter Amelia Gray Hamlin, and with live goats balancing on her. The 57-year-old reality star is fresh from an Instagram update revisiting her and Amelia’s 2019 Goat Yoga Fitness, a workout that looked fun, but now sees users slamming the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star for alleged animal cruelty. Posting for her 2.7 million followers last night, Lisa shared the private class also attended by designer Marc Jacobs. See the video and response below.
Scroll for the video. While Lisa makes headlines for seeing fans worry about her weight and Amelia fronts media outlets for kissing her teens goodbye, it’s now both mom and daughter winding up in the news together.
The former “Melrose Place” actress’ video showed model Amelia flaunting her stunning figure in tight black leggings while on a mat, delivering a bit of a downward dog and with a goat clambering all over her lower back – another was seen on the wooden floor nearby.
Amelia, also wearing a workout jersey and with her hair in a ponytail, briefly turned to face the camera as she smiled. Mom Lisa only offered a goat and heart emoji caption as artist Saweetie’s music played. Quick to leave three hearts was designer Marc Jacobs, but others weren’t so keen.
“The poor goat looks so confused. Ridiculous!!!!” a fan wrote, quickly gaining likes. “Is it not stressing the goat out?” another asked, with a third telling the Rinna Beauty founder to “stop using animals!” More photos after the video.
The comments just kept on coming. “Poor goat,” one fan wrote. Another, meanwhile, asked how “this is a thing.” One fan even said they’d heard the goats “pee on people. It’s goofy.”
Users may have slammed Lisa, but it turns out goat yoga gets the thumbs-up from experts.
“Goat yoga is a form of animal-assisted therapy. In studies, interacting with therapy animals has been shown to boost feel-good neurotransmitters and lower cortisol levels. The goats are left free to interact with yoga practicers, which essentially serves as a happy distraction that allows you to take your mind off whatever is stressing you out,” Refinery29 reports. More photos below.
While many users asked “why” the yoga needed the addition of a goat, not all replies were negative. Amelia left a like, and Lisa also snagged one from celebrity pal and lover of Rinna Beauty, Kelly Ripa. The 50-year-old “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host left the thumbs-up.
Lisa continues to make headlines as the new season of the Bravo series she stars on airs, this as she also flogs the $45 Lip Kits forming part of her December 2020-launched Rinna Beauty brand. Scroll for the bikini snap sparking weight worries.
