“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” fans are taking Garcelle Beauvais‘ side in the Lisa Rinna underwear-gate, calling Rinna out for adding to her daughter Amelia Hamlin‘s “body issues.” Over the past several weeks, viewers watched in shock as Garcelle openly talked to Rinna about posting provocative dances in her bra and panties, questioning if Lisa’s videos are contributing to her daughter’s struggle since Amelia has openly spoken out about being anorexic in the past.
On Wednesday night’s episode, it all came to a head when Lisa Rinna talked to Amelia about Garcelle’s comments on-camera.
The conversation began when Amelia told her mom that the month prior marked her one-year anniversary of being 100% anorexia free. That gave Lisa Rinna the opening she was looking for.
“[Garcelle] has brought up a couple of things about whether my posting on Instagram had anything to do with your eating disorder,” Rinna told her 19-year-old daughter. “What would you actually say?”
“I would tell her in the nicest way possible, with all due respect, ‘F— off,’” Amelia replied before seemingly validating Garcelle’s concerns.
Revealing that she’s openly talked about her mother’s tiny frame to her therapist, Amelia admitted that at one time she did feel a certain way about not sharing Rinna’s body type but she’s over it now.
“You just happen to be a really small person. I talked about this with my therapist today. There’s shaming no matter what size you are. You literally cannot be perfect in this world,” Amelia told Lisa, adding, “You’re really not a part of any of my stuff.”
But “RHOBH” fans quickly took to Twitter to claim that Amelia’s reaction proved that Garcelle’s accusations hold some truth. “Ok Amelia literally just confirmed that Garcelle was right. She did blame her mom,” one person tweeted.
“So Amelia basically admitted that Garcelle was right about the correlation. Btw correlation does not equal causation but look how Rinna’s trying to spin it. Smh,” another fan wrote. Someone else commented, “And especially since Amelia responded that Rinna’s very thin body, does actually affect her… which is the exact question Garcelle was getting at.”
“RHOBH” airs on Bravo every Wednesday at 8/9 central.
