After undergoing a lie detector test in hopes of proving that she did not leak a negative story about Dorit Kemsley‘s decision to re-home a dog she adopted from Lisa’s rescue center last year, Lisa spoke of her innocence during a cast confessional and said there are “some things” she “can’t lie about.”
“Just don’t ask me if Erika’s tucking it under, or something like that, because there are some things I can’t lie about,” Lisa stated, citing a practice used by trans women.
Following the comment, a number of people, including Lisa’s co-star, Lisa Rinna, weighed in on Twitter and accused the restaurateur of being transphobic.
“Who knew Lvp was transphobic? Well, we know NOW! #LBGTQ,” Lisa R. tweeted.

“Oof. Making transphobic jokes is soooo not cool, even if you are someone who does a lot for the LGBTQ+ community. Know better. Be better,” said People magazine writer Dave Quinn.
“Or maybe transphobic jokes is just part of that British humor thing she talks about all the time?” he added in a second tweet.
Candis Cayne, a transgender actress who has been linked to Caitlyn Jenner in recent years, was especially upset by the comment and included a snippet of what Lisa V. said with her tweet.
“Oh come on [Lisa Vanderpump] joking about [Erika Jayne] ‘tucking’ Ugly Trans jokes marginalizing our community are not acceptable. Being an ally doesn’t give you a free pass to make transphobic remarks. Do better,” she wrote.

After seeing Candis’ post, Erika re-tweeted her message. However, because Erika has joked about having a “d**k” on so many occasions, many have suggested she actually prompted Lisa V.’s comment herself.
“Erika’s been talking about her d**k for a loooooong time,” one viewer pointed out, sharing a clip of Erika joking about her d**k being “hard” last season.
