Lisa Rinna has made amends with the Real Housewives of Dubai cast following a tense social media feud days ago.
After sharing a seemingly offensive post, pointing to how she’s labeled a racist when she goes against Garcelle Beauvais, the only full-time Black cast member, on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and appearing to suggest RHODubai is more problematic, Lisa took to her Twitter page to confirm that she reached out to several of the show’s stars.
“I’ve heard from a lot of you over the last week about some comments I made on my Instagram Story,” Lisa began in a statement shared on Twitter. “I never meant for them to be interpreted the way they have been, but I truly appreciate you all reaching out.”
“I just had the opportunity to have a lovely chat with Caroline Brooks. Caroline, thank you for the open dialogue and conversation. I have the utmost respect for all of the ladies on [RHODubai]. And I can’t wait to officially meet you, Caroline!” she declared.
Following the post, Caroline responded with a series of posts, confirming Lisa apologized
“Lisa Rinna called me and apologized for what she said and explained that she didn’t mean for her post to be an attack on [RHODubai],” Caroline tweeted. “She explained in detail what she meant and that she was, watch [RHODubai] instead of [RHOBH] if [you] don’t like her or are bothered by her or their show.”
“Also to clarify,” she continued, “I don’t [watch] The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills because it doesn’t air in Dubai.But I’ve seen clips. Accepting Lisa’s apology for the reference she made to our show doesn’t excuse bad behavior by any means… I’m speaking only to what she said about us.”
Caroline also said, “We are all entitled to our feelings so I totally understand if some of you aren’t ready to forgive and move on. I certainly encourage you to though because holding a grudge and hate is too strong of a burden to carry… I explained how we felt by that post and why it could be taken differently based on how it was written and she apologized. I don’t hold grudges. I’m an adult and if someone says sorry [then] I forgive and move on if I feel it’s something I can get past.”
Caroline also reacted on her Instagram Story, sharing a screenshot of Lisa’s post and saying she’s ready to “move past” their drama.
“We had a lovely chat and I’m so happy you clarified what you meant in your post last week. I’m happy to move forward and move past it,” Caroline stated. “Thank you for reaching out and I’m looking forward to meeting you soon. Have a great weekend [Lisa Rinna].”
Also on Twitter, the RHOBH cast member confirmed she had spoken with both Chanel Ayan and Lesa Milan.
“Lovely speaking with you [Chanel Ayan]. Can’t wait to meet you,” Lisa wrote in a post.
She then said in a second message, “Lovely just speaking with you as well [Lesa Milan].”
“Likewise, lovely speaking to you,” Lesa replied.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 12 airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
