Janice Dickinson took aim at Lisa Rinna, 60, during a podcast appearance earlier this month.

While also targeting Rinna’s daughters, Delilah Hamlin, 25, and Amelia Hamlin, 22, and praising Lisa Vanderpump, 62, Janice shaded the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum as rude and claimed Andy Cohen, 55, “took” her idea for Watch What Happens Live after she pitched it to him at Bravo’s studios in New York City.

“Andy Cohen doesn’t like me. I scare Andy Cohen for some reason,” Janice, 68, said of the WWHL host on the July 19 episode of Behind the Velvet Rope With David Yontef.  “I once went up to Andy Cohen to pitch a late-night talk show. And as soon as I left and he took the idea, he ran with it and did late night with Andy Cohen. So, Andy, I have a bone to pick with you. That was my idea.”

“It came on like six months later and I was like, you know what? That was my idea. He’s a tacky queen. Tacky,” she stated, adding “allegedly” to her claims.

Although Janice isn’t a viewer of RHOBH, she said the cast “couldn’t handle” her.

“I would have them, I would have them shriek, and bless them, between the time a leaf fell from a tree. They would shake and quiver,” she suggested. “I could mark them and get them where they breathe and you know what? They’re all easy. They’re easy shots, but they pretend to be so uppity. And they’re not uppity.”

“They’re just hags,” she continued.

That said, she is a fan of Vanderpump, saying she “[loves]” her and that she’s “fabulous.”

“We see her at [PUMP Restaurant Lounge] in West Hollywood, California, and we see her always dressed to the nines with that little dog. And that husband [Ken Todd]. So fabulous. Really. Cocktail rings on every finger.”

Moving on to Delilah and Amelia, Janice said, “They’re not supermodels. [But] they have a handsome father [Harry Hamlin].” She added that “they don’t come close to Gigi Hadid.”

While Janice previously shaded Gigi Hadid, 28, and Bella Hadid, 26, she’s since had a change of heart, stating that the model daughters of RHOBH alum Yolanda Hadid have proven themselves.

“They have long longevity because when I saw a picture of Gigi Hadid the other day with her hair all pulled back, tight, bald, and then she, they plopped a wig on her bald head and it was all balled up the side, and kind of like balding eyebrows. She looked alienesque and I really appreciated what went into that photo shoot,” Janice explained. “She looked amazing. And it takes this type of love for being in front of the camera to portray being an alien. And her sister is always ethereal. Bella … She gets hired like every hour of the day and night for being fabulous.”

As for her past encounters with Rinna, Janice described her as a rude neighbor.

“She used to be my neighbor … She’d drive by me, you know, once or twice a week. And I’d say, ‘Hi, Lisa.’ I never invited her in [because] my house was like always messy … [And] she never invited me to her house either for a cup of coffee or a shot or two of tequila … She dissed me,” Janice revealed.

According to Janice, Rinna refused to say “hello” to her.

“I was like, ‘Hi, Lisa.’ I went up to her to say, ‘Hi,’ you know to just be like friendly. And she was like, with her lips. First the lips came at me. She was not nice,” Janice shared. “And I was like, ‘No, you can’t be like that with me because… this will follow you forever.'”

Julie Andrews wasn’t nice to me once … Now she can’t get a guy now in her 80s,” she added.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 13 is expected to begin airing on Bravo sometime this fall.
