After Lisa seemed to get off scot-free because of her involvement in a series of scandals that toppled many other women on the show, former RHOBH Stern and current Vanderpump-Regeln Member is accused of acting as a puppeteer to control the storylines of the Bravo Reality series.
“You thought the best way to get around [control the storyline] it was to reveal those great, powerful, explosive secrets or great gossip moments where other people looked bad so that she could comfort or advise them. But she didn’t want to get her hands dirty, ”said Chris. “She didn’t want to be the one to spread gossip and rumors.”
According to the producer, Lisa had a reputation for “manipulating and dropping her friends” but wanted to “appear different than she really was in front of the camera”.
“In hindsight, Brandi was the first example of Lisa recruiting other people to do her dirty work,” noted Chris.
Meanwhile, in her own testimony for the book, Brandi recalled telling Lisa a secret about Adrienne.
“I learned from someone who worked for Lisa that Adrienne was using a surrogate mother … When I told Lisa, she said, ‘Do you want to say something?’ She continued to wait for it. She clearly wanted me to say something, ”revealed Brandi.
Then, a while later, as the ladies on the show grew increasingly suspicious that Lisa was “providing Radar Online and TMZ intelligence,” Brandi was reused as a pawn for Lisa, who reportedly caused her to spread false rumors Kyle Richards‘ Husband, Mauricio Umansky, was unfaithful.
“When they were in Palm Springs, Brandi kept bringing up the tabloids because Lisa Vanderpump made them do it. Lisa wouldn’t do it herself, ”Chris explained.
Looking back, Rinna admitted: “I was produced without knowing that I was produced.”

“And it also comes out in the book that [Lisa Vanderpump] mastered the whole [Yolanda Hadid] Situation and how I took the bait. She caused everything. I will forever feel sorry for this moment, ”Rinna wrote. “Yolanda did not deserve that and I am very ashamed of it to this day.”
