A Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is under fire for commenting on season 12 finale Not My Sister’s Keeper.

During the episode, veteran cast member Lisa Rinna explained why she needed to keep speaking about the shocking meltdown Kathy Hilton suffered during a cast trip to Aspen, despite Kyle Richards insisting she had to back off to make peace with her Sister. Rinna went on to say that Hilton said things to her off camera that could “ruin people’s lives forever.”

After several cast members suggested to Rinna that she stop talking about the sisters’ situation, the Rinna beauty founder explained why she couldn’t.

“I’m not going to take it to my grave because I would get sick and get cancer if I didn’t express that,” Rinna said. “It’s that bad. If such things continue and are not expressed, I will become ill and die because it is so abhorrent.”

Multiple confessionals showed Rinna’s co-stars questioning her comment. “Did she really say that?” laughed Diana Jenkins. “Oh my god it’s so dramatic, are we back on ‘Days of Our Lives’?” Garcelle asked Beauvais, referencing Rinna’s past as a soap opera star.

Rinna’s co-stars weren’t the only ones put off by her comment. On social media, the “RHOBH” veteran was ripped off by viewers.

“Rinna’s statement that if she didn’t express her anger it would be cancer and she would die is SO disgusting. What an insensitive slap in the face to those dealing with or dealing with cancer and to those who have lost loved ones to cancer. She’s mean,” one viewer said tweeted.

“To everyone affected by cancer, we are so sorry you had to listen to Rinna’s garbage mouth to further her BS agenda,” another wrote.

According to TMZ, the American Institute for Cancer Research also commented on the shocking comment. A rep told the outlet that Rinna “used the specter of cancer as emotional blackmail to justify her complaint” and that her claim that stress causes cancer is “certainly not based on reputable research.”

Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer also echoed Rinna’s comment that she would get cancer and die if she didn’t share what she knew about Hilton.

While she is no longer on the show, Grammer is a regular “RHOBH” viewer and frequently tweets about the show while watching episodes. After a fan asked Grammer on Twitter what she thought of Rinna when she used the word “cancer” to explain her behavior, Grammer called the move “pathetic.”

“I had cancer, I thought it was distasteful,” Grammer said tweeted. “Pathetic.”

In 2017, Grammer was diagnosed with stage 2 endometrial cancer and underwent a hysterectomy, per Bravo TV. She has also shared updates about her mother’s long battle with multiple types of cancer and has been a longtime advocate for cancer awareness.
