1. Kim Richards Accuses Hamlin of Cheating on Rinna on Season 5 of RHOBH
According to Radar Online, Kim Richards made claims that Lisa Rinna’s husband had cheated on her. Radar reported on November 5, 2014:
According to an inside source, Rinna flipped out when Kim accused her husband, Harry Hamlin, of cheating … “Kim had heard rumors for awhile that Lisa Rinna’s husband, Harry had been unfaithful,” a source told Radar. “Upon hearing the claim, Lisa went nuts, and immediately lunged at Kim. There are certain things that are just off limits as far as Lisa is concerned, and Harry is on that list.”
Apparently, the claims came after Lisa had become suspicious that Kim had “fallen off the wagon” and was drinking again. Rina reportedly threw her drink in Kim’s face and had to be restrained by cast mates. You can watch some of the scene play out in the above video clip.

In September, Hamlin, who is linked with Knots Landing’s resident tease, Nicollette Sheridan, 26, filed for divorce from Johnson, citing irreconcilable differences. But only recently did it become clear just how different those differences were. In court papers containing some of the most vitriolic marital invective in recent Hollywood memory, Johnson alleges that Hamlin, in the months since filing for divorce, emotionally abused and harassed her, interfered with her acting career and called her “a slut” and “a whore.” For his part, Hamlin has insisted that “I have made every effort to conduct myself honorably…throughout these proceedings.”
Johnson spoke with People and this is what the magazine wrote:
The final straw came on Jan. 8, she alleges, when she discovered that Sheridan had been in her bedroom, bath and closets while she was out of town. “When I confronted Harry about this,” she says, “he said, ‘I have no control over Nicollette when she is in this house. If she wants to go into your bedroom, I can’t stop her.’ ” Instead of attempting “to calm me down…Harry even took out a tape recorder to try to record my emotional breakdown.”
