During the Episode, Rinna Left the Party Early Because She Said She Was Uncomfortable in Kathy Hilton’s Presence
During the episode, Rinna ended up leaving Kung Minkoff’s party early after she said she was too bothered by Kathy Hilton’s presence following her alleged outburst in Aspen, Colorado. “I’m happy to be here for Crystal,” she said in a confessional interview, “But it’s hard to get past what I had just been through with Kathy. I am very, very in shock still. And I am putting on a brave face because I feel PTSD.”
She said she was “surprised” to see Hilton at the birthday party and said it was “difficult” to watch her act like the outburst never happened. “I didn’t think she’d show up and she is decked out to the nines like nothing ever happened,” Rinna said. “It’s so f****** weird. It is excruciatingly difficult to watch Kathy sit and pretend like nothing happened.”
The reality star said she felt so uncomfortable that she decided to leave. “I can’t sit here any longer,” she shared. “I am really trying, but I feel like I have seen the devil. And her name is Kathy Hilton.”
