A source close to Lisa Rinna spoke out after a picture of Harry Hamlin and his daughter Delilah Belle was shared on social media and completely torn up by Real Housewives fans.
The picture was taken just prior to the October 26, 2022 reunion episode “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” shared by a Bravo fan account on Instagram. The picture was taken at the PRISCAVera fashion show in New York City in September 2022 and showed Hamlin hugging his daughter with his nose nestled on her cheek.
Several “Real Housewives” fans commented on the picture, using adjectives like “creepy”, “disturbing” and “awkward” to describe it. Apparently, Rinna found those comments “disgusting,” according to a source who spoke to Page Six.
Here’s what you need to know:
The source offered an explanation for the photo
While several people slammed the image of Hamlin and his daughter, a source told Page Six that there was actually a little story behind the pose.
“He’s a proud dad who was about to whisper in her ear how proud he is of her,” the source explained, adding that Rinna was just “disgusted” by the feedback.
The outlet also spoke to photographer Manny Carabel, who said the photo was “completely taken out of context.”
“Since Delilah has a history as a model, she immediately started striking a pose, if you will, while Harry innocently posed next to her [a position] He thought it would complement her best, as any father would,” Carabel told Page Six.
“No way were [Harry’s] Movements or behavior flirtatious, inappropriate or anything that deviates from being a loving father,” he added.
The comments section of Page Six’s article filled with additional criticism.
“It’s creepy no matter how you try to explain it!” wrote one reader.
“Icky on every level,” said someone else.
Rinna had a tough RHOBH season
It seems that criticism of the photo of Hamlin and his daughter was fueled by Rinna’s tough Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season. Several fans of the show have expressed frustration with the soap opera star who seemed to cause some drama, especially towards the end of the season.
Rinna’s epic showdown with co-star Kathy Hilton left a bad taste in many mouths, including those of her co-stars. For example, Sutton Stracke recently called Rinna’s behavior on the show “disgusting.”
“I just wish it would stop. I don’t think it does anyone justice. I think it just hurts everyone and I think it makes us all look bad. Just let it stop,” said Stracke in Page Six’s Virtual Reali-Tea podcast.
Additionally, for the past few months, fans have been demanding that Rinna be fired from Bravo. Social media was buzzing with chatter about the reality star losing her diamond after season 12, and it was even a topic Andy Cohen brought up at BravoCon 2022.
When someone asked Cohen if Rinna could be “fired,” he replied, “Let’s play the reunion and then everyone regroup.” No casting decisions have been confirmed for season 13.
