It’s safe to say Harry Hamlin isn’t a Real Housewives fan—or wasn’t a Real Housewives fan until his wife Lisa Rinna joined the cast.

Rinna discusses her husband’s Housewives disdain with Oprah Winfrey on an upcoming episode of Where Are They Now—you can watch video right here on Popdust.

"Before season five started of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I had a meeting with the producers to do maybe another show," Rinna explains. "What came out of the meeting was, maybe I should do The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

"I thought 'Oh god, Harry’s never gonna go for this'," she continues. "He never will.”

And, she was spot on with her prediction, telling the Big O that Hamlin was so opposed to her signing on to the show that he even threatened her with divorce!

"I’ll divorce you. If you do it, I’ll divorce you,” Rinna recalls him telling her.

"I said, 'Ok, done’. No more conversations, done. Walked out of the room, that was that. I was fine with it."

However, after retreating for a while and thinking it out, Hamlin had a change of mind.

"He comes back to me in like two days, and he said, 'You know, I’ve thought about it, I’ve done some research'," Rinna says. "Harry, being a really, really smart businessman himself, said ‘It’s a good thing, it’ll work for you, you should do it.’ So I did it."

And the rest, as they say, is Housewives history…

We're still a few weeks away from the season five reunion of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but it's already shaping up to be the most explosive reunion in the show's history.

Andy Cohen has called it "super dramatic and emotional" and revealed that a "smoking gun" was revealed at the 11th hour, while Kyle Richards recently told E! that it was "worse than Amsterdam."

Now Beverly Hills' most controversial Housewife Brandi Glanville has thrown in her two cents about the reunion—and as expected, it doesn't sound pretty.

"I have post traumatic reunion syndrome. I'm telling you, I don't think I was on my best behavior that day," Brandi told her friend and Celebrity Apprentice co-star Leeza Gibbons on the latest episode of her podcast.

"Isn't that when it would pay to be an actress, when you could just put on a character?" asked Gibbons.

"Well let's ask Lisa Rinna, because that's what she did," Brandi quipped back.

Brandi continued, "You want to fight the fight, and I went in there saying 'I'm going to be quiet the whole time. I'm not giving them anything,' and then I lost my temper. And it was craziness. Like crazy. But having said that, I've gotta own what I did and said."

Even Lisa Vanderpump has commented that Brandi came off badly on the reunion, tweeting last month: "She didn't do well at the reunion for sure."

Besides Brandi, the feuding Kim Richards and Lisa Rinna reportedly get into another "vicious" physical fight on the RHOBH finale and then in an "intense" shouting match at the reunion.

Andy has already revealed that the reunion taping was the first time that Kim and Kyle had spoken to each other in four months, while TMZ is reporting that there's "little hope" of a reconciliation between the two sisters.

Holy cow. This reunion is going to be horrible amazing!

They say that art is in the eye of the beholder, which may be the only way to explain why Harry Hamlin has labelled The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills "art" instead of a trashy reality show about rich ladies who argue about petty nonsense over wine-soaked dinners.

Harry also believes that his wife (and RHOBH's newest cast member) Lisa Rinna has brought some much-needed class to the series. (Because screaming "Don't you EVER go near my fuckin' husband!" in the middle of a restaurant while smashing a wine glass is really elegant and sophisticated behaviour.)

"Well, you know, I am [proud] because she’s doing a magnificent job," Hamlin told Us Weekly. "I think she’s bringing some class to a show that is kind of a reflection of who we are today. So in some sense it is art in that respect. I think she’s doing an extraordinary job."

Well, maybe Harry has a point. The Real Housewives have kind of turned squabbling, shade throwing, and hair pulling into some kind of strange art form. No?

Either that, or he's just embarrassed over his wife's latest gig now that he's had a big career comeback thanks to Mad Men, so he's trying to justify the situation by pretending that Lisa has brought class to the artistic sociological experiment known as the Real Housewives franchise.

Lisa Rinna almost paid a very high price for taking part in the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - her marriage!

The actress has been married to Harry Hamlin for 18 years and they have two daughters: Delilah, 16, and Amelia, 13.

When Lisa was offered a spot on RHOBH, Harry, quite understandably, threatened to leave her.

"This is a true story. I went to Harry and said I'm thinking about [doing RHOBH] and he looked at me and said, 'If you do this show, I will divorce you,'" the 51 revealed during Live! with Kelly and Michael on Wednesday. "And I said, 'Okay,' and I walked away and I was done with it."

Lisa, 51, did end up going on the show, but only after Harry, 63, changed his mind and gave her the green light.

"[He said], 'I've thought about this, and I actually think it may be a good idea for you to do it'."

Considering the number of couples who have ended up divorced after taking part in the Real Housewives, can anyone blame Harry for having reservations???

We’re back with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and the drama rages on!

We are thrown back into the very redundant storyline of Kim Richards maybe, or maybe not, being sober anymore. She’s a hot a mess whether she’s back on the booze or not, and these woman are taking every opportunity to let her know that.

Brandi Glanville took a trip to Yolanda Foster’s house in Malibu. Just an FYI—when I die, bury me in this amazeballs house.

Anyhoo, I was quite confused by this visit because, as Popdust previously reported, last episode Brandi accused Yolanda’s 17-year-old daughter of being an alcoholic, which was so strange and super aggressive. Brandi is your typical coward. She gets backed in a corner, gets afraid, and spits fire. Yolanda should have slapped the bitch last week and sent her ass walking down Pacific Coast Highway.

Regardless, it seemed she forgot about it, or just knows that Brandi is batshit crazy. Yolanda asked Brandi to go on a 21 day cleanse, which means no alcohol. Brandi’s calling card is being a drunk lunatic. This cleanse will last for 12 hours max, peeps.

Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump discussed the current situation with Kim. The ladies sipped tea and both agreed that Brandi plays a big role in Kim’s current situation—whatever it may be. Lisa still hates Brandi, so she happily takes any opportunity to blame something on her. In Brandi’s defense, she truly is all these bitches talk about. If Brandi didn’t get hammered and act a fool I’m afraid the show would be a bunch of middle aged woman discussing their latest trip to Bed Bath and Beyond.

Eileen Davidson was having dinner with her husband, Eddie. These two have been married for like 100 years, but they’re still pretty awkward. I definitely took a walk to the kitchen during this snooze fest scene. Eddie wrote a screenplay and wanted all of Eileen’s actress friends to come do a table read. Actress is a very loose term in LA…

Lisa Rinna and Queen Vanderpump rode together to Eileen’s house for the table read. Rinna is still hell bent that Kim is back on the booze train. She thinks it might be a good idea to stage an intervention. It’s honestly cute that these loonies think their interventions ever A) go well and B) come from a good place.

Despite her slight obsession with Kim’s past addict ways, I do genuinely think Lisa Rinna is concerned for her. Vanderpump wants no parts in said intervention however—and I can’t blame her. These bitches are cray cray.

Brandi was at the beach with her gorgeous BFF, Jennifer Gimenez. She is a recovering addict and has been sober for many years, so she was the perfect person to discuss Kim’s current situation with. Ironically enough, Ken called Brandi to invite her to Lisa’s upcoming birthday party. He seemed SO thrilled about it. If he had the choice between willingly spending an evening with Brandi or playing in oncoming traffic, homeboy would be front and center on Sunset Blvd.

Cut to Eileen’s house for the table read. All the ladies are there, minus Brandi and Yolanda. Yolanda was at home taking her 65 vitamins and planning a scavenger hunt. Another day in the life. Back at the table read and it’s a beautiful fucking train wreck. These women truly believe that they are all Oscar winning actresses. Kim was playing with a puppet. God bless her.

Brandi and Kim were en route to Lisa’s birthday party. They brought along Paris Hilton's mom, Kathy, who looked like she would have rather spent her evening in an electric chair. The party looked pretty odd because other than Mohammed, Queen Vanderpump’s bestie, there were only Real Housewives in attendance. Ken and Lisa were on their way to the party. Lisa thought they were headed to Chateau Marmont, but Ken insisted there was an issue at Pump that they needed to deal with before. Much to her surprise, she walked into a surprise party full of Botoxed plastic surgeried psychopaths.

Lisa gave a speech thanking everyone but Brandi for coming—but, when she got back from the ladies room, Lisa asked her to sing a song because she knows she hates doing so. Brandi sang and it sounded like a dying animal. Then, the rest of the women got up for a stab at a potential American Idol audition. Now all of the women were singing and I wanted to hurt myself. Brandi called them the “Menopause Mamas”. Spot fucking on.

Next week - looks like more Kim drama!

Don't miss The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Tuesdays at 9pm on Bravo.

After last week’s shit show, the new episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills started with the aftermath of Kyle Richards' disastrous gay mixer.

It’s no surprise that Kyle and her sister Kim Richards have a roller coaster relationship—Kim brought Brandi Glanville, who was completely uninvited might we add, to her party. Kyle rightfully had a bitch fit and all hell broke loose. While we don’t want to accuse Kim of using drugs or alcohol again, she has seemed a bit off the past few episodes.

Shock Announcement? David And Yolanda Foster Divorce

Kyle and Kim got into a screaming match at the mixer because Kim consistently keeps defending Brandi. It is clear as day that Brandi is simply trying to drive a wedge between the two sisters, but no one can seem to figure out why.

Lisa Rinna is hell-bent that she cracked the code on why Kim is acting strange. She is determined to let the world know Kim is an addict and that it is the root of the problem between her and Kyle. While everyone with a few functioning brain cells could figure that out, she has decided to be a bit more vocal about it.

Meanwhile, Eileen Davidson invited some of the bitches to the Burbank Film Festival for the premiere of a film she did. I cannot. I just cannot. This festival could have been held in my back yard. Eileen walked the “red carpet”—and by red carpet I mean a small red bathroom rug. Mind you, Rinna, Lisa Vanderpump, and Kyle were eating hot dogs while this was going down. It was nothing short of a train wreck.

Yolanda Foster invited Brandi over to do yoga. Perhaps she thought this would mellow Brandi out or something. Xanax is always an option too, Mrs. Foster. After they perfected their downward dog and all that bullshit, Yolanda basically told Brandi that she is a drunk asshole. Spot on analysis, champ.

Naturally, Brandi swore she doesn’t have a drinking problem, but did the classic “I’m a grown ass woman and I can drink if I want to” speech. True, but if you act like an uncaged zoo animal when you drink, perhaps you should refrain from doing so.

Yolanda tried to inform Brandi that the girls have been saying how aggressive and angry she is. As we saw a few episodes back, Yolanda’s 17-year-old daughter, Bella, was arrested for a DUI. Brandi decided to say that people have been saying that she is also an alcoholic. I’m telling you peeps—this chick is fit for a strait jacket. Yolanda nearly shit herself. I would have tossed her ass right over that infinity pool into the good ol’ Pacific. Brandi said she doesn’t give a fuck if people start to not like her anymore. Well, baby doll, it’s happening. And quickly.

As if Queen Vanderpump doesn’t already have more money than God, she decided to venture into the alcohol business. She, along with daughter Pandora, have created a line of signature sangria and they were out promoting it. Lisa told Pandora that her son, Max, was interested in finding her biological parents. They both cried in the middle of a grocery store while holding roses and it was bizarre.

Eileen met up with Kim and Kyle for lunch, which should go super well, right? Eileen recently lost her sister, so she truly wanted to help them mend fences. Long story short, they yelled at one another the whole time. Kim truly is off her rocker and Brandi is, without a doubt, the problem.

Meanwhile, Lisa Rinna had coffee with Brandi. Lisa has been Inspector Gadget recently and feels she is cracking the code on all the bullshit antics going down in the 90210. She treads lightly while trying to tell Brandi that she may or may not be an alcoholic. Ballsy, Rinna. If I went to lunch with Brandi I would tape my mouth shut and wear a metal shield.

In a pretty ironic turn of events, Brandi suggested doing an intervention on Kim… I cannot. The great thing about this hot mess of a show is that each woman truly gets more insane than the next.
