Lisa Rinna Says ‘Devil’ Kathy Hilton Caused Her ‘PTSD’

She’s been to hell and back.

Lisa Rinna compared Kathy Hilton to Satan on Wednesday’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” — even claiming the latter’s Aspen tirade triggered a level of “PTSD.”

“I’m happy to be here for Crystal,” said Rinna, 59, in a confessional, referring to Crystal Kung Minkoff’s 1920s-themed birthday party.

“But it’s hard to get past what I just went through with Kathy. I am still very much in shock. And I put on a brave face because I feel PTSD.”

Earlier in the episode, the cast of “RHOBH” shared their stories about the breakdown of Hilton’s girls’ trip.

Sutton Stracke claimed the 63-year-old socialite became furious after her attempts to create a conga line at the members-only Caribou Club were ignored. Subsequently, Kyle Richards claimed that Hilton demanded that her younger sister leave the club with her.

Rinna claimed that during their trip to Aspen, Hilton said scornful things about sister Kyle Richards – and the rest of the “RHOBH” cast.

After Richards, 53, refused, Hilton reportedly became angrier, prompting Rinna to return her to Richards’ ski lodge in Colorado. That’s when Rinna reportedly got in touch with Hilton’s dark side.

“We get in the sprinter van and Kathy just starts yelling about everything, and she says things like, ‘I’m going to take down NBC, Bravo. I’ll take this show down on my own. I’ll ruin you all.’ What the hell?” the former soap actress said in a confession.

“We’re going back to Kyle’s house and it’s just the two of us and it’s getting worse.”

Rinna further claimed that Hilton spoke contemptuously of Richards, with whom she had previously been out of contact for an extended period of time due to family quarrels. The sisters have worked hard over the past few years to rebuild their relationship.

“She takes off her glasses, she throws them on the floor, she jumps up and down and breaks her glasses. She bangs on the walls and she screams [that] she made Kyle, Kathy is responsible for Kyle,” Rinna claimed. “And she said, ‘I’ll destroy Kyle and her family if this is the last thing I ever do.'”

“I’ve seen the devil,” Rinna said. “And her name is Kathy Hilton.”

After the outburst, Rinna said she was “surprised” to see Hilton show up for Kung Minkoff’s celebration.

“I didn’t think she would show up and she’s dressed down to the last detail like nothing ever happened. It’s so damn weird,” she told the camera. “It’s unbearably hard to watch Kathy sit and pretend nothing happened.”

Rinna eventually became so uncomfortable in Hilton’s presence that she left Kung Minkoff’s party.

“I am still very upset after what happened in Aspen. I can’t sit here any longer,” she said. “I’m really trying, but I feel like I’ve seen the devil. And her name is Kathy Hilton.”

Rinna acknowledged her decades-long friendship with Hilton, who has enjoyed a glowing reputation among the Hollywood elite for many years.

“I’ve known Kathy for 30 years. This is this polished, loving mother socialite, a pillar of society,” she said, suggesting the facade is starting to fade.

“And to hear all these things come out of her mouth, I can’t believe you would think, feel, or say it — about your own family.”

Elsewhere, Rinna claimed Hilton said hurtful things about the rest of the “Beverly Hills” women. “If these women knew exactly what Kathy said about them, they wouldn’t be really happy about it — I’ll tell you that,” she said. “It’s so f-ked on every level. It’s twisted.”

Meanwhile, Hilton seemed confused about Rinna’s decision to leave Kung Minkoff’s party, writing it down to grief over the death of Rinna’s mother, Lois, in November 2021. (This episode was shot February 2022.)

“I know Lisa has been through a lot losing her mother. And if she has to leave early, that’s her business. I don’t feel like she left because of what I shared with her in Aspen,” Hilton said in a confessional. “She was a sweetheart, she listened and I got no indication that she was upset.”

Hilton and Rinna have known each other for years.

She added: “But if I was this toe that broke the camel’s back, I apologize. I don’t want to upset anyone.”

Rumors of Hilton’s behavior in Aspen started doing the rounds this winter. Her public Instagram plea to her husband, Rick Hilton, to help her get “out” has only fueled fans’ theories about what happened.

However, in a February Instagram Live interview with E! Entertainment, Kathy claimed her alarming comment came after she lost her cell phone.

“I have lost my phone no matter what I do. At one point I was left alone in the house,” she says. “And it was about three o’clock in the morning. My husband puts his phone in his office and I know at about midnight he’s on his iPad, and he’ll scroll through it.”

She continued, “I knew I’d get it by saying, ‘Call me, get me out of here,’ because I had my iPad, 10 percent left, no charger. And I started to get scared, when I heard all the sounds. I didn’t know what to do.”

The next day, Kathy moved out of Richards’ house and moved into the swanky hotel The Little Nell.

She admitted there were “quarrels” on the “RHOBH” Aspen trip, but claimed she stayed out of the drama.

“The girls had a bit of a fight. There were a few minor fights where some people moved out of Kyle’s,” she said, also claiming she was having “the most wonderful time” in Colorado.

Last year, Kathy re-signed her contract as a “friend of” the cast, agreeing to make several appearances in Season 12 after reportedly negotiating a higher salary. She had started making appearances on the show for season 11 in October 2020.

“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” airs Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
