Lisa Rinna pokes fun at THAT awkward row with Kim Richards as she dresses up as stuffed bunny
Lisa Rinna led with humor on Tuesday as she dressed up as a stuffed bunny for the Halloween Kills costume party premiere at the TLC Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles.
Four years after her infamous bunny feud with Kim Richards on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion, she continued to keep the joke alive — though the pair have since bedded their beef.
Following numerous nasty spats shared by the ladies over the course of two seasons, Lisa had attempted to present a peace offering — by way of a stuffed bunny meant for Kim’s grandson in 2017 — which was ultimately gifted back to her on air, as Kim said it ‘didn’t feel like it had good energy.’

The 58-year-old reality star debuted a large pink bunny suit at the Halloween Kills premiere, in support of castmate Kyle Richards (the sister of Kim) who reprised her role as Lindsey Wallace for the first time since 1978.
The movie is the sequel to 2018’s Halloween and the twelfth installment in the Halloween franchise, and also stars Jamie Lee Curtis.
Rinna was seen with character makeup as she posed alongside fellow Beverly Hills housewives Dorit Kemsley, Kathy Hilton (a fringe cast member on the latest season) and Kyle.
Though Lisa’s costume was pink and also included a scary mask — whereas the original stuffed bunny was blue — fans of the hit Bravo franchise couldn’t help but connect it back to the bunny feud.

Last laugh: Though Lisa’s costume was pink — whereas the original stuffed bunny that caused the on-air row was not— the joke was loud and clear for fans of the hit Bravo franchise
The drama between the ladies began in season 5 and seemed to be first fueled by Kim alleging that her husband Harry Hamlin was cheating during a trip to Amsterdam which prompted Lisa to thrown wine at her.
During season 7 things continued to escalate between the pair after Rinna had reportedly told former castmate Eden Sassoon that Kim was ‘close to death’ regarding her use of substances.
Denying it throughout the majority of the season, she eventually came clean to Kim and told her that she doubted her sobriety.
Trying to wipe the slate clean, Rinna decided to bring Kim a peace offering as she presented her with a bunny stuffed animal meant for her grandson.

Bunny-gate: Andy Cohen asked what happened to the bunny that was gifted, prompting Kim to respond: ‘Well Lisa, I brought the bunny because I never gave it to my grandson, cuz it didn’t feel like it had good energy — sorry’
Retorting: After shedding tears over the gift back, Lisa quipped to Kim ‘I think you’re a really sick woman. To do something like that is sick’
Though at the time she seemed to accept it from her, episodes later on the show’s reunion she threw it right back at her which brought Rinna to tears.

A noticeably upset Lisa was moved to tears as Kim continued to say: ‘So I think what I should do is give it to you…and when you are in a better place, maybe you can give it back to me, because right now I don’t think it was given to me with the right energy.’
When the conversation was shifted back to Lisa she said while choked up: ‘I don’t need to explain myself.’

At that point she walked off stage and returned more composed confessing to being embarrassed and telling Kim: ‘I think you’re a really sick woman. To do something like that is sick.’
Following the reunion, ultimately the Bravo artifact ended up where it belonged — in Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live clubhouse.
Years later the ladies reunited at a Halloween party — during which time Rinna was dressed up as Erika Jayne — and used her character as a crutch to confront her.
‘Kim, when you gave Rinna back that bunny, it was really c**ty,’ she said but since the spat the two — who aren’t often in the same room — have put it in the past.
