While appearing on Watch What Happens Live Tuesday, Andy Cohen brought up the fact that Rinna, 55, and her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills costars Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave were recently called out by fans for being “too old” to attend Coachella.
In response to the agist comments from the weekend, Rinna fired back by explaining that not only was she attending the music festival with her friends and kids, but she was also making money in the process.
“You know what? Listen, here’s the thing: if I breathe, I get judged at this point,” the star, who rocked a sleek ponytail instead of her usual bob, argued.
“I got paid to go for Amazon — I’m usually there — but I got a check, honey! Honey, I made serious bank by going,” she went on, before turning her attention directly to the camera. “F— you guys, I made serious bank! F— the trolls, f— you, trolls!”
“I’m not kidding… I made a f— fortune,” Rinna added.
“I’m always there for the kids — I’ve been going down for last six years,” she explained, before jokingly bragging, “But guess who made some money this time, honey?”
Over the weekend, Richards, 50, shared a selfie with her RHOBH costars at the music festival and jokingly referred to the ladies as “chaperones.”
One fan, however, appeared to take Richards’ joke to heart and left a mean comment on one of the festival photos, calling out the women’s ages.
“To old for the s– go home grandmas,” the fan wrote in the comments section of Richards’ photo which she posted on Instagram.
“It’s too*,” Richards replied, correcting the troll’s grammar. “And you’re sitting home doing what?”
Fans quickly flooded Richards’ post with supportive comments after the fan interaction, with one commenting “mic drop” to Richards’ response.
“People are really mean sorry about that you guys look fabulous,” another wrote.
Internet trolls aren’t the only thing that Rinna has recently been speaking out about.
On Tuesday’s episode of RHOBH, Rinna got into an argument with Camille Grammer after she defended Supreme Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh as he faced allegations of sexual assault.
Camille argued that she related to the judge because she had seen lies spread about her publicly following her contentious divorce from ex-husband Kelsey Grammer.
“I empathize with what Brett Kavanaugh is going through. I’ve been in that position. I know what it’s like to be wrongfully accused and humiliated all over the world for lies,” Camille said. “It feels horrible to be in that position. I’ve been the victim of a smear campaign and it hurts.”
Rinna, whose mother Lois had nearly been a victim of sexual assault herself, then clapped back at Camille’s response and asked, “Do you not believe her though? Do you not believe this woman?”
“You don’t believe her for getting up in front of the f—ing world and telling this story, and not getting anything out of it, nothing? Camille, she’s a doctor!” she continued. “He’s going to be a judge on our court for the rest of his f—ing life and that is a very big thing.”
After speaking out on the episode, Rinna posted several screenshots on her Instagram Stories Wednesday from fans who had reached out and praised her for sharing her mother’s story.
“To all of the brave souls who have reached out after the episode, we see you, we hear you,” Rinna wrote. “You are not alone. We believe you.”
