Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna is being slammed by cancer survivors and doctors alike after she used the disease as an excuse to spill Kathy Hilton’s personal secrets.

The reality star, 59, is facing furious fire after she claimed that she’d ‘get cancer’ if she didn’t expose her castmate’s ‘vile’ comments.

In the final episode of season 12, which aired on October 5, Rinna was discussing a previous meltdown Hilton, 63, had during a trip they had taken to Aspen together, when Kyle Richards told her it was time to move on.

But Rinna then explained that Hilton told her things off-camera about the other castmates that could ‘ruin their lives forever’ – and that holding them in was going to make her ‘sick.’

‘I’m not gonna take it to my grave because I’d get sick and I’d get cancer if I didn’t express this,’ she said.

'I¿m not gonna take it to my grave because I¿d get sick and I¿d get cancer if I didn¿t express this,' she said.'That¿s how bad it is. To have these kinds of things go on and not express them, I¿ll get sick and die because it¿s that vile'

‘That’s how bad it is. To have these kinds of things go on and not express them, I’ll get sick and die because it’s that vile.’

Many of her costars were stunned by her statement; Diana Jenkins asked the camera privately, ‘Did she really say that?’ while Garcelle Beauvais added, ‘Oh my God it’s so dramatic.’

Many viewers were also left unhappy, and they took to Twitter to share their dismay.

One woman, who has a three-year-old daughter with leukemia, called Rinna’s comment ‘hurtful and horrendous,’ while another, who lost their mom to the disease, said she was ‘disgusted to her core.’

A third user said it was an ‘insult to everyone who has been sick with cancer,’ and someone else wrote that it was ‘the most wild thing they had ever seen on the show.’

Backlash: Many viewers were unhappy with her statement, and they took to Twitter to share their dismay, calling for her to be'canceled' or removed from the show

‘What a disgusting thing for Lisa to say, an insult to every Cancer victim,’ read another tweet. 

‘I know Lisa Rinna didn’t just say, “If I don’t talk about Kathy Hilton, I’ll get sick with cancer and die.” What is wrong with this woman?’ asked someone else. 

‘Rinna saying if she didn’t get her anger out it would be a cancer and she would die is SO DISGUSTING,’ agreed another person.

‘What an insensitive slap in the face to those who have dealt with or are dealing with cancer and to those who have lost loved ones to cancer. She’s vile.’

‘Shame on you @LisaRinna for saying you might get cancer if you don’t tell the Kathy story. As a cancer survivor, who went through two years of treatment and am now permanently scarred, I found your words offensive,’ wrote a different user.

Others called for her to be ‘canceled’ or removed from the show, with a different user tweeting, ‘How has she not been completely canceled yet? Disgraceful.’

‘If they bring back Lisa Rinna next season I will die… I will get cancer and I will die,’ said someone else. 

The American Institute for Cancer Research even ridiculed Rinna, with a rep blasting the reality star to TMZ for ‘using the specter of cancer as emotional blackmail to justify airing her grievance’ in a statement.

The organization added that there’s no evidence to support a link between stress and the disease, and that her claim was ‘certainly not based on reputable research.’ 

RHOBH alum Camille Grammer, who was diagnosed with Stage 2 endometrial cancer in 2013 and underwent a hysterectomy, said Rinna’s comment was in ‘poor taste,’ and called her ‘pathetic’ in a scathing Twitter post.

‘I had cancer,’ she replied to a fan who asked her thoughts on the matter. ‘I thought this was in poor taste. Pathetic.’

In a previous episode, Lisa stated that her fight with Hilton resulted in her suffering from ‘PTSD.’

She claimed that Hilton screamed at her, threw her glasses, jumped up and down while pounding the walls, and threatened to take NBC and Bravo, as well as her fellow castmates, down. 

‘It’s hard to get past what I had just been through with Kathy. I am very, very in shock still. And I am putting on a brave face because I feel PTSD,’ she said. 

She recalled in a separate part of the episode: ‘She takes her glasses off, she throws them on the ground, she’s jumping up and down, breaking her glasses. 

‘She’s pounding the walls and she’s screaming … She’s saying things like, “I’m going to take down NBC, Bravo. I will take down this show singlehandedly. I will f**king ruin you all.”‘

This certainly isn’t the first time that Rinna has been slammed for her comments in the show; back in 2016, she came under fire after she accused her then-castmate Yolanda Hadid of lying about her Lyme disease diagnosis.

Hadid found out she was suffering from the tick-borne illness in 2012, but in season six of ROBH, it came to light that Rinna didn’t believe her.

Rinna even accused Hadid of having Munchausen syndrome, a mental condition in which someone falsely believes he or she is physically ill.

At the time, Hadid told Rinna that her accusation was ‘the biggest f**king blow she’s ever had in her life,’ and that ‘sorry was not enough.’
