AceShowbiz - Lisa Vanderpump angers people with her recent remarks about her "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" co-star Erika Jayne. In the Monday, May 21 episode of the Bravo reality show, the restaurater was asked to prove her innocence after the infamous "Puppygate" scandal by taking a lie detector test.
At one point, Lisa made a comment about Erika which saw her insinuating that she is a transgender. "Just don't ask me if Erika's tucking or something like that because there are some things I can't lie about," the 58-year-old TV personality/restaurateur said while laughing as Vanderpump Dogs executive director John Sessa sat next to her.
People surely didn't take her comments well. One of those who slammed Lisa for her remarks was castmate Lisa Rinna. "Who knew Lvp was transphobic? Well, we know NOW! #LGBTQ," the 55-year-old tweeted.
Meanwhile, Erika didn't personally respond to Lisa's comment. However, she retweeted a tweet from fellow reality star Candis Cayne. Candis tweeted, "Oh come on @lisavanderpump joking about @erikajayne 'tucking' Ugly Trans jokes marginalizing our community are not acceptable. Being an ally doesn't give you a free pass To make transphobic remarks. Do better."
Fans were also coming at Lisa for her remarks as one said, "@LisaVanderpump making the ‘tuck’ comment is AWFUL! A trans woman was murdered in Dallas and you're adding to that transphobia and homophobia that is KILLING the lgbtqa community." Another comment read, "The 'joke' you made in reference to @erikajayne on #RHOBH was in very poor taste not only to her but to the trans community. It wasn't funny! Period. You should know better LVP!"
Lisa has yet to defense herself amid the backlash.
That aside, Lisa was determined to prove her innocence in the "Puppygate" scandal. Her castmates had said that they didn't believe the results, to which Lisa responded, "I don't care what they say, because if I invested in what they said, then the last 15 episodes would have destroyed me, because it s been an endless litany of abuse, of accusations. So, you know what? Onwards and upwards."
