Watch What Happens Live host, Andy Cohen, who was also the brain-trust behind Bravo’s “Real Housewives” franchise took to task last night on his talk show two members of the current season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills – Lisa Rinna (Ex-Billie, DAYS) and Kyle Richards (who also has made guest appearances on DAYS).
If you watched this season of RHOBH, there have been several awkward moments where Rinna and Richards have called their gay friends, “My gays”.
Cohen illustrated this point in a compilation of clips which had Richards referencing, “Everyone in town has four or five gays.” And Rinna saying in a confessional, “I let my gays down.” And that was just for starters!
The host then launched into his “teachable moment” directed towards Rinna and Richards where he said, “Even though some of your friends might be gay, which is great, they are not yours, you do not own them. We are not cattle, we are not purses. And the next time you think of saying, ‘my gays,’ replace with ‘my blacks’ and see how that turns out.”
Lance Bass, who happened to be a guest on WWHL, also took Richards to task for over clips that have aired this season which showed a gay party she threw. Bass related, “It was like if they had leashes on them, basically they’re just prancing around ‘their gays.’”
Watch the clip package after the jump! Then weigh-in … do you find it offensive of how Rinna and Richards spoke of their gay friends? Comment below!
