Despite criticism from her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-stars for not eating, slender Lisa Rinna was seen enjoying a healthy meal while out to brunch with husband Harry Hamlin.
DailyMail.com spotted Lisa, 59, and Harry, 71, arriving at the Beverly Glen Deli around 1pm on Saturday and waiting nearly 40 minutes to get seated.
The wait appeared to be worth it, as these exclusive photos show Lisa scarfing down eggs and toast, leaving her plate nearly empty, and sipping on a latte.
The topic of her eating habits has come into the spotlight after her co-stars and fans noticed she seldom eats on the reality show and instead plays with her food, claiming it’s in an effort to stay thin, which Lisa has denied.
But her Saturday brunch date proved that’s not the case, and she and Harry left the brunch quite satisfied.
