Tuesday’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was filled with difficult goodbyes.

Lisa Rinnareturned to her childhood hometown of Medford, Oregon, to visit her aging, ailing parents and say goodbye to the house in which she grew up.

“I just belong in a big city,” said Rinna upon returning to the small town and recalling what it was like to grow up there as a kid. “Why am I here? I’m more fabulous than this.”

But Rinna’s emotions got the better of her when she visited her parents and brought her daughters to see their grandparents.

“I have a lot of guilt being so far away. It’s really, really hard,” she said, adding about her 92-year-old father’s health, “He fights through it because I don’t think he can leave [my mom].”

“She’s my rock,” Rinna’s father, Frank, said about his wife, Lois, whose recent stroke had erased much of her memory.

“My mom is the Rock of Gibraltar. She always had everything together,” said Rinna. “It’s hard not having your parents be young and not full of life.”

Rinna later took her mother to bid a sad farewell to their home.

“The hardest part of selling your home is letting go of your childhood,” said Rinna, who walked around the empty house with her mother and looked through mementos. “What I’m realizing now is that I’m the adult. I’m taking care of my parents. You never prepare for that.”

“I can’t imagine I’m not going to be seeing it again,” her mother said before beginning to cry. “Let somebody else have this nice house.”

‘Lisa’s a very stubborn individual’

Lisa Vanderpump wanted somebody else to have her ex-BFF Brandi Glanville.

“Lisa’s a very stubborn individual,” said Glanville about their fractured friendship at a Beverly Hills BBQ hosted by Kyle Richards. “I’m attracted to the challenge. I want what I can’t have.”

Turns out she can’t have an easy reconciliation, as Vanderpump continued to be upset that the wives turned on her in Puerto Rico last season.

“We have a way to go before I’m warming her house or her slippers,” said Vanderpump, after Glanville asked if she would be attending her upcoming housewarming party. “I’m the same horrible person she went running around telling everyone about.”

“Every time I see them, I get teary,” said Glanville, who received an icy smooch from Vanderpump’s husband, Ken Todd. “It’s going to take some time. I’m not going to kiss her ass forever.”

“The only thing Lisa holds onto more than Giggy is a grudge,” concluded Richards. “Good luck, Brandi.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Tuesdays, 9 p.m. ET, on Bravo.
