RHOBH: Lisa Rinna’s Daughter Delilah Reveals Past Drug Addiction

Delilah Hamlin, the eldest daughter of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna, is opening up about her past addiction to prescription pills. Delilah surprised her fans by taking to Instagram Live and opening up about her experience with substance abuse. Delilah and Lisa's other daughter with husband Harry Hamlin, Amelia, have recently been becoming more public figures with more and more appearances on RHOBH and it seems they are using their new platform as models and reality TV appearances to share about their lives.

Fans will remember that Amelia has opened up in recent seasons of RHOBH about her struggles with an eating disorder, moving fans to rally around her with support. While it has to be difficult to share such personal things on social media or on TV, the girls, who are both models, seem to feel like by sharing their experiences, they can help other people. And they are doing just that.

Delilah explained in a lengthy Instagram video that she was dependent on Xanax and eventually overdosed by accident because she took Benadryl with the pills, as well. Delilah also blamed the doctor who "overprescribed" her with medication that she now realizes was an unnecessary dosage. She reported that he had given her more milligrams per data than she needed and it eventually was out of her control. Delilah also said that she was unhappy and felt "helpless" and "hopeless" about her situation, though she is now doing much better (and even dating Love Island star Eryal Booker).

Delilah found an alternative-to-meds treatment center in Arizona to help her with her addiction. Delilah maintains that she is no longer addicted to the prescription pills and believes that she never would have had to deal with her substance abuse if her doctor had only prescribed her the appropriate amount, whatever that might have been. She credits the rehab center for helping her cut down her Xanax use. "It was amazing. I was super excited to just get cured of everything,” Delilah said. The 23-year-old was having seizures at the center due to pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with streptococcal infections (PANDAs), Epstein-Barr virus, and encephalitis and was eventually asked to leave, but is now doing just fine.

Delilah is still battling her health issues and is asking her followers for help and support.  The influencer also thinks her bout with COVID-19 caused triggered certain autoimmune diseases that she wasn't aware of until it was too late.  Delilah's transparency about her substance use and other medical issues is a testament to how much she seems to want to get more help and heal. It also highlights the more personal issues in Lisa's life that she doesn't share on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
