“The World lost a Great Man today……Heaven got a great Angel. I love you Dad,” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star captioned a photo of her dad, posing with her mother in a throwback pic.
Rinna, 52, also shared a photo of herself and her dad on her wedding day as well as an image of one of his paintings.
“One of my Dads beautiful Paintings,” she captioned the pic of a house on a scenic waterfront.

In a 2014 episode of Housewives, Rinna visited the Medford, Oregon home she grew up in, and while she admitted to being happy that she’d left, she also expressed guilt about being so far from her ailing parents.

“I have a lot of guilt being so far away. It’s really, really hard,” she said, adding about her father’s health (when he was 92) “He fought through it because I don’t think he can leave [my mom].
She also added that although she was sad about selling her house, the hardest part was “letting go of your childhood.”
“What I’m realizing now is that I’m the adult,” she said. “I’m taking care of my parents. You never prepare for that.”
