Why RHOBH Fans Are Convinced That Lisa Rinna Was Fired & Didn’t Quit

Lisa Rinna has given up her diamond ahead of RHOBH season 13, but fans think that Lisa’s announcement left out one small detail: that she was fired.

Lisa Rinna’s time on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has finally come to an end, but while she says she voluntarily left the series, fans believe that Lisa was actually kicked to the curb. When Lisa and Eileen Davidson became Bravo’s newest housewives for RHOBH season 5, viewers initially welcomed them with open arms, especially after their infamous fight with Kim Richards in Amsterdam. While Eileen only lasted through RHOBH season 7, Lisa’s exposure continued to grow as she feuded with more women and solidified close friendships with Kyle Richards and Erika Jayne.


Despite her strong trajectory, Lisa found herself on thin ice with viewers by the time RHOBH season 12 premiered in mid-2022. Between her on-and-off camera meltdowns and bullish behavior towards Sutton Stracke and Kyle’s sister Kathy Hilton, fans overwhelmingly agreed that Lisa did not deserve to return for RHOBH season 13. This wish finally came true for many when Lisa confirmed that RHOBH season 12 would be her last in early January; Lisa’s short-lived co-star Diana Jenkins also announced her exit just days later. Although Lisa has claimed she walked away from the hit Bravo series after eight years, fans think that Bravo ultimately brought the ax down on Lisa’s housewife stint.

Lisa Rinna Baited RHOBH Producers To “Put Her On Pause”

At the RHOBH season 12 reunion last October, Kathy, who has been compared to Jennifer Coolidge, revealed two interesting tidbits when she and Lisa finally came face-to-face: Lisa was not only the “biggest bully in Hollywood” but allegedly fostered storylines because her contract was about to expire. Lisa later confirmed that her contract with Bravo did end after RHOBH season 12, but Reddit users believe that Lisa was quietly fired after she taunted executive producer Andy Cohen to “put her on pause” at the reunion. “Rinna was so firmly entrenched in her contempt and bitterness, how exactly were producers supposed to redeem her?” one Reddit user wrote after u/sunnyd889 shared screenshots of Lisa’s Instagram Stories. “[Lisa] was getting in the way of production and interfering too much in storylines outside the show,” another RHOBH fan commented.

Lisa Rinna Has Bashed RHOBH Non-Stop Since Her Exit

While her social media posts prove that Lisa didn’t part ways with RHOBH as amicably as they claim, Lisa’s recent comments to the press are a clear indicator to RHOBH fans that she was fired after the controversy she generated last season. Although Lisa told Interview Magazine that she left the series because she “f****** hated” being a housewife and reiterated that she was edited unfavorably, Reddit users like u/hennycabbagehead believe that Lisa would never willingly let go of the housewives’ six-figure salary. Several RHOBH fans predicted that Lisa will eventually make her way to other reality shows like Marriage Boot Camp, while another commented that Lisa would easily join a future season of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip if asked.

Whether Lisa decided to quit the series after RHOBH season 12 or was fired behind the scenes, there’s no doubt that her departure will be felt when RHOBH season 13 premieres. Although Diana and Lisa won’t be around to support Erika, rumors that multiple former housewives like Kim, Brandi Glanville, and fan favorite Lisa Vanderpump have been approached to take their diamonds back have circulated for months. While The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 13 is still a long ways away, the long-awaited cast shakeup has only just begun.
