Lisa Rinna leaves The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
The longtime reality star confirmed this departure on Thursday night, saying via a statement:
“This is the longest work of my 35-year career, and I am grateful to everyone at Bravo and everyone involved in the series.
It’s possible that quite a few Bravo viewers responded to the news with a standing ovation… considering the drama surrounding Rinna last season on the show and the controversy she sparked on social media this summer.
Rinna was even booed on stage at BravoCon 2022 a few months ago.
“For God’s sake, it’s a TV show,” she told People magazine in response to this negativity.
“Call it what you want, believe what you want, I tell the truth. Always have. Get back to it.”
Despite the recent backlash against Rinna, at least one person seems to be sad to see Rinna go.
Following Rinna’s decision to leave the beloved franchise, Andy Cohen shared a cartoon celebrating Rinna’s signature lip and most famous show moments.
“Iconic running,” Cohen captioned the image by Instagram user DrunkDrawn.

For the record, Rinna’s contract expired at the end of the latest season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
According to People magazine, which broke the news of Lisa’s departure, the star weighed “her options and business obligations” and “she and Bravo have mutually decided that she will not return to RHOBH.”
In the wake of the announcement, Rinna’s former castmate Lisa Vanderpump (who accused Rinna of adjusting the storyline in 2019) threw shade at the actress with a simple tweet that read “ding dong.” It seems that.

Rinna joined the franchise in the fifth season, which premiered in 2014.

It’s a bull—. I do not accept it.
“I will always express myself in any way. I am not afraid of your hoes.”
Rinna eventually apologized fully for her actions, saying she was going through “really tough times” after the death of her mother, Lois.
“I’m sorry if I offended you. I have nothing to do with you,” she wrote online.
Rinna has yet to elaborate on her exact plans or what she will do next.
Additionally, aside from Cohen and Vanderpump, no one else associated with the franchise has yet commented on the decision.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are set to return with Season 13 later this year.
