She continued: ‘It has been a fun eight-year run and I am excited for what is to come!’ 

The outlet reported that ‘she and Bravo mutually decided that she would not return to RHOBH’ after her contract expired last season.

In October, she was booed at BravoCon following backlash from fans over saying she would ‘get cancer’ if she didn’t expose Hilton’s ‘vile’ comments on the show’s finale.

When asked by DailyMail.com about her reaction to those calling for her to be fired, the mom-of-two said she didn’t know what to think and branded herself a ‘rockstar.’ 

‘We are the number one show on cable, and on television… That’s all I have to say,’ she concluded. 

At the time, Lisa was slammed by cancer survivors and doctors alike after she used the disease as an excuse to spill Hilton’s personal secrets.

Her feud with Hilton seemingly began when Rinna accused Hilton of attacking her sister Kyle Richards during a ‘psychotic break.’ 

During the 3-part RHOBH reunion, that aired on October 12, Hilton called Rina ‘the biggest bully in Hollywood.’

Previously, she got into a massive fight with Hilton’s sister Kim Richards over dinner, which resulted in her hurling a wine glass at Kim, who threatened to say something unkind about her husband, Harry Hamlin.

Additionally, she accused Yolanda Hadid, who was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2012, of having Munchausen syndrome on RHOBH season 5. 

Rinna has since apologized and said the claim ‘was very wrong, on all levels.’

In 2020, she also had a public falling out with Denise Richards, who starred on two seasons of RHOBH, after two decades of friendship.

While she will not be returning to RHOBH, which is currently on hiatus after a heavy season, Rinna recently revealed she ‘booked a movie role.’

The last time she played a role other than herself was in 2021, when she appeared in the Days Of Our Lives: Beyond Salem miniseries. 

She appeared in five episodes of the spinoff that is now streaming exclusively on Peacock. 

Previously, the actress-turned-entrepreneur rose to fame by playing the role of Billie Reed on the drama sitcom Days Of Our Lives.
