The former soap actress announced her departure in a statement. “This is the longest job I have held in my 35-year career and I am grateful to everyone at Bravo and all those involved in the series. It has been a fun eight-year run and I am excited for what is to come!” Lisa said.
Kyle Richards remarked, “Lisa brought a lot to the show on her eight years of being on, and regardless of what happened last year — people have very strong feelings about what happened last year — regardless of that, she brought a lot to the show.” She also damaged the relationship between Kyle and her sister Kathy.
People reported that Andy opened up about Lisa’s departure on his SiriusXM show Andy Cohen Live. “First you’ve gotta give props to Lisa Rinna for being, by the way, eight years,” Andy stated. “So this is a reality show, and that is a testament to how compelling Lisa Rinna is to watch on television that she went eight years.”
He continued, “I’ve talked to Tamra [Judge] about this a lot. Tamra, ultimately said to me before she came back to this, she said, ‘You know what? My time away from the show kind of helped me as a person.’ And she said, ‘I think it was actually really positive to leave and get some air and step back,’” Andy explained. “So, I just hope that Lisa will humor us and comes back.”
I think LVP’s comment sums up how many Bravo viewers feel.
