Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna is reveling in her final moments before retreating back into the comfort of basic obscurity. Lisa didn’t begin with the franchise, but she was there long enough for people to forget she wasn’t an OG – now they are just trying to forget Season 12 entirely.
Bless her heart, Lisa tried. She tried to get involved in every aspect of her co-stars’ drama, as long as her personal life flew under the radar. Ultimately she took a shot at Kathy Hilton and it didn’t end well for Lisa. It did end her contract with RHOBH.
Lisa was asked what she believes will be lacking on the show now that’s she’s hit the trails. Her response was very Rinna. She said, “Everything!” Then she probably laughed and slapped her knee. But Lisa was only joking (she probably wasn’t joking) and added, “The girls are gonna be fine.” If memory serves me correct, “the girls” were fine before Rinna and “the girls” will be fine after Rinna.
The majority of viewers were pleased when Lisa announced she was leaving after 8 years of stirring the pot. Lisa shared she was “always game” regarding what she brought to the table. Sure, if “always game” means “never talking about her personal life on a reality television show.” Lisa continued, “I am professional to know that we have a job to do. So, I went in there and I gave it my all and I did my job, so I will always feel good about that.”
Um, not really. Lisa gave barely anything of her family and what was actually going on with HER. We know her daughters had some issues, but apparently those were off limits. Heck I’m still waiting for a full reveal of Patricia, the whore from Muskoka. The only thing Rinna did was try and keep the heat off bestie Erika Jayne whilst messing in everyone else’s business.
Regarding the incident with Kathy that ultimately sealed her fate, Lisa said she has no regrets. “All of it really sucked. Do I regret it? No, because I am there to tell the truth,” she said. “I am there to tell what happened. That’s my job.” Correction, that was her job. She added, “I told my truth and that is all I can do.” Well she told someone’s truth, but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t hers.
Rinna said she feels “so much lighter” after leaving, because that’s the stock line for anyone
trying to save face who was asked to vacate their employment position. But don’t you worry about Lisa. After the launch of her make-up line, Rinna Beauty, she’s giving the public more of herself by releasing Rinna Whines. I’m sorry – it’s Rinna Wines.
Yes, soon you will be able to take the edge off a bad day by opening a bottle of Rinna Wine which probably accuses you of something after you pop the cork. I know I’m looking forward to the 837th alcohol-related product by a Bravolebrity. Up next… her podcast! Probably.
In closing, Lisa looks back fondly at her time on RHOBH. “I always think it’s great—I mean, eight years is such a long time and I’m so grateful for it—but to try something new after eight years. I’m ready. It was time.” Can’t disagree with her on that one.
TELL US- WILL YOU TRY LISA RINNA’S WINE? ARE YOU GOING TO MISS HER NEXT SEASON? DO YOU THINK SHE WILL EVER RETURN TO RHOBH?
