Season 12 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was unlike any other. Fans saw some iconic feuds like the one between Garcelle Beauvais and Erika Jayne. But it was also a season filled with darkness and clouds. Lisa Rinna and Kathy Hitlon’s feud was one of the most talked about events in the Bravoverse. At first, viewers were stoked to see this play out on air. But the result was heavy and disturbing.
Kathy totally came for Rinna at the RHOBH reunion. Sutton Stracke shared that the Beverly Hills ladies were in reset mode.
After a little bit of time, Rinna eventually announced her departure from the show after eight LONG years. “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,” she stated. “It has been a fun eight-year run and I am excited for what is to come!”

After Rinna’s announcement, fans have been dying to see what’s next for the diamond-holding Housewives. In an interview with People, Garcelle teased what fans could expect from the upcoming 13th Season.
“I think we’re gonna get back to old school Beverly Hills in terms of like glamor and fun, and you know, a little bit of a sisterhood if we can,” Garcelle said. “Even though there’s gonna be drama. So I’m looking forward to it. We just started filming,” the actress added.
As a fan of the show, I’m so excited to see how these ladies interact without Rinna in the middle stirring the pot. We’ll have to see once the show airs how it feels without her there. But either way, we know Garcelle isn’t losing any sleep over her frenemy’s absence.
Garcelle previously noted that Lisa “left her mark,” but now it’s time for a new era of Housewives to reign supreme. “No Housewife is bigger than the franchise,” she said. Which was likely referencing Rinna’s LeBron James comment.
