After an extremely messy Season 12, Lisa Rinna announced that she would not be returning to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in any capacity. RHOBH fans grew tired of Lisa forgetting to take accountability and eventually saw her as one of the greatest villains of all time. But though she gave viewers years of entertainment, Lisa Rinna isn’t missed on RHOBH Season 13. Here’s why the show is better without her.  

Erika Can Now Be Erika

The gruesome twosome were often hard to keep separate, with Erika Jayne and Lisa developing a strong friendship. Season 12 showed the two teaming up to gang up against almost everyone within their group, often trying to keep the spotlight off their own private issues. Erika made it clear in January that nobody would be able to fill her best friend’s Christian Louboutin shoes, but it seems as if the Pretty Mess singer is already thriving while flying solo.  

With Lisa no longer in the picture, Erika is free to make her own decisions when it comes to interacting with the friend circle. She has already started off RHOBH Season 13 strong, claiming she is choosing to give up fighting for lent. If Lisa was still filming, the odds are high that she and Erika would just be contemplating ways to make their co-stars’ lives hell. At least now Erika has a chance to stand on her own. 

Lisa Was Often Seen as a Bully


Most Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans actually liked Lisa during her first few seasons, but towards the end of her time, she made the series unwatchable. Not only did Lisa lose her mind, but she took her bullying of Lisa Vanderpump, Denise Richards, and Sutton Stracke a bit too far. After eight drama-filled seasons, the mother of two became a major liability

It all came to a head during the Season 12 reunion when Kathy shouted, “You are the biggest bully in Hollywood, and everyone knows it. You’re mean, and you don’t tell the truth.” It was hard to deny that Lisa was anything but an angel. Lisa often intimidated many of the other women, and it just got hard to watch after a while. Lisa’s behavior was often inexcusable, with fans not really missing the dramatics of her acting technique. 

It Became Too Dangerous To Be a Lisa Fan

Frankly, it became hard to defend Lisa and then defend why you are still a fan of her. Lisa used to be so likable and was a great antagonist, but at times, it felt like her newfound reality TV fame had gone to her big lips big head and iconic hair. It was okay to be excited when Lisa was first added to the cast since she is a Hollywood actor, but the series revealed her as a naturally mean person

Those who still show support for Lisa are usually blasted by other trolls on social media. It is often hard to get a word in edge-wise from those who truly hate Lisa and her stance. Most Lisa fanatics stay quiet and put away their keyboard in fear of being retaliated against. 

Lisa’s Storylines Were Fabricated


The beauty of RHOBH Season 13 is that the current storylines are all very real. Whereas Lisa often fabricated drama in order to grab the limelight. The wife of Harry Hamlin made it clear that she was happy to ruin anyone for a check. Not only did she go hard for her best friend of 20 years, Denise, but Lisa also exploited her daughters, all while preaching to the rest of the cast to own their sh*t. 

It doesn’t look like Lisa will ever return to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and that’s okay with most of us. Already, RHOBH Season 13 has shown Sutton freaking out over male strippers and Kyle contemplating her marriage. This season is going to be TV gold. While some may have loved messy Lisa, that fun part of her disappeared somewhere between bunny-gate and impersonating Erika for Halloween. Good riddance, Rinna.
