Well, we all know that Beverly Hills fans are die-hard, so is it any surprise that they are attempting to take the casting of their beloved franchise into their own hands?
After Dorit’s husband PK spilled the beans and announced next season’s cast, which according to him will include Kyle Richards, Erika Girardi, Lisa Rinna, Garcelle Beauvais, and his wife Dorit, fans lost it. It appears that fans were hoping for more of a shakeup, specifically targeting
not so fan favorite Lisa Rinna.
In a Change.Org petition created by a fan, the petition asks Bravo to fire Rinna, with the following statement:
Lisa Rinna’s tweets and actions she has recorded and posted on social media is hateful and disrespectful to fans an viewers of the show. She prompts toxic responses from people and is alienating people from watching the show. Her presence is killing the show.
The petition is aiming for 2,500 signatures with around 1,700 signatures at this time. Reasons for signing vary, including,
“Ms. Rinna promotes body obsession over intellect and integrity. The misuse of her platform is sad.”
“Lisa Rinna’s demeanor is not suitable for display on any kind of media! Shame on those who enable her nasty behavior.”
“Lisa Rinna is ruining the show. She’s not entertaining. She’s a jealous, mean girl that chases well-liked women off the show. Replace her already!”
Perhaps Garcelle was one of those signatures? The RHOBH star recently spoke out about her former friend stating:
“The Rinna that I knew before Housewives is what I can really speak to, you know. She was fun, she was supportive, she was nice, she was kind, and I get it — we’re shooting a TV show, and I get that drama is a part of it — but I think she took it to a level that was not a good look.”
I do think the hit show has changed Rinna as Denise Richards echoed similar sentiments. Love her or hate her – I do think Rinna knows how to stir that pot which makes me think she may be around for seasons to come.
