Lisa Rinna wants Bravo to show her the money if they want her back for season 13 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
According to a new report, the Rinna Beauty founder is currently renegotiating her contract with Bravo. She wants to be the highest-paid Real Housewife and won’t return for another season of RHOBH unless Bravo gives in to her demands.
“At this point, Bravo needs Lisa more than Lisa needs Bravo. She was a star before Bravo and will be a star long after Bravo, too,” sources tell RadarOnline.com. “Lisa knows her worth and knows how to negotiate. Only Lisa is willing to call their bluff and walk away if she doesn’t get the deal she wants. While the other ladies are frightened to upset Andy (Cohen), Lisa is fearless. She’s not frightened of him or anyone else.”
Insiders note that Lisa is demanding $2 million a season. This would make her the highest-paid Housewife on Bravo. The current title is held by Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss who makes just a little under $2 million per season.
Negotiations between Bravo and Lisa are still ongoing. When asked about the contract negotiations, Lisa’s rep told Radar Online, “No comment.”
Lisa joined RHOBH during season 5 in 2014.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 8 pm on Bravo.
