Lisa Rinna announced her exit from RHOBH after eight seasons. She stated that the drama during season 12 went farther than she expected or wanted for anyone. However, it is important to note that the Real Housewives franchise often sees cast members come and go, creating room for new women to join the show.
Crystal Minkoff hopes to showcase her fun side in season 13. She mentions that the previous seasons focused heavily on drama and serious topics, such as her struggles with food and bulimia. Crystal wants to tap into her whole life and demonstrate her bubbly personality if she returns for the next season.
Crystal Minkoff chose not to fight back against Erika Jayne during season 12 when the topic of eating disorders was brought up. She explains that when something is deeply painful, her reaction is to clam up rather than engage in a confrontation. Crystal was already fighting enough internally, so she didn’t feel the need to fight someone else to make them understand her struggles. Her health and recovery are her top priorities, and the show itself is not as important.
