Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Lisa Rinna knows her worth, which is why she wants a big fat paycheck for her reality TV return.
If Bravo wants Lisa Rinna back on RHOBH, it is going to cost them a pretty penny. The actress-turned-reality TV villain insists she has no interest in returning to the world of reality TV unless she’s offered a big chunk of cash.
Lisa Rinna reportedly told Bravo peace out ahead of season 13 of RHOBH after they snubbed her $2 million payday demand. Now, the 60-year-old says she’d need a BIG, HUGE check to return to reality TV.
“It would just take cash, really, just a lot of cash,” Lisa Rinna quipped during an appearance on E! News. “It’s probably not going to take that much really. I think it’s going to happen when it’s supposed to happen.”
The RHOBH alum went on to tease that fans can expect to see her on-screen in the near future. However, it might not be on RHOBH or Bravo as Lisa Rinna is reportedly “dead to Bravo” after she encouraged Bravolebs to boycott BravoCon.
“Lisa is dead to Bravo. She is literally biting the hand that feeds her. You didn’t hear Lisa demanding a strike when she was collecting a Bravo paycheck,” the source shared to Radar Online back in August. “This is sour grapes because she is no longer a Real Housewife, and she wasn’t invited to participate in this year’s convention.”
“There’ve been some things that I’ve been able to do that, of course, you can’t really talk about yet. But I will,” Lisa Rinna teased to E! News. “Listen, I’m a performer, I’m an entertainer. I love to be on television, so things will definitely happen.”
In early January 2023, Lisa Rinna publicly announced that she would not return to RHOBH for season 13 after eight years on the show.
“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. It has been a fun eight-year run, and I am excited for what is to come!” Lisa Rinna said in a statement at the time, according to PEOPLE.
Lisa Rinna joined RHOBH during its fifth season in 2014. Over the years, she became most known for her iconic catchphrases, which included “Own it, baby!” Throughout her time on the show, Rinna became quite infamous for her savage fights with several co-stars, including Kim Richards, Yolanda Hadid, Lisa Vanderpump, Denise Richards, and, most recently, Kathy Hilton.
RHOBH recently wrapped filming for season 13 in May, but the cameras picked back up in July amid Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky’s marital issues.
Kyle Richards, Dorit Kemsley, Erika Jayne, Sutton Stracke, Garcelle Beauvais, and Crystal Minkoff are all returning. Newbie Annemarie Wiley will join them. Kim Richards, Denise Richards, Camille Grammer, and Teddi Mellencamp have all filmed for season 13.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is reportedly returning to Bravo for season 13 in late 2023. Some reports suggest season 13 will premiere on November 1.
