RHOBH Season 13 Premiere Proves Lisa Rinna Wasn’t Fired


Vindication?! Lisa Rinna’s resignation letter is revealed in Bravo’s first look at season 13 of RHOBH, proving she wasn’t fired from the show.

One of the biggest mysteries in the Bravoverse has been solved! This week, Bravo dropped a seven-minute preview for the season 13 premiere of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which shows Lisa Rinna’s resignation email to the network.

In January, Lisa Rinna announced her exit from RHOBH after eight seasons on the show. The former soap star joined the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in 2014 during season 5. She remained a full-time cast member on the show until her exit following season 12.

The news left many Bravo fans scratching their heads, with many speculating: Did Lisa quit? Was she fired? What is the truth behind Lisa’s exit?

According to the season 13 premiere, Lisa did, in fact, quit the show – at least initially.

Lisa’s vindication comes at the end of the seven-minute preview as Erika Jayne heads to a retreat hosted by co-star Dorit Kemsley.

Erika appears nervous as she heads to the event with her partner-in-crime.

“So I am walking in like a man on my own island. My friend is gone,” Erika said, referencing Lisa’s exit from RHOBH.

Then, Lisa’s alleged resignation letter appears on screen. The email, dated September 10, 2022, reads:

“I will not be renewing my contract, and I will not be coming back to RHOBH. Thank you so much for 8 years!!!! All the best, Lisa.”

Following Lisa’s exit from RHOBH in January, many Bravo fans speculated that she was fired from the show following her shocking feud with Kathy Hilton during season 12.

Despite Lisa’s resignation email, there is allegedly more to the story surrounding her exit from RHOBH.

Andy Cohen previously claimed that Lisa quit RHOBH after filming the season 12 reunion. However, she “immediately regretted” her decision and took back her resignation.

In May, the Watch What Happens Live host then revealed in his latest book, “The Daddy Diaries: The Year I Grew Up,” that he ultimately made the decision that Lisa “should go on pause” and “come back” to RHOBH in the future.

That same month, Lisa’s rep released a statement denying that she was “on pause.”

“There was never any discussion with anyone about that concept,” Lisa’s rep told HollywoodLife. “Her contract ended, and the parties mutually agreed not to engage on a new one. She felt her time on the show had run its course, and she was more than happy to move on. And she still does not regret it.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 13 premieres Oct. 25 at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
