Lisa Vanderpump Confirms Lisa Rinna Was Fired From ‘RHOBH’
On March 8, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum discussed her ongoing feud with Lisa Rinna and confirmed that the soap actress was fired from the Bravo reality series.
Vanderpump was asked by Andy Cohen during the broadcast, “Would you ever consider going back to Beverly Hills since Lisa Rinna is finally gone?” Stirring the pot — Vanderpump responded, “Oh, Rinna is finally gone? Did she leave or was she fired?”
Andy Cohen broke the uncomfortable silence and said, “She’s on brief pause…” to which Vanderpump insisted, “I know she was fired.” The talk show host threw a hand up in disbelief and proclaimed, “There’s nothing I can say here.”
Fortunately, Lisa Vanderpump, who currently has her own eponymous show on the network, responded as though she had nothing to lose.“I’m going to get a lot of shit tomorrow, but it’s worth it,” the reality star quipped.
Returning to Andy Cohen’s initial question, Vanderpump asserted, “You know what, we’ve talked about it. You said the door’s always open and you’re on the right path with one gone, there’s just a few more to go.” She continued to launch into a story about her unfortunate run-in with the Lisa Rinna at a hotel in Paris, “of all the places in the world.”
Vanderpump clarified, “I was staying there, I don’t know what she was doing there.” When asked if the two were able to “have a laugh together,” following the years of their pent-up drama, Vanderpump insisted that she walked into the establishment “speaking perfect French,” meanwhile Rinna was “kind of hanging around the corner, somewhere.”
Andy Cohen made an attempt to encourage the two to reconcile by saying, “That seems like a moment where you guys would be like, ‘This is funny!’” But Vanderpump quickly shut down the conversation, adding, “She’s not funny.”
Lisa Vanderpump was a founding cast member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills but left the show at the conclusion of Season 9. On the other hand, Rinna began as a guest in the fourth season before becoming a fulltime cast member from Seasons 5 through 12. Vanderpump’s ongoing dispute with Rinna culminated in the “puppygate” controversy, which led to her departure from the show.
Fans labeled Lisa Rinna an antagonist of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills — was fired following allegations of orchestrating a BOT attack on Garcelle Beauvais’ son, in 2022.
In 2014, Lisa Rinna’s career took off when she joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and remained on the popular Bravo reality show for eight seasons.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills revived Rinna’s acting career, which was struggling before her stint on the Bravo reality series. Being a Housewife is a lucrative business, so when they are no longer offered a contract for the upcoming season, it is a polite way of saying they have been fired.
