Just as Dorit Kemsley‘s husband, Paul “PK” Kemsley, confirmed Lisa’s return on his Instagram page, fans flooded to a petition that called for Lisa to be fired from the Bravo reality series for being a “jealous mean girl” who adds “nothing” to the show.
“Lisa Rinna’s tweets and actions she has recorded and posted on social media [are] hateful and disrespectful to fans [and] viewers of the show. She prompts toxic responses from people and is alienating people from watching the show. Her presence is killing the show,” the petition explained.
The Change.org petition demanding Rinna’s firing is requesting 1,500 signatures and has already received over 1,200.
A number of RHOBH viewers who signed the petition also shared comments, explaining why they chose to do so.
“I think if Lisa wasn’t so interested in stirring sh*t, she could be fun on the show. But the way our country is today, with all the bullying and name calling, I don’t care to watch it on a show I used to enjoy,” one person said.
“Lisa Rinna is ruining the show. She’s not entertaining. She’s a jealous mean girl that chases well-liked women off the show. She is the worst and I’m sick of her,” wrote another.
According to a third fan, Lisa does not share any of her own life on the show. Instead, she uses her drama with others to remain relevant within the group.
“[Lisa] does not share her life at all. She goes after others just to have a story line. Not something I care to watch anymore,” the person stated.
A couple of other viewers said Lisa doesn’t bring anything to the series aside from hate and negativity.
“She brings nothing to the show except hate and mean girl [bullsh*t]. I’m sick of watching her pull stunt after stunt of nothingness to stay on,” someone noted.
“Lisa Rinna has become so negative and mean. She’s such a downer and adds nothing to the show,” another fan added.
Lisa joined the RHOBH cast in 2014 for season five and recently began filming season 11 despite the calls for her firing.
As viewers may recall, fans of the show also called for Teddi Mellencamp‘s firing earlier this year after she mentioned Denise Richards‘ alleged affair with Brandi Glanville to her castmates in Rome. Weeks later, Teddi confirmed her contract was not renewed for season 11.
