Lisa Rinna and her longtime publicist have parted ways following a drama-filled season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which is currently being topped off with an eventful reunion.
Just before Andy Cohen was seen calling Lisa out for her lack of impulse control on part two of the special, and after he responded to a fan’s call for her to be fired at BravoCon, where she was booed as she took to the stage for an RHOBH panel, an insider has confirmed the end of Lisa’s professional relationship with her publicist.
There was a “mutual parting of ways,” the source told Heavy on October 19.
Over the weekend at BravoCon, Andy responded to a call for Lisa to be booted from RHOBH, saying, “Let the reunions play out, okay? Everyone can regroup… She’s in the building, okay?”
Meanwhile, during an interview with Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet at the event, Lisa said she “loved” the fans’ reactions.
“I got booed. And I flicked them off. That’s what I did. I got booed and then I flicked them off. But I’ll tell you what, it was so fun. I loved it so much,” she admitted. “Everyone was so worried for me and I was like, ‘Why are you worried? It’s fabulous. I’m like a wrestler. I’m like WME.’”
Although Lisa raised questions of a potential exit from the show when she removed all mentions and photos of RHOBH from her social media accounts in August amid backlash over her meltdown claims against Kathy Hilton, she ultimately told her Instagram audience, “I’m like a cockroach. You can’t get rid of me.”
If Lisa does return to RHOBH for its upcoming 13th season, Kathy will not. While speaking to Us Weekly days ago, she said that if it is “the same exact cast,” she will “absolutely not” be back.
Then, days later, she responded with a praying hands emoji to someone asking if there was an online petition to have Lisa fired from RHOBH.
“So over Lisa Rinna. Is there a petition to get her off the show lol. She’s just always REACHING. Hands off [Kathy Hilton]!!!!!!!! We love [you] Kathy lol,” they stated in a comment on the Behind the Velvet Rope With David Yontef podcast’s Instagram page.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 12 reunion continues with part three next Wednesday, October 26, at 8/7c on Bravo.
