Lisa Rinna reportedly has big plans for her career in entertainment after announcing her exit from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills weeks ago.
According to a new report, Lisa, 59, is plotting to launch a new reality show with her family, including husband Harry Hamlin, 71, and daughters Delilah, 24, and Amelia Hamlin, 21, that will “take on Kris Jenner and The Kardashians” as she aims to become “the most powerful reality mogul in Hollywood.”
“It’s going to be interesting to see if Bravo steps up and develops a new show for Lisa or if she pivots into streaming the way the Kardashians have,” an insider told The U.S. Sun on January 30, noting that Lisa’s exit from RHOBH “set her up for a payday of epic proportions [that bosses can] build a major reality franchise around.”
While nothing has been set in stone quite yet, Lisa hopes to “lock something down by May,” no matter what it takes.
“Lisa is kind of the T-1000 version of Kris Jenner, and she’s going to be utterly ruthless and relentless about nailing down her next reality gig,” the source stated. “Stepping on other people’s toes is the last thing she’s worried about, and nobody is positioned better to be a successor to Kris and that franchise than Lisa and her family.”
In early January, after starring on RHOBH for eight seasons, Lisa confirmed her departure with a statement to PEOPLE.
“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,” she shared. “It has been a fun eight-year run and I am excited for what is to come!”
Then, weeks later, while appearing on an episode of Watch What Happens Live, Harry confirmed he has a cooking show in the works.
“A big network has asked me to do a cooking show and I’m in the process of putting that together,” he revealed.
Harry also dished on his wife’s potential return to the small screen during an interview with Entertainment Tonight, saying, “I’m sure she’s gonna be busy very soon.”
“Already people are talking to her about stuff. We’re busy right now, put it that way,” he teased.
He then added, to PEOPLE, that Lisa was “already talking to studios about getting going on something else.”
Lisa appeared on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in a full-time role from season five through season 12.
