Could Lisa Rinna be leaving The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills? After seven seasons of drama-filled television, fans believe Rinna has been dropping hints that she’s making an exit.
From losing her mother, Lois, to frequently finding herself in the hot seat, Rinna has had a pretty tough go in season 12 of RHOBH so far. Now, viewers are speculating that Rinna – who has always been a big fan of cryptic shade and deleting posts – has been dropping clues about her departure online. In fact, fans think she shared her first clue on Monday through her Instagram Story, according to Page Six.
Clue 1: Lisa Rinna’s Roxie Hart Instagram story
The mysterious Instagram Story featured some of the lyrics to the Chicago hit, “Roxie,” alongside a photo of Renée Zellweger in the 2002 musical-turned-film. Rinna – who starred as Roxie Hart in the 2007 Broadway production of Chicago – appeared to offer up some subtle shade by writing, “And that’s showbiz kid,” over the graphic.
“I’m a star and the audience loves me,” the lyrics read. “And I love them and they love me for loving them and I love them for loving me and we love eachother [sic]and that’s just cause none of us got enough love in our childhoods and that’s showbiz kid.”

Clue 3: Fans notice Lisa Rinna archived several RHOBH-related Instagram posts
On top of the cryptic Instagram Stories, fans also noticed that Rinna archived several of her RHOBH-related posts, including one where she shared Bravo’s statement about protecting Garcelle Beauvais’ 14-year-old son Jax against racist trolls.
In response to the cast departure rumours – which were spreading like wildfire after the archived posts – Rinna once again took to Instagram to tell fans that she wanted to keep her “social page very edited” to ensure it was “very positive non negative [sic] and fashion and fun.”
“I never had RHOBH anywhere on my Instagram in my profile and I have recently edited my Instagram page for fashion [,] fun and family,” the Housewife wrote, adding that three weeks ago, she “took away 8000 photos.”
She also pointed out that there’s still RHOBH content up on her profile, including content from the reunion and “the wine scene in Provence… dancing in Provence.”

Clue 4: Lisa Rinna is skipping out on BravoCon 2022 because of ‘scheduling conflicts’
BravoCon – one of the biggest reality television events of the year – will be jam-packed with all of your favourite stars, except Lisa Rinna. According to RadarOnline, the RHOBH star and Harry Hamlin stan is skipping the highly anticipated event, reportedly due to scheduling conflicts. Sources told the outlet that, “Rinna was invited, but due to scheduling isn’t available.”
This news definitely had fans gossiping left, right and centre, but the source confirmed that her absence from the event had “nothing to do with the reunion.”
So, is Lisa Rinna leaving The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?
It’s tough to say. Despite speculation from fans, Radar Online – which has been known to stir up a whole slew of Housewives drama over the years – reports that Lisa Rinna has not been fired from RHOBH, according to their sources. Page Six also had a source inform them that “Rinna is very much still on the show – and that anything suggesting otherwise is not true.”
According to both outlets, Rinna is still employed by Bravo and remains a Housewife, but who’s to say what’s to come after the chaos that’s been stirred up from RHOBH season 12.
