BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA: Kathy Hilton is reportedly glad to see her former ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ co-star, Lisa Rinna, exiting the show. It appears that Kathy felt that Lisa had been exploiting her for a storyline throughout ‘RHOBH’ Season 12, continually bringing up the Aspen meltdown, which involved Kathy allegedly threatening to destroy Kyle Richards and her family.

Now that Lisa has left the show, Kathy is relieved to no longer be dragged into the drama. Lisa, who has been a beloved part of the ‘RHOBH’ cast for eight seasons, has seen her popularity take a hit since her meddling in Kathy and Kyle's relationship and her arguments with Sutton Stracke on an episode of the show. At a panel event at BravoCon in 2022, Lisa was met with boos from the crowd, a sign that her fanbase had turned on her due to her behavior.

“Kathy felt Lisa came after her last season to give herself a storyline, but it backfired big time,” an insider told Life & Style. And after the Season 12 drama, Kathy also hit Bravo with an ultimatum. “I had said that I would only be willing to come back if the cast, if it was completely the same, absolutely not, because I feel there are two bullies that intimidate a lot of the other girls,” she said, confirming she was pointing fingers at Lisa and co-star Erika Jayne, who accused her of using a slur. Kathy had denied Erika’s claims at the time. “They’re capable of anything,” Kathy had noted.

Although Kathy later changed her mind and said Lisa was easygoing, Bravo decided to end their association with her, indicating she was too controversial for them. “Kathy made it perfectly clear that she wasn’t planning on appearing on the show if Lisa stayed,” the source said. “Fans love Kathy and want to see more of her, so ditching Lisa was a no-brainer.”
