BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA: 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star Lisa Rinna has quit the show. The decision to exit the popular show does not come as a surprise since Rinna dropped many hints on social media about not returning to Bravo's reality show.

The primary reason for Rinna's exit is that her contract expired at the end of 'RHOBH' Season 12. People report that leaving the show was a mutual decision between Rinna and Bravo, after analyzing the options and business obligations. However, there are speculations that the reason behind her exit was the heavy backlash she received as she continued to leverage Kathy Hilton's meltdown during their trip to Aspen.

Did Kathy Hilton's ultimatum play a role in Lisa Rinna's exit from 'RHOBH'?

In the past season, Rinna described Hilton as the "devil" after the "psychotic break" in Aspen. However, as of now, only Rinna's exit has been officially announced, and not Hilton's. Therefore, there is speculation that she might return for the next season. This has led many to believe that Hilton played the part in Rinnas's exit from the show. Hilton previously gave an ultimatum to Rinna and said she would only return to the show if Rinna was gone. She said, “I had said that I would only be willing to come back if the cast (was different). If it was completely the same, absolutely not, I feel there are two bullies (Hilton and Rinna) that intimidate a lot of the other girls. A couple speaks up, but most of them, they're not being the most authentic self when they're pushed up to the wall and they're afraid of what those two bullies (might do) because they're capable of anything.”

A fan commented on social media, saying, "Don't play with Big Katie." Another claimed about Hilton, "Yes. She helped give Lisa the (a shoe emoji)." A fan claimed, "Yes! Don’t mess with the Hiltons. Rinna thought she was bigger than she was. Isn’t there a new executive producer? Maybe whoever that person is didn’t want to deal with Rinna too. I also think Sutton, Garcelle probably refused to do show if Rinna was involved." Another fan wrote, "She messed with the wrong person thank you Kathy." 

There have been arguments and hard feelings between Hilton and Rinna throughout the last released season of 'RHOBH.' Things got dramatic between the two when Rinna chose to try Kendall Jenner's drink during their trip where Hilton was promoting Casa Del Sol tequila. Rinna claimed about Hilton, "Kathy is so f***ing jealous of the Kardashians." Rinna called out Hilton in Crystal’s birthday part a “devil.” This drama got even messier between the stars. Hilton claimed in Season 12 that Rinna was stirring the drama because her contract was coming to an end. Hilton further clapped back at Rinna saying, “You are the biggest bully in Hollywood, and everyone knows it.”
