Lisa Rinna says her late mother advised her to leave ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ in a dream

Lisa Rinna’s departure from “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” may have been an act of divine intervention.

The actress and former reality TV star opened up about her decision to leave the Bravo series after eight seasons in an interview with ES Magazine published Thursday.

“Who wants to quit a job?” Rinna told the UK outlet. “But I think we all knew it was time. Eight years of this kind of show… what more could I have done, other than generate more memes?”

But seriously, Rinna said her “RHOBH” release was inspired, in part, by unexpected maternal advice after dreaming about her late mother Lois Rinna, who died in November 2021.

“She came to me,” Rinna said. “It’s so crazy because half the world will believe it, half the world will say, ‘This is so weird. I was sleeping and I heard her say to me, “It’s time for you to leave.”

“I talked to a psychic about it, and she was like, ‘Oh yeah, she came to me and said that. She wants you to be happy and to pursue your dream, but she says that ‘it’s time for you to go,'” Rinna continued. “I am guided by my mother, of course.”

Rinna first appeared on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” in season 4 in 2014 and returned as a full-time cast member for seasons 5-12, alongside Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, Erika Jayne and Dorit Kemsley. She revealed she was leaving the show after a nearly ten-year stint in January.

“This is the longest job I’ve had in my 35-year career, and I’m grateful to everyone at Bravo and everyone involved with the show,” Rinna told People magazine in a post. communicated at the time. “It’s been a fun eight-year run, and I’m excited for what’s to come.”

Rinna also said her decision to leave was informed by the show’s increasingly hostile reception from fans. “I think the world itself has become so unstable that the response doesn’t match what we’re doing,” she said. “I didn’t want to live like this. I don’t think it’s healthy.”

“The way the fan base reacts to the show is not the same as when I started,” Rinna told ES Magazine. “I mean, we were getting death threats. Some of the most horrible things I’ve ever seen in print in my life, and this is a reality show. This is a stupid show. I thought: “It’s time to go. I don’t know how much longer that can exist in the air, to be honest with you.”
