RHOBH alum Lisa Rinna ‘wants her own family reality show’ and is ‘ready to be a TV matriarch like Kris Jenner’
LISA Rinna plans to start her own family reality show with ambitions to become a bigger TV matriarch than Kris Jenner, an insider told The US Sun.
The 59-year-old actress and TV personality announced earlier this month that she was leaving Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after eight seasons amid rumors of her departure.
And a longtime Bravo insider has exclusively revealed that the mother-of-two’s goal now is to unseat the Kardashians’ mother, 67, as the most powerful reality mogul in Hollywood.
The source said: “Lisa’s perfectly timed exit from the RHOBH franchise has set her up for a payday of epic proportions because she has the kind of screen presence and colorful family life that you can actually build a major reality franchise around.
“The goal is for Lisa and her family to wrap up something by May, and it will be interesting to see if Bravo steps up and develops a new show for Lisa, or if she turns to streaming like the Kardashians have done.
“Lisa is something like the T-1000 version of Kris Jenner, and she’ll be absolutely ruthless and unrelenting when it comes to nailing her next reality gig.
“Stripping on other people’s toes is the last thing on her mind, and nobody is better placed to be a successor to Kris and this franchise than Lisa and her family.
“Let’s see if she can pull this off!”
Lisa and her husband Harry Hamlin, 71, actor, Mad Men, previously appeared on their own show Harry Loves Lisa with their model daughters Delilah Belle, 24, and Amelia Gray, 21.
The TV Land series premiered in October 2010 and ran for six episodes.
Lisa’s decision to leave RHOBH came after his contract expired at the end of last season.
Initial reports claimed it was a mutual agreement between Lisa and Bravo.
Lisa – whose previous jobs have included playing Billie Reed on NBC’s Days of Our Lives and Taylor McBride on Fox’s Melrose Place – is said to be “balancing other business commitments.”
But there was speculation that she may have been asked to leave because of a bitter feud with Kathy Hilton.
“TOO BIG FOR RHOBH”
After the initial announcement, Lisa later spilled the tea over some of the reasons she left — including her mother Lois’ death in November 2021 and her falling out with Paris and Nicky Hilton’s mother.
She said in the interview: “I fucking hated this year. For many reasons. My mother died, we all know that.
“But that’s not the main reason. The story just wasn’t told as two-sided as I would have liked. How about that?”
In the same interview, Lisa opened up about her tipsy blast with Kathy after a night out in Aspen, Colorado.
She explained: “It was unfortunate that there were no cameras in Aspen.
“It happened so spontaneously. At that moment, I didn’t think to turn on my voice notes.”
The source told the US Sun: “Lisa was just getting too big for RHOBH and it made no sense for her to continue sharing this show with Kathy Hilton when Lisa is perfectly capable of taking on a full lead role herself.
“Having completed her contractual obligations to Bravo, she is a true free agent and will be recruited by every network and streaming service over the next few months.”
