Brandi Glanville Says She Didn’t Expect Lisa Rinna’s RHOBH Exit


Bravo fans weren’t the only ones surprised by Lisa Rinna‘s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills departure.

After Lisa announced on Jan. 5 that she would be leaving the show after eight seasons, her former co-star and friend Brandi Glanville weighed in on the news exclusively on the Jan. 9 episode of E! News, stating, “I didn’t see it coming, honestly.”

But Lisa’s break is one Brandi told E! News co-host Adrienne Bailon-Houghton and guest host Francesca Amiker is much needed for the longtime reality star.

“She’s very happy about it, she’s fine with it,” the 50-year-old added. “She’s like, ‘I look forward to the next chapter,’ and she’s very okay with it, at peace.”

But just like RHOBH executive producer Andy Cohen and co-star Sutton Stracke have previously expressed, Brandi also thinks Lisa’s time on Bravo isn’t truly over.

“I feel like she’ll be back,” she shared, “I feel like she needed a pause, just because her mom passed away during shooting. She didn’t really get a chance to mourn that.” Lisa’s mother Lois Rinna died in November 2021 following a stroke.
