Sources Say That Lisa Rinna Hasn’t Been Fired From “Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills” Despite Rumors And Her Removal Of Any Mention Of The Show From Her Instagram
Lisa Rinna has covered her now 30-years-running haircut by wearing many inflammatory Gucci bucket hats during her tenure on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, like: Sultana of Seeking Attention, Oligarch of Owning It, and Princess of Pot-Stirring. And no matter which hat she puts on in any given episode, she usually ends up making for prime hate-fuel for viewers. After some rumors, recent events from the show leaking over into cast members’ family lives, and Lisa’s Instagram being scrubbed of anything RHOBH-related, many thought that Bravo had sent her packing. But, sources close to the situation say that she hasn’t been fired, and Lisa says she just wanted her Instagram to be more positive and focus on “fashion, fun, and family.”
Radar Online says that Lisa actually edited her Instagram a few weeks ago, but people just now started noticing since she’s been in hot water lately for her behavior on the show.
Well-placed insiders revealed to RadarOnline.com that Rinna edited her Instagram page, making it strictly “for fashion fun and family” about three weeks ago. However, fans just recently noticed the change. We’re told nothing has changed when it comes to her employer, and she remains a Housewife despite backlash from fans.
Tensions have been high among the cast since part of the drama unfolding on the show right now has resulted in the recent social media trolling of Garcelle Beauvais’ 14-year-old son, Jax, by paid bots–whose comments include racial slurs. Obviously, none of the wives want to admit to it or be accused of orchestrating it, so they all posted a statement from Bravo denouncing it. But, Lisa even deleted that statement from her Instagram, which bewildered many.
Bravoholics went wild on Monday when they noticed that Rinna had erased a recent statement from the network, urging angry viewers to stop attacking her co-star Garcelle Beauvais‘ teenage son, Jax. Cyberbullies went after the 14-year-old after his mom wouldn’t stop expressing her concerns over Erika Jayne’s drinking.
Here’s the Bravo statement that Lisa posted and later wiped from her Insta:
A fan messaged Lisa to ask why she deleted the statement about Garcelle’s son, and in true Lisa form, she denied technically “deleting” it, had a long-winded excuse, and then deflected, saying that her daughters are now also getting threatened online too.
Rinna addressed the situation hours ago, revealing she didn’t delete the statement — she archived it. “I archived it that’s all,” the RHOBH star clarified. “I’ve been keeping my social page very edited if you will notice,” adding that she doesn’t want “anything negative on [her] grid.”
The Days of Our Lives actress also claimed that her daughters Delilah, 24, and Amelia, 21, are “being threatened as we speak.” Rinna later stated, “I will no longer be saying or posting anything about the show.”
Here’s the full conversation:
A recent blind item also had fans wondering (and then prematurely celebrating in case it was true) if Lisa was getting the boot–along with Erika Jayne Girardi and loathed newcomer, Diana Jenkins.
Last week, speculation began to swirl that Rinna, Jayne, and newcomer Diana Jenkins were all axed from the reality show after the popular IG page Bravo and Cocktails shared a blind item that “three west coast wives will be out next season. Lip Licker, Little Miss Own It, and the criminal.”
Several viewers thought Rinna’s change to her Instagram was her confirmation.
Here’s the blind, which gives enough clues that it’s more of an “only slightly visually impaired” item:
Fans rejoiced, because those three women are pretty much the worst (until the next absolute unhinged questionably decent humans they hire come along). But, even though the writing is on the wall, no firings have been confirmed.
“God I hope so. I heard this on up and Adam podcast yesterday. I hope it’s true,” one fan responded to the IG. “I’d like to think they were all summoned and fired by bravo at once, and that’s why they all went to Hawaii together – ex wives club 2,” added another.
While RHOBH fans are split on Rinna’s future, RadarOnline.com can confirm that Bravo hasn’t told her she’s going anywhere.
Here’s their possible Hawaii unemployment trip:
Lisa has always prided herself on being a hustler, so it seems like she’s hustling to remove the stink of RHOBH before it removes the stink of Duchess of Depends, Lisa Rinna. At least she’ll have more time to try to set up one of her spawns with Harry Styles. Meanwhile, Erika Jayne is updating her LinkedIn, because those “theft from orphans” legal bills aren’t compatible with unemployment.
