Lisa Rinna fired from RHOBH in 'mutual agreement'

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Lisa Rinna fired from RHOBH in 'mutual agreement'. 

After eight seasons of delivering sassy one-liners, drama-filled moments, social media messiness and self-deprecating lip humor, Rinna is departing the beloved franchise, PEOPLE can exclusively confirm.

"This is the longest job I have held in my 35 year career and I am grateful to everyone at Bravo and all those involved in the series," Rinna, 59, says in a statement. "It has been a fun eight-year run and I am excited for what is to come!"

The decision was made as Rinna's contract expired at the end of last season. After weighing her options and business obligations, she and Bravo mutually decided that she would not return to RHOBH.

Rinna joined the franchise in its fifth season, which premiered in 2014. In her debut season, the actress was involved in one of the show's most memorable fights when she hurled a wine glass at then-costar Kim Richards, who'd alluded Rinna didn't want something to get out about her husband Harry Hamlin.

The Days of Our Lives alum has also become known for her "Own it, baby" catchphrase, which is a mentality to which she subscribed throughout her run.

But Rinna's exit likely doesn't come as a surprise to RHOBH fans. Even though she's compared herself to a "cockroach" you "can't get rid of," she dropped major hints about the possibility throughout season 8.

Posting a pre-Housewives throwback photo on her Instagram Story, Rinna wrote: "I was Lisa F---ing Rinna before HW and I'll be Lisa F---ing Rinna After." She then followed this with lyrics from "Roxie" beside an image of Renée Zellweger in 2002's Chicago, which is a role Rinna also portrayed on Broadway in 2007.

On the latest season of RHOBH, the Rinna Beauty founder raised her voice repeatedly at Sutton Stracke after her costar claimed to have never received a thank you for purchasing Rinna and husband Harry Hamlin's tickets for Elton John's annual charity benefit.

Later, fans — and current RHOBH stars — took issue with how Rinna continued to leverage over Kathy Hilton's alleged meltdown during the cast's Aspen trip.
Rinna was discussing a meltdown Hilton, 63, had during a trip they had taken to Aspen together.

She explained that Hilton had spoken badly about her other castmates to her, and that holding in what she said was going to make her 'sick' and cause 'cancer.'

Many viewers were unhappy with her statement, and they took to Twitter to share their dismay, calling for her to be 'canceled' or removed from the show.

The American Institute for Cancer Research even ridiculed Rinna, with a rep blasting her for 'using cancer as blackmail to justify airing her grievance

Another epic moment that will surely go down in the show's history is Rinna's famous row with Kyle Richards' sister Kim Richards. 

The two women got into it during a trip to Amsterdam in season 5, when Rinna questioned Richards' sobriety.

Richards, who didn't appreciate Rinna's concern, replied, 'Let's talk about the husband' seemingly referring to Rinna's husband Harry Hamlin.

During season 7 things continued to escalate between the pair after Rinna had reportedly told former castmate Eden Sassoon that Kim was 'close to death' regarding her use of substances.

Denying it throughout the majority of the season, she eventually came clean to Kim and told her that she doubted her sobriety.

Trying to wipe the slate clean, Rinna decided to bring Kim a peace offering as she presented her with a bunny stuffed animal meant for her grandson. Though at the time she seemed to accept it from her, episodes later on the show's reunion she threw it right back at her which brought Rinna to tears.

Rinna also famously cast doubt on former cast member Yolanda Hadid's 2012 Lyme disease diagnosis, and suggested she might have Munchausen syndrome - a mental disorder in which someone falsely believes they are physically ill. 

Hadid revealed her Lyme diagnosis in 2012, which coincided with her first season on RHOBH. 

In Season 6, Rinna met with Kyle and former co-star Lisa Vanderpump and shared rumors she heard in Malibu about Yolanda's illness, before mentioning Munchausen's syndrome, as she read the definition out loud: 'Those affected feign disease ... to draw attention, sympathy, or reassurance to themselves.'  

Richards replied that while she'd heard some gossip, Rinna's line of questioning took things to another level: 'I don't want to be around when Yolanda hears about this conversation,' she said.

Hadid was not amused when she found out, and chastised Rinna for bringing it up so publicly: 'You put it out in the universe, and that sucks,' she said, adding, 'You labeled Kim last year, you labeled Brandi, and now you're labeling me.'
