Bravo fans believe the departure could be happening due to some of her recent Instagram posts.


“I’m a star! And the audience loves me! And I love them. And they love me for loving them. And I love them for loving me. And we love each other. And that’s because none of us got enough love in our childhoods. And that’s showbiz, kid,” the graphic read on her story weeks ago.


Many people think Rinna is - a lot.


Since joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills during its fifth season in 2014, she’s polarized audiences with her instinct for digging into social sore spots. You can watch a compilation of Lisa Rinna’s Messiest Moments from the show here.


In an exclusive interview with The New York Post, she said “I just try not to pay attention to [comments], really. I mean, I’m human, so of course it’s going to get me from time to time. But I think at this point I’ve probably acquired elephant skin,” she says.


“You have to get to a point where you’re like, listen, what I do is for entertainment.”


Since Season 12 began airing in May, viewers have noticed Rinna is getting less camera time compared to her previous seven seasons on the show. Then after her mother, Lois, died last November, the reality star lashed out at producers for giving her “one episode of grace” and “that’s it.”


The QVC maven even shared a throwback picture of her walking a red carpet with the caption reading, “I was Lisa F–king Rinna before HW and I’ll be Lisa F–king Rinna After."


This was what put the nail in the coffin for many fans keeping up with the drama amid the finale of the current season approaching. Various online antics ensued, as one fan tweeted, “All signs pointing to lisa rinna finally getting fired from beverly hills."


Another noting, “Streets saying Lisa Rinna fired."


A third remarking, “Lisa Rinna is giving us fired vibes.”


“She’s gone lol,” someone else commented, as another added, “Lisa Rinna is over.”


“Oh she got fired,” yet another fan tweeted alongside a meme with the words, “There’s the door bitch!”


Harsh? Well, yes. But that's how Bravo fans get down. They take their reality tv very seriously, and since the falling out of Lisa Rinna and Lisa Vanderpump, it's been a slippery slope since.

Another fan pointed out Rinna has recently deleted her 'RHOBH' social media activity, writing things like, “Lisa Rinna deleting all things #RHOBH on instagram is making me actually believe she is getting fired,” and “Lisa Rinna blaming the producers for the entirety of Bot-Gate … is a good sign this will be [her] last season.”


Despite the widespread speculation, a source close to Rinna told BTV Insider that she is still "very much still on the show".

They balance their ever-evolving friendships with the demands of family life and growing business ventures.
