The 59-year-old will be departing the sets of the show amidst a feud with co-star Kathy Hilton. Due to her bullying nature, she has faced criticism from the audience as well as other celebrities in the industry familiar with what she does on the show. In fact, Prince Harry once said that Rinna is the biggest bully in Hollywood.
The mounting criticism is perhaps one of the reasons why Rinna’s contract with the show was not renewed in spite of the fact that she received a People’s Choice Award nomination for the favorite Reality TV star for her performance on RHOBH.
