After several weeks of speculation regarding her participation with the show, multiple sources have confirmed that Rinna has officially signed on to be a part of the fifth season of the hit Bravo show.
"Lisa has been friends with Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump for years," a source explained to Us Weekly of the hiring on July 21.
When the series first began, Rinna was reportedly courted by Bravo but opted to pass on the opportunity because she had just gotten a chance at her own reality show, "Harry Loves Lisa.'" Unfortunately, Rinna's reality show lasted just one season before it was cancelled. Years later, Rinna was rumored to be joining the series again, but later hinted that her husband, Harry Hamlin, wasn't sold on the idea.
Rinna and Hamlin have been married for 17 years and have two children together.
Also a part of the upcoming season is Kyle Richards, who has been a close friend of Rinna for years.
"Yes, it’s coming back and I’m coming back," Richards told Us Weekly on June 27. "I feel good. I’m looking forward to a new season. I think it’s going to be a really good season and I’m excited. I’m curious, like the viewer, to see things unfold and see what the relationships are like."
As for the rest of the cast, Yolanda Foster, Brandi Glanville, Kim Richards and Lisa Vanderpump are all reportedly returning (as are Adrienne Maloof and Camille Grammer, according to reports).
Following season four, Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud were fired by Bravo.
