It’s safe to saya lot (but not all) ofRHOBHfans will be happy Lisa’s exiting the series. In season 12, the former soap star targeted fan-favoriteKathy Hilton over some terrible things Kathy may or may not have said during an off-camera rant on the cast trip to Aspen. Lisa claimed that Kathy said she wanted to “destroy” her sister,Kyle Richards, her family, Bravo, and her RHOBH castmates during the alleged rant, but Kathy denied saying any of those things.

The drama came to a head at the reunion, where Kathy called out Lisa’s often problematic behavior on the show, referring to her as “the biggest bully in Hollywood.” Lisa also strained her relationship with Kyle after getting in between the sister’s relationship. Lisa’s final season of RHOBHalso saw the mom-of-two clash with her former friend Sutton Stracke and deal with the death of her mother Lois. Lisa ended the season on the best terms with Erika Jayne and Diana Jenkins.
