Lisa Rinna says she's leaving Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after 8 seasons

Lisa Rinna has shared her gratitude at the opportunity given to her by Bravo for her role on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but insists it's time to quit the show.

The actress and businesswoman, 59, joined the cast of the popular reality series in 2014, committing to eight seasons.

However, despite admitting it has been her longest job of her 35-year career to date, she believes the time is right to take a step back.

Lisa was well known by fans of the US-based show for her sassy one-liners and was involved in a large number of drama-filled moments and social media messiness.

And speaking to PEOPLE, Lisa said the decision was made when her contract expired after the last series. She said: "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.

It has been a fun eight-year run and I am excited for what is to come!"

The news isn't likely to surprise the show's avid viewers. During the most recent series, Lisa even described herself as a "cockroach" who you "can't get rid of".

At various times during the series, Lisa hinted her time on the show was possibly nearing its end.

Taking to Instagram during the series, she seemingly hit out at the show. She shared a throwback snap alongside the caption: "I was Lisa f***ing Rinna before HW and I'll be Lisa f***ing Rinna After."

She followed up the post with lyrics from "Roxie" beside an image of Renée Zellweger in 2002's Chicago - a role Lisa has also portrayed on Broadway in 2007.

"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 image read.

The news of her departure is likely to please RHOBH's Kathy Hilton. The mum of Paris recently called out the star alongside Erika Jayne, labelling them "villains" who love to stir up drama.

She had also vowed not to return to the show is Lisa remained a part of the cast.
