Lisa Rinna may have butted heads with Brandi Glanville during The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5, but according to the former soap star, she misses the mother of two. During an interview with Jenny McCarthy on her Sirius XM radio show, Lisa Rinna explained her shocking statement.

“I have a mixed feeling about that,” Lisa Rinna told McCarthy after being asked about Glanville’s exit from the Bravo reality show.
While Lisa Rinna and her former co-star had their differences during filming, and during the reunion, Lisa Rinna claimed she was having to work harder during filming due to Glanville’s absence.
“You know what? I think Brandi was good for the show. It made it a lot easier, because I had a villain. There is a part of me that missed Brandi Glanville to be honest with you because she was easy, I mean, she was easy to work off of. I’m having to work harder right now. Brandi was the easy one. She just threw it right at you, and you play tennis with her and hit right back. She loved it I think, and it paid her bills until it didn’t.”
“I miss Brandi Glanville,” Lisa Rinna continued, “and I’m going to be honest about it. I miss her. I do miss her because she was fun.”
Lisa Rinna joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills last year as part of the full-time Season 5 group. Then, ahead of Season 6, she was asked to return and Glanville was not. While Glanville has hinted she may return a number of times on Twitter, she recently spoke to Entertainment Tonight, admitting she hasn’t yet filmed for the series’ upcoming season. Glanville also admitted during the interview that it wasn’t her choice not to return.
Since June, Lisa Rinna and her co-stars, including returning wives Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Yolanda Foster, and Eileen Davidson, have been filming with their new co-stars, Kathryn Eickstaedt Edwards and Erika Jayne.
Lisa Rinna has also reportedly filmed The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 6 with Taylor Armstrong, who is expected to be seen in a guest-starring role.
No word yet on when Lisa Rinna and the cast will return to Bravo for Season 6.
