Lisa Rinna will never return to 'RHOBH.'

"No, never. No I wouldn't," Rinna confirmed when Jennifer Hudson asked about ever going back after she left in January 2023. "I'm grateful for that show. I'm the person I am today because of it, but I'll never go back. Nope, I did it. Did it, done it, saw the movie."

Despite seeming grateful, what she took away from the experience also appeared to be subtle shade. "It has made me a better actor," the Melrose Place alum admitted with a sarcastic tone.

"I'm acting again [and] I'm not kidding — you laugh but it's true. I think it made me a better actor," she added.

Rinna's latest project is the Lifetime movie Mommy Meanest, where she stars as a mother secretly cyberbullying her own daughter, who's played by her real-life offspring Delilah Belle Hamlin.

"Working with those women, going through that experience... I just did a movie called Mommy Meanest, which I trained for eight years on that show," she said of how RHOBH helped her perform. "I definitely did and I had a lot to pull from. I have a lot to pull from after working for eight years on that show. Different psychologies of different women, I never would have come across that if I hadn't done that show."
