Lisa Rinna has already begun filming for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but she isn’t exactly jumping in with both Louboutins first. RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that she is privately telling friends she’s ready to jump ship from at a moment’s notice — if the show begins to have an effect on her family.
With the Housewives franchises boasting a long history of divorces, legal issues, and more, "Lisa's friends expressed tremendous concern over her decision to join the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” an insider said. "Their specific concerns are that her marriage to Harry Hamlin could face unnecessary scrutiny and criticism. The couple have two teenage daughters that are lovely young ladies, why subject them to the insanity of the housewives franchise?”
But the insider revealed, "There have been assurances made by Lisa that she will quit the show immediately if it's having a negative impact on her family.”
In the meantime, the source said, "This is what she felt she had to do in order to jump-start her brand and career.”
No stranger to reality television, former soap star Rinna has competed on Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice, as well as the all-star version. She also filmed one season of her own show with Hamlin, Harry Loves Lisa, and competed on the second season of Dancing With The Stars.
