The Days of Our Lives fan favorite has decided to part ways with the show. Per The Huffington Post, Rinna is saying farewell to Salem in order to devote more time to an upcoming talk show. From HuffPo: She's leaving so she can do all of the 500 other things she loves to do. [She's working on] her Belle Gray line for QVC, she’s writing another diet and fitness book, plus she’s developing a vitamin supplement line and lingerie line,” a friend of the actress told me. She’s also in talks to do a panel-type talk show. No word on when Rinna's last air date in Salem is slated for. 17 Responses marieperoy August 23, 2012 Is this a joke? I didn’t even know she was still on! When was the last time we saw Billie? On a not-unrelated note, badmouthing Joe Mascolo publicly turned out to be SUCH a good career move, didn’t it?

Log in to Reply Yoryla August 23, 2012 Lisa Rinna…hmmm, now, was that the reporter that interviewes Days Of Our Lives’ castmember during the explosion scene? That kind of looks like her, but I’m not really sure….Oh you mean to tell me she was actually IN the show herself? Hmm…did I once see her in Horton Town Square? What a bust!!! Log in to Reply Marland Fan August 23, 2012 ANOTHER talk show? Jeez, how creative. Good luck with that in an already over-saturated market. Log in to Reply john2124 August 23, 2012 Lol she was still on the show? LMAO! Log in to Reply Happy Day August 23, 2012 She was one of those characters they brought back … and had no plan for. The last time we saw her was back when that whole group was thought killed in the safe house explosion. Since then – MIA – Austin didn’t even say goodbye to her. Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 August 23, 2012 I don’t care. Billie had barely any screen time since Lisa Rinna has been back. There was no story or whatsoever. It’s the right call for both parties involved. Log in to Reply david46208 August 23, 2012 #1 thing she needs to do is fix those lips…. I kid…I kid… Log in to Reply The_Moustache August 24, 2012 she seems to have stopped being relevant after her lip injection was taken out. Log in to Reply dellygrim August 24, 2012 good luck to rinna! i do like billie’s connections to the canvas. i don’t think rinna has worked out as an actress since her first run on days. with her out of the way i’d like to see them bring the character back in a bit.julie pinson was solid but a little bland, i could see ron moss in the role according to my acct info i’ve been a memeber for 3 yrs 52 weeks. i wonder when it becomes 4 years.

That phrase is getting a LOT of mileage out of me on this board today! Lisa Rinna, your non-acting butt became irrelevant back when Melrose Place was canceled. Kindly take a seat and stay seated……….

She came back to “investigate” the DiMeras which amounted to nothing actually. The last time Lisa Rinna returned, she was pointless too. Why link her to the ISA?!?!?! It was and still is a flop. I don’t take her as an agent, give it up. I’m not a fan of hers, never was, never will be but she really had NO point coming back. If anyone could have been killed, she could have, not Jack. Just my opinion… Log in to Reply soapy opie August 24, 2012 Whew!!! Well, now that frees up some perfectly good contract space to bring in someone fun (Louise Sorrel, anyone??). Honestly, it may not have been Lisa’s fault, but she contributed very little & her exit will not leave any holes in the story. Glad she has “500 other things” to keep her busy from now on. Plus, Billie is starting to look older than her mother, the ever youthful Kate. (Love Kate. Hope she NEVER leaves.) Log in to Reply Dariclone August 25, 2012 I love Billie, but Lisa’s a mess!
