Lisa Rinna Leaves RHOBH, Stars in Lifetime'sMommy Meanestwith Daughter Delilah Hamlin

Lisa Rinna, a well-known reality TV star, has bid farewell to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after eight seasons to focus on her acting career and passion projects. Her latest venture is the Lifetime original movie Mommy Meanest, set to premiere on May 11, 2024, at 8 p.m. ET.

Mommy Meanest is a psychological thriller inspired by true events, exploring the devastating consequences of cyberbullying and toxic mother-daughter relationships. The film follows the story of Mia, a teenager who is bombarded with vicious cyberbullying texts, only to discover that her own mother, Madelyn, played by Rinna,is the anonymous tormentor.

In a unique twist, Rinna's real-life daughter, Delilah Belle Hamlin, co-stars in the movie, marking their first on-screen collaboration. Rinna admitted that playing the role of a mother who cyberbullies her child was challenging, stating, "I was certainly scared of it, and I thought that means I need to do it. It was quite a challenge to find the empathy in this woman because as a mother myself, of course, I can't imagine ever doing something like that."

Rinna also revealed that she went into "mom mode" when Delilah was on set, ensuring she had food and drinks, but was told to tone it down. Despite this, Delilah did not seek acting advice from her mother, as she is a natural talent who has grown up in front of cameras. Rinna believes that acting is in her daughters' blood and DNA, predicting that her younger daughter Amelia will also pursue an acting career.

Reflecting on her departure from RHOBH and return to acting, Rinna expressed her gratitude and excitement, saying,"It's just been so much fun. My mom always said, 'When one door closes, another one opens,' but you know, you can't forget, I'm an actor. I started as an actor. I had a long career as an actor before I did that. And so to be able to go back has been dreamy and exactly what I should be doing."

Mommy Meanest, directed by Greg Beeman, promises to be a gripping exploration of the complexities of toxic relationships and the devastating betrayal that Mia must grapple with. The movie is set to premiere on Lifetime on May 11, 2024, and while a sequel has not been announced, its possibility depends on the film's success.
