On The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills episode “Petty Mess,” while Kyle Richards cries over the feeling that Dorit Kemsley and Lisa Vanderpump are teaming up against her, Lisa Rinna has great news. After four years, Rinna is reprising her role as Billie Reed on the soap opera Days of Our Lives. The character Billie was turned onto drugs and raped by her (unbeknownst to her then) father Curtis Reed. It was Bo who got Billie to kick the drugs and stood by her side when she was charged with the murder of her father. She was innocent! (Stefano DiMero killed Curtis.) Billie went on to become a mother (Bo’s daughter Chelsea), a cop, and cosmetics tycoon, among other things. Last time Billie was on Days, she was leaving Salem for Europe.
Back on the Days of Our Lives set, Rinna won’t reunite with her RHOBH buddy, Emmy Award winner Eileen Davidson who’s taking a break from the Real Housewives show to play Ashley Abbott on The Young & The Restless. She she will reunite with Kristian Alfonso who plays Bo’s wife Hope. Bo (Peter Reckell) died in Hope’s arms in December 2015. To get her fans ready for Billie’s return, Rinna has been posting “flashbacks” of her as Billie with Bo and Hope, see below. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Mondays at 9pm on Bravo.
