A month after she announced her departure from the series, Rinna appeared on E! News, where she was asked what the show will be missing now that she's gone.
In response, Rinna, 59, joked "everything." She then struck a more serious tone, noting that "the girls are gonna be fine" without her on the Bravo series.
Rinna also noted that the show might miss her "always game" mentality. She added, "I am professional to know that we have a job to do. So, I went in there and I gave it my all and I did my job, so I will always feel good about that."

In early January, Rinna announced her decision to step away from RHOBH after eight seasons.
"This is the longest job I have held in my 35 year career and I am grateful to everyone at Bravo and all those involved in the series," Rinna said in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE. "It has been a fun eight-year run and I am excited for what is to come!"
The decision to walk away came as Rinna's contract with Bravo expired. Rinna and the network mutually decided not to renew for additional seasons.

In conversation with Interview magazine, Rinna explained that "something has gotten to the Housewife Universe because of what's going on in the world, and it's reflected in the way the fans react to the world of Housewives."
"I just think it's unhealthy. It wasn't working for me. It wasn't right for me," she added.
