After a few months in the “rumor” mill, but what we all knew just had to be true, Lisa Rinna is officially returning to Days of Our Lives as Billie Reed!
The Hollywood Reporter exclusively broke the confirmation of Rinna’s return today that was first brought to light by The Huffington Post! Rinna is now going to be on contract with the NBC soap and her first episode will air on March 8th of the New Year.
According to THR: “While details of her story arc are being kept under wraps, network officials confirm that she will share “explosive” scenes with on-screen mother Kate (Lauren Koslow) and her former flame, Bo (Peter Reckell).”
Rinna stated,”I am so thrilled to be back and excited to be acting again. I have done reality shows, talk shows and I thought, what a great way to come back and play a character that I love to play so much. Feels very full circle — like a new old chapter.”
In more recent years, Rinna has been on Celebrity Apprentice, Dancing with the Stars and of course soapers remember her as the co-host of Soap Talk with Ty Treadway and her time on Melrose Place.
Welcome home to Salem, Lisa!
