The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fixture is set to guest-star in this week’s episode of The Middle, and if People’s exclusive sneak peek is any indication, she hasn’t lost her acting chops since her time on Days of Our Lives.
On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC sitcom, viewers will be introduced to Rinna’s character Tammy Brooks, the charming (and filthy rich) mother to Lexie (recurring guest star Daniela Bobadilla) — Axl’s girlfriend and Sue’s roommate.
The upcoming ninth season will be the final chapter for Patricia Heaton's half-hour comedy, ABC announced on Wednesday. The decision to end the series was made by The Middle co-creators and showrunners Eileen Heisler and DeAnn Heline.
Heaton stars as Frankie Heck, a harried wife and mother of three who lives in the Orson, Indiana, and uses her wit and sense of humor to get her family through each day intact. Neil Flynn, Charlie McDermott, Eden Sher and Atticus Shaffer also star.

It’s been an amazing run, a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and we’re looking forward to having an entire year to say goodbye,” said co-creators Heisler and Heline. “Plus, we wanted to go out before too many people knew we were on the air.”
Interestingly, she was brought to The CW through their CW Seed website, a way to expand the Arrowverse with original content. In 2015, there were six short animated episodes that performed well enough that a second season arrived last October. The dozen episodes have now been edited into a 78-minute feature, Vixen the Movie, out now from Warner Home Entertainment.

The series has indeed proven a solid performer, providing a stable launch platform for newcomer “American Housewife” this season. The show hovers around a 1.7 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic in Nielsen’s Live+Same Day ratings, and typically sees growth of 50% or more once DVR viewing within three days is factored in.
