Harry Hamlin is celebrating his wife Lisa Rinna's decision to quit "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" after eight seasons.

Hamlin spoke with Entertainment Tonight at the "80 for Brady" premiere at the Palm Springs International Film Festival Friday, expressing his joy over his wife's exit from the show and showing support for Rinna.

"Oh my God, we're so happy about that," Hamlin, who attended the premiere with his wife, told ET. "All of our dreams just came true."

Although Rinna won't appear on the reality show anymore, Hamlin said the 59-year-old actress will be booked and busy "very soon." The 71-year-old "Mayfair Witches" star teased that "people are talking to her about stuff."

"We're busy right now, put it that way," he added.

When asked if they would miss having the Bravo cameras around, Hamlin replied with a resounding "no."

Last month, Rinna was still undecided when asked about her future in the reality show after describing Season 12 as her "hardest season" in October last year. At the time, she did not give a clear response and only said, "We'll see."

"We're just gonna see what happens, whatever God has in store for us. We never know. You never know," she added.

However, the "Days of Our Lives" alum released a statement last week saying she would not return as a cast member for "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" Season 13.

"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," she said in a statement to People. "It has been a fun eight-year run, and I am excited for what is to come!"

Rinna's contract expired last season, and she told the outlet that the Bravo executives agreed she should not return to film later this year.

"RHOBH" Season 12 had been intense for Rinna, who was embroiled in a feud with her co-star Kathy Hilton. She accused Hilton of having a meltdown during their trip to Aspen and alleged that Hilton insulted their fellow cast members, including Crystal Kung Minkoff, Sutton Stracke, Dorit Kemsley and her half-sister Kyle Richards.

Hilton denied the allegations and called Rinna the "biggest bully in Hollywood."

The Rinna Beauty founder later poked fun at Hilton's comments in a Halloween post last November. She shared a snap of a pumpkin decorated to look like her, along with a note that read: "The Biggest Bully in Hollywood."
