Wait, that's Lisa Rinna?

Anyone who tuned in to catch Lisa Rinna on Watch What Happens Live on the night of Tuesday, Jan. 23 was in for a little bit of a shock. Rinna, who has been rocking the same signature highlighted bob for years and has continued to rock it while starring in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, suddenly had long, chocolate-brown locks when she sat down with host Andy Cohen. She's always looked the same, so with this new 'do, she was basically unrecognizable.

If you were surprised by her sudden transformation, you're not alone. But overall, Twitter turned out for Rinna's new look.

If you're wondering how Rinna managed to grow her hair past her shoulders pretty much instantly, her stylist, Julius Michael, has the answer: She was wearing extensions during her appearance last night. Michael posted a photo to Instagram crediting Hidden Crown Hair for Rinna's fabulous new look, and Rinna's makeup artist, Priscilla DiStasio posted several shots showing a little bit of the behind-the-scenes work that went into making her look so damn good.

The only bad news here is that extensions are temporary and require a ton of upkeep, so we'd be pretty surprised if Rinna adopted this look full-time. Still, that means the signature bob will likely be back, and no one's complaining about that.
