Lisa Rinna is getting back in touch with her roots. 

The reality TV staple is heading back to her old gig as Billie Reed on "Days of Our Lives," according to The Hollywood Reporter. Rinna has inked a contract to return to the role she originated in 1992 for a very secretive story arc.

THR reports that "she will share 'explosive' scenes with her on-screen mother Kate and her former flame, Bo."

"I am so thrilled to be back and excited to be acting again," Rinna says. The soap star has recently been seen on reality shows like "Celebrity Apprentice" and "Dancing With the Stars." 

She continues: "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."

Rinna's first episode back is scheduled to air March 8, 2012, and she will return to set within the next few days.
