Lisa Vanderpump Says Her Relationship With Bravo Is ‘Great’ But She’s Tired Of ‘RHOBH&
Lisa Vanderpump continues to keep it real about her experience on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
The 58-year-old has made no bones about her desire to exit the franchise ever since the show’s tumultuous, ninth season wrapped filming.
But the reality TV star recently clarified her real gripe isn’t necessarily with the show or it’s network, Bravo; the real and true beef lies with her costars!
Vanderpump spilled the tea to Us Weekly when they caught up with her at the Real to Reel: Portrayals and Perceptions of LGBTs in Hollywood event on Thursday, June 6 in El Lay.
She candidly admitted:
“I have a great relationship with ; I just don’t have a great relationship with the women.”
The Vanderpump Dogs business owner said this last season was enough to convince her she didn’t quite belong amongst the cast:
“After 17 episodes of them bashing me, I think I’ve had enough of all of them.”
The feelings must be mutual, as the RHOBH cast — which currently includes Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Erika Jayne, Dorit Kemsley, Teddi Mellencamp and Denise Richards — opted to move forward and tape their show’s reunion special without her just one day prior on Wednesday, June 5.
Moreover, LVP also told Us that she hasn’t really been in contact with the ladies mentioned above, with the exception of Halloween actress Kyle Richards.
“I think I heard from Kyle once, but for the most part, anybody that had reached out, it was for filming. It wasn’t to talk to me privately.”
Our readers who’ve been keeping up with the hit show know this “mean girls” story isn’t exactly one-sided here.
The British restaurateur stirred the pot herself this season and found herself deep in drama after being accused of leaking a story about Kemsley’s dog to the press, and then denying that she had done so. A lie-detector test later proved she did not leak the story, but the damage was already done.
The never-ending and catty reality TV drama ultimately proved to be too much for her.
As we reported, Lisa confirmed she would not return to the show and instead, focus on her growing list of professional side projects. She previously said:
“I will continue to run my businesses, five restaurants, the dog center, dog center in China, my political kind of activity in fighting for many things, LGBTQ, humane treatment for dogs… the suicide prevention, Vegas, there’s only one of me. My Housewives will probably say thank God.”
But getting back to our original point, there’s no love lost between LVP and the network that cuts those big, TV checks! The star is still expected to return to Bravo show, Vanderpump Rules, when it returns for its eighth season.
