Report: Lisa Vanderpump Done With Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills?

Despite the rumors that season 7 Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills contracts have already been signed, sources reveal that Lisa Vanderpump has not yet signed and may be done with the show!

A production source says season 7 is all ready to begin filming, except ONE of the previous cast members has not re-signed her contract – that would be Lisa, of course! 


LIsa is feeling indecisive after last season’s “negative vibes” and is frustrated with production and Bravo. Apparently she blames them for ManipulationGate…? Additionally, Lisa complained about being too busy – she’s running two restaurants, while opening a third, filming for Vanderpump Rules, and is very involved in charitable organizations like Stop Yulin Forever. Basically Lisa doesn’t need the money and exposure (or the hassle) from Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills.

TMZ reports that Lisa and the producers met at PUMP last week to discuss her future with Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. One thing’s certain: Vanderpump Rules isn’t going anywhere. Also, I’ve been hearing for a while now that a spinoff centered around PUMP is in the works!

Production and Bravo are still hoping to entice Lisa, and are still negotiating. As a reminder, Eileen Davidson and Yolanda Foster were both fired will not be returning, so it seems they are pretty serious about getting Lisa back on board. Or maybe Bravo had a hunch that another utterance of the world “Lyme” and we’d all block them with our cable providers! 

This isn’t the first time Lisa has dragged her feet, only jumping on-board last minute. After season 4’s gang-up storyline, she almost left, and required personal supplication from Andy Cohen. Perhaps, however, this is a case of fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me, and Lisa isn’t willing to once again be thrown to the wolves for ratings! 

Personally, I think she’ll be back. Lisa knows there is no Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills without her, but I could see her using her manipulative wiles to really make Bravo sweat it out. Let’s just hope this season has a lot less fabricated storylines! 

Other than LVP, next season’s cast is said to include Kyle Richards, Erika Girardi, Lisa Rinna, and two or three new women, plus appearances by Kim Richards
