When I watch Vanderpump Rules, I want nothing more than for Lisa Vanderpump to take me under her wing at one of her many restaurants. When I watch Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I wonder why Lisa Vanderpump gets to hold up the center diamond in the opening credits after sitting back and doing (pretty much) nothing all season while earning a paycheck for herself and her dog.
Is it time for Lisa to jump ship from the Real Housewife life and just focus on Vanderpump Rules? It just might be. After Erika Jayne and Lisa Rinna teased that one of their costars refused to take part in a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast photo shoot, it didn’t take long for the fandom to assume Lisa Vanderpump was the culprit. Just take a look at Instagram and it will be crystal clear that every other cast member is hanging out. Where has Lisa been? Is the OG Beverly Hills Housewife on the outs with the rest of the cast? She just might be.
Erika appeared on the September 24 episode of E!’s Daily Pop. She didn’t say a lot, but she strongly implied some major shade. Host Morgan Stewart said, “We read recently that Lisa Vanderpump refused to be around all the other Housewives at a recent shoot. Is there any truth to that? We know that there is, but what is going on with that?”
Erika quickly responded with “Facts are facts.” Morgan pushed further, asking, “So, that’s a fact?” And then Erika spilled some major tea when she said, “That’s a fact.” How shocking/not.
Host Justin Sylvester asked Erika, “Were you shocked that she would play it this way?” Erika told him, “I feel like if everyone can take it on the chin like Rinna has, Dorit [Kemsley] has, or anyone else has… you know it’s an ensemble cast.” Clearly she’s implying that Vanderpump does not act like the is an ensemble cast.
Morgan asked, “Do you feel like she gets special treatment?” Erika repeated, “It’s an ensemble cast.” Apparently Lisa Vanderpump is the only one who is not aware of that. Justin asked Erika, “Do you find that some people forget that whenever they go through this process?” Without hesitation Erika told him, “Yes.” And who are “some people” that Erika could be alluding to? Oh, I have no idea…
