Billie Lee joined the Vanderpump Rules cast last season, but it wasn’t a seamless transition. The Vanderpump Rules stars are very close and have been friends (enemies, frienemies, and everything else in between) before the show even existed. Billie has been very vocal about feeling left among the cast members. One person who can relate to feeling like an outsider is Billie’s “boss” Lisa Vanderpump.
Lisa used to hold queen bee status on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, although I always gave that arbitrary title to the other OG Kyle Richards. Now, it’s very clear that Lisa is on the outs with the rest of the Housewives. Erika Jayne and Lisa Rinna revealed that Lisa did not want to take part in the cast photo shoot. Lisa did not attend Camille Grammer’s wedding. Lisa was not at Kyle’s Halloween party. It just seems like she stopped showing up in the middle of filming the season. It doesn’t seem like the Housewives have Lisa’s back, but at least Billie does.
In an interview with HollywoodLife, Billie did not reveal any Real Housewives of Beverly Hills gossip, but she did share, “When I do see her, I give her hugs because I know what it feels like to be the outcast and not everyone loving and accepting of you no matter what you’re doing in life so I just send her love and sometimes I feel like I can tell she’s going through a hard time, especially after her brother passed.”

The SUR employee added, “It’s hard for her and I just always send her love.” So it is true: Lisa is on the outs with the Beverly Hills Housewives. Sure we all “knew” this, but it just hasn’t been officially confirmed.
Billie remarked, “I feel like she’s always on the go and I would like to see her calm down a little bit and not be so stressed with negative people who are trying to bring her down.” The article also noted that “Lisa is stressed with all of the drama between her and her co-stars.” Billie commented, “Yeah, it’s very stressful for her and to be honest, hopefully she does take some time off.”
Is Lisa going to “take time off” from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Or are they just going to exploit her absence until they fire her for refusing to fulfill the duties of being a cast member?
