Season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is set to start soon, and the drama is already crazy! Much of that drama involves whether or not Lisa Vanderpump is planning to exit the series after this wild season.
Lisa’s co-stars, Kyle Richards, Dorit Kemsley, Lisa Rinna, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, and Erika Jayne are mixing it up this time along with newbie Denise Richards. Rumors have been swirling that Lisa would only film with Denise. That is certainly an ominous sign. I don’t think that RHOBH would shine as brightly without OG Lisa.
Lisa appeared on Access Live to address the rumors that she will soon be ditching the Housewives. According to Hollywood Life, she said“Well it’s been a really tough season for me. I didn’t do well this season because of many things, but Vanderpump Rules has been great,” Lisa said. When asked if she is considering leaving Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Lisa exclaimed, “Oh my God. Are you kidding? I think about that every day.” Yikes!
Lisa’s brother Mark died suddenly on April 3, 2018, and she struggled to deal with his unexpected death while the RHOBH cameras rolled. “I [also said] that I shouldn’t have come back this year because I was so devastated because of a personal tragedy in my family,” she said.
The successful restaurateur explained that taking a year off would have been beneficial for her. “But you know, [the ladies] kind of got a bit of a gang up thing going on — you’ll see. And I just didn’t make it through the whole season.”
Lisa has been dealing with other show-related drama. There were rumors that former bestie (and splits enthusiast) Kyle engaged in a shouting match with Lisa’s husband, Ken Todd. Reportedly, Kyle banned from their home after the showdown. Wow! That must have been an epic screaming match. Fingers crossed that RHOBH’s cameras were filming!
When TMZ’s cameras caught up with Kyle after Andy Cohen’s
baby “Housewives” shower, Kyle acknowledged there was some drama behind Lisa’s absence. Kyle responded to a pot-stirring question from a photographer asking if Lisa was missing because she was “holding out for money.” Kyle responded, “Do I have to pay her to come to the shower? Maybe!”
Lisa clapped back during an interview of her own, where she explained that she was working on opening a restaurant at Caesar’s in Las Vegas. “You know what I actually met with Andy before and gave him a cashmere blue blanket and a teddy bear,” Lisa shared. Alluding to her deadline, Lisa added, “I have a job. The same job that I had before I was on Housewives. I didn’t make a career out of being a Housewife.” Boom! Mic drop!
