Even when she isn’t around, Lisa Vanderpump manages to be the most-talked-about person on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She stopped filming in the middle of the season, but production is doing a great job weaving in random kitchen remodel footage to make it seem like she stuck around a lot longer than she did.
Then, there’s that infamous lie detector test that she took with her boy John Sessa by her side. You know the one that Kyle Richards’ daughter’s friend supposedly saw with her own eyes. Does anyone actually believe that Alexia Umansky’s friend actually happened to be at the same lie detector facility as LVP? There’s little to no chance that actually happened. Someone in production definitely spilled the beans on that one. Now, there’s still one burning question and it has nothing to do with leaking a story. Will Lisa attend the Season 9 reunion taping?
If Lisa did not attend, she wouldn’t be the first Housewife to do this. It’s happened a few times before, with varying results.
Never forget when Adrienne Maloof blew off the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 3 reunion. It was right then and there that Andy Cohen announced that she was done with the show because she ditched the taping.

Luann de Lesseps missed the Real Housewives of New York Season 10 reunion because she was in rehab. For the second time. She did not lose her status as a full-time cast member for Season 11.
Does Andy think that Lisa will come through to rehash all of the Season 9 drama? According to AOL, the reunion host answered that it was “unclear.”
Andy continued, “Look, I always want to see her. I always want her to be there.”

However, he did explain that there would be an upside to her absence, at least for him. Andy admitted, “She always hates me at reunions, because she doesn’t like my questions. I don’t like the idea of her coming and hating me, because I have a great deal of affection for her. We’ll see.”
My bet is that she will film something for the reunion, but I cannot picture her sitting down with the other ladies. If anything, she would film a one-on-one segment with Andy, like Kim Richards did back in the day. However, Kim did this in support of her sobriety, not because of a falling out with the cast. Although, she probably didn’t mind avoiding Kyle at the time.
The New York Housewives already filmed their reunion even though RHOBH started airing its current season way before. Are they just giving LVP time to come through? Was it easier for Andy to film with the New York Housewives since he is based in the Big Apple? Will Lisa show up?! As Andy remarked, “we’ll see.”
