Lisa Vanderpump has certainly had an emotional time on Season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She started filming shortly after the death of her brother on April 3, 2018. The biggest scandal of the season, (besides Camille Grammer’s graphic sex talk) is “puppy gate.” And it
will never end is still going strong. If only Dorit Kemsley and her husband PK Kemsley had properly returned the pup, dubbed Lucy Lucy Apple Juice, to the Vanderpump Dog Foundation. Instead they allegedly re-homed Lucy, and somehow Lucy ended up in a kill shelter. Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave claimed that she was manipulated into leaking information about Dorit but couldn’t do it. Yawn.
The fall-out from “puppy gate” was swift. Kyle Richards accused long-time friend Lisa of leaking the story about Dorit to the tabloids. Lisa swore that she didn’t. In what was one of the most uncomfortable confrontations from any Housewives franchise, Lisa and her husband Ken Todd, banished Kyle from Villa Rosa. No more little ponies or swans for you, Kyle!
Lisa and Ken also cut ties with PK and Dorit when Dorit refused to say that Lisa did not lie about leaking the Lucy story. So, for most of the season, Lisa has been an island, except for some scenes that she filmed with Camille and newbie Denise Richards. Lisa opened the Vanderpump Cocktail Garden at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Camille was the only RHOBH cast member who was invited.
While most of the cast was in Hawaii for Camille’s wedding, Lisa was taking a lie detector test to prove her innocence. As one would normally do. Of course, Lisa passed the test.
According to toofab, Lisa’s fans may not be seeing much more of her this season. When a fan asked Lisa on Twitter if she would be making any appearances before the season ended, her reply was far from optimistic. “No, maybe Caesars on the last one,” she said. Lisa was referring to the grand opening of her Vanderpump Cocktail Garden in Sin City. “They cut out all my scenes.” Lisa explained, adding that much of what she filmed was “philanthropic.”
RHOBH viewers did see Lisa, Ken, and Vanderpump Dogs’ employee John Sessa celebrating when House Resolution 401 was passed. This resolution calls for an end to the cat and dog meat industry, which is a cause that Lisa has been very involved with for quite a while.
Lisa also filmed scenes dealing with The Trevor Project, which is a non-profit focused on suicide prevention among the LGBTQ community. She filmed content about Route91Strong, which is a group that provides financial resources and assistance for those who have been impacted by gun violence. Lisa also hosted an event, an “Indian party,” which apparently was a celebration that India decriminalized homosexuality. Lisa said that none of those scenes will be shown on RHOBH. Toofab contacted Bravo, but they declined to comment.
Now everyone is waiting to see if Lisa will attend the reunion. Since she only has a relationship with Camille and possibly Denise, Lisa would be in a rough spot facing Kyle, Dorit, Teddi, and all the other ladies. But guess what? Lisa has an amazing idea: everyone at the reunion can take a polygraph test! What do you think, Bravo? Should the Housewives be wired up to a device while they try to lie and pass blame during the reunion?
