It looks like it is the end of the road for Lisa Vanderpump on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The “OG” Housewife had a chaotic season. She was heartbroken and mourning the death of her brother. The tale (pun intended) of Lucy Lucy Apple Juice has been dubbed “puppy gate.” In a nutshell, Dorit Kemsley and her husband PK Kemsley adopted Lucy from Vanderpump Dogs, and then decided to allegedly re-home her. Lucy ended up in a shelter. According to the adoption contract, Lucy should have been returned to Vanderpump Dogs.
A tabloid published a story about the saga, and most of the other Housewives decided that the person who leaked the story had to be LVP. Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, Lisa Rinna, Erika Jayne and Kyle Richards happily sided with Dorit. Teddi even said she was being used by Lisa to leak the details about Dorit and Lucy. You know Teddi. She likes to be accountable while shoving LVP under the bus.
Long-time friend Kyle went to Villa Rosa and accused Lisa of spilling the details about Dorit’s botched puppy return. Lisa and her husband Ken Todd told Kyle to leave. That argument was painful to watch. The Vanderpumps later cut ties with PK and Dorit when Dorit refused to admit that Lisa was truthful and didn’t leak the story.
Most of the Beverly Hills ladies trekked to Hawaii to watch Camille Grammer get married. But what was Lisa doing? She was taking a lie detector test to prove she was not lying about planting the puppy story. Lisa even suggested that the Beverly Hills Housewives should have a turn taking a lie detector test during the reunion. I am here for it! With all the lies, half-truths, and shade in that room…think of the possibilities!
In March, Lisa told Us Weekly that she hadn’t made a final decision about attending the reunion. According to toofab, Lisa told a Twitter fan that she would not be appearing in the remaining episodes of Season 9. “No, maybe Caesars on the last one,” she responded. She was referring to the opening of her Vanderpump Cocktail Garden in Las Vegas. “They cut out all my scenes.” Lisa added.

Us Weekly reported that LVP clarified her feelings about the reunion during an interview on DailyMailTV. On June 4, Lisa said, “The objective of the reunion is to reunite, right? And I have no inclination to reunite with the women who’ve been harassing me for 10 months now. So in all probability, no.”
The reunion is filming on Wednesday, June 5, so LVP’s words sound final. She is obviously done playing mind games and having her reputation trashed by her former friends.

A source told Us Weekly that Lisa “is too afraid to face the other Housewives because she doesn’t want to have her image hurt and she doesn’t want to be called out.” The source added, “She’s acting like a guilty person. An innocent person shows up and stands their ground.”
The restaurateur has not seen fellow Housewives Dorit, Erika, Teddi, and Rinna since the “puppy gate” bomb exploded. Kyle and Lisa ran into each other at Neiman Marcus in May. That must have been
awkward a fun surprise!
Will Lisa return for RHOBH Season 10? Lisa told DailyMailTV, “I think they’ve made it pretty impossible for me to go back frankly. So … no.”

A source confirmed the same thing to US. “Lisa doesn’t have any allies or friends on the show anymore. She created this for herself, but she wouldn’t have been able to come back next season,” the source said. “So, she had to make the decision, or the decision would be made for her. She knows how it works.” Yikes!
I will admit that I do have a soft spot for LVP, and I am not sure how I feel about RHOBH without her. We will have to wait and see if there will be more cast shake-ups. But at least we can get our LVP fix by tuning in to Vanderpump Rules and the Vanderpump Dogs spin-off that may be in the works.
