After much speculation, and what seems like a million discussions about “puppy gate,” Lisa Vanderpump made it official and quit the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She didn’t even attend the reunion, depriving her
former friends enemies the chance to attack again on camera. Still, I would have liked to see a calm, cool, and collected LVP at the reunion, chilling on a couch next to Lucy Lucy Apple Juice.
If we have learned anything from ‘puppy gate,” it is that no one should adopt a dog and ignore what the rules are in the adoption contract. Dorit Kemsley didn’t return Lucy, she instead allegedly
re-homed dropped Lucy at a shelter. Most of the drama from this season resulted from this act. Who leaked the story about Dorit and Lucy to the tabloids? Of course, most of the RHOBH Housewives believed it was Lisa, even though she passed a lie detector test. Was Lisa using Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave to spread the story about Dorit? Teddi, you may have heard, specializes in accountability. Sometimes.
Lisa’s longtime friend, Kyle Richards, went to Villa Rosa, where all the miniature ponies and swans live, to speak with Lisa. Clearly, Lisa and her husband, Ken Todd, didn’t expect Kyle to confront Lisa about giving the story to the tabloids. Lisa swore on her children’s lives that she did not do it. When Kyle didn’t believe her, Ken roared at Kyle to get out. That scene really was gut-wrenching to watch.
Lisa spoke to Hollywood Life about the status of her friendship with former bestie Kyle. Spoiler alert: It’s not good. When asked if the relationship could be salvaged if Kyle apologized, Lisa’s response was bleak. “I think she had that chance,” Lisa responded. Ouch.

“It was the day before my birthday so that would be 10 months ago and I got a text the next day. When people say they’ve reached out — When people reaching out to you to film on camera, that’s not really — ‘Do come meet us for drinks, oh by the way, the cameras are there.’ That’s a different scenario,” Lisa explained.
After the explosive argument with Kyle, Lisa filmed most of her scenes for Season 9 separated from her co-stars. And that fight at Villa Rosa was the last time that the former friends appeared together on the show.

Lisa is happy with her decision to put her Housewives days behind her. “I think 9 seasons — I’ve done 300 episodes of reality television, that’s a lot,” Lisa shared. “I think 9 seasons it was good, it’s just a shame it ended like that. The negativity and the nastiness is something I’ve never thought anybody should have to endure.”
Lisa has also expressed some dissatisfaction that much of what she did film, which centered around her “philanthropic” endeavors, never made it to air. According to toofab, Lisa told a fan on Twitter that she might be part of the finale episode, as RHOBH camera rolled when the Vanderpump Cocktail Garden in Las Vegas opened.

LVP fans can still see Lisa on Vanderpump Rules. There has also been some chatter that Lisa may be getting a Vanderpump Dogs spin-off series, which would focus more on Lisa’s work with her foundation. I, for one, am tired of dog-related drama.
I will certainly miss Lisa on RHOBH. And who knows? Perhaps one day Lisa will decide to make a Housewives come back just like fellow “OG’s” NeNe Leakes and Bethenny Frankel.
