Katie Maloney & Stassi Schroeder - Vanderpump Rules

It has felt like ages since Lisa Vanderpump and her new pink kitchen graced the screen on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Once Lisa stopped filming with the mean girls puppygate girl gang, viewers were left wondering if she was going to attend the reunion. To many fans dismay, Lisa decided to say “Cheerio” to not only the reunion but the show as well. 

Even though Lisa hasn’t been on RHOBH for most of the season, the cast can’t stop talking about her. One minute they wish she was there, ok only Kyle Richards said that, and then next minute they trash her. Erika Girardi said she was a “dark cloud” over the group and is happy Lisa is gone. And they aren’t the only ones with an opinion about Lisa leaving either. 

The cast of Vanderpump Rules also chimed in on Lisa’s departure. Ariana Madix and her roommate boyfriend Tom Sandoval were first to share their thoughts. Which was surprisingly positive. Last she spoke, Ariana pouted that she would only ever be considered one of Lisa’s minions. Did she forget that if she wasn’t one of “Lisa’s minions”, they couldn’t afford their new 2 million dollar house?

Not to be left out, the witches of WeHo shared their thoughts too. Katie Maloney, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute spoke with Access, and discussed their reactions to Lisa leaving RHOBH. They also didn’t miss a chance to plug to their Witches of WeHo wine. Is anyone drinking that?

The feedback from the trio was also positive. Katie stated, “Good for her.” Stassi then chimed in, “I think she needs a break.” Then the three gave a nervous giggle as Katie said, “That means she’s going to come to us and be like, you guys, what are you doing?”

I’m not sure what Katie means by that. Maybe she thinks that Lisa will be more involved in their storylines next season? If so, that’s clearly not the plan anymore as Lisa has taken a break from filming due to the recent death of her mother.

Kristen added, “She had pep in her step the other day, and she was like really kind to me yesterday…I feel like it’s some weight lifted off her shoulders. For her to have a hot minute to herself.” Kristen always acts like Lisa’s dislike of her came out of nowhere. How quickly she forgets her “Go suck a dick!” line she said at SUR that got her fired.

Katie concluded, “Overall like her mood is a lot brighter now.” Hmm…could it be that the dark cloud wasn’t Lisa, but rather the cast of the RHOBH? And if it’s not the full cast, that dark cloud definitely includes Erika.
