Whether you love her or you hate her, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills really hasn’t been the same since Lisa Vanderpump quit the show. Puppygate was the downfall of LVP’s career as a housewife, but she seems to be doing just fine. Vanderpump Rules is finally filming its ninth season, minus a few OGs that up and “left” the show. She’s got a new show on E! that seems to be keeping her busy. And she’s still throwing shade at her old castmates, whether it’s regarding Erika Jayne’s disastrous legal problems or Dorit Kemsley doing literally anything. Like I said, regardless of your opinion on her, LVP just brought the shade to RHOBH that it’s been missing in recent seasons.
But there’s hope for Season 11, mainly for the aforementioned saga that is Erika and Tom Girardi’s fraud and embezzlement allegations. Sutton Stracke, with her new diamond in hand, is stepping up (or maybe sacrificing herself) to get to the bottom of all the tea.
Major bore Teddi Mellencamp is out, and really will not be missed. As is Denise Richards, but I, for one, will miss seeing the Raggamuffin sipping Casamigos on my screen. At least we have Kathy Hilton as a friend-of, which is likely to cause some friction for her sister Kyle Richards. We all know how RHOBH went last time Kyle had a sister on the show.
But back to LVP. Prior to her departure, she had a falling out with her longtime buddy Kyle that was honestly a bit heartbreaking to see. These two loved to get into trouble together and it made for great TV in the early seasons. And while the long-running feud may not be the center of attention for TV cameras anymore, it doesn’t mean the nastiness has stopped.
The former pair made headlines recently when Lisa apparently tried to play a joke on Kyle, that backfired. But, really, how did she think it would go? Kyle considers LVP to be the villain of all villains. According to TMZ, the story is that LVP and Ken Todd hit up a boujee L.A. restaurant, where Kyle happened to be dining with an executive producer of RHOBH. Lisa and Ken, to no surprise, sat far away and didn’t stop to say hello to her former friend. Allegedly the producer, who also works on Pump Rules and Overserved With Lisa Vanderpump, did say hello to Lisa.

Lisa and Ken apparently finished dining first, and that’s when the games began. Lisa told the server to send her $132 tab over to the producer, to be playful. The waiter followed directions, but Kyle and the producer allegedly refused to pick up the tab. Kyle later told TMZ that Lisa stiffed the bill because it wasn’t paid. But LVP wasn’t letting that slander get by — and provided the outlet with a copy of her bank statement that shows the date, the restaurant and the amount paid. She’s a restauranteur, after all, and a ride-or-die for those who are loyal to her. Lisa added that she and Ken left cash tips for the hostess and server.
As if you thought the story couldn’t get any pettier, you underestimate LVP’s ability to hold a grudge. An Instagram user @christiangreysnow posted a bombshell on Instagram that gives another side to the story. “If Lisa Vanderpump is going to sell stories to TMZ she should include the full details,” the post began. The word on the street is a fan approached Lisa after she left the restaurant and asked her to sign a printed-out photo of the RHOBH cast when Lisa was still on. “She left the restaurant and scribbled all over her former co-star’s faces,” the caption continues. “But she left that part out.”

And the wild pack of RHOBH ladies, who never shy away from a good gang up, chimed in. Kyle commented “Bitter Spice” on the post, obviously still riding the high of the Real Housewives’ All-Stars shoot. Lisa Rinna pulled a “Ooof she’s so angry,” like she threw at Denise last season. Teddi responded, “I must be really special. I got 3 X X X.” This might be the only time Teddi could be considered special in this bunch.
