Lisa Vanderpump Says She Never Sent Restaurant Bill To Kyle Richards; Insists She Sent To Producer Instead

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Lisa Vanderpump is living her best life right now. Vanderpump Rules, after floating in limbo, is finally going to start shooting Season 9.

The show will have a face lift of sorts, since “OG” cast members Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder were fired for racist behavior in June of 2020. Lisa made it clear that she would have preferred to see the fired VPR stars learn and grow from their mistakes, but it wasn’t her decision. Jax Taylor and his wife Brittany Cartwright also left the show.

The former RHOBH star also landed a talk show on E! called Overserved with Lisa Vanderpump. And Lisa’s newest show Vanderpump Dogs, recently released its first trailer. It shows the staff trying to find perfect forever home for the dogs. As a dog lover, I like the concept.

When Lisa left RHOBH amid the puppy-gate scandal in Season 9, she was going through a difficult time. Her bestie, Kyle Richards, went to Villa Rosa and accused Lisa of leaking the puppy-gate story to the tabloids to smear Dorit Kemsley. When Lisa denied it, Kyle called her a liar. Lisa’s husband, Ken Todd, banished Kyle from Villa Rosa with a mighty roar.

Lisa was also struggling with the death of her brother in May of 2018. She exited the show during Season 9. Lisa later admitted that she battled depression after leaving the franchise.

I’m sure that Lisa will be watching Season 11 of RHOBH. In the premiere, viewers saw a foreshadowing of all the legal and personal drama about to rain down on Erika Girardi.

Recently, Lisa and Ken went out to dinner and saw Kyle and an executive producer from RHOBH dining together. The producer said hello to Lisa, as they also work together on Overserved with Lisa Vanderpump and Pump Rules. As a joke, Lisa sent her $132 bill to Kyle’s table. The producer and Kyle didn’t pay for the dinner. But never fear- Lisa showed her bank records to prove that she did. Lisa isn’t a dine-and-dash sort of girl.

Kyle continued the feud by claiming that when a fan approached Lisa outside the restaurant asking her to sign a cast photo, Lisa scribbled on the faces of her former RHOBH co-stars. That is so classy!

According to toofab, Lisa said that the situation was misconstrued. Lisa stated that the check wasn’t meant for Kyle, but for the producer. Lisa commented, “But it was never about her. She made it about her.” Kyle would never do such a thing!

“It was never sent to her. It was sent to the producer who produces four of the shows I’ve been in,” Lisa shared. “How about that?” The restauranter also said that she left the waiter a $40 tip, well above the normal $26 tipping standard. Lisa was a bit salty when she was asked whether she or Kyle was the biggest tipper.  Lisa responded, “Come on — do you need to ask that?”

Now maybe we can put restaurant-gate behind us. Please.
