It is difficult to believe that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is filming season 10 without Lisa Vanderpump. Her decision to leave the show shocked fans–and probably her co-stars as well. Even though Lisa didn’t interact much with the other ladies for most of season 9, she was still the main storyline. Whether she liked it or not. The Puppy Gate scandal courtesy of Dorit Kemsley’s inability to follow the simple rules of her dog adoption contract was a drama that was unseemly on many levels and changed the dynamics of the show forever.
Kyle Richards, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and Dorit all probably underestimated Lisa’s potential reactions to assaults on her character. Especially in matters related to her honesty and her love of dogs. Vanderpump Rules star Lisa is committed to the welfare of animals and she recently spoke out on what she would like to be remembered for. And you can probably guess it is not for being a Housewife. Or Kyle’s former BFF.
What do you get when you leave a hit ensemble series amid rumors of treachery and trickery? If you are Lisa Vanderpump, you just might get another show. The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star quit during Season 9’s infamous #puppygate scandal. In the space of 18 months Lisa lost family members, a check, and anyone in the cast who previously held the title of “friend”. After Lisa’s departure, the remaining ladies rallied around each other blissfully unaware of the backlash they would soon face.
Fans were outraged and are now threatening never to tune in to RHOBH again! The boycotts are on and the fury is palpable, but fear not LVP stans, Bravo might just throw you a bone. Speaking of bones, back in March, the streets were talking about the possibility of a new show being created for Lisa. While she already has Vanderpump Rules, this spawn of Lisa’s endeavors would feature her dog rescue organization, Vanderpump Dogs. Imagine, a program conceived at the Ground Zero of the drama that lead to Lisa’s exodus. It almost makes you want to say, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
The relationships on Vanderpump Rules are changing constantly. These people can go from love interests, to exes, to mortal enemies, to best friends in five minutes time. And then change it all up again a second later. However, there’s one beef that has stood the test of time: Kristen Doute vs. Lisa Vanderpump. It’s not the most active “feud,” per say, but Lisa refuses to acknowledge Kristen’s existence unless she absolutely has to. She is also infamous for banning Kristen from events. Even by putting little to no effort into hating Kristen, she is truly getting under her skin.
This has to be a little awkward for Kristen, especially at all-cast events like BravoCon. Both Lisa and Kristen were in New York City last weekend, which included the Vanderpump Rules cast panel.
It’s hard to make a trio of best friends work. Usually, someone is on the outs. And that is exactly the case with Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder, Katie Maloney-Schwartz, and Kristen Doute. Currently, Kristen is on the outs, but each member of the Witches of WeHo have all taken a turn.
Stassi was on the outs when she ditched her friends and Pump Rules to move to NYC and begin anew. She came back into the fold a short time later, after practically begging to be back in the good graces of Kristen and Katie. For awhile, Katie took a break from the group and buddied up with Scheana Marie. But no one could survive a one-sided friendship for long, so Katie came back to the group. Kristen also took a turn on the outs for sleeping with Stassi’s ex, Jax Taylor. But why is Kristen on the outs this time?
It’s not about the pasta! It’s about The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City! This is not a drill! Andy Cohen announced at BravoCon that viewers are getting another Real Housewives show! Looks like Dallas is no longer the baby of the Housewives family. The majestic mountains and Mormon culture are going to be an interesting addition to the popular franchise.
One person who could shed light on what we might be able to expect is Lala Kent. The Vanderpump Rules star is actually from Utah, so she has firsthand experience on what they offer. If the cast of the new show is anything like Lala, fans won’t be disappointed. She’s one of the most outspoken and opinionated people on all of Bravo. Thankfully, she’s speaking out on her excitement for the new series!

Is it possible James Kennedy has won the battle over the bottle? It’s looking that way for the Vanderpump Rules DJ. Poor James had a time last season. He suffered from
mommy multiple family issues and the wrath of Tequila Katie Maloney most of the cast. Lala Kent hated everybody but especially James. Former stalker girlfriend Kristen Doute was obsessed determined to ruin him. And as a final twist of the knife, Lisa Vanderpump caved in fired James when he drunkenly fat-shamed Katie and he lost his regular gig at SUR.
With the exception of live-in love Raquel Leviss and his dog, it seemed James had a target on his back. But why tho? If nothing else, James often provided commentary that was similar to what the viewers were thinking. Yes, James had a relationship with alcohol, but to my recollection, no one in the Pump Rules cast could pass a morality test. After an explosive reunion, where James almost came to blows with Jax Taylor, it seems he has turned a corner. James has been working on repairing shattered friendships and staying sober. Our
second favorite Brit showed up at BravoCon and talked about his time on the wagon.
Is someone planing a comeback? Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ fans shouldn’t have been too surprised when Lisa Vanderpump called it quits last season. It was a particularly brutal one for the former housewife.
Fans of the show may be torn about whether or not Lisa should return. And it sounds as though Andy Cohen may be lurking around wondering the same thing. Is he concerned about viewers now that the former queen of rosé is gone?
BravoCon might be over, but the post event drama is still burning hot. So many of your favorite Bravolebs were in attendance for this iconic event. From The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to Vanderpump Rules. They were all there. However, if you were expecting a “moment” between Lisa Vanderpump and her former costars, it didn’t happen. How great would that have been though?
Lisa’s shocking exit from Real Housewives sent everyone into a frenzy. The woman some people have crowned as the Queen Housewife had enough and walked away. It’s been over a year since Lisa stopped filming with the other women, so maybe she’d be open to reconciliation. It turns out time does not heal all wounds. If you were hoping to see Lisa and Kyle Richards interact, you were majorly let down.
