Lisa Vanderpump Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - RHOBH

Lisa Vanderpump Reveals She’s One Of The Only Real Housewives To Never Have Asked Anything To Be Edited Out!

Lisa Vanderpump has her tea, and sips it, too.

There is no doubt about it, that Lisa Vanderpump is the star frontrunner of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. With the exception of her friend Kyle Richards, she is the only RHOBH star to remain on every season from the beginning. It turns out, she is also one of the only Real Housewives to never ask to have parts removed from the show!

In a recent interview with The New York Times, she revealed, “I have been told that I am one of the only Housewives to never have asked to have anything edited out.” She added, “But I have asked for things to be kept in.” In the article she talked about the importance of being authentic. In her mind, being authentic is crucial for success. Lisa also insisted that none of the scenes are staged. “They don’t have to produce us,” she explained.

So what does she think about her portrayal on the reality show? She said, “I’ve been accused of being cold or removed, but I think that’s because I wasn’t as volatile, or I don’t have a knee-jerk reaction.” Many of her costars have accused her of being the mastermind behind the drama, while having a nice facade. During filming Lisa likes to remain calm, cool and collected. She never throws objects or temper tantrums. Nor does she shout using vulgar language. Her digs are much more playful, rather than confrontational.

The confrontation doesn’t just happen in Beverly Hills on the show. Drama follows them even while they are on vacation. As she told Bravo, Puerto Rico and Dubai were her least favorite trips, due to the fact, “when they were ganged up, that was really mean.” See Lisa talk about her good and bad trips with the cast in this clip!

Lisa doesn’t often take the bait, when it comes to drama and gossip. For example, when reporters ask her if her costars are just jealous of her position on the show, she stated, “Anybody who says it’s jealousy is stupid, because you’re setting yourself up for failure. The next statement is, ‘What have you got to be jealous of,’ right?” 

I am not shocked to learn that Lisa Vanderpump is one of the few Real Housewives to not blame editing for her portrayal. In addition, to not asking for things to be edited out. I feel like she has nothing to hide. She has been filming RHOBH for 8 seasons and knows how it works. Lisa is familiar with what goes on behind-the-scenes too, as she is an executive producer of her spin-off, Vanderpump Rules. I hope that Lisa keeps sipping, and spilling, the tea for the rest of the season that is airing now!

Are you surprised that Lisa Vanderpump has never asked for anything to be edited out of the show? Do you think she is genuine and authentic, or generates her image and calculates the drama she stirs on the show? Do you watch Vanderpump Rules? Sound off below!

  • Ha. Her “playful ” digs s are what lead to confrontations !
    Meh it’s whatever . I thought she asked quite a few times to leave her family stuff and personal things left alone ? Thought that was an issue with other castmembers in the past ? Well if this is true then cool if not , no sweat off my back

  • LVP is too clever to be caught doing anything she regrets on camera, therefore she is probably right she maybe never has to be asked to edit things out. Other housewives are more genuine and wear their heart on their sleeves. A lot of them don’t filter themselves for the cameras, they are willing to show you their good, bad and ugly.

    • I think that too . She maneuvers well lol!! I give her some credit for that . Can’t hate on her for that although annoying because others seem more ” open”

  • There was that weird season or two with Cedric. Maybe she didn’t ask things to be edited out, but she probably asked for things, or people, not to be filmed. I like this purple/black blouse on her instead of the lace over bras that she wears most seasons.

  • I can believe that LVP doesn’t whine to the producers about editing.
    I can believe that LVP shows viewers her real reactions, which are low key & measured.
    I can believe that LVP feels her cast mates have no reason to be jealous of her, because she has no envy toward anyone.
    However, I cannot believe that the scenes aren’t scripted, even partially. Most of the scenes look & sound very scripted.

    • This is my take on reality TV, at least the HW’s version of it. They plan out where they are going. They talk about what is going to be said, but what they say, how they react and respond, for the most part is authentic.

      • In many cases, your supposition seems plausible. However, in certain scenes, the reactions also feel very staged. ex: When BFrankelstein walked across the Brooklyn Bridge with raMOANer, BF’s lines were totally scripted when she was speaking about her problem with Jill. At first, the line didn’t come out right. She repeated herself & corrected the misstatement. It was something like: “If it’s good for me I win, it’s bad for her. Uh, if it’s bad for me I lose, it’s good for her she wins. Uh… Nobody wins.” She was clearly stumbling on her own words trying to be clever & prophetic. FAIL!!! This past season, when raMOANer was trying to berate BFrankelstein at Dorinda’s house, during her “Are you kidding me?” tirade, the camera caught BF smirking and trying to look upset. It was a poor display of acting-reacting. I still believe those 2 hags decided to have a fight in order to have a long lasting SL for the season. Otherwise, what else did they have to do???

        • You are right. I tend to watch the majority of these shows while I’m doing other things so I don’t always catch the nuances, reactions and flubs. I used to be able to dedicate an hour to watching the shows but my mind tends to wander and I’m multi-tasking these days.

          • I’m now the same way. Originally, I gave the shows my full attention. I also watched reruns. By now, I barely watch them. I’m doing other things and the shows have been reduced to background noise. I never bother to watch reruns anymore. The guilty pleasure has changed to guilty boredom.

  • LOVVVE the gorgoeus purple top and that bag! Ohhhh yum ???she looks stunning
    But come on, nothing is ever scripted? ???

  • Queen LVP

    Of course she is authentic, remember in season one – the whole cast bitched about LVP always being at work, cuz they were building
    Pump….well the cast got it with both barrels.

    of course she is like all RH – she can’t believe they bring up her issues…then they cry like babies…when she does the same to them!

    • Sammy, LVP is the only one I like on Beverly now. The show is so boring. As I told you before. The most interesting scene was Ken holding the puppy in his shirt.

      Oh, I have to add, Duhrit is crazy – thank you Boy George. What the what is with her and her entitled self? She was mostly well liked last season. Guess she let a little lime light go to her head. She’s embarrassing this season.

      • Awww! Puppy in the shirt was super adorable. My favorite scene so far was when LVP & Kyle gave the dog a bath, it actually made me LOL in my living room.
