It’s no secret that Lisa Vanderpump isn’t getting along with her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-stars but it turns out that Lisa’s drama with her co-stars may delay the premiere of season 9.
The drama happening between LVP and her co-stars has been all anyone can talk about when it comes to the upcoming ninth season of RHOBH.
The short story is that LVP hasn’t filmed with any of her co-stars in weeks, last I check it was six weeks, and continues to refuse to film with them.
Why? That’s unknown but rumor has it, the cast caught LVP in a lie and since then she’s cut them out of her life, on and off the screen.
Now, Hollywood Life is reporting that Lisa Vanderpump’s tension with her co-stars has pushed back the premiere of season 9.
“Lisa has been struggling emotionally and with her relationship with the RHOBH cast and it has been causing all kinds of issues for the show,” a source revealed to HollywoodLife. “Many around her are upset because they’ve been forced to push the premiere date back due to problems surrounding Lisa and the tension running so high with the cast this season. The other ladies feel they have to show up to work despite what they have going on in their lives, so the fact that she isn’t makes them feel disrespected even more.”
While filming for season 9 is currently underway, it was initially delayed because of LVP’s emotional distress following the unexpected death of her brother in April.
“Filming began later than usual, mainly due to Lisa not being mentally ready with the loss of her brother, and it’s just been one issue after another with her having challenges filming with the other ladies,” the source continued. “Vanderpump Rules, Lisa’s other reality show, usually airs alongside RHOBH, but nobody was expecting the kind of drama this season and the cast being so divided, so that might not happen.”
In fact, the issues between LVP and the rest of the RHOBH cast aren’t just causing problems for production. Sources say that LVP is thinking about quitting RHOBH altogether.
Apparently, LVP feels especially betrayed by friend and co-star Kyle Richards. Rumor has it that Kyle and Lisa got into a massive fight at the beginning of the season.
“Lisa really wants to leave the show, she has it on her mind at all times because she feels bullied by the other ladies and it really is getting her upset,” another source close to the show told HollywoodLife. “Lisa is most upset over Kyle not being on her side because they have both been through a lot with each other. That might be the straw that breaks everything. Lisa is just sick of all the drama and by not engaging with the women it has helpIt’sa little. Its a complete mess right now.”
No word on when season 9 of RHOBH will be premiering. Usually, RHOBH returns in early to mid-December along with Vanderpump Rules but Bravo hasn’t released any information to make us think that will be happening this year.
All, I know is I want RHOBH back on my TV screen ASAP! Get it together ladies and finish filming the season!
