Lisa Vanderpump isn’t on speaking terms with most of the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. However; she is still friends with Camille Grammer and Denise Richards. Lisa recently admitted that a reconciliation with one of her former best friends, Kyle Richards, and the rest of the RHOBH cast is unlikely. However; her time as a Real Housewife is not over. In fact, cameras for the RHOBH were filming Lisa’s Las Vegas opening of Vanderpump Cocktail Garden.
Lisa told ET, “I stopped filming halfway through the season. When you are a woman of integrity, and you’re a woman that works really hard and is very compassionate, and is very principally minded, and they keep coming at you and ganging up on you, I don’t know…”
Lisa stopped hanging out with the cast after being accused by them of leaking a story about co-star Dorit Kemsley to the tabloids. The story has turned into puppygate. The story goes that the dog, Lucy Lucy Apple Juice, was adopted by Dorit from Lisa’s Vanderpump Dogs rescue center. The dog ended up back at the center after being dropped off at a shelter. Teddi Mellencamp alleged that Lisa is behind it, but Lisa has denied it. LVP said, “I didn’t integrate with the other women after they constantly called me a liar.”
During a preview of the upcoming fight between Lisa and Kyle, Lisa says, “You came here to call me a liar!” Lisa recently explained, “I felt that once somebody says, I swear on my children’s life, as you saw [in the fight,] I would never question that, I just wouldn’t. So, for me, unless the dynamic changed radically, I don’t want people in my life that question me.”
Due to all of this, Lisa feels that a reconciliation with her co-stars is unlikely. She opened up, “I was searching for happiness at that time in my life, and I certainly didn’t find it with them. But you know what? I thank the audience for really, really supporting me.”
LVP is also thankful for the fans showing up for the grand opening in Las Vegas. She stated, “I was out there giving all the people waiting shots and cookies because the fans’ support is everything. They watch you for years; they feel like they know you and these people, some of them, they were there all day. So, to all of them, I really, really thank them, because you couldn’t do it without them. You really couldn’t.”
ET reports that Lisa continued to film for the show and that her opening was filmed by cameras for the RHOBH. Lisa hasn’t decided yet if she’s going to attend the RHOBH reunion or not.
Congrats to Lisa on her grand opening in Las Vegas! I’m so happy for her. I hope she comes to the reunion and I hope she will remain on the RHOBH. I can’t picture the show without her. It’s nice to see Lisa happy after going through a lot of sad situations. I have a feeling that with time, things with the rest of the cast will begin to mend.
