After the season 9 reunion taped, Andy made it known that he would NOT be sitting down with Vanderpump for a one-on-one interview that would air during the season 9 reunion.
However, it seems that Andy may have had a change of heart after initially feeling “incredibly disrespected” by the OG Beverly Hills Housewife.
“Andy [Cohen] and Lisa [Vanderpump] have both spoken about her absence at the reunion, and although he was bothered by her choice not to attend, he still wants her to be involved, so there are lots of talks happening about Andy and Lisa filming something on her own,” a source close to production tells HollywoodLife.
“Lisa is very open to this idea, as she knows the fans would love to hear from her and see her film what will be her last episode of RHOBH. Andy is a businessman and he knows the reunion needs a little LVP to spice things up. At the end of the day, she is a staple on the show.”
Even so, adds the source, “Andy has also received a lot of heat from the other wives about giving Lisa special treatment, so the subject needs to be addressed in a fair and correct manner.”
It turns out while LVP had no interest in filming at the reunion, with her co-stars, she is willing to film a special segment on her own.
“Lisa would like to share her thoughts and feelings, but not with the other ladies around. She truly feels ganged up on and hurt from her point of view and there’s no fixing that in her eyes. Those friendships are over,” our source adds. “Andy and Lisa have spoken since she made her decision, and although he doesn’t want her walking away from the show, he knows it’s not his decision and her mind is totally made up. She’s really at peace with it.”
Last week Vanderpump announced that she’d be departing from RHOBH after nine seasons. After the reunion was filmed, Vanderpump confirmed to various media sources that she was officially done with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
