Lisa Vanderpump didn’t attend The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion for season 9. Fans were saddened and her RHOBH co-stars were reportedly shocked by her absence. The cast members were hoping to talk to her about all of the drama this season between them. Sources say that the cast members are “surprised and disappointed” that LVP skipped the reunion! Plus, it was reportedly hard to capture moments related to the ‘Puppy Gate’ drama this season with LVP’s absence at the reunion.
According to Hollywood Life, “The ladies of RHOBH were disappointed and surprised that Lisa Vanderpump didn’t show. They all really thought she would show and they all wanted the chance to talk to her calmly.” Before the reunion, Lisa hinted that she was going to leave the show and not attend the reunion. LVP’s focusing on her other projects, restaurants, charities and her organization, Vanderpump Dogs. According to insiders, “it was hard for the cameras to capture moments relating to the drama that were worthy enough to include.”
Sources said, “The drama from the reunion was difficult as all of the ladies are in a really good place. The ladies were there from 6am until almost 11pm as they were trying to capture as much footage as possible, but it was quite hard without Lisa there as they were forced to keep talking about someone who’s not there and they weren’t going to just stir up drama for cameras. They’re very much united right now. Lisa not attending was addressed at the top and all of the ladies were open and said how they felt. They all got to share their side of the story.”
Lisa’s final decision about going to the reunion was up in the air until the actual day of the filming. Bravo host, Andy Cohen, confirmed she didn’t show up through a live video on his social media. However; Andy said that “major things” were still happening during the reunion.
I’m looking forward to watching the RHOBH reunion! I don’t blame LVP for not wanting to attend after this intense season. I’m hoping that Andy will do some sort of one-on-one interview with LVP to capture her side. The reunion needs all of the ladies perspectives for closure – and to be fair. I have a feeling something with LVP is in the works! Stay tuned, loves.
