Lisa Vanderpump decided not to attend The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 9 reunion earlier this month after a difficult season. Shortly before the RHOBH reunion, LVP announced that she was leaving the show and not attending the reunion. It’s reported that LVP took a major pay cut by not going to the reunion, however; sources are saying that LVP believes she “earned” her paycheck and she has “no regrets” about not attending.
It wasn’t worth it for LVP to attend the RHOBH reunion. According to sources, LVP refused to sacrifice her “pride and dignity” just for the six-figure paycheck.
According to Hollywood Life, “Lisa took a heavy pay cut for not attending the reunion, but she doesn’t care at all. She feels strongly that one can’t put a price on standing up to bullies. She happily forfeited half her paycheck. Her pay cut was well into the six figures, as she is one of the highest paid Housewives in all the franchises because she’s an OG and the highest paid on RHOBH.”
The insider added that Lisa has “no regrets” about her decision to skip the reunion. They explained, “She knows she doesn’t need the money. And, although she feels she earned it and worked hard for it, there was no amount of money in the world that would’ve gotten her to attend the reunion taping.” Lisa stands by her decision. The insider added that LVP is, “completely content with missing out on the big pay day.”
Instead of attending the reunion, LVP kicked off Pride week at Eric Garcetti’s garden party in Los Angeles. LVP revealed to Hollywood Life after the reunion that it was a tough decision. She said, “They were my family. I’m sad that it came to this, but I don’t think I really had any other choice. You can only have the whole cast against you for so long. It was too difficult.”
I understand why LVP decided not to attend the RHOBH reunion. It was a difficult time for her this season. On top of that, she doesn’t need the money. I’ll continue to watch LVP on Vanderpump Rules. I hope someday she will return to the RHOBH. I think it’ll just take time!
