The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast is not at peace, even though Lisa Vanderpump skipped the RHOBH season 9 reunion and is not planning on returning to the show next season. However; nothing is set in stone yet. According to recent RHOBH reports, the cast thinks the Bravo network will bring Lisa back by allowing her an ally to join the show!
LVP announced prior to the taping of the reunion that she was walking away from the show. She said that she would probably not attend the reunion or return next season. According to Hollywood Life, “The ladies still believe Lisa isn’t walking away for good quite yet and they know her relationships with the network are strong, so they know they may try to keep Lisa and bring in an ally for her, so of course they’re all scared to lose their jobs. It’s still too soon to tell who will stay and who will go for next season.”
Sources added that the cast members were “disappointed and surprised” that LVP didn’t show up at the reunion. Sources explained, “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.”
The drama this season has revolved mostly around ‘Puppy Gate.’ However; co-star, Kyle Richards, insisted that the feud with LVP was much deeper. Kyle said on Jenny McCarthy’s Podcast, “It was about years of this sort of like, setting things up and the truth is — I said this at the reunion, which I’m not supposed to say…you know, if it had been Lisa Rinna, I could almost understand it because they don’t like each other. They’ve had issues. But this is supposed to be one of her best friends. It wasn’t about the dog, it was just a pattern.”
I could see LVP potentially returning to the RHOBH if she had someone close to her joining the cast! I do think that the situation was much deeper than just being about a puppy this season. I think it was hard for both LVP and Kyle. It was hard to watch their fallout as a viewer. I do think that they will repair their friendship down the road, it’ll just take time. It’ll be interesting to see what the final cast line-up will be for season 10 of the RHOBH!
Thoughts on this report? Will Bravo allow LVP to bring someone close to her on the RHOBH? Will LVP return? Thoughts on what Kyle had to say? Who do you want to be cast next season? Sound off below!
