Bravo’s main man Andy Cohen reveals that RHOBH will change in various ways moving forward. In fact, Andy admits that the future of RHOBH is really up in the air. LVP has played an “integral” role on the show since season 1 and her exit from RHOBH leaves a huge hole in the cast.
“I think it’ll go in new directions,” Andy told HollywoodLife about how the franchise will adapt without LVP. He added, “She obviously has been such an integral part of the show since the beginning. There’s no replacing her.”
However, Andy believes the show will move on without LVP and that the season 9 reunion proves it.
“But we have a team of all-stars on the show. I mean, if you look at that cast, it’s like…It’s a powerhouse group,” Andy confessed. “So I’m excited to see where it goes.”
Andy also confirms that Bravo will be adding “someone else” to the RHOBH cast to replace LVP.
As for LVP, Andy says he doesn’t think she’ll “be back at any time soon,” but admits the “door will be open” if she wants to return.
On the other hand, Andy does wish that LVP would have stuck around to “state her point of view” throughout the season and the at the reunion.
Andy also says that the RHOBH cast didn’t need LVP there to create drama.
“It actually was really dramatic and we moved the needle,” Andy revealed. “Some surprising conflict and some surprising people coming together also.”
The three-part Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 9 reunion continues airing on Tuesday, July 23, at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
