Lisa Vanderpump did not attend The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion for season 9. LVP decided shortly before the reunion was to be taped, that she was not going to attend the RHOBH reunion, or return next season. Of course, LVP’s reunion absence was a big topic of discussion. According to E News! the cast all wanted LVP to show up at the reunion and clear the air.
The ladies thought that LVP would walk in and make a grand entrance, however; she didn’t show up. Kyle Richards had brought Lisa’s unopened birthday present for her to the reunion. Kyle said, “I think that it was really a big mistake not to be here. If she had been here today, would have all loved to have been able to work through it, even if it meant agreeing to disagree.” The rest of the cast agreed, but Dorit Kemsley said that she doesn’t think LVP is capable of agreeing to disagree.
The cast was asked why they thought LVP didn’t show up for the RHOBH reunion. Kyle explained, “I think that she doesn’t want to face any of us because she has been unmasked. The fact that she was called out, with what originally happened at Vanderpump Dogs. Why would you do that to someone that you care about? That was the biggest issue. So I think that she can’t face that, so she’s focusing on the Radar over and over and over again so we can not talk about what actually happened at Vanderpump Dogs.”
During the reunion taping the ladies thought that LVP had arrived, however; it was Camille Grammer who made an appearance.
Teddi Mellencamp apologized for getting involved in the ‘Puppy Gate’ situation. She explained that she was mad at Dorit for something that had happened before filming. Teddi is an accountability coach and she said that she takes full responsibility for her role in this all. However; Teddi said that she holds Lisa V responsible.
I’m looking forward to watching the rest of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion episodes! Stay tuned!
