Lisa Vanderpump is opening up about why she decided to leave The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, plus what next season of Vanderpump Rules will be like. LVP recently appeared on Access Daily with hosts Mario Lopez and Kit Hoover to discuss the RHOBH and Pump Rules.
She shared she left the RHOBH after season nine because, “It was a very sad year for me with losing my brother and everything. I was very honest about that, and struggling with depression.”
Lisa revealed that she began filming Vanderpump Rules for season seven only two days after her brother’s funeral. However; she said she didn’t feel like she could return to the RHOBH. Lisa shared, “It was very difficult, the whole situation. They all started coming at me and it was all based around the whole dog fiasco. It got too b*tchy and I just suddenly thought, ‘That’s it, I’m done.'”
She added, “I had so much going on. I was opening TomTom, Vanderpump Rules is a big show, we have the dog rescue center, we were opening in Vegas. There was just so much and when it all kind of piled on top of me, and I was emotionally depleted anyway, I just said, ‘You know what? I’m done.'” LVP was over being accused for the whole ‘Puppy Gate’ fiasco after Dorit Kemsley adopted a dog from Vanderpump Dogs.
LVP shared, “I tried to kind of remove myself and detach myself from it.” She also said that the castmates were “aggressive” about her choice to leave the show.
Is she in touch with any of her former RHOBH co-stars? Lisa changed the subject and said, “Moving on!”
Vanderpump Rules is coming back for season 8. LVP dished, “It’s a very fast-moving show as you see from the trailer and it’s unbelievable that it came from a little idea and it’s eight seasons in. You see them grow up, and then some of them struggle to grow up.”
LVP shared, “It’s fantastic. It’s a great season.”
Vanderpump Rules season eight premieres January 7 at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
I’m going to miss LVP on the RHOBH. I’m hoping she returns to the show down the road. I’m super excited to watch next season of Pump Rules, it looks like it’s going to be an entertaining season!
