After eight long, drama-filled years, Lisa Vanderpump is finally pumping the breaks. According to Radar Online, Lisa will not continue filming on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for the remainder of the season, and reportedly has zero plans on continuing on with the show in future seasons.
According to a show insider who spoke with Radar Online, Lisa has been inundated with drama between herself and former close friends Kyle Richards and Dorit Kemsley, as well as other cast members on RHOBH. The feuds, coupled with the death of her brother Mark back in May and a whole host of burgeoning professional projects, helped Lisa make the decision to leave the show behind.
“She was dealing with grief, filming Vanderpump Rules, opening [new restaurant] TomTom, and running the Vanderpump Dog Foundation, ” the insider told Radar Online. “She was not equipped to handle Housewives, even before the drama happened.”
As Radar Online reported, her fight with housewife Dorit started after Dorit adopted a puppy through Vanderpump Dogs… and then left it with a local shelter after the dog “nipped” at her young children. As we ALL know, the easiest way to Lisa’s bad side is doing wrong by man’s best friend! Come on, Dorit, didn’t you see that one coming?
According to the insider, Lisa decided she will no longer be filming for RHOBH through the remainder of the year. She even skipped out on a cast trip to France, according to Us Weekly. “She has no plans to return to the show,” the insider added. “But who knows what the future holds.”
That’s true, we don’t know what the future holds for Lisa Vanderpump and the show that made her reality TV royalty. But we do know she will still be a part of her incredibly successful spin-off show Vanderpump Rules, saving dogs everywhere while running the Vanderpump Dog Foundation, and growing her already impressive restaurant empire.
The sky’s the limit for Mrs. Vanderpump and always has been, but we can’t say we won’t miss her SFM on RHOBH.
