Lisa Vanderpump is one of the OG Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which means that she was part of the show from the first season. Right now their filming season nine of RHOBH and rumors have been flooding in that Vanderpump is refusing to film and now is speculated that season nine will be her last season.
In October the cast of RHOBH, minus Vanderpump, went to Hawaii for fellow OG RHOBH housewife Camille Grammer’s wedding. Kyle Richards, another OG, threw shade at Vanderpump for choosing not to come on Instagram. She later deleted the comment.
After her absence from the wedding, Lisa Rinna claimed that Vanderpump hasn’t “shown up for work.” Rinna and Erika Jayne also alluded that filming was taking forever because one housewife refused to film with the rest of the cast. They didn’t drop names but fans have been connecting the dots and assume it’s Vanderpump who was being difficult.
Now the group is in Paris filming, but Vanderpump and Denise Richards are not there. Thus raising eyebrows once again about Vanderpump’s status on the show.
After speculation that she is off the show, Vanderpump has set the record straight about her housewife status. “I am in the show. I have not quit, and if I did quit, it wouldn’t just be a leaked story,” Vanderpump told Entertainment Tonight. “I would be upfront, and I have a lot of loyalty to the production company and the network.”
“But it has been a difficult season… But it’s been a difficult year for me personally, and the season was very challenging,” she continued. “So I’m in a lot of it, but there are some parts I skip, and I think people have seen that.”
Vanderpump’s brother Mark died in May and has affected her deeply. He was her only sibling and he had to sons of his own.
Vanderpump wouldn’t confirm if this season would be her last season and if she will sign on for season 10. Do you think season nine will be Vanderpump’s last season?
