And then there was Kyle Richards.
If you don’t have a life (welcome to the club!!!), you probably follow multiple Real Housewives fan pages on Instagram like I do – y’know, to keep up with the gals between seasons! Lisa Vanderpump has been curiously absent during much of the filming for the upcoming Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills season, and it could be that she knew she’d pale in comparison to the return of Camille Grammer (my theory that is most certainly not true) or that there was some spat involving Dorit Kemsley and a dog she adopted from Lisa’s organization and later returned (seems legit). There was a lot of questions about if she was even still in the cast since she didn’t go to Camille’s wedding, and it seems like she is quitting that bitch.
E! News says someone close to production confirmed Lisa will no longer be on the show:
“Lisa will appear in the majority of episodes this season.She has not been filming at every event, but fans can expect to see her throughout. The show will return to Bravo in early 2019.”
Honestly, after nine seasons, how many more times can she look at Kyle cry or poke fun at Lisa Rinna? Lisa V is typically the one most of the other women gang up on because she’s clearly Andy Cohen’s favorite and, presumably, commands an actual paycheck instead of the In-N-Out gift cards Bravo can get away with paying to the other cast members. Another snitch divulged more:
“Lisa has only filmed on a few occasions during the beginning of filming this season, and has been absent the remainder of the time.She has been refusing to film and…her interactions with the ladies have been solely negative. Lisa has still not returned to filming and as of now has no plan to. It’s too far gone, and Lisa agrees that she shouldn’t return at this point.”
Another snitch says the cast is over her, but hopefully that doesn’t include old cast member Adrienne Maloof because she’s going to that OG’s stomping grounds of Las Vegas.
UPDATE: A source (Giggy) tells TMZ that Lisa hasn’t quit yet, and wants people to focus on the California wildfires instead.
Eater reports Lisa will be opening Vanderpump Cocktail Garden at Caesars Palace, replacing a lounge that was owned by Elton John’s husband David Furnish.

It’ll include all the typical Vander-crap like rosé, pink everything, and I’m sure a fake Warhol portrait of Giggy, but this is really like a gay Sophie’s Choice: do we honor our Real Housewives Kween or do we boycott because it’s replacing an establishment once owned by the First Lady, er, Lad of the Gay Mafia?!
