Lisa Vanderpump started her reality TV career on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She officially left the show in order to focus on her own spinoff series, Vanderpump Rules.
But as we all know, the Vanderpump Rules cast took a major hit this year. Four members were fired due to racism scandals, while another couple decided to quit while they were ahead. The show has not announced a filming start date for the 9th season, although we are told that there is one in the works.
But with all that in mind, Lisa has continued to move forward. She has a new show on E! and is now opening up to the idea of returning to RHOBH.
But she said she won’t consider returning unless a certain someone is fired from the show.
During a recent Watch What Happens Live appearance, Lisa Vanderpump warmed up to the idea of returning to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
If you recall, Lisa decided to leave the show, allegedly due to bullying and the cast turning against her. Although she denied the claims, she did not film the RHOBH reunion for her final season.
“Lisa is so done with the show and she doesn’t want to continue to talk about the ladies,” a source told Page Six at the time. “She doesn’t want to continue to talk about what transpired. She wants to move forward.”
But since Vanderpump Rules has been put on hold and her restaurants have been shut down for the majority of the last year, Lisa might be ready to re-consider her RHOBH paycheck.
During her Watch What Happens Live appearance, Lisa told Andy Cohen that she’ll only consider returning if there’s a complete cast firing, with the exception of Kathy Hilton.
“People ask me all the time am I going back? It’s been such a long time, and I’ve just got a lot going on … but I do love Kathy,” Lisa said. “Now if you could just get rid of the other five, then I think yeah there’s a possibility.”
Although she was slightly joking, we all know Lisa Vanderpump will only do what Lisa Vanderpump wants to do.
As for Lisa’s television endeavors, she’s got plenty going on!
Her new show, Overserved With Lisa, airs on E!, while a new show Vanderpump Dogs is set to air on Peacock.
But the biggest question fans have is when Vanderpump Rules will begin filming again!
Because the show revolves around Lisa’s restaurants, Andy Cohen has stated that the show has no plans to begin filming until the restaurants in Los Angeles are fully functioning again.
