British restaurateur Lisa Vanderpump decided that she isn’t returning to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The reality star confirmed that she was done with the show when asked at the 7th Annual Real to Reel: Portrayals and Perceptions of LGBT’s in Hollywood and answered with a simple “yes.” After nine seasons Vanderpump is relinquishing her crown.
The Bravo Star continued, “I made the decision to leave. It was a very difficult year for me, personally and professionally. I had wonderful things happen this year, opening up and TomTom and the cocktail garden In Vegas. The Housewives, it’s just, it’s emotionally too difficult to deal with.”
There was speculation that Lisa Vanderpump’s time on ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ was coming to an end when she didn’t show up to the season 9 reunion taping. Back in 2010, she joined the original cast of RHOBH for the first nine seasons. Not being part of the RHOBH series will not stop Vanderpump from being involved in reality television. Bravo launched her spinoff, Vanderpump Rules which focused on her and husband Ken Todd’s West Hollywood restaurant SUR, in 2012. Vanderpump has plans on continuing to film her show, which just finished its seventh season. She will be missed, but all you can do is keep it pushing!
