Lisa Vanderpump Confirms Bravo Wants Her Back on ‘RHOBH’!
Lisa Vanderpump might be returning to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills a lot sooner than expected. The reality star left the hit series prior to the season 9 reunion, and most fans suspected that her time on the show was over. But after winning the Best Female Reality TV Star for 2019, Vanderpump confirmed that Bravo has asked her to return to the RHOBH next season.
Vanderpump opens up about her RHOBH future
Lisa Vanderpump experienced a lot of drama in season 9 of RHOBH. Most of her issues stemmed from a pet adoption scandal with Dorit Kemsley that fans dubbed “Puppygate.”
The drama got so heated that Lisa Vanderpump decided to leave the series midway through the season. She also declined to appear at the reunion and most fans did not expect Bravo to invite her back.
But in a recent interview, Vanderpump revealed that the exact opposite happened. According to All About The Real Housewives, Vanderpump claims that Bravo execs have already extended an invitation for her to appear in season 10 of the RHOBH.
“Bravo, even you know, said to me, ‘What about in the future?’ I’m like, This is now. And that’s then. I’m really in a different place in my life now,” she stated.
Based on her comment, it is difficult to say when Vanderpump will return to the series. Until we learn more, fans can expect to see her return to action in her RHOBH spin-off, Vanderpump Rules, which returns to Bravo in January.
Lisa Vanderpump opens up about Denise Richards
While Vanderpump did not confirm that she will be back next season, she did talk about her relationship with Denise Richards.
Richards joined the series last season and with all the drama surrounding Vanderpump, the two never got a chance to get to know each other. For Vanderpump, she would love the opportunity to make friends with Richards, whom she says was very nice to her on set.
“With Denise, I really don’t know her very well, she was always really quite nice to me,” she explained. “I really wanted to rebuild it with Denise. I’m sure she’s a very nice woman.”
Lisa Vanderpump noted that she heard about how Richards got into some drama towards the end of the season. Even still, the reality star believes she could have established a lasting friendship with Richards if they had been given the chance.
If Vanderpump returns next season, perhaps she will get her wish and become fast friends with Richards. That, of course, will depend on Vanderpump’s plans and whether or not she wants to come back after everything that happened.
What about her award?
Until we learn more, Vanderpump was recently named the Best Female Reality TV Star for 2019. Vanderpump, who starred on RHOBH and Vanderpump Rules this year, was given the award from the NFTA National Film & TV organization.
Taking to social media, Vanderpump thanked fans for voting for her and said that she was “honored” to take home such a prestigious award.
“Thank you for voting for me as your Best Female Reality TV Star! I’m honored to have won the NFTA National Film & TV Award,” Lisa Vanderpump shared.
She later shared photos from the award ceremony on social media and looked super proud to be honored at the ceremony. She also expressed gratitude for all of the fans who showed up at this year’s BravoCon in support of her.
Vanderpump has been a part of the RHOBH since the very beginning. If she does not return, this will be the first season without her. She also owns a slew of restaurants around the world and has one of the busiest schedules in the business.
Lisa Rinna takes a shot at Lisa Vanderpump
With Vanderpump seemingly out of the picture for season 10 of the RHOBH, her former co-star, Lisa Rinna, just accused her of leaking a story about the upcoming season.
In recent weeks, rumors have surfaced that the new season has been plagued by boredom, reports that Rinna says originated from Vanderpump.
Rinna claims that Vanderpump is trying to sabotage the new season because she is no longer a part of the show. Vanderpump has not said anything about the accusations, so we will have to wait and see how this one plays out.
As far as the lack of drama is concerned, Rinna assured fans that season 10 is packed full of it. For those who are still doubting her, Rinna advised the naysayers to tune in and find out what the new season is all about.
Season 10 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is expected to premiere on Bravo next year.
Fans can watch Lisa Vanderpump on the new season of Vanderpump Rules when it premieres January 7 on Bravo.
