Why does Lisa Vanderpump talk about ‘RHOBH’ if she left?

Although Vanderpump left on a sour note through the back door, her legendary status on RHOBH will forever remain. Vanderpump gave that class, sophistication, and luxuriousness that the show is known for from the very beginning. The show has moved on, but some fans think the restaurant owner has not completely moved on from the show.

“Housewives? I had to leave, I got to a point where it was too negative for me,” Vanderpump said during an interview shared on Twitter. “At the time my brother had just died and I was looking for happiness in my life and it wasn’t a good time for me at all. To be the recipient of gang ups again, I just said, ‘OK,’ and walked away.”

After a fan saw the interview, they replied asking why she continues to talk about the housewives as she’s not in the franchise anymore.

“I’m asked about it,” Vanderpump replied, with the fan suggesting she shut down the reporters.

Another fan clarified that Vanderpump was only responding to what the reporter asked to which the reality star added, “Exactly, wish they wouldn’t.”
