On the heels of revealing her departure from the show that made her a household name, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump also confirmed she’s done with her former friends and costars. Despite the decaying connections, her alliance with production from Andy Cohen‘s famous channel remains unscathed.
“I have a great relationship with [Bravo]; I just don’t have a great relationship with the women,” the 58-year-old told Us Weekly at the Real to Reel: Portrayals and Perceptions of LGBTs in Hollywood event on June 6. “After 17 episodes of them bashing me, I think I’ve had enough of all of them.”
If you’re a fan of the show, you know it’s been a rough season for LVP, and it isn’t far off to say that the other ladies have built up a solid bond amid all of the drama over the course of the year. When asked if they saw her departure coming, the English entrepreneur was pretty frank.
“I think everybody knew,” she explained about her decision to leave the show. “It’s almost impossible for me to go back. How could I? It was too difficult.”
The restauranteur and her former pals have veered so far off the friendship road, no one has even reached out to try to lighten the mood. “I think I heard from Kyle once, but for the most part, anybody that had reached out, it was for filming,” she revealed. “It wasn’t to talk to me privately.”
We’re glad to hear Kyle Richards is still trying — despite several previous efforts this season — to clear the air with her former BFF, but judging by LVP’s attitude toward the women, it doesn’t seem to be fruitful. It might have something to do with the fact that Kyle, 50, has spoken out about Lisa as much as she has in her defense this season.
Though LVP is moving on to new things, we’ll see if they include dogs and rosé soon enough.
