It was recently reported that Lisa Vanderpump will most likely not be returning to “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” after she’s been missing during filming and cast trips. Her co-star Kyle Richards is fed up with LVP’s fan base asking where the elusive Housewife is.
On November 15, Radar Online reported: “According to a show insider, drama between the mogul and the other women, especially former best friends Kyle Richards, and Dorit Kemsley, and became “too much” for her to handle after the tragic death of her brother Mark in May, and a number of other all-consuming professional projects.”
Once the news hit, fans of the show were pretty much in agreement that if Lisa was out — so were they.
If you hear it from me…It has to be true.
Until then,not so much. pic.twitter.com/8KnLMwpI6z

However, the restaurateur herself took to social media to put the rumors to rest when she told followers to not believe anything that they hear unless it comes from her directly.
By then, it was too late. Viewers even took to her frenemy, Kyle Richards’ Instagram posts to ask where LVP was which Reality Blurb caught in a screenshot.
To one commentator, she responded: “Ask her”
To another, Richards said: “where’s lisa is the new where’s waldo.”
One fan said that they were sad to see how unkind Kyle was to Vanderpump. Kyle responded with a quip: “How was I unkind? Please explain… oh nevermind, You can’t. Because you don’t know anything about what is going on.”
Richards was also one of the first to address Lisa’s absence: “If she’s not there, it’s because it’s her choice. So, I mean, I love Lisa, and I have to respect that it’s her choice. People speculating or people saying, ‘Oh, she’s being bullied or excluded’ is not true. That’s not the case at all. So they’re going to have to watch this season and see themselves but, you know, she’s always included, and I guess if she wants to come around and show up, she will.”
What do you think is going on with Lisa? Will you watch the show if she leaves?
