The women of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have just started shooting Season 9, but it already looks like it could be a tough one for star Lisa Vanderpump. According to a new report, Vanderpump is not getting along with her co-stars, and that includes her close friend, Dorit Kemsley.
“There is beef between Dorit and LVP, and LVP and Teddi Mellencamp,” says an insider. “They did a cast shoot for the new promo shots, and Lisa wanted to shoot separately and do hair and makeup separately.”
Earlier this week, Lisa Rinna and Erika Jayne claimed that there was an RHOBH cast member who would not take group photos with the rest of the cast. And now, it looks like they were referring to Vanderpump because she didn’t appear in any of the behind-the-scenes videos and pics on their Instagram Stories.

In one of Rinna’s Instagram Live videos, she told fans that the women were sequestered in a room because someone was holding out and wouldn’t come out to shoot. Rinna and Jayne started questioning who it was and said they would have to add the hold-out later in “a computer-like way.”
Us Weekly is reporting that schedule changes do happen, and there are times when Bravo needs to accommodate the talent. But in Rinna’s video, it appeared that Vanderpump was being a diva and refusing to come out of her dressing room. Rinna has since deleted the video.
A source claims that the rift between Vanderpump and Kemsley, who joined the show in Season 7 as Vanderpump’s friend, involves a puppy from Vanderpump Dogs.
The insider says that there was a situation with Kemsley and a puppy who was biting her kids. Dorit and her husband, Paul (PK), are the parents of son Jagger, 4, and daughter Phoenix, 2. One of Dorit’s friends offered to take the puppy because it was aggressive and wasn’t improving. That friend ended up taking the dog to a shelter.

Vanderpump has denied that there is any puppy drama between her and her friend, but an insider says that animal lovers were sending Dorit’s kids death threats because of the situation. Apparently, some of the other housewives have gotten involved, including Vanderpump’s longtime friend Kyle Richards and RHOBH newcomer Denise Richards.
Fans noticed that no one from RHOBH wished Lisa Vanderpump a happy birthday this past weekend when she celebrated her 56th birthday.
New episodes of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will return to Bravo later this year.
