During the Season 9 premiere of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, it became obvious to fans very quickly that there was a massive divide between Lisa Vanderpump and the rest of the cast. As RHOBH fans know, this is not the first time that the ladies have ganged up on LVP, and it’s not the first time they have accused the restaurateur of leaking stories to the press.
In a recent interview with Melanie Bromley of E! News – a good friend of Vanderpump’s – the women talked about the first time LVP’s co-stars ganged up on her during Season 2. At that time, they accused her of leaking stories to Bromley, but the accusations weren’t true.

“You were accused in Season 2 of giving stories to me,” said Bromley. “And you were not giving stories to me.
“I was accused of giving stories. But, now tell me, who gave the stories?” asked Vanderpump.
“I can’t tell you who gave the stories,” said Bromley.
“But you know it wasn’t me,” said Vanderpump, to which Bromley replied, “I know it wasn’t you.”
Vanderpump went on to say that her co-stars also ganged up on her during Seasons 4 and 6, so this current season is the fourth time the bullying has happened. But this time around, she wasn’t as strong as she had been in the past because she was dealing with her brother Mark’s suicide, which happened just three months before they started filming Season 9.

LVP also thanked Bromley for making it clear and publicly stating that she has never leaked stories to her. However, she does feel betrayed by her friends in the cast because of their accusations.
She says that she hasn’t made a decision yet about returning to RHOBH for Season 10, but even though some of her seasons on the show have been rough, she is extremely thankful for the platform Bravo has given her.
Throughout the years, they have allowed Vanderpump to showcase her dog rescue center, her fight for marriage equality and the LGBTQ community, and her work with suicide prevention. She also has her spinoff Vanderpump Rules, which is a ratings hit for Bravo.
