Reality show powerhouse Lisa Vanderpump is isolating herself from the cast of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and her co-stars are not happy about it. Could the 58-year-old restaurateur be ready to walk away from the popular Bravo show?
The RHOBH cast is currently in the middle of shooting Season 9, but a new report claims that Vanderpump refused to come out of her dressing room for a recent photo shoot with her castmates.
“Lisa is making almost zero effort to interact with the rest of the women on the show — on camera and off,” according to insiders. “Other cast members are getting frustrated with Lisa’s isolation, and it’s approaching boiling point.”
Lisa, we all love and support you. If the rumors are true, we wouldn't blame you for leaving. We'd all stop watching.

So, what could be the reason that Vanderpump is refusing to interact with the rest of the RHOBH cast? TMZ claims that her alleged drama with Dorit Kemsley could be the source of their issues. After Kemsley adopted a chihuahua mix from Vanderpump’s West Hollywood animal rescue center, it ended up nipping at one of her kids. So, Kemsley gave the dog to someone else who took the dog to an animal shelter.
Vanderpump denied that she had any issues with Kemsley and explained that Kemsley’s dog didn’t go to a shelter. She did try to rehome the dog with a friend, but when that friend chose to abandon the dog at a shelter, they recovered the dog because all of Vanderpump’s dogs are chipped.

But, Reality Blurb says that there is obviously an unresolved issue between Vanderpump and the rest of the cast. Earlier this week, Erika Jayne talked about Vanderpump’s diva moment at the photo shoot and said that “facts are facts.”
Jayne also said that her other co-stars take it on the chin when they face hardship on the show, but Vanderpump is having trouble doing that. She added that it is an ensemble cast, but some people have forgotten that they aren’t the only ones on the show.
Lisa Vanderpump is the show. She is why we watch. Erika is fake, has a fake career that hubby bought. Walks around like she is something special. LVP has more class in her PINKY than all the other ladies.

Even though Vanderpump seems to be making minimal effort when it comes to interacting with the other Housewives, she is definitely keeping busy. In addition to her spin-off show Vanderpump Rules, she is a huge animal lover who runs her rescue, plus she owns multiple restaurants, like SUR, PUMP, and TomTom.
There is also speculation that Lisa Vanderpump is still grieving the sudden death of her brother, who died earlier this year from a drug overdose. And, that could be a reason why she is less invested in RHOBH.
New episodes of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will return to Bravo later this year.
