Earlier this summer, Lisa Vanderpump announced that she would not be returning to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after starring on the show for nine seasons. LVP stopped filming with the cast halfway through the season because the #Puppygate scandal led to a falling out between her and her co-stars, and she also chose to skip the Season 9 reunion. At this point, it’s been nearly a year since she has talked to most of the RHOBH cast, but she appears to have a problem with putting all of this behind her because she continues to slam her former friends on social media.
Vanderpump’s never-ending war with Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp continued in late-July when Richards posted a 29-tweet rant about her experience during Season 9 and went off on LVP.
If you know me you know #RHOBH is my sport. This season was the first time I ever had to stop watching ANY show ever because of how nasty it got. I had to break up with all the women except @LisaVanderpump – it’s been traumatic but I got you LVP 🥺😭

“If you’re going through a hard time, then you would think you would be coming from a different place. Not scheming about how to make your friend look bad. Your close friend,” wrote Richards. “The problem is it was not new behavior due to her having a hard time.”
RHOBH fans had a field day with Richards’ tirade, and when one fan tweeted that Season 9 of RHOBH was the “season of lies and deception. They all need to go.” Vanderpump replied, “exactly.”
An insider says that the restaurateur is disappointed over the accusations her co-stars made against her, and it’s hard for her to sit back and not say things on social media when they are still taking digs at her.
“Until they stop talking about her on social media, she has no intentions of stopping when she feels the need to speak up or defend herself,” the source told Hollywood Life.
The insider also claims that LVP will not watch new episodes of RHOBH, but she will continue to set the record straight and defend her reputation.
I'm not sure if you ever rewatched #RHOBH @LisaVanderpump , but Kyle has had it in for you since the beginning. It seems like she has tried to create a storyline about you being dishonest from the start. Did you ever notice that?

Now that she is done with RHOBH, Vanderpump is focusing on her restaurants and her philanthropic work with the Vanderpump Dog Foundation. LVP also serves as executive producer on Vanderpump Rules.
As for the rest of the cast, rumor has it there could be a major shakeup ahead of Season 10. An insider claims that no one is safe from the chopping block except for Kyle Richards and Denise Richards.
Bravo has not made any cast announcements yet, but the ladies are scheduled to begin production on Season 10 very soon.
