Do we finally have evidence that Lisa Vanderpump is leaving RHOBH?
Andy Cohen is bringing six Real Housewives stars to the set of Watch What Happens Live this holiday season. The cast list includes original members of Bravo’s hit reality franchise — with the exception of one heavy hitter.
Cohen released a promotional image for the upcoming special, titled “O Come Of Faithful,” on social media. The photo featured Kyle Richards, Vicki Gunvalson, Ramona Singer, Bethenny Frankel, NeNe Leakes and Teresa Giudice.
All six women are original stars of their respective shows, but the photo did not include two other OGs who are still active: Lisa Vanderpump and Luann de Lesseps.

De Lesseps is currently on tour with her cabaret show, Countess & Friends, and has a show on the same evening as the special. With filming not starting until late in the evening, it is possible that de Lesseps has a short cameo.
But what about Vanderpump?
According to Bustle, Vanderpump’s absence on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills could be one reason why she wasn’t included in the special. Although she was a part of the new season early on, Vanderpump reportedly refused to film prior to the finale.
Vanderpump even skipped the cast trip to France and admitted that things got a little complicated with her co-stars in a recent interview.
“This season was very difficult for me… I kind of floundered this season,” Vanderpump shared. “I’m in most of the season, but it got a little bit complicated.”
Fans were quick to notice that Vanderpump was not featured on Cohen’s promotional photos. In fact, Richards was forced to turn off her comments because fans kept asking her questions about her RHOBH co-star.
Unfortunately, Richards did not comment on Vanderpump’s absence. Here’s to hoping Cohen brings it up during the special or that Vanderpump surprises everyone and shows up at the last minute.
Bravo has not commented on the rumors surrounding Lisa Vanderpump.
The holiday special of Watch What Happens Live is scheduled to premiere Dec. 20 on Bravo.
