Lisa Vanderpump Shades Former 'RHOBH' Costars, Says She'd Return To Bravo Series If They 'Cleaned House'
There's no love lost for Lisa Vanderpump!
The 61-year-old restaurateur teased she would consider a return to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but only under one condition — Bravo would have to axe most of the cast.
When asked about her return to the beloved reality TV series, she candidly responded, “With this cast? No, it'd be impossible,” she spilled to Entertainment Tonight.
“I hear Garcelle [Beauvais] is very nice, and Sutton [Stracke], I hear is doing a good job. I haven't watched the show. As I said, it's been, what, three years now? It's 2018 that I left. I haven't watched the show. And I don't think that's going to happen anytime soon. Unless they kind of cleaned house, then maybe,” she continued.
“It'd be great. Just be Sutton, Garcelle, and me, right?,” she jokingly added.
Vanderpump abruptly quit RHOBH halfway through the ninth season. The mother-of-two recently opened up on her decision to walk away.

“I had to leave. I got to a point where it was too negative for me,” she dished to Yahoo!. “At the time, my brother had just died, and I was looking for happiness in my life. It just wasn’t a good time for me at all. To be the recipient of gang-ups again? I just said, ‘Okay,’ [and] I walked away, but I did do nine and a half years. It was a long time. It wasn’t like I was on it for a minute!”
The beloved series — which premiered in October 2010 — currently stars Erika Jayne, Lisa Rinna, Kyle Richards, Dorit Kemsley, Beauvais, Stracke, Crystal Kung Minkoff and socialite Kathy Hilton.
RHOBH's 11th season was dominated by Jayne’s legal woes. The Sharknado 4 actress filed for divorce from estranged ex Tom Girardi in November after 20 years of marriage.
Within weeks, the estranged couple was embroiled in a messy lawsuit amid allegations they embezzled money intended for the families of the victims in the Lion Air Flight 610 plane crash that took place in 2018.
The Broadway star was then slapped with a lawsuit demanding she pay back $25 million owed to creditors they claim furnished her lavish lifestyle. OK! learned the blonde beauty’s legal team is "actively” working on resolving the matter.
“I gave her a week to just voluntarily return the money, but she never did," attorney Ronald Richards said, adding: “I can’t get into the settlement discussion, but we are trying to resolve the case with her attorney. This is the $25 million that [Girardi’s] law firm paid on behalf of Erika to cover her expenses over a 12-year period.”
