Lisa Vanderpump may have exited the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after season nine this past June. However, the restaurateur admitted that Bravo had already contacted her to make her grand return to the series.
The 59-year-old shed some light on her RHOBH future at the National Film & TV Awards on Tuesday, December 3. She revealed to Us Weekly, “Bravo, even you know, said to me, ‘What about in the future?’ I’m like, This is now."
“And that’s then. I’m really in a different place in my life now," the mother of two continued. Lisa left the franchise on good terms with costar Denise Richards. However, she left without patching things up with longtime castmates Kyle Richards, Dorit Kemsley, Lisa Rinna, Erika Jayne and Teddi Mellencamp.
“With Denise, I really don’t know her very well, she was always really quite nice to me. I heard — I didn’t watch the show — that she got caught up in nastiness against me at the end or whatever, but I didn’t have a relationship with her prior to the show,” the SUR owner told the outlet of Denise, 48. “It wasn’t like there was any existing cohesion, or a thing like, I really wanted to rebuild it with Denise. I’m sure she’s a very nice woman.”
The London-born reality star also made an appearance at BravoCon 2019 this past November where she attended alongside her cast. Lisa didn't see any of her former costars but she did "feel the love" from fans at the convention.
“When I walked on the stage I felt the love, but I think people are so invested in our lives and they saw the kind of trials and tribulations and me losing my brother, then being kind of, eschewed by housewives, them kind of all turning on me together, and then me losing my mother at the same time, it was all very convoluted, complicated,” she explained to Us Weekly. “I think the fans really kind of go with you on the highs but they’re also there with you with the lows. To me, I don’t want to call people fans because what are they a fan of? I feel I’m a normal person documenting my life. But the people that watch and supported me, the comments, the love, endless wonderful messages that people have really helped me when I’ve been at my lowest.”
Last month, LVP gave RHOBH newcomers Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke some advice on dealing with the housewives. The actress and the party planner joined the show for season 10. Lisa told HollywoodLife.com in November, "Good bloody luck to them. All of them…hide under the table. Run! I don’t know either of them. I don’t know them, but I do wish them luck. Good luck. That’s what I can say."
