The gathering, which Lisa called a “great success,” raised funds for domestic and international dog programs geared around overpopulation, abuse and more.

Mario Lopez and his wife Courtney played host for the 3rd annual event, which was also attended by Lisa’s Vanderpump Rules costars like Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright.

Yet none of her RHOBH costars showed up. So what gives? A source close to US Weekly claimed that Lisa and Ken actually wanted them there for the big night.

“It’s bulls**t to say the women weren’t invited. They iced out the gala and chose not to attend,” the insider claimed. The source also alleged that Lisa and Ken “didn’t invite anyone except performers,” but were happy that the VPR cast came out.

“All of the VPR cast was there and they did a lot of the heavy lifting when it came to auction prizes and spending their money on auction items,” the source continued. “They went on their own choosing and out of the goodness of their hearts. They didn’t even film either of the shows at the gala.”

Her entire cast was back in town from their vacation in Paris (Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Dorit KemsleyErika Jayne, Teddi Mellencamp), however the source insisted they did not want to attend. “Kyle and Dorit have been before and didn’t go this year, even though they were back from their trip,” adds the insider. “Erika Jayne and Lisa Rinna have never been … They could have come and supported Lisa, even the foundation.”

Hold up! Another source countered what the original one claimed, saying that Lisa only invited RHOBH newbie Denise Richards (she attended her wedding earlier this year), a move that hurt her longtime friend Kyle.

Tensions have been on the rise between Lisa and the other women following an incident that occurred with Dorit’s dog.  She’s missed out on several filming opportunities with her cast as well, including Camille Grammer’s Hawaiian wedding back in October.
