And then there was one. Lisa Vanderpump will not be attending the season nine 'RHOBH' reunion, set to film tomorrow, according to PEOPLE. She is also not returning to the series for season 10, meaning Kyle Richards Umansky is now the only OG from this franchise left standing. "The objective of the reunion is to reunite, right? And I have no inclination to reunite with the women who've been harassing me for 10 months now. So in all probability, no," LVP shared DailyMailTV in response to whether or not she would be in attendance at the reunion. It had been very much up in the air as to whether or not we would see her sitting on the couch with her fellow cast mates Dorit Kemsley, Umansky, Lisa Rinna, Teddi Mellencamp, Erika Jayne, and "friend" Camille Grammer Meyer. Rinna said previously this is their job and part of the job is to attend reunions, meaning LVP should show up, regardless of how she feels. It all began when Kemsley and her family adopted a pup from Vanderpump Dogs, LVP's shelter but then had some troubles with it. Instead of bringing it back to VD, the dog somehow ended up in a shelter, and when LVP found out, it obviously caused some drama. Soon, a game of telephone ensued between some employees of VD and Mellencamp thus Puppygate.
No one knew who to trust and Mellencamp felt like a puppet. Kemsley felt betrayed and she believed LVP had sold stories about her to both Radar and TMZ. When Umansky was asked by her and LVP's friends and fellow housewives about the probability of this being something LVP would do, she could not dispute it. She went to confront LVP and all hell broke loose. This is a bad situation with social media taking sides, fans saying they won't watch without LVP who also has another show on Bravo, 'Vanderpump Rules.' Now, she has also shared she will not return for season 10 of the series, saying the ladies have made it "impossible" to go back. Though going to the reunion is probably in the ladies' contracts, an extreme circumstance would keep them out, example Luann de Lesseps going to rehab on RHONY. However, LVP's former co-star, Adrienne Maloof did miss a reunion one year and that was her last season on the RHOBH so this could be LVP's swan song. Or, she could have talked to Andy Cohen, the master at Bravo and they could have planned for this to be her exodus to see what her co-stars would have to say to make the reunion just that much juicier.
What do you think and will you still watch without her? Or should this zip code hang up its rose you say? Let us know!
