OG Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump has announced she will not continue filming the show's upcoming ninth season and has no plans to continue on with the show. According to reports, the drama with her cast members as well as her grief from her brother's death earlier this year have made the show "too much" for Vanderpump to continue, according to RadarOnline.
Tensions have run high between Vanderpump and her fellow housewives for years — that's the whole point of the show, ladies — but in recent seasons she's been unable to smooth over the squabbling as well as in the past. During season eight, she fought with both Kyle Richards and Dorit Kemsley, and now it seems that Vanderpump doesn't have the energy or inclination to mend fences. Radar recently reported that Vanderpump and Kemsley got into a huge fight after Kemsley adopted a puppy from Vanderpump dogs only to later drop it off at a shelter when it "nipped" at her children.
According to insiders, Vanderpump skipped the recent cast trip to France. “She has no plans to return to the show,” the insider explained. “But who knows what the future holds." However, the Beverly Hills matriarch will continue to film her spinoff show Vanderpump Rules.
