Bravo star Lisa Vanderpump isn’t yet sure of her season 6 return to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Although the franchise simply wouldn’t be the same without her, the reality star and owner of several Los Angeles restaurants recently confirmed she hadn’t yet been asked back.
According to a June 5 report by Entertainment Tonight Online, the Bravo star was in attendance at a book party for Real Housewives of Miami star Lea Black, when she explained that while she’s had a good run with the network thus far, a season 6 return is uncertain.
“You know what, that’s the million-dollar question isn’t it? I don’t know. I mean, I’ve done five years and it’s been an incredible time. It’s up to Bravo. Everybody’s talking, doing negotiations. So, we’ll see. I’m busy doing Vanderpump Rules, and I’m running my businesses, and doing my charities. But it’s always been an amazing experience.”
The Bravo star went on to address her co-star Kim Richards’ latest sobriety struggles.
“I know she’s been going through a lot, you know, and I just hope she gets help. She needs it.”
As fans of the Bravo star have surely heard, Richards was arrested in April at the Beverly Hills Hotel after reportedly becoming belligerently drunk, and becoming a disruption to fellow guests at the hotel’s Polo Lounge. Following the arrest, and two stints in rehab (following her second admittance, Richards remains in sober living), Richards was reportedly fired from the show ahead of season 6.
When asked about Richards’ absence during the upcoming sixth season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the Bravo star explained, “When the dynamic changes, it always affects the show but nothing has been decided about anybody that’s going back. Me included, you know?”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, the Bravo star spoke of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 6 during an interview with Extra TV‘s Mario Lopez last week. Speaking to Lopez, Vanderpump joked about possibly being fired by Bravo.
“I don’t know…I didn’t want to go back last season, and there was a bit of persuasion, to be honest, because it was such a horrible situation, but this season’s been fantastic. I had a really good time, but you never know, I might get the boot, I might get fired!”
The Bravo star has starred on the series since 2010, when Vanderpump began her role as a full-time cast member.
