Lisa Vanderpump has returned to the Bravo reality series for her sixth season, after starring for years in a full-time role. Also returning to the show are Yolanda Foster, Eileen Davidson, Lisa Rinna, and Kyle Richards.
Although the official cast hasn’t yet been announced, all of the ladies mentioned above have been spotted filming in Los Angeles. Their roles, however, whether full-time or part-time, have yet to be established.
During the fifth season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Lisa Vanderpump’s friendship with Brandi Glanville came to an end, and so did Glanville’s role as a full-time housewife. In June, Glanville announced on Twitter that she had not been asked back to her full-time position, but claimed she could still return for season 6 in a limited role. However, months later, Glanville doesn’t appear to have filmed any scenes, and according to a new report, she may not appear at all during season 6.
On Monday, a source told the New York Daily News’ Confidenti@l, “[Brandi Glanville] told me they asked her to come back, but the money is so small that she basically said, F you. They wanted her to be on just a couple of episodes, so it’s really not worth her while.”
According to the report, Lisa Vanderpump’s former friend had been offered around $15,000 per episode to film a guest spot for the show. The offer, which was reportedly presented to her sometime during season 6 production, was even less than the reported $16,000 per episode she was awarded with when she first joined the show during its second season.
During season 2 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Glanville was brought to the series in a part-time role by her then-friend Adrienne Maloof, the former neighbor of Lisa Vanderpump. Then, ahead of season 3, Glanville was upgraded to a full-time housewife and her salary was raised to $500,000 per season.
Following Glanville’s demotion, two new housewives were brought to the series, Erika Jayne and Kathryn Eichstaedt Edwards. In an interview with PEOPLE Magazine weeks ago, Lisa Vanderpump spoke of Jayne, failing to officially confirm her role on the show, but speaking highly of the pop singer.
“I like her very much. She’s a fun girl with a story to tell,” Lisa Vanderpump told the magazine during her Hero Dog Awards luncheon event in August. “I can’t tell you whether she’s in the cast. If she was in the cast hypothetically, I think she would be a great addition. She’s funny and she’s risqué, but she’s also got a great head on her shoulders.”
In addition to her role on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Lisa Vanderpump has also been busy with her spinoff series, Vanderpump Rules, which is set at SUR Lounge, one of her three Los Angeles restaurants. The series was launched in 2013 and was an instant hit with viewers of Bravo, and with the majority of Real Housewives fans. Production wrapped on Vanderpump Rules season 4 weeks ago, and the series is set to debut on Bravo on Monday, November 2, at 9 p.m.
