Is Lisa Vanderpump going to be a part of the Season 7 cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?
Earlier this week, as Variety reported on April 27, Bravo announced the renewal of several series, including The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but so far, there have been no reports regarding whether or not Lisa Vanderpump would be rejoining her co-stars for the new season.
While Andy Cohen, creator of the Real Housewives franchise, did take to Twitter on April 26 where he confirmed there was “no way” he would fire Lisa Vanderpump’s co-stars, Lisa Rinna, Erika “Jayne” Girardi, Eileen Davidson, and Yolanda Foster, there was no mention of Lisa Vanderpump at all.
Lisa Vanderpump has starred in a full-time role on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills since the show kicked off in 2010, but last year, she admitted she was a bit overwhelmed with her many responsibilities, which include a role on Vanderpump Rules, a pet clothing line, a home decor collection, and three Los Angeles restaurants.
In June of last year, ahead of filming on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 6, Lisa Vanderpump spoke to Radar Online revealing, “I have a lot of things going on right now, but I have always been a business woman.”
“I am also right in the middle of filming Vanderpump Rules which takes up quite a lot of my time at Sur,” Lisa Vanderpump continued. “It is all positive and it also gives me a platform to support the causes that I am passionate about. GLAAD being one of them.”
At the same time, a source added, “Lisa has so many other things going on right now that she really does not have the time for the added drama that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills brings into her life.”

While The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is always quite dramatic, the recently aired Season 6 showed Lisa Vanderpump in a much different light as two of her co-stars, Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson, accused her of manipulating Rinna into turning a conversation about Munchausen Syndrome into their Season 6 story line.
Throughout the season, Lisa Vanderpump and her co-stars were caught in the midst of drama after Rinna mentioned that people were discussing the idea of Munchausen Syndrome in regard to Yolanda Foster, who was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2012 and has been suffering ever since.
While no one came right out and said that Foster was lying about her illness, the conversation about Munchausen Syndrome turned into the basis of the season due to the ladies’ contradicting stories regarding who started the conversation among the cast — and where it originated. Then, during the reunion, Rinna shockingly accused Lisa Vanderpump of being behind the entire thing, which she denied.

Currently, Lisa Vanderpump is on the outs with Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson, but she remains close to Kyle Richards and her relationship with Kim appears to be on good terms, as well. As for Yolanda Foster, Lisa Vanderpump doesn’t seem to be in good standing with her former friend, the ex-wife of Mohamed Hadid, and that’s because Foster claims she spoke negatively about her children Bella and Anwar Hadid’s Lyme disease.
