Lisa Vanderpump and her co-stars recently began filming The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 7 and on Wednesday, the longtime reality star and restaurant owner took to Twitter, where she shared what appeared to be a filming-related tweet.
“It’s that time of year again wish me luck,” Lisa Vanderpump wrote to her fans and followers on Twitter on July 20.
Days prior, Lisa Vanderpump confirmed the return of Eileen Davidson, whose role on the show was reportedly in jeopardy up until last week.
Lisa Vanderpump was unsure of her of her return to the Bravo reality series just weeks ago but earlier this month, she confirmed on Twitter that she had once again signed on to appear on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. A short time later, a report claimed Vanderpump only agreed to return if the network would allow her to spotlight several issues close to her heart, including animal rights and the support of the LGBT community.

“[Lisa Vanderpump] made some demands, but none had to do with money,” TMZ revealed to readers. “She wants [The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills] to showcase her work in the LGBT community. She also wants the show to put a spotlight on the work she does to fight AIDS. And finally she wants publicity for her fight to put a stop to the dog meat market in China.”
Prior to the report, rumors swirled claiming Lisa Vanderpump was simply over the drama and verbal attacks by her co-stars, but according to TMZ, she isn’t bothered by the petty feuds with her co-stars and knows the spats are simply part of being a reality star.
Lisa Vanderpump has been with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills since the series began in 2010, and while many wives, including Adrienne Maloof, Taylor Armstrong and Camille Grammer, have come and gone, she has remained at the forefront of the series and, along with Kyle Richards, is one of two remaining full-time original cast members.

As Lisa Vanderpump and her co-stars film Season 7, photos from production continue to surface online. In addition to the photo above, which appears to feature Vanderpump at her Beverly Hills restaurant, Villa Blanca, several photos were posted to Richards’ SnapChat account days ago, which included images of Lisa Rinna, Erika Girardi, Vanderpump and new housewife Dorit Kemsley.
While many housewives from Season 6 are returning to the show, a couple of wives will not be seen. As has been revealed in recent weeks, Kathryn Edwards and Yolanda Foster will not be featured during Season 7.
“I would have loved a more graceful exit [than] ‘Season 6’ but sometimes we don’t get to control the ending of the chapters in our life,” Foster wrote on Instagram in June. “I am leaving what’s over without denying its past importance in my life. I believe that every exit is an new entry and with that in mind I say goodbye to my @Bravotv Family as I continue to focus on a my recovery, my children and bring back the privacy within our Home……….. Thank you to all the fans for your love and unwavering support these past 4 years. I am grateful for the housewife experience and all it has taught me. I’am excited about this CHOICE and look forward to the next chapter of my life.”
Lisa Vanderpump and the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are expected to return to Bravo sometime later this year.
