Lisa Vanderpump to quit Real Housewives?
Lisa Vanderpump is set to quit 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'.
The 55-year-old reality star is the only cast member not to have yet signed up for a seventh season of the popular Bravo show and has reportedly complained to producers that she was unhappy with the "negative vibes" last series, after her co-stars ganged up on her.
According to TMZ, Lisa met with show bosses at her restaurant Pump last week and also admitted she is concerned she hasn't got the time to do the show, as she is busy with her stand-alone programme, 'Vanderpump Rules', running her three eateries and campaigning to end the dog meat market in China.
The rumour comes weeks after fellow Housewife Yolanda Hadid quit the show, reportedly after producers told her she would be demoted to a friend of the programme, rather than a main star, in the upcoming season.
Sources claimed that Yolanda told bosses she would only stay if she could remain a main housewife, which they declined.
However, the insider stressed there is no ill feeling between Yolanda, network Bravo or the show's production team.
When she announced her departure from the show on Instagram, Yolanda - whose diagnosis with Lyme disease, much to the scepticism of her castmates, was documented in the last season of the programme - admitted she had hoped to have a better ending to her time on the fly-on-the-wall series.
She wrote: " I would have loved a more graceful exit then "Season 6" but sometimes we don't get to control the ending of the chapters in our life.............. 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 (sic)"
Yolanda - who is the mother of models Gigi and Bella Hadid, and their brother Anwar - went on to thank her fans for their "unwavering" support and admitted she is feeling excited about what the future holds.
She added: "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 #RHOBH #TimeToSayGoodbye with#Gratitude @evolutionusa @bravoandy @bravotv #WWHL (sic)"
