Lisa Vanderpump isn’t buying Brandi Glanville’s claims she wasn’t fired from “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” The 42-year-old recently spoke out about her departure from the show on an episode of her podcast, saying she had “decided not to return to the show.”
Lisa was spotted leaving restaurant Villa Blanca with fellow “RHOBH” star Kyle Richards Wednesday when she was approached by TMZ. She told the site’s cameraman she wished Brandi the best, but said it was “a crock of poo” that she had come to the decision on her own. Kyle backed those claims saying, “truth cannon my a--” as she g0t in the passenger seat of Lisa’s car. The 54-year-old assured TMZ neither she nor the rest of the women had anything to do with her leaving before driving off.
Brandi confirmed she would not be appearing in Season 6 of the “Real Housewives” series Wednesday. She said Bravo had become her “family” in the four years since she joined the show’s cast and gave fans a glimpse into her future. Brandi will continue doing her podcast while she works on new ventures, including a wine business and a clothing line. She also teased a new project which she said “will show everyone a more well-rounded side” of herself.
Kim Richards has also reportedly been removed from the “RHOBH” cast. Bravo and it’s parent company, NBC Universal, reportedly felt she was too much of a liability following her April 16 arrest. She was given the option to seek treatment or leave the show. On April 26 Kim entered rehab, unfortunately her stay was short lived.
Although filming for the series is officially underway it remains unclear who will fill the empty slots in the Beverly Hills “Housewives” cast. Bravo has not yet announced when the series will return to TV.
