Lisa Vanderpump Wants The Lawsuits Against Dorit Kemsley And Kyle Richards And Erika Girardi's Husbands To Be Storylines On RHOBH

Lisa Vanderpump would love to see the lawsuits her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-stars are currently facing made into storylines for the show.

On Thursday, April 25, Lisa was asked about the financial issues currently plaguing her co-stars, including Dorit Kemsley, Kyle Richards‘ husband, Mauricio Umansky, and Erika Jayne‘s husband, Thomas Girardi, by a fan who pointed out that none of them were featured on the show.

“You could have aired Erika’s financial issues, Bravo, instead of allowing the ridiculous attack on LVP’s reputation,” the fan wrote. “NOTHING was filmed/said about this…or Kyle/Mo being sued…or Dorit/PK being sued. No, let’s hurt LVP for the 4th year!!!”

“Exactly,” Lisa replied. 

In August of last year, Dorit was seen being confronted by a woman who accused her of owing hundreds of thousands of dollars to a man named Ryan Horne, who she was previously working with on her swimwear line, Beverly Beach by Dorit. However, despite the fact that the encounter took place during a filmed vacation in The Bahamas, it was not featured on the show. 

Ryan filed a lawsuit against Dorit in 2018 and accused her of owing him $205,000. A while later, in a countersuit, Dorit said Ryan was “merely a vendor” for her brand.

As for the husbands of the  RHOBH, Thomas is facing a $15 million lawsuit for allegedly refusing to pay back loans to the Law Finance Group and Dorit’s husband, Paul “PK” Kemsley, is facing a number of cases against him, one of which involves owing money to a casino in Las Vegas.

Mauricio is also facing legal troubles after he and his real estate company, The Agency, were sued to the tune of $32 million over the sale of a home in Malibu, California.

In the lawsuit against Mauricio, Teodoro Mangue, the owner of Sweetwater Malibu LLC, accused the realtor of manipulating him into selling the home for $32.5 million before buying the home with a partner and flipping the home for $69.9 million, resulting in a profit of $37.4 million. The company also claimed Mauricio received higher offers from other potential buyers that he allegedly failed to inform him about.

In Mauricio’s latest court documents, which were shared by The Blast, he demanded the lawsuit against him be dismissed and denied all claims of fraud. He’s also calling out Teodoro’s criminal activity, explaining that the home was taken by the U.S. government as a result of his crimes.

“By suing Defendants and making unfounded and baseless allegations, Plaintiff repeats a strategy Obiang has used before unlawfully enriching himself by using shell companies to take money from innocent parties,” Mauricio wrote in his response.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season nine airs on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
