“The next time viewers see her will be at the end of the season when we filmed her opening her latest restaurant at Caesars Palace,” a source close to production told the Daily Mail on May 21.”Lisa still hasn’t committed to either the reunion or coming back next season, so we don’t know where things stand with her. We obviously want her at the reunion and we want her back next season.”
Lisa reportedly remains “hurt” as the stress of Puppy Gate has not left her “in a good place mentally.”
While Lisa took a lie detector test during Tuesday night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, her co-stars still aren’t convinced she wasn’t behind a negative story about Dorit Kemsley shared by Radar Online last year and when it comes to the season, some of the producers feel Dorit’s behavior has been overlooked.
“Dorit caused this entire mess by abandoning two dogs, yet the cast has turned on Lisa,” the insider stated.
“The fan reaction hasn’t been what the other women wanted, they thought they could all come together as one and push Lisa out, but our viewers are smart and have seen through this and taken Lisa’s side,” the production source continued. “We’ve never seen such a strong fan reaction. Many of them are calling for Dorit, Teddi and Lisa Rinna to be fired. Kyle is also being targeted online for her complete disloyalty as a friend.”
As for who could actually be fired, that has yet to be decided. That said, the production insider seemingly implied that producers are open to firing one or more of the RHOBH cast members.
“Regardless we’re going to have to look at the entire cast for next season, maybe we’ll do a Dorit and abandon a few of them,” the source explained.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season nine airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
