While Lisa failed to appear at the taping after announcing she would not be returning to the show for season 10 earlier this month, the drama between her and her former co-stars remained at the forefront of the series.
“The ladies of RHOBH were disappointed and surprised that Lisa Vanderpump didn’t show,” a source told Hollywood Life on June 11. “They all really thought she would show and they all wanted the chance to talk to her calmly.”
In the weeks leading up to the taping of the reunion, Lisa appeared to be back and forth when it came to her plans for the event. In the end, she decided to avoid a confrontation with her co-stars.
Meanwhile, as Lisa distanced herself from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast, the remaining women became further united as the ninth season of the show wrapped production at the June fifth taping.
“The drama from the reunion was difficult as all of the ladies are in a really good place,” the source explained. “The ladies were there from 6am until almost 11pm as they were trying to capture as much footage as possible, but it was quite hard without Lisa there as they were forced to keep talking about someone who’s not there and they weren’t going to just stir up drama for cameras.”
“They’re very much united right now,” the insider added. “Lisa not attending was addressed at the top and all of the ladies were open and said how they felt. They all got to share their side of the story.”
According to a report last week, there is still a chance that Lisa will end up filming a one-on-one segment for the reunion.
