While Lisa recently slammed her co-stars for ganging up on her during season nine and leaving her “emotionally depleted,” a new report claims the RHOBH cast members are concerned for their jobs amid fears that Bravo could try to convince Lisa to return.
“The ladies still believe Lisa isn’t walking away for good quite yet and they know her relationships with the network are strong, so they know they may try to keep Lisa and bring in an ally for her, so of course they’re all scared to lose their jobs,” a source close to production told Hollywood Life on June 15.
“It’s still too soon to tell who will stay and who will go for next season,” the insider added.
In other Lisa Vanderpump news, the restaurant owner recently opened up to The Express about her experience with the cast during season nine. She suggested she hadn’t completely ruled out the idea of a future return.
“I was tearful most days filming Housewives last season. The whole cast ganged up on me, and I was just weary,” Lisa said, according to a Us Weekly report. “I was emotionally depleted.”
“I wanted to take the year off, and didn’t want to be in the emotionally combative situation that Housewives often entails,” Lisa explained. “I didn’t have time for the petty bull sh*t, really. People are screaming at you. They were arguing about who said what about a dog! I’ve had enough. It just became too much.”
“That’s just part of the sadness. I have had depressing moments,” she continued. “I started on antidepressants after my brother passed, and grief counseling. After such a depressing year, I worry about the toll it might take. That’s one of the reasons I wanted to step away from Housewives.”
Although Lisa has appeared to be firm in her decision to walk away from the show since making her announcement, she didn’t seem so sure she’d never be back when asked about Andy Cohen saying the door would “always be open” for her to return.
“Who knows?” she teased.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season nine airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
