Dorit Kemsley Calls Lisa Vanderpump a "Coward" for Skipping Reunion and Says She Lacked "Grace" as Kyle Questions Lisa's Motive

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Dorit Kemsley is slamming Lisa Vanderpump as a “coward” over her absence at the June 5 taping of the season nine reunion.

During a series of interviews taken backstage at the reunion, Dorit and some of her other RHOBH castmates weighed in on Lisa’s decision to skip out on the filming a day after quitting the show. Dorit, however, had the harshest words for her former friend as she also blasted the restaurant maven for lacking “grace.”

“I thought Lisa, at least in this final act, would leave with her shoulders up and her head held up high and have a little bit of grace and her dignity intact and she didn’t,” Dorit explained in a clip shared by Bravo on July 3.

She continued, “As far as I’m concerned, she’s bowed out like a coward. And I think that’s unfortunate… I kind of thought at least she would have done that for the people that do look at her as this regal, super-human but she’s not.”

As seen on this season of the RHOBH, Dorit’s decision to give a dog she adopted from Vanderpump Dogs to a friend, rather than return it to Lisa’s shelter, set off the Puppy Gate drama after that dog ended up at a shelter. After a story about the doggy drama was reported by the media during filming, Dorit and her castmates accused Lisa of leaking the story. Lisa denied putting out the story and later passed a lie detector test.

Kyle Richards, who remains on the outs with Lisa, also commented on her absence at the reunion.

“My first thought when I heard Lisa wasn’t coming was that she’s going to come,” Kyle admitted. “I thought, ‘She’s coming. She’s coming.'”

Kyle added she suspected Lisa put out the story about quitting ahead of the reunion so she wouldn’t get criticized for not showing up like Adrienne Maloof got slammed for, after her decision to skip the RHOBH season three reunion.

“I mean there were stories yesterday saying she’s not coming and that she quit. I think that was maybe in case she doesn’t show up, she didn’t want what happened to Adrienne Maloof [to happen to her],” suspected Kyle.

As for Lisa, she recently tweeted that she had no desire at all to reunite with her castmates after this volatile season.

“In season 4 & 6 it was whole cast against me,and I sat there 10 hrs. This year again it was 5 against 1 . I was done, it was just too vicious this time, I wasn’t in the same place emotionally. #BULLIES,” Lisa tweeted on June 27. “There was no chance of reuniting.”


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