Dorit Kemsley Reveals if She Regrets Calling Lisa Vanderpump a 'Coward' and Addresses Lisa's Potential Return to the RHOBH, Plus Was Lisa's Scene Cut from Finale Episode?

Dorit Kemsley slammed her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star, Lisa Vanderpump, as a “coward” during a pre-reunion interview last month after learning she would not be present for the taping.  Is she sticking by the dig?

During an interview on the KTLA 5 Morning News on Monday, the mother of two looked back on her “coward” comment and spoke of her drama with Camille Grammer before addressing Lisa’s exit from the show during a separate interview.

“Emotions are always running high [at the reunion taping] and I think just before then, you get the camera in your face and I was kind of bummed that [Lisa] wasn’t there,” Dorit explained. “That was harsh and I do regret saying that because I do feel like ‘coward’ is very harsh. But, she didn’t come. She didn’t turn up and it was unfortunate because we were all hoping to have at least some resolution with her.”

After Dorit’s comment was made, Lisa fired back at her former co-star by agreeing with a fan who suggested Dorit’s statement was “vile” and “disgusting.”

During another interview, Dorit opened up about Lisa’s decision to quit the show and revealed if she truly believes season nine will be her last.

“I was surprised and sad… it’s sad, it’s the end of an era, really,” Dorit told Extra TV.

As for a potential return, Dorit added, “She likes to be unpredictable, so you never know.”

Just before the release of the dramatic trailer, Lisa, who quit her role on the show last month after nine seasons, took to Twitter. There, she told fans she had been cut, at least partially, from the series’ season nine finale episode.

“Hopefully Bravo actually air [Lisa’s restaurant opening]. I mean, they filmed quite a few scenes this season that didn’t make it. Shady. Shady. Shady. #RHOBH #TeamLVP,” one person said.

“No apparently it wasn’t important enough to make the cut,” Lisa replied.

In a second tweet, Lisa said that she may be seen on the finale episode briefly.

“I think there is a bit of me being crowned and carried lol,” she shared.

However, Bravo host Andy Cohen took to Twitter moments ago to clarify that Lisa will appear on tonight’s RHOBH finale episode, saying, “Yes she is,” in response to a fan who questioned if Lisa would be featured.
