During an episode of her podcast last month, Lisa revealed what it would take for her to be brought back to the show before looking back at the series’ start, discussing her current thoughts on Camille Grammer, and sharing the “hardest part” of appearing on reality television.
“I would go back if [Lance Bass] was [cast]. That would be hilarious,” Lisa told celebrity guest Michael Turchin, Lance’s husband, on All Things Vanderpump. “They should. It’s progressive, right? It’s all-inclusive. Why not?”
While many fans have been begging for Lisa to return to the RHOBH since she quit the show in June 2019, she told Michael that the series has gotten too “aggressive.”
“It seems a little aggressive to me. It’s not what I signed up for. Remember the first season? There were authentic friendships, a real bond, discussions and things,” Lisa recalled.
As for which of her former castmates she’s spoken to, Lisa named Camille.
“Camille I’ve spoken to. I keep in touch with her even though she did say some horrible sh*t about me like I’ve got bad gums. She says, ‘I’m sorry. I made it up.’ I’m like, ‘Well, it’s out there.’”
According to Lisa, recent seasons of RHOBH have followed the same format of pinpointing one castmate’s issue and rehashing it over and over.
“With me it was Puppy Gate and [season 10], it was P*ssy Gate,” she explained.
Looking back at the time she spent on reality television, Lisa said her hardest times were having to relive the states she was in after the loss of her brother in 2018 and the loss of her mom in 2019.
“I watched myself trying to deal with my brother’s [suicide], to see myself where I was, even now, [is hard]. And when I told Jax and Brittany about their wedding, my mother had just died today. To look back at that is really, really difficult,” she admitted.
Also during the podcast, Lisa said that while producers have been known to put some things where they don’t belong, she appreciates the way in which they do their best to parlay the truth to their audiences.
“I’ve noticed sometimes the old eye roll or something. I might do that and they may stick it in somewhere else. But for the most part, Evolution are brilliant production company and they try to tell the whole story,” she shared.
“And I know from experience, the true story is much easier to tell because if you’re trying to create a narrative, what are you going to do when the person isn’t reacting the way you’re telling the story? Fact is much more interesting than fiction,” Lisa added.
