Lisa Vanderpump isn’t going down without a fight.
After Real Housewives of Beverly Hills producer Chris Cullen revealed she was the one who leaked a negative story about Dorit Kemsley abandoning her adopted dog from Vanderpump Dogs, which launched the season nine scandal now known as “Puppygate,” Vanderpump took to her Twitter page to fire back at Chris with a series of retweets and posts of her own.
“If the former editor of Radar Online at the time (Alexis Tereszcuk) confirmed LVP didn’t leak the story, what more proof do people want?” one of Vanderpump’s retweeted messages asked. “She didn’t have to deny or confirm. She didn’t have to say anything at all. The fact she tweeted speaks volumes.”
“More bull [sh-t] coming from the RHOBH franchise, like today a producer who is writing a book said LVP was the [one] who leaked ‘puppy gate’ to [Radar Online] even though Radar has always said it wasn’t LVP, who would you believe? Not the [one] pushing a book that’s for sure,” another retweeted message stated.
Another message from a fan asked Radar Online’s former editor to reconfirm that Vanderpump hadn’t leaked the story about Dorit.
“Could you please reconfirm [Lisa Vanderpump] did not leak the story. It’s now come back up again and LVP is still getting blamed. Or at least tell us who so they can lay off LVP. Initial could work ha,” the person said.
“Yes pleeease do….tell us …who did it! Don’t hold back,” Vanderpump replied.

As the tweets continued, Vanderpump expressed amusement after a man suggested she was being used to generate ratings for the currently airing 11th season of RHOBH.
“[RHOBH] still need [Lisa Vanderpump] to stay relevant. Otherwise nobody would watch it [to be honest]. That’s why they keep inventing stories about queen LVP,” he suggested.
“Lol,” Vanderpump responded.
Vanderpump then retweeted another message from someone who revealed that the producer mentioned is close with Vanderpump’s former onscreen nemeses, Kyle Richards and Lisa Rinna, and claimed he was also the one who encouraged Rinna to target Denise Richards on season 10.
“Look at the source: Chris Cullen. The same Chris Cullen who is BFF’s with Rinna [and] Kyle,” the re-tweet noted. “The same producer that encouraged Rinna to go after Denise [and] whom Denise was talking to during the infamous scene. Denise was set up, so perhaps Lisa was, too?” the person wrote.
Also on social media, Rinna shared a couple of posts to her Instagram Story in which she confirmed she played a role in Vanderpump’s alleged Munchausen scheme against Yolanda Hadid.
“And it also comes out in the book that [Lisa Vanderpump] masterminded the whole [Yolanda Hadid] situation and how I took the bait. She caused it all. I will be forever sorry for this moment,” Rinna wrote in her first of two posts.
Years ago, the possibility of Yolanda exaggerating her Lyme disease symptoms was brought up on the show — as was the idea that she could be lying about her illness altogether. Looking back, Rinna said she is ashamed by her behavior.
“Yolanda did not deserve that and I feel great shame to this day about it,” she admitted.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 11 reunion is currently airing Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
