Nine years after the series was launched as a spinoff of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills that was based out of Lisa Vanderpump‘s West Hollywood restaurant, Charli, who joined the series during its eighth season in a recurring role, told a fan on Twitter that she is the only member of the show who actually works at the venue.
“Are you the only staff member who truly works there then?” a fan asked on January 11.
“I only work once or twice a week because I work in nightlife on weekends. But yes!” Charli confirmed (although Raquel Leviss recently told Scheana Shay on her podcast that she would be returning to work at SUR after the holidays).
Because she was continuing to work at SUR throughout production on Pump Rules season nine, she was often forced to skip out on filmed events due to outbreaks of COVID-19.
“I wasn’t in the last episodes because of Covid outbreaks & unfortunately it kept happening to me because I was actually at SUR working,” Charli explained, adding that not being included in the episodes “really sucked.”
In a third tweet, Charli joked that when it comes to her job as a waitress at SUR, she finds the title humbling, especially when the gig means she misses the new episodes of the show.
“Wanna know what keeps me humble? Clocking into SUR the night the show is [on] lmao,” Charli wrote.
Also on Twitter this week, after a critic was seen responding to a Pump Rules fan page, who suggested it was Charli’s responsibility to be the “life of the party” on the show, by suggesting she was “immature and boring,” Charli fought back.
“As the young friend in the group, I feel that. The responsibility is YOURS!” the fan page had written.
But one follower didn’t agree and said they felt Charli was “immature and BORING!”
“Cannot say one sentence without swearing!” they complained.
“That’s f-cking right Brit,” Charli replied.
Vanderpump Rules season nine airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
