Lisa Vanderpump is reacting to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ executive producer Chris Cullen‘s claims that she was the one who leaked a negative story about Dorit Kemsley and the dog she adopted from Vanderpump Dogs to Radar Online amid season nine.

After Chris made the allegations against Lisa in Dave Quinn‘s Real Housewives tell-all, Not All Diamonds and Rosé, the RHOBH alum and Vanderpump Rules star revealed who she believes was behind the leak before offering an update on her broken leg and addressing Peter Madrigal‘s date with Raquel Leviss.

“I think it was production that did it,” Lisa, 61, told Page Six on April 14. “I feel like the producers gave the story … I’m not happy that they tried to blame me.”

While there have been rumors on and off about Lisa’s potential return to the show since she left in June 2019, Lisa told the outlet she “would never go back.”

“That’s a hot mess that I could do without… I’m happy I left. I tried to leave three or four times,” she explained of RHOBH, which she described as a “nightmare.”

As she stepped out in heels for the first time on Thursday since a horse riding accident in January that left her with a broken leg “in four places” and “a badly bruised back,” Lisa joked about her urgency to get back to her standard look.

“I’ve just started to walk again,” she shared. “My doctor said, ‘I’m used to getting my patients out on the field, playing basketball, playing baseball or football. But for you, it’s the heels! That’s the most important thing!’”

Also during the interview, Lisa confirmed she approved of Peter and Raquel’s recent date.

“I did! Peter’s a great guy. Everybody needs a Peter in their lives,” she noted as Peter, who was at SUR on the night of the interview, noted that their outing “went really well.”

In other Lisa Vanderpump news, the RHOBH alum and her West Hollywood animal rescue center, Vanderpump Dogs, have reached a private agreement with a woman named Kimberly Dillon, who filed a lawsuit against her, claiming she was sold a worm-infested dachshund puppy in July 2019.

According to OK! Magazine, the fraud and negligence lawsuit and its claims will be dismissed within 45 days.

In Kimberly’s lawsuit, it was alleged she had been told that the puppy had all of its required shots and treatments, and claimed that she had been presented with a false immunization record and a false certificate suggesting the animal had been dewormed. But upon her arrival back home, Kimberly said the dog began exhibiting odd behavior and “expelling large live worms while defecating.”

Following the ordeal, Kimberly brought the dachshund to a vet, where the dog was said to be suffering from a serious worm infection and diagnosed with intestinal parasites.

In their response to the lawsuit, Lisa and Vanderpump Dogs accused Kimberly of neglecting to “exercise reasonable care and diligence to avoid loss and to minimize damages.”

“[Dillon’s] unlawful, immoral, careless, negligent and other wrongful conduct, Plaintiff should be barred from recovering against this answering Defendant,” their motion filed against the woman explained.
