During the first three seasons of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Lisa Vanderpump mostly managed to escape the drama, steering clear of most of the women’s gang-ups. Things changed for the 53-year-old during Season 4, though, culminating with a tearful confrontation in Puerto Rico that has carried over into the show’s three-part reunion.
This left Lisa contemplating whether or not she even wants to return for a fifth season. “I left Puerto Rico in the middle of the night in tears,” she says. “I’ve done 120 episodes, and I am a strong woman; but when you have four against one, it is too much.”
Cast member Brandi Glanville’s future on the show is also up in the air…although not by choice. An online petition is demanding that Bravo fire the 41-year-old for making “jokes about racial stereotypes and child molestation” that are “offensive and repulsive beyond the point of entertainment.”
