AceShowbiz - Lately, rumors are running rampage that Lisa Vanderpump is departing from Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills". The reality TV star seemingly can't take it anymore that she finally addresses the rumors surrounding herself.
"I haven't said anything for two months. Now, everybody's been talking about this. I've just been going about my business and doing my things," the British restaurateur said to Entertainment Tonight at the 3rd Annual Vanderpump Dog Foundation Gala in Los Angeles on Thursday, November 15. "I am in the show."
"I have not quit," she assured. She went on saying that if she did quit, she would be the one announcing the news. "If I did quit, it wouldn't just be a leaked story. I would be upfront, and I have a lot of loyalty to the production company and the network."
Lisa, however, admitted that "it has been a difficult season." She shared, "It's been a difficult year for me personally, and the season was very challenging. So I'm in a lot of it, but there are some parts I skip, and I think people have seen that."
Yesterday, the reality TV star took to Twitter to share similar messages. "If you hear it from me...It has to be true. Until then, not so much," she tweeted.

Rumors of her not returning for another season after season 9 has been emerging after it was revealed that Lisa missed out on group events and had been filming the upcoming season 9 separately from the other Housewives.
"Friends are concerned Lisa has been taking the fact that the other ladies won't film with her harder than they even thought, as they feel she is not in the best place right now," a source said to HollywoodLife.com.
While co-star Lisa Rinna deemed her skipping out group filming "for over 6 weeks" unprofessional, the source claims that it was because Lisa "isn't necessarily being invited" and that she "feels excluded." The source continued, "She feels…nobody is calling her to say, 'Hey, come here.' "
