Lisa Vanderpump Confirms 'RHOBH' Exit After 'a Very Negative Year'

The restaurant owner says she has no intention to return for the upcoming season 10 of the Bravo reality series after 'a horrible time' with her cast mates.

AceShowbiz - Lisa Vanderpump has clearly made up her mind about her future on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills". After saying that she wouldn't attend the season 9 reunion taping, the 58-year-old reality TV star has now confirmed that she wouldn't return for the show's upcoming season 10.

"It's a poignant moment for me, having been through the demise of 'Housewives.' Just to be here tonight is a feel-good factor," she told "Extra" at the 7th annual "Real to Reel: Portrayals and Perceptions of LGBTs in Hollywood" event, where she was honored with the Legacy Award, on Thursday night, June 6.

Explaining her decision to leave the show after nine seasons, Lisa shared, "The last year was a very negative year for me. I feel like we're moving forward. They have had their resolution. I just had a horrible time with the show and the women. It was a very sad time in my life and it wasn't made any better. I just decided to walk away."

Lisa also addressed report that she would move "Vanderpump Rules" to another network. "The show was born on Bravo... That's going to stay on Bravo," she firmly said, setting the record straight.

Lisa previously hinted that she had no intention to return for season 10 of "RHOBH" during an interview with DailyMailTV. "The objective of the reunion is to reunite, right? And I have no inclination to reunite with the women who've been harassing me for 10 months now," the restaurant owner said about whether she would show up for the season 9 reunion taping. "So in all probability, no."

Pressed about her future on the show, she replied, "I think they've made it pretty impossible for me to go back frankly. So... no."

Bravo refused to confirm Lisa's departure, saying in a statement released following Lisa's declaration of quitting the hit franchise earlier this week, "There is so much great drama and fun still to come this season, including the ladies' trip to France, so before we focus on next season, let's see where this one takes us."

Lisa has been involved in a Puppygate drama with her "RHOBH" co-stars in season 9. She was accused of leaking information about a dog that Dorit Kemsley adopted from Vanderpump Dogs. Dorit later gave away the dog to a new family, who dropped the pooch at the pound. Lisa denied that she leaked the story.
