Andy Cohen working to keep Lisa Vanderpump on RHOBH
Lisa Vanderpump sounds likes she's done with the show that made her famous. Andy Cohen is desperate for her to stay on RHOBH.
According to TMZ, Cohen is working overtime to make sure his star stays on the Bravo TV reality show. The TV personality brought mutual friend Lance Bass to her new West Hollywood restaurant, PUMP, to tag-team her into staying.
The gossip site reported that they pretended the outing was just a casual dinner date. Vanderpump is a big reason viewers tune in to the franchise because she is well-loved. She has not signed a new contract with the show yet.
TMZ sources are claiming that the reality star felt bullied by her cast mates last season, so she is done with the show. Cohen reportedly spent much of the dinner coaxing her to stay with the series. He brought along the former *NSYNC band member to help him out since they are all good friends.
While no other RHOBH personality has signed on for Season 5 either, it's clear that Cohen wants to lock in his star before getting the others on board. The 53-year-old successful restaurateur already has her own show, Vanderpump Rules, which she wants to continue to focus on.
Did Cohen win this round? Fans will have to wait until next season to find out.
