The drama and cattiness of the show have been weighing heavily on Vanderpump’s mind, and in her recent Bravo blog post, she made her feelings about her co-stars very clear.
“So as the sun sets on the Hills of Beverly, the shade is cast in my direction,” Vanderpump began. “It has been so hurtful, so I decided not to watch as I have no interest having lived through it once. But I encourage you to watch closely as some delusional characters play out this exhausting scenario.”
Vanderpump then went on to mention her feud with Lisa Rinna, and her comments reveal how much it has hurt her: She commented on a number of scenarios, including the time Rinna accused her of “manipulating” her into shopping in Amsterdam (um, what?) and the falling out from the Munchausen syndrome theory — Vanderpump questioned why Rinna “eagerly read this from a phone, of your own volition,” but then later turned around and blamed her for this.
But perhaps the most telling part of Vanderpump’s post is when she states, “So I bid you farewell as the curtain drops on the final act. Some may take a bow as they have executed their plan and can live with their choices, their choice to attempt to discredit and annihilate a friend, who I am resolute in the fact, has been extraordinarily supportive in some dark times, that we have witnessed….”
It’s unclear whether Vanderpump’s emotional reaction is a her farewell letter to the show as a whole, or it’s simply signifying the end of her friendship with Rinna, but would it really be so surprising if Vanderpump did choose to leave the show?
She’s a successful businesswoman with a lot on her plate right now, and aside from running Sur, she’s also in the middle of filming Vanderpump Rules — a show with more drama than even The Real Housewives franchise could hope to achieve. Plus, all the feuds must really be taking their toll on her emotionally.
