On Part 1 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion, Andy Cohen publicly fired Adrienne Maloof for not attending the Season 3 Reunion, but Adrienne insists it was her decision to not return to the show, and as we previously reported Maloof tried to quit the show in the middle of shooting Season 3. RHOBH Star Lisa Vanderpump is coming forward saying she doesn’t think Adrienne is being honest about her departure from the show, reveals what changed in her friendship with Kyle Richards, and what makes Brandi Glanville such a good friend.
“I think you have to understand that when you sign up for something, it’s a job, you know?” Vanderpump told Us Weekly after competing on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars March 25. “The reunion is where you go and everything comes to fruition and you hash it out. And viewers want that the same way they want us to blog. . . So yeah, she got the hoof! She says she walked away, but she didn’t. She got the big Maloof hoof! And you can quote me on that!”
Lisa also commented on her strained friendship with Kyle Richards. “I’ve been through the reunion last year and I was ganged up on and I had a huge amount of support from the audience,” Vanderpump told US. “And I really felt this time I wasn’t going to take it lying down. I was going to stand up and say, ‘Hey, this is what’s going on,’ and I felt the way the whole thing played out this season — you saw it — the loyalties were divided. And I’m not like that. You’ve got to pick one side of the fence. You sit on the fence too long, you get splinters in your ass!”
Vanderpump states that Kyle’s refusal to support her publicly “changed” the nature of their relationship, and she would never blame Bravo’s editing. “I think this production company has so much integrity that they do tell the true story,” Vanderpump explained. “So you know, that’s what happened.”
While a reconciliation with Kyle would take some time, Lisa’s friendship with Brandi Glanville is better than ever. “She was coming on as kind of my nemesis!” Vanderpump told US of Brandi. “But look at her! Straight forward, straight shooter, and I like that. I don’t want to be blindsided. And I think the audience knows me well enough to go, ‘Okay, she’s a good girlfriend.’ She’s a great girl.”
