A few years ago, Lisa Vanderpump was up there on the Bravo totem.
In fact, in terms of importance to the network, she might have been second only to Andy Cohen.
But the mighty have fallen in recent years, and these days you can watch Bravo for a week straight and not catch a glimpse of everyone’s favorite restaurateur.
Lisa quit The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in scandalous circumstances in 2019.
And while she still appears in new episodes of Vanderpump Rules (which is set to return on February 8), most viewers would agree that this show is a shell of itself.
Despite no longer being Bravo’s undisputed queen, Lisa is still a hugely popular presence with a sizable fanbase.
So there was a lot of celebration this weekend when Sutton Stracke apparently hinted that Lisa would be returning to RHOBH!
“#aboutlastnight in Paris,” Sutton captioned the photo above, adding, “It went well! »
Now, on its own, the post is nothing remarkable.
But coming, as he does, amid rumors that Lisa will return to the show after the departure of Lisa Rinna – well, it’s not hard to see why fans think Sutton just spilled the tea!
Given that Sutton was rumored to be filming in Paris and Lisa was with her, it’s safe to assume that Vanderpump will at least return as a “Friend of the Housewives.”
And that’s a bit surprising, considering that when she left the show, she was on very bad terms not only with Lisa Rinna, but also with Kyle Richards.
Kyle and Lisa were best friends, but Kyle accused Lisa of rushing and leaving the bill for him after a meal at an expensive restaurant.
Lisa later clarified that the bill was not for Kyle, but for the producer of Lisa’s E! series Overserved with Lisa Vanderpumpwith whom the friends had dined.
“I said, ‘First of all, it had nothing to do with her. It had to do with him, who I’ve known for 10 or 12 years,'” she told E! News.
“And I said, ‘Two, I think he paid for it. They said, ‘No, he didn’t.’
Well, I hope these two get a chance to settle their differences on the next season of RHOBH.
If the dinner and dash incident is mentioned, don’t be surprised if someone ends up with a drink thrown in their face!
