Don't worry, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans: Lisa Vanderpump isn't going anywhere! Despite reports to the contrary, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star tells E! News exclusively that she has no intention of leaving the hit Bravo reality series at the end of its current fourth season.
"There is nothing to quit right now. There are all these rumors but there is nothing to quit. We are not in production—they don't even start production until next year," explains the restaurateur, who also stars in the network's Vanderpump Rules. "If I quit, you will hear the words right out of my mouth or I have been fired. This story is just about as true as any other story these websites write."
Radar Online wrongly claimed that Vanderpump had spoken to producers about quitting the franchise after getting into a series of fights with costars Brandi Glanville and Kyle Richards. Though a source tells E! News that dynamics have indeed shifted between the cast members, the 53-year-old is staying put.
Tensions reached an all-time high at the end of summer when the women traveled to Puerto Rico together. While there, the source says Vanderpump's former BFFs—plus Yolanda Foster and Kim Richards—decided to confront her about "what they perceived to be her manipulative behavior."
"They called her out on it and all the conflict that had been building up finally came to a head," the source reveals. "It was very emotional and very unpleasant."
Vanderpump, who has starred on the show since it premiered in October 2010, has been keeping her distance since then. "Lisa's kind of been on her own," the source explains, "so it makes sense to assume that, right now, she's not very happy."
Unhappy or not, we're not surprised to see her sticking it out.
