‘RHOBH’ Production Strikes Back At Lisa Vanderpump’s Claim They Made Her A Target

Lisa Vanderpump____RHOBH

Lisa Vanderpump has been defending herself on social media, after being shaded by her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star, Yolanda Foster. Yolanda alluded to Lisa’s lack of support, when she missed a Lyme charity gala, which was later highlighted on the show.  Bravo dragged viewers through the spectacle, while Lisa jetted to the U.K. to renew her passport, so she could travel with the cast, to Dubai. Lisa has received flack on social media, with some accusing her of deliberately dodging the event.

READ: ‘RHOBH’ Lisa Vanderpump Exposes Bravo For Making Her A Target By Missing Yolanda’s NYC Lyme Disease Gala

Lisa called out Bravo for setting her up as a target for such backlash, rather than airing footage proving that the necessary trip was required by production. As we have already reported, Lisa tweeted Bravo and Evolution Media, to let them know how she felt, about the contrived editing. Evolution offered a snotty response, reminding her that they aired a snippet clip, allowing her to tell her own story.

It is obvious that Evolution deliberately passed on addressing Lisa’s point. Bravo chose to dedicate an entire segment of the show to Yolanda’s Lyme-Raiser, while ignoring Lisa’s simultaneous reality. Fans rallied to support Lisa’s unusual blast, on a network that threw her to the wolves. 

Bravo tirelessly supports the ultimate manipulator of the season, Yolanda Foster-then, Hadid-now. The network highlights every nuance of Yolanda’s  quasi-illness, and resorts to tossed off cast members, to supply sympathy, and synchronized validation. The whole season has been crafted around a woman who shows up whenever she feels like it, with little evident concern  or commitment to production. Yolanda self-obsessively spins the cast in circles, with Bravo’s blessing.   

I find it bizarre that Bravo has chosen to sell out their fan foundation, while uplifting and hawking a rickety character who has proven herself sneaky, and unreliable. A known drunk and a junkie shoplifter are Bravo’s go-to cheerleaders, for their Lymey darling. However, it must be hard to hear their slurring support, through the roar of Lisa Vanderpump fans.

    It is very apparent that Bravo is trying to take LVP down ….. I am not interested in watching anything Bravo puts out there since they enable felons and rewards them with Lexus cars and pays off debts …. and violence; Lisa Rinna and Brandi Skankville, and drunks Jailbird Joe and Kim Richards …..

    • Morning Cha! You better PRACH!

      • chacha1

        Good Morning Seusseroo and All 🙂

    • Kate Davies

      Yep, Andy is a twisted eff and I gather Alex Baskin is too since he is so cozy with and over-the-moon over Brandi

  • JustSayin

    These mother fuckers must think we’re stupid. Bravo makes no sense as a network, I swear they TRY to insult and upset their viewers.

    • Hi Just…..what a crock of shit and an insult to the viewers intelligence.

      • JustSayin

        Exactly! Don’t piss on my leg and tell me it’s raining.

    • itsjustme

      Insulting our intelligence is what they do best!
      I’d love for LVP to call it quits and see how long the show would last without her. I’d give it ONE SEASON. I for one wouldn’t watch that much I can assure them!

  • Evolution media can kiss my grits with this whack ass response. Clearly they dodged LVP’s entire point. She wanted them to confirm THEY made her go to London and instead they responded with LVP’s words they fed her to say on screen.

  • Sandy Wood

    Won’t be surprised if this is the final straw for LVP…she doesn’t need Bravo anyhow.
    If she wants to remain on TV, I am sure many networks would be ready to give her a “lifestyle show”…unlike Yolanda’s pipedream.

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    I was disgusted by Evolutions reply, how disingenuous to pout out that they aired her words when they also aired Yolanda’s LIES that LVP didn’t want to go.
    Remember last season when Kim said she was forced by Bravo to go to poker night despite the fact she was in pain and she said that was why Monty gave her the pain meds? Isn’t it amazing that they did that to her but Yolanda gets a big fat pass over and over?

    • chacha1

      Yolanda will also threaten them if they give her a hard time ….. that is all that Yolanda knows and is good at , how to bully people and telling LIES

    • SMDRN66

      I wish they showed LVP going back to the UK to renew her passport. That would have been more interesting and entertaining than that phony Lyme gala.

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        Me too!

    • chacha1

      ITA but be careful Yo-nuts is BFF’s with Kim Richards now and since she has so much influence over that show she may get her back on the show ….. everyone backs off from that crazy bitch Yolanda and I am waiting for her to get her come around, hope it is soon …. I hate liars !!!

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        IKR? What’s really laughable about Kim and Yolanda is that Kim accused her of using her illness as an excuse to get out of things she said or did back in S3 reunion!

  • Birdie

    Bravo is disgusting and rewards the lowest creatures–while the workers who haul in the fans get hung out to dry. This show would be nothing without LVP–Bravo may just get the chance to find that out.

  • MidwestMiddie

    So there really is a Bravo Production Company? I assumed that was a fallacy and
    production was done by computer. I mean Bravo Production has been deaf, dumb and blind
    to Bravo Fans preferences for years. Who knew real people, getting paid salaries, could
    be so aloof and ignorant? This team has expressed nothing but disdain for viewers and
    more proof can be seen in this season’s RHBH.
    Save your pennies, darlings ……….other networks and sites like Netflix offer
    viewers REAL ENTERTAINMENT.

    • TeaLuvR

      👊 boom!!

  • Elizabeth Fisher

    I have always said the reason they put up with Munchies bullshit is they don’t want to incur her wrath on social media. Munchies will call out Evolution and Andy as being “stupid” and “ignorant” if they even give the slightest hint that they do not believe she is sick.

    • chacha1

      Yolanda is a bully, she is a dirty gossip, and the only friends Yolanda has is low class trash

  • JustSayin

    I love LVP’s expression in the pic above. It’s like you can hear her thinking, “Bitch, please.”

    • Elizabeth Fisher

      For realz… no one can give “evil side eye” like my queen

  • Blackheath

    The response by Evolution to LVP was incredibly unprofessional in a manner of speaking from employer to employee. It came off as catty. This company should not be biased when it comes to what they show, that is for the viewers to do. I know they need to create drama but they can do it without showing preferential treatment. Since YoYo has been dictating when she will film, Bravo/Evolution could have easily said to her that they need someone more full time and she can be a friend of the housewives. For the future Bravo/Evolution should demand (not sure if it is legal) to see medical records before allowing people like YOYo and Brooke’s to be filmed. I only say this because you have someone like YoYo who has never been diagnosed by a legitimate Doctor going around spewing her treatments for Lyme disease. Now just playing devils advocate but what if a person with Actual Lyme disease who is desperate and go and try one of her many treatments thinking it may help them. We all saw that cupboard full of pills and whatever. Then you have Brooks who is using a company’s letterhead to “prove” he has cancer, this company is now unwittingly involved and has to get lawyers involved. Now I know Bravo/evolution has no control over Brooke’s and the letterhead as he did it on his own, I just think that when it comes to illness and a cast member wants to highlight it on the show, there needs to be proof and it needs to be shown to the public with some responsibility. Hence the magic word Responsibility!

    • sideof Sour Cream

      You are assuming that Bravo, and their employees like Yolanda are separate entities. My thought is they are one and the same. The only reason to continue to watch these shows is to try and peak behind the curtain. And by curtain I mean Lynn Curtain. LOL>

      This show and all Bravo shows are scripted. If Lisa and Ken Vanderpump, or Icky Vicky didn’t approve of the script they wouldn’t show up.

      Bravo is paying attention to Yoliar because her story went off the rails. It got too real. Bravo panicked and therefore made this season’s fight about it. BRAVO is the one that throws rocks and hides hands. The HWs are just hangry gals looking to make a buck and maybe get some fame.

      Kelsey Grammer cut his losses, as did David Foster, but Bravo will keep on pimping as long as we all believe it. (or pretend to believe it)

      • Blackheath

        You have raised excellent points. I keep forgetting that this stuff is scripted.

        • sideof Sour Cream

          IT’s easy to do! 🙂 Especially with BH because the cast has some acting skills. These women are good at making it seem like they care sometimes.

      • Dottie WhiteTrashGal

        Well, E-volution went DE-volution tonight. That crazy crap Rinna, Eileen, and Erika came up with was such off the charts, badly written nonsense, I felt like I was down the rabbit hole. They’ve gone from Yolanda’s LIES Journey to Eileen’s Apology Fixation to Eileen’s Manipulation Fixation to Rinna’s FlipFlop to Kyle’s FlipFlop to IT’S ALL LVP’S FAULT! With production throwing in old scenes of LVP and Ken being accused of every already proven false story in the entire six seasons, it was clear someone in production wants LVP out and the cast isn’t even trying to make it look real.

        • Jason Forrister

          You sound a bit paranoid….These claims on LVP are by a list of people a mile long. There is truth to it as LVP has to control people…thats why she loves dogs and her butler um I mean husband so much. They only worship her and never cross her.

          • Dottie WhiteTrashGal

            Excuse me…I’m paranoid? Are you attacking me? [LOL Get it? Oh, nevermind.]

            Perhaps you should look at that “long list” and consider the sources: every accusation against LVP is always unproven, petty nonsense. They have always been and this season is no exception. Kyle corroborated LVP’s account of what was said and done, up until this last episode and look at how Kyle LIED, changing her story to join THE GANG-UP. To create a storyline, some cast member twists something said or just fabricates it out of thin air. But you believe what you like. I’ll stick with facts, not innuendo and mean girl mentality. If LVP were the evil genius these women claim, they’re even stupider than I think to go after her with, once again, NOTHING but their imagination.

        • sideof Sour Cream

          It’s so silly! Did you watch WWHL last night? Kyle was on and looked pleased as punch when she and Lisa won the poll. She didn’t look like someone who had just been vindicated by public opinion, she looked like someone who just won a prize. Because she knows fan favorite = $$$.

    • chacha1

      And you can bet Daisy and Dr. Woo Woo in Washington used bogus letterhead to make up Lymes diagnosis for Not GiGi and Underwear ….. remember the selfie Yo-Nuts took of vials of body fluid samples with all their names on it and Bella’s birthday was all messed up. SO those papers that Yolanda is waving around LVP and bringing to the reunion are all generated on a computer ….. oh hell I can make up a diploma saying I graduated Suma Cum Laude from Yale

      • Vicky8675309

        the non-gigi siblings were diagnosed over the phone (no joke)! lol

      • Blackheath

        Chacha1! Stop doing that! I am choking on my drink now! Last week was pretzels and this week drinks. I swear I am going to have to have someone proof read your comments to me and forewarn me of when you use “Underwear”. The tears are pouring down my face! 😉 Keep it up! I love to laugh!

    • LovelyAmberRose1

      ITA about passing a physical or showing medical records. Much to my shame I watch BGC on Oxygen and one girl said she had stage 3 cervical cancer and was refusing treatment. Well that put the other girls in an emotional talespin with tears and sympathy for all. The producers made her get a ‘second opinion’ and when the results came back told her she NEVER had cancer and she had to tell the other girls. Boy were they pissed. LOL

      • Blackheath

        Is BGC, Bad Girls Club? I watched that when it first came out, then it got a little to out of control for me as these girls were now fighting just for being a bad ass. I would be livid if that was done to me. I would not speak to that person ever again, that is pathological behavior.

  • TartLemon

    So, when is the production company gonaa come out against Munchie? Why did they allow the scam perpetrated by Vicki in the OC?

    BACK TF OFF LVP!!

  • sideof Sour Cream

    This show needs new writers.

    • MidwestMiddie

      New writers, New Producers and New Cast Members.

      • Babson_Chick

        Yes!!

    • JustNotCrazyAboutBitches

      Writers ,,,LoL ain’t that the truth. This crap is so scripted it lawfable!

  • RRRobin

    Thank you, Beach Spin!!!

  • BBB1975

    Uh oh…Does this mean Bravo/Evolution is pissed at her for speaking out?

    • Babson_Chick

      I think so!

      • BBB1975

        That doesn’t bode well for Lisa, But I don’t think (hope) Bravo won’t push too hard. Lisa has a huge fan base.

        • Vicky8675309

          the ratings aren’t that great for the show so they need her since they would drop further without her (imo)

          • Weeds1

            I think Vanderpump Rules has good ratings and if they force Lisa out, it would be both shows.

          • Jason Forrister

            All these shows are a dime a dozen…. Also the show will go on regardless. LVP needs the shows in my opinion, people do not go to SUR for the food!

          • Weeds1

            I have to disagree. Lisa and Ken didn’t become multi-millionaires from these shows. They already were…

  • Babson_Chick

    If Lisa leaves I’m going too, so there you bloody production people!

  • tibi

    Lisa is the show. You want to dump on her you better find a whole new group of people that want to watch someone complain about Lyme for the whole show. The only interesting person with a life is Lisa V.

    • JustNotCrazyAboutBitches

      Oh bull pucky … I’ve enjoyed LVP like any respectable card carrying ‘mo, but she isn’t the entire show. Could care less whether she’s on or not. She belongs with the coke heads and hors who she pays to be her friends at SUR and VB anyway. Let her to do that show full time.

      • Bryan

        I sure as hell do not want to watch some dutch half wit go on about her lyme illness LVP is the show and the other just orbit her, some better then others !

        • Suzanne Adey

          If LVP quit the show I would quit watching it for sure. If Yolander is on next season then I am definitely out. Unfortunately Bravo won’t fire Yolander so it’s looking kinda sketchy for next season.

          • Bryan

            I hope they at least make her the “friend of” her Lyme Journey should take her away

        • JustNotCrazyAboutBitches

          So you’re saying she’s not even a real Dutch oven, but more like a cheapo white Frigidaire from Home Depot.

          • Bryan

            Not even that!

          • annabelle5150

            She’s a Crock Pot. A Crock o’ shit Pot.

  • JustNotCrazyAboutBitches

    This is the passive/aggressive BS Vanderpumpy has been pulling all season long, and now she’s going to play the victim. There’s an old expression in the reality TV world; they can’t edit what you don’t say. Hope being a c*nt to everyone who crossed your path was worth it to her …. may be time to say bye bye indeed.

  • T’s Martini Lounge

    So now she’s a victim, after being on this show and Pump Rules for years? Then don’t go on reality TV. You can quit, Daaaahhhling! But she won’t, she just as desperate a fame HO as all the others. She is no different.

    • Jason Forrister

      LVP needs to be on reality show…Look at the Yelp reviews for it ,they are horrendous and it seems as if people only go there for the celebrity aspect and not the food!

  • Bryan

    She shouldn’t complain about this, she should just admit, ” I was busy, couldn’t make it,” Oopsi doopsi, that whole Lyme award nonsense was just that Nonsense

    • Birdie

      GASP–how dare you trod upon the holy ground that marks Yolanda’s Lyme journey.

      • SassyMcAsspants

        Pffffffftttt! I didn’t realize that tortellini could make such a stellar projectile. I just spit that sucker across the room!

      • Bryan

        I hope her horses take a dump on it

    • JustNotCrazyAboutBitches

      Yes, but then like Eileen (who was accused of hating dogs when she passed on the march) Lisa then would have been accused of being anti-Lyme.

      • Bryan

        Well the difference is there are more dog lovers then there are Lyme lovers so in the long run most if not everyone would agree LVP missed nothing

        • Birdie

          HAHAHAHAHA …that is surely the truth!

        • JustNotCrazyAboutBitches

          At least she was spared Kyle’s uncontrollable remorseful sobbing.

  • Blackheath

    Out of curiosity, why were Brandi and Kim not at the Lyme Gala, did YoYo not invite them? Now that would have been an interesting show!

    • SassyMcAsspants

      Yeah, good point! They’re probably too broke and Bravo wouldn’t foot the bill.

    • Dottie WhiteTrashGal

      Kim probably couldn’t leave the state without a judge’s permission. Wasn’t she under court supervision while her various cases were being sorted?

  • JustNotCrazyAboutBitches

    So HalleEFFINGlujah! There ya go Lisa, that wasn’t so hard was it? Kyle is right; she’ll never hear another peep out of Eileen. Next stop; Yolanda and her kids, and probably Mo’. My faith has been restored in the ol’ girl – I hate being cross with LVP! (my favorite HW of all time)!

  • Dottie WhiteTrashGal

    After tonight’s episode, I believe someone at Evolution is getting rid of LVP. I’ve never seen such a disgusting, blatantly fabricated example of groupthink in my life. Worst episode from any Bravo Housewives show, ever. And as bad as every single one of these women were to LVP, ganging up on her and writing a story as if because they made it up it’s all true, Kyle was THE WORST. She not only changed her story right before our very eyes, she tried to get LVP to LIE about what she said so Kyle could straddle the fence and play both sides. Then on WWHL Kyle had THE NERVE to act like she supported LVP! Backstabbing, dirty, rotten, betrayer that she is, she drove that bus right over LVP and then backed it up and did it three more times! I better stop here or I’ll say something as vile as the new resident dragqueen….

    • belleyd

      so disagree..after tonight I think LVP was completely exposed..yes, I love her animal rights activism, support of LGBT community, but she is a shifty m#fker and has gotten away w. it for years..like her much better on VPump rules cause we see the true LVP..not all this fake oh whoa is me, I am a victim LVP.

  • It’s scary how so many people blindly refuse to accept the truth no matter they’re shown. I’ve never seen fans of any other Housewife react like this when their Housewife has been the ‘bad guy’. The conspiracy theories that are being invented to try and defend Lisa are insane. Her fans should just go “Oh she’s busted but we still love her anyway” but they deny the truth just like how LVP herself refuses to apologise or do anything that might hurt the perfect image she’s constructed for herself

    • SurfDoggie

      Oh, FFS. LVP completely and totally had a discussion with Kyle and Rinna. They all agreed that Yolanda was batshit crazy. LVP cannot say anything on camera about Yolanda because of her friendship with Mohamed, Shiva, and the kids. Mohamed has already had too many years of crazy in his life to deal with more Yolanda drama.

      She absolutely told Rinna to bring it up if she wanted to and absolutely discussed the possibility of a story line with Kyle involved. After watching the sympathy pouring out towards Brooks, Kyle decided not to become involved. LVP told both Kyle and Rinna she could not and would not be involved.

      After discussions with Eileen, who was bitter about the “affair” remark, and after seeing what keyboard warriors did to doubters of Brooks cancer, Rinna backtracked. Hard.

      She would have been a hero had she stood her ground, but Eileen convinced Rinna to join team Yo.

      Rinna needs to learn that what goes on behind the scenes is very different from what should be said on camera. SHE and SHE ALONE decided to yammer on about Yolanda while the others tiptoed around the issue. Not a single person on that cast believes Yolanda is as incapacitated as she pretends to be. Even Erika. But it is much easier to pretend to believe.

      Yolanda then decided to break the agreement everyone had made to refuse to film with Brandi. So Rinna goes nuts but can’t say why on camera.

      As to your assertion that LVP refuses to apologize, she repeatedly apologized and EILEEN ACCEPTED THOSE APOLOGIES. If the apology wasn’t good enough for Eileen, she should have stated it AT THE TIME instead of accepting them. The apologies did not consist of “I’m sorry that I said that” because LVP WASN’T SORRY that she said it. Thus, all of you people demanding that LVP apologize or that she doesn’t apologize are criticizing her for refusing to be insincere.

      Does this make you happy? Not many people believe LVP had nothing to do with this. But it doesn’t make her a bad person to protect a years long friendship. It makes her . . . a good friend.

      • MelE5150

        Nice theory

    • Dottie WhiteTrashGal

      As soon as ONE of these accusers shows us PROOF that anything they claim is actually not some petty, twisted, or complete fabrication to serve their own personal agenda, I’ll be happy to “accept the truth.” So far, not one has ever been able to do that, even with cameras following them all around for five months. Every single “gotcha” has been an exaggeration, an outright obvious lie about what was said or done by LVP, or, at worst, disagreements and misunderstandings between them. What are we supposed to do? Hate LVP because they do? Over what? Yolanda’s questionable illness being brought up as Munchausen by Rinna on camera–which they have ALL admitted was hers ALONE? This attack on LVP is as fake as Yolanda’s “Chronic Lyme Disease: the Family Edition.”

    • Sony

      Well, if and when she is busted, I will love her anyway. 🙂

      However, I am not going to rely on hearsay or someone who is inconsistent with their own story.

  • SurfDoggie

    LVP is a smart enough businesswoman to know not to bite the hand that feeds you. I suspect she is not going to renew her contract for next year (or is going to negotiate with an iron fist).

    I predict that next year she will either be an uncredited producer or she will not be on the show. And without LVP, there is no RHoBH.

  • Sony

    Thanks, Beach Spin. Glad I found this blogsite.

    The producers must be sociopaths.
