Lisa Vanderpump Confirms She Hasn’t Quit RHOBH And Sets The Record Straight On Season 9 Drama!

Lisa Vanderpump is setting the record straight about her future on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills amid reports claiming she’ll be exiting after Season 9 of the Bravo hit series due to her feud with other cast members.

“There’s a plethora of stories that say I’m quitting. If I had quit, I would have said it,” Vanderpump told PEOPLE. “It wouldn’t be leaked on an outlet. Can we just trust that I would come up … I’ve never had a problem with kind of coming forward, speaking my mind.”

“I am in this season,” she added. “Obviously there are some parts I missed and you’ll see why. I think maybe we’ll have a better understanding when you watch the show.”

UPDATE: Lisa Vanderpump confirmed to TMZ that she is not going anywhere - yet. “I can't say I'll make an exit at the end of the season because who knows what happens next year. It's like saying I'm not coming to the Christmas party next year - I don't know what's going to happen next year... but for me personally, I had a very very tough time after I lost my brother, as you know about.”

“I was opening TomTom, filming Vanderpump Rules, I wasn't as emotionally strong as maybe as I could have been. So, to open TomTom, do twenty four episodes or whatever of Vanderpump Rules, which I'm a co-producer - to be involved with the center [Vanderpump Dogs] and involved with all the dogs and the three other businesses that you're tour bus visits - I was overwhelmed, I really was.”

She continued: “I am in the season, I did film - most of it - some parts I had to step back. But you do see me a lot on it. I don't know what will happen, I have such loyalty to Bravo and Evolution because they've given me a platform - they've been so incredible to me so my loyalty is to them. As long as they want me on the show, I'll endeavor to do my best.”

“But unfortunately, I wasn't up to speed this year. I did a lot and a lot I've filmed on my own and I said "I just cannot do this - this time of my life" and I haven't been in close contact with any of the women.”

She added: “Denise Richards I have because she's been rescuing dogs, I had contact with her and Camille because she lost her house, so I had a lot of contact with her. I'm trying to be supportive - but the other women - no. I can't tell you what goes on the Housewives, you have to see how it plays it.”

“If I do, it won't be like people supposing it,” she told the outlet if the rumors were true about her quitting the show. “I will say something.”

She continued: “Nothing is decided a thousand percent. Nothing's decided.”

LVP said something similar about her future role on RHOBH to Entertainment Tonight. “I haven't said anything for two months. Now, everybody's been talking about this. I've just been going about my business and doing my things,” Vanderpump said. “I am in the show. I have not quit, and if I did quit, it wouldn't just be a leaked story. I would be upfront, and I have a lot of loyalty to the production company and the network.”

“But it has been a difficult season... But it's been a difficult year for me personally, and the season was very challenging. So I'm in a lot of it, but there are some parts I skip, and I think people have seen that,” she added.

So does that mean that LVP will return to the show for Season 10? “It’s like saying am I going to a Christmas party next year,” she told PEOPLE. “You don’t know, do you? You don’t know if you’re going to be invited back. You don’t know if they’re going to do the show. So that’s a little hypothetical, really. I really don’t know. Each year changes.”

“If the timing was right and I felt good about it, sure, but I just… I’m not that combative, frankly!” she added. “I think you’ve seen that.”

Following reports that she was quitting the show after nine seasons, alluded to the rumors in a tweet: “Let’s just focus on the important things right now.”

She also tweeted: “If you hear it from me... It has to be true. Until then, not so much.”
