John Sessa And John Blizzard From Vanderpump Dogs Come To Lisa Vanderpump's Defense And Address Dog Drama!

John Sessa and John Blizzard from Vanderpump Dogs are sharing their side of the story in the now infamous dog drama which is currently based around Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Dorit Kemsley, Lisa Vanderpump and even Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave.

During a recent appearance on the On the Rocks Radio Show with Alexander Rodriguez podcast, Sessa, who works as the executive director of Vanderpump Dogs claimed that LVP wasn’t “up to speed” when filming began on the RHOBH and he was there with her to try and help out, according to Reality Blurb.

While Mellencamp Arroyave has suggested that LVP planned to kick off the dog drama about Dorit when she gave Lucy away to another woman during the premiere episode of the Bravo hit reality series, John says he has emails to prove her timeline is wrong.

“It’s not true, the timeline. I have emails. So, if you want receipts, Lisa Rinna, I can give you some receipts,” he said. “On the Wednesday, before we were filming, I had to sign all the location agreements. The location agreement had to happen on a Wednesday. I got word on Sunday that one of my dogs had ended up in a kill shelter.”

As previously reported, prior to adopting Lucy, Dorit adopted a first dog, which she later returned because according to John, just as Lucy, Kemsley revealed that the dog was a danger to her family, specifically her two children. John used air-quotes when describing the alleged “biting.”

As for Lucy's adoption, John began to suspect something was wrong after his adoption coordinator, Hannah, reached out to Dorit on two occasions to check on the dog but got “no response,” reports Reality Blurb.

Sessa revealed that he and Hannah were extra involved with Kemsley’s second adoption, adding that Lucy was not a rescue dog.

“I have Hannah over here who trained the dog, I hand-reared the second dog from a nursery at my house. Because I’m like, ‘Okay, let’s not give Dorit a rescue dog. Let’s give her a dog that I’ve hand-reared who has never had any issues,’” he revealed. “This is a dog that was born in my house, bottle-fed by me… Hannah spent three weeks training Dorit on how to take care of the dog. We took the dog back for neutering. We never do any of this, just so you know.”

After learning that Lucy ended up in a killer shelter, he claimed that he immediately went to Lisa and Ken Todd‘s home.

“I don’t think Dorit did the right thing. I think she should have brought the dog back to us,” he continued. “We are all philanthropists. We are all big-hearted people. If Dorit were to come down to our place and say, ‘I f**ked up and I’m sorry,’ we would have said, ‘Ok, let’s deal with this.’”

John claims that Dorit sent her assistant to Vanderpump Dogs to discuss the Lucy situation. He also confirms what LVP previously revealed that Kemsley has not paid the $5,000 penalty fee for not returning Lucy back to Vanderpump Rules.

Sessa claims that the situation caused him to even clash with both Lisa and Ken. “Ken and I had the biggest rile in the backyard because he’s saying, ’Protect my friends’ and I said, ‘F**k you.’ I don’t have loyalty to Dorit. I have loyalty to my foundation and I have loyalty to my dogs,” John revealed.

Sessa also claims that LVP tried to shut down the story about the dog drama with Dorit, but he claims that he refused to let it go and he felt that it was not fair that Dorit deserved special treatment due to her celebrity status.

“How am I supposed to be an executive director for a foundation that is international and say, ‘Oh, when something bad happens and it involves a celebrity, we just push that under the rug?’ It doesn’t work,” he said.

John ended the interview by slamming LVP's co-stars. “Lisa needed her friends. Kyle has been her best friend, one of her best friends for over a decade,” he added. “When your brother dies, you are opening all of the stuff. You really need your friends around you and I think this season was a time that they could have really moved around her and said, ‘Listen, you are one of the OGs and we’ve got your back,’ whereas before, they said, ‘Lisa’s finally weak. Let’s get her while she’s down.’ And it was like ‘Mean Girls.’”

As for John Blizzard, he responded to Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave's text messages she shared on this week's episode of the Bravo hit reality series.


“FYI - the YES was to the previous statement made by Teddi (not shown) that "Either way.It will come out" [the dog situation] & the "idk" was cut out responding to the question," he clarified, adding; “"But didn't Lisa tell you to tell me!?" Looks like I'm in a bit of dog shit anyways @lisavanderpump lol,” he tweeted.
