Andy Cohen Breaks His Silence On Lisa Vanderpump’s RHOBH Exit; Calls Her “Iconic” And Says “No One Will Ever Replace Her” — Plus, Andy Addresses Rumors That Kathy Hilton Is Replacing LVP!

Andy Cohen has broken his silence on Lisa Vanderpump’s departure from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after nine seasons. The Real Housewives executive producer says he was sad to see Vanderpump go and disappointed that she didn't attend the recent reunion taping.

“I wish she had been there, what can I tell you. I really wish she had been there,” he said on his SiriusXM Radio show Andy Cohen Live, according to Deadline. “And I hope and I think she actually could have left with some resolution.”

“No one will ever replace her,” Cohen said. “And no one can replace her. I mean, it has been well-documented that when we were developing the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I was not totally sold on doing the show … but when I saw Lisa Vanderpump on that casting tape, man, she was the one who really sold me on doing the show.”

Cohen also addressed the rumors that Kathy Hilton would replace Vanderpump on the Bravo hit reality series. Cohen said he’s had “absolutely no conversations about any potential casting news. But admitted that he was pleasantly surprised by positive reaction from fans.

Cohen admits that fans will continue to see LVP's luxurious lifestyle on her spin-off Vanderpump Rules. “She is iconic. And I am so glad that we will continue to see more of Lisa — in all of her glory — on Vanderpump Rules,” Cohen added.
