Lisa Vanderpump Stops Filming New Season Of Vanderpump Rules After Her Mother Jean Vanderpump Dies A Year After Brother’s Passing!

We are sad to report that Lisa Vanderpump’s mother, Jean Vanderpump, died at the age of 84 in England on Monday, June 17, according to Us Weekly. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules star's rep confirmed the news on Thursday, June 20.

According to The Daily Mail, LVP has stopped filming season 8 of Vanderpump Rules in light of her mom’s passing and is expected to fly to London in the coming week to make funeral arrangements.

“She requested privacy at this time while she prepares for her trip back home to England to deal with the funeral,” a close friend of Vanderpump told Us Weekly, adding that she is clearly “shocked and devastated.”

News of Jean’s death comes more than a year after Vanderpump’s brother, Mark Vanderpump, died of an alleged drug overdose in April 2018.

As you may recall, Lisa struggled to film season 9 of RHOBH following the death of her brother, seeking help through counseling and antidepressants.

Earlier this month, LVP announced that she was leaving RHOBH after nine seasons. When the publication asked her if she was returning to RHOBH next season, she replied: "I think they've made it pretty impossible for me to go back frankly," she admitted to DailyMailTV.  "So ... no."

LVP has been hinting for many months that she was quitting the Bravo hit reality series. "After 380 episodes sometimes you have got to say - okay enough," she told DailyMailTV back in May.

She also admitted that she remains emotionally 'hurt' by her fall outs with co-stars. LVP claims the that the stress of Puppygate drama had not left her "in a good place mentally."

"Unfortunately this season in Housewives it just became too much for me, where I was in my life at the time, personal things I was dealing with I did not cope so well," she revealed.

LVP explained how her drama on the Bravo hit reality series were not emotionally "fake" and "have never been more real," she said.

"I think if it was scripted it would not hurt so much. Unfortunately when I was filming last year I was not in a good place myself mentally. So I was not as ready to take on maybe what Housewives entailed. I just floundered."

"I opened Tom Tom, I brought that to fruition, I was working hard on this. We were working hard with our philanthropy with our dogs. We are opening a sanctuary in China. We had a lot of things going on."

"I lost my only sibling, I was doing Vanderpump Rules - I am an EP on that. There was a lot going on. And all this stuff I think it was unfair. And it kept coming at me. It just became too much really," she continued. "After 380 episodes sometimes you have got to say okay enough."

"I am not a housewife that created a business... and to me when I signed up to Housewives it was a lot of fun," she told DailyMailTV at that time.

She added: "Being a restaurateur, business woman and philanthropist is paramount to me. So I will continue to do that after Housewives because that is what I do."
