Lisa Vanderpump Responds To Lisa Rinna’s Claims Former ‘RHOBH’ Co-Stars Deserve A Cut For ‘Vanderpump Dogs’ Series — Brandi Glanville Weighs In!

Lisa Vanderpump responds to Lisa Rinna’s claims that her former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-stars deserve to be paid for her Vanderpump Dogs spinoff show.

“Well, does everybody — do they deserve a check for Overserved as well?” Vanderpump told Entertainment Tonight about her E! reality series, which is separate from Peacock’s Vanderpump Dogs. “Because that was [also filmed] at my house. What’s that got to do with anything? You know, I don’t know who says that. I have fond memories of Beverly Hills Housewives. My favorite tagline was, ‘I’m passionate about dogs, just not crazy about bitches.'”

Rinna is referring to the drama that went down during Season 9 of RHOBH, Vanderpump found herself in the middle of a divide when her Vanderpump Dogs staff member John Blizzard claimed to Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp that Dorit Kemsley’s former adopted puppy wound up at a kill shelter. 

In March 2019, multiple sources revealed that a spinoff show that would revolve around the Vanderpump Dogs rescue center was “in the works,” which upset some of Vanderpump’s costars at the time.

“Several of the other Housewives are pissed because they feel like they were used, and specifically Teddi and Dorit were thrown under the bus and into drama all so this spinoff could happen,” a source told Us Weekly. “They are not happy about it and not happy that it’s happening with Lisa when she didn’t even show up for most of the season of filming.”

Rinna took to social media that same month to call out the situation. “I’m a hustler. I make no bones about that. I think you get paid for what you do. So my feeling is, if we indeed are servicing a spinoff, we should be paid for it,” Rinna wrote via her Instagram Stories in March 2019. “I am so happy for all of us to use this platform for makeup lines, bathing suit lines, network TV shows, restaurants, [charities], clothing lines, fitness empires, you name it. I support these women, 100 percent.”

Rinna added that she expected to be paid for her involvement in the new project. “But if you are going to use our services without telling us — that we are playing out a storyline to launch a pilot for a new show and you don’t compensate us extra for that — yeah, I’m a hustler. I get paid for what I do,” she concluded. “So, if this indeed becomes another show, my lawyer will be calling.”

Once the show was officially picked up, Rinna updated fans with her thoughts. “I was right all along. Everyone lied to my face about this and here we are. So, maybe you’ll believe me this time around,” she captioned an Instagram Story in July 2020 shortly after the new show was announced.

Brandi Glanville appears to agree with Rinna about wanting to get paid for her involvement in the series premiere episode of Vanderpump Rules.

She tweeted, “If the rhobh gals get paid for the  Vandercunt dog show then I would like a check for Vandercunt Rules. I mean seriously I gave then episode one & it wasn't fun. Thanks”
