Not So Fast! Lisa Vanderpump Is NOT Quitting 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' -- Yet

‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ OG Lisa Vanderpump has been at the center of a lot of speculation leading up to the season 8 premiere — but she wants you to know that despite rumor, she’s not leaving the franchise just yet.

via TMZ:

Sources close to Lisa tell TMZ … the reality is, reality shows are not the center of her life the way they used to be, but that doesn’t mean she’s hanging up the towel. Sources very, very close to Lisa say she honestly has not made a decision about future seasons, although she has finished filming Season 8.

As for her decision not to go to France … we’re told her priority was her Vanderpump Foundation Gala, which she’s throwing Thursday night. A portion of the proceeds will go to animals affected by the California wildfires.  

Lisa, we’re told, finds it a little absurd that anyone is focusing on the next season of ‘Real Housewives’ when it seems half the state of California is on fire. As it was put to us, “She doesn’t give a s**t about casting for Season 9.”

As for why she’s been a lady of few words on the current season … she’s emotionally upset over the death of her brother, who passed days before filming began for season 8.

From our point of view … it feels like a toss-up as to whether Lisa returns, but it’s clear based on our conversations … she hasn’t decided one way or the other. 

We think Lisa still has another season or two left in her — especially with a new restaurant to promote
