If you ask us, the greatest move Bravo has ever made was giving Lisa Vanderpump a spin-off series. Vanderpump Rules isn’t just our guilty pleasure, but it also brings in some major ratings for the cable network. So, now that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has opened up a new restaurant, PUMP, will it follow in SUR’s footsteps?
With her future on RHOBH up in the air, Entertainment Tonight spoke to Lisa about her plans for her reality TV future, with the Brit saying, “If you can’t see me on [RHOBH], you can see me on Vanderpump Rules. The jury is still out, so we’ll see.”
All of the veteran RHOBH stars have signed on for Season 5 — after a supposed battle for more money — making Lisa the only one in limbo. If she decides not to return [gasp] is there any chance she could score yet another spin-off, this one focused on her new West Hollywood gay bar/restaurant?
“You know what, sometimes the [Vanderpump Rules stars] are down here [at PUMP] and we do film down here a little bit — like, we were filming last night,” Lisa dished. “But I try to keep the crazies down there a little bit.”
Hmm, Lisa isn’t exactly giving us a yes or no, so let’s see what Bravo boss Andy Cohen has to say about how a Housewife becomes deserving of a spin-off: "Someone needs to be going through a serious life transition that will take them out of [the franchise]," he said. "They just have to be able to hold their own for an hour. It's a lot of time.”
If that’s what Bravo requires, they’ve definitely seen that Lisa is able to hold her own on Vanderpump Rules. Hopefully there’s another show in the cards for our favorite Brit — but we won’t hold our breath.
