We’ve seen the ladies deal with a fair share of real-world problems this season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and there was one big shocker that wasn’t even revealed until the Season 2 Lost Footage episode. During one scene, we learn that Lisa Vanderpump had recently been diagnosed with skin cancer.

Lisa and her husband Ken Todd are at an antiques store, preparing for their big party at SUR, when Lisa receives a call from her doctor informing her that he has “good news” and “bad news.” We don’t even hear him get to the good news, as the bad news is that he’s gotten the test results back from a biopsy that was done on her shoulder, and it shows that she has basal cell carcinoma, which is the most common form of skin cancer.

Lisa is understandably upset about the news, so she and Ken leave the antiques place immediately to meet with her doctor. Luckily, we learn that she was able to get the cancer removed and has since received a clean bill of health. Thank goodness! We’re thinking that she’ll keep those shoulders covered up during daylight hours from now.
