I guess I'm unique in that I LOVE Lisa Vanderpump, but I also love Kyle and have enjoyed every other cast member (besides Dorit) at some point. I will miss her, but considering where the ladies are in their relationship, I feel it wouldn't work if she stayed. More than anything, I feel the manipulative one is Lisa Rinna and *she* is who I feel put all this into motion to get rid of LVP. The fact that she threatened to sue Bravo over potentially giving her another spin off told me everything I needed to know. She's been trying to get a spin off for her kids and seeing LVP's success I think annoyed her.
With that said, what will make me watch next season is a proper reboot. I hate that Eileen left because she always had real stuff going on in her life as well as interesting relationships with the ladies. When I look at Teddi, Lisa Rinna and Erika, they had NO storyline this season. They need to stop hoarding housewives and let them go once their story is played out.
They need a truly rich and light hearted person to replace LVP. I would recommend someone like Kathy Hilton as well and if that happens bring on Kim full time. Then try again with a young housewife. Teddi just isn't interesting enough to justify keeping on.
My dream cast would be:
Kyle, Dorit, Kim, Kathy, Denise, Rinna (only bc I feel they wont get rid of her), New Wife
Camille I feel won't return, but if she's willing have her and Eileen as friends. I know many want Brandi, but I feel you should be able to develop a new schemer. She didn't leave because of LVP as she states now. She left because she was obviously making up storylines (which she later admitted) and came off desperate and inauthentic. They need to get away from that type of cheap drama.
