My take on this is that LVP refused to film with the other cast members and wanted to be filmed in her new kitchen,at Vanderpump Dogs, with her animals, etc. Since this is an ensemble casted show, production cut LVP’s solo scenes which resulted in her refusal to film the reunion and subsequently to quit RHOBH.
Allegedly, LVP has now threatened to take Vanderpump Rules to another network.
I liked LVP in the early seasons but don’t find her fun or entertaining anymore. All of their sketchy lawsuits, and strange disagreements with friends and associates makes me think they are not as good hearted as they try to portray themselves.
