RHOBH’s Lisa Vanderpump ‘didn’t want to leave’ show but quit after producers refused to allow her to plot story lines

LISA Vanderpump dramatically quit RHOBH half way through the ninth season.

But her former co-star says Lisa didn't want to leave, and had a hand in orchestrating the storylines on the Bravo reality show.

Kathryn Edwards, 55, who starred in one season of the show, claimed that the 59-year-old SUR owner wasn't ready to say goodbye to the show when she left.

“I don’t think that [Vanderpump] wanted to get off of the Housewife show,” Edwards told a recent episode of the Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef podcast.

She continued: "I think that she felt like she had to play her hand and I think she tried to stay on it to some degree with some of the things that I know of.”

Edwards – who starred on season 6 of the reality series – continued to claim that Lisa was controlling the storylines on the show.

“She asked for some specific things that the show wasn’t going to give her to make it better so she can save face,” the former reality star said.

“And she walked away. But she, in my opinion, kinda got a little bit too big for the ensemble cast. And she did produce, she did try to control the storylines.”

Kathryn told Yontef about one specific incident when the group was filming a scene at costar Erika Jayne‘s house and the situation was steered in a different direction by Vanderpump.

“We were filming the scene at Erika’s house andTom [Girardi] was there,” she said. “And it was after I had already told Vanderpump and the rest of the girls like, ‘Hey, you know, Erika was like, warning me about you and I should stay away from you.’

"And she said that like you’re a sniper or whatever it was. And so we’re there having this dinner and we were all great. Everyone was getting along.”

The Married With Children alum said that the cast were “having a really nice time,” but Vanderpump was contacted by a show producer, who told her to liven things up.

“Vanderpump got a text that said, ‘This dinner is really boring, make something happen,’” she explained. “So she showed it to me and I thought, OK, well, let’s go then. Let’s make dinner and get out of here.”

Kathryn told the podcast that the scene they filmed was edited to look more dramatic on TV.

“And the whole conversation was completely different than the way they ended up showing it,” Edwards said. “There was no kicking anyone out of the house. We all hugged. And it was great. But they made that look so different.”

Vanderpump first appeared on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in 2010 and left last year.

The restauranteur has continued to appear on her spinoff show, Vanderpump Rules.
