The last time Lisa Vanderpump saw Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson, the 56-year-old restauranteur was trading barbs with them on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion.RELATED: Trio of 'Real Housewives' run the gamut in Los Angeles-area real estate
It was a tense argument built around a season of accusations from the Housewives claiming that Vanderpump had been manipulating them to engage in discussions they didn’t want to be a part of — including a plot to expose Yolanda Hadid’s alleged Munchausen Syndrome.
But on Tuesday’s premiere season 7 premiere of the hit Bravo franchise, both Rinna and Davidson were ready to leave the battles in the past and move on.
Vanderpump? Not so much.
“I think maybe Eileen Davidson and Lisa Rinna would probably be thrilled if I wasn’t part of this circle of friends,” she told viewers. “But no — I’m coming back. And I’m coming back stronger than ever.”
“I had a really miserable time in Dubai,” she confessed, reflecting on the season 6 trip. “Rinna kept going on at me saying I told her to say something about Yolanda’s health, which wasn’t true. Rinna was just unusually aggressive. And Eileen was just backing her up. Eileen also kept going on at my about mentioning the word ‘affair,’ which she had had. It was just a nightmare.”
Kyle Richards hoped Vanderpump would find a way to move on — but admitted the process might take some time. “I’m sure they’re going to be okay eventually,” Richards said. “I know Lisa so well, and she does hold on to things for a long time. I don’t think she’s losing any sleep over Lisa Rinna and Eileen.”
“I mean, is she sitting there with a voodoo doll?” Richards joked. “Maybe.”
