Lisa Vanderpump’s New Spin-Off Show Might Make Her the Next Bethenny Frankel -- In a Bad Way

Eye Roll 4

lisa vanderpumpFile this one under: GIGANTIC EYE-ROLL AND MASSIVE AUDIBLE SIGH. Lisa Vanderpump of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills recently stated that her new show, the terribly titled Vanderpump Rules, came to fruition because her life was "too big" to stay within in the confines of one measly reality show. She also added that that aspect of her life "spoke volumes to Bravo", and warranted its own show.

Lisa. Honey. Sweetie. Don't do it. Please don't make me turn on you. I love you. You are hands-down my favorite out of all the Housewives -- we're talking all franchises here. Don't go and get too big for your britches. I don't want to love to hate you. I just want to love you. Will you let me do that, please?

I'm still holding out. At the time of typing this, I am still a card-carrying member of Team Lisa Vanderpump -- but to be honest, if history has taught us anything, I wouldn't be shocked if Lisa winds up being ... less likable.

I'm going to be honest here. I used to be a big Bethenny Frankel fan. She was my favie-bear on RHONY, and I was genuinely disappointed when she left the show. Then, when she got her own show, I was delighted, and hell yeah I watched. But my relationship with Bethenny wound up taking a turn for the worse.

She started complaining. A lot. And her business started growing -- like wildfire, actually. But the complaining kept coming. And coming. And coming. And coming until basically every episode was Bethenny complaining to her gaggle of assistants who won't make in a lifetime what she makes in a year about everything being "too much". It was annoying. And I jumped ship on Bethenny. (Sort of.) And no, I don't think it was a case of building people up just to knock them down. I really think Bethenny changed.

And I don't want that to happen to Lisa.

The thing that Lisa has going for her, though, is that she's always been balls-to-the-wall rich. It isn't like she's suddenly come into a pile of money and she's going to start being annoying about it. But she is more famous than ever. And as we all know, Bravolebritydom has a tendency to make people go insane.

Lisa does have that accent, though, I guess. So even if she does get annoying, it'll still be fun to listen to her.

Do you think Lisa will get too big for her britches?

I don't think Lisa will change. She's run that restaurant for years all we are going to see is how she deals with all the Staff and she won't take a bunch a bullshit from anyone in her business.

What I think is the most facinating about Lisa is that she's clearly not doing the show for the money (nor is Adrienne), but possibly as a promotional thing, and there's nothing wrong with that.

I feel exactly the same way. One of the main reasons I loved RHNY was because of Bethany.
I really was quite disappointed when she left the show and branched out. I watched it and enjoyed it but missed seeing the interaction with the other housewives. it is kinda the same way now with Lisa Vandepump Rules. She is definitely my favorite on the Beverly Hills Housewives whereas her new show is great, I miss her interaction with the other Beverly Hills hosewives. I love Lisa's show better than Bethany's .

Lisa is a fake and manipulative 60 something
year old. I don't believe she is that rich.
Go away Quennie and drop the fake accent.
