Lisa Vanderpump

On Brink of Quitting 'Real Housewives'

Andy Cohen to the Rescue

5/27/2014 10:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Lisa Vanderpump Quitting Real Housewives of Beverly HillsLisa Vanderpump has had it with "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" -- but executive producer Andy Cohen is fighting tooth and nail to keep her ... using Lance Bass as his secret weapon.

Sources close to production tell TMZ, Andy and Lance double teamed Lisa at her Beverly Hills restaurant PUMP over the weekend in a last ditch effort to get her to come back for the next season of RHOBH ... disguising their attack as a casual dinner date.

We're told Lisa -- who's already killing it on Bravo with her other show "Vanderpump Rules" -- has not re-upped her RHOBH contract and has told Andy she's fed up with the show ... specifically because she felt extremely bullied by the other women last season. See below.



According to sources, Cohen is extremely nervous about losing Vanderpump -- a big player on RHOBH -- and spent most of their dinner trying to convince her to stay ... it's unclear if Lisa has changed her mind. We're told Andy used Lance because he knows Lisa and Lance are good friends.

We're told the other housewives have also not signed on for the next season yet -- but clearly Andy is already playing favorites.

Lisa is the Queen of RHOBH, the other women are simply her servants who are jealous of her Ruling Status. Lisa is the only one with grace and class. Brandi' and Kim are trash who's houses are worse than most Americans... This is suppose to be about Glamour not trash people and houses! Viva Lisa! Pay her millions and kick the other's out... call it "the only real glamourous housewife of Beverly Hills" That is fierce and fabulous

Fifteen years ago I was in a WEHO A.A. meeting.

Handsome blonde dude's the main speaker.

Lots of Lance Bass in him.

I'm assuming the dude's straight -

That I'm not the ONLY straight guy in the room.

So he goes I'm from a wealthy family (you could tell).

"Four years ago I married into an equally-wealthy family - the girl's family owns half of Texas, etc."

"She was a Home-Coming Queen, former Byatch_USA Contestant, etc."

But he'd always longed for men.

So he began secretly going to WEHO bars.

Where he met and fell in love with an equally-good-looking man.

So he has to go home at some point and cop.

Telling his wife he's outta there.

See now that's the kinda thing Lance could do on Bravo.

It was riveting to hear about it 15 years ago.

And I never forgot how awful a situation the guy was in - he wants men -

Has everything but wants a man.

Andy Cohen doesn't need to manufacture drama with stuff I write -

It's inherent in the material.

Yet Andy's rich and I'm home drinking warm tap H2O.

Meaning I can't be very smart.

Thanks for listening now that you're sorry you did.

If you weren't trained by Frantisek Daniel at either Columbia or USC?

Or in Prague like Frank trained/developed Milos Forman?!

-You basically don't know how to write.

I do but I don't know how to interview/tie my shoes.

She's mad bc the girls figured her out. Everything they said was true and that can't be good for business. She is a master manipulator. It took a while but Brandy and Kyle figured her out. I was impressed by them! By Lisa too for that matter! She's the queen for sure!

The show needs her SHE doesn't need them. This also may be a ploy from both parties to stir the pot before filming begins. Season 5 is 6 months away and they need to keep people interested. Lisa may also be dragging her feet in order to get more money. I think Lisa should come on her terms. "One Million Dollars" and "No Brandi"
