Exclusive: RHOBH Kyle Richards Threatens Lisa Vanderpump

Kyle Richards vs Lisa VanderpumpTVFishbowl.com has exclusively learned frenemies, Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards are enthralled in a bitter housewives showdown. Kyle Richards has issued a firm ultimatum to the show’s producers — Fire Lisa or I will not return for another season…I will quit the show, a sourced revealed to TVFishbowl.

Kyle told the network ” if you want me on the show then Lisa must get the axe, I can no longer work with her,” said the source close to the situation.

Allegedly, The RHOBH co-stars are not friends but have remained cordial in the public. Recently their feud has hit a feverish pitch and the gloves are off,  Kyle is out for blood. This is fresh off the heels of our report that Bravo has plans to fire Kim. In addition to our exclusive regarding Kim’s sobriety.

“Kyle is very jealous that Lisa is part of a successful spin-off [Vanderpump Rules] and was disappointed when Bravo passed on her spin-off with her hubby, Mauricio Umansky, the source continued.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ratings this season have been less than stellar in comparison to previous seasons. The network has been scrambling to find ways to increase ratings. Firing Lisa, the most popular housewife, would be a bad business decision.  Bravo has made a significant financial investment in the “Lisa Vanderpump brand.”  From a strategic business standpoint, it’s logical the network supports their top performer who yields return on investment (ROI).

RHOBHUnfortunately for Kyle, the network does not share her “self perceived” greatness and she is green with envy that Lisa is adored by Bravo and the fans. Kyle thinks that if Lisa is off the show, she’ll naturally step into the role of “fan favorite.”  Kyle may have overplayed her hand as producers are purportedly considering replacing both Kim and Kyle. The producers feel Kyle and Kim are replaceable, according to those close to the situation.

IntraPost Survey: Which one best describes Kyle’s  “self perceived” greatness (sound off in the comments)

  1. Delusions of grandeur
  2. Wishful thinking
  3. Plain stupid
  4. All of the above

Supposedly, jealously and Bravo spin-off’s are at the root of the issue. Kyle and Mauricio filmed a spin-off that was not chosen due to boring content and lack of humor. Alternatively, the network selected Vanderpump Rules instead, the source explained. 

While on the topic of Vanderpump Rules, the show has been renewed for a third season.  Jax Taylor, star of VPR tweeted the news this week.

          Why does that not surprise me!! LOL!!!

    • SpotOn_SpotOff

      Watch the nasty stories on ROL multiply by tens if Kyle gets the boot in favor of Lisa!!

  • twifan2

    So NOW Kyle is using Lisa as an excuse to get off the show & not her sister?!
    KOOL! Hope your store brings in lots of $$$ to help ‘maintain’ DimKim. :)

    • julyol1972

      So not only is Lisa the “mean girl” this season? Now she’ll be the scapegoat for the reason Kyle “left” the show rather being fired by the producers? Sounds like her usual M.O. of blame everyone else!

      • twifan2

        SNOOKEMS!!! :)
        Guess Kyle doesn’t want people to think that she wasn’t fired. ;)

        • julyol1972

          She doesn’t! But trying to save face is making her look like an idiot as she once again pulls Lisa into her mess!

          • twifan2

            JULY! :)
            Have you heard that STUPID comment Brandtamp made about wishing she had been molested as a child?!
            Whose more of a moron now-Vyle or Brandi?!

            • julyol1972

              Kyle is a selfish narcissist, but Brandi is just stupid. What’s worse is that she’s stupid with a forum that reaches millions, which is dangerous in it self. She needs to be gone.

      • twifan2

        JULY!!! Now where you go off to? :’(

        • julyol1972

          Hi honey! I’ve been checking out the other stories on the site :)

          • twifan2

            Hope they have a story about Brandtamp’s newest stupidity! :o

            • noarguingwithstupid

              They do. I thought that’s where you were going!!!!

              • twifan2

                I am-over there now.
                Sorry for the confusion! o.0

      • Dr Seuss

        Bingo! Kyle is a self serving bitch that will use any and every excuse in the book to blame others but herself. That’s why she only has two friends….Faye Resnick and Kris Jenner…that speaks volumes!!!!

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Let her go, please, please LET HER GO!!!!!!

  • karen

      I just followed you!

  • Babson_Chick

    Re. Jax – does that mean they got rid of Kristen? After the last show of VR I clearly see that Jax is a “little girly drama queen douchebag” (probably left a few descripts. out)

  • samantha

    Won’t miss her at all, long overdue. Get rid of Kyle, Kim, Brandi and Carleton. Sheesh bring back Camille and get some new wealthy, classy, women.

  • That Lady

    They need to get rid of her like a bad case of LICE! All the bugs that think they are more worthy then the others need to find a new ROACH MOTEL!

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      LOLOL. You are spot on, That!

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    In response to the poll: D (all of the above).

    Nothing would make me happier to see Vyle Bitchards off the show and she can take her mumbling medicated/alcoholic sister with her. And they can lead Brandi away on a leash wearing a muzzle because that bitch needs one!

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    Exactly! So sick of those pointing fingers a-holes!

  • yenta1957

    D…all of the above.

    Who the freak does Kyle think she is…to give her employer an ultimatum ? LOL….didn’t always care for everyone I worked w/ over the yrs…but that’s life….you learn to adjust + get the job done.
    And..my job was much more intense than playing in front of tv cameras.

    I hope she + her sister are kicked to the curb.

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      Thank you! Like anyone would be upset by her absence!

  • Michelle Deveraux

    I don’t believe this story. Kyle is not dumb she would not lobby to have Lisa fired because she knows it will not happen. She instead is befriending Joyce and Brandi in order to stay on the show if her sister leaves.

  • Nay

    Bye Bye Kyle, I just love Lisa, she is a class act!

  • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

    It just breaks my heart that Bravo may be seriously thinking about letting Kyle and Kim flap in the wind. (uh, no. . .)
    Can you see the big ole crocodile tears streaming down my face? (uh, Yes. . . I mean no. . .)
    What will we do without Kyle and Kim to lovingly sneer at so often. . .I guess that would be such a terrible thing to do to take away that all too meaningful snarking time with Kyle and Kim as the directed focal point of the sneer action. . . Bummehr!
    Boo Hoo Hoo

  • DLister

    As Kyle likes to say in such a juvenile manner, she is totally “jelly” of Lisa. Lisa has a natural charisma that Kyle can never have. Lisa is far more interesting; Kyle has nothing at all that interests me, other than I do like some of her flowing, patterned clothes.

  • twifan2

    Well, looks like Kyle’s been upped AGAIN!
    She got overshadowed by Brandi’s diarrhea mouth! :D

    • WestCoastFeed

      Hi, twi. RHOBH began so nicely. Really rich housewives with good taste and good manners living in lavish homes. It was a treat for the eyes. And now look what Bravo has done with it. It should just cancel the whole thing. Dump them all.

      • twifan2

        Hi Hi WCF! :)
        I so agree with you about the start of RHoBH! It was like watching those old musical movies-glamor, fantasy! :)
        Now, there’s Brandtamp. DimKim, Vyle,… the list goes on. :(

        • WestCoastFeed

          In NJ news–Juicy’s lawyers are petitioning to get his trial separate from Teresa’s. If he succeeds he -plans on falling on his sword and taking the blame for everything and will testify that he forged everything and Tre had no knowledge of what he was up to.

          • twifan2

            OMG!? So?, He dressed up as Tre when ‘she’ was taped in the banks to ‘sign’ papers? And signed before the bank ppl?

            THAT WAS SOME MAKE-UP JOB! :)

            • WestCoastFeed

              His lawyer is claiming that the counts from 2001 to 2005 are beyond the statute of limitations and should be disallowed. That would get Tre off the hook for some of the counts.

              • twifan2

                No, no, no! Don’t his lawyers KNOW Fed prosecutors have done THEIR work?! They’re not just putting counts out there that are ‘beyond the statue of limitations’.

                • WestCoastFeed
                  • twifan2

                    TY, WCF.
                    I’ll go look.

                  • twifan2

                    uuummm, can’t see the Feds letting Juicy getting his ‘demands’!
                    But I do agree, it’s going to be a doosy of a trial(s).smh

                    • WestCoastFeed

                      I think we now know why ROL has just run 3 stories about Juicy’s cheating and Tre’s denial. All going to paint her as the innocent little woman who has been done wrong. PR at work.

                    • noarguingwithstupid

                      A lot of bunk!!!!

                    • twifan2

                      And they ‘falling’ for it.

                      Wonder how much those sites are getting paid?! ;)

                    • noarguingwithstupid

                      I think its hilarious that Juicy has any “demands”!!! I demand they both go to prison ASAP!!!!!!

          • twifan2

            But does that mean, the Fed prosecutors can now go after Tre and really indict her? Throw the indictments-say 30 of them at her?

      • noarguingwithstupid

        My very first post was : “Get rid of them all!!!!”

        • WestCoastFeed

          Hi, Naws, I won’t be watching BH again. I tried those few episodes out of curiosity. But they haven’t held my interest.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Did you catch “unlocking Sherlock” on PBS the other night? It was very good, of course.

            • WestCoastFeed

              Yes, and I was dismayed to see that I missed a lot of the old Sherlock episodes. I have to hope that they will be rerun.

              • twifan2

                PBS sometimes does during their Pledge Drive.

                • noarguingwithstupid

                  Do you think Brandi is going to be fired?

                  • twifan2

                    Nope. No. Too much free publicity for her, the Bravo.
                    It’s all about $$$!

                    • noarguingwithstupid

                      But, but, MOLESTATION is very, very bad and what she said was horrible. They have fired housewives for less!!!

                    • twifan2

                      BUT Brandtamp does have her 2nd amendment right. Hate to say it, but she does.
                      I keep telling you, “IT’S all about the $$$!”

                    • noarguingwithstupid

                      But with TV it’s a little different. If peeps really want to make a difference, they contact the advertisers on the show–that makes a huge impact!!

                  Now you know how I have to constantly keep up with you!!!!

    i don’t believe the story. every year they say these types of things.
    either way, kyle will never quit. empty threat, even the( if kim goes, i go threat too)
    but i can see she must be seething since she didn’t get her own show. imo

      So true. BUT with Brandtamp’s newest feet-in-mouth comment, Vyle has been relegated to the back-row.
      Vyle must be seething-again. :)

    LMBO, if Bravo calls Kyle’s bluff.
    I don’t believe for a second she would give up the show.

  • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

    It’s amazing that this woman would actually think…no feel that she has enough draw to challenge the assholes of Bravo to cut loose another character. And LV is one HW that consistently demonstrates that she is successful on numerous different echelons of the business world (on Bravo, as a restaurateur on at least 2 different continents and as a woman who attempted the grueling Dancing WTS).
    Kyle (hopefully along with Kim R) is surely feeling the wind of that door that just slammed her rear when it was exposed as she haltingly cross crawled inch by inch across the doors threshold.

    BYE BYE Kyle and Kim. Don’t let the door hit you where the $$$$ $$$$ $$$$$ YOU. I am so tired of them. Kim is pathetic and Kyle thinks the show will sink without her. I am sure we could run down to the beach and just grab someone who would be more interesting that Kim, Kyle and Joyce.
