Vanderpump, 53, revealed she is still in shock about costar Brandi Glanville attacking her on and off camera, whilst also having concerns about the show’s direction.
Fans appear to have her back too with a new petition demanding out of control Glanville be booted off the series.
Asked if she wants to stay, Lisa admitted: “I don’t know right now I have to be honest. It is a tough season for me. I have got a lot going on. If it becomes about a bitch fest then it is not something I signed up for; but if it becomes about documenting my life, which is the show I signed up for and having fun and supporting women that is something I want to do.
“But the way the show was in the end, the last episodes, that is not something I would care to repeat.”
Bravo has not spoken to her about the petition or fans’ fury at Glanville.
Neither have they confirmed details on new deals, but is unthinkable for fans that show stalwart Vanderpump – who has appeared in all 120 episodes – would not be on screen.
As we reported, newcomers Giraud and Carlton Gebbia could be out too, but Lisa revealed no decisions have been made: “I am not signed on and I don’t know whether I am staying and don’t think any of us do right now.
“Everyone wants to stay, but I don’t know. I have a lot to consider I am opening a new business, I have Vanderpump Rules and let’s see if they both get picked up and let Bravo make the decision and offer and see where we go from there.”
Fans saw Lisa break down on screen after getting embroiled in a cat fight during a trip to Puerto Rico.
The huge fight stemmed from Glanville accusing Vanderpump of being a bad friend to Kyle Richards.
Glanville told Kyle, Vanderpump had told her to bring copies of the tabloids that had stories about her husband’s cheating rumors on another trip.
It led to a row between Lisa, husband Ken Todd, Kyle and sister Kim.
“I just want to know the truth,” Kyle screamed, while Kim went after Todd barking: “I’m tired of your God—- mouth! You’re a big, stubborn old man. Shut up!”
“You know the truth, you know the truth,” Todd said, gesturing at Richards and her husband, while escorting his visibly shaken wife out of the restaurant. “We’re out of here!”
Sobbing Vanderpump insisted on screen: “I’ve gone above and beyond to defend her,.. “I have defended Brandi when sometimes her actions have been indefensible … then the underdog bites you.”
Vanderpump spoke to Radar when she attended pal Joyce’s Queen of the Universe philanthropic pageant, to benefit UNESCO Education for Children in Need Foundation on Sunday night in Los Angeles.
She was joined by Kyle and N’sync star Lance Bass at the pageant run by former Miss Puerto Rice & Miss Universe Runner-Up Giraud, who picks out global models based on marital status, motherhood, sexual orientation or other factors that might inhibit their participation in other pageants of this caliber
Vanderpump pointed the finger firmly at Glanville for her TV battles and unease over the future of the show.
She confirmed: “I didn’t like the fact that just because Brandi says it, doesn’t mean it is true. She pulls things out of her butt and said things like ‘Oh she is bankrupt’. I have never filed bankruptcy.
“No I didn’t. That hurt my business and my integrity. Not that there is anything wrong with being bankrupt.
“She said I lied about where you lived – and that I was living in a house in Calabasas. No I wasn’t. There is nothing wrong with Calabasas but I didn’t live there. You cannot makes things up and it went on. I lost respect for her.
“She is a loose cannon. in friendship you cannot think there are no ramifications, but there are consequences and you have to take responsibility for what you say.”
The British restaurateur insisted that the squabbles are NOT STAGED for ratings, with the entire series being accurately depicted.
She said, “I don’t think there has ever been pressure on us to create drama. I have been one of the original Housewives and our pay goes up according to how many years you have stayed on.”
Asked if cast members are asked by producers to stir it up for pay rises, Vanderpump responded: “I don’t think they hold it like a carrot in front of a donkey otherwise that would open the doors to everything. I think Bravo keep on who the audience wants to see.”
She also said her emotions are real.
“I don’t think I deal with it any differently off camera to on. I left Puerto Rico in the middle of the night in tears and I have done 120 episodes and I am a strong woman but when you have four against one, it is too much. I did leave in tears.
“I cried tears I am not someone who breaks down and is crying through every interview that is not me.
“But this season it is too much. But when they all get together. I don’t like it and I don’t support it, I wouldn’t let my children do it and I wouldn’t do it.”
