There are lots of stories about Lisa Vanderpump floating around today. One site says LVP will not be returning to RHOBH next season. There was no confirmation of that, it is just sort of common sense since she is refusing to film with the cast and hasn’t filmed with them for several weeks now. We are probably only going to see her filming with Ken or a dog for most of the upcoming season. They have pushed the debut date to “early January.” The season is either going to be great without her, or a clusterfuck. I expect to be pleasantly surprised by how much we like the upcoming season where the rest of the cast seems happy. I feel like Dorit will be scarce this season too. I’ve completely forgotten about her every time I do a check in on their IGs. Everyone except for Denise, Camille and LVP are heading back from their whirlwind tour of France today. I’m so excited to see that trip! They all seem so happy.
The other story of the day is that LVP is opening a cocktail garden at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. According to the Daily Mail exclusive:
Vanderpump Cocktail Garden will combine the sexy atmosphere of our other establishments injected with the Vegas energy that brings millions of guests who visit year after year,’ the entrepreneur said. It will feature an indoor patio that combines ‘natural elements with industrial touches’ that will transport guests to an al fresco-style garden with towering trees and romantic lighting. Lisa’s signature color, pink, will be featured inside the cocktail garden and contrast with ‘masculine details’ in the decor. The lounge area will feature booths as well as a full bar that focuses on craft cocktails, Vanderpump branded Sangria and Rosé as well as a carefully selected wine list. The menu will consist of small bites that are perfect to pair with the drinks and share with friends during a night out.
Am I the one that wonders who is financing all of this? Especially since LVP may be losing her Bravo checks very soon. She’s been trying to sell Villa Blanca for years and the lawsuits have really hit them in the pocketbook.
So, Vegas people, do you expect Vanderpump Cocktail Garden to be the next big thing? Do you think RHOBH will be better without LVP?
