LISA Vanderpump and her former Real Housewives co-star Kyle Richards used to be besties.
But now Lisa is doubting whether the two were ever even real friends.
And not even reality TV event BravoCon could get the broken up buds back together.
Lisa told Us Weekly: “It’s just when, if it’s a friendship, then you know, I wouldn’t experience what I experienced the year before. If it was a real friendship.”
The old pals parted ways after a dispute over the infamous Season 9 “Puppygate” scandal, which saw Kyle accuse Lisa of lying about a dog adoption gone wrong.
Since their falling out, there have been multiple restaurant run-ins and shopping sightings for the two – but they’ve been civil at best.
The 50-year-old said at an OG Housewives panel: “I’ve seen her twice in Neiman Marcus, and at a restaurant last week.
“I said to the hostess, ‘Are you kidding me?’ Then we said, ‘Hello.’”
Lisa, however, described the brief interaction as “…perfect for me.”
“I’ve seen her twice in Neiman Marcus, and at a restaurant last week…I said to the hostess, ‘Are you kidding me?’ Then we said, ‘Hello.’
She added that luckily for her, she actually didn’t see any of her former RHOBH cast members during BravoCon.
The 59-year-old restaurateur explained: “…Coming here, that feel-good factor, it was fine. But no, Bravo probably arranged it so I didn’t have to. But I don’t know. You’d have to ask them.”
Kyle told People Magazine Lisa made sure to exit a Watch What Happens Live taping before she got on stage.
“Lisa did not want to bump into me.
“She left the stage last night before we got on.”
Lisa denied this saying Kyle is always trying to take a jab at her.
She added: “How could I run away from her? I’m with Vanderpump Rules. Bravo knows what they’re doing.
“They know where to schedule us and tells us where we’re going. So don’t flatter yourself, sweetie!”
I don’t think anyone would be upset. Her choice.
But RHOBH’s Teddi Melancamp told Us Weekly she wouldn’t have avoided her had the two seen each other at the convention.
And Dorit Kemsley, who was at the center of the “Puppygate” incident, added Lisa would be welcomed to return to the series.
She told People: “I don’t think anyone would be upset. Her choice.”
And Dorit Kemsley, who was at the center of the “Puppygate” incident, added that the future of their friendship depends on both sides.
When asked at a panel if any of the cast keeps in touch with Lisa, Dorit answered: “Does she still keep in contact with us is the question.”
