If Lisa Vanderpump truly is leaving the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after Season 9, it looks like she is going out with one hell of a final season.
Bravo released the trailer for the highly anticipated ninth season on Thursday amid rumors that Vanderpump, who has been on the show since season one, is quitting due to heated clashes with fellow housewives and long-time friends Dorit Kemsley and Kyle Richards.
The trailer shows the usual trips and glam the ladies indulge in, but it also shows a darker tone. We see the ladies get into a heated discussion about what we assume is then-Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh and then call each other out on various lies.
Vanderpump joins returning housewives Richards, Kemsley, Lisa Rinna, Erika Girardi, and Teddi Mellencamp, while Denise Richards joins the cast full-time.
Without question, the main drama of the season surrounds Vanderpump and we will likely see what led to the rumors and speculation during the offseason.
“The real story is even more crazy, epic, unbelievable, and shocking,” the trailer says in its tagline.
In the trailer, we see her clash with Teddi and Kyle with Vanderpump saying to someone off-camera: “I’m not going to say what a f—ing bitch she was.”
Now, we don’t know who Vanderpump was talking to or about but one thing is guaranteed: It is going to be one cray-cray season in Beverly Hills.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills returns to Bravo for Season 9 on February 12 at 8 pm Central Time.
