Did Bravo TV Sabotage Lisa Vanderpump Spinoff Out Of Fear She Would Leave The Housewives


Although Real Housewife Of Beverly Hills Lisa Vanderpump shot a pilot for a spinoff show, Bravo has passed on it. Sources say it has nothing to do with the pilot not having interesting footage or Lisa's ability to bring in viewer ratings. The Housewives franchise is Bravo's soon to be billion-dollar baby, and they are protecting the best interest of it.  Allowing Lisa Vanderpump to have a spinoff would not be in their best interest.


Lisa having a spinoff would allow her to leave the housewives and possibly Bravo.  Lisa Vanderpump has become the breakout star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Her unique mix of sparkling glamour and down-to-earth style has appealed to thousands of viewers. On the show, viewers can see her hosting dinner parties, tea parties, and running her popular Beverly Hills restaurant Villa Blanca.The flamboyant British beauty has become a staple on The Housewives Of Beverly Hills and is not a replaceable character. Having a spinoff show would boost her brand and possibly lead to TV and film. This would be great for Lisa but bad for Bravo. 


Bravo is facing a similar scenario with Bethenny Frankel. According to the New York Post Bethenny is ready to walk away from reality TV. The reality star has been telling family and friends if her test talk show gets picked up in the summer. She won't be returning to reality TV.

I 'm so happy you reported another angle. I do believe this to be true. What if Lisa still doesn't return to rhobh?

I hope Lisa still shops her spinoff around to other networks. I was looking forward to watching her without the other nut jobs.

Amy said...

I'm pissed at Bravo for not green lighting Lisa's show but they'll give tacky ass Kim a spinoff. You are telling the truth they sabotage her.

Rachel said...

I agree with Amy how the hell can they give Kim who slept with a married man a show but not Lisa. I hope Lisa find another network to air her show. I know her show would be successful.

Bravo Steph said...

I agree with this post. I knew something was fishy. Giving Kim and Kandi a show but not Lisa. She's more interesting than any of them. Bravo make me sick.

Melody said...

I love Lisa and was looking forward to watching her. She has ton of celebrity friends and seems interesting. I would have watched her show.

Steve said...

Bravo didn't want to risk the potential of her blowing up and leaving the network sounds about right.

fey said...

Bravo is shady. They did the same thing to nene. All of those boring shows on air but they wouldn't pick up Lisa's. LOSERS!

Bravo never give the popular wives a show is always the boring ones who get a spinoff. No one willwatch Kim or Kandi's shows.

Sammi said...

I knew that network was scum when they gave Rachel Zoe assistant a show. His ratings are not even all that great.

Mandi said...

I was looking forward to watching Lisa and Jiggy's show. How stupid of Bravo.

Bravo = Jackass

I was shocked that Bravo didn't pick up Lisa's show. When I read it on PH I said to myself something isn't right. I must agree with your theory.

Cate said...

Great post.

Nothing Bravo does suprises me. They got rid of rhodc which had decent ratings but kept rhom and they had dam near no ratings.

Pat said...

Bravo is very messy. My jaw is still on the floor after they gave Brad aka mr rachel zoe wannabe a show. Lisa show would have set records. Dummies have no clue.

Bravo didn't even want Lisa on the show when it first started. Now she's the break out star of the show. Goes to show how much they know.

Team Vanderpump said...

I really wanted to see more of Lisa minus the other girls. Hope Lisa leaves the housewives. Some other network like oxygen or lifetime would pick up her spinoff.

i hate bravo said...

I believe this. Bravo is known for it's fraudulent ways. They invited Cedric to Lisa's party.

Dee said...

Lisa is the only reason I watch and Ardienne scary lokking self needs to leave Lisa alone.

Sarah said...

There is no RHOBH without Lisa. You're right her chracter is not easily replaceable. I agree. I think Bravo knew she would leave the rhobh.

Adrienne and Kyle are jealsous skanks. That's why Lisa wants to leave the show. Bravo should get rid of Adrienne.

Heather said...

Lisa can carry a show. She is the best wife of all franchises. So Bravo is full of shit and I believe this.

Rhoa Junkie said...

I was really excited about Lisa's show. I love Lisa wanted to learn more about her life and family.

I don't think Lisa can shop a spinoff around. She's in Bravo jail. I think they all sign a contract of some sort.
