Lisa Vanderpump has spent seven seasons in the thick of all the drama on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, so she knows a thing or two about how best to navigate all the murky territory that comes along with it. This season, the 90210 crew welcomed two new pals to the group, Eden Sassoon and Dorit Kemsley, and, well, Lisa has some thoughts about their rookie seasons.
First up, Lisa offered up her performance review of Eden's role in the never-ending Lisa Rinna-Kim Richards drama, in which the soap star denied and then later owned up to comments she made about Kim's sobriety to Eden. "Well Eden was very much on the periphery really as a friend of the Housewives, and then suddenly she became immersed right in the middle of a kind of firestorm so to speak," Lisa said of the friend. "I don't think Rinna really thought that Eden would repeat it, so therefore it wouldn't have come to light until the reunion. And the fact that Eden repeated it then kicked everything off."
As for her longtime pal, Dorit, Lisa admits that perhaps the transition has been slightly more difficult. Still, she couldn't help but include a little sassy message for the newbies. "Well I think it might be overwhelming right at the beginning," she said of the Wife. "But I also think it's accumulative. I don't think you have that huge following until you've been on a show quite a few years, so I think you can adapt to it slowly. But you know I think everybody they should be thankful to join a reality show that's a hit reality show is a luxury... it's a luxury, really, for some of these new girls to come in and the show's a hit show."
See where the drama will take this crew next, every Tuesday at 9/8c. Check out a preview, below.
