Brandi shades her former friend amid rumors she refuses to film with the cast: "It might be time to focus on 'Vanderpump Rules.'"
TooFab caught up with the former Housewife Tuesday night on the red carpet at WEtv's "Real Love: Relationship Reality TV's Past, Present & Future" event in L.A., where she told us how she really feels about her former friend's run on the Bravo franchise.
"If you look at the cast, it's getting younger, like with Teddi [Mellencamp-Arroyave] and Dorit [Kemsley] and Denise [Richards], who I love. It's a younger group," Brandi said. "They're jumping off cliffs in bikinis! And I don't see Lisa Vanderpump ever doing that, so I feel like maybe it's time for a little break."
"I don't think she'll ever quit, but it might be time to focus on 'Vanderpump Rules,'" she added. "And I'm sure she's gonna have a show with TomTom, right? We all need to know when to leave the party. I mean, I don't. I generally stay way too long, and it goes sideways, but I always say, 'Know when to leave the party.'"
Brandi also said she unapologetically keeps up with "RHOBH," even though she left the series after Season 5, and she doesn't believe any former 'Wife when they say they don't also indulge.
"I watch all the 'Housewives' franchises," she told us. "I'm friends with a lot of the girls from the other cities. I feel like it's like not checking your ex-boyfriend's Instagram -- of course you're gonna check it! You're gonna watch it. Most of the girls that used to be on -- they all watch it, but they won't admit it. I'm just like, 'Yeah, I watch it. It is what it is.'"
So what does Lisa think about some of her current castmates' not-so-subtle jabs and all the speculation that she's leaving the show?
"If I was gonna leave, I would say that," she told TooFab last month. "I've been on the show -- well, it's been eight years since we started, and we're on our ninth season. But this year was very challenging for me, emotionally. And doing 'Vanderpump Rules,' opening TomTom, being Editor-in-Chief of Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine -- I felt emotionally vulnerable."
"I was trying to do everything I can with the Vanderpump Dogs rescue center, trying to organize this [gala]. We were going to Congress and being political and -- it was so much," she continued. "I also have four restaurants, so maybe I wasn't as prepared as I should have been, but I am in the show, absolutely. It's just I don't make it all the way through."

TooFab also got to chat with Sherri Shepherd, who told us an insane story about what she did when she got stood up by a "very famous comic" as well as how she feels about Kevin Hart stepping down as Oscars host. Rachel Lindsay and Dr. Ish Major also shared their thoughts on that, and Caitlyn Jenner revealed she still watches "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."
