Her co-stars were stunned but not totally shocked by the story.
Six months after Mauricio Umansky's explosive Agency party, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Erika Jayne, Dorit Kemsley, Teddi Mellencamp and Denise Richards met up to catch up on life after filming. Noticeably absent from the group were Camille Grammer (if you watched the finale, you know why) and LVP (if you watched the season, you know why).
Almost immediately, Vanderpump came up. During a conversation about her Cocktail Garden opening in Las Vegas, the ladies mocked the fact that she wore a crown and got carried into the venue. "She needs the worship," Dorit noted, as Kyle added, "That's why she wears the crown." They also wondered why Camille was there. Then cameras flashed to a conversation Camille had had with LVP shortly after the Agency party brawl, telling Lisa that she had become the group's new victim.
"We go to dinner, and they all came at me, calling me a hypocrite after I lost Scott and my house burned down," Camille was seen telling LVP. "I felt the way you felt, thinking, don't kick a dog when it's down! As soon as you left, the target was right here!"
"That's why you should be wearing the crown, and you should have the target on your back," Lisa replied with a chuckle. "Oh, my God. I'm sorry. But after all the bullshit from the women, I've immersed myself in this project at Caesars."
When Camille brought up Lisa's fallout with Kyle, Lisa thanked her for having her back.
"Oh, you are so welcome," Camille replied.
Back at the ladies' lunch, Rinna announced she had run into Vanderpump inside a parking garage on Bedford.
"I was waiting for my car, and I heard this, 'Ohhh, God!'" Rinna explained, breaking out her best English accent. "I just didn't say anything! Like, I just sat there and looked at her. So she goes to her her car, and she's fumbling in her purse for money. Her nails are wet, and so she's fumbling, and all of a sudden, I turn around and I go, 'Do you need some money?'"
"She goes, 'No! And if I did, I wouldn't take yours!'" Rinna said. "Swear to God. And that was it."
The women were stunned but not totally shocked. And Erika just wanted to know, "Why does she have wet nails in 2019, girl? Get some gels!"
Kyle then felt compelled to tell the girls about her run-in with LVP, which she spoke about publicly back in May. The two crossed paths at the Chanel counter in Neiman Marcus.
Kyle said she said hello first and that Lisa was "really shocked" to look up and see who it was. "I said, I want you to know that I'm very sorry about how everything has turned out and everything that's happened between us. I really don't think it needed to be this way at all.' And she said, 'Well, you called me a liar.' And I said, 'No, I didn't call you a liar. Those are your words.'"
Kyle told the women she felt "sad" because she's come to realize that nothing will ever change.
"While I have great empathy for what she's gone through, I do, but it also doesn't excuse behavior," Kyle explained. "And also, this is not behavior because she was going through a hard time. It's stuff that she's already been doing since I've known her."
"I don't see myself killing myself to fix things if she's gonna make it hard for me. I can't. I can't do it anymore," she added. "I felt lighter just because I had a conversion, so to have that moment away from everything, I felt better, but yet I also felt like (sighs) I'm good. I'm good."
In hindsight, Kyle said she felt she was "more invested" in her friendship with Lisa than Lisa was.
"I don't have any enemies, and I don't wanna feel like I have an enemy," Kyle said. "I would hope that even she doesn't consider it that, but I just don't like to have bad feelings with someone that I care about and that I had such a good friendship with."
The only time we saw LVP during the finale was at the very end, after the ladies' catch-up lunch. Cameras captured her sipping tea at home with her dogs.
"Opening a new restaurant and dealing with personal feelings and then this complete f--k up with all my friends, it's been a lot to actually deal with," she told the camera. "But I feel I'm in a different place now. Things are turning around. Out with the old, and in with the new."
