Lisa Vanderpump has reportedly had it with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, while Andy Cohen is desperate to retain her, and is pulling out all the stops.
He’s even using Lance Bass (yes, you read that correctly) as a secret weapon.
Under the guise of a casual dinner date, he and Lance put the screws to Lisa at her Beverly Hills restaurant PUMP over the weekend, TMZ reports.
Their goal? To make sure when you watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online, the sassy Brit will be a cast member next season and beyond.
Lisa, whose other Bravo show Vanderpump Rules has become a sleeper hit, has not re-upped her contract for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
She felt extremely bullied by Brandi Glanville, Kyle Richards and the other women last season and is fed up with the show that made her a star.
Cohen, who executive produces the show, is extremely nervous about losing Vanderpump and is going all out to get her to re-up for 2015.
It’s unclear if he was successful, but he obviously brought along Lance to dinner because he knows Lisa and Lance are very good friends.
That can’t hurt. But will it be enough? Should it be? Tell us:
