AceShowbiz - The current season 9 of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" sees Lisa Vanderpump being the public enemy following the infamous Puppy Gate. Now that the reunion special is coming soon, the rest of cast members of the Bravo series are said to be ready to smooth out the wrinkles of the dramatic situation only if the restaurateur does this.
"The ladies of 'RHOBH' are open to forgiving Lisa Vanderpump if she apologizes, plain and simple," a source close to the cast tells to HollywoodLife.com. "They have collectively discussed it and all feel they can move forward from this, especially Dorit [Kemsley], if she comes to the reunion, first and foremost to face them, and says she is sorry and admits her involvement in puppygate."
"They all really do want her to return and be friends again," adds the insider. "The other ladies have even opened up Kyle [Richards] to this, despite her telling friends she's done with Lisa's friendship for good."
Lisa was put in controversy after it was revealed Lucy Apple Juice, a dog that Dorit adopted from her organization Vanderpump Dogs, was given away after it bit her family members. Dorit gave the puppy to another owner who later gave her away to a shelter and it caused friction between Dorit and fellow cast mates including Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp.
When Lisa found out about it, she surprisingly decided to not make it big. However, Lisa Rinna found it suspicious as it came off as if she wanted to make herself good. Lisa denied all the allegations.
At Camille Grammer's birthday party, Lisa was cornered by others as they confronted her about the scandal. However, Lisa appeared to be not wanting to have anything to do with the scandal anymore. "I want to move on from it," the restaurateur said, before going on saying, "I've seen [the texts]… It's all clear to me…." Teddi asked her what was "clear" to her, and Lisa responded, "You were guilty by omission. You sat there when [the ladies] were asked, 'Who said bring the dog forward?' [in the Bahamas two weeks prior]. And I saw the texts! I was shocked."
At the birthday party, Teddi also told Lisa, "I know you're not going to take any ownership for your part. I've taken ownership, I told the truth, I have apologized. If you can live with yourself doing this, then go for it. It's been working for you for a long time."
Lisa responded, "OK. I'm fine with it -- [but] you don’t feel any type of guilty or remorse?" To which, Teddi said, "I don't feel any guilt with you. I feel betrayed by you." Lisa shared that she felt the same, saying, "Well, I feel betrayed by you too." Teddi seemingly was not having it as she hit back, "Oh, because I couldn't carry out your plan? Sorry."
