Home » Lisa Vanderpump Reacts to Mary Cosby’s Controversial Marriage and Compares RHOSLC to Jerry Springer
Lisa Vanderpump was taken aback after learning that the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City cast member Mary Cosby is married to her step-grandfather.
During a recent podcast appearance, the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and current star of Vanderpump Rules reacted to the unconventional marriage and explained why she didn’t tune into RHOBH season 10 before detailing her tagline drama and weighing in on the way she’s been portrayed by Bravo.
“Can you imagine knowing that the man you’re sleeping with used to shag your grandmother?” Lisa wondered during a November 24 appearance on the Comments by Bravo podcast. “I don’t want anything near me that’s been inside my grandmother’s vagina. I am not interested.”
“I’ve gotta watch [The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City],” she continued. “[But] it sounds more like [The Jerry Springer Show] than the Housewives.”
In addition to not watching the RHOSLC, Lisa skipped the 10th season of RHOBH.
“I made a distinct effort to not watch [The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills]. I didn’t want to have an opinion about it and I didn’t want to be emotionally invested in something I had no control over,” Lisa explained. “It was easier and less painful for me just to step away from it.”
Although Lisa wasn’t watching when Brandi Glanville accused Denise Richards of sleeping with her, she confirmed she heard plenty about the drama on social media.
“From what I gathered, [Denise] just didn’t want to be open with what actually transpired. But that’s what she should have said to them,” Lisa noted. “She should have said, ‘What I do has nothing to do with you so bugger off.’”
Looking back at her time on RHOBH, Lisa said Bravo nearly shot down her season seven tagline.
“My season seven tag line was, ‘I’m passionate about dogs just not crazy about b***hes.’ And they said, ‘You can’t say that. We said we would never have the word b***h in a tagline.’ And I said, ‘Why? I’m talking about the dogs. I’m not talking about the women.’ And they were like, ‘Yeah.’ And so I kind of refused to say any other line,” she admitted.
Because Lisa’s relationships with her castmates were extremely strained throughout her final seasons on the show, she nearly turned down an appearance in Lady Gaga‘s music video for “G.U.Y.” because she didn’t want to be in the same room as her co-stars.
While the singer called her directly to request she make a cameo, Lisa first told her she did not want to be around them.
“And she said, ‘Don’t worry, I’m going to get you your own car, you can come up there, you just have to film with them, but you’re going to be separated in your own dressing room, your own car,’ and I said, ‘That’s going to make it even worse,’” Lisa revealed. “And she said, ‘Listen, I really want you to be in it and Giggy can come as well.’ And when she said that, I was like, ‘Okay, I’ll go for it.’”
Also during the podcast, Lisa said that when it comes to the way she’s been portrayed by Bravo over the past several years, she feels her true personality came through during her time on the RHOBH.
“I think people always saw me as a woman that worked. They like to show the whole glossy part of life and obviously, that’s more exciting than me being at home ironing Ken’s underpants. [But] I think that people saw that I didn’t take myself too seriously,” she shared.
