‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’: Lisa Vanderpump says Adrienne Maloof ‘got the hoof’ from Bravo

Lisa VanderpumpThere has been a lot of dispute recently over Adrienne Maloof leaving “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” as she has said time and time again that she left the show of her own accord, while other sources close to the show claim that she was fired form the hit Bravo series.  So what really happened?

According to US Weekly, Maloof’s former co-star Lisa Vanderpump has spoken up on the subject of Adrienne’s departure from the series, saying that she didn’t leave the series, but was given the “hoof”.  She said: “I think you have to understand that when you sign up for something, it’s a job, you know?  The reunion is where you go and everything comes to fruition and you hash it out. And viewers want that the same way they want us to blog. . . So yeah, she got the hoof! She says she walked away, but she didn’t. She got the big Maloof hoof! And you can quote me on that!”

Maloof wasn’t the only one that Vanderpump clashed with on this past season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”, she also had a few run ins with her former best friend, Kyle Richards.  What was Lisa’s problem with Kyle?  Well she felt that there were too many times where Kyle should have stood up and defended Lisa and she just wasn’t there for her.  She said: “I’ve been through the reunion last year and I was ganged up on and I had a huge amount of support from the audience, and I really felt this time I wasn’t going to take it lying down. I was going to stand up and say, ‘Hey, this is what’s going on,’ and I felt the way the whole thing played out this season — you saw it — the loyalties were divided. And I’m not like that. You’ve got to pick one side of the fence. You sit on the fence too long, you get splinters in your ass!”

The one person we’ve seen Lisa get very close to during season 3 of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” was Brandi Glanville, which is really interesting because during season 2 Brandi looked as if she was going to be brought onto the series to be Lisa’s nemesis, but with both Brandi and Lisa being straight shooters a friendship quickly developed between them.

You can catch Lisa every week on the new season of “Dancing With The Stars” 16 where she will be battling the other celebrities to take home the coveted mirror-ball trophy.
