Keep on pumping! Lisa Vanderpump, who many thought was leaving "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," is officially returning for a 7th season.
"Yep, never thought I would return, but after many discussions. The pump is still in the game," she told her 1.1 million twitter followers. "Thank you to all of you. #rhobh."
She also retweeted several fan's messages and memes pertaining to her return to the Bravo franchise.
Most people, Lisa included, thought this day would never come. The owner of Pump restaurant had reportedly been wavering on returning to the drama-filled show and had almost made up her mind to quit.
Us Weekly reported that Lisa, who currently stars in a "RHOBH" spinoff, "Vanderpump Rules," was offered a seven-figure salary, but it took her a few days to sign off on the deal.
Her husband, Ken Todd, may have been the person to finally persuade her.
"Ken convinced her to do this season," a source told Us. "She needed some arm pulling."
During the last season of the reality show, Lisa often feuded with co-stars Yolanda Foster, Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson.
With Lisa's return, the show will continue to have some cast stability, despite the shakeups. Last month, Yolanda announced on social media that she was leaving the show after four seasons. She said some of decision was due to her Lyme disease diagnosis. Sources, though, said she was offered a role on the show, but it was more of a secondary role and she wasn't willing to take it.
"I am leaving what's over without denying its past importance in my life. I believe that every exit is a new entry and with that in mind I say goodbye to my @Bravotv Family as I continue to focus on a my recovery, my children and bring back the privacy within our Home," she wrote on Instagram. "I am grateful for the housewife experience and all it has thought me. I'm excited about this choice and look forward to the next chapter of my life."
