Lisa Vanderpump received the Legacy Award at Thursday night’s 7th annual "Real to Reel: Portrayals and Perceptions of LGBTs in Hollywood" event.
The star opened up to “Extra” about the honor as well as the news she has quit “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”
Lisa said of the award, “It’s a poignant moment for me, having been through the demise of ‘Housewives.’ Just to be here tonight is a feel-good factor.”
Opening up about her decision to leave the show, she said, “The last year was a very negative year for me. I feel like we’re moving forward. They have had their resolution. I just had a horrible time with the show and the women. It was a very sad time in my life and it wasn’t made any better. I just decided to walk away.”
Lisa has been caught up in a rift with her castmates after Dorit Kemsley adopted a puppy from Vanderpump Dogs, and later gave it away. The new family then dropped the pooch at the pound.
She also set the record straight on reports that “Vanderpump Rules” could be leaving Bravo. Lisa insisted, “The show was born on Bravo... That’s going to stay on Bravo.”
