The rumor mill is running wild with the idea of Lisa Vanderpump getting a new show on a network that isn’t Bravo, but is there any truth to the rumors?
Lisa Vanderpump was on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for nine seasons before departing and had Vanderpump Rules for eight seasons as well. She’s definitely done with Real Housewives, but with each passing day it seems less likely Vanderpump Rules will be returning. It appears that Lisa might have jumped ship to the E! network for her newest endeavor.
The website Staff Me Up specializes in television and film jobs and there is an active listing on there for a show titled Overserved with Lisa Vanderpump filmed in 2020. There are two production members that both work for Evolution Media on the E! channel. Evolution produces The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, The Real Housewives of Orange County, Vanderpump Rules, and Botched.
It sounds like the show is simply about famous guests coming in to dine with Lisa Vanderpump at her restaurants. It isn’t clear if they will be at SUR, the Vanderpump Cocktail Garden, or where, but Villa Blanca never re-opened after the pandemic hit. Many viewers miss watching Lisa in her natural habitat, aka surrounded by PumpTini’s and goat cheese balls, so this might just fit the bill!
After Jax Taylor and Kristen Doute were fired, they both insinuated the show would be back on a different channel. A lot of people guessed E! since Bravo and E! have been doing a lot of cross-promoting lately and are both owned by NBC Universal. There is also a huge gap in programming now that Keeping Up with the Kardashians has jumped to streaming services, which Jax thought he could fill for whatever reason.
Would you tune in to watch Lisa on a new channel? It sounds promising enough that we might be able to spend an hour away from the Bravo-verse.
The Real Housewives of Orange County is on Wednesdays at 9 PM ET on Bravo.
