Billie Lee accused Lisa Vanderpump of trying to silence her after she alleged that there were not enough Black or LGBTQ people on Bravo — but she refuses to stay quiet.
Vanderpump Rules became one of the most talked about shows during this past week after the Bravo network made the decision to fire stars Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute following accusations by former costar Faith Stowers that they had engaged in “racist actions”. Billie Lee, 36, who was axed from the series herself after its 7th season in 2019, “applauded” Bravo for what they did while also speaking out about the hurdles that she alleges were placed in her way during her time on Vanderpump Rules.
“I personally tried to go public, and I did a little bit with regards to the reunion on season 7 and how I felt like I was gaslit and silenced,” she told HollywoodLife in an EXCLUSIVE new interview, before detailing her claims about Lisa Vanderpump, 59. “And then when I publicly talked about how there were not enough Black people or LGBTQ people on [Bravo], Lisa herself called me and told me that I needed to not talk negatively about the show, that it would hurt my career and she made my TV career, and she could take it away if I didn’t stop saying negative things about the show.”
