The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion is set to film on Wednesday and Lisa Vanderpump exclusively told DailyMailTV she’s not going.
Instead, the 58-year-old restaurant mogul was spotted out with her beloved rescue dog Puffy getting in some retail therapy in Los Angeles.
Just a day prior, Lisa made a bombshell announcement in the same interview that she was quitting the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after nine seasons.
Not skipping a beat: After her bombshell announcement to DailyMailTV that she was quitting RHOBH and skipping the season nine reunion, Lisa Vanderpump was spotted Wednesday doing some shopping in Beverly Hills
Seen cradling her rescue pup, the Vanderpump Rules maven stepped out looking as glamorous as ever in an eternally chic all-black look.
The British beauty rocked a long black skirt and a tight fitting black sweater that she brought together with a black and gold belt.
To match the color scheme, Lisa opted for a stunning pair of T-strap pumps in black and gold.
She accessorized with a thick gold chain and a glamorous pair of oversized sunglasses with her signature pop of pink lip gloss.

Matching her lip tone, Puffy, was dressed in a pink sweatsuit.
The Bravo star carried a large patent leather tote and a massive navy shopping bag that she picked up on her shopping trip to the famed Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.
Lisa seemed totally unperturbed by the fact that she rocked the reality TV landscape just a day prior by announcing her departure from RHOBH after a season of being ‘harassed’ by her fellow Housewives.
This week the business mogul sat down with DailyMailTV to share her new PSA that she created for
Shocking! During a sitdown with DailyMailTV to talk about her work with The Trevor Project, Lisa revealed that she was not returning to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Suicide has touched Lisa’s life personally. Last year her beloved brother Mark took his own life and the reality star grieved the loss as cameras rolled for the RHOBH.
‘It’s something that we should talk to our children about, especially our LGBTQ youth,’ Lisa said. ‘They’re four or five times more likely to take their own lives and that is a statistic that I would say is unacceptable.’
‘A lot of people really feel that they’re at the end of their tether,’ Lisa continued. ‘If you ever get to that position … there’s somebody there that wants to talk to you – and kind of talk you down form the ledge.’
‘The objective of the reunion is to reunite, right? And I have no inclination to reunite with the women who’ve been harassing me for 10 months now.’ Lisa admitted. ‘So in all probability, no.”
When the conversation turned from her charitable works to her professional work, Lisa was reticent to discuss her future on the show but with the reunion filming just days later, she had made her decision.
‘The reunion is coming up are you going?’ DailyMailTV asked Lisa.

The question was looming as to what that meant for Lisa’s future on the franchise and for months fans have wondered if she is going to return for another season.
DailyMailTV asked: ‘Does this factor into what you’re going to do next season? Are you coming back to the Housewives?’ ‘I think they’ve made it pretty impossible for me to go back frankly,’ she finally admitted. ‘So … no.’

Quickly she got back on task: ‘Let’s talk about The Trevor Project.’
Vanderpump’s new PSA for the organization comes just as Pride kicks off and this week the star is also receiving a legacy award for her work with the LGBTQ community.
Giving back: Lisa Vanderpump spoke about her important new PSA with The Trevor Project and how LGBTQ youth in crisis can get help
LGBTQ advocate: The Trevor Project is an organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention to youths in the LGBTQ community, is all about bringing awareness
Time away from RHOBH will certainly allow Lisa the opportunity to focus on her other hit reality show Vanderpump Rules as well as her charitable works like The Trevor Project.
In this past season, the 58-year-old star not only dealt with her brother’s death as filming began, but she was at odds with the rest of the cast.
Her fellow housewives accused her repeatedly of lying to them about negative stories that were leaked to the press.
The debacle began when a rescue pup from Vanderpump Dogs that was adopted by Dorit Kemsley ended up in a kill shelter after she re-homed it with a friend who gave it up.
Hard season: Lisa has been at odds with her fellow housewives, particularly Dorit Kemsley this season. The debacle began when a rescue pup from Vanderpump Dogs that was adopted by Dorit ended up in a kill shelter after she re-homed it with a friend who gave it up – this was the second dog Dorit gave up
This turned out to be the second dog that Dorit had given up after it was adopted from Vanderpump- the other dog was returned.
Lisa even went so far as to take a lie detector test to prove she didn’t leak the story.
‘PuppyGate’ as the scandal became known was the start of Lisa’s relationships on the show crumbling – she even kicked her former close friend Kyle Richards out of her home in one episode.
