Lisa Vanderpump has kept a serious health condition secret from her fans. On Monday, August 18, the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star revealed that she went through treatment for skin cancer.
"Fantastic news I have all clear for all biopsies after having experienced serious skin cancer," she tweeted. She also urged everyone to get their skin checked and to stay away from the sun.
This seems to be the first time that Lisa has said anything about having skin cancer. Several of her fans replied to her tweet to express shock about her skin cancer and to say how happy they are that she now has a clean bill of health. It's not clear how long Lisa had skin cancer for, exactly how serious it was and whether she had to do other treatments besides surgery.
Despite what she went through, Lisa still has a sense of humor. One fan's response to Lisa's tweet was actually a dig at her co-star Yolanda Foster, something which Lisa seemed to like. Pretending to be Yolanda, the fan scolded Lisa for not attending her painting party. "I know right," Lisa responded.
On season four, Yolanda criticized Lisa for not attending her painting party, which was held for the housewives to make decorative gifts for her daughter who was going away to college. At the time, Lisa defended herself by saying that she was simply too busy with her work to attend. Lisa's latest tweets seem to indicate that she was also dealing with skin cancer at the time and that she still has a bit of resentment towards Yolanda for not understanding that she may have been going through a difficult time in her life.
However, unlike Lisa Vanderpump, Yolanda Foster has been very public and vocal about her struggle with Lyme disease. Yolanda may now feel as if Lisa can't be angry about not getting sympathetic treatment and support from others if she chose not to reveal what she was really going through in her life. If Lisa really did keep the skin cancer news hidden from her "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" co-stars, Yolanda may also feel offended that Lisa didn't believe that she was a good enough friend to confide in.
