It seems that Lisa Vanderpump will have at least one ally on season five of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." In an interview with E! News, posted on Wednesday, July 23, Lisa gave her thoughts on actress Lisa Rinna, who has reportedly joined the show.

While Lisa V. didn't confirm that Lisa R. is indeed a new Beverly Hills housewife, she did gush about her. Lisa V. explained that she has known Lisa R. for 25 years. She said that she loves Lisa R. and has an authentic relationship with her. She also pointed out that Lisa R. is very vocal and opinionated, which makes for good reality TV.

The British restaurateur also spoke out about Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia, both of whom were dropped from the show after only one season. Sadly for Lisa, they were her two strongest allies last season. Lisa said that she is "sad" that Joyce and Carlton are no longer housewives but remarked that there's nothing that she can do since she doesn't make the rules.

As for why Lisa decided to return to the show after telling everyone how horrible season four was for her, she explained that being away from the show for a few months helped heal things and she had kind of reconnected with a few of the other housewives. She also admitted that she was under contract with Bravo.

While neither Lisa R. or the Bravo network has confirmed that she'll be a housewife on season five of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," her addition has been reported by several outlets, including Us Weekly, that she has joined the show. She has also been spotted filming with some of the other cast members, including Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards, who went to her birthday party.

On Tuesday, July 22, Lisa Rinna tweeted that she's "kind of loving" Atlanta housewife NeNe Leakes because "her sassy flag is flying high." Perhaps she'll be as sassy of a housewife as NeNe?
