On Twitter, Vanderpump opened up about her scary diagnosis. She also encouraged her fans to stay safe.

“Fantastic news I have all clear for biopsies after having experienced serious skin cancer,” Vanderpump told fans on Twitter, according to an Aug. 19 report by Wetpaint Entertainment. “I urge you to get tested and hide from sun!”

Vanderpump has been one of the stars of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" since the show premiered in 2010. However, after a dramatic season four, in which several of her co-stars accused her of manipulating others and setting up Kyle Richards to deal with allegations of her husband's reported cheating, Vanderpump pulled back, hinting to several media outlets that she was done with the show.

Then, in June 2014, Vanderpump confirmed she would be back for season five. At the time, Vanderpump told fans five was her lucky number and seemed positive about her return. Earleir this month, she spoke of her return to "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" again, telling the Halmark Channel, via Wetpaint Entertainment, that she decided to come back because, for the most part, she's had a great time filming the show and raising awareness for the issues that inspire her.

"It’s given me such an opportunity to talk about the things I’m passionate about… You know, because I’m a huge supporter of the LGBT community, children with alopecia, Keep the Memory Alive, all those things, so that’s been really, really helpful, and I’ve had a lot of fun doing it. I really have," she said.

Vanderpump isn't the only star of the show to deal with serious medical issues during filming. Her co-star, Yolanda Foster, has also experienced health problems and, at one point, was unable to fulfill her Bravo blogging duties because of a hospitalization.

"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" season five returns to Bravo this fall. No word yet on whether or not Vanderpump's skin cancer diagnosis will be seen on the show.
