Speaking about the slap! Lisa Vanderpump opened up to Us Weekly about the explosive Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season five trailer released earlier this week, which features her getting slapped by an as-yet-unrevealed foe.
"I mean, obviously that's the point of a trailer," the British restauranteur told Us at her Pop Culture Living Collection launch held at PUMP Lounge on Thursday, Nov. 6. "To say 'watch the season and take the moments,' but there were many moments," she mused.
"I don't know how they made that trailer, actually, because there were so many good moments," she teased of the upcoming season which includes the addition of two new Housewives Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson. "There were a couple 'oh my God!' moments that changed the dynamic. I think that's what a trailer is: Bam, that happened, and bam! This happens and it changes the dynamic in the group."
As seen in the shocking preview unveiled exclusively by Us on Monday, Brandi Glanville and Davidson, an Emmy-winning Days of Our Lives actress, immediately run into issues. Other newcomer and soap alum Rinna throws a wine glass on the floor during a (you guessed it!) dinner party. But, the most jaw-dropping moment witnessed in the clip is when Vanderpump is slapped by a mysterious person.
"You saw a big moment with Lisa Rinna, you saw a couple of big moments with me," Vanderpump told Us Thursday. "There are also poignant moments in there. There are friendships that have been rebuilt that last year, there was no hope for."
After being hesitant to join this last season of RHOBH, Vanderpump says she's still unclear whether she'll return for season six. "I don't know," she admitted to Us. "I just always think… if this is how they document my life, it's fantastic, really."
Indeed, the entrepreneur leads a fabulous life in general. Vanderpump told Us how excited she was to launch her new home decor line. "I've always loved kind of creating ambiance and that's what I've done," she said. "It's important to me to create this kind of whole feeling, where you feel so welcome and that was always my aim at home. It was a natural extension for me to do a tabletop line."
While no new restaurant openings are on the horizon, the business-minded reality star added that she hopes to shift her focus towards design in the future. "I've worked so hard, that’s the problem," she mused to Us. "I would like to scale back a bit. It's been tough. The last few years with recessions in restaurants — and you know, restaurants around me closing down — it’s tough to make it work. So I don't know what the future holds."
