The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills gathered to film the Season 9 reunion on Wednesday — without Lisa Vanderpump.
Andy Cohen spilled the post-season tea on Instagram Live during a filming break, confirming that the popular reality star was absent.
Andy dished the update after his friend, Anderson Cooper, joined the lunchtime livestream on social media.
“The reunion is going great,” Andy said. “It’s major. Lisa vanderpump’s not here.”

Andy simply raised his eyebrows when Cooper asked if Lisa had made an appearance.
“There’s major things happening,” Andy quipped. “There’s trouble afoot in Beverly Hills.”
Lisa Vanderpump had already teased that she planned to pass on the reunion, and quit the show for good.
“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 recently told the DailyMailTV. “So in all probability, no.”
“I think they’ve made it pretty impossible for me to go back frankly,” she said when asked about her return. “So … no.”

Fans know that Lisa dropped out of filming with the cast about halfway through the season — after she was accused of leaking news of Dorit Kemsley’s botched dog adoption to an online outlet.
“I wasn’t as prepared for combat as I should’ve been,” Lisa admitted. “It hasn’t been a good situation.”
Lisa lost her brother, Mark Vanderpump, to suicide three months before filming season kicked off. The crushing loss added a dark dimension to what many fans have called a mean girl plot to push Lisa out.
“I think this year, with where my mental state was — and I’ve been very honest about that, I struggled a lot, you know, after my brother’s suicide,” Lisa added. “The first few months it was really difficult, and I was kind of searching for happiness, so, I think you know … when something really significant happens in your life, maybe it does change you, you know?”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Tuesday nights at 9 pm, ET, on Bravo.
