We’re so over the people drama, bring on the pups! 

For the Real Housewives of Beverly Hill’s fans that caught the doggie drama this week, well it seems it’s just the beginning. 

And Lisa Rinna is not having it.

The Housewife came after her fellow co-star Lisa Vanderpump after catching wind that there is a Vanderpump Dogs spin-off show in the works

“In the game of life, it’s Rinna take all,” the actress says in her tagline, and that’s exactly what she intends to do if the rumors about Lisa Vanderpump’s latest show are true.

While the new series has yet to be confirmed, Lisa is warning Bravo now and Vanderpump that she better get what she is owed if the show actually happens.

“I’m a hustler. I make no bones about that. I think you get paid for what you do,” Rinna began in a lengthy rant on her Instagram story on Thursday, March 7.

“So my feeling is if we indeed are servicing a spin-off we should get paid for it.”

The Days of Our Lives alum went on to explain that she fully supports her other castmates for building their own empires outside of the Bravo network.

“I am so happy for all of us to use this platform for make up lines network tv shows restaurants clothing lines fitness empires you name it I support these women 100 percent,” she continued.

“But if you are going to use our services without telling us – that we are playing out a storyline to launch a pilot for a new show and you don’t compensate us extra for that.”

Rinna concluded by threatening to take legal action against Vanderpump.

“Yeah I’m a hustler. I get paid for what I do,” she added.

“So if this indeed becomes another show my lawyer will be calling. $$$$$$$$$$$$.”

Multiple sources did tell US Weekly earlier this month that a spin-off show centered around Vanderpump Rules star’s animal rescue center is “in the works.”

The problem arose when the rescue center employees made waves during season 9 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills when staff member John Blizzard claimed to Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp that Dorit Kemsley’s former pup Lucy ended up at a kill shelter.

“Several of the other Housewives are pissed because they feel like they were used, and specifically Teddi and Dorit were thrown under the bus and into drama all so this spinoff could happen,” the source told Us.

Sit Back and Watch the S--t!

The entire cast agrees that Vanderpump and her employees orchestrated the conversation just to land a spin-off and “they are not happy about it and not happy that it’s happening with Lisa when she didn’t even show up for most of the season of filming.”

Teddi opened up about her thoughts on the situation telling Us, “Wouldn’t that be convenient? I wonder why they based a whole drama about a dog!”

Rinna chimed in with a since-deleted tweet about the set up after the March 5 episode aired. 

As the story goes, for those of you who missed out, Kemsley adopted a dog from Lisa’s shelter and ended up re-homing it. 

However, the new owner took it back to a shelter before it eventually made its way to Vanderpump Dogs.

Lisa’s employee, John Blizzard, re-hashed the scandal to both Kyle Richards and Mellencamp, and well there you have the drama-filled season.

As much as we all would love to watch a dog-filled show, especially involving tycoon Lisa Vanerpump, is it really fair to put these doggies in the midst of drama?

It makes us question whether it is built out of love for the dogs, or out of love for the story around the dogs. 

Lisa Vanderpump has yet to comment on her pawsible newest franchise.
