The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Recap: Did Lisa Vanderpump Stage Puppygate?

by at .

We're just a few episodes into The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 9, and there's been one storyline dominating the entire season. 

Yes, we are talking about Puppygate. We heard a lot about it before the season got underway, but would never have guessed it would have the ladies so divided. 

Lisa Vanderpump on the Spot

When Tuesday's new episode got underway, Teddi Mellencamp and Erika Girardi were chatting about how they felt about the whole scenario. 

This proved that Teddi and Erika had put their past behind them which is pretty great when you consider how at odds they were with each other last season. 

Teddi questioned whether to forgive Lisa Vanderpump, but Erika told her not to "let it go" quite yet, presumably because she had her own beef with the SUR boss. 

While that was going down, Kyle and LVP went for some lunch, and Kyle told her pal everything the ladies were saying about her.

Lisa vehemently denied staging Puppygate and decided the best course of action was for her to speak to Teddi about the whole situation.

"Am I here for an apology?" Teddi said the moment she walked into Lisa's suite, but Lisa remained calm. 

"I'd like an explanation," she said. 

Teddi felt like Lisa told John Blizzard to gossip about Dorit and the dog situation, but Lisa said that the story was completely fabricated and that she wanted to "shut it down."

That's when Teddi brought out her phone for the receipts, and it showed an exchange between Teddi and John.

"Didn't Lisa want you to tell me?" she asked John, who replied back, "YES."

Teddi then complained that Lisa's story was full of holes, so she decided to go into Dorit's room. 

"This isn't fair," Teddi complained to Dorit. "I'm telling you the same thing I told you last night: You did nothing in regards to this situation."

As Teddi geared up for her big exit from the suite, she turned to Lisa and uttered the following:

"You are much smarter than you lead on. You are not confused in this situation, and I'm not gonna be your pawn to get at [Dorit]."

Dorit did not know what the heck was going on. 

"On the one hand, I have a friend that I trust that I have history with," she told cameras.

"On the other hand, I have someone that I've had my issues with, who's coming in defense of me with such conviction," she continued.

"Who am I supposed to believe at this point?"

Things got worse at dinner because there was this huge elephant in the room, and everyone seemed to ignore Lisa.

This did not sit well with her, so she got up and left the dinner date, claiming that her early flight meant she should be in bed early. 

While everyone got chatting about LVP, it became clear that the only person on her side was Camille Grammer, who felt like Dorit should have told Lisa about the situation with the puppy. 

It's common courtesy, no?

Back in Los Angeles, Lisa was cut up about the whole situation, and husband Ken Todd was on hand to defend her honor. 

In a truly hilarious segment, he asked John Blizzard to print out the entire conversation with Teddi.

We didn't get to see everything because we don't really care what they had for lunch, but we were left with the following bombshell from Teddi:

"Have the dog there, and I can say it looks like Dorit's dog. Either way, it will come out."  

Um, what? 

Did Teddi seriously orchestrate this whole scenario?

We'll need to tune in to find out. 

Either way, this does not look good for Teddi.

What do you think of the latest drama?
