Lisa Vanderpump ended her friendship with Dorit Kemsley after weeks of not speaking on Tuesday’s episode of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills.
The season 12 episode opened with Dorit, 42, being informed by her husband Paul ‘PK’ Kemsley, 51, that they were going to have lunch with Vanderpump, 58, and her husband Ken Todd.
‘That loving part of me wants to make things right, but I’m not gonna sacrifice my integrity to do that,’ Dorit said during a confessional.
Ultimatum issued: Lisa Vanderpump ended her friendship with Dorit Kemsley on Tuesday’s episode of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills
The British restaurateur in a confessional said she was looking forward for the lunch as ‘maybe a conduit to put the frienship back together’.
The falling out occurred after Dorit and the other women openly suspected Vanderpump of planting a tabloid story after a dog adoption between them gone awry.
‘I think we could find a middle ground. If she says to me, “I don’t believe that. I love you. Let’s move past this.” Then we’re kind of in harmony again,’ Vanderpump said in a confessional.
PK admitted that he wanted to restore their friendship and was putting most of the responsibility on Dorit.

Vanderpump said she hasn’t been happy and claimed ‘everybody’s been focused about Radar Online’.
‘So why did you call TMZ instead of calling me?,’ countered Dorit who questioned Vanderpump coming to her defense so quickly.
Vanderpump claimed it was a bigger statement reaching out to TMZ, but Dorit insisted she should’ve called her.

‘We don’t talk via the public. We don’t talk via the media. We talk within one another,’ Dorit told her.
Dorit in a confessional claimed Vanderpump gave Radar Online a story that was false and then turned to TMZ so ‘she can then come in and be the hero and defend me.’
Vanderpump and Ken both said that Dorit should be thanking her instead of questioning her motives.

‘You have to understand it’s very difficult for me to believe that you had nothing to do with that,’ Dorit admitted.
‘I’m sorry, I’ve got to draw a line in the sand. If you believe I gave the story to Radar Online, we don’t have a friendship,’ Vanderpump said during the episode titled The Ultimate Ultimatum.
Dorit refused to back down and Vanderpump wondered if she wanted her to take a lie detector test.

PK suggested they admit somehow things got crossed up and asked if they could ‘please eradicate it, erase it and move forward’.
‘You can only flip forward with Lisa and me if you understand that Lisa never, ever lies. She’s the best friend you will ever have, and if she doesn’t believe her, no friendship,’ Ken declared.
‘You’re trying to control our thoughts,’ protested PK.

Ken said they couldn’t agree to disagree while PK tried to play peacemaker.
‘If you think she’s lying, you can’t be a friend of hers,’ Ken repeatedly told Dorit.
PK admitted that he believed someone in Vanderpump’s camp leaked the story, but she insisted on her children’s life that she didn’t give the story.

He accepted that from Vanderpump, unlike Dorit who continued to insist that she planted the story.
‘Well, you’re no friend of mine. I’m going,’ Ken said as he got up and walked away.
Vanderpump was right behind him as Dorit chastised PK for putting her in a tough position.
