Those waiting for the latest drama on Vanderpump Rules need wait no more. 

After the girls of the series finally settled their differences and seemed to work everything out, Billie Lee joined the show to add a little drama of her own.

Lee, a transgender woman, has made national headlines for her LGBT activist platform. Calling Lisa Vanderpump her godmother, Lee praised her boss for allowing her to be part of the show and for her job. 

Though they have a cozy employer-employee relationship, all’s not well on the Vanderpump front, as Lala Kent and Lee have already managed to get into some scuffles. 

“Billie is just a very strange person,” Kent said in an interview with Bravo’s Daily Dish. “I think she likes to stir the pot.”

The remarks come on the heels of rumors that Lee already reported the other females on the cast for allegedly excluding her from a party because she was transgender. 

The girls took offense to the accusation, especially Katie Maloney-Schwartz, who was angered that Lee would accuse them of being prejudiced. 

Rather hypocritically, Lee seemed to participate in some discrimination of her own, as she brought back old fat-shaming comments to take a dig at Maloney-Schwartz. 

“She pulls her fat card, I will pull my trans card. I cannot say ‘Oh, I can’t be trans.’ She can put the food down,” Lee is revealed to be saying in the new episode’s trailer. 

While the drama is certainly heating up, it’s not all bad news for the Vanderpump ladies. 

“I tell her she looks chic, ‘cause she does,” Kent said of Lee in her Daily Dish interview. “Even if I don’t care for you and you look good, I’ll tell you you look good.”
