According to a new report, Cohen brought in a secret weapon to help convince her to stay: Lance Bass.

TMZ reports that Cohen and Bass planned a casual dinner at Vanderpump’s new Beverly Hills restaurant, PUMP, over the weekend, but their ulterior motive was to get Vanderpump to sign a new contract.

The restaurant maven hasn’t decided whether or not to return because she’s reportedly fed up with the other women bullying her.
