I love it when we’re able to share a positive story about Real Housewives – in this case, Lisa Vanderpump‘s crusade to get China to stop the Yulin Dog Meat Festival has paid off with the government issuing a temporary ban against the disgusting practice.
There is a way to go before the practice is outlawed entirely. “It’s not over yet,” cautions the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star, “but apparently they are going to enforce fines of up to $900 and possibly arrest violators starting on June 15 so it’s a huge step in the right direction.”
The Vanderpump Rules viewers are used to the drama at Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd’s restaurant SUR, but now their original California restaurant Villa Blanca is making headlines and it’s for a pretty scary reason. The restaurant caught on fire.
Thankfully, it seems like all the people who were present are safe and sound, but I’m sure it was a horrifying experience.
After a tough season last year, Lisa Vanderpump definitely turned things around this time. Well, either that, or Lisa Rinna just screwed up enough to take away from what everyone else was doing. But let’s be real, that party Vanderpump threw for the finale was immaculate and she definitely reclaimed her throne by the end of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 7.
Still, Lisa Vanderpump couldn’t resist shading LisaRinna and supporting her loyal soldier Dorit Kemsley before the season officially comes to a halt.
Does Lisa Rinna have something on Eileen Davidson. I get that they’ve been friends for years and know each other from the soap opera life, but Eileen is just so loyal to Rinna. There is definitely something to be admired there (kind of), but at the same time, I’m so confused.
Other than the blind loyalty to Rinna and dragging out that whole “affair” thing with Lisa Vanderpump, Eileen is the most level-headed person in the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast. So I just don’t get how she can stick by Rinna after her crusade against Kim Richards. There is no chance that Rinna actually “forgot” that she said “Kim was close to death.” I have no idea how Eileen has been defending this all season – even after watching the episodes.
The biggest shock from the season finale of Vanderpump Rules was when Lisa Vanderpump approached Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz about opening up a bar with her and Ken Todd. Well, it actually makes total sense for Lisa to ask Sandoval since he has been working at SUR for a decade and he has been very reliable. On the other hand, Schwartz has never come through for Lisa professionally, so I can see why he would be scared to accept the offer.
At first, I was thinking to myself, “What are you doing? Just say yes! Who would pass up a chance to start a business with Lisa and Ken?!,” but the more I thought about it, the more I understood why Schwartz would be little bit scared to take on that level of responsibility.
Over the weekend was the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, which brings out plenty of reality stars. Dance Moms stars JoJo Siwa and Chloe Lukasiak were there, as well as Lamar Odom, Blac Chyna, Heidi Klum and others.

Just in case her lifestyle wasn’t fabulous enough, Lisa Vanderpump is adding a little more glitz and glam to her repertoire! The restaurant owner, philanthropist, and star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been named Editor In Chief of the luxury magazine, Beverly Hills Lifestyle.
Lisa, who’s been involved with the magazine for seven years, says she loves writing, “as my fans know from my blogs,” and that her tenure as Editor In Chief is “going to be a passion project for me.” Beverly Hills Lifestyle caters to a readership who are interested in the finer points of travel, food, fashion, and “luxury lifestyle” (hey, Kyle Richards – they stole your mojo!).
