Our favorite Beverly Hills restauranteur is being put through the ringer by a former employee with what Lisa Vanderpump deems a "frivolous and a clear case of malicious prosecution."
The backstory — Karina Bustillos filed a $5 million sexual assault and battery lawsuit against the Real Housewives of Beverly Hill'sLisa Vanderpump and her restaurant Villa Blanca, claiming a manager tried to kiss her, called her names and violently grabbed her wrists. A few weeks ago, TMZ reported that Lisa was willing to settle the lawsuit with the out-of-work actress — who admitted to being fired numerous times — for $40,000 — not even close to the $5 million Bustillos was demanding. At the time it looked like a settlement would not be reached and the case may go to court. But what a difference a week makes…
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and the manager of her other LA hotspot, Villa Blanca, are being accused of sexual harassment by a former waitress. The woman — who Lisa claims is just an out-of-work actress — is asking for $5 million, but Lisa has another idea of what her claims are worth.
I don't think any marriage counselor ever would advise you to go on a reality show if you and your spouse were having issues…especially not on one of the housewives franchises. The Bravo freight train is riddled with divorce. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that of all the cities, Real Housewives of New Jersey is the only series that hasn't had a resulting divorce…and we all saw how well those ladies' marriages looked last night, right?
