Lisa Vanderpump and 4,000 of her closest friends (including Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsco-star Kyle Richards) took over West Hollywood Park yesterday for World Dog Day, to help bring awareness to the Stop Yulin Forever movement and Lisa’s desire to “clear the shelters” and find homes for all dogs.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge, who is competing in the Musclemania fitness competition on May 28, shared, “Just holding this wall up in my bikini. Less than 3 weeks away and I feel far from ready. It’s crunch time baby. #cardio #progresspics #musclemania #may28 #momsthatlift #fitmom #findmeatthegym”
Shannon had some fun making a custom pair of DSW Converse sneakers with a wave print for husband David. She revealed that he has taken up surfing as a new hobby. Scheana Marie went with a feather design for her Converse. Scheana also stopped by the Marc Jacobs Beauty suite for some make-up touch ups. See the pics of the ladies below.
Lisa took to social media over the weekend to inform her over one million Twitter followers of Daddio’s untimely demise. “My little Daddio passed away whilst we were traveling back, daddy of Giggy whom we adopted two years ago. So very sad,” said the 55-year-old avid animal lover.
About the moments immediately after Brandi left the mixer, Lisa shared, “Kyle was extremely agitated, upset, and reacting to the volatility and giving unnecessary credence to the spiteful remark made about Mauricio. I have told her and chastised her to stop even investing in the jabs Brandi takes at her marriage. They are as irrelevant as she is at this point.” (So true!) “I ignore Kyle‘s nonsensical retort towards me, when I state that I understood, as I had been a recipient of her negativity myself.”
Lisa Vanderpump’s family turned out to support her on the launch of her new lifestyle collection. Lisa kicked off the debut of The Vanderpump Beverly Hills Collection by Pop Culture Promotions and put her new wares on display for guests in attendance.
There weren’t any Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cameras lurking about at the party nor any castmates in attendance, so I’m going to venture a guess that this event won’t be featured on the upcoming season. Lisa probably wanted to keep it classier than that.
On hand to celebrate with Lisa: her husband, Ken Todd, Giggy, daughter Pandora Sabo, and BFF Lance Bass. Not on hand? Her Beverly Hills co-stars! She Tweeted yesterday afternoon, “Enormous thank you to all of you who came out to support me in Palm Springs, so grateful.” Edited to add – it looks like new co-star Lisa Rinna was in attendance (see photo #3).
Since the show is filming the new season, we’re hoping that means a camera crew was along to catch the ceremony for show footage to be shared at some point. But it’s strange that none of Lisa’s co-stars made the trip. Or maybe that’s part of the storyline – everyone still turning their backs on our Mrs. Vanderfabulous?
This is an odd case of Lisa Vanderpump's restaurant Villa Blanca being sued by a former waitress who alleges that the manager harassed her and created a hostile work environment. What seems straightforward (and we know these types of claims are filed all the time by employees), took a rather odd turn when you get into the details of the case – including allegations that evidence went missing and accusations that the owners mismanaged a rather simple employee request thus turning it into a much bigger deal. Add to that, Lisa herself made a rather intriguing Tweet about the results of the case.
Let's break this down! First of all did Ken Toddhave a senior moment when it came to disciplining an employee, which led to things winding up in court? Karina Bustillos, a former server, filed a suit against Villa Blanca claiming manager Michael Govia claiming that in 2012 he attempted to kiss her and on another occasion twisted her wrists when she asked for change to distribute tips at the end of her shift. These types of incidents created a hostile work environment and she took her complaints to her employers, Lisa and Ken.
