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.
Pandora Vanderpump-Sabo collaborated with PANDORA Jewelry to host a Mother’s Day brunch for her along with some special guests like Brandi, Vanderpump Rules’ Scheana Marie and her mom Valerie, The Bachelor’sCatherine Guidici along with her soon to be mother-in-law Sherry Lowe and many more.
Each guest received a PANDORA Jewelry Bangle, while Pandora gifted Lisa with a PANDORA Jewelry 18 Carat White Gold Bracelet with Pave set diamonds. Even Giggy joined the fun by giving Lisa a little bling, too.
As par for the course, the children of the Real Housewives of any location are always dragged into the mess that is the show – and sometimes being on TV isn’t so fantastic. Glamour Magazine recently interviewed the adult daughters of some of our favorite (and least favorite) Bravo moms. The girls were candid about their experiences on the show and how it has affected their lives.
Interestingly, some of the girls would love to do reality TV in their own right, while others have absolutely no desire. “I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t get caught up in being on TV for a little bit,” Lauren admits. “I said to my boyfriend, Vito, a while ago, ‘I found a ring that I want. Go buy it, and we’ll get married on TV.’ And then I said to myself, That’s not what I want right now. It doesn’t make sense to get married. I need to become a woman on my own. And I don’t think I could do that right now with a ring on my finger.”
Pandora, who did get married on TV, and whose wedding was featured in last season’s finale of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, confesses she had to seriously consider letting such a personal moment be played out in public. “I’m a more private person than my mother is. So when Jason proposed, we had to think about how we were going to do this wedding,” Pandora shares.
“My mother’s [Lisa Vanderpump] life is on television, but mine really isn’t. I didn’t mind that the planning was on TV, because, to be honest, it’s quite nice to have a record of all that. Who else gets to relive picking out their invitations or their bachelorette party?”
