Lisa Vanderpump is one of a handful of Bravo Housewives who has staying power in this sometimes precarious industry. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules star recently shared her feelings on what it means to be a reality ‘star,’ including how she initially got into the world of warring Housewives, and how she has navigated its rocky waters since.
Part of Lisa’s appeal is her depth. Lisa is not merely a “housewife” who cameras follow around for dramatic purposes; she’s also a long time business woman, brand builder, and activist for animal rights and the LGBT community. The restaurateur and humanitarian seems to understand something that many of the other Bravo Housewives (96 in total since the franchise’s inception ten years ago) often do not: Audiences stick with the person, not the persona.
Well, it wouldn’t be Real Housewives without a shady finance situation! Dorit Kemsley hasn’t even gotten her official Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills tagline yet, but she’s already a perfect fit considering her businessman husband PaulKemsley filed for bankruptcy a few years ago!
In 2012, Paul claimed to be $10 to $50 million dollars in debt, with numerous creditors in the US and abroad suing him for repayment.
Happy Tuesday. Only three and half more days til the weekend. In the meantime, let’s see what our reality stars are up to this week. Above, Lisa Rinna attended a special “Watch What Happens-Live on Stage” afterparty at Revolver Video Bar.
Of course, I expected the new grandmother to post about the baby eventually, but the accessories line seems like a pretty random endeavor to take on. I don’t ever recall Kim being much of a fashion plate, but then again I feel like it is probably good for her to have responsibility and structure so this is probably a good thing for her to do.
Congratulations are in order! Kim Richards’s daughter Brooke Wiederhorn has given birth to her first child. This means that Kim is officially a grandmother to a baby boy. Brooke and her husband Thayer Wiederhorn welcomed their son Wednesday night at around 11PM.
As of this moment, there is no word on the baby’s name and there are no pics posted on social media, but I’m sure that both will come soon enough. I mean, the baby was just born. I do not blame the family for focusing on more pressing matters.
Another day, another Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsevent! I love when the show is filming and we get a trickle of photos from parties, vacations and more. Hopefully we’re getting closer and closer to a premiere date announcement!
While we were home Sunday night filing our nails and taking out the garbage like regular people, Lisa Vanderpump and daughter Pandora Vanderpump Sabo were rubbing elbows with Hollywood elite at the Emmy Awards. You know, just another day in the life of Bravo royalty!
On the red carpet, Lisa took the time to dish on her two Bravo shows poised to premiere in the next few weeks: Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules. Of VPR, Lisa shares that it will be a “tumultuous ride” as the cast marches its way toward the wedding between Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz. But, Lisa admits, the cast still love each other despite their endless bad choices and backstabbing ways!
