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…
I want y'all to think back to a simpler time…a time when neighbors were friends, and they washed Cornish game hens in dish washing soap and had dinner parties together. A time before the skies grew dark, and one friend with blue hair feathers got mad at another satin cloaked friend for not having her satin cloaked daughter's bachelorette party at feather-mane's casino. I miss those days. NOT! While I generally don't enjoy conflict (it makes me super uncomfortable), there is something about the Lisa Vanderpump/Adrienne Maloof feud that is oh, so entertaining.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars used to be pals, but now there's an unfair fight brewing in the tabloids. A now fired Adrienne is taking every opportunity to badmouth her former friend, and she should have learned long ago that talking smack about Lisa never ends well for the smack talker. Lisa is smart enough not to start any drama, but when it comes her way, she silences it with some biting and witty remarks that make said smack talker look like an idiot. And let's be honest, shall we? Adrienne is already struggling with her image, and her new plan of spewing hate on Lisa's restaurant Villa Blanca is quickly backfiring.
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?
