First, Lisa talks about her fight against the Dog Meat Festival and the birth of The Vanderpump Dog Foundation, “As we first entered into the pet world creating Vanderpump Pets, we became slowly enlightened of the brutalities that transpired each year against dogs in China during the summer solstice. In an effort to draw attention to it, we marched to the Chinese embassy, we sent placards around the world, the slogan Stop Yulin Forever was plastered over many t-shirts, a resolution was formed, as we managed to garner interest and support from a congressman and hopefully pass through congress a resolution that would draw attention globally and end this barbarity once and for all.”
“I kind of took a backseat to all the other issues this week. Clearly there are still a lot of problems brewing with everyone, but the real important issues were the causes being supported,” shares Eileen, who goes on to write a mean-spirited blog influenced by her “other” issues with Lisa Vanderpump. Sad. 🙁
“How different life was seven months ago. I guess the only thing constant in life is change, and boy did I experience change in 2015,” says Yolanda. “I fought to live, I loved, I lost, I missed, I hurt, I trusted, I made mistakes, but most of all, I learned..and with that knowledge I choose to move forward, one day at a time.”
Yolanda says she’s proud of Camille Grammer for sharing her “journey” and turning her “mess into a message,” sharing, “I was happy to be able to support her beautiful event, even if it was just for a quick visit.”
“[This festival] was brought to my attention, and I was absolutely devastated at seeing this kind of heinous, barbaric torture of these poor animals,” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star said prior to the march. “I don’t feel I could live my life knowing this goes on without making an attempt to stop it.”
Lisa Vanderpump is an expert reality star. Gearing up for her sixth season of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills and her fourth as Head Mistress of Vanderpump Rules, she’s seen and heard it all – without losing her sense of humor and love of life! But more importantly reality TV has given Lisa exposure to raise awareness for causes that matter, like LGTB and animal rights.
Somehow Lisa manages to juggle marriage and motherhood, famousfriends, charity endeavors, three restaurants, and two reality shows alongside many high maintenance friends (and enemies) – without so much as wrinkling a satiny, bedazzled blouse! Can she bottle this and sell at SUR?
“I’ve had such a wonderful experience with it,” admits Lisa. “It’s given me so many chances to stand up for things.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump is taking on another big project. Does she ever sleep? Mrs. Vanderfabulous sat down with Fox Business to talk about her restaurants, her product lines, her charity work, and the march she’s organizing in the hope of putting an end to the horrific Yulin Dog Meat Festival in China. She even shared what she hopes her headstone will say when she dies!
On her many, many businesses she dished “The restaurants are kind of our bread and butter. My husband and I have had now 26 in total. We’ve got three in Los Angeles so they kind of keep everything rolling.”
She then shares that her sangria has been a smash hit (it’s also now being sold at the Caesar’s properties in Vegas – see below!) Lisa explained, “We just started this LVP Sangria, which has done really well. It was actually my idea, my recipe, my concept. My daughter and her husband said ‘we want to take it to the market’ and I said ‘oh god no, it’s going to be too complicated.’ It’s such a lot of work to get alcohol out there. But it’s done phenomenally well. It’s in 33 states and many countries around the world, so I never see my daughter anymore and they’ve done really well with it.”
