The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and the manager of her other LA hotspot, Villa Blanca, are being accused of sexual harassment by a former waitress. The woman — who Lisa claims is just an out-of-work actress — is asking for $5 million, but Lisa has another idea of what her claims are worth.

According to TMZ, while Karina Bustillos was working at Villa Blanca, the manager "tried to kiss her, called her a "c***," and violently grabbed her wrists." Which lead her to file her sexual harassment and battery lawsuit.
Lisa Vanderpump told TMZ, "the suit is ridiculous. The woman is an out-of-work actress who has admitted in her deposition she's been fired several times … once for drinking on the job." Does anyone else think it is funny that she was fired for drinking on the job? The kids on Vanderpump Rules seem to drink at work all the time — maybe she was just working at the wrong restaurant.
She went on to tell TMZ, — "contrary to Bustillos' allegations — it's already been established Lisa knew nothing about the accusations until the case was filed."
"And Vanderpump says the manager in question has NEVER had a complaint filed against him and has worked for her for years. Finally Vanderpump says she fully investigated and there's no evidence the manager did anything wrong."
Contrary to the $5 million that Bustillos is asking for, Lisa is offering a $40,001 settlement. No idea why the extra $1, but I love it! Bustillos has until today to decide whether to accept the settlement offer.
