2016 World Dog Day Featuring: Lisa Vanderpump Where: Hollywood, California, United States When: 22 May 2016 Credit: FayesVision/WENN.com

There was a lot of talk about Lisa Vanderpump quitting Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after the hard time she had last season when pretty much every cast member (except for Kyle Richards) tried to outcast her and accused her of “being manipulative.” Eventually Lisa said she would only return to RHOBH if the show promised to highlight her work as an activist for animal rights and gay rights.

I wasn’t sure if Lisa was just holding out for a bigger paycheck (not that she needs the money), but she ended up agreeing to come back (obviously) and she had a great reason for returning. I’m sure part of her loves the celebrity status she has gained, but I do think it is great that Lisa is very involved with such important causes on a regular basis.

If you find it hard to believe that Lisa would only return to the show to promote her activism, I get it because it is so tough to determine who in reality TV is actually genuine, but LVP really does seem to care for all the right reasons.

Lisa posted on Instagram urging her followers to join her in a discussion about animal right issues on September 14. Lisa wrote, “Please join me, Congressman Alcee Hastings, Dr. John Sessa, Peter Li (HSI), Andrea Gung (Duo Duo), Mark Ching (Animal Hope & Wellness) and other activists on September 14th at 8:00 am in the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center, Congressional Auditorium (CVC-200) to discuss the dog meat trade in Asia, the brutal Yulin Dog Meat Festival in Yulin, China, and how we plan to make an impact with the House Resolution 752.”

If you watched the show last season, you probably remember Lisa leading a march to stop the mistreatment and killings of dogs in Yulin.

Lisa also shared some specific information about the event, “The main entrance to the CVC is at “East Capitol St. NE and First St. NE.” Everyone attending will be required to go through security. The full list of prohibited items can be found here: https://www.visitthecapitol.gov/plan-visit/prohibited-items. For more information contact [email protected] We hope to see you there! Help be a voice for the voiceless! #StopYulinForever”

It’s nice to see a Housewife who is interested in more than just promoting teeth whitening products and detox teas on Instagram. Lisa wants her fans to get involved with a cause that she is passionate about and it would be great if she was able to parlay her reality TV fame to genuinely make a difference.
