You might think Lisa Vanderpump has everything. Solid marriage, two children, and an army of animal friends. She also maintains a hectic work schedule, with various successful restaurants in Los Angeles. Lisa is also a champion for animal rights. She has been consistent in using her platform to raise awareness and change laws, along with saving doggy lives. A beautiful home, wealth, and fame are the benefits achieved from her continued efforts and hard work.
It doesn’t come without a cost. Since moving to the States, Lisa has been quite a distance from her family in England. She was heartbroken when her only brother committed suicide in 2018. His death was a foreshadow into more problems ahead. She chose to film season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules, despite her grief. A decision she admittedly regrets. Now comes news of more tragic loss for Lisa and her family. But this time, she has decided to take a break.
In some very sad news Lisa’s mother has passed away. According to the Daily Mail, Jean Vanderpump was 84-years-old and died Monday. A source close to Lisa shared, “ This has hit Lisa very hard and she is shocked by her mother’s sudden death.”
Lisa has also taken a reprieve from Vanderpump Rules, currently in production. This sad news is, of course, on the heels of Lisa’s decision to quit RHOBH. The source went on to say, “Lisa has not had an easy past 14 months. In April of 2018 her brother Mark committed suicide rocking her family to its core.” Lisa recently admitted she had to begin taking anti-depressants, as a way to cope with the loss of Mark.

While Lisa and her mother maintained a very close relationship, Ms. Vanderpump chose to remain out of the public eye. The source added, “One thing is for sure with Lisa though, she’s as strong as they come and once she has worked through her grief she will be back running her restaurant empire, focusing on her philanthropic endeavors and filming Vanderpump Rules.”
Lisa will be flying to England this week, to arrange her mother’s funeral. A representative for Lisa stated that she was “too upset to comment at this time.”
