Vanderpump Rules fans and West Hollywood residents know that Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd own a bar called Tom Tom, which was named in honor of Vanderpump Rules cast members Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz. The two Toms also own a small percentage of the bar.
Aside from Tom Tom, Schwartz and Sandoval recently announced their plans to open up another establishment, a “dive bar” in California. In December, Sandoval and his longtime girlfriend, Ariana Madix, released their first book together, Fancy AF Cocktails, a book full of drink recipes (that you can purchase by clicking here) along with some personal stories thrown in. Recently, the reality star shared another business venture he hopes to take on.
During an interview with the magazine Us Weekly, Sandoval revealed, “I would love to have a place [on the East Coast].” The reality TV star also shared, “I would either do Tom Tom, or if it was different, I’d call it something else.” Vague, but alright. As an East Coast reality TV fanatic, I’m in full support of it.
This Us Weekly interview took place in New York City, which prompted Tom to share, “I would love to have a place out here. It’d be awesome.” Again, I fully concur with the idea.
Still, this doesn’t sound like a project that would come together right away. The OG Vanderpump Rules cast member admitted that money is a major obstacle when it comes to getting this business venture off the ground.
He admitted, “Obviously the rent is a little pricey.” Ain’t that the truth? But, maybe he can work out another deal with Lisa and Ken in order to get their financial support. And, of course, the loyalty of their fandom wouldn’t hurt either.
TELL US- WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT TOM SANDOVAL’S DESIRE TO OPEN UP A NEW BAR ON THE EAST COAST? WOULD IT BE SUCCESSFUL IF LISA AND KEN WERE NOT ATTACHED TO THE PROJECT?
