Ken Todd Says He And Lisa Vanderpump “Can’t Blame” The Person Who Broke Into Pump Because He “Was Desperate For A Pump-tini”

Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd have built an impressive empire. Equally impressive is their ability to hire super-hot people and make a reality show about their personal dramas against the backdrop of the couple’s luxe restaurants. If you’re obsessed anything like me, you’ve visited all of their establishments on the West Coast.

This is part of what makes the Vanderpump Rules mastermind, LVP, such a genius. She knew that creating a series based on her staff would bring in business. Not just local business but business afar, from people who are fans of the show. Since LA is currently in lockdown due to COVID, Lisa’s establishments have been closed. This is a reminder that we’re living in desperate times. And desperate times apparently call for desperate measures.

As TMZ exclusively reported, a man wearing a blue face mask, equipped with a backpack and shears attempted to break into Pump on Sunday night. Law enforcement shared with TMZ that the West Hollywood Sheriff’s office received a call from three concerned eye-witnesses at about 7 pm. Within minutes, seven police units arrived at the scene, along with a helicopter. They “detained the suspect.”

The response was so intense because this man has “been seen in the area before.” TMZ also reported that police, “spoke to reps for the WeHo joint and they decided NOT to press charges on the suspect,” because, “no real damage was done.” That is really nice of Ken and Lisa! Ken even told TMZ the burglar “was desperate for a Pump-tini. We can’t blame him.”

Apparently, once the perpetrator figured out he was spotted by people on the street, he “put the shears back in his backpack and stood there as if nothing was amiss.” The witnesses even took a picture of him. Neither Ken or Lisa was at the restaurant at the time. While I enjoyed Ken’s statement to TMZ, I think the burglar probably wanted the fried goat cheese balls.

TELL US- DO YOU THINK KEN AND LISA SHOULD HAVE PRESSED CHARGES? HOW BAD DO YOU WANT A PUMP-TINI POST-LOCKDOWN?
