Real Housewives of
Sherman Oaks Beverly Hills alum, Kathryn Edwards, made quite a splash on a recent podcast appearance. This is far more publicity than she ever experienced while a member of the RHOBH cast. But it’s safe to say most everyone is talking about a group of women who have now ousted two co-stars in a hail of ambiguous accusations and general gas lighting.
Kathryn was spared from the sophomore hot seat because she
was fired did not film a second season, but that isn’t stopping her from talking about her experience on the show. In a new interview, Kathryn detailed how Lisa Vanderpump allegedly controlled storylines and was reluctant to quit. Though Lisa is no longer involved with the program, she felt the need to address Kathryn’s chatter and set the record straight. Since fame whores gonna fame whore, this all happened on Twitter.
Life hasn’t been all diamonds and roses lately for Vanderpump Rules star Lisa Vanderpump. Lisa announced that her beloved restaurant, Villa Blanca, is permanently closed. Lisa and her husband, Ken Todd, are being sued in a class action lawsuit brought by a SUR employee. The employee, Olivia Beverly Hanson, is alleging that the couple violated California labor laws.
In June, Pump Rules cast members Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were axed from the show for racist behavior. In 2018, the duo called the police on former co-star Faith Stowers and accused her of drugging and robbing men. Newbie cast members Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens also received pink slips once racially insensitive tweets from the past reappeared. Wow…just wow.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills OG Lisa Vanderpump and her husband Ken Todd are being sued by a former (and super short-lived) employee (who worked there for months) for unpaid wages… again. If you recall, another former employee sued the couple with similar claims in January 2020.
It’s been a rough time with the restaurants for the entrepreneurial couple. Lisa expressed concerns that her restaurants will close amid the coronavirus pandemic. And, then, Villa Blanca shut down, but, apparently, that has more to do with a lease ending than anything else… supposedly. Although things seem to be tough on the business front, some of the Vanderpump Rules cast members have Lisa’s back in response to the latest lawsuit against her and Ken.
Oh, Lisa Vanderpump, what a tangled web you weave. First, she has a lot to celebrate. Lisa has announced starting a new podcast and a new show about Vanderpump Dogs! I can’t wait to hear all about “ponies…and sex…or lack thereof.” A regular rainbows and butterflies kind of gal. Unfortunately, though, LVP’s image has also been hit with quite a few blows recently.
Vila Blanca has closed for good, and even Adrienne Maloof is coming forward to remind us of all the storylines LVP has constructed over the years. I think the running total is at like 5? Well, unfortunately, it doesn’t look like there’s a reprieve in sight for this lady in pink.
She gets knocked down! But she gets up again! You are never gonna keep her down! I think this is the song Lisa Vanderpump from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills sings to herself every morning in the mirror. Probably while she hairsprays the living hell out her stiff-ass hair she can’t seem to ever get behind that left ear, try as she might. Lisa recently had some beef with Sarah Paulson of all people. Her famed restaurant Villa Blanca has closed it doors for good. And, if you’ve been under a rock, you might have missed that her show, Vanderpump Rules has come under some fire lately. Literally. They fired four cast members for being racist. Oh, and don’t forget her husband, Ken Todd, has recently been accused of cheating.
Defend or excuse any of that all you want, but it’s a lot to deal with at once. That said, Lisa, as we’ve seen, can take the largest dumpster fire (ex – Jax Taylor and Stassi Schroeder) and exploit it into a multi-season hit. She just doesn’t quit. Well. Except for that time she literally quit RHOBH. But whatever.
Lisa Vanderpump has had a rough few months. Vanderpump Rules, which is the only Bravo show she has left to stand on, just experienced a major reckoning. The firing of four cast members over racism shook the reality world. And wasn’t exactly a good look for their boss, LVP. Then the news broke that her beloved restaurant Villa Blanca is closing. Now there is a continuing beef with actress Sarah Paulson. Random, but here we are.
But Lisa isn’t done being put through the ringer. Now a blast from her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills past has come back to haunt her.
Lisa Vanderpump’s life is never boring, but right now she is dealing with a lot of changes. Vanderpump Rules axed stars Kristen Doute, Stassi Schroeder, Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens for racist behavior.
In addition, like the rest of us, Lisa has been dealing with the fall-out from the coronavirus epidemic. Lisa and her husband Ken Todd own four restaurants in Los Angeles: SUR, Villa Blanca, PUMP, and TomTom. They have been closed due to Covid-19, as has Vanderpump Cocktail Garden At Caesars Palace in Los Vegas.
Remember when celebrity sex tapes were a big deal? Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee had one. Kim Kardashian and Ray J. Then, of course, there was the sex tape Paris Hilton made with her then sleazy boyfriend Rick Soloman (who also dated Pam Anderson. Small world!) Rick sold the distribution rights himself to an adult film company that released the home movie under the title “One Night in Paris.” They’re so gross clever.
Once upon a time, celebrity sex tapes were considered shameful. Today, however, we live in a world that likes to reward attention-seeking and embarrassing behavior. So much so, we don’t even remember that a sex tape made the Kardashians. Seriously people, never forget that Kim’s sex tape made Kris Jenner the momager of momagers and spawned Keeping Up with the Kardashians. That family expertly used the tape (and Kim’s relationship to Paris) as a launchpad to money and lasting (yes, lasting) fame. So, it might have been a surprise to hear Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Kyle Richards discuss Paris’ major entre into celebrity on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen this week.
