The drama is nonstop for former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump. First, a good portion of her Vanderpump Rules cast were fired for racist behaviors. Then her restaurant Villa Blanca recently closed down, and her other restaurants are still shut down due to the coronavirus. Lisa should have kept SUR open for takeout; they would have made buckets of cash from fired Pump Rules cast member Stassi Schroeder drowning her sorrows in fried goat cheese balls.
The drama does not end there, however. Last year, actress Sarah Paulson did an interview and commented on which Real Housewives show she would like to be a part of. For those who are curious, it was Real Housewives of New York. Sarah, there’s an open spot for you now that Tinsley Mortimer is gone! In that same interview, she also said she met Lisa once and she wasn’t that nice to her. Ouch! Well, Sarah recently mentioned her story about Lisa again, and this time Lisa took to Twitter to sound off about it.
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.
Back in 2019, Sarah Paulson caused quite the stir among Lisa Vanderpump‘s army of
trolls, err I mean fans. Taking Vanity Fair‘s famed lie detector test, the Emmy-winning actress spilled the tea that the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star “wasn’t that nice” to her when they met.
Now, in a new interview during Watch What Happens Live, Sarah is doubling down on her assertion and opening up about what it felt like to have the LVP army come after 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.
The economy may be reopening again, but many businesses are still closing their doors or laying off workers due to the Coronavirus pandemic. And that includes businesses and employees of Bravo reality TV stars too. Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump hoped her restaurants would survive the shut down. Vanderpump Rules stars Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz even helped raise money for Lisa’s out of work staff.
And now another RHOBH star is feeling the effects of the pandemic. Anyone who watches the show knows that Kyle Richard’s husband, Mauricio Umansky, owns a successful real estate company called The Agency. We all know this because Kyle wears Agency swag every episode, and Mauricio has a giant party at their home celebrating the company at least once a season. And unfortunately for Mauricio, the party seems to be over.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been on a small hiatus and I miss it. Before the season even began, there were rumors of it being a snooze fest. I for one, have seen nothing of the sort. Garcelle Beauvais has been a stellar addition to the mix. Sutton Stracke is, in my opinion, bat shit crazy. Speaking of, how about Denise Richards’ husband, Aaron Phypers? Yeah, cuckoo for cocoa puffs but it’s been fun to watch.
But one person I have never been on board with when it comes to RHOBH is Dorit Kemsley. There’s the fake accent. Plus desperation to be part of Lisa Vanderpump’s inner circle. Not to mention all the money troubles. I’ve always considered her a grifter. But Dorit isn’t letting any of that stand in her way of living her best life. Who cares if it’s a lie?
Vanderpump Rules viewers have watched James Kennedy struggle with his sobriety and in his relationships with his co-stars and friends. The beginning of Season 8 of Pump Rules was tough to watch because of the way James was treating his ride-or-die chick, Raquel Leviss.
He sent Raquel nasty text messages, calling her a “slut” and a “whore” because she nearly missed his DJ appearance at TomTom during Pride. James insisted he was sober during the gig, but that wasn’t true. Not cool, James. Not cool.
One word suffices in describing what it was like to watch David Foster and Yolanda Hadid together on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: insufferable. Oh my love, my king. Let me change out of my white jeans and into an embarrassing maid’s costume. Let me serve you a meal with extra lemon as though I am a peon. In my imagination, this is exactly what Yolanda’s inner monologue sounded like when she was married to David.
They were married for four years, but together nine years total before calling it quits in December 2015. As annoying as Yolanda was, David was equal parts narcissist. (Never forget how cringe-worthy it was when he shushed their guests while playing the piano). In Yolanda’s last season on RHOBH she was simultaneously battling Lyme Disease and fighting off rumors spread by Lisa Rinna, Kyle Richards, and Lisa Vanderpump that she was faking it. In spite of this, she managed to hide her separation from David a majority of the season. It wasn’t until the reunion aired that she announced their divorce. Yo claimed that David left her because he was fed up with her illness. Now, he’s telling his side.
