As the first introduced housewife on “The Real Housewife of Beverly Hills”, Lisa Vanderpump is revealing her thoughts on the latest addition to the cast.
Speaking with ET Canada’s Keshia Chante at her new restaurant TomTom Bar in West Hollywood, the reality star maven and restaurateur opens up about actress Denise Richards joining the cast.
“I don’t know anything yet,” the “Vanderpump Rules” star initially admits when asked if she has any news about Richards.
The star goes on to reveal that she did, however, encounter the same incident of theft that Richards’ ex-husband Charlie Sheen had undergone when his car was stolen and driven off a cliff in 2009.
“The only thing we really have in common is Charlie Sheen’s car and my car went off the cliff at the same time that night that was nine years ago,” she says. “I’m sure we have plenty else in common, but we don’t have Charlie Sheen.”
Meanwhile, Vanderpump has continued to build her TV and restaurant empire with TomTom Bar marking her 35th restaurant in the world. But it’s her first restaurant with “Vanderpump Rules” stars, Tom Schwartz and Tom Sandoval.
“I think that Tom Sandoval had worked with me a long time and I like to see progress and I like to see evolution,” Vanderpump says of her decision to partner with the reality TV stars.
Addressing Schwartz, she adds, “He’s one of the most likeable, lovable characters, so I think that the fact they are best friends and I thought of the name TomTom – I thought what a great kind of new energy it would bring.”
