Why does Lisa Vanderpump have our vote for the #1 queen of the Housewives? First of all, she’s British – that alone makes her royalty. But she’s also an accomplished entrepreneur, philanthropist, actress and businesswoman.
Vanderpump isn’t just a queen, she’s a hustler. She’s been in the spotlight her entire life, performing as a child actor and in a handful of 80’s music videos and television spots before being cast in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in 2010. She’s owned over 30 restaurants and clubs – including the popular SUR and PUMP in West Hollywood – and is an avid supporter of LGBT and animal rights. She even runs Vanderpump Dog Foundation – a canine rescue center and grooming service that will (safely!) paint your pup pink.
She left the series in 2019, but Vanderpump is still the reigning queen of the housewives – and maybe even all of Los Angeles!
