Lisa Vanderpump

As a member of the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, writer for Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine, and famed restaurateur Lisa “Pinky” Vanderpump sure does have a lot of shoes to fill. Along with her husband Ken Todd, Lisa recently opened their newest fine dining restaurant, Villa Blanca in Beverly Hills. This is the pair’s second restaurant, following the success of SUR in West Hollywood. After spending a total of 14 years in LA, with a flare for style and delicious cuisine, Lisa certainly knows what’s haute and what’s not.
