Lisa Vanderpump of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
We knew Lisa Vanderpump dabbled in acting, but we had no idea she was once a video vixen. It was revealed this week that the then future Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star turned up in the video for English synth pop outfit ABC's 1982 hit "Poison Arrow"... And she, is, fabulous.

In the clip, Lisa plays 'Samantha,' a seductress who's first seen shedding a cape and dramatically descending a staircase (we should all have such grand entrances). She ignores the urgent gaze of lead singer Martin Fry as she applies lipstick with steely determination. Tiring of his passion, she blows some type of magic powder from her compact at him, shrinking him to the size of a mouse, and traps him under a martini glass (but only after gulping the dregs with smug satisfaction). The video also boasts proto-Grecian garb, and yes, a bow and arrow.

Perez Hilton first blew Lisa's cover, telling readers, "We didn't think that this was even possible, but we just became even MORE obsessed with Lisa Vanderpump!" ABC News then dug deeper to learn that the "sassy Brit was once the muse" for the band and appeared in "several" of the group's videos.

The Bravoleb says on her website she went to drama school starting at age nine, writing, "I loved acting in many children's films and television series when I was growing up." Of course, Lisa later transitioned into the roles of mom and restaurateur, but not before leaving us with this glorious bit of synth pop fabulousness.
