Legendary actress and singer Liza Minnelli (otherwise known as Lucille 2 to Arrested Development fans) celebrated an important milestone by visiting Lisa Vanderpump's L.A. hotspot, Pump, over the weekend. Liza had just completed a successful stint in rehab for substance abuse, her rep confirmed, when she showed up for dinner with a mystery date on Sunday night. She was seen in good spirits, according to photos surfacing online, and cheerfully posing for photos with fans.
Pump is the newest of Lisa's restaurant empire and has seen a surge of celebrity clientele this month. On Friday, Lady Gaga dropped in to have dinner with Lisa herself and, according to Lisa's tweets, enjoy conversations about being #dogcrazy. Earlier this month, Countess Luann de Lesseps stopped by to have "dinner, drinks and giggles with my favorite - Lady Lisa."
Both Pump and Lisa's original restaurant, SUR, were recently honored by OpenTable as one of the Top 100 Hot Spot Restaurants in America. Lisa has credited The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills with raising the profile of her three establishments, which also includes Villa Blanca. "I think it was beneficial," she's said of having the restaurants appear on both RHOBH and, of course, Vanderpump Rules. "We get a lot of people from all over the country and all over the world—so absolutely it was a good move."
