Lisa Vanderpump Reveals the Moment She Felt the Most Nervous While Filming RHOBH
There's one thing the #RHOBH and #PumpRules entrepreneur was sensitive about showing on camera.
There are very few aspects to Lisa Vanderpump's life that viewers aren't privy to. Her friendships and personal relationships are documented on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and her business life is lived in front of the Vanderpump Rules cameras. But when it came time for her daughter, Pandora Vanderpump Sabo, to get married, Lisa's maternal instinct kicked in.
"I don't care if the cameras follow me 24 hours a day. Maybe I don't want to be filmed in the shower or something [laughs]," she told AdWeek. "The only thing I was sensitive to is that when my daughter got married—I felt that I'd signed up for the show, not her."
For the most part, the Housewife/restaurateur/lifestyle entrepreneur has no regrets with how her TV life will affect her brand. "I'm never going to be the Housewife that's rolling around on the floor trying to pull somebody's weave out. That's not who I am. I do say wildly inappropriate things I think are funny—it's my British sense of humor—but I'm not somebody that's going to lose their s***. So no, I'm not worried," she explained. "My brand is me and this is an accurate depiction of my life, so I'm happy with that."
In addition to her restaurants, including SUR, which is documented on Vanderpump Rules, Lisa also has several other ventures, including a home decor line and a sangria line. But, Lisa has her eye on other products. "I'd love to have a brand of Vanderpump salad dressings. I would love to have Vanderpump frozen food," she said. "And I'd love to do a perfume. I would love a makeup line. I love everything!"
Still, Lisa has been more than willing to turn down the more unusual product requests she's received. "I think pool cleaner," she said when asked about the craziest thing she was ever asked to endorse. "What would I know about pool cleaner? I don't even know how to clean the pool!"
This November, Lisa and her SURvers will be back for more antics when Vanderpump Rules hits the airwaves again. She credits the show's recent acclaim to the magic of her SUR staff's lasting friendships. "It's just taken on a life of its own," she said. "When you get a group of people that have known each other for 10, 12 years and they work together and they live together and they date each other and all that, the stakes become much higher than when you're orchestrating a group of people that don't even know each other. And I think that's why Housewives worked in the first season. Adrienne [Maloof] lived across the road, Kyle [Richards] and I knew each other, Camille [Grammer] lived in Beverly Park as well. It was a group of women that knew each other, and I think then you become more invested in it."
