As the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues to change daily life, many businesses have been required to close to prevent the spread of the virus. On March 17, it was announced that Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurants, SUR, Tom Tom, Villa Blanca, and Pump, would be temporarily closing their doors. Now, the Vanderpump Rules matriarch has shared an update on her personal life.
In an Instagram post from March 22, Lisa shared some inspiring words with her followers. She opened up about how she's contributing to relief efforts, and what she and her husband, Ken Todd, will be up to at home.
“I am in shock at what has happened in the world in a few short weeks… I know how lucky I am to be here safe in my house and healthy, and my thoughts and prayers really do go out to each of you affected by this horrific pandemic,” she wrote. “I know so many people have lost income, or have caught this virus, or are working on the frontlines to combat it, and I am so deeply grateful for all the people helping in this crisis, from first responders, health workers, scientists, nurses, doctors, to grocery store employees, delivery workers, pharmacy employees, etc.”
“I urge anyone who can to donate to a local food bank, or an organization working to combat this coronavirus,” Lisa continued. “I will be making a donation to LA Foodbank and Midnight Mission. Please stay home if you can and help flatten the curve and allow our society to try and catch up with this virus. In the meantime, I will try to be posting things that will hopefully take your mind off things, or peeks into our pretty boring isolation home life of me trying not to strangle Ken daily.”
