Lisa Vanderpump Reminds Everyone of Her Secret Past with Naomi Campbell

Long before LVP was slaying it on Vanderpump Rules, she was dishing it out on another small-screen project.

As we all know by now, Lisa Vanderpump is the hostess with the mostest shade as the queen bee on Vanderpump Rules. As the boss over at SUR, LVP rules the roost with great ease and unending glam. But as it turns out, she's been ready for her close-up for years.

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo Tuesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.  

Decades before she started documenting her personal and professional lives on Bravo, she dabbled in acting. And one of her early projects as a teen in England was on a series alongside the equally-fab Naomi Campbell.

LVP spoke about working with the supermodel in an interview with W Magazinerecalling appearing alongside her on the short-lived children's TV series, Kids. "Naomi was always very forthright at a very young age," the Vanderpump Rules boss told the magazine. "She's a little spitfire."

LVP's acting credits don't begin and end with Kids, though. Around that same time, in the '70s, she also appeared on several other projects including John Halifax, Gentleman, Katy, and Killer's Moon. She even continued acting in the '80s, including a stint as a music video vixen in ABC's "Poison Arrow" music video. Her IMDB credits continue to roll on right through the '90s, during which she made appearances on shows like Baywatch Nights and Silk Stalkings.

Eventually LVP found her greatest role playing her fierce and fabulous self. And for that we are all thankful.
