Sure, Tom Tom's doors are officially open, but on the current season of Vanderpump Rules, fans are getting the chance to see for themselves all the hard work that went into creating the establishment. And, as we even saw last season, it hasn't always been smooth sailing as Tom Schwartz and Tom Sandoval attempt to create a brand and vision alongside Lisa Vanderpump.
On the Season 7 premiere, they bumped heads with Lisa about her daughter Pandora Vanderpump Sabo's involvement in creating cocktails for the hotspot. Lisa wanted her daughter to get involved to help speed things along, in her opinion. But in an interview during the episode, Sandoval said, "Lisa specifically asked me to please handle all the cocktails. So why is Pandora, who has never worked a bartending shift in her life, overseeing this cocktail list? I mean why do you even want to call it Tom Tom?" (More from the conversation in the clip above.)
Well, Pandora, who fans have seen work with and for her mogul parents over the years, was quick to defend her credentials on Twitter: "Oh I haven’t bartended? That’s news to me. I’m also a Certified Specialist of Wine, [and] spirits [and] own a liquor company, and have created cocktails for over 15 magazines. Also, I worked alongside one of the best mixologists in the US. But keep making excuses!"
