Between her brother’s passing and the “puppygate” drama on this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Lisa Vanderpump has had what she described on tonight’s episode as a “horrible time.” So what’s going to help boost her spirits? According to the Tom Tom owner, it's a new kitchen.
And it's not just any kitchen! This is going to be an all-white, sparkly, glamorous kitchen, and oh yeah, there’s going to be some pink in there, too.
“I want this and I deserve this and I’ve had a horrible time,” Lisa told Ken. “If I’ve learned anything of late, it’s to do what makes you happy. Surround yourself by people and things that make you happy.”
A $300,000 kitchen will certainly go a long way toward making Lisa happier.
At the Cooper Pacific Kitchen showroom, Lisa pointed out to Ken all the details she wants in her kitchen — polished nickel taps, marble counters and a big white sink among them — while explaining what she dislikes about her current space. “It’s depressing in my kitchen, it’s dark,” she explained.

Like any good wife who knows how to get her husband to see the light, Lisa ultimately pandered to Ken’s observation of the bottom line. “It’s an investment, because it’s adding to the value of the house. It’s a little bit over $200,000 one might say,” she said, with the sales associate adding, “It could be up from that a bit.” A bit… or an additional $100,000.
“Somebody’s going to come in the house in the unlikely event that we sell it and they’re going to say that I’ve got to have this house because this kitchen is so bloody amazing that I don’t mind paying an extra $300,000 for it,” she explained to Ken.
We can't wait to see the end result!
