Everyone Hooks Up in the Nightlife Industry, According to This Insider
#PumpRules manager Peter Madrigal offers some insight into his industry's "office" romances.
As we've seen on Vanderpump Rules, love is often in the air at SUR. Hook-ups between the SURvers are a pretty common occurrence — sometimes it works out and, well, sometimes it doesn't. But as it turns out, Lisa Vanderpump's West Hollywood establishment isn't the only place where employees are mixing business and pleasure. According to Peter Madrigal, it's actually quite common in that world.
"I don’t know if you realize or understand about how it really is the nature of the industry. It is ridiculously the nature of the industry. If I had a nickel for every single time someone comes in the restaurant and is like, 'Oh my god, Peter, this is the exactly the way things are for me in my restaurant. It’s crazy. It’s crazy how things are similar in your restaurant and my restaurant,'" the SUR manager shared with Bravo After Hours. "People are always intermingling and inter-dating and all that stuff."
And with all that "intermingling," you can bet the personal drama becomes heated at times. "How do I deal with that drama? Step by step. I think the way everyone deals with drama is very different," Peter explained. "For me, I walk away from it. I can’t deal with that. Unless it’s a very pointed argument I can’t deal with it. That being said, I had to explain myself a few times, but I’ve always wanted to take it out into the alley and talk about it and not talk about it on the floor. You don’t realize how real that is. There’s where we take breaks, that’s where we sit down, that’s where we talk about our problems. Not so much me. I’ll go out there and sit down for a minute to relax for a second, but I don’t go out there to talk about drama anymore. That does not happen. I’m above it at this point. I’m in management. That would look awful. That would look really bad."
