Businesswoman, TV personality, author, and philanthropist, Lisa Vanderpump hails from London, England. Lisa and her husband Ken Todd have been entrenched in the restaurant and nightclub industry since they started their partnership over 30 years ago. Their three very successful restaurants in Los Angeles are just a peek into their joint ventures. Lisa Vanderpump has most recently become known for the hit Bravo TV series, "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." Her unique mix of sparkling glamour and down-to-earth style has appealed to thousands of viewers.
Fans can also catch Lisa on her spinoff show, that she co-executive produces, “Vanderpump Rules", which centers around her West Hollywood eatery SUR, as well as her Beverly Hills favorite Villa Blanca, and latest culinary endeavor PUMP. Lisa has started her own tabletop collection “Vanderpump Beverly Hills,” created her Vanderpump Estate Jewelry Collection, a pet accessories line at VanderpumpPets.com and has her signature Vanderpump Vodka, Vanderpump Rosé and LVP Sangria in retail and on-premise outlets both domestically and internationally.
Most importantly, Lisa’s philanthropic ventures are extremely close to her heart. In October 2015, Vanderpump organized a peaceful protest march against The Yulin Dog Meat Festival and launched StopYulinForever.org. The march went from MacArthur Park to the Chinese Consulate General in Los Angeles and started a movement to end the abuse, torture and slaughter of dogs worldwide. Lisa went on to address Congress about the same issues and is currently producing a documentary to draw attention to the barbaric practice and bring it to an end. She was thrilled to launch The Vanderpump Dog Foundation to help end animal abuse on both an international and domestic level, which opens the doors to its first rescue and adoption center this month.
Lisa and husband Ken have also been steadfast advocates for the LGBTQ community for many years. Lisa is a spokesperson for GLAAD and has worked closely with the Desert AIDS Project, The Trevor Project, and the L.A Gay & Lesbian Center helping homeless LGBT youth. Lisa was a recipient of the Ally Leadership Award from Equality California, an LGBT rights organization, in 2015. Lisa has also conducted fundraising for Susan G. Komen in honor of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness month, and recently led this year’s 30th annual AIDS Walk Los Angeles, cutting the starting ribbon for over 25,000 walkers. In addition, in 2015 Lisa was named Monarch of the Krewe of Orpheus Mardi Gras celebration; addressed the United Nations Concert for the EBOLA effort; and was recognized by the State of California Assembly as “Woman of the Year.” Lisa also spent 2018 at the helm of Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine, as Editor-in-Chief.
Lisa and Ken have been married for 32 years and have two children. Lisa has a great passion for life and she has tried to instill that in her children; Pandora 30 and Max 25. As Lisa said, "I’ve really adored being a mother; my children have grown so I’ve filled my nest with 8 four legged furry friends. They are the loves of my life.” Lisa and Ken currently reside in Beverly Hills with their 2 miniature ponies, 8 dogs, 7 swans and a variety of other animals.
