Lisa Vanderpump was born in London, England on September 15, 1960. There isn’t too much known about her early life, except for the fact that she was already a full-time drama student by the age of nine.
Lisa is a committed wife. In 1982, at just the age of 21, she met 36-year-old Ken Todd. They were married just six weeks after their initial meeting. She currently has two children, Pandora and Max, who is adopted. Lisa also has a stepson, Warren, who is a London property developer. Lisa and her family presently reside in Montecito, California.
As a child, Lisa appeared in numerous television shows and motion pictures, including “A Touch of Class,” “Katy” and “Killer’s Moon.” Between the 1970s and 1990s, Lisa maintained her career by receiving small roles in various television series, like “Silk Stalkings” and “Baywatch Nights.” Moreover, she was a prominent feature of an array of 1980s music videos for the bands ABC and Naked Eyes.
Lisa’s biggest claim to fame in the world of entertainment is the hit Bravo reality series “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” She made her debut on the show in 2010. Lisa was so popular and the breakout star on the show that she began her own spin-off of the program called “Vanderpump Rules.” The series surrounds her life as a West Hollywood restaurateur.
The dramatic actress is known for her experience in the restaurant business, too. Prior to relocating to the United States, Lisa designed 26 bars and restaurants in the London area she co-owned with her husband. They now own two restaurants in the state of California.
Lisa has branched off into other areas over the past few years.
In 2011, she authored the book “Simply Divine: A Guide to Easy, Elegant and Affordable Entertaining.” Lisa is now a contributing writer to the Beverly Hills Lifestyle magazine. In 2014, she released her own line of homewares called The Vanderpump Beverly Hills Collection. In that same year, she participated in the sixteenth season of “Dancing with the Stars.” Recently, she starred in a Lady Gaga music video.
We estimate that Lisa Vanderpump’s net worth is $65 million (2016).
So how much is $65 million really?
$65 million can buy you nearly three million dishes of Tiger Prawns, Asparagus & Arugula risotto at Lisa’s Villa Blanca restaurant. Interested in some reading material? Well, you can buy her book in paperback more than four million times! But if you’re heading to the beautiful city of London then be sure to save some money to visit at least one of the restaurants she designed.
