Bad news for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump! Her restaurant Villa Blanca has to pay $100,000 to a former waitress who filed a lawsuit against the restaurant after she claimed a manager sexually harassed her. Karina Bustillos says a manager attempted to kiss her, would call her names, and even grabbed her by the wrists. Karina revealed she had complained to Lisa Vanderpump about the manager but Lisa did nothing and was later forced to quit.
Now TMZ is reporting Lisa will have to pay her $100,000 in punitive damages saying,
“Jurors awarded Karina Bustillos over $6,000 last week after hearing testimony that a manager manhandled her, called her foul names and made sexual advances. But what’s weird … the jury did not place any liability on the manager, making it seem like they didn’t believe her. So it’s puzzling why Villa Blanca got nailed. And now it’s double-puzzling why the jury gave Karina punitives. “
Lisa says she will appeal the verdict and took to twitter to add how she is losing faith after this mess.
I guess that’s what happens when you run a restaurant and allow younger people to create all sorts of drama! Do you think Lisa should be paying anything?
