What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Unless it’s being filmed by Bravo!
Lisa Vanderpump is the star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and her own spinoff series Vanderpump Rules. Both of the shows have high ratings and are fan favorites. Could LVP be getting another Bravo spinoff show now? Turns out it could be happening! Lisa’s opening up her newest restaurant in Las Vegas in a couple of weeks – the Vanderpump Cocktail Garden at the Forum Shops inside Caesars Palace. Lisa told Entertainment Tonight, “When they ask you if you want to be in Vegas, that’s like the ultimate compliment. They wanted to open a cocktail garden and I think they saw the brilliant design of TomTom I worked with designer Nick Alain and my husband Ken on, and they wanted something just totally fabulous, so they offered it to me and I said, yes!”
Lisa and her business partners are in the process of hiring staff for it and one of the requirements is that “employees must be willing and able to appear on television or to be filmed while performing day to day job functions.” A lot of people are wondering if she’s getting another spinoff series that will revolve around her Las Vegas venture, or she could be filming Vanderpump Rules there. Lisa told ET that nothing is set in stone, though.
Lisa said, “Oh, lordy! That would be, like, a hot mess traveling. Well, maybe. I mean, I’m sure some of the Vanderpump Rules cast would want to work out there… so, if we get picked up for another series, I’m sure some of it will filter over there, I’m not sure.”
Lisa hasn’t offered any of the SURvers a job in Vegas, but it could happen. Scheana Marie has been splitting her time between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Lisa explained, “She would be good because she knows how I do things. She’s worked for me for so many years. So, maybe she could go over there… maybe.” However; Lisa is focused on the current season of Pump Rules!
LVP explained, “There’s definitely some surprising moments that even I go, ‘They did not do that! Yes, they did. Oh, God.’ But it’s always been like that because the friendships are so authentic, and they’re so closely entwined and they spend so much time together, even when they’re not filming, it keeps going, going, going. It’s the kind of show you could actually film 24/7, ’cause it’s not a cast that just gets together to film. They go on trips together. They’re always together. And they always, you know, they misbehave. We don’t show their best moments. We definitely show their worst.”
I could definitely see a crossover happening where Vanderpump Rules would film some scenes at the Las Vegas location! I’m sure they will show the opening of LVP’s latest venture on the show. I think it’s a great idea. I think LVP could stay on RHOBH while still doing Vanderpump Rules, plus the crossover or another spinoff. It would be a lot of traveling back and forth for her though, so filming there for Pump Rules seems more likely. Whatever the situation may be, I’m here for it!
Should Lisa get another spinoff show? Do you think there will be a crossover? Thoughts on what LVP had to say? Are you liking this season of Vanderpump Rules? Sound off below!
