Lisa Vanderpump is FINALLY addressing NeNe Leakes’ claim that she stole the idea for PUMP from her!
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star responded to NeNe’s allegation at the season 9 premiere party.
“It’s the first thing I’ve heard about it in six years, so it’s been a surprise,” Vanderpump told Us Weekly. “It’s my 35th restaurant. It’s from the same landlord as the landlord at SUR. It’s 200 yards down the road.”
Meanwhile, sources tell Life & Style that it’s not surprising Vanderpump doesn’t want to own up to stealing the idea for PUMP from the Real Housewives of Atlanta star.
In fact, this insider says that LVP needs to own what she did and apologize to NeNe!
“People from all over the world come to Pump. Lisa regularly holds court in the outdoor dining room, signing autographs for her fans,” an insider explains. “It’s not only a gorgeous space, but it’s also profitable and always packed. All things said it was a brilliant business decision.”
Adding, “It was a low-down dirty move on Lisa’s part and she needs to own what she did. NeNe wants an apology.”
