Lisa Vanderpump Explains Why Her Last Name Isn’t Todd

Lisa Vanderpump has made her name famous over the years. Between her restaurant PUMP, her self-titled spinoff show Vanderpump Rules, and her own alcohol line  – it’s good to be LVP.

But have you ever wondered why Lisa’s last name is Vanderpump and not Todd like her husband and kids?

Well, we’ve got the answer to this burning question.

LVP recently revealed why she kept her maiden name and never became Mrs. Todd.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star explained that when she married Ken she didn’t want to change her name to Todd because she thought Vanderpump sounded better.

“Well, when I got married Ken had already been married before. He was only married for a couple of years. I felt that Vanderpump was a much nicer name than Todd, sorry no disrespect to my husband. Also, his ex-wife hadn’t changed her name so she was still Todd so I was like you’re not going to go around the world making Mrs. Todd’s out of people so I will stay a Vanderpump,” Lisa explained.

Adding, “I knew my own mind at 21 so I never actually changed my name. I never changed my passport, didn’t change anything. So, I was always Lisa Vanderpump. And the kids have my name and Ken’s name so they’re both Vanderpump Todd.”

So, how did Ken feel about LVP keeping her maiden name?

According to LVP, “He would never question something like that which is a testament to who he is. I think if you’re a secure man than it’s not going to bother you.”

In fact, the interview Ken, who was off-camera,  joked: “I might change my name to Vanderpump.”

See what else Lisa had to say about her marriage to Ken and how he handles her being in the spotlight.
