Lisa Vanderpump’s Restaurants Sued For Nearly $100k In Unpaid Produce Bills!

It’s no secret that Lisa Vanderpump‘s West Hollywood-based restaurant empire has struggled to stay afloat during the pandemic like thousands of restaurants across the country.

Now, the restauranteur turned reality star is facing another major headache.

Per TMZ, PUMP, and Villa Blanca, two of Lisa and Ken Todd‘s restaurants are being sued over failed produce bills. Before both restaurants shutting down in 2020 due to COVID-19, they received produce and vegetables from West Central Produce.

Now, West Central Produce is suing the eateries for past unpaid deliveries. In documents from the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, “WCP says it got its last payment from Villa Blanca in March 2020 for $8,890.10 … while PUMP forked over $9,144.70. That’s a ton o’ veggies!”

The produce company claims that in Spring 2020, payments stopped coming in from LVP’s restaurants, which is right around the time quarantine began, and restaurants were forced to close their doors. The company claims they are owed “just under $100k,” which they are suing for “plus interest.”

Lisa and Ken shut down Villa Blanca for good in Summer 2020. However, according to the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, PUMP will re-open eventually.

Meanwhile, Ken told TMZ he wasn’t aware of the lawsuit but said he would pay WCP ASAP if his restaurants owe the company money. He also noted that this past year has been tough for everyone in the restaurant business.

Overserved with Lisa Vanderpump premieres March 18 at 9 pm ET on E! It’s unclear when or if Bravo will begin filming for season 9 of Vanderpump Rules. 

Thoughts on this all? Are you surprised Lisa’s restaurants are being hit with a lawsuit? Could this be a simple oversight? Sound off below!
