Lisa Vanderpump, one of the fave stars of Bravo TV‘s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, is REPORTEDLY getting her own spin-off TV series. Hot on the heels of the news that Camille Grammer was NOT asked back for season 3 of RHOBH comes a new report by Life & Style magazine that Lisa will get a spin-off show focusing on her West Hollywood restaurant SUR. As you may recall, we heard back in January that Lisa secretly filmed the pilot episode for this spin-off show. HMMM. No one is confirming this news officially … but word on the street is that the show is going to happen.
Get ready to see more of Lisa Vanderpump on TV! Life & Style can exclusively reveal that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star’s spin-off is happening! “Bravo has confirmed Lisa’s own show,” an insider tells Life & Style. “It’s going to be about her restaurant Sur Lounge and feature the staff and happenings there.” “A key character in the show is going to be Scheana Marie, the woman who hooked up with John Mayer and Eddie Cibrian and works at Lisa’s restaurant,” a second source tells Life & Style. As if that weren’t enough drama, Lisa is also returning to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. “Yes, she’s also returning for season three of Housewives,” the insider confirms. “She’ll be juggling both.”
SO, keep in mind … the quote “Bravo has confirmed” comes from a source, NOT from Bravo itself. That being said, I totally believe this spin-off is happening. Lisa is a wildly popular castmember … like Bethenny Frankel before her, she really has the charisma to not only carry her own show but can also do double duty on The Real Housewives. I’d watch a Lisa spin-off show, wouldn’t you?
UPDATE: Woo Hoo!! Bravo has officially confirmed this Vanderpump spin-off series:
“SUR” (working title)
Best known as one of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Lisa Vanderpump opens the salacious kitchen doors of her exclusive Hollywood restaurant and lounge, SUR. Declaring it the sexiest establishment she’s ever owned and “the place you take your mistress,” Lisa rules over her lively and mischievous staff with a platinum fist.
