A jury ordered The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Lisa Vanderpump to pay $100,000 in a lawsuit brought forward by former employee Karina Bustillos.
Lisa Vanderpump was shocked to learn the verdict in a sexual harassment lawsuit brought forth by Bustillos, a waitress at her restaurant Villa Blanca.
Bustillos went to court after she was allegedly “manhandled” by another staff member on Lisa Vanderpump’s payroll - the manager, Michael Govia.
A jury decided to hold Villa Blanca at fault and has hereby ordered Bustillos be paid $100,000 in punitive damages as a result of the alleged harassment.
Lisa Vanderpump’s attorney, outraged at the verdict, plans to file an appeal, saying “We are in absolute shock at the amount of punitive damages that were awarded.
