Lisa Vanderpump Sells Restaurant Amidst Growing Financial Woes

by at . Comments

Lisa Vanderpump was sued for sexual harassment last month after an ex-employee at her Villa Blanca restaurant claimed Lisa did nothing to stop male staff from behaving inappropriately.

The former waitress was awarded $100,000, and at the time there was talk that the six-figure setback could force Vanderpump to close her restaurants and scale back her lavish lifestyle.

Since then, Vanderpump has denied that she's broke, but today it was announced that she's decided to sell Villa Blanca for an undisclosed sum.

Lisa still owns two other restaurants, and leaked Bravo documents reveal that Vanderpump makes $500,000 a season for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills -  more than any cast member except for Brandi Glanville.

Even so, like all of the Housewives she spends lavishly in order to keep up appearances, and sources close to Lisa and her husband Ken say that the Vanderpumps frequently find themselves asset rich but cash poor. 

It's not known at this time whether or not Lisa will be forced to sell Pump or Sur (which serves as the setting for the Bravo series Vanderpump Rules), but insiders say the outlook doesn't look good for her financial future. 

We're guessing we won't be hearing anything more about Lisa quitting The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills any time soon.
