Life is closer to being all diamonds and rosé for Lisa Vanderpump.
The former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star said she owed a small $250 filing fee to the state from 2016 amid reports her restaurant, Pump, would be indefinitely “suspended” due to alleged tax issues.
“So important, worthy of a headline…said no one ever. Geez,” she sarcastically tweeted on Sunday, adding that “10;000 restaurants have closed for good….so sad.”
The 60-year-old restaurateur — who owns the Los Angeles hot spot with her husband Ken Todd — announced on Friday that the restaurant was set to reopen on March 17. It was forced to shut last March due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
“Ok a big week coming, it’s been a long year, but filming three shows has definitely kept me busy, I am fully vaccinated many of our staff are in process, numbers are way down,” she wrote on Friday with the news of the reopening. “Overserved airs on E Mar 18th it’s so much fun lol, Pump opens 17th. And our rescue has now saved 2200 dog [sic].”
Vanderpump’s other West Hollywood restaurant, SUR, is now open for outdoor dining but “Vanderpump Rules” fans shouldn’t expect to see their favorite SUR-vers just yet.
Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix told Page Six earlier this month that production is working out the kinks for a new season of the Bravo series amid the COVID-19 restrictions.
“Obviously, they want to do another season and they have every plan and intention of doing that, but it’s just because of the industry that we’re in, they don’t want to see us just like sitting in our houses,” Sandoval said.
Madix added that the couple “wants everyone to be safe” when filming picks up, “so we’re kind of just waiting and seeing.”
Meanwhile, TomTom — Vanderpump’s restaurant with Sandoval and Tom Schwartz — is still shuttered as well.
