Lisa Vanderpump’s Hollywood restaurant was targeted by a would-be burglar.
The good news is that the burglary failed and no real damage was done, and the former RHOBH star said that she is not seeking to press charges.
Lisa Vanderpump not pressing charges for attempted burglary
Vanderpump’s husband Ken spoke to TMZ about the attempted burglary at the PUMP restaurant, which features on Bravo series Vanderpump Rules.
A man wearing a blue face mask and a backpack reportedly used shears to try to cut the lock and get into the restaurant.
However, three eyewitnesses all called the police and the alleged burglar was caught before he could break in and get away with anything.
This all happened at on Sunday night around 7 p.m. PST. The deputies were there within minutes, with seven police cars and a helicopter showing up.
The massive police response wasn’t because Vanderpump is famous, but because the man was seen in the area earlier, and law enforcement was already on the lookout.
The restaurant itself was closed since the California shelter-at-home orders went into effect, and Vanderpump will not press charges. “He was desperate for a Pump-tini,” Ken joked. “We can’t blame him.”
Lisa Vanderpump during pandemic
Lisa Vanderpump and her husband were safely at home while the attempted burglary was taking place, as they continue to quarantine during the coronavirus pandemic.
Luckily for fans, Andy Cohen is continuing to bring Lisa, and other stars of the Bravo shows into fans’ homes via virtual reunions.
In a recent talk with Lisa, she admitted that she wouldn’t be leaving her home Villa Rosa anytime soon for a new residence. Even if there wasn’t a pandemic, she loves where she lives.
Meanwhile, she revealed other Vanderpump Rules castmembers are cashing in on their nice pay to upgrade their living situations.
Tom and Katie Schwartz have an impressive new property, where their kitchen reportedly costs more than most people’s homes, clocking in at $300,000 for that room alone. Lisa said if she did move anywhere, she would move in with them.
Vanderpump Rules airs Tuesday nights at 9/8c on Bravo.
