‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Spoilers: Lisa Vanderpump’s Restaurants Are Being Sued For Unpaid Produce Bill
The produce company claims that in Spring 2020, payments stopped coming in from LVP’s restaurants, which is right around the time quarantine began, and restaurants were forced to close their doors.
In the lawsuit, WCP says it got its last payment from Villa Blanca in March 2020 for $8,890.10 … while PUMP forked over $9,144.70.
Ken has gone on the record to say he wasn’t aware of the lawsuit but said he would pay WCP ASAP if his restaurants owe the company money. He also noted that this past year has been tough for everyone in the restaurant business.
Though PUMP is set to reopen soon, it looks like Villa Blanca will be closed for good. “If the landlord had been willing to renegotiate and the lease wasn’t ending, we would have reopened, but unfortunately with Coronavirus, the situation was beyond our control,” Lisa revealed to the Daily Mail in July 2020.
With that said, there is some good news, and that’s because her other restaurant SUR has officially reopened its doors after temporarily closing for nearly three months. “SUR is reopening its doors just in time to celebrate Valentine together!” the restaurant’s Instagram account announced on February 8. “Book your table starting February 11th.”
