Vanderpump began ballet training at the age of three when she went to Riverston School. When she turned nine years old, Lisa’s parents enrolled her in the Corona Academy drama school.
Later on, she joined the entertainment industry and by the time she was 19, the aspiring actress could afford to buy an apartment. She decided to move to Fulham, West London.
In 1973, Vanderpump made her cinematic debut at the age of 13 with the film titled A Touch of Class. A year later, she appeared in one episode of the TV live adaptation of John Halifax, Gentleman. She continued to get minor roles in various TV series.
She played Coleen Osgood on the television show Silk Stalkings on CBS and Margo Curtis on Baywatch Nights. Lisa Vanderpump later featured in a number of music videos in the 1980’s for the band ABC and Naked Eyes.
In 2010, she joined the original cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills with Kyle Richards. The reality show became her biggest project yet. In 2013, she was offered her own spin-off series Vanderpump Rules.
While she was still getting acting gigs in London, Lisa designed 26 restaurants and bars that she co-owned with her husband. After leaving London, she became a restaurateur in Los Angeles and Canada.

The London native was named Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief in 2017.

It premiered in 2021 on the streaming service Peacock and season two hasn’t been announced yet.
Net Worth and Earnings
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Lisa Vanderpump makes about $50,000 per episode of RHOBH. A lot of her wealth comes from the reality show as she is one of the original cast members.
However, it can be argued that Vanderpump’s media appearances are not her main source of income. It could be her massive restaurant business. She has owned 36 restaurants, clubs, and bars around the world. This is why her net worth is estimated to be around $90 million.
The boss lady is married to fellow entrepreneur Ken Todd. He is Lisa’s long-time business partner in her restaurant pursuits. They raised two children together and currently lives in Beverly Hills, California with their daughter Pandora and son Max.
