If you’re a regular reader, you know my fixation on all things Real Housewives. In all the franchises, I tend to have a favorite, sometimes two, and of RHOBH, I’m partial to Lisa Vanderpump. If you’re also a fan, then you’re aware of Lisa’s never-ending love for all animals. The gorgeous Beverly Hills mansion she shares with her husband, Ken Todd, and their menagerie of furry and feathered children is all the proof you need.
While her most well-known fur baby is Giggy, the Alopecia-stricken Pomeranian. in recent episodes of RHOBH she added two more to the herd. As a gift for his 70th birthday, Lisa presented husband Todd with two miniature horses. The pair of little mares, I believe to have been named Diamonds and Rosé were also recently presented with a custom miniature stable made by a friend of the couple, Mohamed Hadid.
In an earlier episode, Lisa explained that Todd had once been an avid rider and Polo player. Due to complications from hip replacement surgery, he’s no longer able to ride, but anyone who has horses in their blood, knows the fever never goes away.
My admiration for Lisa certainly begins with her devotion to all animals, and many causes in support of. Any time you scroll through Twitter newsfeeds, it’s common to see her re-tweeting requests for help needed for animals of all kinds. The woman knows how to hustle, with a chain of successful bars and restaurants under her Hermès belt, and a handful of assorted side gigs, I honestly wonder if she ever sleeps. Watching her on RHOBH and Vanderpump Rules, she’s a well-balanced powerhouse, who still makes time to travel and spend with her family and friends.
There’s an old saying about money; “save a third, spend a third, give a third away,” and from a tv viewers perspective, she seems to follow the same advice. What she is spending and giving away, is going to a lengthy list of charities and philanthropic organizations. Kudos Lisa, your generosity is much needed and I’m sure appreciated.
