Lisa Vanderpump has gone into further detail about the whirlwind headlines dominating the “Vanderpump Rules” world.
The reality series has dominated headlines for the past month after the revelation Tom Sandoval had been dating Raquel Leviss. Sandoval has been in a relationship with Ariana Madix for nearly a decade!
The ‘Scandoval’ affair had gone on for seven months.
Sandoval and Leviss have both publicly spoken out on ‘Scandoval,’ and Vanderpump recently appeared on Andy Cohen‘s “Watch What Happens Live” in the wake of the breaking news.
On Wednesday afternoon, Vanderpump took to Twitter to set the record straight on Sandoval and Leviss’ affair and reassured her followers that Pump Restaurant would not be closing its doors amid reports of the eatery losing its liquor license.

According to Eater Los Angeles per Us Weekly, Pump Restaurant lost its liquor license on March 8th, and would be temporarily closed a few days later. The outlet also states there had been no mention of the closure on any of Pump Restaurant’s social media accounts.
Sandoval’s own restaurant has been hit with negative publicity since the news had broken. Unhappy patrons have since bombarded the Franklin Village bar with negative reviews.

The 62-year-old “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” alumna took to her Twitter on Wednesday to respond to rumors concerning the fate of Pump Restaurant.
“Ok no…,” she began her tweet. “#PumpRestraunt will be open as normal… #fake-news Oh and no I didn’t pay cast members to sleep together for ratings #pumprules they do that on their own… #fake-news Have a beautiful day everybody,” Vanderpump’s tweet concluded.
Earlier today, Vanderpump had spoken to Entertainment Tonight, giving the publication further insight.
“We’ve been in the Pump location for 10 years, have a great relationship with the landlord, and are currently discussing resigning our lease over the next few months, but haven’t made a decision and will be open tonight, and come by and have a Pumptini,” she concluded.
“Lisa, you’ve got this big target on your back…thirsty hyenas are after you AGAIN! Watch out!!!,” a fan responded.
“But you did shag Ken at the bar, correct? Probably was his birthday [laughing emojis] Love you, Lisa! Still my favorite Housewife,” another Twitter user wrote.
“Thank God!!! I had reservations there for my Bachelorette party at the end of the month,” a bride-to-be responded.
Many of Vanderpump’s followers referenced Teddi Mellencamp in their responses; the ‘RHOBH’ alumna had given her thoughts to Melissa Gorga on her podcast, “On Display.”
Mellencamp said, “Lisa probably paid Raquel to do this. “She’s going to say the same points I’ve been saying, like, ‘Listen, [Sandoval and Madix] weren’t in a good place for a long time, he’s needs weren’t met, [Sandoval and Leviss] fell in love. They couldn’t help themselves.” (via Celeb Buzz, per Us Weekly.)
Celeb Buzz also noted the episode of “On Display” had been recorded prior to Vanderpump’s “Watch What Happens Live” appearance.
“Teddi is so desperate to be relevant, it’s pathetic,” a user tweeted.
“John Mellencamp’s daughter is just jealous of you,” another responded. “Pay her no mind [crown emoji]”
“Thank you for addressing the fake news,” another fan responded. “it’s hard but sometimes the Queen must throw a few tomatoes to the thirsty from her chariot- Teddi Bore needs a hobby.”
“Someone really needs attention and loves to insert herself in things that have nothing to do with her teddi really needs to give it up noone wants to hear her opinion,” another user weighed in.
As of this writing, no air date for the “Vanderpump Rules” 10th season reunion has been revealed.
