Businesswoman, TV personality, author and philanthropist, Lisa Vanderpump was born and raised in London but lived in Monte Carlo and the South of France before moving to California. She and her husband, Ken Todd, have been married for 38 years and have two children, Pandora and Max, plus the numerous pets which they also consider their babies. Vanderpump and Todd have been entrenched in the restaurant and nightclub industry since they started their partnership over 30 years ago. While living in Europe, she designed all their 30+ bars and restaurants as well as their yacht and various homes.

Vanderpump hasn’t slowed down since moving to the states. She is currently the executive producer and star of “Vanderpump Rules” on Bravo, “Overserved” on E!, “Vanderpump Dogs” on Peacock and “Pooch Perfect” on ABC. As well as being a television personality and producer, she and her husband currently own four restaurants in the U.S. In addition to her LA hot spots, the latest addition to the Vanderpump empire is Vanderpump Cocktail Garden, which opened at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas in spring 2019.

Most importantly, her philanthropic ventures are extremely close to her heart as she is a well-known ally of the LGBTQ+ community and actively fights to end animal abuse with her foundation, the Vanderpump Dog Foundation. Vanderpump and Todd launched their foundation in 2017 to help end animal abuse on both an international and domestic level. Currently, the 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation has adopted over 2,000 dogs in the U.S. to their new forever homes. She has been instrumental in helping end the dog meat trade around the world and was recently thanked on the congressional floor by Congressman Alcee Hastings (D-FL) for her aid in helping pass House Resolution 401, a formal condemnation of the dog meat trade by the United States.

Vanderpump and Todd have also been steadfast advocates for the local and national LGBTQ+ community for many years. She is a spokesperson for GLAAD, plays an active role in the Trevor Project and has led the annual AIDS Walk Los Angeles, as well as working closely with the Desert AIDS Project and the L.A Gay & Lesbian Center helping homeless LGBTQ+ youth.
