Lisa Vanderpump revealed a few facts about herself during a recent interview.
While chatting with Larry King this week on his talk show, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member opened up about her regrets, her aspirations, and her ongoing philanthropic efforts in Los Angeles and around the world.
“I think I would probably have a lot of fun in New York… Maybe Bethenny,” she considered.
“Maybe not having more children,” Lisa explained when asked about her biggest regrets on Larry King Now. “Also, I think not having the confidence I have now, especially when it comes to inspiring women through public speaking when I was younger.”
While Lisa is already quite busy with her four restaurants, including the newly opened TomTom, and her two reality shows, she hopes to take on even more activities in the next 10 years including politics.
“Maybe more involved politically than I am now, maybe to carry on writing and to actually create a kinder, more compassionate world,” she said of her future plans.
“Nine years ago, I think there was a certain connotation that came with doing reality television. As you know, I was very present at Villa Blanca and going about my daily business. I was approached two or three times and I thought, ‘I don’t know. I’m not conflictual. I don’t think I’m right for this kind of scenario.’ But then I got excited about it. I went to the interview and I knew a couple of the women. Adrienne Maloof lived across the road from me. Camille Grammer was a neighbor and Kyle Richards, we were friends,” she recalled.
“It’s an unbelievable journey,” Lisa added. “I really am thankful that I took the opportunity.”
As she continues to see success on the business front, Lisa and her husband, Ken Todd, are also doing their best to give back to their community.
“I think we’ve always had a philanthropic aspect to any part of our business, my husband and I because that’s just how we feel about giving back to a certain extent. Villa Blanca, for example, cooks for the homeless every week. Everybody should have a part in the community and doing something,” Lisa revealed. “In the public eye, I believe you have a social responsibility to really support the causes you believe in. Reality television has given me that platform.”
