Lisa Vanderpump Keeps It Cool and Classy At GLAAD Top Chef Invasion


A long-time supporter of GLAAD‘s charitable work and message of love and acceptance, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump radiated positivity and enthusiasm at the GLAAD Hancock Park: Top Chef Invasion, where the star acted as a celebrity judge. Vanderpump has worked tirelessly with the LGBT community and calls on the heterosexual community to join the fight. “I have a very strong opinion that you need the heterosexual voice to support this organization because I also work with the homeless a lot and a lot of the homeless youths are LGBT kids who were just thrown out in the street,” she said. “We need the heterosexual voice to reach out and to educate heterosexual parents that really don’t know how to deal with this dilemma.”

In her trademark hot pink, Vanderpump looked absolutely stunning. She called on an old standby to get her looking in top form for the event. “I’m always a follower of the pink, so this is Roberto Cavalli,” she said. “Cavalli and pink, you can’t go wrong.”

Vanderpump was silent about the upcoming season of Housewives, but she was able to tell us a little bit about her spin-off Sur, chronicling operations at her highly-successful restaurant in Beverly Hills. “I started filming it and it’s going to have a very different energy to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which I’m not knocking for a second because that has been an unbelievable experience,” she said. “It looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun.”

With a wink and a smile, the dashing diva brought her signature touch of glamour to the afternoon. She was sure to throw in a punch of her witty sense of humor for good measure, as well. “This judge can be persuaded, I can be bought,” she said. “For a free meal, I’ll give them a vote. It’s nice to be on the other side and not have to sleep with them for a change.”
