Lisa Vanderpump’s former seven bedroom, 10 bathroom mansion in Beverly Hills caught fire on Friday evening. Even though she no longer owns the property, Lisa is emotional about the news. Her children had grown up in the home and her daughter even got married their.
“I’m shocked, really,” Lisa told KCAL-TV. “It’s been an incredible journey coming to America and living there. My daughter got married in that house, so I’m pretty emotional about it even though I sold it a few months ago.”
The mansion had been seen several times during seasons one and two of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The season 2 finale of the series featured the wedding of Lisa’s daughter, Pandora, which took place at the home. “She got married there in the fall, as everybody who watched RHBOH saw, and it was amazing, and that’s what I want to think of it.”
It reportedly took more than 100 firefighters to extinguish the blaze, according to Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott. A portion of the roof and floors collapsed due to the fire, and one firefighter was injured and treated at a local hospital. The fire was rumored to have spread to neighboring homes, but Scott confirms, “The fire was contained to the residence of origin. Firefighters worked aggressively to ensure the flames did not spread to nearby residences or thick brush.”
Filming on season 3 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was even shut down at Adrienne Maloof’s house due to the fire. Adrienne lives directly across the street from Lisa’s former home and was evacuated as a precautionary measure.
Lisa and her husband Ken Todd had sold the estate last year for $19 million. They moved to a smaller home in the area — by small we mean 8,000 square feet.
