It has been a rough few weeks for the cast members of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, who are still reeling from the tragic suicide of cast-mate Russell Armstrong. But, their is a bit of good news and reason to be happy for the ladies on the near horizon as it was revealed earlier today that Lisa Vanderpump’s 24-year-old daughter Pandora Vanderpump-Todd will be marrying Jason Sabo this weekend at the Vanderpump residence in Beverly Hills!

Radar Online broke the story about the wedding being this weekend, with their “source close to the situation” saying:
The Housewives were caught off guard with Russell’s suicide and memorial, and although it’s bad timing, the wedding has been planned for quite some time so they couldn’t change it.
Jason proposed to Pandora a while ago, but they’re trying to keep everything secret so Bravo can use the story line to fill in the gaps left by Russell’s suicide. They did, however, film an almost proposal on the first season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Although the actual wedding date was a closely guarded secret, the engagement was not. Jason Sabo’s mother Valeire Sabo shared the good news way back on March 18 via Twitter with the tweet, “Jason Sabo is engaged to Pandora Vanderpump-Todd!”
According to Radar there will be approximately 275 guests in attendance at the pink-themed affair, including a number of celebrities such as Charlie Sheen. Also in attendance will be the Bravo film crews for what is assumed to be part of the Season 2 finale episode.
“Wedding guests will enjoy a seven-course dinner of filet mignon or Chilean sea bass,” the source said.”They will begin with a typical cocktail hour and the ceremony will start around 7:30 p.m., with the Bravo cameras rolling.”

We got to meet Lisa and Ken’s adopted 18-year-old son Max in the premiere season. The attractive blond is a graduate of Pepperdine University, where she received her Bachelor of Arts in Telecommunications: Television Production as well as English Literature. (I think I’m getting a crush here! Oh man – wouldn’t Lisa Vanderpump be the best mother-in-law ever?!?)
Jason Sabo has also spent time on the Pepperdine campus, having received his Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration and Philosophy in 2008. According to his LinkedIn profile he is currently back at Pepperdine working on his Masters degree in business with a projected graduation date of 2012.
Another interesting thing on Jason’s LinkedIn profile is that he is listed as “Manager” of the Villa Blanca restaurant from 2009 to present. As you may know, Villa Blanca is the super-trendy (and super-successful) restaurant owned and run by…. Lisa Vanderpump! The above photo was taken while Jason was still listed as just a server – he must have since worked his way up and up and up – all the way to the position of son-in-law!
Congratulations to the young couple. Let’s hope their celebration can lift the spirits of the cast and crew of the show.
Here’s one last shot of Pandora with mom and pop looking Vanderpumptastic!
*** Apparently the world’s most eligible bachelor remains so as all is quiet on the Giggy front. Woofee!
Ed. Note: The author of this article originally posted we have not seen Pandora on the show, but we definitely have, and remember quite well Lisa bringing her chickens home to roost. Our apologies for the brain fart!
