Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Lisa Vanderpump opens up in an interview with In Touch magazine, insisting she isn’t as much of a diva as people may think. Lisa tells In Touch: "I have very few people around me," noting she doesn’t employ an assistant or a personal trainer. “I probably need [a trainer], but I don’t have one!"
When she’s not starring on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules, the U.K.-born Bravo personality, 57, is running three eateries — Pump, Villa Blanca and SUR — and has a fourth, Tom Tom, in the works. She also edits Beverly Hills Lifestyle magazine and oversees the Vanderpump Dog Foundation, an animal rescue nonprofit she founded with husband Ken Todd, 72, in 2016.
"I want to give back. So between my [dog] rescue center, the Teenage Suicide Hotline, feeding the homeless at Villa Blanca....I pile on as much as I can!"

And while the appearing on RHOBH has brought some lows into Lisa's life it also has seen some great moments as well. "Getting my star on the [Palm Springs, Calif.] Walk of Stars, being on Dancing With the Stars, speaking before Congress. [My daughter] Pandora and Jason [Sabo]'s wedding," to name a few.
"[RHOBH] has given me so many opportunities to bring attention to my LGBT advocacy and [efforts to end] the Yulin Dog Meat Festival," Lisa tells In Touch. "And it’s been great for business. I don’t take any of that for granted."
