She reportedly lost the liquor licenses for two of her well-known chains, Tom Tom Restaurant and Bar and Pump Lounge, and people are talking about its connection to Pump Rules Drama.
A report from the Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC), which we got on Monday, March 13, says that the West Hollywood hotspot’s general eating license and event permits, which don’t expire until next month, have been suspended since March 8. The documents didn’t say why the restaurant was closed, but the establishment was closed on Saturday, March 11, and a sign said it was because of rain problems.
A routine inspection by ABC reportedly found several violations with the sale and service of alcohol, such as selling alcohol to minors, which led to the suspension. Based on the evidence, the breaches happened from July to September 2022, and the rest occurred on March 8, 2023. It will stay in place until the problems are fixed.
However, the reports also said that after a fee waiver or renewal fee is sent to ABC, it can take up to six weeks for the expiration date to be changed. Lisa Vanderpump, the restaurant owner, has also made it clear that they will follow all rules and regulations about selling and serving alcohol.
She and her husband, Ken Todd, own several restaurants, such as Pump, SUR, and TomTom. In 2013, the reality star got her Bravo show, “Vanderpump Rules,” about the people working at her restaurant in Los Angeles.
Over the years, Sandoval and Vanderpump have become good business partners. The Missouri native started as a bartender at SUR and was one of the first people to be on the Bravo show when it began in 2013. Five years later, Sandoval and co-star Tom Schwartz joined forces with the restaurant owner and her husband to open TomTom.
Other sources say that liquor licenses are being taken away when Sandoval and Raquel Leviss are proven cheating. Sandoval broke up with his longtime girlfriend, Ariana Madix after she found out about his affair with Leviss, who is also on “Vanderpump Rules.”
When he finally talked about it, the co-owner of TomTom said that fans were right to be disappointed in him after the affair was revealed. Sandoval later apologized to Madix, saying he had been selfish and made careless choices that hurt someone he cared about.
Vanderpump even discussed how she felt about the news on the March 8 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. “I didn’t see it coming, and neither did anyone else,” she said, confirming that she had seen Madix since the news broke and that he was devastated. Vanderpump added, “Many tears were shed. Ariana was always that ride-or-die girlfriend. It seems like Raquel was the ride-or-die girlfriend.”
“RHOBH” alum Lisa is a business mogul well-known in Hollywood for her bars and restaurants. With her husband, Ken Todd, the reality star owns and runs 36 restaurants, bars, and clubs in the United States and the United Kingdom. Lisa’s license to sell liquor was taken away right before the 95th Academy Awards when restaurants were the busiest. Smells fishy, right?
