When it comes to ex-Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump, either you hate to love her or love to hate her. Over the years, she has cultivated a brand image of a haughty British expatriate gifting American fools with sarcasm. Now, Vanderpump’s candid humor will be the centerpiece of a "naughty" new show premiering next month.
Overserved with Lisa Vanderpump is the name of the new show that's coming to E!, and it will showcase Vanderpump hosting dinner parties with the rich and famous at her Villa Rosa estate in Beverly Hills, per People. Any fan of Vanderpump can tell you the grandeur of Villa Rosa is no joke, and the trailer paints the image of a mad-cap inversion of a late night talk show -- but with more elegant décor and heavy drinking.
Along with some shots of a wasted Gabriel Iglesias and a relaxed Vivica A. Fox, the trailer for Lisa Vanderpump’s new show sees Steve-O on his hands and knees getting spanked and even Vanderpump herself mooning her guests. Talk about a far cry from the Real Housewife who often identified with the stiff British upper lip. In the clip, Vanderpump teases:
Overserved with Lisa Vanderpump will sit the reality TV star down with celebrities Housewives and Vanderpump Rules fans can only dream of. According to People, everyone from Iggy Azalea to Joel McHale to Lance Bass will be guests at Vanderpump’s exclusive parties.
The news of Overserved with Lisa Vanderpump is but another feather in the restaurant mogul’s cap. Not only does she own several businesses in West Hollywood, but she is now a bonafide reality television brand. She may not have reached Kardashian-status yet, but she's definitely up there.
Though she became famous as the queen of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills before her exit after nine seasons, Lisa Vanderpump did not stop there. Riding high on her fame, she executive-produced Vanderpump Rules in 2013, which centered on Vanderpump's employees at her West Hollywood restaurant, SUR.
The petty drama of the Vanderpump waitstaff quickly became a success in its own right, with Lisa Vanderpump only on the periphery of most scenes. She acted as the matriarch of her Vanderpump Rules employees, advising them on everything from cheating rumors to marital problems - and even entering into offshoot businesses with them. People reported that we will see some Vanderpump Rules stars like James Kennedy and Lala Kent in Overserved.
A rep for Peacock also confirmed to People back in July that there was a greenlight for another Lisa-Vanderpump-helmed show called Vanderpump Dogs. It has yet to be released, but it promises fans a deeper look into The Vanderpump Dog Foundation (her non-profit dog rescue organization).
Needless to say, Lisa Vanderpump knows her way around a juicy show. If she can handle Real Housewives, a bunch of millennial knuckleheads, and rescue dogs, then she can surely drink a few celebrities under the table.
Overserved with Lisa Vanderpump premieres on March 18 at 9 p.m. ET on E!.
