Lisa Vanderpump has been on reality TV since 2010, first on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” and then on “Vanderpump Rules.” In recent years, she also starred in a couple of spinoffs: The dinner party series, “Overserved,” and “Vanderpump Dogs.”
Over the years, fans have met Vanderpump’s family, including her husband, Ken Todd, their kids Pandora and Max, and even their many dogs, most notably Giggy, the couple’s popular Pomeranian who died in 2020.
