In 2012, the 52-year-old Lisa Vanderpump celebrated her 30th wedding anniversary with her husband Ken Todd. The two have two children, Pandora (26) and Max (20)--as well as their three dog "babies," including one (Giggy) who has his own agent with Creative Arts Agency.

Originally from England, Vanderpump lived in Monte Carlo and the South of France before moving to Beverly Hills. She designed several houses and all 26 restaurants and bars she owned with her husband in London. The couple then down-sized and now only run two eateries, the Beverley Hills celebrity hangout, Villa Blanca and West Hollywood's Sur. Vanderpump also writes for Beverly Hills Lifestyle magazine and, in 2011, published the book Simply Divine: A Guide to Easy, Elegant, and Affordable Entertaining.

During the first season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Vanderpump often appeared with her live-in personal trainer, the sexy gay Frenchman, Cedric Martinez. He was asked to leave the guest house by the end of Season One, but in Season Two Martinez' friend Brandi Glanville became a regular guest on RHOBH and Martinez showed up again.

On RHOBH, Vanderpump mostly stays out of fights--except in Season Two when Taylor Armstrong accused her of telling Us magazine about Armstrong's troubled marriage with Russell.

In addition to her role on Real Housewives, Vanderpump competed on Dancing with the Stars Season 17 and stars on Vanderpump Rules, a reality show that follows Vanderpump and the staff of her West Hollywood restaurant, SUR.
