The last year or so has not been kind to the restauranteur and philanthropist behind Vanderpump Rules, but she has not given up on seeking out the positive. On Tuesday, June 25, Lisa Vanderpump addressed her mother’s death with a heartfelt tweet, thanking those who have offered condolences and letting negativity know it is not welcome here. The Bravolebrity wrote,
She also shared a family photo and a snapshot of all of the floral arrangements that have been sent to Villa Rosa. “Wonderful acts of kindness as I now live in a flower shop," she wrote.
Last week, the Daily Mail reported that Lisa’s mother, Jean Vanderpump, died on Monday, June 17 in England. She was 84. After the news broke, Lisa’s rep told the Daily Mail that she is too upset to comment and “asked for her privacy at this time.” A rep for LVP informed Bustle that she “is expected to fly to London in the coming week to arrange her mother’s funeral.” According to the Daily Mail, she has reportedly stepped away from Vanderpump Rules Season 8 filming for the time being. (Bustle reached out to LVP’s reps for comment on her filming status at the time, but has not received a response.)
The last 14 months of LVP’s life have been rife with personal tragedy. Last April, her brother, Mark Vanderpump, died unexpectedly at the age of 59. LVP said in a statement provided to the Daily Mail,
The ninth season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills started filming right after his passing, and LVP was still very much in the throes of her grief. As she said in a recent interview with the Daily Express,
She tried to power through the season, but the drama of Season 9 got to be too much. So, LVP exited the show. It was not the note she wanted to end on, but she felt it was her time to say goodbye to the series. As she told Hollywood Life earlier this month,
Like she said in the tweet that went up on Tuesday, she has "no time for negativity."
All the best to Lisa and her family during this time.
