Despite her past and recent fights with some of her co-stars (earth calling Brandi Glanville), “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” (RHOBH) star and “Vanderpump Rules” boss Lisa Vanderpump explained why reality TV made her life better (didn’t see that coming!). Read on to know why.

In an interview with Bloomberg, Vanderpump described joining reality TV as “a good move” for her businesses, especially her restaurant. Since her stardom on Bravo, Vanderpump managed to start venturing vodka, sangria, tabletops and jewelry. She claimed that all of her businesses became successful.

When it comes to her beginnings, Vanderpump admitted rejecting her “RHOBH” role offered by casting directors at first. She was offered the spot because of her luxurious lifestyle in an exclusive community at Beverly Hills and her high-class restaurant. She described herself as “a natural selection for the Housewives.” Rejection became possible because she was not interested at all.

Vanderpump said that she was never comfortable with arguing. After witnessing conflicts from a few shows, she concluded that reality TV is “too volatile” for her. However, after numerous attempts, Vanderpump was finally convinced by a producer on NBC to have a screen-test. The catch? She made a deal with the producer that the show must portray her accurately to preserve her “integrity.”

Thankfully, Vanderpump realized that presenting herself on television could be good exposure for her and her principles. She has used reality TV to advocate several causes such as animal rights and gay freedom. With her effort, she was honored numerous awards such as a Palm Springs Walk of Fame star and California State Assembly’s Woman of the Year award.

In the 17th episode of “RHOBH” entitled “Amster-damn Slap,” Glanville slapped Vanderpump after a few jokes. They were busy talking about the famous kiss on the American TV series “The Love Boat.” Glanville suggested kissing with Vanderpump. Vanderpump rejected her and threatened playfully that she would slap her. Turns out, Glanville had the upper hand when she slapped Vanderpump without any warning.

“RHOBH” airs every Tuesday at 9:00 p.m. on Bravo.
