When celebrities flock to a new and hip lounge you know you’ve got a hit. And  that’s what just happened to Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump.

“We’ve just expanded SUR Lounge and it’s doing quite well, actually,” Lisa tells RumorFix exclusively. “I was quite shocked when I heard all the who’s who in Hollywood frequent the lounge. It’s a very rewarding feeling and I just want everyone who comes to SUR Lounge to relax and enjoy themselves and have a fabulous time.”

This week alone SUR Lounge got a visit from some Hollywood favorites including X Factor’s Paula Abdul, pop star Miley Cyrus, singer La Toya Jackson, baseball player Barry Bonds, The Talk’s Sharon Osbourne, So You Think You Can Dance’s Nigel Lythgoe and Dancing With The Stars judge Bruno Tonioli.

Lisa says “It’s a combination of the food, the live DJ and the best music for which SUR is known, the ambiance and of course, the cocktails. Having a cucumber martini in the back garden is my idea of paradise and I everyone to have the same experience when they visit SUR Lounge.”

The restauranteur, who also owns the successful Villa Blanca restaurant in Beverly Hills, says, “I love being at SUR and working with my staff. It’s fun, challenging, exciting and in all honestly it pushes me to new levels,” Lisa explains. “You know the restaurant business is a tricky one and you’ve got to constantly be on top of your game. It’s highly competitive but if you have the dedication and the passion for it — everything else will ultimately fall into place.”

      Don’t know how you have time running your businesses and taping the show

        Lisa and Ken know the best way to have multi successful businesses is to employ loyal and deadicated employees and management. I have to say that was very apparent from one of the RHOBH episode when she sat down with her general manager and explained what this expansion at Sur would put on his now busy schedule and how much time will be expected of him and if he was willing to take on. There is a thought on how to always keep control of your own business and this came from a very successful business women and I am sure all know of her. Ms. Oprah, who on one of her shows stated the success of any business is ” DON’T ALLOW ANYONE ELSE SIGN THE CHECKS ” because this always keeps you intouch with your business and you can not be blind sided.

      She is a very smart and hard working woman. I like everything about her. She is the reason I watch the show. I hope she isn’t getting soft on Taylor.

      Lisa is my favorite, I absolutely love her and wish her continued success. Smart, beautiful, witty and classy I don’t know HOW she deals with those other women (except Camille).  Adrienne stooped to a low with her rude confrontation on the bacholorette party.  The Palms is in trouble through no fault of Lisa’s.
