In 2021, Vanderpump Rules fans heard that Bravo star Lisa Vanderpump might never re-open PUMP. At the time, she and Ken Todd faced legal issues with the California Franchise Tax Board. However, they eventually closed the place for good over lease issues, and now she’s talking about why they did that.

On the Vanderpump Rules Season 11 reunion this week, Andy Cohen spoke with Lisa about closing PUMP. According to her:

…for a restaurant to be in existence for 10 years…is a successful restaurant. But we just felt it was time to call it. We couldn’t make a profit there with the rent increase.

However, there was more to it, and BravoTV’s Daily Dish explained more about what Lisa Vanderpump said in the Peacock “extended and uncensored version.” The outlet cited Andy Cohen as telling her that the landlord claimed he “hadn’t raised the rent.” So he called her out on it.

Well then, we’ll go back…That’s not true.
