Lisa Vanderpump, aka Lisa Vanderpump-Todd, stars in Bravo's reality docu-series "Vanderpump Rules," which explores the intricacies of owning SUR, a sexy, unique restaurant in West Hollywood. The show follows Vanderpump as she balances her motherly instincts with a shrewd business sense while keeping the passionate and volatile staff at her West Hollywood restaurant in line. She is best known though for starring in "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."

Vanderpump is also one of the celebrity

contestants competing in Season 16 of ABC's ballroom competition series, "Dancing with the Stars." She partners with professional dancer Gleb Savchenko, who is making his series debut.

As Sur's co-owner, creator, designer and boss, Lisa has the task of wrangling the restaurant's staff of dynamic but reckless employees. Although Lisa and her husband, Ken Todd, have owned 26 restaurants and bars in their native London and Los Angeles, Sur stands out for its sexy atmosphere and backstage fireworks. Lisa constantly tries to instill her values of hard work and professionalism to the Sur staff, who view her as a tough but caring mentor. Still, everyone knows that when a server crosses the line, Lisa's unafraid to crack the whip ... or hand out the pink slip.

After years as a restaurateur, Vanderpump showcased her passion for food, decor and lifestyle in her best-selling book, "Simply Divine: A Guide to Easy, Elegant and Affordable Entertaining."

This charming and witty Brit has only been in the US for five years but has already made her mark in Beverly Hills. Lisa Vanderpump was born and raised in London but lived in Monte Carlo and the South of France before moving to California. She has been married to her husband Ken Todd for almost twenty-nine years. She him met when she was manning the door of Corks bar in Kensington, London, and tried to charge him to come in to his own bar. They have two children, Pandora (24) and Max (18), plus their four dogs whom they also consider their babies.

While in Europe Lisa designed various homes, yachts and all of 26 bars and restaurants that the couple owned in London, including Jewel, Shadow Lounge, Bar Soho and the TV-themed "Cheers" megabar on Regent Street. And Lisa hasn't slowed down now that she is in the states. She currently owns two restaurants that she created, Villa Blanca a celebrity hangout, which has been described as "the sexiest restaurant " in Beverly Hills and Sur in West Hollywood.

Design is her passion, but she also writes a page each month for Beverly Hills Lifestyle magazine and she has a skin care line "Epione." Lisa says Beverly Hills is "an oasis in Los Angeles" and loves the glamorous lifestyle this "fantasyland" enables. Additionally she is candid about the fact that she spends every night in bed with a gigolo, also known as her pint-sized pup Giggy.

Lisa and her husband, British restauranteur Kenneth Todd, met when she was manning the door of Corks bar in Kensington, London, and tried to charge him to come in to his own bar. They married six weeks later.

Lisa made news recently when her Bentley was stolen out of her garage and later found in a ravine near Mulholland Drive — right near Charlie Sheen's crashed vehicle.

Lisa made her acting debut at 9 years old playing Glenda Jackson's daughter in "A Touch of Class." Lisa had several bit roles in the following years, culminating in an appearance on "Baywatch Nights."
