Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump’s mansion is officially up for sale. According to Astrochicks, Lisa and her husband, Ken Todd, are suffering from “empty nest syndrome” and want to downsize. The house is absolutely beautiful and is in one of the most famous zip codes in the world, 90210.
Unlike many of her Real Housewives predecessors, restaurateur Lisa is not losing her home because of an impending divorce or lack of payment. Here are some housewives who have lost their homes/moved during the show as a result of those reasons:
- Real Housewives of New York star LuAnn de Lesseps lost her coveted townhouse in Manhattan in her divorce settlement, forcing her to (gasp!) trek out to her summer home in the Hamptons.
- Real Housewives of New York star Sonja Morgan, ex-wife of a J.P. Morgan heir, recently declared bankruptcy, citing John Travolta as the reason for being $19.8 million in debt, with only a little over $13 million in assets. (She had planned to work on a movie with Travolta, but her production company couldn’t meet his demands, and the movie was not made.) She hasn’t lost her house (yet) and surpassed Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice, who declared bankruptcy at $11 million in debt.
- Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice, whose bankruptcy and financial woes were perhaps made the post public of all the Real Housewives, has not yet lost her house, but reports threatening foreclosure on the mansion and an auction of the family’s belongings surface every day. Of course, if you’re really interested in the Giudice’s foreclosure status, you can take a Real Housewives of New Jersey tour and draw your own conclusions.
- Real Housewives of Orange County star Lynne Curtin was famously evicted from her Laguna Beach rental home after failing to pay the security deposit. Her daughters who were the only ones home, were the ones who actually received the notice, which the Bravo cameras luckily caught on camera. The Curtins were evicted from their Laguna Beach home after Lynn got a face-lift and her daughter, Raquel, got a nose job, with Lynne claiming not to have any knowledge of the family’s financial troubles, and blaming her husband for not informing her. According to The Orange County Register, the Curtins were evicted from their Capistrano Beach home before moving to the Laguna Beach home; both homes have appeared on the show. Additionally, the Curtins were just evicted from their latest home in Aliso Viejo this October, making it their third eviction notice this year.
- Real Housewives of Orange County‘s Vicki Gunvalson contemplated downsizing from their grand estate to a smaller, but still beautiful, home in Coto. She stated the decision was based on her and her long-suffering husband, Donn Gunvalson, being “empty-nesters.” However, Vicki ultimately decided against downsizing, because it indicated failure, in her eyes. She filed for divorce from Donn this Octorber.
- Last year, reports surfaced alleging that Real Housewives of Atlanta former star Lisa Wu Hartwell and her husband, former Oakland Raiders linebacker Ed Hartwell, lost their house due to foreclosure. However, Lisa maintained that the house was sold in a short sell, and was not foreclosed on. The couple discussed moving in season 2.
- One of the first Real Housewives stars, Lauri Waring of Real Housewives of Orange County, was shown living in a townhouse with her three children in season one of the show. She had been twice divorced by that point, and had downsized from living in a McMansion inside the Coto de Caza gates to living in a townhouse outside the gates. However, she met the love of her life, a wealthy real estate and land developer, George Peterson, during season 2, and married him on season 3. She moved from the townhouse to his luxurious San Juan Capistrano estate.
