Lisa Vanderpump’s famous restaurant, Pump, has been hit with a major setback as its liquor license has been suspended. The suspension comes amid ongoing drama surrounding the reality TV show “Pump Rules,” which follows the lives of the staff members at Vanderpump’s various restaurants.
The suspension of Pump’s liquor license was confirmed in a report from the Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC), which was obtained by Us Weekly. According to the report, the restaurant’s general eating license and event permits were suspended on March 8th, despite not being set to expire until next month.
The reasons for the suspension are not entirely clear, but sources suggest that it may be related to violations of COVID-19 protocols. In recent months, the restaurant has been under scrutiny for allegedly violating safety guidelines related to the pandemic.
The suspension of Pump’s liquor license is a significant blow for Vanderpump, who has worked hard to establish her brand as a successful restaurateur. The restaurant, which is located in West Hollywood, is known for its stylish décor and celebrity clientele.
The suspension of the liquor license has also raised questions about the future of “Pump Rules,” which has already been rocked by scandal in recent months. The show has been criticized for its portrayal of toxic relationships and poor workplace culture, and several cast members have been fired as a result.
It remains to be seen how the suspension of Pump’s liquor license will affect the restaurant and the wider Vanderpump brand. However, it is clear that this is a significant setback for the reality star and her business ventures.
Fans of “Pump Rules” and Vanderpump’s other ventures will be eagerly watching to see how the situation develops in the coming weeks and months. Regardless of the outcome, it is clear that the drama surrounding the restaurant and the show is far from over.
