Lisa Vanderpump is very proud of how she gets involved in the LGBTQ community in Los Angeles, as SUR and PUMP are located right in the heart of the gay community in West Hollywood. Every year, Lisa does a great job in doing something awesome for pride every year and she didn’t hold back on last night’s episode of Vanderpump Rules. The pride parade took place the day after the horrible shooting in Orlando and it clearly affected the entire cast of Vanderpump Rules. While Vanderpump told her employees that they could decide whether they wanted to go to work, Lisa wanted to hold on to her commitments and ride in the pride parade with thousands of people watching her.
According to a new tweet, Lisa Vanderpump is now revealing that it is important that they stand together during these tough times. Lisa wasn’t mad that her employees decided to stay home instead of coming to work, because she herself was worried about what could have happened if someone reacted to the shootings in Orlando just hours prior to the Los Angeles pride parade. On Twitter, Lisa revealed that she decided to go forward with her commitments because of the adversity the gay community faces on a daily basis.
