Ex-'RHOBH' Star Lisa Vanderpump Nabs 'Vanderpump Dogs' Spinoff Series On Peacock

Lisa Vanderpump may have left her role on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills last year but that doesn't mean she has a whole lot of extra time on her hands. In fact, according to a recent commercial shared on Peacock, which teased "exclusive originals" with "iconic characters," she has a series named Vanderpump Dogs in the works.

The advertisement for the upcoming show, which was shared to Instagram late on Thursday, vowed to give fans an inside look at the "pampered pets" of Lisa's world. The ad described Vanderpump Dogs as an original program of NBCUniversal's new streaming service, Peacock.

As fans of RHOBH and Vanderpump Rules know, Lisa opened up her own animal rescue center in West Hollywood, California years ago. The rescue is just a short walk away from a number of her restaurants, including TomTom, PUMP Lounge, and SUR Restaurant, which was the launching point for Vanderpump Rules when the series first began in 2013.

The ninth season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills featured a controversial storyline regarding Dorit Kemsley and a dog she adopted from Vanderpump Dogs, which she was later accused of abandoning. That Season 9 plot was rumored to be the launching point for a new spinoff based out of the rescue center. However, Vanderpump Dogs wasn't actually announced until over a year later.

Although the Peacock commercial confirmed that a spinoff does exist, no other details about the show have been released at this point. That said, fans can likely expect to see some crossover moments with the cast of Vanderpump Rules, many of whom -- including Raquel Leviss and Lala Kent -- have been known to work at the center on occasion.

Lisa's spinoff news comes just after the former RHOBH cast member was forced to shut down her Beverly Hills restaurant, Villa Blanca, due to a rent increase at her venue's location.

As The Inquisitr previously reported, Lisa confirmed her restaurant's shutdown earlier this month.

"Although there have been many untrue articles in the past week or so about the reasons for closing Villa Blanca, we are indeed going to be closing up our doors for good," Lisa told the Daily Mail. "If the landlord had been willing to renegotiate and the lease wasn't ending, we would have reopened, but unfortunately with Coronavirus, the situation was beyond our control."

Lisa also revealed that she is considering reopening the venue at a different location.
