Several Vanderpump Rules stars want Danica Dow off the show, according to TMZ. The SUR assistant manager allegedly got into a heated, physical altercation with her ex-boyfriend, Brett Willis recently, and the bartender was granted a restraining order from a judge last week. Apparently, this was not the first violent incident the star had been involved in.
Sources on the show told the outlet that a "majority of the cast -- including longtime stars on the series" believe that Danica's recent violent episode makes her more trouble than she's worth. The 25-year-old joined the series last season. Her role was deemed minor, as she was not involved in most of the drama.
Castmembers have witnessed Danica's violent behavior first-hand during filming, according to the outlet. Specifically, the SUR assistant manager was seen pushing her boyfriend while shooting last season. Although Brett isn't a part of the cast, he was present during filming because he works at Lisa Vanderpump's restaurant. Danica was also suspended from her job for two weeks last year because of an altercation with Brett.
Sources claim that her past behaviors led many on the show to believe that the recent allegations are valid.
Brett went to court last week to request a restraining order against Danica. He claimed that their argument continued "until Danica grabbed my neck twice, each time digging her nails deep and pulling hard enough to scratch off some skin from my neck," according to documents obtained by TMZ. Brett also claimed in the filing that the two have had a turbulent history and Danica allegedly went off on him at the Vanderpump Rules premiere party.
However, their issues may not be one-sided. Danica reportedly claimed that Brett entered her home and destroyed her clothes, and she was granted a restraining order against him last week.
Brett released a statement to E! News after news of the issues broke, and in it, he declared that their "toxic" relationship was over and hoped that the two could continue to work together.
"For me, I want her to retract everything. We work at the same establishment, and I want us to be able to work and keep it professional and amicable. Our relationship was toxic and it's not there anymore. I still love her, but I also have to look out for myself."Danica responded to Brett's statement to the outlet and disputed his claims.
"Brett's version of these events are a complete lie. "As The Inquisitr previously reported, Lisa's restaurants — TomTom, SUR, and Pump — remain closed after first shuttering due to the pandemic in mid-March.
