Holy Smokes! ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Mansion Goes Up in Flames
A sprawling mansion that had featured prominently on the reality show 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' has burned in a dramatic blaze that required more than 100 firefighters to get under control.
The over-the-top abode had belonged to 'RHOBH' star Lisa Vanderpump and was featured in the show's opening credits. Vanderpump and her husband Ken Todd had sold the home in September for $19 million, but Vanderpump was still devastated by news of the fire.
“I’m shocked, really,” she told KCAL-TV. “It’s been an incredible journey coming to America and living there. My daughter got married in that house, so I’m pretty emotional about it even though I sold it a few months ago.”
In a separate interview with NBC4, Vanderpump stated, "I feel sorry for the new owners. I mean, they paid a lot of money for it, let’s be honest, and now I don’t know."
One firefighter was injured battling the blaze and is listed in serious but stable condition.
If you happen to be worried about Vanderpump's former neighbors and 'Real Housewives' co-stars' Adrienne Maloof and Dr. Paul Nassif, don't be. "At home with the family and smelled smoke," Nassif tweeted. "The house across the street from us is on fire. All of us here are OK!"
