'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' filming shut down due to fire at Lisa Vanderpump's former home

vanderpump-mansion-fire.jpgOn Friday night, a mansion was ravaged by a fire in Beverly Hills. In fact, the fire became so severe that Bravo had to halt production on its "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" for the night.

The house in question would be familiar to fans of the franchise -- during the first two seasons of the show, series star Lisa Vanderpump and her husband Ken Todd lived in it. Their daughter's wedding, which was featured on the show, was held there.

Vanderpump sold the home and has since moved out; it's not known whether or not the new owners have moved in yet. According to TMZ, "Real Housewives" filming was underway on Friday night at the nearby home of Adrienne Maloof. They had to turn the cameras off when the Maloof home was evacuated as a precautionary measure.

The blaze, which occurred on the 100 block of Beverly Park Way, was reported at 6:30 p.m. and put out by 8 p.m. One firefighter was transported to a nearby hospital.


Speaking of fires, Colorado firefighters have been able to contain the spread of the wildfires that have overwhelmed the state this week, but the extent of the devastation is unfathomable. To learn how you can contribute to rebuilding, go to helpcoloradonow.org.
