Lisa Vanderpump Defends Her Decision to Buy Each of Her Kids a Home!
Reality TV star Lisa Vanderpump recently bought both her children their own homes.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills mum revealed that she purchased her son Max an apartment this season on the show, and last year she revealed details of daughter Pandora’s home.
Vanderpump says it was a decision made mostly because she wanted to be able to give her children a shot at home ownership. She felt her kids had worked hard and deserved to be rewarded.
“Well I felt that I was criticised two or three years ago when I said I wasn’t paying Max’s electric bill and I didn’t care whether he had his electricity cut off. Work some more shifts, get the money to pay for it. I work seven days a week, so why can’t he work five? And if he has to take a cold shower and get dressed in the dark, I don’t care. And I was criticized for that,” she recently said.
“He started off a dishwasher in the restaurant and Pandora waited tables all through college, so I’m not about spoiling them,” she continued. “However in this case they reached a stage in their life, they proved themselves and what I wanted to do, I wanted to give them back the kind of lifestyle they had when they lived at home. And I felt for quite a few years now they lived on their own. They had kind of been through it a little bit, had their own struggles.”
The mum of two revealed there was also a bit of a selfish reason for her decision to help out Max and Pandora. “Also I had such pleasure doing it. I did it as much for me as I did for them,” she said. “But I did it so that dinner was on the table, but also I gave them the responsibility of giving them a mortgage that they can afford the same as the payments they were making on a rental property. It’s very difficult for the youngsters to get started so now they have a mortgage. It wasn’t like I just bought it outright. I put the deposit down and that’s what’s so difficult for young people to get together.”
Wow! Can Lisa adopt us too?!!
