Lisa Vanderpump has been called out for being “manipulative” this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and while she hasn’t gotten along with some of her cast mates, her SUR employees have been there to have her back. Scheana Shay and Katie Maloney have already spoken out to defend her and now Jax Taylor and Tom Schwartz are speaking out about the accusations that their boss is a manipulator.
“To me, it’s surprising because usually, the way I see Lisa is cool, calm, collected, the voice of reason. And to hear [her] in the trenches, it’s a surprise for me,” Tom told the Daily Dish.
Jax doesn’t keep up with Housewives, but thinks their drama is way different than Pump Rules. “It’s different in the world she lives in with the Housewives,” he said. “I don’t understand that world, the things they argue and fight about.”
“They’re worse than us, by the way. They fight more than us,” Tom agreed.
“I don’t know anything about manipulative people at all,” Jax joked before saying, “Like I said, I don’t really watch [RHOBH] that much, so I’m kind of clueless on it, but I don’t really see that happening.”
“I’ve never really seen her be manipulative, but I will say she has a way with words. She can win you over very easily with her words,” Tom explained. “[She’s] very convincing. She’s persuasive. And incredibly charming. Don’t get me started on Lisa.”
