Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump has been admired for her marriage to her husband of 31 years, Ken Todd, and in a new interview with Parade, she is dishing her secrets to a happy and healthy marriage.Â â€œIt sounds clichÃ©, but I think having respect for each other and being kind to one another,” she says when asked what her secrets are to a happy marriage.
“Of course, you have trials and tribulations like everybody does, but we have a sense of humor about things as well,” Lisa continues. “Weâ€™re not taking ourselves too seriously, and I think most people watchingÂ HousewivesÂ know that I do love a laugh, and Iâ€™m married to somebody that supports everything I do.â€
And Lisa doesn’t let tabloid gossip and rumors affect her, but she does acknowledge that Ken is very supportive of the couple’s reality TV lifestyle. “Itâ€™s just all sensationalism, and then you read about it on Twitter and you just have to ignore it or make a statement, but for the most part itâ€™s nonsense,” she says. “People should just relax and watch the show and then judge it from there. I just have to ignore it unless it comes from somewhere reputable. One thing that reality television does give you is a thicker skin. I remember the first time something was written about me and it wasnâ€™t true, I was so indignant and I burst into tears. I remember sitting in my restaurant thinking, â€˜how could they?â€™ Now Iâ€™m like, â€˜Oh, whatever!”
