LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Though she hasn’t lived in the home for months, Lisa Vanderpump was very upset to learn her former Beverly Hills mansion had caught fire on Friday.
“I’m shocked, really,” “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star 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.”
The stunning home (featured in the “RHOBH” opening credits) has a special place in Lisa’s heart – mainly because her daughter, Pandora, got married there.
“She got married there in the fall, as everybody who watched ‘RHBOH’ saw, and it was amazing, and that’s what I want to think of it,” she said.
The blaze was first reported around 6:30 PM on Friday evening and quickly drew more than 100 firefighters to the scene.
One of the firefighters sustained injuries and was transported to a hospital. However, Lisa took to Twitter on Saturday to give an update regarding the injured firefighter.
“This morning I spoke to @LAFD the firefighter is fine and at home,” she Tweeted. “Remember possessions and houses can be replaced,people can’t.:)”
The Bravo star and her husband, Kenneth Todd, sold the home last fall for roughly $19 million after both of their children moved out, KCAL reported.
