It might have looked like a scene out of the male stripper film, Magic Mike, but unfortunately the 100 firefighters who showed up at the former home of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Lisa Vanderpump were actual firefighters.
The 17,000-square-foot pink palace — which was featured on the Bravo show and sold in September of last year for a mere $19 million — was seen on Friday with smoke billowing from the roof. Firefighters battled for an hour and a half in the exclusive Mulholland Estates neighborhood in the hopes of extinguishing the flames that ultimately sent one firefighter to the hospital with injuries.
Neighbor and Housewives costar, Adrienne Maloof — who lives across the street — confirmed there were no casualties, tweeting, “Thank you all for your concern! It has been a crazy couple of hours. Luckily everyone is safe!” Vanderpump also took to her Twitter page, saying, “Yes sadly I heard…a lot of wonderful memories, including my daughters wedding…I am glad to have shared it with you.”
Someone else who is probably sad to hear the news is Vanderpump’s ex-houseguest Cedric Martinez, who spent many years living in the palatial estate rent-free.
