Hulu released a teaser trailer for Lisa Vanderpump’s upcoming reality series Vanderpump Villa on New Year’s Eve, giving fans a glimpse into the luxurious world of the restaurateur’s latest venture in France. The short but exciting footage features Vanderpump gathering staff from her various restaurants and bringing them overseas to work at her opulent summer home.

Vanderpump Invites Staff to Lavish French Château

The teaser opens with sweeping shots of Vanderpump’s 19th century château in the south of France, where palm trees dot the landscape surrounding an enormous swimming pool. “I need a house manager, I need a butler, I need a chef,” Vanderpump says in a voiceover as a chef artfully plates food and servers in crisp white uniforms ferry drinks poolside. The camera then cuts to the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star seated on a velvet couch addressing her employees.

“I have invited you to my breathtaking château in the south of France to work in my summer home,” Vanderpump announces with her signature sophistication and glamour. She goes on to call it “the adventure of a lifetime” before laying down some ground rules, making it clear that this gig is still a job. “While I want you to have fun, I also need you to be on top of your game at all times,” she asserts.

The Vanderpump hospitality empire has been rapidly expanding in recent years. In addition to her long running West Hollywood staples Villa Blanca and SUR, the restaurateur has added Las Vegas hotspots Vanderpump Cocktail Garden and Caesars Palace eatery Vanderpump à Paris. She also owns TomTom with Vanderpump Rules stars Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz.

By inviting trusted staff from her various restaurants to work at her summer home overseas, Vanderpump creates the ultimate crossover opportunity. Familiar faces Katie Maloney-Schwartz, Ariana Madix, and Charli Burnett from Vanderpump Rules are spotted briefly in the montage, leaving fans hopeful for some crossover cameos over the course of the show.

New Series Follows Exit From RHOBH

Vanderpump Villa marks Lisa Vanderpump’s first show since departing The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after nine drama-filled seasons. The iconic housewife bowed out in 2019 following a falling out with her cast members over her staff drama being exposed on the show.

“I had a great time on Housewives, but with this, it’s so refreshing,” Vanderpump told Rolling Stone of her new series. “These people really work for me and rely on me to open restaurants so it’s a different relationship.”

Without the constant shade and pettiness that consumed her final RHOBH seasons, Vanderpump is able to focus on her first love – hospitality. Vanderpump Villa allows her to put the luxury back in reality TV while doing what she does best – hosting fabulous soirees and running spectacular venues.

“Viewers can expect to see the staff experience French culture at its finest — visiting the most gorgeous sights, sampling world class wines and cuisine, and welcoming celebrity guests on holiday,” a source close to production revealed to Entertainment Tonight. “It’ll have hints of Vanderpump Rules meets Below Deck in the south of France.”

While her château staff live it up abroad and soak in all the perks of working for Lisa Vanderpump, her West Hollywood eateries back home suffer from short staffing. “I don’t have a bartender — I don’t have anyone to help,” a frazzled Katie Maloney-Schwartz complains in the trailer.

This leaves Vanderpump’s remaining Vanderpump Rules stars struggling to pick up the slack, surely resulting in plenty of the drama and antics fans have come to know and love from the long running Bravo hit.

What to Expect From Vanderpump’s New Venture

Between the stunning locale, crossover cameos, and luxury hospitality, Vanderpump Villa is shaping up to be Lisa Vanderpump television gold.

“Fans can expect incredible views, the best rosé in France and breathtaking glimpses into Lisa’s personal world,” a source told E! News back in March 2022 when the series was first announced. “Expect absolute opulence.”

The show promises to deliver all that and more – with a healthy dose of drama as Lisa balances her staff’s antics with extremely high standards for top notch service.

“While others may choose to lose their cool, some may neglect their duties, or breach the privacy we afford guests, that’s not the way I run my business,” she cautions her staff in the trailer. “And this is first and foremost a business.”

Leave it to the baroness of reality TV to take vacations in France to the next level with a splash of luxury hospitality only Lisa Vanderpump can provide. Fans are already clamoring for more on social media after the thrilling first look.

“THIS IS EVERYTHING I WANTED!!!” one fan tweeted, as others proclaimed “Best news ever!” and “My dreams come true!!!”

Judging by the early reactions alone, it seems Vanderpump Villa will be sure to draw viewers in and keep them coming back for more all season long when it premieres on Hulu. Lisa Vanderpump wouldn’t have it any other way!
