Lisa Vanderpump, of Real Housewives fame, is attempting to settle a sexual assault case that had been filed against her Beverly Hills restaurant, Villa Blanca. The trial is set to begin on Monday so it looks like this is a last ditch effort to make sure they never have to enter the courtroom.
And who can blame her! It's unlikely Vanderpump wants this kind of case going to court.
Karina Bustillos, the waitress that filed the suit, claims the manager from the restaurant, Michael Govia, tried to kiss her, violently grabbed her wrists and called her a profanity. Here's the part that wraps Lisa in ... her suit says that Vanderpump refused to do anything about it. Bustillos eventually quit.
In docs obtained by TMZ it looks like Vanderpump made an offer to settle for $40,001 -- even though Bustillos is asking for $5 million.
It will be interesting to see if Bustillos will want to settle for the amount Vanderpump is offering. Maybe there will be some back and forth between the lawyers, since our guess is Bustillos will want more!
The big question is -- does she deserve more?
