Vanderpump was a full-time drama student by the age of nine and starred in numerous television shows and films as a child. She made her film debut in the 1973 dramedy A Touch of Class, playing the daughter of Vicky Allessio played by Glenda Jackson, and also appeared in the cult horror film Killer's Moon (1978). Throughout the '70s, '80s, and '90s, Vanderpump had small roles in various episodic television programs. She appeared on the television series Silk Stalkings and as Margo Curtis on Baywatch Nights.


She was featured prominently in '80s music videos "Poison Arrow" and "Mantrap" by the band ABC and also "(What) In the Name of Love" by the duo Naked Eyes. She was featured in the Lady Gaga music video for "G.U.Y." in March 2014.


She debuted on Bravo's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in 2010. In 2013, she was featured in a spin-off of the program, Vanderpump Rules, which focuses on her West Hollywood restaurant, SUR.


Before moving to the US, Vanderpump designed twenty-six of the London-based bars and restaurants that she co-owned with her husband. They own two new restaurants in California. Villa Blanca is based in Beverly Hills, while Sur, the focus of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills spin-off, Vanderpump Rules is based in West Hollywood. In August 2013, entrepreneurs Ryan Allen Carrillo and Andrew Gruver filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court, naming Vanderpump and her husband as defendants and alleging breach of fiduciary duty, constructive fraud, breach of contract, and misrepresentation and deceit, according to court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com. Carrillo and Gruver claim the couple "unfairly snatched the West Hollywood venue" where they intended to open a gay sports bar called Bar Varsity.

Dancing with the Stars 16[]

In February 2013, Vanderpump was announced as one of the twelve celebrities participating in the sixteenth season of Dancing with the Stars. Her professional partner was ballroom dancer Gleb Savchenko, who has appeared on a season of the Australian version of Dancing with the Stars. She and Savchenko became the second couple to be eliminated from the show. During training for the fourth week, Vanderpump passed out and was rushed to a hospital by her partner, where she found out that she had an early flu virus.

During her post-dance interview, she stated, "It's not how many times you fall, but how many times you get up."
