Do the ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Cast Get a Discount at Tom Tom?
Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz made a big step by opening Tom Tom restaurant with Lisa Vanderpump. They can now call themselves business owners while the rest of the cast of Vanderpump Rules are going down other paths. Obviously cast members have stopped by Tom Tom to show their support for Sandoval and Schwartz. But do they get a discount on their meals? Here is everything you need to know.
The Vanderpump Rules cast do get a discount
The rest of the Vanderpump Rules cast might not have been offered their own bar deal with Lisa Vanderpump. But they aren’t completely left behind. They are fortunate enough to get a discount when they do visit Tom Tom.
Scheana Shay was giving updates on her visit to Tom Tom on an Instagram Story, according to Bravo. There she took a picture of her receipt which listed London Tandoori Chicken, Truffled Mac & Cheese, a three-piece order of the Brioche Kobe Sliders, and something labeled as “open food.” There was also a space for a discount, but she covered the amount.
This is not surprising given the cast is very close in real life and on the show. But also people would probably be more tempted to check out Tom Tom if they knew there was a chance to spot one of the reality stars. So why not give them a discount for the promotion?
Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz invested $50,000 each into the restaurant
The rest of the Vanderpump Rules cast might be saving a few dollars here or there at Tom Tom. But Sandoval and Schwartz had to cough up a lot of money to go into business with Vanderpump. Both of them had to pay $50,000 each for 5% stake in the business. She also weirdly held onto their checks for a long time before cashing them in.
So why did she choose the two Toms to start a new business? She told Entertainment Tonight that it was all about their personalities on and off the screen.
But they are so honest and open on reality television and that makes very interesting watching, you know? Before we had people come into the show and you feel like they are doing this, or doing that and they just don’t ride well with the audience. The audience can see through it. And I think with Tom and Tom, they respected others. You see this incredible honesty, and I think that translates very well.
It should be interesting to see what life is like for the Vanderpump Rules cast since Tom Tom opened. It looks like the cast is still very close and many cast members are visiting the new bar.
