The black-tie event was held on November 21 and the foundation anticipated at least 450 people would attend. “The funds raised at our Gala benefit The Vanderpump Dog Foundation, to help us create a better world for dogs, both domestically and internationally,” according to Vanderpump Dogs. The gala looked spectacular and the stars and friends came out in droves. Which stars and Real Housewives attended? A few cast members who attended may be a little surprising too.

Singer Ally Brooke was excited to be in attendance and so was Christy McGinity and Autumn Taylor from Little Women LA. Host and actor Mario Lopez spoke during the gala. Actress Nicky Whelan and Emmy Perry were also featured on the step and repeat.

Also, most of the Vanderpump Rules cast were on hand, including Kristen Doute, who has complained in the past that Vanderpump often blocks her from events. Another person who was previously on the outs with Vanderpump was James Kennedy who proudly arrived with girlfriend Raquel Leviss. Scheana Shay, Brittany Cartwright, and Tom Sandoval were all caught on camera chatting with the media.

These ‘Housewives’ attended too

Vanderpump has remained close with RHOBH alum, Joyce Giraud. Giraud shared video of Vanderpump’s impassioned speech during the gala. And while she didn’t share a photo wearing her gown, she offered a glimpse of her sparkling white dress in her story.

Shannon Beador from The Real Housewives of Orange County and boyfriend John Janssen attended too. Beador shared video and photos getting glammed up and ready for the event. “And the fun continues getting ready for the @vanderpumpdogs Gala,” Beador shared. She also said hello to the Vanderpump Dogs camera at the gala too.

Some of the surprising attendees included RHOBH alum, Kim Richards. Richards is filmed talking to the media, wearing a smart black dress and sharing her love for the foundation. While Vanderpump didn’t have a direct beef with Richards, viewers recall the painful falling out she had with Richards’ sister Kyle. Another RHOBH cast member who had a falling out with Vanderpump was Camille Grammer. Grammer was also in attendance and even posted some photos with Vanderpump.
