Bravo TV personality, restaurateur and humanitarian Lisa Vanderpump, one of the stars of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and the former Queen of Jeffrey Sanker’s White Party Palm Springs, will receive the 372nd star on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars July 30.

Vanderpump will glide down the “pink carpet” for the 9 a.m. star dedication, hosted by Palm Springs Councilmember Paul Lewin and Robert Alexander, president of the Palm Springs Walk of Stars, in front of Plaza Mercado, 155 S. Palm Canyon Drive.

Speakers include White Party founder Sanker and Vanderpump’s close friend, Lance Bass, former member of the pop band ‘N Sync. In addition, Ruby’s at Plaza Mercado will serve “pink” milkshakes in honor of Vanderpump’s favorite color.

Her star announcement comes as Vanderpump, along with her pooch Giggy, will lead the way down Palm Canyon Drive on Dec. 6 as the Celebrity Grand Marshal for the city’s signature holiday event, the 23rd annual Palm Springs Festival of Lights Parade.

As a frequent visitor, Vanderpump has brought visibility and awareness to the Palm Springs community. She launched her highly successful Simply Divine book tour in downtown Palm Springs, and is a supporter of the city’s vibrant LGBT community and the Desert AIDS Project.

As one of the stars of the hit Bravo TV series, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which last season filmed an episode in Palm Springs, Vanderpump can be seen hosting dinner parties and running her elegant Beverly Hills eatery, Villa Blanca.

Fans can also catch Lisa on her spin-off show, Vanderpump Rules, which centers around SUR, her exclusive West Hollywood restaurant and lounge. She also owns the stylish PUMP Lounge in West Hollywood.
