A former aspiring actress-turned-prominent designer, Lisa Vanderpump graduated from "Baywatch" babe to become one of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" (Bravo, 2010- ). Born in London, England circa 1960, Vanderpump spent part of her early years in Monte Carlo and Cheltenham before moving to the States and eventually settling in California. After being featured in music videos for the band ABC's "Poison Arrow" (1982) and "(What) In the Name of Love" (1984), she made an appearance on "Baywatch" (NBC/syndicated, 1989-2001), but stepped back to become the primary designer for the homes, yachts, and 26 bars and restaurants she owned with husband Ken Todd.
