[via press release from Bravo]


New Docu-Series "Vanderpump Rules" Will Debut as Part of the Special

NEW YORK - November 15, 2012 - Bravo Media will present an incredible two-hour television event of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" on Monday, January 7, 2013 from 9:00-11:00 PM ET/PT which sets the stage for the premiere of the new docu-series "Vanderpump Rules." "Vanderpump Rules" follows the passionate, volatile and hot-and-bothered-staff at Lisa Vanderpump's West Hollywood mainstay SUR. Lisa balances her motherly instincts and shrewd business sense to keep control over this wild group of employees as they pursue their dreams and each other while working at her "Sexy, Unique Restaurant." Often seen on "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," SUR has been the backdrop for many memorable moments, including the unexpected encounter between Brandi Glanville and Scheana Marie, a female server who famously had an affair with Brandi's ex-husband.

Get to know the cast of "Vanderpump Rules":

Lisa Vanderpump

As SUR's co-owner, creator, designer and boss, Lisa has the task of wrangling the restaurant's staff of dynamic but reckless employees. Although Lisa and her husband, Ken Todd, have owned 26 restaurants and bars in their native London and Los Angeles, SUR stands out for its sexy atmosphere and backstage fireworks. Lisa constantly tries to instill her values of hard work and professionalism to the SUR staff, who view her as a tough but caring mentor. Still, everyone knows that when a server crosses the line, Lisa's unafraid to crack the whip... or hand out the pink slip.

Scheana Marie

Scheana still dreams of making it big in Hollywood, but unfortunately, the only name she has made for herself thus far is in the tabloids as a "home wrecker" after she famously admitted to an affair with the ex-husband of Lisa's close friend Brandi Glanville. As the new girl at SUR, Scheana is constantly faced with proving that she is not the same naïve girl who fell for a married man and that she has talents far beyond other's expectations.

Stassi Schroeder

For the past three years, Stassi has been serving at SUR while she works to become the next big thing in fashion. She has a say-anything-to-anyone-at-anytime mentality and her mouth often gets her in trouble at SUR and especially with Lisa. Two years ago, Stassi moved in with her boyfriend Jax and the two have been fighting passionately and making up even more passionately ever since. Always protecting her relationship with Jax, Stassi views Scheana as a threat and labels her a "home wrecker" to the other staff.

Jax Taylor

Jax is a working model who bartends at SUR and enjoys the freedom, easy money and carefree lifestyle he has found in Hollywood. A self-described "Peter Pan," he and his live-in girlfriend, Stassi, often fight over his immature actions and inability move to the next level in their relationship. But if he wants to be with Stassi forever, he is going to need to make a change, and fast.

Kristen Doute

Kristen started modeling and acting as a child and has been at SUR for five years, which is longer than almost anyone on staff. Kristen loves working at SUR, side-by-side with her best friends Stassi and Katie, and her boyfriend of four years, Tom Sandoval. But her propensity to insert herself where she doesn't belong often gets her into trouble with the staff, and her boss, Lisa.

Tom Sandoval

Tom bartends at SUR to make ends meet as he chases his dreams working in modeling, acting and playing guitar in a band. Tom lives with his girlfriend, fellow performer and fellow SUR employee Kristen. As their lives become more entwined, he is beginning to question why their personal and work lives need to be one and the same.

Katie Maloney

Katie is best friends with fellow servers, Stassi and Kristen, and began dating Kristen's friend Tom Schwartz, who is in the same circle as her co-workers. Katie is finding that SUR has become her full-time job and the center of her social life. Often pushed around by her so called "friends," the nice girl from Utah is learning that she needs to speak up and assert herself.

"Vanderpump Rules" is produced by Evolution Media with Douglas Ross, Greg Stewart, Alex Baskin, Bill Langworthy, Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd serving as Executive Producers.
