Lisa Vanderpump is showing her softer side by telling “Vanderpump Rules” star Danica Dow to “stay strong” after being granted a restraining order against her ex-boyfriend. The SUR restaurant owner took to Danica’s Twitter to praise her after Dow fiercely defended Vanderpump after she was hit with a class action lawsuit.
Earlier this week, it was reported that a former SUR employee is suing Lisa Vanderpump and her husband, Ken Todd, claiming the duo failed to pay their staff overtime wages.
Olivia Hanson, who alleged she was a hostess at SUR from Oct. 2019 to Jan. 2020, also claimed that Lisa and Ken failed to provide proper meal and rest breaks or track staff’s hours currently. Danica Dow, who stayed off social media after filing the restraining order against her ex-boyfriend, SUR bartender Brett Willis, made her triumphant return to Twitter on Thursday, August 6 to shoot down the rumors.
Dow, who is the manager at SUR, spoke out on behalf of her bosses, claiming no one has ever not been paid.
“This isn’t true. I’ve never personally been, or even heard of, anybody not being paid,” she tweeted. When someone commented by asking, “How much is she paying you to tweet this?” Danica Dow fired back.
“I wish she was paying me cuz I’m broke but nah that’s not the case lol. Just standing up for my boss because it’s bullshit,” she replied. Despite claiming that Lisa Vanderpump doesn’t even like her, her boss had nothing but nice and encouraging words to send her way. “I see you! Stay strong darling we will get back on track soon,I miss all of you sooo much,” Lisa Vanderpump tweeted to Danica.
I see you! Stay strong darling we will get back on track soon,I miss all of you sooo much.

As The Blast reported, Danica Dow was granted a restraining order against Brett Willis after alleging he broke into her home and shredded all of her clothes in her closet with scissors. Brett Willis fired back by filing his own restraining order. He alleged that she got physically aggressive with him on multiple occasions, claiming that one time Danica even choked him.
While Tom Schwartz recently revealed that “Vanderpump Rules” has yet to be picked up for season nine, it’s speculated now that Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute are gone that Danica Dow and Brett Willis will play a major part on the series.
