Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Hook-Ups: How Did Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd Meet?

Long before Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was a twinkle in her eye, a young actress named Lisa Vanderpump met Ken Todd, and what began as a whirlwind courtship has turned into a 30 year marriage. But how did Lisa and Ken meet?

Where else—at a bar! Specifically, Corks bar in the London neighborhood of Kensington, which Ken owned. One night in 1982, 21-year-old Lisa was “being a smartarse” and manning the door as a joke. She tried to charge him to come in. To his own bar.

It seems Ken, then 37, didn’t much mind. "She was like a breath of fresh air coming into my life," he told the Evening Standard in 2002. "I thought, hello, he looks interesting," said Lisa. They got married six weeks later.

Given their beginnings, it seems only fitting the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills couple went on to make their considerable fortune in the restaurant and bar business. Even though their nonexistent sex life has become a running joke on the reality show, these two are clearly in love with one another. Who says no one meets the love of their life at bar?
