Lisa Vanderpump Fires Back at Health Code Violation Claims at Villa Blanca

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump and husband Ken Todd's restaurant Villa Blanca has reportedly been hit with some health code violations recently. However, Lisa is now firing back at the claims.

Radar Online reports that Lisa and husband Ken Todd's Beverly Hills eatery received five health code violations during its latest inspection on February 2. The restaurant earned a 90 rating, which still qualifies as an "A," but the rating is below the 91 that the restaurant scored on an inspection in October 2013.

The most startling violation that Villa Blanca has reportedly been hit with is for "rodents, insects, birds, or animals." Yikes. Then again, it certainly is no easy task to keep pests from getting into a restaurant. And by "pests," we're not referring to the staff of SUR, just so you know.

Other violations are for not maintaining "proper hot and cold holding temperatures" and for inadequate handwashing facilities. Villa Blanca had reportedly been shut down for three days following health code violations in September 2013.

Now, Lisa is addressing the issues on Twitter. "Old news," Lisa tweets on March 17. "Villa Blanca had a ventilation problem last September. We continue to have an A with the health department."
