Celebrity event planner Kevin Lee is staying busy after planning Pandora Vanderpump’s fabulous wedding and Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd's vow renewel for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

 

In an exclusive interview before the premiere of Vanderpump Rules Season 1, Kevin told Wetpaint Entertainment about working on the Grammys and the Oscars, and his (now not-so-secret) side projectwith RHoBH star Lisa Vanderpump. And yes, he says he really is the real-life inspiration for Martin Short’s Father of the Bride character!

Are you really the real-life inspiration for Martin Short's character in Father of the Bride? Do tell!

Yes, I am! The producer of the movie was a client of mine. He did his version of me. I loved it!

Are you and Lisa still in touch? Are you working on a new project together?

Yes, we are definitely planning something else.

Does it have to do with her rumored new spinoff?

It’s related to the spinoff, yes. But I can’t tell you anything else. Sorry, darling, you will have to see what happens! (And now we know he was talking about Vanderpump Rules!)

I think the phrase is “Watch What Happens…”

Oh, you’re right! Watch what happens!

What else are you working on right now?

I’m working on the Grammys. I’m doing all the floral décor for the official after-party. And then the Oscars are coming up. I do the décor for each floor of the Kodak Theater. (Both of which were totally fabulous!)

What about other, non-Housewife celebrities? Who have been your favorite to work with?

Brad Pitt was incredible when I did his and Jennifer Aniston’s wedding. I also did Christina Aguilera’s wedding and Adam Sandler’s engagement party. Those celebrities were the nicest to work with. Once they’re not on camera, they let their guard down and they’re usually great. But I have to say, doing the Twilight premiere was pretty exciting!
