Lisa Vanderpump who stars on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was attacked today at the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Who knew – Beverly Hills was so dangerous? A man who was drunk verbally abused Lisa and one of the people she was at the Polo Lounge with, Robert Kovacik, got up to ask the man to stop. The man punched him and knocked him to the ground and he was bleeding badly.
TMZ further reports: Lisa tells TMZ … she was sitting in a booth with her husband Ken and L.A. news reporter Robert Kovacik … along with two elderly people, when a man at a nearby table began harassing them with verbal taunts.
Lisa says the man was “extremely drunk” and was shouting, “I’ve seen the show. You’re wearing a lot more make-up now, and your eyes are darker and smokier.” Lisa says then it got personal, as he hollered, “What are you doing sitting with old people?”
Lisa says the man then walked over to her booth and continued his rant. That’s when Robert, a long-time reporter with the L.A. NBC affiliate, stood up and said, “Please stop.” Lisa says the man then cold-cocked Robert, punching him squarely in the mouth … and shoved Lisa’s husband to the ground.
They called the police but Robert does not want to press charges at this time. I don’t really understand, someone punches this dude, knocks him out, verbally abuses Lisa and they do not want to press charges? Next question wouldn’t a place like the Polo Lounge have security? Where were they in this mess? Doesn’t make sense….
