Lisa will have her hands full on “Vanderpump Rules.” Faithful viewers of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” have already been introduced to SUR and one of its waitresses — Scheana Marie. She had an open confrontation with Brandi Glanville a few weeks ago over an alleged affair she had with Brandi’s ex-husband, Eddie Cibrian. The restaurant has provided the setting for a few of scenes on “Real Housewives.”

She works as one of the waitresses at SUR and finds Scheana a threat to her relationship with Jax. She refers to her a “home wrecker” to the other staff. Stassi has served at SUR for 3 years, been with Jax 2 years. Her mouth tends to get her into trouble. Jax apparently drags his feet moving onto the next level in his relationship with Stassi and his immaturity can drive her crazy.
Katie Maloney is a music supervisor when she’s not working at SUR. She’s BFFs Stassi and another SUR with co-worker — Kristen Doute. Katie struggles with being assertive in getting what she really wants. She dates Tom Schwartz, who’s in the same social circle as her friends.
