You guys, we have some very exciting news. Remember how last season Lisa Vanderpump propositioned Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz about possibly going into business together? Well, it seems like it is actually happening for the Vanderpump Rules stars.

The topic first came up at Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney’s wedding (yes, they’re still married) and at first Schwartz was pretty reluctant. He previously told Bravo,

“At first I was just like ‘Oh my god, I can’t do this. I don’t want to tarnish your reputation that you spent 30 years building.’ Plus, also, in that moment I was emotionally fried. I just couldn’t even process what she was proposing to me.”

But it seems like he’s overcome his cold feet. According to TMZ, Lisa is making progress on her new restaurant in West Hollywood, which will be located on the same block as two of her other restaurants SUR and PUMP. Although they have yet to sign an official contract, she’s apparently speaking with both Tom and Tom about being involved in the project at some point.

And it just so happens that the new restaurant is set to open in November — right in time for the new season of Vanderpump Rules. Yeah, no coincidence there.

Originally, Vanderpump had suggested a bar to the fellas since Sandoval has a lot of bartending experience, but it sounds like the new spot will be focused more on dining, although we imagine there would still be a bar in the restaurant.

Stay tuned for more info. In the meantime, enjoy the new Vanderpump Rules spinoff featuring Jax and Brittany.
