Pump Restaurant

Instagram

Entrepreneur, television personality, actress, and author Lisa Vanderpump announced that her restaurants will now be following a mask mandate.


The restaurants are requiring a false Covid-19 test or proof of vaccination at the door starting today. This standard has been growing in popularity across the country as the Delta variant continues to impact people across the globe.

Vanderpump's restaurants "Pump" and "Tom Tom" have both posted this message on Instagram, confirming these policies and receiving mixed reactions. This requirement is polarized just like how the vaccine is, those that are vaccinated seem to support the decision and have no problem with showing their cards while others are saying that they will not be returning anytime soon.

This news is also relevant to Las Vegas as Vanderpump announced that she is opening a second French themed restaurant on the strip this winter.

"We are so excited to be expanding in Las Vegas, and Vanderpump à Paris has been a passion project of ours for a long time,. After living in France for many years, it has been such an incredible journey to make our ideas a reality and, working with our extraordinary design partner Nick Alain, we have created a design unlike anything we've ever seen, with epic visual statements — it is our hope to bring the stunning visuals of Paris into the heart of Las Vegas."

She and her husband own 4 restaurants on the strip so far and it will be interesting to see if they will implement a mask mandate. Her husband seems to disagree with this decision but state policy also may force restaurants to comply with this rule.

Get ready for some fine dining in Vegas as the Vanderpump restaurant gets closer to opening! Hopefully the mask mandate is ended soon but for right now, the staff and management have decided that this is the safest path forward as the Delta variant continues to grow.

Get ready Netflix fans! The platform just announced that two of its biggest stars are joining together for their newest movie.

Netflix revealed to TODAY that their latest film project is bringing Joey King, from The Kissing Booth, and Chase Stokes, from Outerbanks, together to play the two lead roles.

The new movie is an adaptation based off of the hit young adult sci-fi series Uglies by Scott Westerfield. Rumors about a film adaptation for the series have been circulating since the first novel's release, so Netflix's announcement comes as quite the pleasant surprise for fans.

Netflix had already teased that King was joining the cast for Uglies, however Stokes' involvement in the production was completely unknown until Tuesday. Along with announcing Stokes as the latest addition to the cast, Brianne Tju, from MTV's Scream, and Keith Powers, from the Freeform drama Famous in Love, will also be joining.

Uglies takes place in a dystopian society where beauty standards are taken to whole new extremes. Instead of getting your driver's permit at 16, teenagers are instead forced to get a complete reconstructive surgery, making them absolutely flawless--but that seems to be the flaw.

King is set to play the main protagonist of the film, Tally Youngblood, who will do literally anything to avoid her surgery. The roles of Stokes, Tju, and Powers still have yet to be released.

Uglies will be directed by Joseph McGinty Nichol, also known as McG, and Krista Vernoff is heading the screenplay adaptation. King will be executive producing the film alongside Jamie King, John Fox, and Scott Westerfield himself.

A premiere date for Uglies has yet to be disclosed.
