Heather Marianna from Bravo’s short-lived sequence, Tour Group not too long ago dished concerning the time Peter Madrigal from Vanderpump Rules saved her occasion on the final minute when she didn’t have a bartender.
Marianna says she is aware of Lisa Vanderpump and her daughter Pandora. “I started doing stuff for their dog foundation sponsoring that for their gala and just all kind of went from there,” Marianna stated on the Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef podcast.
But she recalled how she was throwing an occasion and had a bartender booked upfront. “So literally in the morning, the bartender cancels of the event,” she stated. “So guess who got here and stayed the day with me? He’s such a pleasant man. Peter! From SUR and Vanderpump Rules!”
Peter Madrigal saved the day
Not solely did Madrigal step in on the final minute, however he additionally refused to cost Marianna something for bartending. “He came and bartended,” she exclaimed. “He didn’t even want me to pay him. Of course, I did because I didn’t feel right about that. But he went to the store and got everything we needed to finish the bar. Like the guy is so nice!”
Marianna didn’t intend to have Madrigal behind the bar since he’s a solid member on the sequence and manages SUR. She reached out to him to see if he knew anybody who might step in on the final minute. “I just messaged him and I was like, do you know any bartenders?” she stated. “And then he called me and he was like, I called a couple of people. He’s like, and then I could hear him on the phone.”

“He was like, Oh, you know what? I’m just going to come do it for you. And I’m like, are you serious? Like, I literally wanted to cry because it was like, everything was going f**king bat sh*t, you know, behind the scenes!”
The occasion was falling aside till Peter Madrigal got here to her rescue
Marianna stated it was greater than shedding the bartender that was nerve-racking. “Like I had this b*tch go nuts on me the night before I had to ban her ass, I had to hire security,” she added. “It was like so much sh*t, so much sh*t behind the scenes. And I was like, now I don’t have a bartender. I don’t even know what f**king drinks we are making because the bartender who created the drinks isn’t showing up.”

“He was the coolest guy,” she stated about Madrigal. “And then after the event, we ordered a bunch of SUGARFISH boxes. Stacks of boxes and I said, thank you. He went home. It was, he’s such a great guy. Like he saved the day for sure.”
Madrigal beforehand instructed Showbiz Cheat Sheet how he stayed out of the drama on the present. “Lisa told me a few times, ‘Peter you’re the manager. Don’t get involved. You tell them what to do,’” Madrigal recalled. “‘You be a hard ass and don’t get involved in the petty bulls**t.’”
