Lisa Vanderpump

Former Villa Blanca Waitress Makes Absurd Settlement Offer

EXCLUSIVE

This is one for the books.  The woman who was suing Lisa Vanderpump for $5 million alleging sexual harassment at her Villa Blanca restaurant -- among other things, is now willing to settle for $40K if the restaurant acknowledges some ridiculous things.

Karina Bustillos -- who claimed a Villa Blanca manager sexually harassed her in all sorts of ways --  says she'll drop the suit if she gets $40K and the following promises from Villa Blanca:

-- not to serve catfish and claim it's the more expensive tilapia
-- not to serve canned fruits and veggies and call them fresh
-- teach employees not to eat food off customers' plates
-- order kitchen staff to wash their hands frequently

And there's other stuff too, which seems like it's designed to embarrass.

Lisa Vanderpump tells TMZ ... the lawsuit is "frivolous and a clear case of malicious prosecution."

Lisa's writing the check RIGHT NOW, and ordering her chefs to get rid of the canned fruit ****tail & fake fish.

Seriously? These lawyers need to be reprimanded for pursuing such frivolous lawsuits. Then again, if people were actually held responsible for their actions this site might not exist....

A lot of restaurants do the bait and switch on tilapia and other expensive fish. They replace it with cheap fish.

"Vanderpump". Sounds like a name Cickens would make up for a rich socialite, although first name would prob be Tiffany. Yeah, Tiffany Vanderpump.

Proper handwashing? You'd hope that was a praectice written in stone. FIsh? Does anyone think they have a 100% chance of getting the fish on the menu? Here's a clue, people: You can't disguise beef as anything else.

This makes no sense - Tilapia is a cheap farmed fish, why on earth would they even sell it? Nasty.

I don't consider those items ridiculous. Those are all serious problems well known to occur throughout the restaurant industry.
