Has Lisa Vanderpump always looked a little familiar to you? Beyond her resemblance to a thin Kelly LeBrock, it could be because those of us who love the '80s recognize her from a long ago music video.

Decades before she was on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Lisa Vanderpump was an aspiring actress -- and she began her career as a video vixen!

Vanderpump appeared in several videos for the British New Wave band ABC, best known in the U.S. for their hit Look of Love. In this YouTube clip, Vanderpump can be seen starting at :48 in the Poison Arrow video.

Little did we know that the highly successful restauranteur -- who just started her own skincare line called Epione -- had quite the little TV career in the '80s and '90s, with roles in such syndicated hits as Silk Stalkings and Baywatch Nights.

But don't think Vanderpump was ever sucked into the crazy Hollywood lifestyle. She married Ken Todd when she was just 21 years old, and the happy couple has been together for 29 years -- despite the presence of Vanderpump's BFF Cedric. They have two children together: Pandora, 24, and Max, 18.
