Vanderpump Rules stars Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz are reaching out to fans for help. The co-owners of the TomTom restaurant in West Hollywood want to raise money for their employees. RHONY star Bethenny Frankel is also doing her part to help during the coronavirus outbreak.
All of VPR star’s Lisa Vanderpump’s L.A. restaurants are dark until at least March 31, TV Shows Ace reports. Many workers in the food industry rely on tips. A lot of them have been laid off too. Therefore, they will take a huge financial hit because of the coronavirus outbreak. This is happening all over the world. Restaurants can’t remain open during the coronavirus outbreak. Some are continuing with takeout and drive-thru orders. But, many people are being impacted.
VPR’s Two Toms Donate Proceeds From Cameo Videos
If you’re not familiar, Cameo is a video app. Fans request and pay for videos the celebrity. Videos address a specific individual. So, videos can be birthday wishes, shout-outs or even congratulations, for example.
For instance, VPR’s Jax Taylor was gifted a Cameo from Scheana Shay. So, Scheana paid for a Cameo from Friends star Courteney Cox. In the Cameo, Courteney congratulates him on his marriage to Brittany Cartwright.

The price of the Cameo depends on the relevancy of the star. Some stars charge as little as $50. But, other video shout-outs are upwards of $2,500. The Two Toms are charging just $150 per video, so more people can afford them. All the proceeds will go to their employees at TomTom.
In addition, they vow to match the donations up to $10,000. Check out their Instagram announcement for more info.
