Lisa Vanderpump

Lisa reflects on being in trouble once again and wishes the ladies understood the business pressures she's under.

on Jan 280

Hope you all have had a good weekend mine was spent at a wedding which was wonderful. Anyway let's see, now what do we have. . .

We see Kim at her autograph signing, which was a poignant scene, full of memories from her past and embracing the people that came to support her. I liked to see that as having grown up in England I am not too familiar with her past.

When we witness Carlton preparing for the party, I loved the fact that we see a different side of her interacting with her children, and I wish we had more of that. Her girls remind me of Pandora when she was that age.

Carlton's party was quite amusing really. I probably have seen most things, having had clubs in Soho and West Hollywood so it wasn't that surprising to me. But for Beverly Hills it was a little risque, shall we say.

Normally gift bags are not from Hustler, but I love the fact that Carlton has the courage of her convictions and really doesn't give a flying fig what others think.

Oh dear, here we go again. I am once more criticized for encouraging my "friend" to take her broken hand to hospital before the knuckle drops and it ends up deformed. I urged her girlfriend to take her as she was being so stubborn with me, but now it was up to her. Then viewing her calling me "motherf---er," I get the point.

Lisa, to Yolanda, you are "just a Hollywood friend". Please don't forget that. Hugs and kisses to the twins...aka Ken and Giggy. LOL. I love you guys!! Don't let jealous people get in the way of you guys being the great couple that you are. Don't stoop to their level. Silence is the best ship home. You can say volumes by not saying anything at all.

I can see why Lisa could not make it to Yolanda's corny painting party.  Hello, Lisa has a j-o-b  !  Several jobs actually.  I admire Lisa for her business acumen.  Not to criticize Yolanda but....Yolanda doesn't seem to have much to do except to think about color coordination,counting almonds,  or whatever.  Besides, does Yolanda actually think that her daughter will cherish some Housewive's painting in her New York pad?  Really???

Lisa - you ether need to take a break from RH or you need to scale down your other commitments.  Your "friendships" are suffering, and it is only because you expect your friends to be........friends.  But by now you should know that they require constant attention, which you aren't giving, for whatever reason.  I sense that you are reaching the end of your rope, and I hope that you'll make a change before you get there - otherwise you're going to be publicly humiliated because that's what they do.  To protect yourself, please, make a change.

Don't worry Lisa.  The ones that don't understand how a business really takes a lot of your time and attention are the ones who just sit home and don't do anything .  They are just jealous.  I love your brass Lisa and I really think you are too good for those ladies all except Joyce and Yolanda. Leave Brandi alone because she is now back talking you .  She can never be trusted.  You stood up for her so many times.  Keep your chin up Lisa. we love you.

Lisa, I get exhausted just watching you running about between the restaurants, the shows, the children [in both shows mind you] and just life, I have no idea how you do it.  Even with your staff to help, it amazes me how busy you are.  I'm sure all the women are busy, but you and Ken have more than one business that you are responsible for.  I'm a little sad about you and Brandi and hope the two of you get back to the friendship you had last season.  Real friends argue and fight but get over it.  We'll see if your friendship was a true one or not.  I have friends that I mother and yes we argue about it and they tell me to back off, but I say f you no, I love you and you need to hear it; this is who I am, this is what I do for the people I care about.  "IF I DIDN'T CARE I WOULDN'T SAY ANYTHING!" They accept it because they love me back and DO THE SAME THING TO ME DAM IT, LOL  Keep the faith, love you and Ken and of course the four-legged babies!

Lisa,

You are very kind and were being such a good friend by wanting Brandi to see a dr.

She should appreciate and realize your good intentions. It is only for her own good!!! Why can't she understand that? Maybe stop helping her and let her learn the hard way!

You are amazing! Always my favorite!!! Don't let the bastards get you down!

LVP - you are the only thing that gets me to stay watching this show.  You are just a glorious breath of pink rose scented air.  You did screw up having Scheanna at your house after her engagement knowing that your "friend" Drinki... I mean Brandi was going to be there.   Maybe you just had to two much to think about, maybe the producers just really wanted her there, and maybe you were tired of Drinki...I mean Brandi... no no I really mean Drinki's BS at that point that you didn't care.  You can't control most of that - but it was probably not the best idea to suggest to Drinki that she has to wish Scheanna well on her engagement.  That was like "WHAT? - That's cray"


That said - Yolo is flesh colored sack of yawn inducing pretense.  Drinki - is a freakin mess that is incapable of any real growth and has sadly worn out the genuine affection I had for her with her self-important delusions.  And she thinks gorgeous but annoying Joyce has to make it all about herself.  


I adore you but you might want to start paying attention more to certain social clues and you don't always have to make a joke or dismiss someone who is being irrational.  Take a moment to listen and then move on.  You will have less aggravation.   


You and Kyle need one on one time to work stuff out.  Do it because you won't be best friends but you have fun together and nothing wrong with have a good pal.  Even one as obtuse as Kyle.

As i read this blog all i can pick out is "I told the people that sent invitations for Yolanda. A car wasn't sent for me."  What?!  Thats it.  I cannot even comprehend how rich people work!  you have to call your friends "people" to tell them you cannot come to her house and a car has to be sent to you?!  Give me a break!

I love Lisa, but sometimes Lisa is too polite. Lisa doesn't have to go to every event that they have on the show. Most of the women on the show don't go to every single event, but when Lisa doesn't go they make a big deal out of it. 


If I was Lisa I would say honestly and openly I don't want to go.... If they don't like so be it. 


Those women don't like Lisa and that is crazy.... :(

I know how butt-hurt I get when friends cancel on me. I get all wrapped up in my emotions because I cherish my few friends very much and look super-extra-happy forward to spending time with them , especially when I plan the activity. Yolanda was probably all in her feelings at that moment and had an immediate emotional reaction that she even might still linger with her. 


All these 2 need is a little time..

I don't understand why these women think that because you are classy, level headed, confident and have your act together, that they needn't be true friends to you, yet they cling to you for friendship. They have no loyalty to you. The lot of them are jealous. You are the type of person I would cherish as a friend because of your excellent personality and your good heart. I hope for you that you have true friends outside of this group who are loyal to you. That is what you deserve.

Lisa,

Seriously,  Andy C. needs to clean

house and rid  BHHW of everyone but you!!

This is by far the worst, low CLASS (Carlton, Brandi) season ever

Kim clearly isn't sober, mixing meds again poor girl.....How does she 

do it...I think I would personally ask Carlton how to hex the poor girl to keep that mouth

shut and  wild arm gestures from happening...Well as long as one has access to a witch,wrong...maybe

kyle..sorry not buying this new improved version, I see the acting bug has bit her again...still very transparent

Yolanda of course thinks she & the King are tooooo good for this show, such Proper Peeps....

The teased hair flipper.....God I'll miss her!

Lisa Your life stye is worth watching, all the others are clearly NOT in your CLASS.

Team Lisa here. It is very clear from the outside looking in that the other women are envious and jealous of Lisa. They do not have half the class she does, nor the smarts.

Lisa, you are too good for all of the B.S. that these other women put you through and you shouldn't have to explain yourself to them! You are a woman of grace, generosity, class and kindness! I am very sorry that Brandi, most of all has treated you so poorly after everything you have done for her. I know what it is like to be in that position to open myself to someone and then have them hurt me that way. Although those experiences have made me stronger they have not changed my heart. God made me this way and I will stay this way and you should too! Just be more careful of who and how much you give to someone in need next time. I know it is easier said than done. Switch the motherly thing to animals (I know you already have plenty!), because they always love you unconditionally and will never hurt you!!!!

I wish you the best of luck and just remember that Yolanda doesn't work and has NO clue of what it's like to run your schedule, Brandi is lost and needs help and you cannot help her. You can only control a certain amount of things that are in your life, not someone elses. Brandi thinks that your love is you trying to control her....shows you that she needs help...professional help. Let her go.

Lisa, I hope this season you have seen the true Yolanda. With her, you constantly have to prove to her you are her friend. Even though you have attended most of her events, missing a tile painting party was not acceptable to her. Brandi once appreciated your concern for her welfare, now she resents it. You gave Kyle a very hard time about your friendship with her, but at least she attempted to make it better. Yolanda and Brandi want to pull you into their direction, and not understanding that you have other responsibilites. You and Kyle best represent what RHOBH should be about. You can keep the rest, but my opinion stays the same. Yolanda and Brandi have to much time on their hands. You are the busiest of all the women, but the women you have alined yourself with do not understand that, and I think the others do.

Since the beginning you have been my favorite. And from reading all your comments I am not alone.  The other women have been trying to take you down. Through TV, Blogs, all outlets of media. They have been waiting this whole season and building up to the big "truth" about you. geez. I feel what I see of you is you. Them. Poor acting. and what on earth did you ever see in Brandy. I am still upset that you were "friends" with her. Yuck!

Waiting for the reunion. Hope you know that most of the viewers tune in for you, and anyone unaware enough to gang up on you during this coming reunion will have to pay a PR person lots of money to restore what they lose in the process. Kyle is the mouth that leads this charge (constant use of the chess analogy proves it).

Lisa, 


You do not need to lower yourself to the level of these mean girls.  It is surprising that Yolanda is such a fair weather friend..she is just showing her true colors I guess.  You, my dear are a class act.

Bravo,

Please give Lisa and Ken their own show.  I am over all the other women and their stories.  Sick of the drama and fighting and would rather watch Lisa and her family do fabulous stuff.  It is plain uncomfortable to see grown women fight and back stab each other like 13 year olds....

Lisa, you are truly amazing and have great clarity in judgment. Carlton is being ripped to shreds because she is not a beauty like Joyce and she is so different. You actually get her. Thank you so much for being so astute. Lot's of people want you to get back together with Kyle, the viper. She is not your friend and you already know how evil she can be behind your back. Always love ya! See you next week.

Lisa, you are everything these women long to be. Extremely intelligent, beautiful, fabulous sense of humor,self deprecating, successful in your own right, and in a long term marriage to a man who adores you and is adored in return. I'm sure this season has been an eye-opener and probably very hurtful. Please try to hold all these positive comments that are posted for you after every blog in your mind and in your heart while filming the reunion show, I'm sure it's not going to be a pleasant experience for you. You've been nothing but good and kind and helpful and funny but that isn't going to stop them all from trying their hardest to make you feel as if you've wronged them in some way Just know that the intelligent,logical women who watched this show just to get a glimpse into magical lives..those of us that live vicariously through you (not in a stalkery way-I promise!), know who and what you are and we think you're wonderful. We'll be the ones watching the reunion and scoffing at every ridiculous attempt to make you look bad. So although it may feel you're being ganged up on, please realize that you have an enormous cheering section out here who won't believe a word of the crazy.We're with you all the way. Rah Rah! We'll be the ones shaking the pink pom poms! Good luck. Keep a stiff upper lip..you have every reason to be proud of your ife.

Your a Hollywood Friend and a Mothering Friend, etc... I don't think any of the other housewives know what a true friend is - why do they think so many people love you and Ken? It's because we would be blessed to have friends as loyal and kind as you two.  My daughters and I love you and your family and wish you had a spin off show of your family life and travels.

Lisa...you are a lady with a lot of class and etiquette....don't mind Yolanda....and as far as Brandi is concerned....she is a loss cause and an ungrateful friend.....

Lisa you're the best.  The only reason most of us watch the show is you.  Kyle is not your friend (not sure if she can be a friend to anyone).  She's is a backstabbing jealous woman who can't stand anyone else's success.  Is there anyone she doesn't backstab and trash talk about?  You need to wake up and cut Brandi lose.  She 's ungrateful and doesn't understand what friendship really means.  For Brandi and Yolanda to join forces against you, while acting like they're your friends, is despicable.  You're a success and work hard for everything you have and if the other "ladies" don't get that, too bad.  I thought Yolanda was OK but she's proven to be a liar and manipulator.  Brandi is her puppet and is foolish enough to allow Yolanda to control her.  I know you've always supported Brandi and protected her against the others (like Kyle) but she has a short memory and she's no friend to you nor is she loyal at all.  She's not your friend or she would be defending you and not joining in on Yolanda's plan to discredit you.  No one believes them.  If Brandi has to crash and burn, then let her.  Let her good friend Yolanda pick up the pieces.

You are the most popular woman on Bravo because you do your best to act with integrity Thanks for that.  If the other women could try to get past their egos, and the self absorbed bubbles they live in, perhaps they could see how ridiculous and petty they come off to the fans sometimes.  Good Luck Lisa.

Now, Lisa:  See how this sounds: "I told the people that sent invitations for Yolanda."  As a fellow lady professional, 9 years younger, you fully well know that you should have called her yourself.  A close friend would have.  This is the only time you have disappointed me.

@youknowitt I always assumed she felt she could "rescue" Brandi based on Brandi's vulgar honesty--what Lisa forgot is that "you cannot fix stupid".  Every rescued animal needs professional assessment--leave Brandi to the pros Lisa--let her go

@wendy18 Lisa was invited through a 3rd party to Yolanda's event. That is bad etiquette!!  As long as Lisa let her know that she was not coming to that dumb painting party, she did nothing wrong.  Yolanda cancelled last minute on Brandi.  You should write Yolanda about what a hypocrite she has become.

momo2

@wendy18  Why? she did what was required.  She responded to the person who extended the invite forYolanda.  Perhaps if Yolanda invited Lisa directly then Lisa could have/would have responded directly.  But in this case, under the circumstances Lisa was correct.  I don't know how many close friends invite their BFF's via their production company in BH or otherwise.

@Nightengale

Carlton isn't being "ripped to shreds" because she's not beautiful, it's because she's angry and mean for no reason. That is different but not in a good way. And I don't think Lisa gets anything about Carlton.

DixieDarling

@Dee70 I have wonder if Kyle is behind a lot of this with all the stupid Chess attacks?  The nutty Carlton coming on the show is the only reason Kyle don't look so bad..

Kyle has never said shes really sorry for anything.. she cries a little and says I'm sorry but you did.. Or sorry but everyone else said??? She never takes owner ship of her on actions.

@nikgrameg @gia1haiti Yo gave an interview at Gather where she repeated that her and Brandi are close with taping but not off camera, Shes the biggest fraud I believe.. But that is just my opinion
