This episode was definitely a change of pace. There were no fights, which was refreshing.
The snide remarks from Kim? I've never said or tried to portray that I was perfect. No one is. Sounds like she obviously thinks I am. LOL.
Choose a career?
It's obvious her mental capacity only allows her to do one thing at one time ... and we all have an idea of what that is.
It is always great to visit Los Angeles. I love it there! On the other hand visiting my mom and dad always gives me a reality check that one of my siblings is no longer with us. They say time heals all wounds. I don't think the pain will ever go away. I have my good days but there are bad days as well.
NeNe was a riot! What was she expecting? It was great to see my grandmother and the rest of my relatives.
NeNe is not alone in being amazed at how Asian they really are. That is exactly why I stand by "I am black and Chinese" when asked my nationality.
I'm glad you've all been given a glimpse of where I come from. I appreciate your unwavering support!
Until next week!
Your grandmother is adorable! Wow, she sure looks good to be in her 90"s. Thanks for showing where you came from. I think all the housewives should do the same. Try to keep it real.......... there are some individuals that seem so fake!
Lisa, You are beautiful and your family is beautiful as well. It was really nice seeing the love that you all share. Time does heal all wounds and there is no hurt that heaven cannot cure. As for Kim, I was a little upset with her comments at dinner myself but you are beautiful, Ed is great, your kids are great, your businessES are great- don't you understand why KIM is hating!!! LOL I must admit however, I was a little disappointed in you and Sheree at the King Tut showing. Seemed to me that you two could have found better conversation than Kim's singing and/or her conversation with Kandi. Don't turn into them- stay the upscale chic on the show- we all love that!
I thought it was great that you express that fact that you are black/asia you have the best of both world to teach your children. Your mother is very funny I like to chemistry you guys have, Your brother Andre is so cool he is not afraid to express himself and he is sooo cute 2.
Hey Lisa I LUV U GIRL! Just ignore Kim. Your husband is sexy girl! Watch out cause you know some woman go after married men. I'm sorry to hear about your brother. I lost my brother to senseless violence like 3 years ago. I know how hard it is. Just keep your head up. Good Luck in whateva YOu do.
I think you are great. Your attitude and smile really rock the cameras. I'm sorry about you losing your brother.
You are missing something if you think people unwaveringly support you. They do not because your fighting attitude is turning people off. Please work on it, because otherwise you are going to have tons of haters.
Luv ya girl.
I actually think you handle yourself well when dealing with others and situations. You have way more dignity and tact then Kim does. Kim needs to learn some restraint and how to be respectable. I think it says alot about the person that you are, that you do manage to have multiple businesses and still have a happy family.
I can really relate to you! i too come from a large multi-cultural family. People are often amazed to see a black woman with close Eastern European family member,lol.
Moving on, you continue to be my favorite-your adoration for ALL THREE of your sons and your husband is apparent. As far as your costars go, its clear that you and NeNe have become close, but I feel the producers of the show made a big mistake terminating DeShawn and brining in kandi, no offense to her, I just think she adds no warmth and friendship to the group.
Good luck with all your business ventures and I hear your new "old" house is just gorgeous!
Lisa, I don't see you as a "hood or ghetto girl." You are muli-cultural, well-rounded, and career oriented. Thank You for allowing BRAVO, the viewers, and NeeNee to visit your family. First, it was nice to see your parents and siblings. Like Jill (Housewife of NewYork), family is important - especially our parents. Second, your diplomacy - Hello to all, you are chinese and black - NOT JUST BLACK. And, you don't act black- by the way, what is acting black (NeeNee)? You give attitude when needed, hello.
I love your outgoing personality. I believe you are a great example for any woman that is a wife and career motivated. Personally I think it is great that you wear so many hats and can still find the time to enjoy family life. I truly believe in my heart that Kim wants your life, she envies you because she doesn't have the guts or motivation do the things you do. But it is okay because the haters will hate and if you don't have any then you're not doing something right.LOL Keep up the good work and stay strong.
Lisa, spending time with your family is a blessing, so sorry for the lost of your brother,it's painful to lose a family member, just remember the good times that you shared.California is huge and looks like the shopping place of the world other than NY.You and NeNe had a good time she is alot of fun. About your nationality you said that people would'nt accept you, well that was their problem. God loves you Lisa that's all that matter's and you have a beautiful son and a wonderful husband. Take care
It was nice to see an entire episode with no fighting I also am glad to hear you say you would like to sit down with Kim and discuss things becasue that is the mature thing to do, everyone isnt the same and wont be friends but you're both a different reflection of women. Continue to be motivated only by having a good time and doing the right thing, the world is full enough of all the other stuff.
Lisa, I loved this episode. We got a chance to see a little bit of your background and your family, which seem to be very proud of you.
As far as the thing with Kim...*shaking my head*, What does she do again? How does she make a living? Exactly! She just sounds bitter and jealous of a successful woman. She can only dream of being as successful as you are.
She mentioned on your blog that you and Sheree were obsessed with her, well it looked like to me when she went to dinner with Kandi, she was obsessed with YOU. She contradicts herself all the time.
Keep doing what you are doing! I wish you much more success.
I just want to say I love watching you on the show.Also I dont understand why would Kim even say you're a crack whore and you dont look like one and i cant even imagine doing that.I done seen some crackheads sooo Kim needs to stop.I hope you guys can hopefully sit down and talk to each other and clear the info. you guys been hearing. Also,i'm glad you finally face your fear to go to your brother grave. I seen my blessing to you and your family. I also wish you the best of luck to you and Ed to bring addition to the family:)Well,i Love you guys and i wish o could come to ATL and hang with you guys:(lol Like i said befor i love the show and you guys...Oh,yeah cant wait to see your clothing line!!!
I thought the episode was really nice to take us to your neighborhood with your family. Your mom and dad are adorable and so is grandma. Spending time with family is so important. NeNe acted her usual crazy self in LA. I mean that conversation with the gay guy at the pool was hilarious. Looks like you and NeNe are tighter than Kim thinks.
OMG!!! I have A HUGE MONEY MAKING IDEA FOR YOU!!! I think you should capitalize on your fame to try and get your jewelry onto HSN or QVC (home shopping networks), maybe even your clothing once that is up and running. You could make a ton of money, just off your popularity alone! I know HSN sells some Top Chef items, so there is already a relationship between Bravo and HSN. Good luck! I would love to see your great personality selling your products!!
Best, Kristen Brown
you have a nice family my sister past away about three years ago it so hard for me to go back to Tennesse because she was my angle she love no matter what it hard go and see her she still in my heart i watch u but i still say im not ready yet ...do you kick kim azz p.s your the best
I didnt like the fact that Nene was trying to dig dirt on you, calling you a hoodrat etc. watch out I dont trust the sudden friendship.
lisa, luv you girl. you seem to be the most level headed as well as easygoing and fun. havent watched the last episode yet, but i like the way you carry yourself.
Last night's episode with you visiting your family was refreshing. As a resident of Metro Atlanta, I was starting to get turned off by all the infighting on the show. It was not showing Atlanta in a positive light. Continue to stay classy, family oriented and business minded. Make your haters your motivators.
Thanks for updating the blog....it was short but sweet.
It was really refreshing to see you visit with your family. It sadden me that you were so sad, but eventually you will find peace-some times it takes a little longer to except it when our love one expire. I am so glad you felt a little relief after your visit to the gravsite.
I love the outfit you were sporting on the after show. You were really rocking your outfit.
Your honey-dew is a handsome-fine man! Gosh I love it when they show him....whew...whew!
michelle, for lisa you and nene seems to get along better than the other girls.i really like you guys .lisa you and your husband is a good match . don't let noone come between you guys. take care and if i was you i will give him how many kids he want.
You are such a doll! But why was your girl NeNe (who I love as well) trying so hard to tear you down on last night's episode? I mean she kept insisting that you were a hoodrat/ ghetto girl, neither of which you fit the description of. Do you think she is jealous or trying to bring you down "her level" lol wink wink?
Hi Lisa, Last nights episode was byfar one of the best yet....NO FIGHTING...a few shots hear and there, but it was nice to see all of you enjoying life and doing yall thing.
You are on of my favorite individuals on the show. I love the friendship that has development between yourself and NeNe. You two seem like you have a genuine good time when you with each other. This past episode was GREAT. I wish you all the best with the show and every endeavor that you persue. Also, the love that you and Ed have displayed on the show is incredible and like no other. That is a bond that seems to be unbeakable because you two are good friends and communicate with one another. May God continue to bless you two and everything you do.
I loved seeing you at home with your family this episode! I am also half-Chinese, and it was so refreshing to see a biracial family represented on TV. Kudos to you and your family for actually talking about the unique issues and discrimination that multiracial families face.
What did you call the drink you and NeNe had on Rodeo drive - a maragrita with a splash of OJ? They sound wonderful.
Lisa, I believe you've demonstrated that you are someone who doesn't like chaos or confusion. My late grandmother used to say, some people, no matter how much you pray, talk to, try and be the example to, befriend, etc., are never going to change. I don't know any of you but I believe the age old saying..."If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck.... Stay strong, our prayers are with each of you..
I SAW LAST NIGHT EPISODE AND I LAUGHED A LOT WITH YOU AND NENE. YOU, NENE, DWIGHT AND KANDI ARE MY FAVORITES!!
YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND HAVE A GREAT RELATIONSHIP. YOUR CHILD IS SO BEAUTIFUL AND INTELLIGENT!!
BETWEEN THE PROBLEMS WITH YOU AND KIM, STAY AWAY FROM HER AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. ONE THING I DO NOT LIKE FROM THE HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA, NEW YORK, AND ORANGE COUNTY IS THE JEALOUSY, HATRED, ENVIOUS AND ATTITUDE. I BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE GENUINE, PLEASE STAY THAT WAY.
I LOVE YOUR WARDROBE LAST NIGHT. IT WAS LOVELY!!
YOLANDA GARCIA BERDECIA SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO
I am sorry, your parts of the episodes have been quite boring until this. Don't get me wrong I think you have a wonderful family, your baby boy is a cutie. I was very interested in seeing your family and I think I seen some pictures in Essence but to see the interaction on television was interesting.
I was watching Thursday, August 27th episode and all of sudden I recognized the Lakewood Manor, I yelled and called my mother. It was confirmed, Lisa, grandmother is my grandmother's neighbor, they live in the same retirement home, my parents recognized Lisa's grandmother, what a small world.
LISA, JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT I THINK YOU HAVE THE MOST LOVING RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR HUSBAND HE IS SO ATTENTIVE TO YOU AND YOUR NEEDS THAT TO ME IS SO SWEET. YOUR SON IS A CUTTIE (LOVED THE HEADBUTTING SCENES). THIS COMES FROM THE HEART LEAVE ALL THE GOSSIPING TO THE OTHERS AND CONCENTRATE ON WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO YOU YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR BUSINESSES, SO WHAT IF YOU HAVE CLOTHING LINES, REAL ESTATE DO YOU AND LET THEM CONTINUE TO TALK ABOUT YOU BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY YOU ARE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT.JUST WAS CURIOUS AS TO WHY DONT YOU HAVE YOUR OTHER SONS WITH YOU AND WHAT HAPPENED BETWEEN YOU AND X-HUBBY KEITH SWEAT?
I just think your a riot!! I love the way you carry your self in the show...and girl you do have a HOT husband....keep on
I am sorry about your lost. I can't really say I can relate because i never lost a close family member like a brother but i do understand you. I lost my grandmother in april of 09. My heart stills cry for her. One thing i had to relize is that she is still with me in my heart and memories. I will see her soon some day. I just think of it as she is on a long vacation. I wish you the best and i will prey with you.
I just wanted to tell you that i can relate to you when you were talking about your brother. My brother was killed when he was 19 and i was 11 when he died. I know it is a hard thing to deal with but just remember the good times that you guys had together! I still cry everyday when i think about my brother too! Keep doing you!!
Hi Lisa, It was heartwrenching for me to watch you talk about your deceased brother. I also lost my brother about 19 months ago in a car accident. He was 25 at the time - SO much of his life ahead of him! And like your brother he was the oldest, the leader, and the life of the party too :)
I completely agree that the pain will never go away and some days are better than others. I think the pain is slowly changing into a scar that I am proud to bear because it is the part of my brother I carry with me.
ANITA KANDI. I DON:T NO MUCH ABOUT YOU. DONT CHANGE FOR NO ONE. IN ALL YOU DO PLEASE KEEP GOD FIRST. HE IS THE ONLY ONE YOU HAVEST TO GO BEFORE. I:AM A MOM @ A GRAND MOTHER. SOME TIME IT:S HARD TO LET OUR CHILDREN GO. ESPECIAL THE GIRL'S WE MOTHER WANT NOTHER BUT THE BEST FOR OUR KID"S STAY STRONG. AND STAY AWAY FROM THE MESS.
You meant your ethnicity, not your nationality. Ethnically you are Black (unless you know which African group you came from) and Chinese. Your nationality is United States citizen (not sure if you have any dual citizenship). Sorry... that just bugs me when people misuse that word.
Does anyone know what designer makes the sunglasses Lisa had on in Episode 5 where she's at her parents house/and on the rooftop in Los Angeles?
Lisa, you make me sad because you have so much potential and a family to keep you real. Unfortunately, you fall victim to NeNe's need to bring negative energy into every situation. Stop trashing others on the show...let NeNe do it solo. Let us see more of the real Lisa we love and less of the Lisa being a follower and not a leader around the vapid NeNe.
Lisa: Kudos to your grandmother. In her nineties and still lucid and lovely? Sad to say, I also think Kim's mental faculties are out of whack. I couldn't believe the remark she made to Kandy about you sticking to ONE thing. WTH...any woman in today's world that manages being a wife, mother, daughter, brother, sister and an entrepreneur in several areas should be commended.
Whould someone please tell me what Kim does for a living??? I come from the real world where most of us work for a living, but I have no clue what she does. I could care less if she doesn't work, but the comment she made regarding your endeavors made her fair game.
And if I may say continue to love your man and let the world see what strong black love looks like !
Maybe you can all make an agreement to not speak of anyone who is not present. Also consider who keeps telling you things! I've learned to give the benefit of the doubt, until I personally experience what someone else told me for myself. I have moved all over the country and usually the person bringing someone up to me was the one to watch out for! Also the constant need for drama by an individual is something to take note of, some people are addicted to it, it is their m.o.! Take care if you can't get any where is a one on one discussion with Kim, move on! Snide comments and making fun on or offf camera is not the way to go either! All you pots have called the kettle black!
the episode from last night was heartfelt, however it seems odd that you chose to take NeNe, esp. when she goes on interviews saying that she's not friends with any of the cast members. she says she has a business relationship with y'all, which is odd b/c i don't take my associates to family vacays with me!
also, i think you need to address the rumors of getting evicted, otherwise it might hurt your various lines of work- particularly in real estate. do you speak any other languages, aside from english? like mandarin?
lastly, how come it's ok for you to say what you've said about Kim, but she can't say anything about you?
I WANT TO KNOW WHY IS IT OKAY FOR YOU TO SAY KIM IS CRAZY AND SPREAD THAT RUMOR AND IT'S NOT OKAY FOR KIM TO TALK. YOU PRETTY MUCH SAID THERE WILL BE A PROBLEM THE NEXT TIME YOU HEAR IT. YOU ALL ARE TALKING ABOUT EACH OTHER....WHICH IS SILLY AND GETTING OLD FAST.
Hi Lisa! You are my favorite on the show and I want to say sorry for your loss. I must know what sunglasses you were wearing at the cemetary, they were so HOT and I have been searching the net for hours trying to find them! If you wouldnt mind divulging that little tidbit I would forever be greatful!
Thanks and keep on keeping it real girl!
Lisa, On your receent show, I saw where you lived and I wouldn't think in a million years that you had lived in the hood. I believe that you are proud of where you came from. Iam proud of you and how much you accomplish in your life.
