Lisa V.: I Understood Brandi's Frustrations
Lisa V. thinks everyone missed the point of Brandi and Lisa R. conversation about Kim.
Well, it's the final leg of this exhausting race. The sun sets on the Hills of Beverly...
And there we have it. So this season I felt was a little more illustrative of exactly who these complex characters are...Some weathered the storm with a modicum of regretful actions and others offered up a complete view into the depths of their inner being. Angry accusations, shrouded with deflection, were the actions of some incompetent of dealing with truths that should be confronted.
I understood the frustration of BG as she endeavored to restore the relationship that we once had, jokingly, maybe sometimes even genuinely, and we were in place of harmless banter, as I witnessed the bonds broken between the other women, the bond that last season was united by a common enemy...me.
I think there was genuine remorse that a friendship which benefitted her initially when she joined the group and we had both enjoyed was unsalvageable, a different one could possibly have replaced it, but once ties of loyalty are broken, you are on the defensive.
I never once said the slap was hard. The endless accusations last season of lying, deportation, bankruptcy, Ken abusing Yolanda...all that was accumulative and there was not enough there to counter balance it. I remember her clearly stating, "I fed that bitch " in regard to me on Andy's show, which was hurtful as we all the know the truth.
In a nutshell, did BG state that Kim needed a intervention? No, I don't know she did.
When I spoke with BG, of course I felt empathy for her situation with her father, but that had nothing to do with me. I hear he is doing well, thankfully, but I barely know him. It would've been hypocritical, after Amsterdam, to call offering sympathy, when in the last nine months there had been no interaction between us at all, apart from filming. BG states she loves me...Easy to say, as easy as saying sorry, but actions are more important than words. The way you know if somebody loves you is the way they make you feel. If somebody is sorry, you would feel reassured that they would try not to perpetuate the same behavior. The big question here is, I didn't change from last season, so why this desperation to have me back in her life? Now is there a realization that maybe last year she was wrong, malicious, and vindictive? That should be the conversation. Anyway, I digress. One thing I know for sure is if my father's life was held in the balance, I would be there at his side, not arguing about the dynamics of a superficial conversation, but it was our final party at the end of the season.
In a nutshell, did BG state that Kim needed a intervention? No, I don't know she did. I believe Lisa misinterpreted her saying, "Maybe we all need an intervention" as "Maybe we all need TO DO an intervention." Many other things were said, and it begs the question, was BG's allegiance to Kim? When talking about Kim's fragile state publicly to her friend Jen and then Lisa, I would say not. I know that Lisa left that conversation after many statements from Brandi with the impression that Kim needed help. That was the point...The emphasis should not have dwelt upon one word. I had urged Lisa not to intervene in Kim's sobriety, but she was motivated by her personal history and felt justified in confronting her.
So there we have it, another season. I eally enjoyed Eileen and Lisa joining the cast...
I hope Kyle and Kim can find resolution away from cameras, I pray Yolanda can find her way to better health, and BG understands that relationships need to be treated with respect.
I thank you all for watching and your support...I will see you at the trilogy...
As always...Love, Lisa
