Taylor's luncheon. . ..Well, how many of you have been in that position? Not knowing a friend wasn't included in a lunch, dinner, party etc., then slipping and feeling like you hurt someone's feelings. Lisa called me, and I assumed she was calling to say "Where the heck are you, Richards?" I felt terrible after. When Taylor explained why she didn't include Lisa, I understood. Their relationship has been strained at best. This wasn't an event where Taylor could have as many people as she wanted. It was one table and she had to choose her guests carefully. Little did I know what a disaster that would turn into. . .
Lisa's Tea. . .this is where it gets difficult. Before Lisa's tea, she told me she was going to confront Taylor and told me she wanted me to "back her," then Taylor called and said "I know Lisa is upset about not being invited to my luncheon. I'm going to tell her what I have been feeling. Will you back me?" Well, talk about being in a bad position. They both know I am friends with both of them. I didn't commit to either one by saying I would back them. I also wasn't going to say what each one was saying to me. Lisa and Taylor almost immediately started in with each other. . .
Camille, Adrienne, and I were too nervous to move or even breathe at that point. It is so complicated because you have to remember we spend time together off-camera as well. Some of what we were talking about was stuff that had not happened in front of the cameras. Example, when Taylor questioned Lisa about calling Camille to say "will you back me and say to Kyle that you're not friends with Taylor?" was a conversation I had with Lisa at Paul's Night Of Beauty. Taylor, at the tea, mistakenly said to Lisa "you told Camille that Kyle said ‘Camille and Taylor aren't friends'. Will you back me? " She meant to say that I said "Taylor and Camille are friends". Confused yet? I am!
