Lisa Vanderpump

Lisa ponders Taylor's marriage, and the white party.

on Jan 7, 20110

First and foremost, I would like to wish you all a happy New Year! I spent mine in the Bravo clubhouse witnessing the marriage of the Gigster to Grandma Wrinkles!

But yes it's so good to be back, so this week it was party, party, party!

We start in our rose garden. There I was cutting roses, one of my favorite pastimes and essential jobs, but with my husband on my case about the eviction of Cedric, the experience was not quite so pleasant. He is becoming increasingly frustrated by his actions, and rather irritated with his relaxed attitude about looking for somewhere else to live. It has become a constant source of aggravation for Ken, and I suppose in a way for both of us. However when somebody doesn't really have another option it is difficult to push the situation…but it has been over a year.

Kyle was intrigued at Pandora’s party about Cedric’s life, and asked many questions and listened intently to the stories of his troubled past. But I know Kyle is not a huge fan of his, as she has warned me to be careful and skeptical as to the validity of his experiences. We will see as only time will tell.

Pandora’s boyfriend Jason started to make a speech and I waited with bated breath for the proposal that would make us all so happy....nothing! I don't want to put pressure on them, scratch that, of course I do! I adore the way they act together our families have become entwined in each others lives in the last few years.

Hello Lisa! My post is about Cedric, You have done wonders for Cedric but he can't dwell on his past forever! It’s time to move on..Yes, he is grateful but how long can you live off someone else. He is not a child anymore. He is an adult!! You would think he would want to show you he can be self sufficient. He works for you..TELL HIM TO SAVE HIS MONEY SO HE CAN GET AN APT..Its not like you won’t see him. But why would he want to move out when he has everything he wants???..He does play with your emotions by the way!!

AND PLUS-How does this situation make your kids fee?? You daughter and son are independent making their own way..while Cedric plays with mom all day..how sweet!

You are making so many assumptions based on editing and a glimpse of these peoples lifes. Not once has Lisa nor anyone else stated that Cedric does not have a job. "Your husband always..following behind" how can you say always, that is what we see on the show but to assume that is how it always is, is utterly rediculous. Her husband has a mind of his own and seems very secure in his manhood which is why he does not seem to have a problem carrying "their" dog. They seem very happy and comfortable so why would you assume that he is not being "taking care" of. "put some spice back" sound so condesending. I have never seen or heard Lisa being disrespectful to her husband. Maybe you are confusing LIsa with Taylor. Everyones marriages are differentt and the dynamics are different so who are we to judge and give advice. Especially when we are basing our info on a "reality" show. Also, if a person cheats that is their choice. It is cowordly to blame their partner. We can not control what others will do. Blaming women for their husbands` infidelities is ignorant.

You are absolutely stunningly beautiful and a lady. You fit perfectly in your surroundings, your house, your clothes, your roses...it's wonderful! You have a wonderful attitude and are intuitive about the people around you. My only comment is that Kyle should value her relationship with you and honor it more than she did at lunch. I lost a lot of respect for her and her behavior around a new friend, Taylor, while not honoring an old. You are indeed SPECIAL!

God bless you and yours Lisa. It appeared you were the only one 'keeping it real' on the last episode, "Turn, Turn, Turn."

Awkward seems to sum up so much of what transpired:

1. Taylor was awkward when meeting with you and Kyle. 2. The scenes with Camille and Kelsey- awkward. 3. Paul's comments to Mauricio's mother re a mini face lift-awkward 4. Paul's comments to Adrienne when shopping- awkward 5. Kim's speech at Farrah's party- awkward 6. Camille's friends asking when Kelsey was returning-awkward

Thank you for adding so much graciousness to the show.

Lisa, You are HILARIOUS!!! If the resturant/club thing goes south, you should seriously consider comedy! Smart, beautiful AND funny !! I just love you and your crazy doggie! xoxox!

Lisa, I adore you and I love your relationship with your husband! I completely understand your connection with Cedric but I truly don't get what you see in Kyle. She is so lucky to have you as a friend but from what I can see she has taken you for granted. I think Kyle likes to rub things that are hurtful in people's faces. She knew that inviting Taylor took away from your time together and rather than being sensitive about it she was quite the opposite. All the best to you and your family.

Lisa, you are beautiful, you are intelligent, you have class and you have a very handsome husband. What more could you want. Money! Well, you have that too. You are my favorite housewife and Ken is my favorite husband. Regarding Cedric. I don't know whether to believe his story but it does appear he is taking advantage of your big heart. Why should he want to move out. You have a fabulous house. Quite a setup for him. But I feel you should show that adorable husband of yours some respect and ask Cedric to leave.

JewelZee

I agree with you. I just don't get it. Please just Google him. From his Bio alone you can clearly see that he can make it on his own! Something is just not right about Cedric. You all need to Google him. IMO I think its time for him to hit the road.

Lisa. I believe Cedric's story but if he's afraid of being on his own, which I can relate to, and not him just loafing, what about a spinoff that shows him looking for work, any jobs he attempts and if he goes back to schooling, what happens there. Inevitably he's going to attract attentions that may help his career as have many people in reality shows.

Good luck Cedric. Get out there and wow them!

Lisa, Your and Cedric's antics are hysterical. Thank you for your elegance and wit. Adrienne was correct, you're too pretty to dress as a man! Also, I adore your style. QUESTION: Where did you buy your shirt, the tunic blouse with the buttons up the back and the front? I can't find it anywhere, and I love it. Let me know, PLEASE!!!! I can't wait for the reunion.

With all due respect, Lisa and her husband Ken, have shown more heart and Love and respect to Cedric's situation than most "strangers", really, to this person, would "ever" extend themselves to do. When Lisa requested that "he" show up 15 min's early for a very important event at the 'business", to which provides "him" what "I'm sure" Ms. Lisa pays him quite well, he "refused" her, and did NOT show up and "pitch to the party"!! Now that is absolutely disrespectful, and an "insult" to Lisa and Ken, who have MORE than ameriolated his "poor me circumstances".How "many of us", and our parents and Grandparents before "them", have NOT suffered from a "bad childhood", and the sad, sad memories of said circumstances, but you "pull yourself UP" BY YOUR BOOT STRAPS, And you "GO FORWARD" with your life, you don't just "stand still", and "wait" for Someone "else", to make a life "for you", you make one for yourself!! And, often, out of "nothing", "He", does not have "nothing and no one", he DOES have Lisa and Ken and their family, but Lisa and Ken, should have "their lives", and "privacy" for that matter, "BACK",and in full. He "needs" to grow up for goodness sake, I'm sure, they, or rather Lisa, has paid him well, and will continue to do so, [as long as he gets his lazy tuccos-to work, and on time], so really, there IS no real viable "reason" he cannot get his act together, he just does not want to! Would you? Lets see, hmm, a mansion lifestyle, or a regular working man's digs?? He IS milking "it" w/ her, because Lisa has an amazingly, loving and giving heart, and he IS taking advantage of her, and THAT is not right. If he "wasn't" taking advantage of she and Ken, he "would have" had his butt "there" 30 min's before she needed him, to show, if nothing else, his gratitude to her, for "all" she and her family have done for him, I've had my "life", as a waitress-food server, bartender, etc....I once closed our dinner house-Peppermill, at 4:00a.m., Easter eve.,[I was always a closer], I was to be "off", on Easter Sunday for the 1st and only time in 7 yrs, 3 servers called in "sick" before 6:00a.m., and I was "back", showered, re-dressed, on the floor @ 8:00a.m., [no sleep, cause they had to call me right back in],I commuted 37 miles,one way, AND,..I "CLOSED" again, Easter night!! Not "one darn complaint", coffee, coffee, and I made a ton of tips!! I went home w/a smile, the respect of my manager, and a lot of $$!! What could be better?? But I did it myself, with just a strong, work ethic, and "I'm a woman"!! Cedric NEEDS to be TOLD: "Suck it up Cupcake", life IS hard, hurtful, disapointing, and guess what?, Sometimes you just "have to do, what you have to do", ie:Suck it up Cupcake......move forward, and move on out of the mansion.[He'll still be Lisa's sidekick!!]

Lisa,

PLEASE, PLEASE READ THIS RE: CEDRIC!!!

I have cried the last 2 episodes hearing of Cedric's history. He is SO blessed to have you and your husband love him and give him the "family" he so deserves. He and I share so much. I wish I could chat with him. I don't have the same history, but we share the loss, the feelings. I have no idea why my mother had me. She was always telling me she hated me, I was fat, (always underweight), ugly, no one would ever love me and was never hugged or told I was loved. She beat me incessantly and forced my father to while she watched. Enough of that, I'm so sorry I shared too much. I just want to thank you so much for giving Cedric love. I am still searching for that love. I am fifty, have a 23 year old daughter to which I failingly exposed her to wrong decisions. I have attempted OD's seven times, etc. I hope SO MUCH Cedric has therapy. And possibly medication for depression. You are such a good person, Lisa. Giving love without strings to Cedric... you are a godsend. Thank you.

Why don't you take him in and take care of a grown ADULT. Everyone has issues and it's up to Adult Cedric to make a life for himself. It's not Lisa's job to take care of a grown man. Get real. This is real world.

Lots of Camille's? That was a cheap shot. Someone like Camille could never snag Ken. Camille should just leave the show she is ridiculous and probably the most self centered woman I have ever seen. Lisa / Kyle / and Adriene (sp) are great and smart women, they know what their doing.

Lisa, you are a true treasure! Beautiful, smart, class, and a good soul. Regarding Cedric...you are smart and kind and you will appropriately deal with it. As far as Taylor, THANK YOU!! Finally, someone is addressing her participation in the Kyle/Camille issue. We viewers have been a bit disgusted that she was getting away with her behavior in this situation. It has been very frustrating to watch her and her complete dismisal of responsibility. We hope you, ALL, clear the air with Taylor during the reunion. She needs to come clean and apolojize for all her "input" that cauaed this situation turn so mean and ugly. Thank you for your wonderdul and comical comments. You make this show so much more interesting. Can't wait for the next show! Good luck with everything in your busy life and keep these women honest and on their toes! ; )

Lisa, You are wonderful and so genuine. I find myself agreeing with so much you say. I think you are spot-on about Taylor. However, I do feel you are a bit off regarding Cedric.

I am bi-polar due to very traumatic events in my life. I'm 40, currently disabled, but worked since I was 14. If what Cedric says is true, I can understand that those events left him scarred and possibly robbed him of ambition. He could have depression, ADHD, PTSD etc. Therefore, he needs treatment. He needs goals. He needs responsibilities. Lolly-gagging about is the worst he can do.

There are a few things that bother me the most about him. He seems quite manipulative. In last night's episode, instead of understanding Ken's request, he jokes about being put off on the side of the road for some instant guilt. Then, as Ken said he would, he whisked you away and played on you with his 'you;re the only family ....' line. If you are the only family he has, he should respect you and Ken more. He should understand that

Also, I am quite put off (from at least what I've seen) by his extreme lack of respect and lack of ambition. How dare he take Ken's car and not even fill it back up. I'm sure there are other examples. The huge warning sign to me is that there are so many ways he can work, earn his keep and show his gratitude, yet he doesn't even seem bothered. I see that as a warning sign that he may just be using your kindness and generosity.

Please be fair to Ken and your children. Get Cedric some help and a starting point and let's see if he's really interested in bettering himself, or your next party.

well said regarding Cedric! He needs help and direction. Ne needs goals and responsibilities. Sitting by the pool isn't doing anyone any good.

Love you in the show this week. It was nice to see you and your husband working together to resolve the Cedric situation. Your family cares for Cedric no matter if he lives with your or not. I was very disappointed in the scene that showed Your lunch with Kyle and Taylor's opinion. Kyle and Taylor acted so sophomoric both ladies came off rude and childish. After everything we have seen I'm not sure why you are friends with Kyle. That does speak well for her, so there must be something about her that I don't see. I'm still in shock at viewing the Limo Clip!

Love, love, love that you've finally seen Taylor for the troublemaker she is. If Kyle refuses to listen, her loss. It'll come back to bite her. Can't wait for the reunion.

FINALLY Lisa! You have called Taylor out on the NY incident! I can't believe it has taken so long. I've been scratching my head as to why you ladies didn't bring this up before. Kyle has been attacking Kim for arguing with Taylor, does she really not understand that it was TAYLOR who got Camille all fired up by telling her everything that was being said at the airport??? Kyle open your eyes and stop yelling at Kim, she "got it" right away that Taylor was to blame! What really irks me is that Taylor was participating in the same conversations, she was NOT baited into calling Camille insecure. Well at least you, Lisa, finally had the wherewithall to call a spade a spade! Taylor needs to stop playing the victim all the time!

You seem lovely, but really bamboozled by Cedric! I would put less time into helping a man who probably is scamming you and put a little more attention to the wonderful hubby you have. Ii get the empty nest sadness. I get the need to mother, but then why not take on a foster child or someone who you know is REALLY in need and not just sucking the gravy of the gravy train??!!

Hello Lisa,

Cedric needs a good therapist and should have been getting that help all along. I believe he's suffering from post-traumatic disorder.

He isn't going to easily forget what happened to him. A therapist could help him to put it into perspective so he REALLY understands that it wasn't his fault. He needs validation that the adults in his life utterly failed him as a child.

I don't think he knows how to feel like a legitimate person in this world. Until he gets help, I'm afraid he's going to be stuck in that mindset.

Lisa, I wish I had a friend like you in my life - straight shooter all the way and a LOT of fun to be with. You made a very valid point with Kyle at dinner about Taylor. Wow! Why has no one picked up on this; or if they have, not said anything? Taylor appears to be sweet, but there's something there that's not totally "clicking". I think she needs to spend more time working on her marriage than intruding on dinner dates between girlfriends. As for Cedric - two words - Tough Love. You've made it perfectly clear that you'll always be there for him. But he has to get his own life and make his own living in his own apartment/home. Period. If it were between a happy co-existence with my husband or an often lazy houseguest - there's no question which I'd choose!

Lisa, you are my favorite housewife. I love your attitude, your class, (your house! haha), and you are just a beautiful lady. You may be my top favorite housewife of all time because you haven't done anything {yet at least} that has made me go "OH MY GOSH!". You are so caring and you stay classy all the time. Bravo to you for a great season. You are awesome.

I like you the best on the show I do not know why you thought Taylor started the problem in New York with Camille, did soething happen that was edited to make you think that? when I saw them talking alone Kyle said to Camille something about feeling a little insecure with being on her own and Camille got her nose out of joint because of that which was bizzar Taylor is a very nice person well it seems that way on the show. I always fell for her when crazy Kim attacks her all the time What is her problem?

LISA, Yare the sweetest person mi have seen, especially coming from Beverly Hills. I really beleive that no matter how much money we may or may not have, there will always be kind hearted personas as yourself, and I would be so disappointed if Cedrick has been playing you all this time. it just doesn't sound real. good luck, and he needs to move on.

blessings to you and yours MAYEA

Lisa you are probably one of the most amazing housewives in this whole series. I think that your passion for your family really speaks about your character. One of my favorite moments was when it was your birthday. You told your son that he always says "what he can't do" rather than "What you can do". That made me choke up a little. I think that your kids are lucky to have you as mother.

I just watched the episode "turn turn turn" and your moment with Cedric just reminded me of a mother comforting her child. It made me tear up when Cedric shared that pain about his relationship with his mother. To see how he turned out today, I would call him a true survivor.

To sum it up your ROCK!

OMG your puppy is the second best! LOL, my puppy I got from the Tampa,Fl. pound and she is the best little thing that has ever happened to me, when I went Lisa the other night to Wellington,Fl. for a grand Seminar for the Equestrian Riders, I was the only one that called and said,I cant come if I dont have my baby,OH no-No problem, and then when I got there everyone was so jelous-LOL-didnt mean to get that responce, but any way Girlfriend,well we dont know each other, but HONEY you tell it like it is, and I love ya for that, us here in Florida do tell it like it is,hurtful or not, but Not that carp-wow-you hit it right on the nose, I was so surprised when no one actually had a fit when you said-HELLO how started the crap all over again in Vegis, but I do watch and I had to come here to say one thing-I just Love you,your an true American Now-and Andrienne she is just the bomb also, me & me alone I just know that you 2 are real! And thats great, because I see these shows put these women in a spot, and it makes you wonder, well are they all losing their husbands because it was happening any way-thats why their husbands let them do this? BUT the real marriages, are making it through, and thats the 2 of you,your marriages are great-funny-and great! Loves from Florida and yes you & florida are the only 2 states that are warm!

Thank god for Lisa VanderPump. RH of BH makes Thursday the best night of the week-- largely due to you. It is so refreshing to have someone on this show who is actually intelligent, witty, gracious and authentic. You are amazing.

The beginning of tonight's episode really upset me when you planned to have dinner (or drinks, whatever it was) with Kyle and she proceeded to invite Taylor along. Anyone who has watched this show in its entirety can clearly see that you have been the only person to truly stand up for Kyle. After she was repeatedly attacked by Camille, Camille's "friends", psycho psychics or had problems in her life, you have proven to be the best friend to her. It upsets me that she is making you feel excluded while she is being flattered by a weaker woman who looks up to her to the point of obsession. I thought Kyle was smarter than that, and more genuine. Anyway, I hope Kyle isn't disloyal to you and make its clear what an important person you are to her.

I do enjoy watching you and I do agree with you that Taylor has a lot to answer for especially with Camille. I think all of you are too harsh with Kim but then every group needs to have someone to treat poorly and use as a whipping boy. Maybe all of you need to rethink how you treat others. And I side with Kim regarding the guy you set her up with...I think you were wrong to call her and treat her so rudely and it is a two way street..he could have called her or she could have called him or no one needed to call....and there is always email...and if they do not want to get together again...so be it..their business. I would not have appreciated all the hard pressure and Kim seems to be the type to go the opposite way when there is too much attention/pressure. I do like you...and have fun watching you. You and your husband have a rarified life and it is fantastic that you both met young and knew that each were the one. The marriage has lasted and you both are still in love. Cool. Nice for you to be there for Cedric and you are right he needs to start looking for his own life. But these were a few things that bothered me...

Thank BH for Lisa!!!
Thank BH for Lisa!!!

Lisa,

Each week I love you more and more...and tonight was no exception!! I was so happy someone (besides poor Kim) finally addressed the fact that TAYLOR stirred up the drama that night with Camille. I cannot stand Taylor and am so over her relationship problems. She was so rude to show up to Villa Blanca and interrupt Lisa and Kyle's lunch! And then to hold Kyle's hand like that!! I am glad to know you realize Taylor's role in the Kyle/Camille fiasco and I hope you call her out on it SOON!!!! I adore you, Kyle, Kim and Adrienne but I believe Camille and Taylor need to go! Taylor is awful, especially to Kim and hopefully someone( a.k.a You) sets her straight.

Hi Lisa, I think I know why Cedrix is lax. His upbringing was so traumatic that he is unable to exert himself anymore in life. I feel he should seek psychiatric help because he still shows signs of depression because of his lack of initiative and ambition. He seems like a good guy he just needs counseling by a professional.

If you watch the show, you will see alot of Cedric working at the restaurant. Doing flower arrangements with Lisa and working out in the gym. It is obvious that he has no where to go. What do u want her and her husband to throw him out in the street. I'm sure he knows how everyone feels. Which is a very hard place to be, UNWANTED! That is a horrible feeling. Just let these people live their lives. They have enough money to let him live there. He doesn't bother them as it seems on tv. There is alot we don't see. He has had a horrible life. Give him a break and let Lisa and Hubby deal with Cedric. If they want him out i'm sure he will leave but for now he's a good addittion to the show!!

"not being taken care of" umm...Is this 1954?? Why does Lisa have to "take care of her man." He's not a 12 year old child. Give me a break with the whole she's so lucky to have such a rich handsome husband bit. He is rich and seems very kind, but he is just as lucky to have her!! There is always one person in a relationship who is more outgoing and the other person is more content to stand outside the limelight. That doesn't mean they dont love each other and have a very fulfilling relationship.

Miss Joanna Renee:

First of all, I think it is a bit of a stretch for you to refer to Lisa's gay friend Cedric as her "boy toy", is it not? Secondly, her husband (as Lisa, and Ken, for that matter) has stated that they both consider Cedric as a part of the family, so Ken is not "following" behind or taking a back seat to Cedric, in any sense. Third, Lisa and Ken NEVER said that what happened in Cedric's past has harmed him in a way that made him unable to work a job. They simply said that his story and past has caused them to feel very protective of him. It is not the "reason" that they are so good to him. They are close and consider him part of the family, his past is only that, his past, It is not the REASON they help him.As far as putting SPICE back into their marriage and Ken "NOT" being taken care of, that is your opinion. If you really paid attention, I think you'd see that he and Lisa seem very close and happy, intimate, etc. Cedric lives in the guest house and, remember, HE IS GAY....he's NOT Lisa's "boy toy". I'm gay and I can speak from experience that it is SOOOOOO annoying when ignorant people who just DON'T understand go on to presume that just because we are young, good-looking men with close female friends who happen to be attractive and fabulous women, dumbos who don't have gay friends don't seem to be able to comprehend the FACT that gay men and straight women can be VERY good friends, with NO SEXUAL TENSION AT ALL....(in reality, we're more like the relationship of sisters, if anything)

Wow, talk about judgment! You see a show on tv with tidbit clips of Lisa's life and you make such harsh judgments about her and her husband's marriage. That was very rude. You must be unhappy in your own life to be saying such negative comments. Lisa is a beautiful lady with class, grace & panache. She's a strong independent, successful woman and maybe her husband is just demure & quiet. Hence, a nice balance. Rethink what you say next time woman!

You're the best Lisa, the voice of reason. A good example to all! For your own sake and Ken's and Cedric's... Tell Cedric from now on to save his money up and you will match it, dollar for dollar, and help him to move out. For his own sake he needs to stand on his own two feet. And Ken is the head of the household. It's disrespectful to Ken not to listen to what he thinks Cedric should do. Cedric is hoping he can use his situation to soften your heart so you'll allow him to stay with you forever... Pandora and Max are on their own, pretty much, right? If you really feel Cedric is part of your family then treat him like family and teach him to stand on his own two feet and be an honorable, decent human being. And think about it, if anything happend to you, what would Cedric do then? It's the right thing to do. God Bless You!

I have known a lot of "Cedric's" in my time. I'm sure his upbringing is very true, but regardless of how you were brought up (I was also brought up in a similar situation) people need to move on. I am a 24 year old single mother, work full time, go to school full time ... If I can do ALL of this by myself and by my own means, there is no reason why Cedric can not get a job, or at least enroll in some college classes, or do SOMETHING. Of course no one knows the whole situation, I also have a soft spot in my heart for people who are going through hard times, but it gets to a point where people can and will take advantage of you and your husband. He is very lucky to have you guys. You need to set a time line with him, he has so long to do this, or that, make an effort at least to do something. He is milking his situation and manipulating you and your husband.

Lisa, If you are as truly lovely as you are on TV, you must be an amazing to meet in person. You have such a great wit and humor about you. I look forward to your interviews on the show and what you think about certain issues that are on the show. I find you amazingly honest and forthright. Good luck with Cedric. I am sure that is a difficult decision ahead of you. I am sure you will handle with grace and dignity as you have handled yourself on the show. Thank you.
