Lisa Jones' Diary

Lisa VanderPump reveals her reason for hating costume parties.

Well hello again. This week's episode was a welcome reprieve from all the drama the week before, certainly an insight into my life at the restaurant Villa Blanca. It is always stressful as there is never any certainty of how these charitable events play out.

Ken and I have created many of these in the past, and as I don't have an assistant -- because of my ego thinking I can do it all -- I prefer to do things myself. It is absolutely key to be supremely organized! I admit I was irritated by the fact that I had asked Cedric -- which is rare -- to do something of importance for me, and he didn't. That did not sit well with me at all. I work hard, and as the responsibility of the kitchen, menus, visuals, models, and basically as you saw there was no organizer, falls on my shoulders, I could've done with his help. Every penny that was made went to this young girl, whose life was devastated overnight by this vicious attack, and also very importantly to draw much needed attention to the children's burn unit. Ultimately and thankfully the event was a success, which managed to pay for further operations for Nina.

I am thankful to Kyle that the upset at her table regarding Camille was kept from me. When you put things in perspective, which is one of the real positive effects of doing events like these, that argument, even though we all were still reeling from the shock,in my opinion, fades into insignificance!

We had time at home with my love dog (see Giggys blog), and prepared to go to Taylor's Roaring '20s. I hate costume parties, or as we call them in England "fancy dress." It comes from an experience 10 years earlier of being informed that it was fancy dress, so Ken went as a pink rabbit and I was a hooker, to what turned out to be a black tie event! It was not a positive experience and has stayed with me!I had decided to swap with Cedric, which I think he enjoyed more than me, but we surprised Ken and even the crew that awaited us downstairs as we made our grand entrance. I love to have a laugh, and knew that there would be a few surprised pretty made-up faces at my choice, but more importantly we had fun.

I personally don't understand how you can be screaming at somebody one moment and embracing them the next! I know for me that would be difficult, but if they can put it behind them, then so be it! I don't think the two of them will ever really understand how things deteriorated so rapidly. Well you will see how things pan out...

Anyway, I wish all of you a very happy Xmas, and thank you for your comments. I really enjoy reading them.

Love always Lisa.xx

Brandi: I Don't Enjoy Anger or Grudges

Brandi explains why she's ready to move on, as long as it doesn't mean kissing a**.

I’m back in L.A. after a wonderful trip to visit my family. I’d like to thank everyone for their support regarding my father’s health. Dad is back home and on his way to what will be a slow and long recovery, but he is getting better and that’s all that matters. I’m so grateful I was able to hang with my boys and family and just kick back, cook, watch my nieces and boys play, and relax.

So tonight’s show is pretty drama-free for me, which is great, because I’m in a happy place and sometimes watching old drama unfold can set me back a little, emotionally. And can anyone believe that we are on episode six, and I haven’t hit the sauce yet? Don’t worry, it's coming. It's not fun to be sober all of the time.

Lisa Rinna introduced her parents and her Medford, Oregon hometown to the audience tonight. I love to see where people are from. It was a heartfelt moment where she shared the regret of visiting her childhood home for the last time and the guilt of living far away from her aging parents. It was very moving watching Lisa R. trying to instill the gravity of the situation of aging, illness, and finality of life to her teenaged daughters. After the normal teenage resistance faded, they realized it was a serious trip, and I’m glad she insisted her girls accompany her on it. I have to add that after seeing Lois Rinna, I can see where Lisa’s got her eyes from, and Frank Rinna’s paintings are amazing. I want one.

Kyle’s BBQ was next with everyone having a pretty good time. It was a very nice party. Yo was looking perfect as always. Meeting Eileen was fun and talking about Days was fun, too. Yes, I was a fan back in the day. Once we sat down, Kim’s old acting stories about faking tennis on Magnum, P.I. were the best. Eileen’s husband, Vince, is really nice and had great stories, too. He was on a lot of TV shows, like Kim. Kim and Vince kept the laughs going.

It was nice to see Mauricio and hear about another vacation. He is always cool and relaxed, and it’s nice to see him doing so well. Anyway, when all is said and done, we all saw who the true star of the BBQ was…Yolanda’s sandals. Want!

Moving forward doesn’t involve me constantly kissing a**.

Brandi Glanville

Lisa V. and Ken were there, and despite the awkwardness, it was really nice to see them again. You could probably tell how uncomfortable I was feeling. You can also see, I tried. Hard. It was a bit awkward, but I did try my best to put the past behind us. Obviously this is going to take some time! Kyle said it best: “Lisa likes to hold on to grudges.” Again, Kyle said that, not me!

I don’t enjoy power plays, holding on to anger or grudges. I prefer peace, apologies, amends, and moving on. Life is hard enough without making it harder. Maybe relationships change but definitely trying for a peaceful coexistence is what I'm striving for at this point in my life. That said, moving forward doesn’t involve me constantly kissing a**. I won’t do that. Relationships have to be equal, right?

So, until next week, I hope all of you come watch my housewarming party. You’re all invited, and there’s going to be plenty of wine--my own personal label, actually (not that we have a name, yet)!

Happy holidays, peace, love, joy, and health to you and all your loved ones!

XOXO,

Brandi
