Lisa VanderPump ponders the perils of doing her best "Millionaire Matchmaker" impression.
Hello to you all. Glad to be back, and I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving, now onto the pressing matter of this week's episode...
When I first saw the girls going to that facialist, I thought they were auditioning for Silence of the Lambs! What was that? Then when she plugged Kim into the mains, I thought what is this electric shock treatment?!
What we do for beauty!
After the fiasco of the last two weeks, our trip and all the drama that entailed, this week was a welcome reprieve, we were back home and returning to a sense of normalcy.
In the limo on the way back from New York we made a pact to endeavor to find Kim the perfect man...if such a thing exists, anyway I volunteered to produce the first specimen. Martin, a very close friend of Ken's for twenty years, seemed the likely candidate, I explained the situation to him and he seemed quite excited about the prospect of meeting Kim, and the dinner Mohammed was having for me that week, to thank me for some design work I'd helped him with, seemed like the perfect opportunity.
I knew there would be some nervousness accompanying the situation, on both sides really. It must be difficult walking into this arena...the world watching...but no pressure!
But I also knew if there was a man that could diffuse those feelings, it was Martin, a kind and amusing friend that would treat her well. But who knows? I don't know Kim very well, really just as Kyle's sister, but I see this vulnerability. And I definitely felt sorry for her when she explained how lonely she felt in Vegas as we all went to our rooms and she was alone, so I thought this was an excellent idea for us all to rack our brains, and find her a perfect match.
I think the instigator is always at risk in these situations, as blind dates have a habit of going horribly wrong! I knew the dinner would be an exquisite affair, a surreal evening to be enjoyed by all. Mohammed's house is a sumptuous setting, and he is such a dear friend, so it would definitely be a gorgeous evening with a relaxed friendly atmosphere. But when it comes to matchmaking I walk with trepidation...
However I was pleasantly surprised that things seemed to be going remarkably well, they seemed to be enjoying each others company, but I couldn't understand where she kept disappearing to! Only time will tell how this panned out!
Camille was invited, and for obvious reasons declined the invitation and did not come. But after the feelings that were running so high the week before, I think it was better for all concerned. I truly found the weekend in New York very depressing and confusing as to who said what, but all does become clear in later episodes. Sometimes, as I explained to Adrienne it's just like oil and water: the two of them just don't mix!
Oh well we are, as of right now in a pretty good place but unfortunately...this doesn't last long. This intricate journey we are on has many twists and turns!
I will see you next week, thank you for your comments. I love reading all of your opinions, and after many of you asking on Twitter I will post my roast potato recipe on my website...lisavanderpump.com.
Till next time...Lisa.
