Lisa Vanderpump

Lisa VanderPump regrets the trip to NYC, but, as always, she tried to make the best of it.

on Nov 18, 20100

Well we knew we were in the middle of a minefield last week, but things just went from bad to worse. I rarely feel helpless in a situation, but because I hadn't witnessed the initial altercation it was difficult to mediate.

I had no idea that Taylor had been involved in provoking Camille at the time, and could never understand what made Camille so upset when she confronted us downstairs. I wondered if it was because she had only just digested what Kyle had conveyed to her earlier. I was mystified especially, as Camille referred to the plane ride over...what on earth was going on?

Until now, when I watched this episode, I had no idea that Taylor had given the impression to Camille that I had been gossiping about her. That is absolute nonsense! I will deal with that at some point!

Also it was never clear to me why Kim didn't come up with something, anything, to placate them both, when she was the one that had been present in Vegas at the initial disagreement. I said to Kim, "Don't start on your sister," as Kyle was emotionally upset and exhausted of defending herself. I took Kyle out of there, and was annoyed that Kim had that attitude.

I personally found the whole debacle in New York pretty hard to deal with. I could see no resolution as the two of them were adamant that they completely differed in their opinions of what transpired. But I could see quite plainly that Kyle's indignation at defending herself, coupled with Kim not sticking up for her was really taking its toll. I recall feeling such regret at taking this weekend away from my husband and Giggy, when I should've listened to my instincts. That is why I asked them to sort it out before we embarked on a weekend together.

Next time, if there is one, I will know better!

The whole evening was a complete fiasco. And the next morning when Kyle and I went to Christina Makowsky's to see her new collection, she was so unsure of whether to go to the opening. But, as always, when Kyle and I are together, we can normally manage to find something to laugh about! The whole situation at the premiere was difficult and I felt torn. I definitely had no intention of ruining the night for Kelsey and Camille, and knew the only way to move forward was to act like nothing had happened. I actually was pleasantly surprised at the way all concerned managed to handle the situation.
When we returned home I knew that Adrienne would be aghast at the turn of events, and as I reiterated the scenario to her, I knew she didn't quite understand the magnitude and depth of feeling that had played out that night. Oh well, you will see how things evolve, trust me it wasn't laid to rest yet!

Love your comments, thank you so much for your support, generous remarks, and for following our journey. Giggy and I are on Twitter: @Giggythepom and @LisaVanderpump. We love tweeting!

You bring an air of sophisticated amusement that I think some of the Housewives on other shows would like to project, New York or D.C., for example. But you can't beat the real thing--when you've got class, you don't have to try so hard to convince the world of it, do you?

Lisa, You are the most wonderful housewife ever. I wish you and your family the best of luck on your endeavors. I always enjoy your segments of the show. I think you are a true friend to the other housewives. Even when you are frank about your opinions you do so with class and without nastiness. You and your husband are just cute as can be together. I would love to see you and the other housewives try a campout outing- that would be very fun to see. I am sure you could find some great pink camping gear. You need your own show with you running your restaurants.

Lisa, As for the 25 year old model, the only thing she has on you is that she is younger.....THE END!!! You are gorgeous, classy, sophisticated and most important very real. I don't know how it happened but my husband has started watching the show with me and you are his favorite. Your birthday show when you were surprised with a visit from your son had both of us in tears. Happy Holidays to you and your family.

Alegria!!!

Oh Lisa, it's so sweet to watch you as the optimistic mediator to your friends. I luv you. Your laid-back character shows viewers how to eeeez through things, not take them so seriously.

I'd hoped RHOBV would have less drama...especially this soon. Hopefully, the show will calm down and allow us to enjoy you all.

You are my favorite housewife but in the disagreement between Kyle and Kim you might not have been entirely impartial. Why do you put the blame on Kim? Couldn''t you read between lines? Kim most probably heard Kyle say something similar to what Camille was charging Kyle said. And Kim could not bear or was scared to counter what Kyle was asserting. That was why Kim never spoke up. Which was good for her because had she spoken up, every body would have ganged up on her and blamed her for all the mess.

ABOUT TAYLOR: IT DID SEEM TO ME THAT CAMILLE TWISTS EVERYBODY'S WORDS. SHE DOES NEED HELP. I DO THINK THAT TAYLOR IS A BIT NAIVE ABOUT PEOPLE. I DON'T THINK SHE SAID WHAT CAMILLE WAS SPEWING THAT NIGHT AT THE TABLE ABOUT THE PLANE RIDE. CAMILLE HEARS WHAT SHE WANTS TO HEAR. I THINK CAMILLE USED TAYLOR A BIT TO FIND INFORMATION OR ANYTHING ELSE TO USE ON ALL OF YOU. SHE THINKS SHE IS OF SUCH HIGH RANKING IN THIS LIFE AND IS SO SAD!!!! CAMILLE WAS BEING SNOBBY. SHE FELT LIKE SHE WAS IN THE SPOTLIGHT AND GOT POWER FROM THAT. PLEASE BE EASY ON TAYLOR I DON'T THINK SHE SAID ANYTHING TO CAMILLE THAT WOULD MAKE ANYONE ELSE UPSET BECAUSE CAMILLE IS IN A LEAGUE ALL BY HERSELF!

YOU ARE MY FAVORITE, YOU LIKE TO HAVE A GOOD TIME AND YOU ARE SO NICE. I LOOK FORWARD TO WATCHING MORE OF YOU.

I love your style and you are definetly my favorite. I love love love all the pink shirts with the roses. They are gorgeous. Would love to know if they are still available and were to purchase. I was born of french parents in North Algeria and came to the US when I was 10. I really believe that our european upbringing gives us a different attitude towards people and what is important. I have read most of your blog and agree about you being the most real. I cannot stand Taylor, complete money hungery phony. Sorry , I guess some US has rubed off on me. Best Regards, Bisoux Janine

How long is this unsubstantiated argument between Kyle & Camille going to dominate the show? It's already overshadowed Kelsey's opening, Kim's (sentimental tribute to her mother) jewelry line, Adrienne's family tragedy.

Now Lisa is saying the matter is not yet put to rest. Unless this nonsensical disagreement is pivotal to how the rest of the show evolves (apart from the ladies taking sides) one wonders how much longer the audience has to suffer Camille's histrionics.

Surely with this interesting group there are more entertaining story lines.

I think your husband is adorable and I enjoy seeing you with your family.I do like your positive outlook and how it shapes how you deal with people and situations. I was surprised at both Camille's and Kyles behavior at the restaurant. I think they both wanted the last word more than resolution. I think you were unfair to Kim. She had a perfect right to wait for the conversation to calm down before she involved herself. I'm not sure the confrontation between Taylor and Kim was that different from the on between Kyle and Camille. Taylor went off on Kim over something Kim believed she had said and Taylor denied. Both you and Kyle chose not to involve yourselves. It didn't escalate because Both Ladies let it drop.Being caught on tape, ended any dispute that might have continued. There is so many different ways to see anyone situation. I think that you were very supportive of Kyle and were a good friend. Dispensing valuable advise that salvaged the weekend together. Look forward to seeing more of you.

Hello Lisa. Although I do not normally write on these blogs, I just had to tell you, you are the classiest of all of these young girls. On top of that, I realize you are a bit older,but you really can not tell by looking at them. Truthfully, all I can see is lip injections, botox, and face lifts. You may be older, but mam, you run circles around these orther women. And that includes you figure. Best Wishes.

Lisa, You are a lady of high caliber! Indeed you are a graceful, beautiful English woman! I wonder where the real women of high class are in CA, the ones you call friends don't match your class at all! They are so common just as any woman from the projects, of the US. Aquiring money has not helped them in any way. (Your husband is a good example of what a man should be to his wife). The show is interesting because of your fresh breath you add to it. If Americans present such products of couples, just because of money it's doomed. Come to E.Africa, you'll be happy to distinguish between the real high class! Take care and keep out of trouble.

Lisa ! You are my favorite housewife by far. You need your own show!! I love your personality, style and wit. Your house is to die for, it seems like a "home" and not just a giant showcase of your money. I love the way you have it decorated, it is so exquisite.I wish I could see more of it. And, I love the clip where your hubby saved the naughty turtle and where he sat with the other husbands and said how much he missed you when you left for NYC. I can't wait for the next show. I am so glad that you and Giggy are on there. You put a smile on my face.

Ciao Lisa, I must say it! You are the best houswife ever. I am a transplant from Italy ( moved in USA 10 years ago`) even though I can speak and read English I am still learning the culture. I started to watch houswife`s shows since the biginning of times. Never missed an episode of all houswifes. I wanted to get a full immersion cultural shock. As I am going trhu all your blog, I did not find a sigle negative comment. You are 100% loved by the American public and a life example . Please share your secret to all of us still trying to fit in this culture. If you write a book I will be the first one in line to buy it. xoxo Alessandra

Dear Ms. VanderPump, I so enjoyed watching you with your children. I hope your son gets in to the music school he is interested in, and that he finds the perfect niche for himself. Having a teenage son myself, kudos for managing to get him on camera!

I think most people in the food business, have great family connections, after all, for those of us that do it from the heart, we're merely nurturing people.

Continue to be well, Karen

Lisa, A rare treat. A woman who is confortable in her own skin and who does not feel the neccesity to downgrade another women to make herself feel good. A woman of class and taste. Keep up the example to the other women and perhaps they will follow suit.

So honestly...I am totally Team Giggy...but I had to get all into this blog because Lisa...you are the perfect woman...perfect Mother, perfect wife, perfect sense of humor..I can't say enough good about you

As the Mother of a 20 year old son who is an music major with a voice minor..I really felt your tears and your anxiety of your son going off to the music institue...My son joined a frat last year (one that does a lot of community service) but I was sick for days about it worrying that something horrible would take place...thus far...everything has been great...

I look forward to seeing you on the show and look forward to reading your blogs...

Good Luck to your son

You are by far the classiest housewife. I think you are beautiful and graceful and a few of your cast mates should learn a thing or two from you.

I've said that twice in my post on here, and I think "Loving Lisa" is a great title for her show. We would all look forward to her tips on style, elegance, cooking, decorating, parenting, doggie-parenting, the list goes on.......

Lisa,

Your house is a real home, lots glitz but you can tell its a real home done with impeccable taste, how refreshing. Great Floral estrangements throughout your home and your gardens are lovely.

You and Kyle are fantastic, and are quite enjoyable on screen together. Enjoy your holiday season with your family....

YOUR THE BEST you completely handled the situation in the best way possible. It was FANTASTIC! You kept it really classy and a still managed to keep friends with everyone. Every time you have the commentary it is a breath of fresh air. Air without the mean stench of tackyness so commonly found in others.

Hi Lisa, My husband and I watched the episode in which you cooked a lovely filet and potato meal for your family. Is there any way you could share the potato cooking technique? They looked very delicious.

We love you on the show...the voice of reason and intelligence!

You are a woman to be admired and emulated! Thank you!
