Oh dear, we were doing so well...
It was very strange watching this week’s episode, to see Camille interacting with her friend Nick. If she knew then what she knows now, I am sure it would've been different, but in life hindsight is 20/20. I know exactly how it appears, and I am sure Camille will be judged accordingly. However if she was still married now—with Nick and his wife securely placed as Kelsey and Camille's close friends—I think we would watch and view it differently.
Camille, in her own words, says she prefers the company of men. I understand that, but I think she would benefit from letting her guard down with other women—not being competitive, just enjoying the camaraderie that a female relationship can bring.
That is what I find so fascinating about these shows—how relationships change, deteriorate, solidify, whatever path they take—we, as the viewer, enjoy the ride and the occasional emotional roller coaster this entails.
At the beginning of the show, Adrienne invites us all to Las Vegas to see Jay-Z so we decided to meet at my restaurant, Villa Blanca, for drinks so that we were all familiar with each other before the weekend. Some of us hadn't met Taylor’s husband, so this was a great excuse for everybody to introduce themselves.
Well Vegas was an incredible trip and going with Adrienne is definitely the ultimate. We had amazing dinners at the Palms. The suites were fabulous. Everybody seemed pretty relaxed and then after two days of laughter and bantering, things took a turn for the worse. There was an altercation between Kyle and Camille that I wasn't witness to, but I could already see the tension and animosity that has arisen from just that singular conversation. It was the catalyst for the dynamic radically changing between us all. Emotions were running high, and you will see in the coming episodes how difficult the situation became. My regret is that as I was sitting next to them both at the time of this conversation, and I dearly wish I had witnessed the exchange. Then maybe I could have tried to mediate and placate them both, to avoid the discord that ultimately ruined future gatherings.
Oh well I will see you next week. Thanks for watching, and I love your comments!
You made me and my teenage daughter laugh so hard tonight over Taylor and the cotton candy! I love how you can be witty and honest without attacking.
You are so funny and please tell me what kind of dog Jiggy is! He is the most adorable thing I have ever seen! He looks alot like a stuffed animal, and he was sooo cute in his costumes. Thanks for bringing him on Andy's show.
Lisa,you and Adrienne are my favorites of this edition,such classy ladies:)This may become my favorite edition!
Your comments on the show remind me of that wonderful saying "If you can't say something nice, come and sit by me"! I find you absolutely delightful. You are so witty and right on target in your observations. So much good fun!
Hi Lisa, Yeah...that cotton candy episode...oh my! lol...you were so funny! Loved that you just grabbed the whole thing! I don't even think Taylor had any idea what it looked like when she was eating it! I think she was trying hard to NOT get any on her lips or face! lol
I like you and so far I gotta feeling you are the one that kind of trys to keep everyone together...getting along. I think you are probably the one that could be the mediator.
When Camille was talking about her breasts and/or dancing...lol..wow I would hold on tight to my husband....only natural to feel that way. Anyway, I already commented on Camille's blog that i think she should TRY to get to know other women and not just go off on her sexy way prancing around other men. I also told her she will probaby end up happier and in a better life AFTER the whole divorce if over. Who knows. I wish her well too!
Anyway, i will keep watching!
Take care, Kim San Diego, CA
You are my favorite! You are so down-to-earth and REAL!!! You are hilarious and you don't even know it!!
You are like a breath of fresh air! You have beauty, class, wit and humility and the RHOBH are lucky to have you on this show. I know that the episodes don't show us everything, but I believe they capture all the housewives essence. Please keep the great commentary coming!!!
You are truly a breath of fresh air. It is no nice to see someone that has wealth and not let it affect who they are in the real sense. Your humor is just so enjoyable and it appears you and your husband have a good relationship. I so enjoy watching you, I am not the least bit envious of your status. Feel the same way about Adrianne. What classy women you both are. Love it!
Everyone here in Westwood and Orange County loves you! You are by FAR the most genuine and hilarious on the show. I loved every comment about Taylor's husband. You were so on top of what everyone else was thinking. Please never leave the show!
Lisa, not only are you a stunning beauty, but you are just so hilarious as well. I cracked up at the scene where you grabbed the cotton candy and pretended to makeout with it. I agree with betts8, you can be very honest in a playful way. That is unforuntate that Kyle and Camille are arguing over some silly comment that may not have actually been said. I guess we will see in the episodes to come who's telling the truth. I think that Camille using that excuse about preferring the company of men is a cop out, I have known many women that are like/have that same mentality but it's really only because they don't have the social skills to know how to be a friend with a woman. sometimes, men can be just as much drama as women can be.
I really like you but your negative comments about Taylor's husband were rude and tasteless! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Maybe you should think before you speak. I have not heard any of the other housewives say one bad thing about you!
LISA just love you...you are so funny and classy..just love you....your dog is just so adorable....you are the reason i watch the show ....
Best Line of the Night! Skirt so short I could see what she had for breakfast! Fabulous! You have been my favorite from the first episode. You're confident, charming, stunning and funny as well. Hope to see you for several more seasons.
~Hi Lisa & Jiggy...~
~Really enjoyed seeing both of you on Andy's show Thursday nite..and Jiggy was so ADORABLE in his various Halloween outfits..altho I did feel a bit sorry for him having to go thru all those wardrobe changes..lol~
~You are such a beautiful and classy woman..and you show that a woman can have "style and attitude" without being a "b***h"..~;)
You are a lovely lovely lady with a darling personality......I'm enjoying you, and your husband too, so very much. I think you and your husband could easily do a show of your own.......I know I would watch.
I was just wondering what kind of dog you have..the one you had with you on the Andie Cohen show
Hi Lisa, I saw that on the producers blog everyone was giving the ladies a hard time about blogging. I think that all of you are good sports for just being on the show and letting us have a little peek into your lives. I read the blogs, obviously, and sometimes there are some harsh comments, so I would be hesitant too, but I guess you ladies can take it. My comment is that I'm impressed that you all seem like well grounded, caring women that treat everyone with respect. Will maybe one of you is a little showy (sorry Camille). I guess I was expecting more wealthy snobbery, but out of all the housewives franchises to date, you all look like you might be the most relatable and fun ones so far, especially you and Ken.
You are a joy to watch...all your pink, and all your fabulous style. With the utmost of everything, you and Kyle seem to be the most friendly, genuine and down to earth. Maybe that's why you gravitate to each other...good company knows good company. LOVE THE SHOW! and love your dog!
Lisa is my favorite housewife by far. I've watched every season of every city and there simple is no contest. Wit, wisdom, humor, lovely and real. Lisa needs her own show! Just about being fabulous or something like.
You definitely have a pulse on what we the viewers are thinking. Your commentary is a delight to watch and brings a much needed comedic touch to the show. I would love to have high tea with you!!! In my office, we have voted you as being the one person out of the group of Housewives that we are most drawn to. Good Luck!
I love love love your dog. What breed is Jiggy? He is adorable. I think your house is wonderful and if you've earned that kind of a lifestyle ENJOY it! Just don't forget who made it possible--God our Father. :)
I love love love you. You are by far my favorite HW on the show. Your comment about Camille's dancing and all that was missing was a pole was the best yet.
You are my favorite! YOu are so quick witted - I just love your comments and your sense of humor. You are never insulting, just entertaining :) And Jiggy is the cutest little baby ever - I loved how he kept falling asleep on the after show - SO precious - I would take him everywhere!
I agree with the other poster here. Your comments about Taylor's husband was rude. Try and be nice and keep those comments to yourself. If she thinks he's a cowboy then so be it. The dog you have is so cute. I'm looking forward to watching next week. Thursday night is my new favorite night of TV.
Just wanted to add to all the love on your page...you are by far the funniest, most honest and most charming HW ever!! What a breath of fresh air you are...and your comments-classic! love you, love your husband....and your little dog too. PS-Loved you on Andy Cohen last night..I laughed the whole time!! But that Nate got on my nerves...he was so pompous and rude! Ick! XO
Dear Lisa, You are simply delightful! I wish I had a neighbor as down-to-earth as you... truly. I also like that you have fun, and conduct yourself with dignity. Really quite refreshing considering the other housewife shows! Give Jiggy a squeeze!! I have schnauzers and am now thinking of a teacup schnauzer!! Too cute!
You are the most quick witted person ever....what I really like about you Lisa you don't take life seriously, you kind find something witty to say about any and everything...always positive... I laughed so hard when you described your first impression of Taylors husband.and for the other viewer who thought you were being negative, to be a business person that he is suppose to be, do you find it strange that he can't keep conversation going with friends of his wife..usually people who are in business can intermingle with other people, he has absolutely no networking skills, he is dry and boring no fun at allll, but can be very demanding when it comes to telling his wife what to do, did he even kiss her and thank her for packing for him?... When your husband said you were funny he was not playing.... I look forward to hearing what you think.. It is halarious. You weren't to pleased when Andy on his show was joking with the other guests about his religion, the look on your face told it all...I hope they print this one, because some people may not know why your demeanor changed. You are stylish, classy, and you think very logicial.. You were right about your analogy about when people make comments people don't receive it sometimes the way it was meant, generally speaking. Andrienne is so lucky to have you as a neighbor and vice-versa.... I love your accent and your playful ness..for example the powder they were applying to their face...your response was GREAT and quick witted...fun fun fun....and your dog is soooo cute....I look forward to hearing more of your quick wittiness..Oh, the husbands, excluding Taylors husband, have really been good to watch along with you guys...not hogging the spotlight and not being BORING with no character at all....
Thanks for bringing funny and nice back to us English girls. It's nice to see a woman who's worked her way to success, rather over Cat (DC) who is just a snotty bully.
You are right off the bat, my favorite. A few reasons:
Love the relationship you and your husband have, it seems very real and grounded and you seem genuinely like friends. You are stunning,take good care of yourself but don't look plastic or phony, you look like you are well taken care of You have a lot of self respect and don't grovel for anyone....so me. You seem like a true friend but your family comes first, gotta respect that. You have exquisite taste as evidenced in your dress and your home. You are proper and have high morals, a big one for me. You are a true lady but have a fun off the cuff sense of humor!
I have to say if it wasnt' for you, this show might not interest me so much, Camille is hard to watch. I feel horrible for Taylor who seems to be in a loveless business/marriage. The two sisters are sweet but don't jump off the page in any way. Adrienne seems like a true person but her plastic appearance unfortunately leads you to think otherwise. You are fabulous...keep up the fabulosity!
Pretty, classy, successful, great hubby - you are the best! NOTHING like that nasty brit on RHW - DC! They could all learna thing or 2 from you! Oh yea - and hilarious! I cant wait to go to your restaurant -the next time I am in LA!
I LOVE MY LISA....You show such class and I love your personality and your witty & funny and have a wonderful sense of ! Your on point w/ every comment your make...This is the BEST SHOW that Bravo has done by far...You guys should have been the first housewives....I lOVE YOU & the show!!!!
Lisa, I just want to say that you are my favorite RHOBH! I like your husband and dog as well!! You can tell your hubby that we also have a dog named Lolli!! As far as Taylor's husband....I honestly think he's gay. Maybe he doesn't even know it. He should just come out of the closet and release Taylor so she's free to enjoy her life.
You are my absolute favorite housewife EVER! What a great sense of humor you have and you seem to want so much to keep everyone happy. Nice to see someone like you on the show. I've grown somewhat weary of all the drama on Housewives, lately.
You Rock!!! Watched you last night with Andy Cohen and you are hilarious!! Don't subject Jiggy to tacky costumes ever again!! ; p Poor child. Love that little guy...so adorable. I voted for your husband too! You both seem to have a genuine love for one another......
Lisa, You are my FAVORITE!!! Your comments have me laughing out loud every episode so far. PLEASe keep them coming, do NOT filter based on some of these comments. When you were talking about Taylor's husband, I was with you all the way!!! Maybe if he didn't have the personality of a dustmite I would feel a tinge bad for him, but when you had to say excuse me and laugh to the side...I was laughing so hard. Keep 'em coming and stay pink and classy!! Love, love, love you!!!
Lisa I really like you as a person, true, honest and sincere and not a spoiled BH woman. You appear to be the mediator for all the women and I hope your friendship with them will last because they will see you of who you are. Your husband is great too!!!
Dear Lisa, You and your husband are a class act. I have to say your charming husband is a very attractive man. The two of you looked great on the dance floor. Camille was dancing like a stripper not very classy if you ask me. You and Ken had some very nice moves. I thought the two of you were by far the best dancers of what was showed . Very sweet.
I just wanted to say that you are my favorite housewife of all time! Your hilarious and very classy, hope to see you in upcoming seasons.
Love you...your wit keeps me laughing with your snarky comments! Loved you and Jiggy on Andy's show, but I was annoyed that Andy make you dress up Jiggy and at Nate's question about your money. That was tacky!
