Oh it was so difficult in so many ways to sit and watch this finale Watching the downward spiral of Camille’s marriage, seeing her desperately trying to hold on to the threads of what was left, I, as the viewer, felt intrigued as she let us see her innermost thoughts. I don't know if I could have put myself in such a vulnerable position, but that is what makes this type of show so fascinating, and I applaud her honesty.
The finale party was a complete disaster, particularly seeing Kyle's frustration at constantly covering for her sister. There's a lot you the viewer don't know and hasn't been witness to, and I, as a very close friend who has been privy to the emotional turmoil and devastation that has occurred as a result of this type of situation, still am not fully aware of the path that these two sisters have taken.
The one thing I ask of you as you read this is not to judge Kyle too harshly as tempers flew. I am sure things that were said were instantly regretted too late…and those words don't belong to her they belong to the world.
In the weeks that ensued it was very upsetting to see how everybody struggled to put their lives back together, feelings in tatters, feelings that reverberated through the family and friends like myself who hadn't witnessed this devastating altercation, not quite understanding how far this situation had deteriorated to, trying to comprehend that was not an easy task. And when I saw this episode for the first time it cut me to the quick. Tears rolled freely.
Lisa, I agree your server was wrong but your friend "The Important Customer" had no right to call her a Stupid Bi*tch. Wealthy people have this thought that they can be rude, condescending and above all others. You should put your friend in his place period. Unacceptable behavior for both parties and you need to call him out on it. Being a decent person, having class is much more important than money or keeping a customer like that.
Hello there, I just began watching the show about a month ago, I've enjoyed it, it's interesting:) What I wanted to express kindly to you as a viewer and I do also have a tv background so I'm more than just a average viewer. At any rate, your all very lovely on the show and you all handle the invasiveness of the camera's into your private lives very well. Importanty, I wanted to definately come to your defensive in regards to the recent situation with your past 'lodger!' I'm from California and have lived in East Sussex as an adult so I understand British culture very well and that Cedric was very insulting to you and your family. A vile git, a tosser...a loser as we say! A very very ungrateful man as you have opened your heart,home and family to him---very ungrateful! At the end of the day, how I see it, as life is never easy but ya must give it a good go, it's his own personal challenge to succeed in life. He's failing his journey and perhaps oneday he'l figure it out that money is simply a tool in life and not to be put beforehand of a loyal friendship. His loss. It was disturbing to watch his feedback and excuses--- he's horrible really. Will he be successful with that attitude in life, doubt it. At any rate, he certainly owe's you and your family a huge apology. Only time will tell how he will man up to looking after himself as most of us do in life! Arrrrrgh. Don't like him at all really. Best to you and your family. Kind regards, Carolyn:)
If only.......you hadn't told Taylor to say something to Kim the limo mess wouldn't have happen. You should have stayed out of it like Adrienne did.
The way you support Kyle, I think you have blinders on just like you had blinders on with Cedrick.
I will say one positive thing. You have a great husband. I hope you appreciate him.
Lisa, I have a problem with the way you cut down people and wonder why you feel that's necessary. Seems very strange you carry that dog around with you like he's an accessory. You were my favorite housewive until a few episodes in where you showed your mean spirit. Hope you and Ken review the show and if you decide to return, keep it real next time.
Lisa, I realize that just because I get a kick out of the show, and watch every episode multiple times doesn't mean I KNOW any of you BUT I think you are just awesome! Love your cheeky sense of humor! I was suspicious of Cedric (having had a similar experience of my own). He is a disturbed young man and frankly, anyone who listens to his ridiculous story isn't worth your time. Love your relationship with your husband!!
It was very rude and mean what you said about Russell on the reunion show. Perhaps you did not make a connection on any level because you could not play with Russell and make him the butt of your jokes. You and Kyle are self proclaimed girl's girl. while Russell is a man's man. I gotta love a man that stays out of womens catty drama! I connected with Russell when he interacted lovingly with his daughter. He also supported his wife in doing the show and thus being humiliated by her on national tv. How could you miss that Lisa? Take your own advice and stay out of Kyle, Kim, Camille and Taylor's business. You also were the catalyst in the final exposive fight. Your far from a victim when it comes to Cedric. You did say Cedric could run your restaurant as well as you.
Thank God for you this season. I mean really. You are sultry, sexy, and funny, and yet the epitome of a lady. You, Adrianne, and Taylor were the best parts of the show, and Ken. Let's dump the others and try to find someone real ladies! You have the best wit about you. It was a pleasant change from all the bickering. Can't we all just get along people? Who want's to see that on TV anyway? I know Kyle is your friend, but she really must get a handle on her temper and mouth on TV!
Lisa you and your husband and family were so kind and generous to Cedric and he turned out to be nothing but a con-artist! He needs to be deported! Take care and stay fabulous and don't let this awful loser, low-life turn your heart. xoxoxo
Lisa, I truly believe that, "what goes around, comes around." Meaning, that if you're mean to others, it will come back to haunt you. Camille was catty and mean, and see what happened to her (Kelsey leaving). Cedric using you, and now he's out. I think Taylor will "reap what she sews," in the long run. That being said, I think you have a kind heart, and try to help others. You're a true and loyal friend to Kyle. (She was my favorite, until I saw how she was treating Kim.) I think you'd be loyal to your friends and stand by them, whether they're right or wrong - that's a true friend. I saw where you were trying to make peace. And, I don't think it was your intention for Taylor to jump on Kim at the party. Taylor was responsible for her actions. She could have chosen to meet with Kim, privately, at another time and place. Love your sense of humor.
Hi Lisa, After watching the reunion, I found myself wanting to know the answer to one question. Who told Camille that the ladies were looking at the "movie" that Camille made when she was younger, in the limo after the "dinner from hell"? Someone was causing more trouble trying to be a friend to Camille, but betraying everyone else. Some things do not need to be repeated. Just wondering who let the cat out of the blackberry.
I wish I knew what is up with your friendship with Kyle? You are constantly excusing her behavior, which (as the camera's following her around showed us) has not always been very nice. Then on the reunion you felt the need to speak out for her defense. Frankly, she has been a bully to her sister and not very lady like on several occasions. Please stop acting like a rescuer, Lisa. Kyle is a strong, capable woman and doesn't need you to fight her battles.
BRAVO please post!
Lisa, all I have to say is I think you are the classiest woman out there! You are kind, sexy, flattering, compasionate....whether you and Ken have sex 3 times a year or 3 times a day...I honestly think you guys are the ROLE MODELS of CALIFORNIA! I watch you because I love you! As for Cedric the clown...try to put your maternal feelings aside (I'm a mom too) and realize he has taken advantage of you & Ken! Live your life & enjoy! You worked hard in a society that hardly has work for most......CHEERS!
Sometimes I have doubts about my opinions being based on good observation, but your opinion has resonated with me. I have felt that Lisa instigated alot of the conflict in the show. She covers her intentions really well by being oh so funny and British. She should stay out of the sister's lives and her comment to us the viewers that we don't know what is going on behind the scenes is correct. We only know what we see and what we saw was her interfering and being a party to bullying. How could she, Kyle and Taylor sit there and scream loudly with their "sly looks" and totally humiliate another person such as Kim is beyond me. Definitely not classy, gals.
Lisa, I hope you read your comments so you can see how many of us admire you and like you. You are a classy and generous lady with a wonderful sense of humor. I'm sorry you were hurt and taken advantage of by Cedric. You didn't deserve what he did to you and you shouldn't be faulted for trying to help him out. I hope you aren't being to hard on yourself for being so kind to him as it's better to err on the side of goodness than to have turned your back on him in the first place. I hope you know YOU DID NOTHING WRONG. Take care and I hope to get to see more of your wit in future seasons.
I believe you try to be fair, but in order to do so try speaking to both sides. I believe if you really talked with Kim, maybe you would be a greater benefit to the sister's relationship. You can not possibly judge a relationship based on one side of the story ( you can only believe 50% of what you see and none of what you hear).
You appear to be a caring person, I wish you could work on being fair.
I know this is a silly request but here it goes anyways. Everyone that is following Lisa and the housewives, when the trash papers [National Enquirer etc] comes out with Cedric's so called side, DO NOT BUY THEM THAT publishing. I know curiosity is so much part of life now days, but if everyone just goes one publish and not put any money out then Cedric will have nothing to be paid to lie about and can then crawl under the rock Lisa found him under for good.
Lisa..Love, Love, Love you.....you crack me up..you are a classy, sophisticated, beautiful person that was taken advantage of. Please don't beat yourself up....you and your adorable husband are wonderful people that tried to help a person down on his luck/life. He got to comfortable and didn't respect all that you both did for him. Smile everytime you look in the mirror...there is nothing you should be upset with! I am from NY and the next time I am in Beverly Hills I will be dining at Villa Blanca..can't wait...many kisses from a fan...Nancy
Lisa, Out of all the Real Housewives shows, including Carolyn on New Jersey, I think you are the BEST. So very classy, so very smooth and charming and that accent just makes me want to be AMONG the rich, having lunch enjoying the sunshine...you and your husband, and of course "Jiggy" are great entertainment, especially after a hard day's work!!! Stay stay on the Real Housewives, I will continue to watch!
You are so very charming, smooth and that accent is the best! You just make me want to be rich and sitting in a cafe having lunch. You added the class to the show. I cannot stand Camille and that Taylor is the real BAD one! She tries to come off innocent but after watching her, she is really the one who causes trouble. Lisa, you, your husband and of course "Jiggy" are the best! That houseguest Cedric, good eye candy but YUCK! Ignore him, he wants his 15 minutes of fame...but his personality is PHONY! Lisa, stay on the show...its good entertainment especially after a hard day at work!
Lisa I love you and I dont even know you but you seem like the type of friend we all need loyal, honest and a straight shooter the type of friend that wont just tell you what you want to hear. You wear rich well I only know what Ive seen on TV and I know your ex house guest was lying there is no way I watched you for the whole season and didnt pick up on any of that. Im just sorry a nice lady like you got played like that from a wessel. Cant wait for next season and the next time I'm in LA Im coming to Villa Blanca.
Lisa. I thought highly of you unil the reunion. Your support foR kyle was unwaranted. You were leading to ward justification for Kyle behaviour base on the rumore that Kim has a drinking problem. You do not understand ther dinamics or youare playing into Kyle hand. Your lost my respect.
I absolutely adored you all season. You have a wicked sense of humor and a perception and candor which are wonderful to see. However, I was puzzled by your defense of Kyle at the party and especially at the reunion. No matter what Kyle has "been through" with Kim, she should never, ever have outed Kim's alcoholism in front of 4.2 million people. And you should not have pressed Kim to admit to being an addict during the reunion. I have come to expect Kyle to be cold and matryed when it comes to Kim, but you really surprised me when you backed her up and then took it a step further by pressing Kim. Alcholism is a disease and is private; there's shame involved. I did not understand how you could lose your perception when it came to Kim. If Kim comes back (God, for her sake, I hope she doesn't!), please try not to look at her through Kyle's eyes only.
Lisa, You are my type of a woman. You take your beloved pet Giggy , with you wherever you go. And I applaud you. I Have a pom that about 10yrs now, and she is the love of my life. I have been taking her with me everywhere since she was 5 weeks old. She even had her own babysitter. (A friend of mine, who has poms also) I just want you to know I love Giggy and I love you and Ken , too. When I see you on the show with him, I can see how much you love him. Maybe Giggy should have his own show with Mom and Dad?
Lisa, I agree with everyone on here, you are great! As you said in your blog, you know alot more about Kim's problem, and problems she causes because of her alcoholism. Don't judge Kyle too harshly everyone because if you lived with or dealt with an alcoholic before you know what Kyle is going thru, and I think that night just put the icing on the cake for Kyle about Kim, always watching over her, bailing her out of situations, covering for her and on and on. I feel for both of them equally and maybe that it is out in the open now she can get help,IF SHE EXCEPTS IT, and than thats another problem. Good luck to them all and Lisa you are classy.
I really wish you would have called out Taylor on the reunion show as you did so many times throughout the season.
I am curious why the sudden shift of opinion? You really had some strong opinions about Taylor during the season and you absolutely hit the mark with her.....perhaps you are keeping quiet in an effort to maintain your friendship with Kyle?
Strange indeed! Only time will tell, no?
I wish you all the best. I really enjoyed the season and you were a favorite for sure.
To thine own self be true.
I sensed that the story Cedris tols Kyle was fabricated. I am sorry that he took advantage of your good nature. Do not let this stop you from being the loving person that you are. You have a good heart and you are rare. Any story he make up about you and your family will be dismissed considering the source from which it came a known con artist. Breathe easy, be well, it happened it is over move on.
Hi Lisa! I love you and your husband and your family is beautiful!
I'm so glad you are on to Taylor as the trouble-starter.
Taylor told Camille that ALL OF THE WOMEN were talking about her behind her back at the airport, not just Kim. Camille wrote that in her blog. Also in an interview, Camille said that Taylor told her LISA was the one on the plane really telling Taylor how insecure Camille was.
She's very good at ruining friendships. She even had the gaul to try to come between sisters!
Someone else here had a very good point. Who told Camille about the ladies looking at pictures in the limo? Hmmm. Taylor?
Please don't let her ruin your friendship with Kyle. She's trouble.
Lisa, I have high regard for you. I think with Cedric gone you can focus even more attention and time on Ken. He is a wonderful man and that comes across clearly on camera. Your relationship is one-in-a-million in today's twisted world, so cherish it. Nowadays, partners throw each other away over the latest flavor all the time. The icing on the cake is the financial security. It's nice to recognize that is not the governing factor in your relationship, but the icing. Taylor needs to work on prioritizing love first not money, but I think Russell has the short end of the stick currently.
I know you are Kyle's friend and your loyalty is obvious. Please don't indirectly attack Kim too by justifying Kyle's behavior. It's best to keep silent. You aren't hearing both sides of a deeply painful story that I'm sure goes back to childhood. Yes, they were both child actors but Kyle was on the level of Gary Coleman while Kim was the icon of all icons in her day - look how being a child actor impacted Gary in his adult years? Now, magnify that image times twenty and we are talking about Kim's experience with Hollywood. As a child and teen, she was treated like a goddess that could part seas then that faded to normalcy. It's hard enough to grow up, let alone that enormous change taking place too.
Everyone made money off her but was she (and her money) protected really? Typically, stage parents feel entitled to the salary and Hollywood history gives us case after case to prove that mindset. Did the family establish a higher level of living because of her success? Did anyone think of establishing a trust for her that would release funds over a long time period to assure her financial security far into adulthood. Even if she blew money as a young woman (who hasn't), was she honored in return for her contributions? Somehow, I don't think so.
How about dating? How many guys went out with her for her or her actress status? How many of these men married her for the same reason? Were they in love with her or the image? Do you ever have that concern for your own children? Money and fame attract disingenuous people. Cedric is an excellent example of that statement being true.
Kim who parted seas as a child is the only one that lives outside of the community as an adult. Do you think she holds onto a feeling of failure? Especially if she turned to love, marriage and Motherhood to replace the lights of Hollywood and except for the children those notions vanished too. Alcohol and drugs make you forget yourself. Many people from all walks of life turn to alcohol and drugs to forget their brokenness. It's sad, but I promise Kim just didn't wake up one day and say, "I think I'm going to throw my life away starting today," it just doesn't work that way.
Kyle needs anger management. There is no justification for her behavior, so please don't enable her conduct by stating that there are reasons for her being an emotional and physical bully to her broken sister. Obviously, you have stayed on the good side of Kyle because it appears she doesn't put down the dagger EVER if you get on her bad side. My last observation is Taylor is no one's friend, and the most troubling cast member of all.
To end on a good note, Giggy is a doll - thank you for saving him. I've rescued two dogs that I was encouraged to put down. I just had to let one go 8 years later to cancer but he was the love of my life. The other was found in a shoe box being kept like a frog. We just celebrated her 9th birthday and she is a whooping 3 lbs of love. For all the time I've given to their care, I was rewarded tenfold. Peace be with you and your family, D.
I'm sure there will be a next season and you will be there for us to enjoy. I don't see what you do in Kyle but then again we don't see much. I wish she could get some help with her anger and listen more than push so hard to be right. Her tears are lost on me. I loved the look on your face when Adrienne said she wasn't Kennedy's Godmother! Another confirmation that she is a phony! I hope Taylor is replace with another real housewife. I don't think that you had a part in the Taylor Bday party fiasco. Taylor should have told you Kim and she had already spoken. Taylor was on the defensive and I think was trying to impress you and Kyle. Kim is right she is a Chameleon, changing with whom ever she is with. I do feel badly that Kyle got sucked in and now is taking the heat for it along with the damage done to her relationship with Kim. Take care and looking forward to next season.
What a Regal and Distinguished Gentleman. Ken, I applaud you for allowing your wife to have a live in friend and opening your family, home and hearts to such an unappreciative rude guest (Cedric). You showed such an honorable composure and elegant refinement in guiding your family and wife through this horrific debacle. I applaud you in being so patient, caring and understanding with such deplorable behavior and effrontery, but mostly in supporting your loving wife. You Sir are a true Gentlemen.
Lisa, you are funny, BUT....your jokes are often quite mean. For you to say that your snide remarks are never hurtful and catty is so off. I know that if I was your friend, I would probably end up crying from time to time if I was the butt of your "jokes".
That being said, it was very nice of you to take care of Cedric and I'm sorry to see that it ended so badly. I was hoping that the argument was only in the heat of the moment but watching his interview - I guess it wasn't..... Please don't stop giving though...it's very kind!
I agree completely! Let's support one of our fan favorites, Lisa, and her dear husband. If we all turn our backs on the ultimate backstabbing so-called friend, Cedric, then he will not win in his efforts to destroy a couple who opened their entire lives to him. Too bad we can't start a petition.
i do not think that lisa will agree going shophing unless you live in beverly hills i am not trying to put you down but remember when adrienne invited them to go to vegas vip (very important person ) she said that you dont refuse that kind of invitation well i guess thats the norm in beverly hill dont think i am making fun of you , you sound like a very down to earth normal person cio
Let me first say that I think you are a amazingly strong, caring individual and Cedric was using you and your husband from day one. I also thank each and everyone of you (the housewives) for allowing us (the viewers) to come into your private lives and be a part of it. That one scene when Cedric was trying to tell Kyle about his childhood, I knew he was making it up to stay in your good grace. I also understand your feelings in regards of the Kim and Kyle situation. I knew that there was so much more going on between them then what was aired on television. I have a sister and brother that because of my strong personality the responsibility of helping them was kind of push on me as it was push on Kyle. I don't think it has nothing to do with Kyle not caring and loving her sister, but has everything to do with the fact that they do have another sister who appeared not to be there for either of them. Also as much as Kyle my want to be there for her sister Kim, things will not get better until Kim admits to herself that she does have a problem and needs help. I know from my own personal experience with one of my sister's who I can proudly say is free from her self destroying addiction that caused our family many problems. I pray that Kim look within her self and ask God for help and admit that she does have a problem so the healing process can begin. In regards to the other women I admired their strengths as they too went throught tuff times. I believe that Camille was so caught up with her own problems that it made her keep her guard up and only heard what she thought she heard. I think Kim should have spoke up for her sister and things might have been a little different between Camille and Kyle. My heart goes out to Camille because I know going through a divorce can be very difficult based on my own experience. I only wish my ex-husband had something that I could have gotten from him.(smiling) But I raised my two children alone and I am very proud of both of them. I know I was blessed to have them and thank God for them every day.I think Taylor needs to be truthful with herself and let her husband know that she has been unhappy for a long time. And he needs to try and work things out for the better, or she needs to get out. Why stay with someone that does not act like they love you. Adrianne and her husband was fun to watch they just showed the side of couples that speak their minds. But I could also see that they loved each other. Kyle and her husband have a good relationship like you do with Ken. I look forwards to another season with you guys. God bless you and thank you.
Lisa- Thank you for speaking up and defending Kyle. Kim will not admit she has a drinking problem and Kyle suffers from the truth. She is not a bully. She is doing her best to cope with her sisters problem. She has to make "healthy boundaries" for her and Kim. You are truly a class act for speaking out......I soooooooo admire you. You have a glow about you. Ken is a lucky man.
I agree with you as far as the situation between Kyle &Taylor, hopefully she will see who Taylor truly is. As for Kim I think she will never be understood until she accepts the things in her own life. I believe that she needs to admit to her problem and ask God to help her so she can begin to heal on the inside. It can't be easy going through life lying to yourself when deep down you know no one can help you until you help yourself. Kim needs help and her family and friends can continue to support her. And by the way she does have more than one sister? Where was Kathy in all of this. Seems like all the responsibility was forced on the youngest sister. Not cool.
I strongly agree with everything you have to say accept regarding Kyle being mean to Kim. Speaking from my own personal experience with a sister,until Kim admits that she has a problem regardless of what Kyle do or don't do for her, she has to stand up and take responsibility for her own actions. And by the way they do have another sister where was she in all of this? Kyle not only took on Kim responsibility and the family's but her husband helped too. It's not like they are that rich he does have to work for his money. I think Kathy needs to step up and be a better big sister to the both of them.
Love you - but PLEASE stop making not-so-subtle references to what goes on behind the scenes with Kyle and Kim. You don't know. We don't know. All we know is what we see, and frankly it consistently looks like Kim has been ganged up on.
Lisa, you are definitely my favorite cast member on the HWBH. I love your sense of humor and the relationship you and your husband have. Your comments about the other cast members are always honest and show you're really down to earth and able to see through a lot. I know you're good friends with Kyle but can't help but see certain similarities when you defend her and how you would defend and make excuses for Cedric. I see you being very protective of her and hesitant to tell her the real truth about the way she treats her sister Kim. We shouldn't judge since we don't know all the details of their situation. And we don't know how we would react ourselves if put in the same situation. That being said, I believe as Kyle's friend, defending her actions only serves to support the way she's been treating her. I think (not that this is your responsibility) that her friends should advice Kyle to be more patient and less harsh with Kim. Especially if Kim is dealing with substance abuse. My husband developed a severe drug addiction and I can definitely relate to Kyle's frustration. But after getting treatment and us both getting counseling I was better able to understand that more than anything he needed the support of his loved ones. And that, I'm glad to say, was the key to his recovery. Trying to understand Kim and her struggle and the fact that substance abuse is a decease, a self-inflicted decease, but a decease non-the-less. The last thing Kim needs is someone constantly attacking her, that will only make things worse.
Lisa, I'm screaming at the TV. I had a 4lb Pomeranian and the balding body is an affliction well known to the breed and runt of the litter. They lose their hair and the skin is itchy and dry. I used to put soothing aloe gel all over my little BamBam and he was fine...spunky...why would that breeder say to kill Giggy??? My dog also had heart and lung issues..he took meds and was fine!!!!
Lisa darling, im watching the lost scenes right now...and on the subject of you pup, Giggy... and the itching...im writing. ok, my girl Lucy has had terrible problems with allergies, itching, licking, and her weight. her old vet, im sorry to say was an absolute moron, and just took our money & made us feel terrible about her condition... with out really helping. we switched to a new vet, who the put her on these fabulous meds, including a medication called TEMARIL -P. now im no Dr. but i would ask your vet about this and see if it could help your pup.xo Lucy is doing absolutely 100% better, shes lost over 20 lbs since she was put on thyroid meds as well & her skin & itchiness & allergy problems are under control & she is peaceful & spritely again. i think youre fabulous & you love your little man & i wish you both many more years together. xoxox Leeza Diehl- Monterey, Cal.
Lisa - Jiggy is so adorable. I have a Shih Tzu with the same skin problems. I tried everything including Atopica for quite a lomg time. I finally realized it was from the detergent I used to wash his beds. He is allergic to the perfume or the dye. I wonder if Jiggy might be allergic to the dyes you are using in his clothes. I hope you read this and I hope it helps. I know the frustration your are feeling. I battled this for 10 years! Finally my boy is comfortable!
Lisa I think I might have an answer for Giggy
My dog that I love as much as you do Giggy had the same problem and I did extensive research on the internet and found a solution, so if you would like contact me and I will email you or give you mu number so that I can give you instructions on how to help him. PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO PUT HIM DOWN. He will not have to be on meds at all thats what my Vet suggested but I did not want to do that.
Dear Lisa, Don't know if you read these blogs but I hope someone you know does. I had a dog name Roxy who lost a lot of her hair, and had terrible itchiness. I found out quite by accident when I changed dog food the itchiness and hair loss stopped. I checked to see what was different and found the new dog food did not have soy in it. When I fed her food with soy the itchiness came back and her hair started falling out again. My other dog had puppies by Roxy's brother, and they had the same problem, but feeding them a soy free diet fixed it. Try avoiding feeding Giggy anything with soy including people food(many breads, and seasonings contain soy). I have had other people try this and it worked. Pedigree dog food does not contain soy at this time, but always check labels, because I used one brand that did not have soy, but later I notice the itching and hair loss coming back, and sure enough, the company changed formulas and added soy.
Good luck :-) Leslie
Regarding Giggy's Problem,
Lisa; Giggy could have a food allergy. Please look into that possibility if u haven't allready. One of the best vets in Calif. is Dr. Beebe in Sacramento. Saved many pets!!! Thanks! Great show! Michelle
TREATMENT FOR GIGGY!!! Dearest Lisa, the book THE FUNGUS LINK Vol 1 2nd series by Doug A. Kaufmann discusses that removal of every type of grain and corn from the diet (in addition to other specifications) dramatically improves among many things, skin rashes. I found it true for myself. The book was reccomended to me by an alternative medicine/wholistic practitioner. Also, Oprah Winfrey's wholistic vet wrote a book that included advice for inner ear infections in dogs that required a chinese herb. I sucessfully treated my poodle with it when my traditional vet could not clear it up. Perhaps he could evaluate Giggy and give you some alternative treatment. His name is Martin Goldstein and the title of his book is THE NATURE OF ANIMAL HEALING which states that his practice is in New York, and that he does phone consults. It would be super interesting to see if you removed grains and corn from his diet until you could get him to Dr. Goldstein if his itching would begin to calm...Also, have you considered bathing him in Dr. Bonners baby formula and then rubbing him in olive oil? I know how you must feel, much love your way!
Cheers, Sasha's Mom P.S. Bravo, please get this to Lisa as I don't know how to tweet or reach her!
