Well at least we started on a high note with my excellent example of "European driving" that almost resulted in me being honked off the road. But never mind that, for the record my husband (whom I love dearly) happens to be one of the worst drivers I know. He charges at everything like we are fighting a battle. Men!
Now talking of battles that is the perfect segue into Camille's dinner party. Oh dear, what a cesspit of emotions I witnessed there: jealousy, anger, sarcasm, and vitriol. It was hard to watch, and something I didn't particularly want to be part of. I could not believe how quickly things spiraled downwards, and that again we were in the middle of World War III. I certainly hoped, foolishly, that this was a dinner that would help heal the rift that had commenced in New York. But Kyle and Camille, Taylor and Kim, aaagh ... it was a nightmare!
Lisa, you are so amazing. You should really do a style book about your home, gardens and your personal style. All of the flowers are so beautiful and you can tell that your husband truly adores you!
Lisa you are one of my favorite housewives. I feel you are honest and fair. You call it like you see it. I love your dog.
Hi Lisa, I can feel your contempt from reading this blog. Camille's 'sidekick' and her nasty behavior is beyond reproach! Can we say creepy? I was insulted for Kyle at their below the belt comments. It was totally uncalled. What did Mauricio have to do with this row? I think this is for Camille. Her true colors that were shining through and now front and center and let's just say they are an atrocious mess.
P.S. Love your super sexy moment with the Gigolo! Love Dee
I do enjoy watching you!! You seem to have a realistic perspective on things. The medium (but largely crazy) seemed like a set up to me. Did she give Camille a heads up on Kelsey's behavior in NYC probably at that same moment??? I wonder?
Couldn't have said it better myself! You are far and above my favorite Housewife of all time, and a true breath of fresh air: fun, fabulous and carefree. You bring light to a show that could go dark very quickly, and constantly keep me entertained without bringing the drama. I have a fantastic mother, but if I ever needed a back-up I would definitely pick you!
I coudn't agree with your blog more!! The comments made after you all left were some of the most vindictive and cruel things I have ever heard- and they could not have been more wrong!! After watching Camille at dinner and watching her interviews, it is clear to me she wanted to stir up more drama and loved evry minute of it. How classless and catty of her! I feel HORRIBLE for Kyle and that she had to watch those women talk about Mauricio in such a cruel, hurtful way. Camille just showed her true colors tonight, and I am NOT a fan!
Thank goodness for you and Adrienne tonight- what level-headed women you are and knew to get everyone out of there and fast. I agree that Allison had one too many drinks, but that does not excuse her poor, pathetic behavoir. She should be ashamed of herself and I believe she owes everyone at that dinner a HUGE APOLOGY!!!
I adore you, Kyle, and Kim (And Adrienne and Taylor most of the time) and think you three are my favorite housewives out of all the series and seasons, EVER!! You always manage to make me laugh, and I find myself clammoring for more and more of you and your witty comments each week!! Thank you for letting us into your life- you really do make the show worth watching!!
Lisa, your class is such a bright spot of the show. I know Bravo likes the drama that Camille brings but honestly, the lives we get to see of you, Adrienne, Kyle and Taylor are beautiful to watch without all the ugly moments brought when Camille is entered into an episode.
You would draw the same ratings because honestly, none of the other housewife shows have the class and character of you four. It is a pleasure to watch you with your husbands and your interactions with each of those ladies.
As for the episode tonight, all I can say is Wow, just wow. I bet it curled Giggy's mane.
I know you remembered her name, but I find it HILARIOUS that you refer to her as "that woman!" You are an example for all women out there, I admire you so much.
I am so glad you are such a good loyal friend to Kyle. There are some situations where one person is clearly wrong and I'm glad you stand by your friends.
Lisa, I so love everything about you...such a pretty lady you are. I agree with you, it was sad, what went down. Camille and her employee's... oh, excuse me, her friends, were vile and I was shocked.
Lisa, you are my favorite hw on BH. You are also the most classiest. I do admire the friend you were to Kyle at the dinner. You are truly a good person. And you are so right about everything you said in your blog. BRAVO!
Lisa you have become my favorite housewive out of all the shows- I love seeing you and your family and the passion you have for them and your friends. I was shocked about what happened- I cant believe that women actually got a show... she was so bizarre and what was with smoking the fake cig?? Dont change-your awesome! LOVE your doggies, love your family, love your class, love love love!!!
You are simply marvelous! Please continue being the elegant and woman of grace that this show desperately needs!
As usual Lisa.. you were a lady (and so was Adreinne). It did seem as if the "psychic" and Camille just wanted to stir up trouble. I did however almost fall out of my chair w/ my sweet little Gucci (another Gigster fan) when the psychic pretty much told Kyle her "reading" and it seemed to be exactly what Camille was going thru now... NOT that it is funny or I would ever wish that on anyone, especially w/ children. But, it does have a bit of irony to it. God bless and much love from Ks to you and the Gigster in BH. (and the other furbabies)
Please advise your good friend to be nice to her sister. It is sad that you were all giggling about Kim calling (because she was being punished for having a fight since Kyle is the only one who can have a fight apparently) - you all claim to be upset when the other girls talk about Kyle but you all are giggling about Kim. Mean.
Lisa you are an old world Lady in every sense of the word. I am so proud of how you maintain your dignity.
Good insight into this episode Lisa - I really enjoy reading your blogs.
Yes, you're right - I do believe that all of the women did not display the best behavior during the dinner - especially the side kick, oh, I mean psychic! But the conversation after the dinner was so disgusting and completely out of line.
I'm hoping that both the psychic and Camille have watched this episode and are ashamed of their behavior - and I hope they both are eating some serious humble pie considering the state of Camille's marriage after they spoke so horribly about Kyle's.
Yes...I'm hoping, but I doubt it.
It's interesting while I was reading through your blog, I was reading it with an english accent, I love it! You are by far my favorite! I love the way you dress, and to me your the most gorgeous one out of the show. I love your sassiness, at the dinner when you said "is my grandmother here?" lol Very nice! Of course watching the dinner on tv was painful, I can't imagine being there, too akward. I wish more people would stick up for Kyle, she seems like a beutiful person inside and out. No body got her back. All i can say is karma is a ..... look at Kyle's happy blessed life, and Camille's falling into to pieces.I think Camille might be jeleous....
Everything would have went smoothly is Camille's Friend Ghost busters would have stayed in the grave with her friends and leave living people alone. She obviously never spend anytime with real people. I think she was possesed by a deamon.
"off the clock and clearly on the cocktails!" Your wit is awesome! She clearly was checked into them wasn't she?
Lisa,something about you is absolutely beautiful. I think it is the fact that you have tons of self confidence, you have everything you need and you seem to be happy. Keep it up and teach a few life lessons to Camille because she urgently needs them and recommend she goes to deep therapy and learns to love herself.
Lisa, you are the best. You keep the show classy. You have a great family and are down to earth. You are beautiful and do not look phoney. A natural beauty and that is rare to see on TV. I think you are a good role model.
I love how honest and real you are.. You're my absolute favorite. You took the words right out of my mouth!
You are spot on, Lisa! Glad to see you defending your friend & her husband & calling that psycho psychic out on her BS! She clearly has more issues than even Camille does! And that says a LOT!
Taylor, I have to say this...you are a gracious LADY...can't say that about several of the others, exception being Adrienne...you two are what I have always imagined real ladies to be...my mother was a lady..that trait is hard to come by and probably is innate...I do love the way both of you have tried to be fair and impartial, two traits that Camille most certainly lacks...of the two, Kyle seems to be the more likeable...although I do believe that there is more to Camille than meets the eye...perhaps as the show plays out we shall see...the divorce will very likely introduce Camille to reality and I am very sympathetic to her in that respect....what a cad Kelsey turned out to be and I was such a FAN!! Oh yes, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your sweet husband!!!!
Your are so right! I was just beside myself watching this episode. I thought it was mean, vindictive and for crying out loud! These women need to grow up and get over it. It more for Camille! And the Psychic is her friend. That a joke. Oh Kim... just annoys me... Poor insecure woman lives in La, la land! And as for you, I like you. Very classy & down to earth.
You are the BEST! Best wishes to your entire family and I love to watch you every Thursday you are so gracefull and beautiful! Thats realy all I can comment on I love to watch you every week you are my favorite housewife..... I love them all with again exception of Camille but you are awesome and my family loves you and O what a great sense of humor! I have stated in another blog that I think the brain waves were crossed at the dinner table because the MEDIUM? (LUSH) I think was reading Camille and not Kyle because everything she said about Kyle is or has happened to Camiile! But wanted to say that You are wonderful. Happy Holidays to you and your family!
my vocabulary has grown so much by watching this show, particular you! I love the words you use to describe ppl!

You are the best housewives ever! The only normal, classy and cultured housewife in the history of this show. I especially love your British sense of humor! I know you love Kyle, but you have to admit that she is very fiery tempered and if she were little bit more reserve and civilized she would simply ignore that crazy drunk psychic and in general she would never raise her voice over anyone in public and would not use the "f" word.
I was really shocked watching her waxing on TV, in front of her daughter and I guess in the presence of filming crew? Was it so necessary to do? Vulgar, so vulgar!
And one more, even if Kim said or did something wrong to her, she should not treat her sister the way she did. Kyle has to talk to her face to face, but insulting her and humiliating her in front all of you was so wrong. It's her sister, it's family and nothing should be closer. She treats Kim like nobody, it's so sad to watch. I felt horrible seeing Kim all by herself in the car.
It was painful to see you sitting there, every inch a lovely lady, while the madness swirled around you. How sad that women like Camille and her friends truly have no idea what it is to be a lady. Having said that, however, please stay away from them, so we never have to watch them again!!
I truly think that all of you all are giving camille way too big of a free pass. It was not the pyschics party it was camille's. I realy like you but making excuses for camille is annoying.
Lisa, by far you and Adreienne are the only two with any sense on this show. I apologize on behalf of American women who are not catty children.
LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU! BEAUTIFUL & STYLISH! With A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR... You've got the whole PACKAGE! Can me and my Husband be your house boy's! We cook, We clean, Will drive you around...LOL
You and Adrienne were the only CLASSY women at the dinner party..or..should I say 'kid fest' since the others were acting like spoiled..immature children with NO respect for themselves or anyone else...
Much respect to you for taking the 'high road' and staying out of the 'mess'..
I think the others should be totally embarassed after seeing how they behaved..life is too short for such BS is what I think...
And of course..was FAB to see Giggy in this week's episode..little 'tease' that he was not giving you a 'snog'..hahaha..
Stay well and happy Lovely Lisa...x
Love love love you! Lisa you're the voice of reason and sanity and all done with a smile and plenty of class! How any of you deal with Camille is beyond me - regardless of what was happening in her personal life, it does not excuse such behavior. And that "psychic"...perfect comment..."whatever you name is, go have another drink!" Perfect summation. (And even though I am completely jealous of your shoes, they are just soooo you! Rock 'em!)
Really Lisa, Haven't you had enough of this drama from these sometimes crazy and always obnoxious women? Especially, this on going, all the time, duo feuding Camille and Kyle?
There is nothing else to say except you are absolutely fabulous and intelligent. A true "alpha female" ;-)
I really do wish you would've told that woman off but I understand you're a classy lady. Personally I would've thrown my drink in her face. I'm just sayin.. I wonder if you're still friends with Camille? Totally obvious she set that whole thing up. More Giggy!!
