Lisa Vanderpump

Lisa knows this wasn't her fight to fight, but still has some opinions on the matter.

on Dec 16, 20100

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, I have neen looking everywhere for your Louboutin's that you wore in one of the first few episodes of this season. They are a black pump with very large rhinestone's on toe and around ankle...at least, I thought they were Louboutin's...

If anyone knows, please post it!!!! :)

Lisa, I love, love, love your sense of humor and yours, Adrianne's, and Kyle's rational minds. But I love your blog on the dinner party from hell. O.M.G. That was insanity at it's finest and you pegged that situation dead on! Oh, and the psychic? I will forever refer to her as the "sidekick". Hysterical! Seriously though, thank God someone has the balls to come out and say what is obvious to the american public. You have restored my faith in the housewives. Personally, I'm sick of watching Camille carry on each week. I watched this train derail, all the time hoping she would come around, show some sort of humility and just admit she was wrong - that she heard Kim wrong. (For the record, I definitely think it was her insecurity that heard that.) At any rate, I realize now - after weeks of frustration - that Camille just can't be wrong. She would rather look stupid than be wrong. And THAT is just sad. At any rate, I will probably see this train wreck to the end but only, and I do mean ONLY because I do love the rest of you girls. Kim is an acquired taste but I have hope for her still at least.

I do agree that Faye did provoke phycho just a bit.....but u cld also argue that she was calling camille out for being such a liar about not telling A everything that happened in NYC. If A is what she claims to be, she wld have known something went down and asked C about it. U can't have it both ways darlin. Did you watch Camille sit back and smile smuggly as everyone was fighting? That made me ill to think their host got so much pleasure from this horror show. I think there is lots of blame to go around. Taylor actually (I hope she is telling the truth that it was not intentional), threw Kim, Kyle, and Lisa all under the bus by telling Camille that they had been talking about her being insecure (Taylor actually said C was feeling insignificant which in my opinion is worse than insecure). Also, C announced to the entire table that Faye had been in playboy after the OJ trial. Then Faye called C & A out for their obvious lie. Should we vote on whose behavior was the worst? Come on, Camille set the whole thing in motion by getting her phycho friend drunk as a skunk, right?

LIsa: I so enjoy your sense of humor! You are very quick witted, and know how to turn a phrase. I laughed out loud (in my office, I admit) - when you wrote about the "fancy dress" party snafu. Hysterical... to ME, because it didn't happen to me... a lesson that it always pays to learn the local parlance. Decades ago, I helped a Brit gentleman make hotel arrangements in San Francisco. He told me he was "surfacing," and I swear I asked him if he was coming by submarine! I was so embarrassed - but he laughed 'til I thought he was going to choke. The man was Peter Sellers. Ah, memories.

Just wanted to tell you that you are amazing! I believe that you and Adrienne are class personified and need to give the other ladies some lessons!! Although, I am unsure that those who need it will accept it graciously. Keep being you! (I enjoy watching!)

I agree, Lisa IS a class act and did not stoop to the level of the other ladies at the party. Her calm manor is just simply class personified.

I realize the "fights" get big ratings but when you see what these ladies are fighting over, especially in these trying times, you really have to wonder about them and what they place importance on. Lisa is there to bring it back to reality and I am glad she's a part of the show. She is a good influence and the other ladies should take note of her example of how a true lady acts!

I appreciate you for your elegance, to stay in a neutral Mediator between Kyle and Camille takes strenght. You and your neighbor are true ladies that is so rare and should be duplicated in this world.

Hi Lisa, Kudos to you for always behaving like a LADY and remaining diplomatic. I don't know if I would have been able to stay out of the melee, but I certainly hope that I possess the intelligence and fortitude to walk out or Camille's house before the argument got to the point it did. To quote the Countess, it's true that "Money Can't Buy You Class". That woman and Camille definitely proved her point! You, however, set an example for all women and have proven that we can be ladylike and classy!

Dear Lisa, You are one of my favorite cast members. I simply love your sense of humor. You look amazing, your house is to die for, I love your accent and the way you deliver a one liner is perfect. My favorite so far," we were just a few clowns short of a circus" Perfection.

Hi Lisa:

I just had a late lunch with my husband at Villa Blanca today and we were both very pleased with the quality of your food and service (Richardson was very attentive.)

The Pappardelle Bolognese was excellent.

Also, it was great seeing you and your husband being so gracious to all the patrons, making them feel at home. Lastly, you are as beautiful on in real life as you are on TV.

Cheers to you.

Dear Lisa,

I have watched all the housewives, from the OC to Atlanta, and you are my favorite! I love your humor, and the way you tell your side of the story is honest and to the point! I did not think I would like the BH housewives and I did not watch until the marathon this weekend and I must say I am glad I did! I look forward to seeing more of you on the show! You even had my husband captivated and getting him to sit on the sofa with me and watch tv with me all day has never been done!

Aloha Lisa,

I absolutely love and adore your accent! You are so beautiful and classy and you don't engage in the drama of the other ladies, although your snide comments here and there are so funny! Have a wonderful Holiday Season!

Lisa, Notice the difference between your dinner party hosted for the housewives, with several extended guests, while the guests chosen by Camille to attend her party and how each is an honest reflection to the type of person each of you are. Kind of makes her a devil and you an angel! Just saying...

Lisa, you are the most beautiful, intelligent and witty of the BH housewives! I love you and your sense of self and style. I LOVE your new pink rhinestone Louboutins that were signed! Good for you for haveing a FAB life!!! Love it that your husband loves you so much and that you have a solid friend like Adrianne. It's refreshing to see that not all Beverly Hills residents are superficial and snarky. You and Adrianne seem to be very genuine people! Good for you both! LOVE the show! I neve rmiss it!

I do think you are a riot to watch, along with several others.. But RUMOR is you are getting Kim fired.. I don't care that Kim drinks and maybe even too much, (I also saw another housewife on the show quite tipsy). Please do not throw Kim under the bus and show a different side of you that not many people will like.. Right now you are funny, witty and very charming, please keep it that way, because with or without you, the show will go on and we will watch.. But if people are forced off due to a housewife thinking she has power, it will ruin another housewife show...

I love lisa, you really tell the othre women how you feel. I think camille is insane. She could learn a lot from you, she is out of this world because she think because she has money, it's make her have class. Like I said she could learn a lot from you.

"Look, I have tried to remain impartial and objective". Lisa I love you but be honest with yourself; you are not impartial to Kyle and Camille's issues. Your comments and facial expressions from the beginning tell it all and Camille has all right to feel the way she does about Kyle and the rest of you; she has been scrutinized by the whole GANG and never given a real chance; if you don't believe me just review the episodes from a non-Bias perspective. Other than that love the show. PS.please stop being mean to Kim and supporting Kyle every time she throws Kim under the bus or puts her down, it's really not cool and not speaking out against it is just as bad or even worse as the the bully's (Kyle) actions. Think you at one point of time would of taught this to your children.

Lisa, you are smart, witty, and beautiful. I love, love watching you on this show. I have to agree with Kyle, Camille is not all there, she is shallow and just someone that likes to play the victim.

Lisa, You are the greatest! Thank goodness Bravo finally brought a housewife with class on board. I think that Camille and Kim are desperate and that is why they are behaving the way they are. They could sure take lessons from you on how to behave!!

Keep on being the classy and intelligent woman that you are Lisa. The show needs you and I love the way that you are able to remain neutral and yet still call a spade a spade based on the bahavior that is being played out. Stick close to Kyle, Camille and her band of mauraders are certainly after her and she needs a close ally. She has NOTHING to be ashamed of in calling it like it is.

When Camille declined to attend Mohammed's party she demonstrated her disinterest in interacting with you ladies in a neutral environment in order to get things back on track after the New York debacle.

Instead she orchestrated the ambush at her home with her alcoholic friend (who she admitted "hits below the belt" when she's drunk) & hired friend where she proceeded to serve industrial style cocktails & lob low brow (& unintentionally self-incriminating) remarks at/of her guests.

While Camille tries to play people she is, sadly, transparent & not bright enough to pull it off.

Glad that you & Adrienne are above the fray.

Wish Kyle could keep frosty but understand she's concerned that Camille would use Kelsey's clout to hurt Mauricio's business. It was gratifying to hear that shortly after filming your party by Mohammed that Mauricio sold the mansion for him.

You are my favorite person on this show! I loved the part with you driving because that is how I drive also (even though I am from NY not England)! You are so funny and you always do the right thing. I aspire to be like you when I am older-- unfortunately without the fab english accent.

I'll have to rewatch the beginning of the show because I missed that. but from what I saw during dinner...it doesn't excuse the other ladies from making attacks too and making snide comments about what Allison does for a living. Like Kyle's remark to Faye about Allison being off the clock and how maybe she wouldn't be once she pulled out her credit card for Allison. Then Faye later started her attacks on Allison. Faye was a guest of a guest I just didn't see it proper for her opening her mouth the way she did making things worse. Yes, Camille shouldn't have said what she said to Faye either but I think the "fault" shouldn't be placed on just Camille and her entourage that everything spiraled out of control. Yes, they were more misbehaved afterward and perhaps they really couldn't wait to "seek and destroy" but from what I saw during dinner (and i rewatched that scene quite a few times) they weren't the first ones to say something (besides the Playboy comment) to really set things off. The other ladies pushed for the drama.

I would have loved it if you and Adrianne had gotten everyone up and said we are sorry but we all have too much class to do stupid when Camille threw the boulder at Faye. You could have pulled it off with your wit and humor and the three toads wouldn't have even known that they had been toasted.

Love you Lisa, you are the epitome of class you must be surprised to say the least at Camille behavior. I know you’ve known her for a long time, but what a debacle of a night that turned out to be. Camille definitely had it in for Kyle. She invited ‘that woman, the psychic’ knowing that what a lose cannon she was with drink, as she had admitted to Taylor at lunch previously. I am just amazed that she would be a friend of yours. You have a great attitude; you take no prisoners, you are a great mom and you have a terrific husband. I have watched Camille since the beginning of the show and I honestly find her underhand, screaming and slightly deranged. They say you’re friends are a reflection of yourself hers say everything. She’s surrounded herself with these ‘yes’ people and they are all on the payroll. I couldn’t imagine that dinner party happening at your house and you know what’s worse for me, she staged that whole thing, where were her children Lisa, I hope and pray there weren’t home that night.

Lisa you are super fun to watch, very witty and very at ease with yourself and the other girls. With that being said, I'm not sure why you are not sticking up for Kyle. If Kyle and I were as close as you two seem I don't think I could just sit there every time Camille goes in for the kill. I think you would agree Camille has it in for Kyle and the comments that were made after you ladies left were just down right mean. With your intelligent one-liners I am sure you could put Camille in her place in about two seconds.

The first time I saw you, I couldn't help but think "this woman sprang fully formed from the head of Jackie Collins". I so owe you an apology for that. You're one-liners are infinitely more quotable. I so love your wit, your warmth and your good common sense. Anyone one who can claim you as their friend is amply blessed.

Lisa: I can only repeat what other had said: You are terrific!! I look forward to watching you and Giggy ever week. My favorite comment was about the fingers with the DMV guy...It was priceless. I don't want to be mean, but really, now I know why Kelsey dumped Camille...that lady has some serious issues, starting with her friends. My dear, you are one class act and I love, love they way you look and carry yourself. See u Thursday!

I think you are the classiest out of all the ladies on this show. You especially know when to stay out of things that aren't your business. Can this get any worse? I have a feeling it will! As Bette Davis once said in a move, "Hang on folks, it's going to be a bumpy ride."

You're real and say what is on your mind! LOVE your one-liners and expressions. I think my friends and I have said "an old chap with a dodgy ticker" at least 100 times. LOVE YOU!
