Making Progress

Adrienne shares her thoughts on the season of struggles, and why she and the 'Wives are better for it.

It feels a bit surreal to me that we've already finished another season!

This last episode felt like a really good note to end on. After all of the drama and heartache that we have experienced this past year, it was wonderful to close on a mostly positive note. At the time of Pandora's wedding most of us were busy with personal and professional projects, so it was nice to get together and see everyone looking so lovely and refreshed. I was in the middle of finalizing the design of my shoe line which was to reach retailers in a few weeks, and I was really ready to just have a good time. Paul and I danced for hours, and at the end I did wish I'd had that car to drive me back home across the street! It was a beautiful evening, and I wish Pandora and Jason all the best as they start their lives together.

Speaking of starting their lives, I'm also hoping for the best for Taylor and her daughter as they move forward. While she was ready to move on from her marriage, Russell's suicide was obviously still a shock to her, and to everyone else. When we got together at Kyle's, I was so glad that she made the effort to come. It's wonderful to have friends when times are good, but it's essential to have them when times are rough. I think the get-together lifted Taylor's spirits somewhat. That was one of our best afternoons as a group, and I'm glad you got to see us at a time when we could celebrate everyone’s accomplishments.

So many of you have written to me and said that you had tears rolling down your face with laughter while watching Paul's colonoscopy segment. Leave it to Paul to make something serious absolutely dramatic and hysterical. Being a doctor, you'd think he'd be practical and clinical about getting the test done, but no -- there he was, asking for someone to hold his hand (amongst other things he wanted me to do that we don't need to discuss again). I was happy to be there in the beginning of the appointment because I wanted to support his choice to get the test. I knew my husband was full of hot air, I just didn't know how much! LOL!

There is a quote by Frederick Douglass that I love. He once said, "If there is no struggle, there is no progress," and I think that sums up this season. We faced our struggles, but everyone now has new things to look forward to, and for that I am grateful.

Speaking of being grateful, I want to thank all of you for your kind comments and for the genuine caring you have shown towards my family and me this past year.

I appreciate all of you so much!

Xoxo,
Adrienne

PS: I know a lot of you are wondering how the Dolce, Jackpot, and Visco are getting along, they are getting along just purrrrrrfect!!

Lisa V.: Everything Is About to Boil Over

Lisa V. thinks she was lucky to miss the plane ride over with the rest of the group. 

Hello and welcome back. Firstly, the dream team charging 'round BH I could've done without. It was fun, but a lot of running, and my mind is useless with clues, so it was challenging. Too funny that Brandi was with Kyle, as they weren't even talking!
Anyway I got on the tour bus, back of somebody's bike, whatever it took...We lost our envelope at the beginning--oh, dear. Anyway, it is good to see all of the women having a laugh--very tiring, though. Our last destination was Villa Blanca--finally a glass of rosè! A trip was decided, so off we trot to Holland.

Remember how Brandi was saying, "Yes, Holland, we can all smoke pot!" Well that changes real quick! Having been raised by strict but liberal parents sounds like an oxymoron. What I mean to say is that manners and respect were essential, but as parents who lived in London through the '60s, pot was not a huge deal. The lighthearted banter later takes a dark side...

So I couldn't leave with the others, as I was working then judging the Hero Dog Awards and was already committed--after seeing the journey, I realized how fortunate I was--so Eileen and I joined a little later. David and Yolanda's event looked fabulous, though. To raise that incredible amount of money for such a good cause, I salute that wholeheartedly.

I really felt for Lisa as she explained her feelings in regard to Harry quitting drinking and the death of his brothers on the way to the event.

Lisa Vanderpump

I really felt for Lisa as she explained her feelings in regard to Harry quitting drinking and the death of his brothers on the way to the event. I feel that is absolutely why she is so concerned.

It was a difficult episode to watch as this subject of Kim's sobriety came to the forefront. I knew from experience and reiterated this to Lisa and Eileen that the possibility of this ending well was non-existent, as I had experienced her aggression in Paris, when I gently probed as to whether she had taken a sleeping pill, as that would explain her bizarre behavior. I still can't quite compute the difference between me asking whether she took a sleep aid, which she interpreted as contesting her sobriety, and her taking a pain pill at the poker night, which apparently had no bearing in breaking her resolve to abstain.
I had visited Amsterdam several times, and as I was visiting my family in London, it worked out perfectly--well the logistics did. The trip? Not so much.
You can see the tension between the group--like a pot simmering, then the lid is put on, and next week everything boils over.


Not too much for me too comment on, oh apart from, yes, the Dolce & Gabbana shirt is actually called " The pussy bow shirt." Go figure.
Until next week, my darlings, brace for the storm. As always...Love, Lisa.
