Oh Paul

Adrienne's answers your burning questions about Paul's pool outfit and her bbq.

Oh, Paul.

I suppose I could start and end this blog with that, and I have a feeling all of you would understand. Say it with me -- in half laughter, half did-he-really-just-do-that? Oh, Paul. Right.

In his defense, Paul does have a point. Jackpot does love to spend some "private time" in Paul's closet, and he usually leaves a present of the odorous variety behind. But it's not like I trained Jackpot to do that. I definitely never said “Jackpot, not in Mommy’s closet. Go in Daddy's!" It's more like I just haven't been able to spend a lot of time teaching Jackpot not to do that. I know, I know. I have to discipline him more (Jackpot, not Paul. Then again. . .). Any tips to help me out with him (Jackpot or Paul, take your pick) would be much appreciated. Bear in mind that there are three things you can count on -- death, taxes, and that Jackpot is going to have a mind of his own. The problem is that I'm a little amused by it. He's just so cute, you know? (Jackpot, not Paul. Fine, fine. Paul, too.)

OK, onto the rest. This episode was filled with moments that had me shaking my head and laughing in disbelief when I looked back on it. I have a feeling I know what you all want to ask, so let me just take a second to answer the vital, pressing and life-altering questions that are on your mind.

1) We do actually have steps that lead into and out of our pool. Shocker, I know. I have, in fact, seen Paul use them before. However, for some strange reason every time we get near a pool on this show, he feels the need to demonstrate jumping into a pool while wearing anything other than appropriate pool attire.

2) He does actually own appropriate pool attire.

3) Paul is apparently an exhibitionist.

4) What you didn't see was that earlier that evening was Paul teasing me that I should follow Kyle’s lead and learn how to cook for my husband. What you saw was me suggesting that he take Mauricio’s lead and figure out how to get a six-pack for his wife.

5) Boys will be boys, and I’m glad that Brandi's son decided to christen the hedges as opposed to the pool in his dire moment of need. As a mom of three boys, you learn to appreciate the lesser of all evils, so to speak.

6) Bernie is still miffed that Giggy had been drinking out of the wine glasses at a dinner he took a lot of pains to prepare, but he shouldn't have said what he said. In all truth, I don't really tolerate anyone in my household being snarky, and I should have stepped in. That being said, Bernie makes really amazing red velvet cupcakes. You do the math.

7) I don't own $25,000 sunglasses. I have three little boys who think that everything can be tossed through the basketball hoop. So if you do the math again, it's rather obvious they would turn those sunglasses into $25,000 worth of dust pretty quickly.

8) I tend to use the anatomically correct word when describing body parts.

9) I did buy Jackpot many chew toys, including furry ones, so that he would stop using Visco's tail for his own amusement. He isn’t biting. Literally. Instead, he continues to pounce on his brother’s rear pastern, hock, and tail. (See what I did there? Anatomical words.)

10) I don't have gravel on my driveway. Kyle is absolutely right, it ruins your shoes. And anything that ruins my stilettos is a no-no around my house -- except for Jackpot. He chews on my shoes and he can stay. (For the record, buying your dog furry toys shaped like shoes that have labels on them such as "Jimmy Chew" and "Manolo Barknik" does not actually discourage your dog from chewing on the real thing. Just in case you were wondering.)

Glad it was a lighter episode this week. I think we all needed it. Hope you laughed a little as well.

Now if you'll excuse me, I see Jackpot heading for Paul's closet again, and I think I might just be able to interrupt his gift-giving activities. We are working with a trainer now, and apparently I’m supposed to catch him before he goes.

Wish me luck!

Love you all!

XOXO,

Lisa R.: Kyle Didn't Create This Drama

Lisa R. thinks there are two ladies who aren't taking responsibility for their actions.

I have to start the week off by giving a shout out to all of you. During last week’s episode and throughout the week, your tweets have been pouring in, and you guys really make me laugh. Yes, as a matter of fact I DID want to dive-roll head first out of that car ride with Kim onto the freeway and run. Run Forrest, run! All of your support and understanding means everything!

So, we pick up right where we left off, but before we do, I’d like to note that Kyle wasn’t the one to create any of this drama. It was Kim that chose to walk back in the house after Brandi had escorted her outside and told her NOT to go back in. There was a lot of alcohol and God knows what other drugs influencing a lot of the behaviors, so no matter what, the outcome wasn’t going to be a good one. Like a Dr. Phil quote I used on Twitter last week, “When you choose the behavior, you choose the consequence.” While I have compassion and empathy for these women and what I see playing out in front of me, there seems to be a lot of blame that both Kim and Brandi are trying to place on Kyle, and in my opinion they aren’t accepting the consequences from their behavior.

Now that some time has passed and I have really had some time to digest the situation, I myself have some questions just like all of you. Why did Kim go to Eileen’s poker night if she was sick with pneumonia and bronchitis? I don’t doubt that major illnesses like these made her feel terrible. So, then why go in the first place and then exacerbate these illnesses by smoking cigars all evening? I’m quite certain that had I been as ill as she was, I would have been in my bed pickling myself in oil of oregano and overdosing on vitamin C and echinacea. But again, as I didn’t know where she was in her sobriety, I also didn’t know where she was in her illnesses.

To me, there seems to be a lot of pain being masked by alcohol.

Lisa Rinna

As far as Brandi goes, my comments are coming from a place of experience and concern. I’ve been, like I know many many of you have also, a part of lives that have been affected by addiction. And to echo Yolanda’s sentiments, I have a hard time wrapping my brain around the idea of grown women, mothers in particular,
behaving this way. To me, there seems to be a lot of pain being masked by alcohol. Granted, I don’t know what goes on in Brandi’s life outside of this. I only know what I observe in this environment.

I’m just so happy that the darn Stella & Dot party was successful. Hallelujah! Holly Robinson Peete had done a similar party that had an amazing turnout, and I was beyond thrilled to host my own. The Noreen Fraser Foundation’s mission, "to find a way to live with cancer and not die from it" is very close to my heart. Both my mother and sister are recent breast cancer survivors with double masectomies, so it was very important to me that the party be a successful one. It meant so much to me that everyone, with the exception of Kim being in the hospital, showed up despite what had recently gone down. By the grace of God, everyone kept their composure, bought a ton of jewelry, and appeared to have a good time. Big thanks to Stella & Dot for helping to raise so much money and to Gourmet 47 and Hourie for catering the amazing food.

Giant kudos to Eileen for speaking her mind with Brandi at my house. She always knows how to remain classy and sophisticated even in the most uncomfortable of situations. I admire her deeply for that.

Lisa V.’s impeccable brood continues to grow as we see her add Pumpy to the family. What a gorgeous and incredibly lucky dog she is to take on the Vanderpump name. If only she truly knew what a lucky bitch she is!

Next week is the Gay Mixer and yes, I finally understand that I shouldn’t come naked. Again, I ask my dear gay friends forgiveness for not understanding what Kyle meant. Sometimes it just takes me a minute to catch these innuendos. Oy. Be sure to keep your seatbelts safely fastened as we are still experiencing turbulence!

Until next week….

Xo, LR
