Lisa Vanderpump

Lisa admits she knew this episode would expose her as the party gal she truly is.

on Dec 13, 20110

Hello. As we invite you all into our ever changing world to witness our journeys and to join us on the rollercoaster ride that seems to get more hazardous each week, this episode was a welcome reprieve . . .

First, I indulged myself in a rare morning off to spend some time with Pandora choosing dresses. I had heard of a designer, Ian Stuart, who ironically came from the same village in London as I did. Pandora had fallen in love with one of his dresses on his website, so off we trotted to see his creations in person. I had been feeling a little guilty about not giving my daughter as much attention as she deserved at this very special moment in her life, a moment that is reserved for mother and daughter and is the segue for her leaving to start her own life with the man she loves. Time was running out as the wedding was rapidly approaching. I needed to set aside my other demands. When I view moments like this, when my daughter asks me if I am going to cry and reveals herself for the first time in a gown, and to have documented amongst all the craziness these incredible vignettes of irreplaceable experiences, locked, not only in my heart, but on film for all the world to see, I couldn't be happier.

Lisa,

You are a smart woman. There is a reason why you initially did not like Taylor. At your tea party, she attacked you first, then when Camille stepped in, she became persona non grata. At that point, perhaps Taylor felt she'd better find an ally in you. That is when it appeared she backed off. Be wary of her - she's a con and a grifter.

I was quite stumped with Kyle not saying anything to Lisa about Taylor knowing that Russell was emailing her. Lisa said it several times to Kyle that Taylor might be innocent in the litigation threats to Camille because in Lisa's case, Taylor had told her she had no idea why Russell was even emailing her. Kyle had many chances to come clean and tell Lisa - Taylor DID know about the emails Russell was sending Lisa and WHY he was sending her those emails. I think if Kyle would have told Lisa this, Lisa take on Taylor would be very different.

Also, I think Paul is the only one who could have gotten the REAL truth out of Taylor and Russell if given the chance. It was very tactical of him not mention that Camille showed them the email Russell had sent to her until AFTER Russell had painted the email to be very respectable and nice and for Paul to call him out and say he read the email and it isn't as nice as you say. I'm pretty sure if it was Paul in the limo with both Russell and Taylor, the truth would have come out in minutes

Stop with the "Maloof hoof". Not nice and it makes you look like the mean girl. Very petty. And when you come back and say "it was a joke", no it isn't, it's mean. You know it, I know it, everybody knows it.

I bet ya'll had so much fun along with a lifetime of memories, I sure do enjoy watching your happy times compared with the drama of some of the others! Best of luck to the dashing new couple!

Lisa--Taylor is another Cedric. Please focus on Giggi instead, he's much cuter and possibly weighs more.

Lisa, you're the best!! Continue to rise above the foolishness and envy. Looks like you and Pandora had a wonderful time. That's all that matters.

OH no Lisa....after tonites show its clear you have latched on to another Cedric, its called Taylor. Be careful. She should be dismissed from this show, its too much, and Kim should be sent to a rehab of some kind how sad she is.

You are still my favorite! On tonight's show i found you to be a voice of reason for a moment (in the background). to help self serving Taylor and poor Russel. (despite the probable abuse) ....If that was the case then Taylor should of bowed out of all of this and sought out true help for the sake of her daughter and daughters father....but she didn't and still defies him. Also, Its Camille who was also out of line. Despite what 'helpless self serving' Taylor devulged about her relationship, crazy camille should of never said all of that on air....thats just wrong in every way. ..to personal and cruel and she has children so she should know how that would hurt. Good for Kelsy for leaving her.!! smart man. You and your husband are just wonderful people to watch. and your daugher is beautiful. love you all. You were soooooo right about taylor all along. She should not be on television. ...needs major treatment. her poor daughter...thats so sad. I wont comment on her blog....whats the point.

Lisa, I agree with a previous poster that yes you do seem a bit bossy. Why can't she leave her damn tea bag in her tea for as long as she wants? Do the English feel everybody has to drink tea the way they like it? Also why did Ken refer to Dana as "the chubby one" when clearly his own daughter has a less than svelte figure? Just plain mean don't you think?

Lisa, I agree with Valleybutterfly and everyone else who posted favorable comments about the amount of attention you and Ken devote to your youngest children, Giggy and the others! I wish all people realized how much dogs can improve the quality of our lives, and be our very best friends, and family members. There are so many of them in desperate need of a loving homes. You and Ken set a good example for others, dogs love to be spoiled and babied!

Lindsay

Hi Lisa and Ken, I hope this question is appropriate, and in no way hurtful, is Giggy okay now? He is such a precious little man, but I know he had some health scares when you first got him. Does he still have alopecia? Love the little clips you've been doing with him, such a darling dog!

Lisa, It was great watching you and Pandora shopping for a wedding dress and to see you with her at the "Chipmonk" show! It is obvious your love for her and it's so great to see and very refreshing change from the drama we have been exposed to. I would love to see you colaborating with your designer to come out with an affordable line of dresses. I just love the dresses you wear on the show! You and Camille are the best dressed of all the housewives. So classy!

Adrienne was so out of line demanding that you have pandy's party there. If she wanted it there so badly she should have offered first. She didn't so, now she is mad. She is mad because she has lost out on all the free publicity she would have gotten on the show. Oh well let her keep to the Kardashian crowd. They are perfectly suited. Tacky, overstated, and hookerish.

Lisa- You are the epitome of class. I enjoy watching your show and look up to you and Ken so much. I aspire to be more like you and Ken as I find you both to be a rare breed of everything that is perfect. Thank you (and ken) for being yourselves as it has helped me feel more confident about myself! xoWE

You were right to NOT hold the party at Adrienne's place, even though she felt differently. It would have been a huge imposition and is NOT on the same level as the business request for carrying wine from your vineyards, even though Adrienne felt it is on the same par, since you both would have benefitted equally by the latter. Stick to your guns and keep true to yourself!

Lisa, I am quite surprised you have taken Taylor under your wing. She is going to cause you nothing but trouble. Oh well, you took in Cedric and he was obviously using you too. I realize you have a contract with BRAVO, but that contract should not force you to befriend Taylor. As for Brandi, she has no class.

Does Lisa have a nicer butt this year??? She's beautiful every year, but this year, pardon the pun, but her bum looks perfect and with a nicer shape than last year?

Lisa, Watching you and your daughter look at wedding dresses really made my heart warm. The two of you are just so sweet together and I'm glad you took time out to spend with her during this special time. I knew you had a wild child deep down inside and you looked fabulous the entire time. It looks like you girls had a blast!!! I am disappointed in the way Kyle spoke about you and try to portray you. Taylor seems really weird in these episodes and it seems really weird that after talking all that smack about you wound up spending her birthday with you. It seems like an exorcism occurred or something she's like day and night and it's really weird to see her so buddy buddy with you. I think you should tread lightly with her as well I don't trust her no matter what she's been through. Thank goodness you didn't get impregnated by a chipmunk lol that was hilarious!! Lisa you are a breath of fresh air and I was happy to see you having a good time you deserve it!!

Lisa, I think you are sublime. You are the greatest mother by always giving unconditional love and support to your kids. Good for you! Great for them! It's so sweet that Pandora wanted you to share in her bachelorette party. Not many young people want their parents along for a let loose time like that! Obviously, she feels very close to you. On the flip side; Taylor's continuous drama and victimhood has been very tiring to view. She seems to thrive on being the center of attention, whether if it's based on pity points or not. Last season, she caused friction between Kyle & Camille AND Kim & everyone else. This season, she hoisted her husband into the spotlight. If he was abusive, wouldn't he have been arrested (had she gone to a hospital for her injuries)? There's something about Taylor's tale of woe that reminds me of Cedric's sob story. I'm not totally buying what Taylor is selling. I hope I'm proven wrong.

How very sad that so many think that Taylor is a social-climber, a user, etc. The poor woman has been going through abuse for who-knows-how long, and then her husband hung himself! Can you imagine prior to the suicide how much of an upheaval her life was in?

Blessings to you, Lisa, for really being her friend.

I can't believe you are a friend with Taylor now. I don't understand what do you have in common with someone like Kyle or Taylor?????

Glad you had some fun!!! You, your daughter, and whole family are lovely. However, please do keep your distance from Taylor. She has manipulated her way into your company "like a spider". She is very envious of your wealth and social standing, and when she cried how she was "trying to be your friend" she was really wailing about the wall of class and privilege that had eluded her and her husband.

I loved your cream handbag you carried on the Vegas trip. Please do share the name of the designer for those of us who aspire to your style! Thank you!

Lisa, I am your biggest fan. Quite honestly you are almost too perfect and I adore that fact. I covet you immensely because it is absolutely genuine. You are entirely gorgeous, you’re in incredible shape, you have a gorgeous, clever and admirable husband, impeccable manners, a kind, kind heart, glorious insight, you’re extremely perceptive and most IMPORTANTLY, you have raised and put forth to the world, two of the most exquisite and kind children . There is just one problem that is making us crazy. It’s the dog. Yes, he is so bloody cute, and we wish him well, love and kisses, BUT, the way you carry him to parties, as if he is a human baby is just embarrassing. I don’t for the LIFE of me; see how you don’t understand that. You absolutely must. It’s embarrassing Lisa and I don’t want you to give those jealous women ANYTHING to zero in on you as a target for. Listen, if the way you treat your dog is the worst thing you do in life, that’s saying something, but it really truly is daft, not charming. It comes across as childish and insensitive to others in the respect department. Have him in your arms at home, that’s quite touching. Have him dressed up in anything you want to, again, lovely. BUT, to carry him in your arms to party’s like he is an invited guest and the constant asking him questions, like he’s human and you are waiting for his answer is really, well embarrassing. Millions of people Lisa, have dogs that we think understand us; you swear sometimes they know what you are saying, millions Lisa. But you’ve got to draw the line and realize he is a dog, ok? It makes you appear out of touch with reality and that is a shame. Now, onto more things other than Giggy, who I do adore btw. PLEASE, you need to create a skin line that is affordable to women. I would love to know your skin care regime, as I’m sure thousands of other fans would too. Please, please create a 3 step cleansing product packaged together with your name. It would be embraced. We are growing tired of the Bravo ladies PUSHING products on us like Adrienne and her show line. It’s passé. It is her main and only focus of this season, and we feel like out intelligence is questioned as she subtly steers us back to her shoe line in EVERY blog, in EVERY scene, and in what I’m sure now will be in EVERY breathing contrived moment on camera until the season’s fruition. YOU, on the other hand, we would welcome with open arms because it would have been not forced and what the fans asked for. A big difference…. Uhg to Adrienne’s show line. Not feeling it for her anymore. Everybody wants to be a Bethenny. Only YOU and Bethenny have the “it” factor. Not Adrienne…

Ignore the comments on giggy. i luv my Louie. Now that my daughter is grown, he is my baby, a member of the fmily not just a dog. Being a somewhat hot middle age lady, i did admire your spunk getting it on w/the Chipmunks. It was all in fun and u definitely proved that us ladies in our 50"s r not dead yet and we defintely still have it. U and Taylor provided fun 4 Pandy's party. I am betting that u 2 had more fun than they did! And believe me, i am not a fan at all, of Taylor, but she does need to get out of her drama crap. She was 1 of my favs at the beginning of this series, but that quickly turned to fast forwardin the parts w/her in them. I feel bad 4 her because of Russell taking his life. To me, that was very sad and u gals and Bravo handled it w/dignity and class. I lost my Max to cancer a yr ago and I still feel sad, even knowing that he was going to die soon, i was powerless to stop the inevitable, so I know how Taylor is feeling w/ the what if I did this or that thinking. Kudos to u 4 putting aside your feelings & helping her. Happy holidays to u, Ken, Giggy & the rest of your family.

LOL!! The video of Giggy trying desperately to rid himself of his pajamas is just too precious, love it!! Pandora looked absolutely beautiful in each of the dresses she tried on, stunning! What do you think the wedding planner will wear, any thoughts? I'm getting images of an Elvis Presley type outfit, cape and all! LOL!

In regards to the first comment that was made about your pup Giggy. Please dont listen to such nonsense. I have two large labs. One who wishes she was small enough to be carried around like Gig. Dogs love to be with their families. Giggy is a very lucky dog to have such attentive parents who give him much love and attention. Like I said, my 100 pnd girl lab, Sophina, wishes she could be a lap dog and carried around. That would be her dream. She's just to big. I can't carry her, but she is indeed very spoiled. Both my dogs are spoiled. They dont like to be outside running around. Just like Giggy they like to be in the house with their family.Dogs are like our children. My male lab(Simon) who just turned 13 is the most beautiful lab Ive ever seen. He's 13 but looks much younger. If I had kept him in a kennel, like so many people with large dogs do, he would look aged, worn, sad. Instead, he's every bit as beautiful as when he was a puppy. We took him to Yosemite, every few feet walked, people from all over the world stopped us to look and pet our massively large beautiful dog. BTW, my dogs wear shirts in the winter. They love them. Please dont give another thought to morons who makes rude comments about Giggys clothes. My dogs love their shirts and costumes at Halloween.

Your the reason I even watch the show.

Hope you're being cautious of Taylor... She seems to be a user to me! Just to climb the social ladder. I don't care for Taylor at all. She has shown time and time again her true colors... and I don't like users !!!

It's strange how nobody has mentioned the ironic fact that Taylor claims that she was too drunk to remember what happened the night of Brandi's party... seemingly convenient for her to not have to recognize or be accountable for her disturbing and outrageous behavior... yet has selective memory enough to remember Kyle doing the splits? Interesting how her memory just seems to come and go...hmm.

Lisa for a while Adrienne was showing Kim kindness and friendship, and confiding in her without telling Kyle What they talked about and that is what Kim needs ...Strong women to demonstrate to Kim how to live indpendently and to Not be Afraid. Of Her Family! They All have royally Bullied and Pushed and Pulled And Torn her Apart her whole Life. It is so sad she can't even put on make up because she was too busy working to support THE Family to grow up normally. HER WHOLE LIFE she's been taking care And later raising a family. She's Never had time for KIM! Now her kids are saying it's them or her new man and they don't live with her! They are in School away! KYLE is being judgemental no support there as usual! Lisa you are wise and kind and a wonderful person ...if you should invite Kim Alone for a talk just maybe it would help her to know someone cares and is supportive from the Group of Ladies other than Adrienne and Paul. Thank You if you can or can't do this because I know how busy you are but I really feel Kim could benefit more from your friendship than fake backstabbing Taylor. Peace
