Lisa explains why she's glad she missed Adrienne's bbq and what she expects from her friends.

on Oct 4, 20110

We had dinner and, once again, I found myself defending my attitude towards Taylor. I have always maintained that "I wasn't masquerading as her best friend," which is so vastly different than saying "I am not your friend." Even one word can change the meaning of a sentence, and I was sick of arguing about it.
I knew that Taylor was going through a difficult time -- so I always told her if she needed help to I was there. I told her that very early on. I suspected she was bad mouthing me to Kyle, but to what extent I wasn't sure. I just knew her situation was precarious, therefore I tried to help.

I am still on the fence with you.. A lot of things I like about you then you turn around and disappoint me. First and far most Kyle is not your friend. No friend of mine would speak to my husband the way Kyle spoke to your husband. It was very apparent you where less than happy but not to address this situation with Kyle. Then the next time I see you two together you seemed quite excited about Kyle and Brandi's fight as if you where thriving on the gossip... Class comes and goes apparently in Beverly Hills. Sorry not your number 1 fan.

Lisa, you, Ken, AND Giggy are welcome at my dining room table Any Time, and I will set out my good china and crystal and silver, for ALL three of you! (It's a GLASS, People, it can be washed very easily!) Caring for and loving a pet is much more important than a piece of glass! What they give us in return is truly priceless!

I really think people don't get what you're trying to say. You and Adrienne are probably the most logical and realistic out of the bunch. Kyle is too loyal to taylor and it's amazing how your suspicions of taylor were right! anyways, i really admire how elegant and reasonable and classy you are!

Lisa, you need to learn that Taylor is a drama queen, and everything is about the camara and the effect her actions and words will have on the cutting room floor. As far as Kyle, she's not your friend now, if she ever was. She's not someone I would trust to have my back, if she decimated her sister last year the way she did, and this is her sister, imagine how 'loyal' she's to you? Open your eyes and Adrienne would be your better match for a friend, you're both classy and tell it like it is in a classy manner without the ego getting in the way. Kyle is way too 'two faced' to trust.

Lisa, I absolutely love you on the show. You don't have to do any explaining when it comes to Taylor. Unless there is something in your Bravo contract that says you have to be best friends with all the other women on the show... you don't have to like any of them or even care about what bothers them. Taylor is a big girl, if she wants to break down crying every time someone doesn't want to be her best friend or says something to her that is less than flattering... that's her problem. You don't have to "explain" your position...she just needs to grow up and accept life like the rest of us. You don't have to be anyone's "friend" to be genuinely concerned about them when there is something to be genuinely concerned about. She doesn't get that, and that isn't your fault.

Lisa;

Kyle and yourself have been my 2 favorite "housewives" since the series started with the OC wives. I am not sure why this season you are being portrayed in what I see so far as a negative light. I feel you carry yourself with honesty and class, something to be admired and not threatened by. Taylor before the news broke about her husband you can tell she is a broken person. She does not say what she means and does not own her feelings. I am concerned that she is pulling Kyle into it. I can only assume Kyle has the save the starving puppy syndrome. I hope she finds the help she needs. And for your husband to not feel therapy is for him was NOT A DIG AT HER...and why anyone fed into is beyond me.

I love you and Ken and Adrienne has really made an impact this season. Stay true to you. Though I do feel is not an issue for you, I enjoy the show and wish you all nothing but happiness in all your endeavors.

Lisa, I get it. You were trying let Taylor know that you were sincere in your offer. If you had just made the offer and not addressed the tension between you, it would have seemed insincere. Love watching the transformation of your new lounge.

Lisa - I admire you so much, you are the only "real" woman on the show! You tell it how it is, and if other people can't accept that, then its their problem not yours. You have more class, style, personality and happiness than a lot of the other girls, so do not let them talk down to you!

Lisa, Out of every housewive show your are my all time fave... seems that some of the other housewives are turning on you but dont fall into their bs because your are awesome just the way you are!!!!! (Hopefully, Bravo will post this.. Ive commented before but they never post them.)

You've been a show favorite, along with Kyle, from the beginning. You are smart, funny, honest, and a good friend to those you call your friends. Because of that, I was shocked to see your jealousy over Taylor's friendship with Kyle. It's been clear from the beginning of the show that she (Taylor) is troubled, so I don't understand your insecurity over her friendship with Kyle. I understand not trusting her motives, but it seems out of character for you to be jealous. Hopefully you've patched things up with Kyle, because it's not a good look on you. You are far too beautiful to behave like that.

Lisa, you and Adrienne are the classiest of the bunch. You are so right about Taylor, but we saw it last year when she wanted to pull an Oklahoma -- she's a social climber and a back stabber....and it has become even more evident since she sold her story to Entertainment Tonight. Regardless of whether she needs money or not, some things are better left private, but it sure boosted ratings for the RHOBH......

Lisa, last season I saw you as the most reasonable on the show. This season, I sense you are jealous of Taylor. I am giving you the benefit of the doubt though. Have other things happened between you, Kyle, and Taylor to explain your attitude? It seems there is a piece to this puzzle missing, perhaps even a few.

Hi Lisa & Giggy, I don't know what Kyle is thinking, but if she believes Taylor is her loyal friend, she is sadly mistaken. I'm truly sorry that Ken felt he shouldn't have made the comment he did about seeing a therapist, clearly he was expressing his opinion. Kyle was rude and deliberately aggressive toward him without provocation. Mauriceo stated that he initially felt anger about Russell taking his own life, and I completely understood what he was saying. That said, some may have reacted negatively toward his comment, Kyle should be reminded of that. With regard to Giggy being at the dinner table and drinking our of one of Adrienne's wine glasses, where do think family members should sit!! LOL!!

I absolutely think you and your husband are really the best. You obviously are extremely wealthy yet maintain a humbleness. AND I love the sense of humor. I can't express that enough. Your compassion is easily recognizable, your strength undeniable and your honesty is always at the forefront. YOU GO GIRL.

I aways thought that Kim got bum wrap last season over the whole Camile/Kyle fiasco. She was accused of not having her sister's back when I think she and you, Lisa, were the only ones who saw that whole thing was exaCerbated by Taylor. She was the one stirring the drama. I think both you and Kim were very loyal to Kyle, maybe more so than what she deserved. It seems Kyle expects more loyalty than she is willing to give back.

Lisa, you rocked it, as usual. I support your decisions and your logic behind them 100%.

Thanks for all that you do, and thanks for keeping it real. You've work so hard for all you have, just as we all should. I admire and respect you. In fact, if I were a human I'd want to be just like you!

If you need me to bite anyone for you, just say the word. I'm kind of itching for a good bite these days, anyway, so please let me know. Until then, I'll just be here as your biggest fan. I adore you and respect you and can't wait for the next episode.

xoxoxo, OEF

Lisa, With every episode that I see, I am even more convinced that you are a real class act. I love that you are open and honest, yet kind at the same time. While I know that Taylor went through a lot, she needs to stop dragging other people into her drama-It's always about her! Also, I thought Dana would be fun to watch and seems genuinely nice, but bragging about how much you spent on something is just tacky in any situation. It wasn't just the sunglasses, she also pointed out how much a pair of earrings cost to Kyle. Love to see you on a third season, so ignore that drama mamas and stay!

Miss Lisa You have never told Taylor you were "not her friend". I think your class, again, proceeded you and when you said, again, and again "I know we haven't been the best of friends but..." you were trying to make her feel comforable enough to reach out for help. You were right to do so. When a person reaches out, it can be to people you would lest expect, because when it is time, it is time. You wanted her to know, if she was ready, you were there. You are very loyal. You saw a friend in need and reached out. How could anyone take issue with that! "I know we haven't been the best friends in the world but",...kindnest words you could ever say to an aquaintance in a domestic abuse situation!

Dear Lisa, I do not understand how you can equate a dog at the table with having an understanding of proper everyday manners. You and Ken may find that acceptable but many others find that stomach churning. Out of consideration for the feelings of others alone I feel it is wrong to bring your animal to the dinner table. At a formal dinner party where you are a guest, it's an unforgivable breach of etiquette. I just fail to understand how you could do that.

Lisa, you have changed this season and not for the better, let Kyle have her friend and GET over it, you were always my favorite but not this seaon I sure hope things change fast. You have all the money in the world and yet you act like u do, I don't understand it...... PLEASE go back to the Lisa we know and love

Lisa, I am 31 years old and can only wish now and in the future to come I can have those assetts that are nothing but great like you. You are a good friend to Kyle and I hope nothing ( immature grown-ups) come in between you guys. You are a lady. Theres not many people who would extend a helpling hand, especially those we don't get along with. I know you know who I'm talking about. I hear people say that the "housewives" can't compare themselves to the "average" people, and 90% of the time that is true. But you Lisa just have this great nature that makes people gravitate towards you and feel like we are relateable. My 11 year autisic son just loves you and Giggy so much, yes he has to watch RHOBH every Monday, but he can't get enough of you. He will asked every Monday night to watch the Princess show because he says you sound like a princess! I asked him if he thought mommy was like a princess and he said no, only Mrs. Lisa! So just know that a special, kind hearted little boy and his momma think you and all of your family are truly wonderful!!!! He doesn't get much joy from anything, so just know that his opinion means alot!!!! Oh by the way- you were very sweet to be there for Taylor even though you guys aren't close. That speaks volumes of what kind of Lady you are. Thank you Lisa for making Monday nights enjoyable for my son Michael, and me. God bless you, your family, and everything you have worked hard for. You are so nice and and appreciated!

Lisa acknowledged the obvious, that she and Taylor were not friends, but despite that, she still wanted to help Taylor. That's why Lisa mentioned not being Taylor's friend. A lot of drama was made out of a neutral comment.

BRAVO/LISA & Ken & Giggy...or Giggy/Lisa, etc. Thanks you are probably the only person in this world that could tell me to go to? With your beauty, braines and okay, mostly that voice (accent), I'd say "thank-you"..

Picture shows the six (6) of you...dividing that. First three much of the same, to "picture" the best for the last is the most amazing ladies which I enjoy watching. The first three (3) is like going to Disneyworld, after a few times...your bored.

PS The Bimbo with the sunglasses can be pictured with the first three. OR, I think of her with that sitcome, Pearl with a price tag on her hat. Tacy & BH..no.

Lisa, you are such a class act, and you deserve SO much better than what I imagine you'll be getting this season. How I WISH Brave would give you your own spin off ala for RHONY Bethany Frankel. Hint, hint Bravo!

I like you a lot! But, please be more respectful at others' people houses and do not seat your dog st the dinning table much less your husband let the dog drink from a very expensive glass......very bad manners to me....Either way I like you and Kyle is not your friend now you are going to start seeing her true colors. Do not even bother with Taylor she has her own story and drama, and does not want your help! Kim needs help maybe you can do something for her.... :)

Lisa, you're absolutely awesome.

I watch CNN and would love to see you do more CNN work. You would make a great addition to that camp.

Honestly, I have no idea why you are loyal to Kyle, as she obviously doesn't reciprocate the action.

I agree with another viewer who said that Taylor is Kyle's "Cedric", so perhaps you see that and haven't voiced it and you may realize that you might have more in common with Kyle than meets the eye. Hmmmmm!?

BostonGirl88

Hi Lisa,

Taylor is putting a wedge between you and Kyle. Every chance she gets, Taylor is claiming the be a victim of yours and Ken's to Kyle. Unfortunately, Kyle's buying into it. You were very honest with Taylor when you said something like, We haven't been the best of friends but I want you to know I'm here to help you. And Taylor turned that around again and claimed again to Kyle that you said something to hurt her. Ugh.

I hope Kyle opens her eyes and sees what's really going on. It would be a shame to lose your friendship with her.

Plain and simple, you and Adrienne are the best of the bunch. I enjoy watching you on the show. Thanks so much.

I think what you said to Taylor was, "I know we haven't always been the best of friends but I want you to know I am here for you." Something to that effect, I thought it was really nice of you and I can't believe how they are blowing it out of context. I've always felt the same way about Taylor as you do and this season she is just proving those suspicions more and more true.

HousewifeHYSTERIA

I am glad that you appreciate the bloggers.I am happy to take to the blogs and say that you remain the most loyal and trustworthy of the ladies. I would ordinarily add Adrienne to the mix, but that Cedric thing does not make sense in her bringing Brandi to the mix, other than the obvious dramatics it ensues.

Agree with those of you who think that Lisa could spin off a show. She is so much more funny and interesting (except crazy but loveable Kim; and Kyle) than the others. Lisa pegged Taylor spot on!! and early! So did Kim. Just guessing that Taylor feeds Kyle's resentment of Kim and that is why Kyle buys into her. In a recent show Taylor (when she saw Cedric) was alluding that Lisa scared her. Frankly, Taylor reminds me of Danielle of RHONJ. 'Nough said.

i agree with you lisa, i belive loyalty is the most important thinh in a friend- and i dont think kyle is being loyal to you at all when you were clearly by her side last season. kyle is showing a different side to herself and i find it off putting, as well as the sunglasses!

I-told-you-so

Lisa, I adore you but I can see Kyle's point. You've made it QUITE clear that you have issues with Taylor (and rightfully so in many circumstances) but you can be there for a person without reminding them that "you're not their friend". It almost seems like a oximoron but I can also see your point in constantly having to defend yourself against Kyle at every waking moment over anything Taylor related. Although I find it manipulative on Taylor's part to slide up and divide friends for her own agenda, Kyle is responsible for her own actions. You did an excellent job pointing out the cause of Princess Diana's death and hopefully bringing to light how dangerous the papparazzi can be.

You are the most beautiful in the bunch with Kyle. Plus you are kind and have great values. God bless you. I feel you may be out of their league, you are much too high up for them. The one thing you do have to stop is having your puppy drinking from others' glassware. Some people do not like that and you have to be respectful of that. But that is the only thing, and I know how silly we get with pets! lolz. Good luck!! Keep on being you because you are doing it right.

Oh, and I must have missed the episode when you were defending Kyle to Camille. You stayed out of that all together as I recall and never defended your so called friend Kyle to Camille. At the infamous dinner you didn't say a word in Kyle's defense.

Lisa, it is ridiculous of you to equate Kyle simply disagreeing with how you handled approaching Taylor with being disloyal to you-which you clearly are doing in this blog. You and your husband do not take kindly to even the most mild of criticism. It seems that the honesty you are always talking about isn't appreciated when it's coming back at you. Kyle was honestly expressing to you that your approach to Taylor wasn't the best. And, it is possible to think that Dana is nice AND that her bragging about the glasses was gross. It's not either or.

You are a true caring friends and true caring friends tell their friends the truth, not just always what they want to hear. I love your relationship with Ken and feel you two are a wondeful testament to those who think marriage and commitment aren't important, don't last, etc. You truly are blessed.
