Lisa shares her joy over Pandora and Jason's engagement and why she doesn't play game.

on Oct 10, 20110

Hello to all of you!

When I watched this episode, as we open with the dinner I was making for Pandora, Jason, and his parents, I marveled at the fact that times like this, the pivotal moments in our lives which are shared willingly and captured on film, can be replayed. Once again, I can indulge in the incredible joy and emotion I felt as Jason announced their intention to marry. I have made no secret of the fact that this decision would be so well received, and I am absolutely overjoyed as we start the planning of the wedding.

Lisa, Was wondering if you wouldn't mind sharing your potato salad recipe. I love entertaining and would love to wow them. Would surely appreciate it!

Thank you and regards.

I didn't have a problem with Kim's slurry speech and odd behavior before the game night episode. Kyle and Kim were horrible to Brandi. Brandi only stood up for herself. Just because the women are closer to Kyle doesn't mean she can treat Brandi however she feels while Brandi just sucks it up. They were high school mean girls all over again, grow up Kim and Kyle.

I would love for you to share your recipe for that potato salad you made when Pandora announced her engagement.

Lisa: I am a gay male living in West Hollywood, CA but I gotta tell you, I think you are so damn sexy it drives me wild. Not only are you incredibly beautiful, I love your moxy and candor. Despite your wealth and fame you seem so very cool and approachable and like the kinda person that would be fun to hang out and be friends with. You are one of the main reasons i watch the show! XOXO

The wedding planner for your daughters wedding is historical. He is so much like Martin Sheen in Father of the Bride. I just laughed, when you said I bet my daughter and him will be fighting over who wares the dress. You have a beautiful estate, and you are very funny, and I like that dry sense of English humor you have. I hope the wedding goes well, or went well if it already happened. Take care.

Lisa you have always been one of my favorite for being such a straight shooter and being a strong person. That is why I was so surprised to see you taking sides with Kyle and behaving the way you did at the fundraiser. That wasn't classy at all! Please continue to be yourself and not a Donna who tries hard to kiss Kyle's behind. Donna might need to do that, but you sure don't. Besides it is obviously that Kyle has not been a good friend to you lately and has shown her true color.

Another thing hope you loosen up and treat Ken with a little more respect. The scene where you kept him from speaking at dinner, not cool at all. The comment about your son, also not cool.

Lisa....I love watching you and really enjoyed this show but lately the way the editing or something just isn't right on the show anymore....every comment I make that is positive about you or Kyle they are not posting and it has been several that leads me to believe they are trying to stir things up....I do not like it .... I don't get it....I will no longer be tuning in to any of the housewives...I hope you get your own show. You and Bethenny from RHONY are the only housewives I really care to watch anymore. Love you and Ken.

I have to hope you saw the Game Night episode and came to your senses. You seem like a decent person.

Lisa, really you are too mature to fall for the Kyle mirage. Please do not go down that thorny road. Let Brandi come into her own in time. For now Kyle and Kim look ridiculous. Hope you also have more sense than to hire Kevin Lee. Rather see the money go to a true charity! Now that would be class, Cheers.

That wedding planner sounds like Martin Short in Father of the Bride. Except Martin Short was lovable . . . the guy you had at your house is obnoxious!! He was actually telling you the way HE wants the wedding, and disregarding yours and Pandora's wishes. I hope that you and/or Pandors get a backbone and fire his ass!! I wouldn't have tolerated him for more than 5 minutes!

Stay away from Kyle. She is not a good person and will only bring you down. Stick with the classy girls like Adrienne. Let Taylor have Kyle,

I adore you Lisa !! Do you remember the episode from last season when Camille had the pool and tennis party? She had a catered English Tea buffet with beautiful food and an English event planner. You should give him a ring! Congratulations to you and your family.

Love, love, love your flowers you wear. You and your husband are an inspiration and I adore jiggy. Being Kyle's friend I hope you can heart to heart her on the attitude - she is getting mean

Too bad you will rush to believe whatever Kyle feeds you and then feel compelled to address it at the fundraiser. Maybe this will open your eyes to swallowing things hook line and sinker!

Please do not let Kyle influence your behavior. She left out quite a bit about game night. Maybe you should watch it again. Brandi started nothing. She was picked on constantly. Your and Kyle's behavior at the charity luncheon was immature and mean. Thought you had a mind of your own. Kyle is still being mean to Kim and dragging her down with her. Don't let Kyle drag you down to her level, which is now trashy. BRAVO: PLEASE POST

Lisa, I love ya but stop taking up for Kyle. Her constant bad behavior needs to be addressed. So happy for your daughter! You will be the best mom when it comes to planning a wedding! You are so classy, it is effortless. I think you need to find a different wedding planner. He will coast you a lot of money. weather you like it or not. His bill to you will be a Million that's how he gets so pretty.

You are my favorite housewife because, despite it all, you are always classy and appropriate...something a few of your cast members could take a cue from!

The wedding planner did seem a bit much - if your daughter wants a wedding dress with pink roses, then she should have them - it's her day!

Kyle vs Camille, Kyle vs Kim, Kyle vs Brandi...what that.... Who is the common denominator?

I love you so much Lisa, you are one of my favorites. The only thing I don't like about you is that when things start to calm down a little you like to stir the pot. I think you like the drama. You tend to do that a lot as long as the fight doesn't involve you. Not very nice.

CongratsLisa

From one mother to another congrats! So happy for you and it is so nice to see such joy and happiness! You also crack me up, you have great timing and one liners. It was also nice to see you not willing to just throw money at the wedding so be SHI SHI (or is it SHE SHE!!??) Keep 'em coming Lisa, totally enjoy you!

So happy about the wedding: you're daughter is beautiful and he is gorgeous. That said: you have always been my favorite housewife but I have to say you are coming off kinda mean because of the jumping on Brandi. You are a career woman and your image is important. I don't know what to say except, it's looking bad and childish. I hope you well and good luck. You really are beautiful and classy and awesome and I just hate that this show is starting to portray you in a less and flattering light.

Ditch the wedding Planner ASAP!!! He really did NOT listen to a word you or your daughter said....!!!!

Please stop being a "mean girl" ~ the color doesn't look good on you. Your behavior at the charity event was painful to watch. Kim can be sarcastic and cruel at times ( I think her heart is in the right place but she obviously has issues) and you seem to be wanting to bond so badly with her that you're not being the voice of reason that you know you are and should be! C'mon Lisa.........bring the classy back please!

Lisa, Will you post your potato salad recipe you made for your dinner with Jason and his parents during last weeks episode? It looked really good!

Thanks.

Lisa, Overall I like you, but there are some things That I don't understand from you: if you "make the rules in Beverly Hills" as you said why you're not more involved in social causes and second why you have mean Kyle as BFF?? and third please drop the fushia and pink in everything you look like a Pepto bottle, you look gorgeous in black, white and blue, and suits more your age.

wow your really letting kyle drag you down, danas comment was not below the belt it was the truth and sometimes the truth hurts. you control your own husband, run your own bussiness and yet you let kyle decide wether brandi is excepted into the group? you went to the charity and acted just like kyle and kim.... shame on you.brandi took it easy compared to what i would have done and said to those two witches.all the woman let kyle be the boss well i think she met her match with brandi. as far as the little boy peeing, REALLY. kyle left her 2 year old pick up poop for gods sake.kyle can dish it out, AND SHE DOES, but she cant take it.

You are a grown woman with your own mind. Why then did you join the band wagon at Camille's charity event and oust the new girl (Brandi)? Your attempt to stay neutral isn't quite convincing - actions speak louder than words. There is absolutely NOTHING you can say to defend Kyle...that was not defending her sister. That was encouraging a woman dealing with some sort of abuse issue to continue acting like it's okay to say and do outlandish and inappropriate things. Why would Kim ever change when Kyle the bully will come along and join in on cutting anyone who dared to speak up. What is this "mean girls" gone bad over 40!

Lisa, I am not sure you even read these comments, but if you do, please do not stoop to the adolescent bully behavior like Kyle. You have far more class and elegance. Stop being manipulated by that witch!

I was so upset with you after watching last nights episode. I really don't understand all the hatred for Brandi and your flaming the fires was a huge disappointment.

Dearest Lisa, By far you are the most graceful and classiest person on this show. For goodness sakes though I have to say I would have tossed that wedding planner out the moment he trashed your daughter's plans for her wedding day. It is her day and more importantly her dress!!! Oh and he failed miserably at listening to your thoughts and showing respect for them. Don't these type of people know that their job is to make your vision a reality based on your ideas, budgets, etc?? This is not his party - it is your daughters and I hope he was not hired!!

Shame on you for jumping on the mean girl wagon! Oh, say hi to Giggy for me. He is now my fave on the show :)

You should heavily reconsider your association with Kyle. Why did you so quickly take Kyle's word for it when you heard the recap of game night? Kyle and Kim were tacky, trashy, and completely juvenile in their behavior. Kim threatened to get physical with Brandi, which would have been interesting, since Brandi has better balance on a broken foot than Kim has any day of the week. Kim is on something, we all know it, and Kyle is a mean girl, for lack of a better expression. You weren't there, I wasn't there, but it is apparent Kyle got called out for being the bully ringleader and wasn't used to it. Brandi was brave against all those nasty women, not one of which said a word in her defense. It seems like everyone is scared of Kyle. Are you?

It must have felt nice to have Kyle's attention and devotion again, considering how she has thrown you under the bus numerous times with Taylor. I don't treat my best friend that way, and you don't seem like you would treat your best friend Kyle that way, yet why do you tolerate how cavalier she is about your friendship?

You are my favorite on this show. Please keep your distance from all the nastiness. It is always a breath of fresh air when the camera cuts to your family scenes.

Enjoyed watching the wedding excitement after the horror of game night, but how disappointing that you so quickly jumped to conclusions about Brandi based on hearsay from Kyle. The way you and Kyle sat through the charity luncheon giggling and whispering like mean high school girls rather then listening to the speakers was disgraceful. So you are ready to bad mouth Brandi and belittle her based on Kyle's slanted opinion, I thought you were the one housewife with a mind of your own. It seems like you just wanted to bond with Kyle (since she's gotten closer to Taylor) just to feel close to her at the expense of another person's feelings. Stick to wedding planning!

Hi Mrs. V, I never comment, but I had to tonight. I do hope you are getting rid of that horrible wedding planner. He did not listen to you or your daughter once.

I wonder if you realized during this season that you were being manipulated by Kyle about what really happened on game night... It was obviously Kyle and Kim's fault. She just coveniently left that out when relaying the events to you... so sad.

Lisa, I just found out that you are coming out with your line of shoes. I am so thrilled. I sent a message to your page when the first season came out about how amazing it would be for you to come up with a line of shoes. Now, I can say "Im wearing my Vander"Pumps." Best wishes to you. You are absolutely my favorite. You carry yourselve with such finess. I look up to you=)

Please dump that wedding planner. the only thing he was missing was his Elvis costume. You have to much class for that nimmy that thought his opinion mattered of what her wedding dress would be.

Lisa, I like you, but on this episode 2 things left a bad taste in my mouth. I don't understand why you stopped Ken from making a toast. He's Pandora's Father and has EVERY right to speak, whether you approve of what he was going to say, or not. If you were joking, then why didn't you say something like "Sorry darling, I was just joking. Go ahead please". I can't stand it when husbands and fathers are, even lightheartedly, easily being poked fun at and made fun of so much these days and society today accepts that as ok. My husband and I consider each other partners but he's still the head of our family. We joke with each other a lot but we NEVER disrespect each other in public or in private. I'm sorry, but I also found your joke to your son pretty sad. I know, I know...it was a joke. But some jokes can be sharp-edged. I think I saw a tiny painful look in his eyes right after you said he was less loved than Jason. Joke, yes. Funny, not quite I don't mean that you are a habitually disrespectful wife and mum. I just thought those 2 instances were a bit uncalled for.

You're really hiring that "she she" Beverly Hills idiot to plan your daughters wedding?? Because he is supposed to be, "the best & the most stylish" ?? Are you really that worried about what people think/say? I'm dissapointed..
