Hello to you all.
I sit here at four o'clock in the morning after watching the reunion, still at a loss for words. It certainly looked the way it felt and I have no words to describe it.
We have seen the tea party, seen game night, and I understand that is how these women roll. But it's not OK to accuse somebody viciously or to sit there silently as you watch a friend who is under attack for hours. That speaks volumes, and I for one don't want any part of it.
I am not going to say anymore. It is what it is, and I will bounce back. I value your comments without them validating my sentiments. I would question my own judgment.
Thank you for your support. . .
Dearest Lisa, First, I think you are am amazing woman and one of the best friends any of the woman could have. I just watched your "house warming/vow re-newel segment. I have never came on one of these sites but watch you weekly. The reason for my being here is I am angry that Faye has the audacity to accuse Brandy of being the cause of "everyone's " problems! Really? OMG To do this at your party # 1 ,is none of her business!? Adrinne and Paul's divorce is Brandy's Fault? Really?! You have more class in your little finger than that ,well I wont say it,, has in her whole body or ever will ! God Bless you and yours. Oh and bravo Yolanda !!!
Just watched part one of season two reunion here in the UK and what I saw was game play again. I am sure most people are aware that when a group of people get together, over a period of time, there is always someone that stands out and that would be you.
Unfortunately that leads to others wanting that position and will play dirty to get it.
I am sure you do not want to stand out within the group, but you do because of your fairness and common sense and how you conduct yourself when all hell is breaking loose.
But because you are fair in all your dealings with people it also leaves you open to be hurt and I believe what they did was hurtful indeed and shame on them.
Hang in there because truth will out in the end.
Lisa you and your family are so fake! You are just as bad as the other ladies...so get off your high horse and amit your a pain in the butt.
“Class” is a fabricated air displayed to flaunt one’s advantage. Grace is a quality of substance and stature. It cannot be bought or forged. Lisa exudes this quality, and is seemingly the only one of the bunch cognizant of the concept.
Lisa you're beautiful!! The only housewives I watch is Beverly because of you and giggy. You're the most beautiful woman I ever seen.
Ohhhh no. That sounds dire. I so hope you don't leave the show. Who will give Brandi the chance she deserves??!! I don't blame you for not wanting to socialize with Kyle, Taylor or Adrienne after all that. : ( I surely do not socialize with anyone who is not a positive force in my life. I feel ridiculous reaching out to the HWs but I hope it does help you at this time because you have to be so very hurt by people you trusted as friends. YOU will rise above all this!!
Lisa - you are the Queen Bee! No matter how the others roll you do it with class, style and compassion! You are the REAL housewife of Beverly Hills!
Lisa, You are a class-act! Do not let these petty arguments from silly women bring you down. You are an inspiration to young girls everywhere how to deal with bullying and people trying to put you down. I for one believe that Adrienne and Kyle true colors were shown. xoxoxoxoxoxoxo kiss Giggy for me!
You are without a doubt, the most classy and successful lady of the bunch. Their attacks were slanderous, mean and I can only imagine how hurtful they must have been. Pandora's wedding was so beautiful, as is your loving family. I am sorry that you have to deal with such jealous and petty women.
It sure seemed to be attack Lisa on part 1. So sorry this has been done to you and I am positive you will rebound. Hang strong!
Whether you realize it or not - you are the reason to watch RHBH! Those who tried to beat you down failed and look very foolish for their efforts.
As a huge fan of yours, I was totally speechless at the way these "ladies" attacked you. And Kyle, the instigator; once she got the ball rolling she didn't say a word. You will rise above the cattiness as that is the type of grand person you are. The others, I really don't care one way or the other.
I agree with Adrienne and Kyle with the comments you make. I think you intentions may be harmless but the comments are not nice all the time and unnecessary. Don't make them Lisa, they will make you look better. I think at times you do try to manipulate a situation your way, so I understand Kyles comments about you being calcuating in a relationship. I don't think you "sold" a story. But, I am sure you have told many stories to reporters and sometimes it makes it hard for others involved to trust you. You are better on your own, but I can't relate to you at all. Yes, you all have more wealth than me but the other ladies have qualities I can relate with.
Lisa - The "ladies" will never allow you to be happy as long as they are miserable. I thought you handled their barbs with class. If they had issues they should have brought them up before the taping. These ladies are not your friends. By the way - Maloof Hoof was hysterical and I would not have taken offense at all. But then again, I am secure in my talents and abilities...
Lisa you are my fav housewife of all the housewife shows. You are elegant, humorous, loving, fun, adorable, and giving. Hold your head high.
Take it as your AHA moment. You rec'd confirmation that Adrienne is envious of you and not a true friend. Kyle is not a true friend either. She's become an attention seeking mean girl and she was totally ok with that until the viewers called her on her behavior and then she began to back peddle. Too little...too late. Remain the classy quick witted woman you are. You're a blast and all the best to you and your family!
Love you Lisa! You could see the pain in your face as you were attacked by Adrienne and Kyle. I honestly believe you when you said you swear on your children that you did not sell any story to Radar and think by the look on Adrienne's face she might have then realized she went too far. Funny how yesterday there were stories on Radar saying Brandi stated there was a meeting with the other housewives to discuss how to go after you at the reunion. The thing I found most amusing was Adrienne looking for a reason to fight. The best she could come up with was you calling her dog "Crack-pot". I laughed out loud when she said she was so hurt by that comment since he is like one of her children. Can you say PUHLEASE! She obviously has no sense of humor and has been bad mouthing you for a long time to her friends and employees.
The reunion show last night was difficult to watch. The most surprising to me was Adrienne. Where on earth does her sudden double standard come from? To accuse you of attacking her business/livelihood and state that you would hate it if she attacked Sur or Villa Blanca. Then to later in the show accuse you of selling stories to Radaronlne. In your position as the owner of restaurants where many celebrities go - surely this was indeed attacking your business?!? If clients lacked confidence in your discretion then perhaps they would no longer go to your restaurants. I also thought it crazy that she wouldn't accept your apology for the 'hoof' comment, saying that it was 'already out there'. Does this mean that if she is in the wrong ever and apologizes, she expects that no one should ever accept her own apology??? I am so disappointed in her for you Lisa!!
U should nt lose a wink of sleep over these problemed women! U have a great family and business ....and I m sure much better friends! U r a class above them! Re - when Bravo did the same thing at the RHONJ reunion to Teresa - they pick they strongest one to try and take down - u were it! RE - cream rises to the top! They r the ones that looked pitiful!
You got a beating this season! WOW- but I guess these are all lessons we learn in life. Best wishes to you and moving forward chose your friends more carfully
Lisa, I can't tell you how disappointed I am in Kyle, Taylor and Adrienne. You've been very nice to them and this is how they pay you back?? It stinks.
Awe Lisa . . . You poor thing. I'm sure you are very hurt. So sorry for you. You deserve much better. But, you must feel better being vindicated by RadarOnLine! I think Adrienne needs to come out with a public apology. She should feel like a complete fool. If that is any indication of how she runs her businesses, Lord help her and her brothers.
You always carry yourself with such dignity. Some of the other women were incredibly catty to you last night. I have lost all respect for Kyle and Adrienne. Keep your head high.
Lisa I love you! I am a huge fan and found myself becoming more upset as the reunion show went on. These women were horribly cruel and unfair to you. I have only seen your supposedly "not kind" comments as funny and extremely witty. I hope that the other womenread the backlash from the rest of us and realize how ridiculous and petty their accusations were. Stay strong! I think you are an amazing woman and the overwhelming Beverly Hills housewife favorite!
Lisa, I adore you! As I watched the reunion I was blown away at how the ladies acted towards you. I was dissappointed to say the least. Thank you for sharing yourself and family with us this year it was a delight from the beginning of the season to the end. May God Bless you and your family,
You came off SO MUCH BETTER than Adrienne and Kyle last night. Your personality and wit trump whiny jealousies. I would be hurt by that crew, dust the dust from my feet and move on. Something tells me you have many better places to be than with that crew. 'Maloof hoofs' not only isn't insulting, she should've thought of it for the name of her line. PU-Leeze! and regarding your selling information to radar online... they should be ashamed of themselves. And, just for the record, as entertaining as Kyle is, OF COURSE she has to be the center of attention! Duh!!
I thought throughout the season you have always been true to yourself. I was very disappointed in the way the ladies treated you. It seems as if they are a little too sensitive and lack a sense of humor. It also unnerved me that both Adrienne or Camille would question YOU and not a reporter when it comes to selling a story. A reporter would say anything to sell a story- those ladies gave someone who is for "sale" the benefit of the doubt instead of you, their friend. I truly hope you continue on the show the same as you always have been- it is nice to see someone who is grounded in reality! I think you are a tremendous woman and someone to be looked up to you. I wish you only the best. Gracie
Lisa has been a wonderful friend to everyone this season and last. My 3 girls and I think Taylor is not a person we would want to turn our back on. Kyle is just mean and should be thankful she has such a good friend in Lisa, who has stood by her all of this year and last. And Adrienne is too thin skin. In closing anyone would be lucky to have Lisa as a friend and I hope she sees Kyle for what she really is, two faced.
Lisa, you are a MOST classy, warm and sincere woman. Your sense of humor is riotous, but I think a lot people just don't get it or have much of one, Adrienne being one of them. I like her, but she SO needs to lighten up, and doesn't seem too happily married. It is all about her! Ken and your love is so clear to see. The "Maloof Hoof" comment was brilliantly funny, as you said "a play on words", a rhyme! There was nothing MEAN about that whatsoever! She is upset because she did not get the publicity of Pandora's Bachelorette Party, but she was very, very, dismissive when you mentioned she did not help you get your wine in her venues! She passed you off to an underling instead of handling it herself like a top-notch business woman would do for a dear friend! Sorry Adrienne, I too am a business woman. You need to get a life and some down time with your hubby (who you COULD show some appreciation to). I am none too happy with Kyle's comments either. She seems to be turning out to be really 2-faced. The 3 of you were always my favorites, but that is fading. Camille is turning into a very decent person this season, when last season I could not stand to hear her open her mouth. Hang tight Lisa, you are many people's favorite, and Adrienne is fast losing points! She used to be very neutral, but she certainly has turned coat! How would she know if you sold a story - just because a reporter tried to get info from Camille and stated that you did it?? Come on Adrienne - you are supposed to be way smarter than that. Those reporters would tell anyone anything to make someone think it was ok for Camille to comment or sell them one! You should have dismissed that with a grain of salt and given your friend the benefit of the doubt!
I was so sad to see you blindsided like that. But as you have alluded to, after watching the tea party and game night, it became obvious that you were being manipulated by someone who just wanted to stay in the middle of everyone's business and now apparently feels she has enough people on her side to be the queen bee. You're a class act all the way and don't ever let Kyle that close to you again. She doesn't deserve your friendship.
Doesn't Camille and the others know what a sleeze reporters or any sales person can be? Of course the reporter said "Lisa sold me stories" in hopes to get her to sell a story! For Camille to believe a reporter over you is ridiculous!! There was not one true loyal friend there on your behalf.
You seem to have a great sense of humor and unfortunately the ladies are trying to use this show to increase their businesses. Andrienne doesn't care if your daughter's party was at the Palms, she just cares that her hotel was not highlighted. So what did she do? Threw a party there anyway with the other girls. And having fun with the naming of her shoe line? She needs to not take herself so seriously. If her shoe line is worth the money then it will succeed regardless of your humor. I enjoy your humor and appreciate Brandi for being real.
Adrien was way out of line and sadly the others sat back and said nothing. You gained more fans last night because of the way you handled her, she is now just one of the sisters that hardly anyone likes.
Lisa, You are the only Lady in the bunch! You are the epitome of class and elegance. Brandi, although not a Lady...is a hoot! Love her! I also wish Camille had spoke up for you more, I hope she redeems herself over the next two episodes.
You are my favorite housewife! I watched the reunion special last night and could not believe that these women (who call themselves friends) would gang up on you like that. You are the classiest, nicest person on this show and you have never been anything other than kind to all of them. I dont think that Adrienne has a sense of humor at all in regards to your comments about the "maloof hoof" and the "vander pump". those were funny, cute comments that you made, anyone with a normal sense of humor can see that. I dont think that these ladies are "true" friends and I sincerely hope that Bravo gives you your own show because you deserve it. I will definitely be watching when that happens! Hope to see you when I am in Beverly Hills this summer, we are planning on having lunch/dinner at Villa Blanca. Kind regards. Gail in MI
Lisa, You have been my favorite since Season 1. You are classy, intelligent, and seem to rise above all the non-sense. I was shocked at the things Kyle and Adrienne were saying about you and even more shocked that no one came to your defense. You have a lot of fans who are on your side!
those ladies are in high school. your comments were obviously in jest and they need to not take themselves so seriously all the time. what are they so insecure about?!? you're funny and genuine and are the one who comes out looking mature and above the bs! don't let them get you down. eventually they'll turn on eachother.. as all mean girls tend to do. you are definitely above rolling with this crew although i'd hate to not get my dose of Lisa Love on the next season... i'm torn =( but i love you!
Lisa - I was stunned by the reunion (part 1) as well. For Kyle to say talking to you is like playing against a chess master is inexplicable. Were you supposed to sit there and not respond to her? I am sorry this happened to you. You have nothing to worry about in terms of perception because you're obviously not hiding anything and you have integrity. I was also surprised Adrienne assumed the US Weekly reporter was telling the truth about you without asking you about it before she accused you of doing what he said you did. I was thrilled when you said that was slander. I think she realized her mistake in not verifying what she'd heard and apologized. You're a good person. You must have many people working for you at SUR and Villa Blanca and you knew the waitress's name (the one who has a history with Brandi's ex) and how long she worked for you. You handled that situation beautifully for both the waitress and Brandi. Also, you offered Rosia your shoes - these little things show who you are. You are lovely, and I hope to see more of you on Bravo in your own show.
Lisa, I was so sad for you as I watched the reunion show last night. Personally, I found your comments funny throughout the season. I appreciate that you showed kindness to Taylor once your realized she was in a bad situation. For anyone who has never been through abuse, it is hard to understand why people would stay and why they act the way they do. It is just something that can't be understood unless you walk down that path.I was so surprised that Adrienne was offended by the wordplay. It would seem that as successful as she is, that she would have a thicker skin. It appears more that she was angry that she didn't have the opportunity for free promotion for The Palms and that was why she was scrambling for something to complain about. At any rate, relax and realize that your intentions were good and hopefullly with time, the others will realize that they over reacted.
Lisa - I was shocked at how you were attacked!! First of all, I don't think that any of them get your British humor. It's dry and it's mistaken for sarcasm and it's their loss they don't appreciate it. I have always found you to be fair and honest - and you own up to your mistakes. You have also defended others in similar circumstances. At the risk of sounding like Camille in season one - I think they are jealous of your popularity!
Lisa: To think you call these phonies friends! They did assassinate your character - all on the word of a sleazy fake gossip pusher. Anyone with a brain would not listen to any information coming from that source. All season long I've thought that you, Camille and Adrienne are the ones with some class. The list is now down to you alone!
You are the best!!!! I watch the show because you are just great and so is your family. But, I don't know how you could still be friends with Kyle. She bashed you all season, but expected you to stand by her through it all. That is not a true friend. With friends like that....who needs enemies. And Adrienne is the biggest hipocrite of them all. Nothing about her makes sense.
Just keep being you...you're lovely inside and out.
This puts new meaning to "you find out who your friends are". Lisa, you don't have to say anything, I couldn't believe how you were attacked last night. I'm glad you & Brandi have become friends, at least she can keep it real. Looking forward to seeing you next season!
Lisa, I really didn’t get why on the reunion show you were such a target. I really get your humor, sometimes we all say things that we think are funny at the expense of others. I try to warn my friends a cheap shot is worth a good giggle, something money can’t buy, so don’t take it so serious which is what Adrienne seems to do. Adrienne should have really apologized for her comments that you sell stories for money. Of course a ‘reporter’ would say she doesn’t it, no big deal. I don’t get why the ladies never approached you about the reporters comment. Anyway, I thought Pandora’s wedding was simply beautiful (thanks for sharing) and they looked very happy. OH, why did it take so long to dismiss Patrick from you party????? He didn’t have to kiss anyone goodbye, nor did he deserve an explanation, he really disgust me. You and Ken enjoy your time off and hopefully you will still join the cast for another fun filled season..
