Lisa addresses Taylor's accusations, her reaction to Brandi, and why she participates in reality TV at all.

Hello and welcome back. I would just like you to bear in mind this was all filmed six months ago...

This week after watching, many things became clear to me. I had no idea that Taylor was accusing me of something so sneaky and despicable as going to the tabloids with her personal information. That is deplorable, and as a woman with a conscience, who has many celebrity friends (where secrecy is crucial), and who also owns restaurants and is therefore privy to many situations shall we say, is an absolute insult, and I must say hurtful.

There are times when, as many of you have asked me in the past, I think why on earth am I doing this? Where I have had to reflect and ask myself honestly what would make me open my life for the world to see? My answer has always been, I have nothing to hide. I am honest and straight forward and not in the habit of being disloyal, and I try to be as supportive as possible of those close to me.

I knew Taylor to be in a situation that, from what she had told me, was a very difficult one. I have many times said to her, "I know we are not that close but if you ever need me, call me at any time of the day or night." I always worried about her. Many things in the past just didn't seem to ring true. Each time I saw her she was extremely emotional. She told us in Colorado that she didn't eat and was losing weight at an alarming rate. I feel foolish now as she later gave an interview regarding some new diet pills she'd been taking.
