Onwards We Go

Lisa shares her thoughts on Taylor's tough issues, expanding her business, and what she learned watching the other ladies this week.

So this week we return to Colorado and continue to see Taylor dealing with some tough issues. We all tried to be supportive. We tried our utmost to understand.

It was troubling to witness, and I felt a lot of empathy towards her and what we now know to be an extremely difficult situation.

I found the whole trip exhausting, so when we returned home, I just felt relieved to flop back into my blanket of security, with my husband and getting back to the serious business of snogging the Gigster -- for which I am highly criticized!

I heard that the premises next door to one of my existing restaurants Sur was possibly available for sale. I knew there was potential for another restaurant to take it, and I was desperate to convince my husband to support my choice and venture forward into another business plan -- a bar with a little gem of a garden, something so unique in WeHo. it was a very exciting prospect for me. My mind was racing ahead of how I could decorate and transform this empty shell into a sexy space. 

Oh, I am so aware that with the economic recession, it is a precarious time -- with a multitude of restaurants and bars closing and that my husband might be hesitant. We in life have to take chances, have to move forward keeping our eye on the ball and maintain our ambition. That being said cautiously and optimistically we. . .with a little persuasion. . .proceeded onwards with the journey of creating Sur Lounge, which actually opens this week!

I love working, thrive on challenges, and sometimes make the mistake of believing I can do it all. I think a lot of women when their children grow up need to keep busy so as not to dwell on their empty nest. I for one, am exactly that. When I look at Kyle even picking up poop with cute, chubby, gorgeous little Portia, I know that if I had the chance to rewind the clock 20 years and return to the role I loved best I would without any hesitation. But life doesn't afford us those chances.

I find it fascinating to watch the dynamic between Adrienne and Paul and her attitude to business and love. Through these aspects of the show we gain insight into the other lives of these complex women, and how we navigate our way through the next few months it is an adventure I am glad you the viewers can share with us.

Sometimes we endure harsh criticism for choices we make or things we say and that is just part of the many facets that being on a reality show entails. That being said onwards we go.

I love your comments it keeps us in touch with your perspective, so thank you for watching and taking the time.

Love always

Lisa

Brandi: I'm Always Here For You, Kim

Brandi focuses on the positive this week as this season's RHOBH comes to an end.

Hey Bravo Fans,

Today was a fabulous day--t was my baby Jake’s birthday. We got his favorite Oreo ice cream cake, and for our family celebration, it was perfection. I can’t believe he’s already eight. I had to hold back my tears when I realized I will never again use that number eight candle. #mommymoment

It has been a really exciting week for me. My Sonoma County chardonnay, Unfiltered Blonde, launched for pre-sales this week, and despite it being tax season, the first day alone was a huge success. Thank you! The website is up now at www.unfilteredblonde.com. The creation of the wine was an incredibly long and careful process, and I couldn’t be happier or more proud of my finished product. I’m sure you're all as excited as me that this week was the FINALE episode of BATSH-- crazy RHOBH reunion. 

I could talk about the she said, she said, she said… but let’s not and pretend we did. It’s been a long season, kind of centering on one night that really isn’t worth the attention it was given. I’m tired of it, it happened several months ago, I’m sure you’re tired of it. You know why? Because it’s old news and in the PAST! 

Eileen, your house is lovely. Sorry I said otherwise for the sake of a laugh. I really like Vincent, he is super cool, your little boy is adorable, you seem like a good stepmom, and I wish you and your family the very best.

Lisa R., I really loved you on my podcast. You made me laugh and rolled with punches. I really enjoyed our interview, and I enjoyed most of the season with you. I think that’s what I’m going to take away and forget about the rest. I think sometimes you make it harder on yourself with your Twitter feed, but I’m choosing not to engage. I really liked a side of you, and you seem to have a beautiful family.

Lisa V., I had a lot of fun with you and Ken. I will always have a special place in my heart for you guys. I wish Ken the best of health and a speedy recovery. 

Kyle, best wishes on you and your family’s endeavors. My sincerest wish is that you and Kim could be as close as you ever were in the near future.

You are a strong chica and I know your family is better for it.

Kim, love having you as a BFF. I’m always here for you, and I hope you are always here for me. You are a strong chica, and I know your family is better for it. You are hilarious, and I love our funny talks and text-offs. Laughter is the best medicine. I heart you.

Yo, my dear, dear Yo, I will see you soon. I love you, you are so strong and so brave! I know you are going to kick Lyme disease’s ass! Anything you need, just emoji me.

I want to thank all my supporters for always being there for me regarding all of my other endeavors, including my books, podcast, Celebrity Apprentice, app, my t-shirts, and finally my WINE and for allowing me to be me.

Ok guys, this is the big week. This is the Make*A*Wish Los Angeles Walk for Wishes Walkathon. Me and the boys pledged to try to raise $15,000--I have $12,625 so far. We need $2,375 by Friday at midnight, every dollar counts. Thank you!

I heart you all!

Xoxo
