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

Lisa V.: Everything Is About to Boil Over

Lisa V. thinks she was lucky to miss the plane ride over with the rest of the group. 

Hello and welcome back. Firstly, the dream team charging 'round BH I could've done without. It was fun, but a lot of running, and my mind is useless with clues, so it was challenging. Too funny that Brandi was with Kyle, as they weren't even talking!
Anyway I got on the tour bus, back of somebody's bike, whatever it took...We lost our envelope at the beginning--oh, dear. Anyway, it is good to see all of the women having a laugh--very tiring, though. Our last destination was Villa Blanca--finally a glass of rosè! A trip was decided, so off we trot to Holland.

Remember how Brandi was saying, "Yes, Holland, we can all smoke pot!" Well that changes real quick! Having been raised by strict but liberal parents sounds like an oxymoron. What I mean to say is that manners and respect were essential, but as parents who lived in London through the '60s, pot was not a huge deal. The lighthearted banter later takes a dark side...

So I couldn't leave with the others, as I was working then judging the Hero Dog Awards and was already committed--after seeing the journey, I realized how fortunate I was--so Eileen and I joined a little later. David and Yolanda's event looked fabulous, though. To raise that incredible amount of money for such a good cause, I salute that wholeheartedly.

I really felt for Lisa as she explained her feelings in regard to Harry quitting drinking and the death of his brothers on the way to the event.

Lisa Vanderpump

I really felt for Lisa as she explained her feelings in regard to Harry quitting drinking and the death of his brothers on the way to the event. I feel that is absolutely why she is so concerned.

It was a difficult episode to watch as this subject of Kim's sobriety came to the forefront. I knew from experience and reiterated this to Lisa and Eileen that the possibility of this ending well was non-existent, as I had experienced her aggression in Paris, when I gently probed as to whether she had taken a sleeping pill, as that would explain her bizarre behavior. I still can't quite compute the difference between me asking whether she took a sleep aid, which she interpreted as contesting her sobriety, and her taking a pain pill at the poker night, which apparently had no bearing in breaking her resolve to abstain.
I had visited Amsterdam several times, and as I was visiting my family in London, it worked out perfectly--well the logistics did. The trip? Not so much.
You can see the tension between the group--like a pot simmering, then the lid is put on, and next week everything boils over.


Not too much for me too comment on, oh apart from, yes, the Dolce & Gabbana shirt is actually called " The pussy bow shirt." Go figure.
Until next week, my darlings, brace for the storm. As always...Love, Lisa.
