Well, here we are -- almost home from what I can only explain as a journey riddled with emotional hurdles and at times almost insurmountable obstacles. But as a group we weathered through, though at times with loyalties divided. I for one have felt disappointment at the way many things transpired.
Life is a learning process and this experience has taught me greatly. Of course there were moments that I questioned my decision to open my life to the cameras, when previously I had been cocooned in a world and protected by people that love me. I had many lengthy discussions with Pandora regarding her wedding, remembering that I had entered into this domain of my own choosing and, although supported by my family, it was not what she had signed up for. So how much she was willing to share? The decision ultimately needed to be made by her and had to be her choice -- one where there would be no regrets. Jason was less bothered, but Pandy had many reservations. As you probably noticed there was a surreal, almost dream-like quality to the wedding. It's a little complicated to explain, but the actual shooting was entirely different. It was handled very sensitively. The wedding and all that you see is totally with Pandora's blessing.
As this vision of loveliness tentatively walked towards me, her hand encircled by the man who had loved her since she first entered into this world and who I knew would never be ready to part with her, I drew a breath that was of relief at seeing all of our plans come to fruition, but also of pride knowing that she had never looked more beautiful.
It is always a stressful situation, inviting hundreds of people to your home, but this day, planned to perfection, really was relatively calm. My daughter was nervously excited that she was about to unite with man she loves, and I truly knew deep in my heart that it was also the union of two families that loved each other.
Love you Lisa!!! You seemed to be blindsided by Adrienne and Kyle ganging up on you at the reunion. I applaud your being a class act through it all. I think those ladies will soon find that the fans are not going to be in favor of their mean spirited behavior towards you!!!
Lisa, you have always been my favorite, you are the definition of what a real lady is like. you are always so gracious. I would not watch the show if it wasn't for you, your handsome husband Ken and your beautiful daughter & handsome son. I was happy to see the hair cut for P andora's wedding though. Have a wonderful day!
Lisa, dear Lisa, Watching that joke of a reunion show last night, really irked me on your behalf. Good Lord, these women are not your friends, at least Kyle and Adrienne. They cannot stand that you are the far and away favorite this season. Everyone thinks Adrienne was ridiculous about the bachelorette party being at another casino, and Andy reads the only question that was against the consensus on-air. WTH?! You were so lovely to Taylor, but that was not acknowledged. Adrienne accusing you of selling a story? Why on Earth would she believe a slimy "reporter" over you? They do not deserve to have you as a friend. I know you will continue to live your life with grace and class. Take care. oxo
I think it is BS that all the girls are attacking you for having a sense of humor. It really seems like a lot of the girls have talked badly about you behind your back, but I haven't seen you do that to them. I find it very unfair that they are bashing you because they took a joke as you being mean. If they are that insecure about themselves or their businesses, then they need to toughen up. I feel bad that they are being this way, but I don't think they have anything else to pick on you for so they are grasping at straws.
Lisa you and your family are lovely and the wedding was amazing! Just watch Part 1 of the Reunion and I hate how the ladies gang up on you. Adrienne is so incredibly petty - hang in there!!
I thought it was disgusting how you were attacked by the ladies, and I use the term loosely, on the renunion. I was also really surprised when Andy approached the issue about Pandora's bachelorette party. He made it sound as if the majority of viewers sided with Adrienne's ridiculous attitude towards the whole thing. Adrienne has no right to have any ill feelings towards that issue because it is none of her business and most importantly, your daughter's decision to have her event wherever she pleases. I felt like everyone was ganging up on you, including Andy. You couldn't win at all. They even found issue with any apologies you gave to them. Kyle and Adrienne were terrible to you and Kyle's comment about being friends with you is like playing chess was so incredibly hurtful. She is the one who has been two-faced to practically everyone and refuses to take any responsibility for her bad behavior. What is worse is, while she was attacking you, she also expected you to defend her bad behavior towards Brandi. The nerve of that woman. She is a mean girl at heart and obviously has no loyalty. I wish you and your family the best and hope that you surround yourself with positive people. I hope that you stay away from Kyle, Adrienne and Taylor because they will never be true friends to you or anyone else for that matter.
Lisa you are the best...and surrounded by enemies like Adirenne and Kyle...I appreciate your honesty and dignity. The others will do themselves in.
Congrats to you and your family on your daughter's wedding! Lovely...just lovely.
It is apparent that your fellow "housewifes" are NOT familiar with British humor! Perhaps you could suggest some "Monty Python" or "Benny Hill." LOL. You are, by far, the classiest bird in the group and I have much respect for you! There is no need to "bash" anyone...to those of us with any morals, values and common sense, it is so obvious who is on top (and I am not talking about financially...who really cares... I know I do not...if you have it...good for you). Keep being exactly who and what you are...a wife, a mother, a savy business woman, a respected member of your community and a friend. You are truly awesome! Om Blessings from Woodstock, New York
Aside from you and Adrienne not being able to get along, I love everything about you. I still think that is just a horrible example of strong, successful women not being able to get along. I truly hope the two of you will work on your friendship and gain a closeness that I don't think you could share with any of the other women. Anway,,,,, will you please bitch slap Dana in the near future? For your name to even come out of her mouth disgusts me. And for that wannabe to insult you in any way makes me livid. Blech!!! Make her go away!
Just wanted to express how much I adore you and your family. I really enjoy your sense of humor. I have a friend from 'across the pond' and her sense of humor is alot like yours....so I 'get it'. I felt so bad for the way Kyle and Adrienne came down on you...didn't really care for how they thought it was ok to do to you what they accuse you of doing even though I really don't believe you meant any harm what-so-ever. Also, my opinion is that Adrienne, as a friend, should have talked with you in private about all the heresay rather than wait and throw it out there on TV. I also think Adrienne should have done or said something to Bernie...how unprofessional. He is hired help and there to do a job..not talk about or comment on Adrienne's guests, family, friends, etc. As far as, the bachlorette party..what is the big deal?!? If Adrienne wanted to host the party then, in my opinion, she should have spoke up! Anyway, I hope you both are able to work it out as you are both wonderful women...but I have to admit, you're my fav. Thanks so much for opening up your family, your home, and life to us. Love ya
Love you..you have class.I felt you were attacked by the others..Dont know if this was for the show or not but if it wasnt it was completely uncalled for.Pandoras wedding was so very beautiful by the way.
Lisa, What an ambush! Thank God you moved away from such petty negativity...how else to describe Adrienne...oh ya my fav way to describe her, like a big f...king crackpot CAT... MEOuchW! Sooooooooo glad your eyes are finally opened to that attention seeking mean girl kyle... as Ken would say hate her, hate her. Brandi has elevated her game once again in my eyes..she is AWESOME, thank God she had your back last night....Seriously, you are to be commended for holding your own last night in spite of cruel kyle, & Adrienne's unwarranted pettiness... still The Viewers love you, can see right thru their Jealousy! Please,Keep your head held high..once again you out classed them all!
I enjoy your quick wit...I hope for the show you don't censor yourself too much...I love watching your family dynamic, how you and your husband relate with one another and that you are secure in your marriage.
The wedding was beautiful, I LOVE you furbabies and tell Adrienne to get a grip on life. Attacks like that are cowardly. She should be forced to say who told her you were selling stories to the tabloids. Why would she believe someone else over you? I felt so bad for you, how does one defend themselves against a total lie when the accuser will not name their sources? You held your ground and I was impressed of the way you handled the slanderous accusations.
Lisa, I don't usually like to put my real name when I comment, but this time, I felt it necessary to be known behind my words. I was completely shocked when Adrienne took offense to the Hoof joke - perhaps if it were Taylor, I'd understand her confusion of the joke, but I never would have imagined, your good friend, neighbor and sister-like relationship would have been offended. And, as far as Bernie making insults at you, I think when Adrienne found out about the rumor that was going on about supposedly you talking about him, I think she (Adrienne should have let you in on it to defend yourself). Instead, she listened and judged w/o discussing it with you. As far as Kyle goes, it's about time you find out exactly what kind of friend she is. That comment "you prey on week people" - THAT WAS RUDE COMING FROM A FRIEND. I think that Kyle should have told Taylor that both Kyle and you are good friends and if she have problems with you, pls don't expect you to go against her, but instead, Kyle did both - went against you and tried to act innocent. If Camille heard that you sell stories as well as Adrienne, that means that someone else is telling them something that is not true or your cover has been blown. One way or the other, I still love your characteristics and your grace and charm. Sometimes we do things for different reasons - we know you didn't do it for the money!!! Find some new friends who understand you better - or do like me and stay to yourself - I'm always a happy camper and so are you! Don't let Adrienne or Kyle change your personality. Neither of them even have one. Kyle loves herself too much and wants all the attention on her and Adrienne is reserved, by her own choice! Kudos for remaining a classy lady even though Kyle would have loved to do a screaming match with you because Kim (the weak one) was not there for her to scream at. Good luck to Sur! Hope to visit if I get to California again!
Last night was great! All those women attacking you and you handled it so well. Lovely wedding, lovely daughter, lovely shoes, and lovely self-deprecating humor. Send me some VanderPumps!
Lisa Sorry how things worked out for you at the reuinion. Looks like Adrienne and Kyle needed a punching bag to make things dramatic and you were it. Their behavior was outrageous! You didn't do or say anything wrong throughout the season. I thought Maloof hoof was funny since you came up with that after the scolding Adrienne gave you for not choosing her Casino to hold Pandora's bachelorette party. You have a right to hold parties whereever you want! You don't need her permission! By the way..I loved the lavender one shoulder side ruched dress you wore at Adrienne's party..so flattering on you. Also... I saw a movie recently with Leslie Nielson in it. I thought the actress was you. I looked up the cast and saw that it was Kelly LaBrock. It's funny how you look alike. Congratulations to you, Ken, Pandora and Jason.
Dear Lisa, I have to say you are a total hoot and I get your humour as an Englishman, but living in New York for the past 6 years, I become to realize that although we and our American cousins speak the same language that's as far it goes! Don’t get me wrong I adore the country and the people! But I did find last nights get together somewhat unfair on you – we do have a cheeky and wicked sense of humour, and sometimes what we say which is more less tongue is cheek taken completely out of context – hell its happened to me more than enough! Anyway – chin up, you have a million and one fans and all us gay fella’s love you!
Lisa, I thought Kyle and Adrianne were totally attacking you! I feel you and Camille are the only ones who do not talk about the other girls behind their backs. You are a caring person and please don't trust Kyle or Adrianne.
Lisa, Adrienne needs to look at her chef if she really wants to know who is selling her story to Radar Online, it would be the obvious one. Or maybe Taylor and Kyle have been spreading this tale after the staged dinner party where Russell got from a 'very' reliable source that Lisa sold a story...hmmm...could it be Adrienne?
I adore both You Ms Lisa and Ms Adrienne buy I do have to say I was appalled that Adrienne thinks its acceptable for her employee to say horrible bitchy things about a friend/ guest in her home. I am not as fortunate as you ladies, I am just a big ole cute gay critical care RN from Philly, my only employee is my cleaning lady/dog walker who has been with me for years, I adore her. If she treated or said anything nasty like Ms Bernie did on camera or in my presence about any of my friends or guests in my home I would have to let her go. I see that Bernie is friends with the fabulous Ru Paul. I adore miss Ru. While in college I worked as a bartender at a gay bar and a local drag queen gave me a great bit of advice that I still refer to today. She said "KNOW YOUR PLACE! & YOU WILL NEVER GO WRONG!" I am sure Ms Adrienne would never allow anyone of her employees at the Palm to behave that way towards any guest. I just shocked.
Part one of reunion is shamful due to jealous mean girls. Kyle, if you did anything more for atteniton you would be naked. Grown women dont do splits on table tops. What is wrong with you!! Own you stuff. Adriena needs to get a sense of humor!!!!! team Lisa, dont ever change.
Lisa, I was horrified last night with Kyle's accusations towards you. You've always been her biggest friend and defender and I can't believe the things she said to you! She contradicted herself: first she said she isn't intimidated by you, but later said that she always has to be very careful about what she says to you and that stupid Bobby Fisher comment. I cannot understand why she's so against you. Is it because you seem to be close to Brandi, whom she's so obviously jealous of? And you were right, she always has to be the center of attention. I thought you were extremely classy to her after her behavior on Pandora's engagement party. That wasn't her night and it was innappropriate.
Sorry Adrienne and Kyle ganged up on you like that, you really didn't deserve it. I expected that from Kyle, but definitely not from Adrienne. I guess she showed her true colors.
LOVED LOVED LOVED the way you handled the conflict with Adrianne on the reunion show. You showed women how to handle slanderous conjecture with finesse, aplomb and wisdom. We need more of your marvelous management techniques. Well done, darling :-)
I was about to add my complete support for you and disgust at Adrienne and Kyle[did they really think we would not see them for what they are}. When to my joy I have discovered the rest of the world agrees. I lost count of the positive reply's...hooray for you...clearly we all admire and support you.
WOW!!! Watched the clips and will watch full episode later. Of all the women in the entire HW stable, Lisa, I think you are the only one who understands, respects and DISPLAYS real friendship!!! I am saddened for you that you are not receiving the true friendship you deserve in return from these women. I PRAY that you have women friends outside of this show that return the friendship you deserve! Maybe Brandi and Camille stand a chance at earning your trust, I hope so, but you are a stronger, more forgiving woman than me if you can ever fully trust Kyle or Adrienne again. It's sad that they didn't treasure your friendship as they should have. You are better than them all!!!!!! I simpathize as a woman with trust issues who has been failed many times by women who don't deserve my friendhips. Life lessons. Much love your way!
Keep your chin up classy lady. You're in a group of jealous pit vipers with your cast members! Just know that we viewers can see the jealously on their part and see the wonderful, beautiful you!!! You're waaaaayyyy above those other women. Good luck.
Lisa, you didn't deserve the treatment you got last night. Maybe Adrienne and Kyle were jealous of your popularity last season and wanted to knock you down a notch.
You handled yourself beautifully and came off as very sincere. Adrienne, on the other hand, looked like a petty troublemaker.
You are such a beautiful woman, Lisa. I'm glad that you're defending yourself from those jealous vipers. C'mon, surely you must be able to see that they are not your friends. They may at times be friendly, but, dear beauty, they are not your friends. America believes you and loves you.
The Maloof "hoof" is a play on words. I thought these women were suppose to be smart--it's an obvious joke people!
Lisa, I did not like watching Kyle, Taylor, and Adrienne gang up on you on the reunion show. You did a great job holding your own. Did it ever occur to these other women that Radar is tempting them to sell stories by falsely claiming you already do it? Team Lisa and Brandi!
Lisa, I didn't like how the ladies ganged up on you during the reunion show. I can't believe that Adrienne is holding a grudge becausey you didn't use her hotel for Pandora's party. How stupid is that? They don't get your humor. I was surprised that Kyle also showed that she is not a friend ... but maybe I shouldn't be surprised as she is the "mean girl". You, Brandi and Camille should be the only people on the show next year.
I think you are funny! I don't think all your comments are meant to be malicious. I don't believe you deserved what Kyle did to you either on the reunion show. I believe you have been a loyal friend to her in season 1 and 2 and you didn't deserve what she said to you. You are a woman of grace and style.
I don't see the difference between the Maloof hoof and Camille saying Lisa had a poodle on her head.
I think it is so strange Adrienne and Camille believe a "reporter" from Radar Online says you sell stories to them. Ok, believe a friend or a "reporter"?
Taylor looks as if she is LOVING that Kyle and Adrienne attacking you.
My vote is to kick off Kim and Taylor and bring in Brandi! I think she can be brash, but is honest and funny.
I totally support Lisa after seeing the reunion last night. You are funny and classy. You have amazing grace and style and I cant wait to buy your book! xo
First of all, CONGRATS to your daughter's beautiful wedding!!! Many blessings to her and her husband!
I love your style and humor. You have always been my fave HW! You handle situations and confrontations so well with class and wit! Keep it up and don't change!
With many blessings and much love!!!
I absolutely and completely adore you. I love your dry humor and your blunt candor. It's just a shame that you got the brunt for calling someone out on their bad behavior. I'm also sorry that Adrienne didn't understand that you had other friends besides her, possibly friends that you were even closer to. Adrienne (surprisingly) needs to grow up.
now Taylor...she begs you to be her friend. You stood by her...she attacks with the other 2.
My advice. Stick with Brandi. You'll constantly will be calling each other out on your faults, but it will be a good laugh for both of you, and you'll always know where you stand with each other.
Ok, after watching last night's Reunion Part 1 show I felt compelled to come to the website today and say one thing: The quip Lisa made about the hoof vs. the pump was, in my opinion when I watched it happen, totally a cute and witty play on words between their names. I never once took it as a snide remark of any kind. I think that is what Lisa was trying to say last night but not sure if the girls got it. As a regular viewer of the general public, I thought it was cute. Take care, Lisa, looks like you got to be in the aim of fire last night, you did good! Now it's someone else's turn....
I was in shock at how the ladies ganged up on you last night. I didn't see it coming, well I kind of did from Kyle because she seems to have climbed on top of the ivory tower this season but I didn't expect it from Adrienne. How disappointing. No one gets your humor, and they don't get Brandi's either. You were laughing when you made the Maloof Hoof comment, so how could anyone take that seriously? You didn't say it with anger or malice at all. I thought it was pretty witty! I think Adrienne is intimidated by you. You managed to remain classy through everything that happened this season and I applaud you for it. I can't believe Adrienne's baseless attacks on your character, where did that come from? You don't have to prove anything to anyone, your life and your success speaks for itself. She seemed terrified about something from her life getting leaked, god knows what it is but it's no excuse to attack you over it. If you have to fear leaks to the press THAT badly then you are probably doing things you shouldn't be. I heard the rumor you may get your own show and I want you to know that my husband and I will be watching if you do! I'd rather watch you and Giggy doing anything rather than watch the catty ladies on this show! The only exceptions are Brandi and Camille of course, they're fun and don't take themselves seriously like everyone else does.
Lisa, this series is solely yours. I vote for the Lisa & Jiggy everafter show. Seriously,the hoof comment is and was very tongue and cheek- which is why so many of us adore you! Love that dry, wisecracking sense of humor-dont you dare change a thing- or I will change the channel permanently! The sad part was watching Adrienne stand by grinning while her chef called you "the british bitch across the street" while the cameras rolled. Then he acted so sweet and kind to you when he walked into SUR. When you Lisa, shooed the woman who made Brandi uncomfortable away from SUR, that was a true friend. For Adrienne to believe others and not you, is not a friend. Kyle saying you prey on the weak, also not a friend. You should distance yourself from those girls. Bravo would be wise to give you your own show. Keep giving them hell LIsa-and we will keep watching! Love love love and shi shi shi!
You proved once again you are the classiest one of this group! Love Brandi too! Jealousy is very ugly.
