The Greatest Insult

Lisa attempts to make sense of the many hurdles at her Sur opening.

Well Hello.

Here we are again touching down in the middle of my construction zone -- that began Sur Lounge. We always have a series of soft openings to iron out the teething problems, of which there were many. This was the first, mainly for friends and no press, just a small gathering to see if all the kinks can be ironed out. . .

I don't know if it is my inability to schedule things properly, but it's always right down to the wire! I am thrilled with the venue. Visually you will just have to come and see for yourselves -- the garden and the private dining room (none of which you saw) are almost ethereal, and I am so proud of its success.

Anyway, that evening, there was a smorgasbord of glitches and the event was filled with so many complications. I am going to have to gloss over some. I felt like a horse in a hurdle race. . .

Firstly Scheana alerted me to the fact that she had been involved with Brandi's ex-husband whilst she was married to him. I didn't know the details, but I didn't have to. Although I didn't know Brandi very well, she was my guest and I wanted her to feel at ease so Scheana had to go. She could work at the restaurant next door. . .OK, one down.

The next problem: Cedric turned up unannounced and definitely uninvited -- the nerve of him after all this time, after what he had done to us as a family. He wasn't welcome and never will be. I stated to him "I don't wish you any harm. . .it's worse than that. I don't wish you anything at all." That is it in a nutshell. Endless derogatory stories have been told by him and printed in the tabloids, to which I have never responded. You the viewer know the truth and I will not lower myself to his level and engage in a slanging match. He has continually endeavored to worm his way back on RHOBH, with no luck (after his disappointment in not having his much anticipated success). There's no anger anymore. I have moved on. And always remember -- indifference is really the greatest insult of all.

I found the footage of Kim very hard to watch. I felt for Kyle as she once more tried to relay her frustrations to her sister, how it was far more apparent to her that Kim was manifesting a happiness with this man Kyle had so much contempt for. We see clearly that Kim was behaving strangely, rambling almost incoherently, and it was a conversation that at that point seemed almost redundant. I know whatever choices Kim makes in the future she will have the support of a family who love her.

Finally, when Taylor arrived it was obvious to me that make-up was covering some bruising by her eye. I felt saddened as she tried to explain the intricacies of her marriage. I disagreed that it was up to her to apologize at that moment. It's been an arduous journey that none of us could have ever predicted the tragic outcome of, and I don't know that any of us will ever understand what really transpired between them. But I know as the old adage says, "What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger."

It is almost time to close the door on this chapter, as we are almost at the finishing line on what has been a tumultuous season. I value your comments, your love and support. Next week you will see as our dreams come to fruition -- my beauty's wedding.

Thank you for watching
Love always, Lisa

Brandi: I Don't Enjoy Anger or Grudges

Brandi explains why she's ready to move on, as long as it doesn't mean kissing a**.

I’m back in L.A. after a wonderful trip to visit my family. I’d like to thank everyone for their support regarding my father’s health. Dad is back home and on his way to what will be a slow and long recovery, but he is getting better and that’s all that matters. I’m so grateful I was able to hang with my boys and family and just kick back, cook, watch my nieces and boys play, and relax.

So tonight’s show is pretty drama-free for me, which is great, because I’m in a happy place and sometimes watching old drama unfold can set me back a little, emotionally. And can anyone believe that we are on episode six, and I haven’t hit the sauce yet? Don’t worry, it's coming. It's not fun to be sober all of the time.

Lisa Rinna introduced her parents and her Medford, Oregon hometown to the audience tonight. I love to see where people are from. It was a heartfelt moment where she shared the regret of visiting her childhood home for the last time and the guilt of living far away from her aging parents. It was very moving watching Lisa R. trying to instill the gravity of the situation of aging, illness, and finality of life to her teenaged daughters. After the normal teenage resistance faded, they realized it was a serious trip, and I’m glad she insisted her girls accompany her on it. I have to add that after seeing Lois Rinna, I can see where Lisa’s got her eyes from, and Frank Rinna’s paintings are amazing. I want one.

Kyle’s BBQ was next with everyone having a pretty good time. It was a very nice party. Yo was looking perfect as always. Meeting Eileen was fun and talking about Days was fun, too. Yes, I was a fan back in the day. Once we sat down, Kim’s old acting stories about faking tennis on Magnum, P.I. were the best. Eileen’s husband, Vince, is really nice and had great stories, too. He was on a lot of TV shows, like Kim. Kim and Vince kept the laughs going.

It was nice to see Mauricio and hear about another vacation. He is always cool and relaxed, and it’s nice to see him doing so well. Anyway, when all is said and done, we all saw who the true star of the BBQ was…Yolanda’s sandals. Want!

Moving forward doesn’t involve me constantly kissing a**.

Brandi Glanville

Lisa V. and Ken were there, and despite the awkwardness, it was really nice to see them again. You could probably tell how uncomfortable I was feeling. You can also see, I tried. Hard. It was a bit awkward, but I did try my best to put the past behind us. Obviously this is going to take some time! Kyle said it best: “Lisa likes to hold on to grudges.” Again, Kyle said that, not me!

I don’t enjoy power plays, holding on to anger or grudges. I prefer peace, apologies, amends, and moving on. Life is hard enough without making it harder. Maybe relationships change but definitely trying for a peaceful coexistence is what I'm striving for at this point in my life. That said, moving forward doesn’t involve me constantly kissing a**. I won’t do that. Relationships have to be equal, right?

So, until next week, I hope all of you come watch my housewarming party. You’re all invited, and there’s going to be plenty of wine--my own personal label, actually (not that we have a name, yet)!

Happy holidays, peace, love, joy, and health to you and all your loved ones!

XOXO,

Brandi
