Lisa R Reflects on That Bittersweet Episode

What Happens in Vegas

Lisa laments the kerfuffle over her Vegas plans and Adrienne's shoes.

Oh it seems like the only time there seems to be any fun lately is when I am planning my daughter's wedding! The gorgeous little white boxes have been chosen. The caterers are amazing, and I am well aware they can produce an excellent culinary adventure, Kevin Lee is going to drive me to distraction slowly but surely. . .but I persevere, assured that he will create a wedding like no other. Watch this space.

I have to address the situation with Russell and Taylor. Even though I was not a fan of Russell at the time because of the information that was given to me by Taylor, I find it truly heartbreaking to witness their struggles in their relationship, that were obviously so difficult. I, contrary to what many of you have proclaimed, am happy that I could actually support Taylor in the difficult time she was going through. It is truly hard for us all to watch now. My heart goes out to Taylor and their family.

On a lighter note, the next day, Mohammed came over and off we go to Adrienne's fashion show. As we enter the house, Adrienne summons me to have a word with her. I was a little taken aback as we had only just arrived and had no idea of what was about to transpire. Apparently she was miffed that Pandora had decided to hold her bachelorette party at our old family friend Robert Earl’s venue, Planet Hollywood. Robert loves her and had no intention of promoting the hotel. I mean, how dare my daughter choose what she wants? She should be supporting her mother's neighbor’s business! I seriously couldn't understand this. It was the first I knew of her being upset. Jason had had his bachelor party a couple of weeks before, hosted by our friend, and Pandora was going to do the same. It was all arranged. I wasn't going and hadn't been involved in the arrangements. It seems like a dangerous slope to venture into. I knew nothing., I didn't want to even really hear the tales afterwards, as I think there are certain times and adventures one doesn't need their mother to witness, and I had assured Pandora this was one of them.

Kyle told me we all had to go. She wanted to go with me. I disagreed, I had no intention of seeing my daughter doing whatever a whole bevy of young girls do in Vegas. It was time for them. I would certainly organize her engagement, her shower, her wedding, but in this instance, she was on her own!

Somehow, to cut a long story short, I was roped into this trip, and obviously, now you, the viewer, will get to witness it, so everything changes. What was to be Pandora's trip became a major production, and I was suddenly in trouble for it. I resent the fact that suddenly I am to blame, it is a huge deal to entertain 14 people, and I certainly would never dream of asking anybody to do that. Robert wanted to comp the whole weekend as his gift to Pandora, Why do I feel I have to constantly justify mine and my daughter’s actions?

When Adrienne and Paul are having dinner at a neighboring restaurant, it wouldn't even enter my mind to question them! It seems as if some people are looking for a problem. . .

Anyway, I tried to then focus on what looked like a spectacular evening -- the launch of Adrienne's shoes, which were nowhere to be seen!

I joked about the "Vanderpump" being on its way and the Maloof hoof as a bit of a laugh, not to be taken seriously. In all honesty, the pump was something I had done for fun with Ryan Haber, not like Adrienne’s major shoe line, which she has been passionate about, and I wish her every success.

So there we have it. Once again a pleasant evening was marred by a really petty matter. I am losing patience with this constant need for altercations when we all have busy lives. I know in the last four months, I ran Villa Blanca, and opened, created, and designed the new Sur Lounge, which was a huge undertaking. I have no designer or assistant because I chose not to. I finished my book, wrote for my magazine, did our weekly charity work, planned my daughter's wedding, moved houses, and am, quite frankly, too exhausted to dwell on things that aren't important, So as I leave you, the viewer, to contemplate the multi-faceted and extremely complicated dynamics, between us women, I close off now unsure of whether, after so many trials and tribulations lately, I just might be losing my grip on reality. . .

Love always, Lisa

Kyle: I Have Never Had Anyone Put a Hand on Me

Kyle explains what worried her most the night of the poker party.

Wow, this is a difficult blog to write. This was a horrible night made all the worse by Brandi's behavior. When I walked outside, I wanted to talk to my sister without anyone else around. I tried to walk Kim away from the cameras, as well as Brandi. Brandi was relentless. I asked her over and over again to leave us alone and let me speak with my sister privately. As Kim and I were standing by the garage trying to speak in private, Brandi grabbed both of my wrists and would not let go. I was shocked. I have never had anyone put a hand on me and honestly started to feel scared. I don't want to be overly dramatic about the situation, but Brandi is 5'10" and I am 5'2", and at this point I did not know what she was capable of, especially because she was intoxicated and aggressive.


I took off my shoes, so I could get out of there as quickly as possible. I want to say that while the physical part of this evening was very upsetting, it paled in comparison to my concern for my sister. What Brandi is so clearly trying to do to my relationship with my sister is what was upsetting me the most. We had worked so hard on our relationship and had come so far, and to see this happening had me overcome with emotion.

I just hope that Kim can see what we all saw so clearly...that Brandi's actions speak louder than any of her venomous lies.

Kyle Richards

Brandi keeps saying I'm jealous of how close they are and how she's been there for Kim. I never realized they were as close as Brandi claims, and I never knew Brandi to be there for Kim other than taking that one call that she talked about in her interview. Brandi did call me to say that Kim had called her at 2 AM in the morning. She asked me to please not repeat it, and I never did. But she went on camera letting everyone know about it. Why would she repeat that? I also never said "That's not my problem, that's just Kim." I had my hands tied as I was asked to please not repeat that this information was shared with me . Other than Brandi telling me about this one call, I have never gotten any late night calls or any signs of my sister not being OK or in danger in any way. If there was something I should have been there for, I certainly had no idea. Perhaps my sister chose not to share with me and felt comfortable sharing with Brandi. I cannot be there for something I am unaware of. If I knew of something that Kim needed me for, I would be there as I always have. There are years of history there that Brandi is not privy to, and I will never share, no matter how many hurtful lies she hurls my way.
When I watch Brandi with Kim, I see someone who is taking advantage of my sister at her most vulnerable. It's frustrating, worrisome, and hurtful that my sister cannot see this. Why does Brandi want Kim to feel that she is the only one there for her? We come from a big family that my sister has plenty of support from. People who genuinely love and care for her. Not to mention that Kim has four adult children that love and support their mom.
As I walked away from this night, I knew I would never be friends with Brandi and was scared of just how much damage she had done to my relationship with Kim. I just hope that Kim can see what we all saw so clearly...that Brandi's actions speak louder than any of her venomous lies.
Thanks for watching.
XO,
Kyle
