Lisa R Reflects on That Bittersweet Episode

You Can Call Me Pam

Episode 6: Kim, Kyle, and Taylor? Bravotv.com's Associate Editor ponders the perfect game night team -- and dinner menu.

It's game night in Beverly Hills, pals. I hope you brought your intimate knowledge of the friends and former flames of the Richards sisters, because the only clues we're giving are relevant to Kim’s dating life. So come along. I've got a plate full of meringues, and I promise not to hide your crutches. Let's play, "Top 3 Moments of This Episode" Pyramid.

Love, Vanderpump-Style
Before we get to the battle royale, let's address the Lisa Vanderpump portions of this episode that warmed the cold cockles of my heart. First, we open with Lisa making potato salad, which, really? I didn't know British people ate potato salad, let alone did I imagine Lisa would ever eat something so mayonnaise-based. Also, she has the largest pepper grinder in the world. It's appropriately sized for giants to grind seasoning with. I think it's three times the size of Giggy. Anyway, while Ken works the half-tuck and sips coffee, young Maximus drops a bomb -- he loves his girlfriend. Lisa's hyper-interested. Who is this woman who has stolen his heart away?

There's no time to address though because another child proves to be deep in love! Lisa's hosting a dinner party for Pandora and Jason and Jason's fam after their big trip to New York City. Also in attendance – Kim Richards' former suitor, Martin, who was unfortunately not a clue at game night. After Lisa takes a seat in her enormous chair, Jason stands up to make another one of his patented "I love Pandora"-speeches, only to reveal what we've been waiting for since the season premiere -– it's finally not a fake proposal!

Lisa is verklempt. Ken has nothing to say, adorably. If you paid attention in the preview you caught that the inspiration for Franck Eggelhoffer from the Father of the Bride is planning these nuptials. Buckle up, folks, this is going to be exactly the sort of understated affair Lisa is known for (similar to her not-too-large-at-all chair she sat in at dinner).

Pam? Dana!
After Dana and Taylor make some snacks while wearing aprons (price not disclosed), the ladies gather for game night at the Wilkey abode. Things are all set -- the Dominoes food towers are lined up carefully, Dana's wearing Valentino shorts, the furniture has been moved conveniently out of the way. And then the guests start pouring in. Brandi hobbles in to make awkward conversation with Kyle. Camille and Taylor arrive to save Kyle and Brandi from certain turmoil.

But where's Kim?

No worries, -- she's here just in time to utter the best/most confused line of the season (thus far): "Pam. Dana?"

You can't blame the woman. She tells us roughly a hundred times this episode how little she likes new people (remember she already told us she also does not like new restaurants). How can she be expected to keep it all straight? Plus, calling Dana 'Pam" is their thing now. So excuse her if she needs to fix her makeup in the bathroom a hundred times while drinking her McCafe out of a real glass. That's just how this night is going to be.

And now a breadstick break. . .

I’m really hungry. . .

Kim, Kyle, and Taylor?
Now that we've eaten, er, something, and learned to never take liquid liner out with us (thanks, Kyle!) the games can really get going. Here are a couple of important things we learned over the course of game night.

1. If you don't like the team you’ve been assigned, just blurt out the names of the people you'd rather be paired with -- Dana: "Kyle, Kim, and Brandi." Kim: "Kim, Kyle, and Taylor?" I don't understand how this didn't work for her. . .
2. Don't play with sisters, let alone sisters that were child actresses together. Unless Brandi had memorized their IMDb pages beforehand, she had zero chance of knowing even slightly what those clues meant.
3. Winston Churchill is not black, despite Brandi's beliefs.
4. Do not mess with Kim Richards. She will hide your crutches. Also, Kyle's tone when saying "That's the Kim I know," seemed to imply that maybe she's pulled this sort of tricky maneuver before, so maybe don't cross Kim Richards when you have some sort of walking aide she could hide.
5. Do not stand up and tell someone "you first" pointedly. It is not going to go well. . .

Yup, that happened.

Remember when Adrienne and Brandi went to lunch and Adrienne was like, "Let's show people your fun side Brandi"? This wasn't it. Sure, this side might be fun for the viewers at home, but the 'Wives don't seem amused. Bonus points to Camille for right off the bat saying that Brandi does not know what she's getting into. And neither do we, because the fight won't finish up until next week.

Until then, leave your guesses for who Brandi thought Winston Churchill was in the comments.

Lisa V.: I Tried to Warn Kyle

Lisa V. tells us what she held back during her lunch with Kyle at Villa Blanca and why she's worried about Kim and Brandi's friendship.

Hello, as I muddle through this blog doused with medicines, fighting the flu, trying to make sense of this nonsensical situation...
So, as we reenter the poker party, I am sooo thankful that I wasn't there. I do not do well with altercations whilst others seem to thrive on it.
There are so many different aspects to this scenario that are upsetting: the volatility, the disloyalty, Kyle's frustration at trying to corner her sister and talk some sense into her but being intercepted by Brandi...Lisa and Eileen just astounded as they desperately try to keep the peace...
I don't understand the need for Brandi to expose the fact that Kim has called her in the middle of the night several times and she is worried about her. What are we intimating? Wouldn't a loyal friend keep quiet on matters as such?


As she drives a greater wedge between the two sisters, Kim in her naïveté seems to relish the fact that both women are so concerned over her, wailing, "The problem is they both love me" is almost pitiful, and I felt sorry to see her confusion as she tried to placate both parties. What worries me, apart from the emotional turmoil, is that the aggression is unacceptable, and as I see Brandi holding Kyle's arms--the sheer anger that is a result of the alcohol once more--it's just all too much. This excuse that keeps being used that Brandi has no filter is wearing very thin...This is not an example of someone with no filter, this an example of a person that needs to realign her priorities and boundaries. It's everything. The crass comments about Eileen's house were uncalled for as she had the grace to even entertain her, invite her into her house, which is warm and cosy with a plethora of family pictures decorating the walls that indicate happy relationships. Maybe that is what she finds creepy. Anyway, I thought it was generous after being almost assaulted by having a glass of wine hurled in her face that the invitation was extended at all.
Brandi makes many rash statements, such as "They hate each other" and "Kyle is never there to support her sister." Let us cast our minds back to last week...Kyle went to the bathroom, Kim followed her, Kyle whispered to her she was worried, covering her mic to protect her sister...She also knows what is going on with her sister, but in order to PROTECT her sister, she denies it on the ride home with Lisa...
How can you equate this new friendship that started with the "slut pig" comment and "I don't do crystal meth in the bathroom, bitch" just a couple of years ago and only recently cemented to that of a sibling who has spent forty-four years at her side? The tumultuous path that these two have experienced, of which I am sure if alcoholism is involved, has not been an easy one. One that has been fraught with tears of disappointment, anger, and sometimes joy as she succeeded in her fight for sobriety.
We will see what transpires in this new friendship as we ride the wave of this complicated season, we will see the levels of loyalty that is given to this "new" friendship. There is so much I have been privy to and, although not so close with many involved, I would not expose anyone if it was to their detriment.
Anyway, moving on to happier times, I loved seeing the return of Rumpy. We waited patiently, all the little furry people lined up waiting to see the transformation from the naughty dog we sent away into a well behaved young retriever. Well we are still dealing with an overexcited young dog, but now he has a partner in crime, he seems more fulfilled. We have had many big dogs over the years but none quite as mischievous as Sir Rumpy Pumpy. Anyway, we kept Avery, and I have to say it is a complete success.

Eileen comes to collect me on the way to Lisa's. She makes it past Hanky Panky--always a good thing! She tries to explain, but I was none the wiser as to the intensity of the scenario that went down. Never heard of nuggs either...love her, though.
Lisa threw a rather lovely jewelry event. No darling, some of us do have big fat f---ing diamonds as you say, but my thirst for costume jewelry is unquenchable as you have seen my collection in my closet! I admired Eileen as she tries to reason with somebody unreasonable! Desperately trying to explain to Brandi what is not quite acceptable...good luck with that. I tried the mothering thing, and I was criticized for that.
When Kyle and I went to Villa Blanca, I am reticent to say what I would love to. If you remember in one of the early episode of this season as I witnessed the bond between Brandi and her, I stated, "I will not get involved, she will discover it soon enough..." But if I could, it would go something like this: "See? Now do you see how I felt? You think I hold a grudge more than Giggy and should forgive her? You are experiencing a minuscule amount of what that woman put me through!"
But somehow it is better left unsaid, as I believe her personal experience will resonate far more than any warning I could issue, but I did voice my concern over the fragility of Kim, not knowing that she could sustain the same disloyalty I have endured. Kim has definitely had a lot to deal with, and we all wish her success in her quest for sobriety...abso-bloody-lutely.
Oh well, now I have to sign off. I hope everybody stays safe on the East Coast, and as always, I thank you for watching...
Love always, Lisa.
