It's Adrienne's World

Brandi comments on Adrienne's behavior at Kim and Kyle's parties -- and defends Taylor.

Oh boy where to start. First let me apologize for missing my blog last week, I have been on a whirlwind press tour for my new book Drinking and Tweeting and other Brandi Blunders (shameless plug)and have barely had time to sleep, let alone do anything else.

Kim has a new nose revealing party, and I have to say I think she looks really really great. Attending Kim's nose reveal party was her plastic surgeon, Dr.Gregorios who did her nose job. Adrienne attended this party and decided to, on multiple occasions, say it was OK but Paul could have done a better job. This is an insult to not just to the doctor but also to Kim. I found Adrienne's comments to be in extremely poor taste. She then later tried to poorly recover from her rude comments.

Kyle arrives to the nose party with Kennedy and Portia and I can honestly say Kennedy looked happier then I have ever seen her look.

OK so here it goes and don't be shocked but I don't think the women were very fair to Taylor in this episode. Yes, Taylor is a mess drinking too much and in need of serious support. Taylor has been through a lot and is clearly and emotional roller coaster and making rash decisions. When a anyone goes through a hard time in life (divorce, deaths, etc.), it's their friends and family they should be able to lean on and count on for support.

Taylor like myself does not have family in southern California, so during a very dark depressing couple of years of not being in control and questionable behavior it was my friends who stepped in and held me up when all I wanted to do was fall down. My friends had play dates with the boys and sleepovers with my children when I felt I couldn't cope. I'm just saying sometimes we need to lean on people. Also I don't think we are getting the full story here. . .did Kyle pick up Kennedy from the house, or school? Clearly there was a plan to meet at the party but what was discussed before etc.

Also we all knew exactly who Taylor was dating at the time because it was all over the press. I don't know why but I feel like their is more to this scenario then we all know.

Regardless it's definitely not party chatter or mean girl gossip. Why on earth is this a conversation being had with Adrienne, Faye, and Marisa -- who said herself she doesn't even know Taylor? I'm not sure why I feel this way, but I just feel like some of these women get off when others -- even their BFs and those less fortunate than themselves -- fail. I mean would you rather have Kennedy with tipsy Taylor right now or having fun with Portia?

Moving on. . .The white party! Kyle's white party is the first time I will be seeing Paul and Adrienne since our big blow up. In the car on the way to the party, Paul and Adrienne have a confusing conversation about speaking to their lawyer or not speaking to him. . .Plain and simple there was a threat of lawsuit, which required me to hire a lawyer to defend myself. The other funny thing about their car ride over is that Adrienne said I didn't have money for anything but plastic surgery. . . Wow! The two surgeries I did have (my boobs and my po-po done) were both on my ex-husbands dime. Now, if anyone shouldn't be talking plastic surgery it's Adrienne because clearly she has had more then all of us combined and is either getting it for free or at a discounted rate, which shows in the work.

Once at the party Adrienne and Lisa collide and during their hellos Adrienne gets her body makeup on Lisa. Lisa brings up the fact that on two separate occasions Adrienne has ruined her furniture. Rather then apologize or offer to reimburse Lisa for ruining her furniture, she just shrugs it off as any rich entitled person without a conscience would. It's Adriennes world and we are all just lucky to be there.

I arrive with two long time friends and am chewing my gum HARD, like a truck driver a sign of my ever present and growing anxiety. I just want this all to be done.

I printed out all the email exchanges and tweets between Berni, myself and our lawyers and even brought copies of my bills. During our conversation they admit to hiring a lawyer to deal with me because they want to control what comes out of my mouth. I show Paul some of the Facebook, email, and tweets that Bernie put out to the public about me and my children and he says he will fire Bernie. Everyone joins in the conversation and Ken lets Paul have it. Sooo sexy!

My relationship with Ken and Lisa is just simply that they feel like family to me. I jokingly flirt with Ken because Lisa is a secure woman and doesn't mind and that is it. Now back to the dance floor to find my real boyfriend.

Yolanda is so smart to keep skipping these parties!

Lisa V.: How Many Scenarios Can We Excuse?

Lisa Vanderpump tries to make sense of what happened at the reunion and gives us an update on her life since. 

And here we have it...the final episode as the curtain drops on Season 5, the last part of this intriguing trilogy...

Firstly, it is almost too complicated to dissect, but let's try to have a better understanding of the complicated dynamic that materialized this season...

I think upon reflection, it has been pretty obvious after months of filming the intent of some to insert themselves into an already fractious situation. Kim obviously felt bolstered by BG, much to her detriment, as she became a victim of her own volatility. I doubt since filming has wrapped whether there has been much interaction between BG and Kim. It would surprise me greatly if this supposedly close relationship is still flourishing.

What concerned me this season was the manipulative attempt by BG to undermine Kyle and to validate any negativity that Kim was feeling.

There's not a lot to say that hasn't been said, really, but what concerned me this season was the manipulative attempt by BG to undermine Kyle and to validate any negativity that Kim was feeling, salaciously stating what a wonderful friend she was and how totally unsupportive Kyle has been. I don't believe the years of dealing with a sibling struggling with alcoholism, supporting financially when needed, should be ignored--also the emotional toll it must have taken on the family. This is a family that has many offsprings who love each other dearly, and that should be paramount. BG has no idea of any history, just a few short months under the glare of reality television.

Also in this final segment, it baffles me once again as to the arrogance as to state what is off limits. How many scenarios can we excuse? Dogs? Children? House? Sobriety? Our business became your business when we entered into your living room. We should strive for transparency, and we should deal with consequences as we profit from the benefits.

I have grown close to Lisa and Eileen and enjoyed them immensely, not always understanding Lisa's actions, but always believing it came from a place of concern, even if sometimes, like in regard to the text she sent, it was a little impulsive. Her anger got the better of her, and for that, I believe she was sorry. I am not making excuses for her, but I am resolute in the belief that provocation sometimes creates a day of reckoning.

My suggestion of putting a band aid on a situation is one of experience. Sometimes we reach for the unreachable, especially when it comes to relationships. Furthermore, we have to accept that idyllic relationships are not always obtainable, but what we should not accept is that the whole family infrastructure, which can be so delicate, would possibly be fractured--weddings missed, birthdays ignored, and all of life's moments punctuated, documented with regret.

So that is what I hope for this season, that the devious trifling is never rewarded by the success in the breakdown of any relationship. Last year, as I sat on my own, aghast at what had transpired, I hoped for a clearer picture, and now I have one, as I think you all do.

Snippets of downtime that have been aired this reunion--cups of tea requests, diarrhea jokes, pussy to the bathroom jokes, didn't know a Flex but definitely knew a Ford--are a great way of also demonstrating that there are giggles in the face of adversity.

Lastly, I would like to say a huge thank you to all of you, who have sent messages of love and well wishes in what has proved to be a trying week. The surgery has been a reminder of how sometimes the indomitable support of those close to you is so valuable, and I appreciate it tremendously. My children by my side, friends, and family are the icing on the cake. Thank you to you all. Ken is doing much better and is well on the way to full recovery.

I have appreciated your comments and enjoyed interacting with you.

Much love as always, 

Lisa
