So we bid farewell to gay Paris. . .
Apart from a few challenging moments the trip was a huge success but I still felt a certain amount of anxiety over Kim. On the boat trip she seemed in a much better frame of mind. All was explained later when we returned. I am the wrong person to ascertain how much medication is too much, but I know that if ever I was in that position again I would still question her or gently probe as to whether she was OK.
As I viewed the footage of our final moments in Paris traveling down the Seine, it was a gentle reminder that life passes by so rapidly, sometimes leaving little time for the moments that we should cherish. I knew after 30 years that I needed to make a decision as to whether we would have a celebration and renew our vows. I resisted five years ago on our 25, and now it was time to celebrate.
Kevin Lee is an unusual character to say the least, but this man can deliver. He will create an event that is always a visual feast, and, although he appears a little eccentric, he is somebody I enjoy working with. So a party in the garden is what we decided.
It is obvious Brandi is after Lisa'a husband, that is why she is befriending Lisa. Cedric loved living that lifestyle....as any layman person probably would....beware of Brandi. She could be a snake with poisonous venom.
Lisa you are my favorite on the show you are classy and I love your sense of humor.
Im not a fan of Brandi she says she doesnt talk behind her friends backs technically thats true because if called on it she will say it to your face but she talks more crap than all of the housewives combined hateful vulgar stuff that is said for its shock value and that is not classy at all and I have seen you cringe more than once with her. I was just watching the reunion and you said "I trust Brandi with my life" I hope that you have someone else pointing out this fact didnt you feel that way with Cedric once. Brandi and Cedric were friends before she came on the show. She knows how to work you the same as Cedric did because you are such a good hearted person. I think you are a rung on Brandi's ladder and trusting her with your life is a big gamble. Unless there is side to her that is not on TV cant imagine what could make up for her bad manners and foul mouth.
Advice to dana......better to be silent and thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt !!!!!
Where do you get the patience or energy to deal with Kyle. She does not appear to be a true friend to anyone. So I wouldn't take it personally. Get to the EAST COAST? Call and my family will show you a pleasant calm drama free time. Good luck in all you do.
Lisa, thank you for putting that shady snake Faye in her place. Your comment "Check Mate" was priceless. I am sorry that "The Hoof" had so little consideration and lack of manners that she brought drama to your house on such an incredibly special day. I loved seeing your vow renewals, it was a real tearjerker. I am very happy for you! You look unbelievable after 30 years of being married. BRAVO!!!
You are the best of the best. After watching Kyle, and everything that was revealed on the reunion, part one, everything made sense.. I used to like Kyle.. I agree, Kyle jumps from woman to woman depending on what personal issues are going on and now, I do believe she kisses butt to those who can further Mauricios business.. Makes sense.. I remember season 1 when Kyle had to tell Mauricio that "the Grammar" would not be doing business with Mauricio again.. Kyle, outwardly said, she would try to fix it.. She did.. During reunion, in one breath she is saying she does not operate that way but clearly she does.. First, during this season, she acts as if Paul and Adrienne are her closest friends.. During reunion, she said they are not really that close.. Which one is it.. Maybe after business transactions were completed, Kyle and Mauricio are not "so close" any more.. How discusting.. The fact she would bring that horrid woman, Faye, to your party and NOT stand up for you when Faye decided to attack you in your own home, at such a beautiful occasion (love Ken) is unforgivable, in my eyes.. Faye Resnick is an awful woman.. I don't care if she is a Godmother or whatever to Kyles children..The way she acted a your party was awful. The fact that Kyle let that happen and did not defend you is ...... HORRIBLE... I love you Lisa.. Ken is wonderful.. Brandy is a true friend....
You're entitled to your own opinion, but Lisa is a manipulative and cold woman. Are you kidding me? Kyle is the most real and genuine woman of the bunch. She doesnt trashtalk her friends like Lisa and Brandi. "Brandi is a true friend"? Of course she is a true friend to Lisa - Brandi with no money, Lisa with plenty. Not so hard to do the math, is it? Brandi is a provocative bitch who thinks that its okay to say whatever is on her mind without taking the consequenses. I dont understand for one second how Kyle even want to be friends with those disgusting women.
Lisa, You are a wonderful, caring person! That said, I think you tend to choose friends (on show) a little too quickly, getting hurt in the long run. You & Kyle have a long term friendship and I think u need to think long & hard before jumping to Team Brandi! I have really good people instincts & something about her just turns up my basic animal instinct to run in the other direction, if u no what I mean....just saying....hate to see you regret...I really like u!,,
thank you for being on the show and showing the other woman how things are done. adrienne faye kyle, all trouble makers behind the senes. but you have class and carry yourself like a lady should yolanda fits the same mold. good luck in your ventures and remember a good friend always has your back, yours in brandi
Thanks so much for being on the show you bring class to the ladies and all the "problems" they create Now that Adrienne has left , Faye can take the next train to nowhere,and kyle can came off her pedi"best stal. and get back to normal being. you, yolanda, and brandi are the "best friends" who have each others back no exceptions
Adrienne should have said I am sorry for for the staining of your chair and please Lisa send me the bill.
I agree...how oblivious of her!!!!She could afforg to buy her a brand new chair..perhaps she's tight w/ her $$$$??!!
I wanted to take a moment and say thank you Lisa for inviting me to have a seat (Kens seat) at your table at SUR in December. After I rudely came over to your party and introduced myself. It was my friends xmas party and i told him I really wanted to eat at SUR, so we jumped in the limo from long beach and came up. Loved everything about it, especially meeting you, Ken and your son. He was so very polite to us and spent some nice time chatting with us (he was the one that told me you would be okay with me saying hello)....lovely family!
It was only after we ordered our meal from our waitress (Stassi), that our frustration grew, Only 8 meals arrived to our 10 person party. And, it wasn't until after the 8 of us FINISHED our meals that the other two got served. Stassi, did take blame for forgetting to log in the last two meals, and brought us one desert for her mistake. Nice jesture, but felt like she could have put a rush on the pending two orders she forgot to place. Maybe too much focus on boyfriend problemsfor how great she is and not her customers , ;-0
Food great, place great, Stassi, not so great!
tI was a pleasure meeting you and your family....very classy!
I watched the scene with Dana and Taylor in it's entirety - and yes, I agee Dana was very inappropriate. She waas smashed and wallowing. Her sexual comments were shocking. But if you were listening careful - she was also warning Taylor about phony people , backstabers and telling her not to trust. I agree 100% with all of the of others that made comments mentioning that Dana needs a really good friend and lots of support right now. But I do not agree that person should be Brandi. Dana respects Brandi Less than she respects herself...
Someone suggested that Brandi would be good for Dana, becasue of their similiar situations (with how badly their ex's have treated them). This would be a major mistake, because I believe Brandi has her own issues to conquer. Brandi is no super hero...brandi is a very childish woman that has a lot of growing up to do... she is being mentored now and led around in a better circle now too with Lisa and Yolanda ...but her true charater will be hard even for them to difuse. The one thing I agree that Faye has said ... Brandi is not a lady and never will be. (No matter how many books she sells, how much money she makes, or how much work she has done). It makes me cringe when I hear people refer to her like ahe's been a victim... She is the orchestrator. Brandi is looking mucn better these days because Lisa and Yolanda have taken her under their wings, but it won't last....because she can't stop; Brandi can't control herself (her mouth). She thrives on gossip and making lude comments AND she does this for attention. It's becoming the Brandi show.... She has been the center of all the drama - and her stone throw keeps the drama rippling, and if you are really paying attention - you can see her on the other side of the lake - ready to throw the next stone...
You are so witty! The sex (or lack thereof) banter with Ken is hilarious. Brandi wasn't the only one screaming over you too during the massage! What a riot.
What a lovely lady you are! I enjoy watching you and Yolanda....both of you are positive, loving ladies with an appreciation for the truly important things in life....marriage, children and friendship. It is a bonus that both of you have beautiful taste and it is fun to see your beautiful homes, clothing, etc.! As I said, it is a bonus...however, the positive inspiration you both provide is a far greater gift!
I'm wondering what these women consider the definition of friendship. In my circle of close friends of 20+ years never have we had such turmoil. I can't once recall any one of us saying or doing something to intentionally hurt each other. I'm only sorry that after all this time they still seem to be searching for the true meaning of friendship.
You chose your friends just like most us. And we truley love them (our friendships) and want whats best for them..it's real friendships. These women have been placed in this arrangement to interact and have a jolly time. But some of these women just do not know how to play nice - we get to see interesting or even ugly sides and it's like watching them under a microscope...
Hey Lisa, I'm another fan of yours. You are beautiful and have so much class. Love Ken and Jiggy. Love the fact that you and Brandi are friends, she's fun to hang with and makes you laugh. Adrienne, who likes her? I like her husband, she's so non-lovable towards him. Kim is a total nut-job! HA I like Kyle but she didn't take up for you. She tries to stay even with everyone but sometimes she needs to step up for you like you do her. It's always sticky when you deal with sisters as friendships. I'm on the fence about Yolanda. She keeps bragging about being a model. Not sure where her head is in this. Marisa, I hate the fact she disrespects her husband and on tv. Taylor, another one, nutty as a fruitcake. On the entre' to the show she says, "I've worked hard to get to be in Beverly Hills." What did she do exactly? Faye is so gross and always causing drama and who asked her to chime in on any problems? Love you Lisa and Brandi--my favorites! Leigh from Florida
Just watched an older episode of RHOBH where Kyle was being attacked. You did not stick up for her you were silent. Me thinks dear lady you have a bit of the old BS.
What episode????? I dont recall that at all. Not that I care. Kyle is the core to all the drama and nonsense on this show.
Lisa, I love you, Brandi and Yolanda. I was always a fan of Kyle's until this season. The rest of the women are pure drama. Faye needs to go. Why does Bravo even give her face time? If they plan on making her part of the show I'm done and RHOBH is my favorite so PLEASE Bravo if you put anyone on the show put Marissa instead of the toxic waste dump Faye.
Lisa, I'm sure the Richard sisters will be on the attack in the Reunion. Not to worry. They're only as relevant as they make themselves, which isn't much. Kim was already on the war path at YOUR party. Blame, blame, blame. Poor baby, you hurt her, oh, so delicate feelings. But when she took Brandi's crutch, she's never apologized. Taking the crutch from a woman that can't walk without it? Oh, that's okay. But you asking if she took a sleeping pill is, well, just horrific!
When a money box is empty and you shake it,it makes a lot of noise, when it is full. . .not so much! SO TRUE!
Lisa, you are the best. and PS my boyfriend who just turned 27, thinks you are by FAR "the hottest housewife" on any of the housewife shows, and i agree.
It's you and Yolanda for advancing the image of HBH and Brandy for trying to grow through her pain. The rest of them are absolutely disasters with money attached or in the case of the Faye woman--reputation...
Best of luck to you and yours
Lisa: You are fabulous, completely fabulous! I love you completely. I understand your take on friendship, your work ethic, and your relationship with your wonderful husband. Brandi is a bit of a mess from time to time, and I admire your ability to see through it and be her friend. I don't blame you for moving from across the street from Adrienne a bit. She is such a drama queen, always wants to be in the limelight. Doesn't she know with all that plastic surgery her husband has performed on her, that she looks like a female version of him. Does she have hair of her own, besides what she buys and clips in. Oh, so fake, I can't stand fake.
You are right on when it comes to Kyle. Let her go, she is not your friend. She should have backed you up even if she didn't agreed with everything. That is what a 'true friend' does. She advertises that Beverly Hills is her town, well she needs to think twice. As for her being a sister to Kim, that is a laugh. She says more things to hurt her sister than I have heard from my step-mother in over 40 years. She is a disgrace, and Kim should just not have anything to do with her. Instead the poor girl wants her sister's love and approval. She should go to her other sister, Kathy. I saw the episode when Kim and her daughter went to Kathy's house for a dress and everything was just fine until Kyle showed up.
Yolanda is great! I really admired her ability to put Marissa on the spot with the trouble she was trying to cause Brandi the few days before the open house. Marissa is looking for some limelight herself and she doesn't have much to offer in the way of interesting. So she fabricated a line that she didn't think would come back to bit her in the a....s. Sorry, but it did. I like Yolanda, she is real. As far as Faye, ugh! She needs to go and I agree with some other comments, if she becomes a part of the group, I'm out of here.
Anyway, I love the show, and I wanted you to know how much I love watching you. You are absolutely fabulous and I love ya!
Lisa, You were wonderful on Dancing with the Stars! Once again you were a shining example of grace and charm. I understand why you and Brandi get on so well as chums....she has never shown signs of being vicious to the other girls as some of the people who appear now and then have done on numerous occasions. Wishing you and Ken all the best as you celebrate and recommit yourselves to each other. Great success to you in all your ventures as well as adventures. "Break a leg!"...not really....I'm sure you will understand.
Stay strong Lisa. You continue to take the high ground yet you are firm in and fair in the way you defend your self and I love you for it. Poor Kim, she seems to be in the thick of truly living a detox life and you got caught in the middle of it. I know you get it, and it is very kind and mature on your part not to simply cut off both of the Richard's sisters. You communicate your feelings very well and listen to other people very well. It is truly a gift that makes you a great communicator and thus a great leader.
It was nauseating to watch Faye try to bully Brandy once again. Faye Resnick, yuck, even her name is hideous. Sounds like some obscure, old fashion porn star. She seems so power hungry and so camera ready. Faye must be livid that Brandi is part of this show and she is not. What drives Faye is envy. She's desperately chasing the limelight of stardom in vain.
Faye did become Kyle's mouth piece but only to promote herself and Kyle knowing this, unleashed her. It seemed as if Faye saw her two tickets into the show as Kyle and the Mal-Hoof, as taking a back seat to you and Brandi and she had to come to their rescue. She is too old and not intelligent enough to hang out with you, Brandi, and Yolanda . Sad, very, very sad for Fay.
I love watching you and Ken. I have been married for 10 years and can't wait to do what you guys have done. Maybe not on the same level but on the same level of devotion. My husband and I watch and say this is how its done. My parents have been married for 51 years and my husbands parents have been married for 55 years and it is a joy to see marriages like these last with the fire still burning on both ends. Stay on TV because many are watching to see what comes next for you and Ken as well as Yolanda's marriage. Both to be admired.
how did faye score a invitation to Lisa's reception/party? i know she tends to slither where she is not wanted, how lady like right, (wink)!
Lisa. as a fellow brit, born an raised, I just want to be like you when i grow up. Lost my english cockiness, lol. Love the redo, of the vows ken's the best, kevin is "shee shee shee " can't wait for your return. Boss Lady
Why do Faye, Camille and Kyle feel the need to defend Adrienne who hides behind her millions and instead of confronting people head on, plants stories to destroy them publicly? She takes vengeance to another level and then plays innocent (and her voice sounds like nails on a chalkboard!) Money can't buy you class, but it can buy you pitbulls for your corner.
Lisa: You showed so much class by not asking or physically removing Faye from your home after she attacked you. She's a waste of space. I hope Bravo has enough sense to not put her on the show. You are a classy lady and I enjoyed how you kissed Kyle to get her to "shut up" in Paris. Its funny how she felt she could tell you "you hold a grudge" and when you tell her it hurts you, she acts like she did nothing wrong. Good for you to move on, Brandi is much more of a loyal person than Kyle was or ever will be. As for Kim, move on. Don't take it on your shoulders. She is in dire need of much more help than anyone of you can give. She has to want it tho in order for it to happen. Keep being yourself and all the rest will not matter.
Love love love watching you and your Ken! It's a real treat to see a married couple together for 30+ years ON TV living their happily ever after! You two are a class act ! God bless y'all!
LOL, Good thing you ladies reside in Beverly Hills. With her attitude, Faye would've never made it past her confrontation with Brandi where I live. After being thrown out of the party, she would've received a good and proper beat-down for running her mouth.....
Lisa, I absolutely adore you... but what the hell was that idiot (FS) doing at your party?? I just naturally thought you would not have the likes of her there... so very confused.
Just one question....WHY WAS Fayke AT YOUR HOUSE WARMING/VOW RENEWAL??? Yes I'm yelling, I'm very upset that you would stain your home with her presence !
I can't believe Faye Rancid actually attacked you at your own house warming/vow renewal! Actually, I can believe it. This is the woman who capitalized off the murder of her best friend after all. Does anything she says/does really a surprise? I used to think she was the scum of the Earth but this season has made me downgraded my opinion.
By the way, loved you on Dancing with the Stars! It was my first time ever watching the show! Rooting for you, Giggy and Gleb!
Lisa, you have become Brandi's sidekick despite the expensive gifts and money you funnel her to be your friend. She has turned you into a joke, and I USED to be your biggest fan before you showed your trashy petty side and comfort with trash. We need people like faye and marissa to stand up against the schoolyard trashy bullies Lisa and Brandi, who just boringly keep getting together to bash Adrienne sessions who is barely on the show anymore! Kyle is backing off and Yolanda is joining them, so we need the breath of fresh air that is Marissa and Faye who are not afraid to go against the boring cast members. Brandi, without Adrienne (who ironically got you on the show it seems), you have nothing! Your life and relevancy revolves around Adrienne, as does your sidekick Lisa who just keeps plugging her previously unheard of restaurant all the time. Boring!
Hahahaha.....Are you kidding me? Faye is nothing but a joke. I am hoping Marissa can turn it around she does talk out both sides of her mouth and looks like she is trying too hard to fit in.
RuthIsraeloff get off Faye you are ugly and mean spirited, ans material stuff like channel bags validate you, creep.
RuthIsraeloff I've seen you all over the blogs, realitytea, hollywood gossip, sayin the same things...you are a freakin troll who is being paid by one of these faye supporters to say she is a breath of fresh air...you are delusional
