Cast Blog: #RHOBH

Flowers Are a Step in the Right Direction

Lisa gets the point of Adrienne's olive branch, though she could have picked better hues.

Well hello to you all. Welcome back! I have missed you all but have been overwhelmingly busy. So here we are again as the curtain rises on what will prove to be an incredible season, full of twists and turns, and certainly some rather challenging hurdles!

The dynamics of this group of women certainly changed at the reunion last season -- feelings were hurt, accusations were rife, and the reverberations were felt by all, but we, because of the situation in which we are immersed, we have to make decisions about the best way to go forward.

I knew as I planned our third anniversary party at Villa Blanca that inviting Adrienne would not only be hypocritical but, at best, an uneasy, awkward meeting that would cast a negative slant on what was supposed to be, a joyous occasion. I hadn't seen her socially since that day, certainly she had never reached out, she had hosted an event with the other girls in Vegas and I understood the friendships to be divided. I was not of the mind to invite her just because filming was beginning.

I knew for me to go forward, I needed a reconciliation, some sort of closure and it had to start with an apology, or I would just be polite in her company but that was most she could hope for.

Kyle had sent me an email after the reunion. We had then talked and issues were dealt with, can't say resolved but there was a semblance of peace between us. Brandi and I had become closer. I relished her honesty and enjoyed the playful banter between us. I also didn't forget how she had chosen not to side with the others. So Brandi comes to our new house, frankly saying she wanted to be the first to see it, rubber sheet and tequila gun in hand, but with good intention!

The Villa Blanca party was a really small gathering, but I had invited Yolanda and David to join us. This would be her introduction to the group and I was excited to see their reaction. Kim and her connected immediately and I was running around like a chicken with its head cut off.

In the middle of the evening a messenger arrives, announcing there was a delivery for me and lo and behold this massive tree trunk, decorated with flowers and feathers arrives with good wishes from Adrienne. Look I know it was a statement but regardless of that I saw it as a step in the right direction, not the way I would've handled it but we are clearly very different people. I knew many poked fun at the arrangement ,being the fact that my restaurant is called Villa Blanca. . .white! Also anybody who knows me knows I love pink!

Anyway you will have to watch and see how this plays out, the journey on which we take you will be at times, a little bumpy. When I saw this show tonight I realized just how much I have missed it, seeing little darling Portia, the beauty of Yolanda's house, Brandi and her playfulness, so many components that will ensure an amazing season, so until next next week. . .

Love always,
Lisa

Brandi: I'm Always Here For You, Kim

Brandi focuses on the positive this week as this season's RHOBH comes to an end.

Hey Bravo Fans,

Today was a fabulous day--t was my baby Jake’s birthday. We got his favorite Oreo ice cream cake, and for our family celebration, it was perfection. I can’t believe he’s already eight. I had to hold back my tears when I realized I will never again use that number eight candle. #mommymoment

It has been a really exciting week for me. My Sonoma County chardonnay, Unfiltered Blonde, launched for pre-sales this week, and despite it being tax season, the first day alone was a huge success. Thank you! The website is up now at www.unfilteredblonde.com. The creation of the wine was an incredibly long and careful process, and I couldn’t be happier or more proud of my finished product. I’m sure you're all as excited as me that this week was the FINALE episode of BATSH-- crazy RHOBH reunion. 

I could talk about the she said, she said, she said… but let’s not and pretend we did. It’s been a long season, kind of centering on one night that really isn’t worth the attention it was given. I’m tired of it, it happened several months ago, I’m sure you’re tired of it. You know why? Because it’s old news and in the PAST! 

Eileen, your house is lovely. Sorry I said otherwise for the sake of a laugh. I really like Vincent, he is super cool, your little boy is adorable, you seem like a good stepmom, and I wish you and your family the very best.

Lisa R., I really loved you on my podcast. You made me laugh and rolled with punches. I really enjoyed our interview, and I enjoyed most of the season with you. I think that’s what I’m going to take away and forget about the rest. I think sometimes you make it harder on yourself with your Twitter feed, but I’m choosing not to engage. I really liked a side of you, and you seem to have a beautiful family.

Lisa V., I had a lot of fun with you and Ken. I will always have a special place in my heart for you guys. I wish Ken the best of health and a speedy recovery. 

Kyle, best wishes on you and your family’s endeavors. My sincerest wish is that you and Kim could be as close as you ever were in the near future.

You are a strong chica and I know your family is better for it. 

Brandi Glanville

Kim, love having you as a BFF. I’m always here for you, and I hope you are always here for me. You are a strong chica, and I know your family is better for it. You are hilarious, and I love our funny talks and text-offs. Laughter is the best medicine. I heart you.

Yo, my dear, dear Yo, I will see you soon. I love you, you are so strong and so brave! I know you are going to kick Lyme disease’s ass! Anything you need, just emoji me.

I want to thank all my supporters for always being there for me regarding all of my other endeavors, including my books, podcast, Celebrity Apprentice, app, my t-shirts, and finally my WINE and for allowing me to be me.

Ok guys, this is the big week. This is the Make*A*Wish Los Angeles Walk for Wishes Walkathon. Me and the boys pledged to try to raise $15,000--I have $12,625 so far. We need $2,375 by Friday at midnight, every dollar counts. Thank you!

I heart you all!

Xoxo
