Things You Will Always See at a White Party

If Faye's There, I Won't Be

If Lisa had known Faye was planning on being a mouthpiece at Kyle's party, she (and Brandi) should have skipped it.

Hello to you all,well I forewarned you that this journey was going to be riddled with trials and tribulations!

So let's try to dissect this complicated episode. . .we resume with the awful scenario at Mauricio's event. Clearly Kim wanted to be a loyal friend and inform them, but she shouldn't have ignited the situation there. But hindsight is 20-20!

I had been briefly given the lowdown by Kyle the next morning and then, as you saw, Brandi comes over to see Ken and explain what had exactly transpired.

When I viewed this episode I wasn't prepared for the venom and ugliness, the temper of Paul, the vicious accusations by Adrienne towards Brandi, and I immediately understood why Taylor looked like a deer in the headlights, given her past. I cannot fathom how the other men stood by and let Paul verbally assault Brandi. It would never have happened if Ken had been there. Lord knows what would have ensued.

I have always endeavored to be honest with my friends, fellow 'Wives, and you the viewer. I would be dishonest if I let my support of Brandi supersede what I truly believed was right -- she shouldn't have said it. However I understood Brandi's frustration with Adrienne, as I have been in situations manifested by Adrienne and her staff of complete utter nonsense, constantly on social media and in the press, that I have really wanted to respond to,but have somehow managed to ignore. Maybe with the support of my husband calming me. When I have been so insulted by the things written that have come from her and her staff, it has been somewhat easier. . .Brandi has had to deal with it alone.

Brandi is, as you know, more volatile. She regrets what she said. Did I chastise her? Yes, to be truthful I did. She wished she could retract it. . .too late.

Ken, on the other hand, as thrilled as I was to have him home and doing so well, as you see, is a nightmare of a patient. He had been home a few days, had me up and down like a bloody yo yo. So when I witnessed him laughing with Martin, I know that, if there is another time. . .He can stay with Martin.

I have to say anybody undergoing a hip surgery,this doctor was amazing and within a week he was pain free and back to normal. Incredible!

We were invited to Kyle's house for dinner. If I had known that Faye was going to be there, all clued in, on what was supposed to be a secret, I would have possibly refused the invitation and advised Brandi to do likewise. I have memories of another dinner party where Faye was back up, mouthpiece, or whatever one would like to call her. It was an impossible situation. I knew Brandi had shown her regret but still felt indignant, and I agree with the fact that her feelings were valid too.

So we leave the party so to speak, until next next time. I will take this chance to wish you all a very happy holidays. My family want to "relax" at home that means me cooking 24/7! I wouldn't change it as I rarely have them all under one roof. It is a time of year to reflect, value, and cherish what we have.

In the wake of the horrific shooting in Connecticut, I send my condolences to the families that have lost their little ones. I cannot possibly ever understand the motivation for a heinous crime like this. My heart truly breaks for each and everyone who has lost somebody.

Thank you all for your support. God bless and a happy Christmas.

Lisa V.: I Needed an Uncomplicated Friendship

Lisa explains why she invited Lisa Rinna to Palm Springs and her hesitation to invite Max's girlfriend.

Hellooo to all of you. It is such a busy time of year. I have been running around like a chicken with its head cut off! I am sure you are all juggling, too.

So as we settle down and watch this week, I realize why I truly enjoyed this episode as it was one that validates my choice to have been immersed in the crazy world of reality, a documentation of some of the most important and poignant moments of my life. Receiving the star was most definitely one of them. A moment when time stands still and you listen to words of appreciation and support from your loved ones, people that took the time to travel two hours and stand in 115 degree heat was something I didn't take for granted. Their personal journeys that they relayed at dinner made me reflect on why I have stood vociferously in their corner for many years.

I was fortunate enough to have been raised without prejudice of any kind, and I believe my role as a heterosexual woman is an important voice and ally to the gay community.

It really was such an honor to be awarded with the Star on the Walk of Stars. Palm Springs has been so good to me. I have received the Icon award, the key to the city, and the grand marshal of the Christmas parade, and it is mostly due to my indomitable support of the gay community over the years. It is a city where people can safely walk hand in hand, regardless of their sexual preference, and for that, I am thankful. That is a city and a world I would like to live in.

My reticence to have Max's girlfriend come and spend the couple of days with us was one I question: Should I have invited her? The rest of the family were adamant that it was too early. It was a relationship I was most certainly not familiar with and was hardly encouraging as she was thirteen years older than him and worked for me at SUR. I felt her life was in a very different place to his and did not want to encourage that. However, she spent the weekend with us in Palm Springs this weekend and their rocky relationship, one that has been confusing to him and has continued, so time will tell, but it has come to a place where if I want to stay close to my son, I have to accept it.

So back to the matter at hand...

I often find that the way you feel about a friend is largely dependent on how they make you feel. 

Lisa Vanderpump

This was quite early in the season, and I had barely interacted with any of the women: briefly at the white party, a couple of lunches, that was it. So the decision to invite Lisa Rinna was an obvious one. We had seen each other for lunch, Harry was out of town with the girls, and she was, as always, her supportive, enthusiastic self, and I loved having her by my side. I often find that the way you feel about a friend is largely dependent on how they make you feel. Well Miss Rinna is a wonderfully positive person, and I needed an uncomplicated friendship at a time that was, in all honesty, a little daunting and somewhat overwhelming.


Seeing Yolanda struggle to come to terms with Bella's DUI was understandable. I felt for her as the severity of the situation really outweighs the action. It is a careless action often with dire consequences, and I know that a lesson was well learnt from that experience, but then couple it with the history of losing your father at a tender age has to be even more emotionally challenging. It tugged at my heart strings as she tried to hold it together.

Kim's daughter Brooke getting married was a lovely moment to savor, and I totally understood feelings of pride and joy as she relinquished her daughter to the arms of her chosen man, but luckily for Kim as not so often with others, she adores him.



The importance of that relationship as two families intertwine is paramount. We were so lucky with Jason, and I appreciate that every time we are all together, I gained a son.

Happy to see Eileen integrating into the cast. I have such admiration for the dedication to her work. Fifty pages a day! Can hardly remember my own name some days...

Anyway, this episode has such a feel-good factor, I hope you enjoy it before the fireworks start!
As always, Love, Lisa.
