A very happy new year to you all. I hope it was a brief respite from the daily slog. Mine was certainly busy, and then I succumbed to a cold -- but am feeling much better now.
We conclude the ill-fated dinner that was hosted by Kyle. As I review this episode I am thankful to have had the wherewithal to have refused the offer of dinner to reconcile the relationship between Adrienne and I, and that I had chosen to meet alone.
I recall feeling rather irritated at Faye's attitude, but also powerless to defend Brandi. I couldn't justify the fact that Brandi had exposed something so personal. I was disgusted quite frankly at Faye rubbing her hands in glee saying I relish in winding Brandi up, and incite situations then step away from them. On the contrary, I spend a good deal more time placating her, and calming her down. I object to that, but it begs the question where she has gleaned this information, as I have spent little, if any time, in the company of Faye and Brandi together.
Lisa, you are awesome. You are everything these "girls," strive to be and I find more truth in your whole being than in the other women's little fingers. You, Brandi and Yolanda make a "YA YA." As long as you guys keep calling out the bullshit of these phoney CA women that are trying to penetrate the show, you will be fine.
Lisa, You are my FAVORITE housewife! Gracious, witty, intelligent, loving, and beautiful! I canNOT stand when Faye appears onscreen. It is apparent that she is desperately trying to create a recurring role for herself on the show. Each time she appears, all I can think is, the "bulldog" has been unleashed again. Most of the time, her rants have very little to do with anything that relates to her, yet she inserts herself into the situation forcefully and aggressively. Maybe she should seek employment as a cagefighter! Continued blessings and success to you and your family!
Lisa: You are my all-time favorite housewife! I actually commend you on not firing Sheanna. Although you are friends with Brandi, and while none of us condone Sheanna's behavior with Brandi's husband, it would be juvenile to fire her for that reason. Her sexual immorality does not affect her job, and the two should be separated.
Also, on Monday's episode, you made a comment that no one defended you when Adrienne attacked you at the Housewives Reunion show last year. You are SO right! Everyone is jumping so quickly to Adrienne's defense after Brandi's comment, but Adrienne attacked your credibility and reputation on national television and no one said a thing. They are ALL hypocrites.
Keep being MARVELOUS!!
Kyle and Faye are the absolutely hypocritical bully's!
Kyle is a bully who always starts the mess, and steps away to watch it crumble. Faye shouldn't have an opinion and forgets that Kyle asked the question. Don't ask a question that you don't want the answer to. She's rude and mean!
Adrienne is a hypocrite.
Lisa is the only one with integrity.
I think it is so funny how everyone is ok to speak their mind but when it comes to being accountable then they don't have the time to apologize.....or want to hold on to offenses but want to appear so 'mature'. Defending a woman that tells everyone to F off....no matter what others may say - let's be accountable for what we say to people....bottom line. Your husband getting involved because he is flattered with brandi's flirtations clearly shows he isn't always looking at things thru the view of what was right and wrong. Brandi was wrong and should have picked up the phone immediately -----when she didn't she only helped to encourage the Maloof's to protect themselves from the possibility of slander.
Can't wait for the show tonight! Unfortunately from the preview it looks like once again, Brandi is forced to defend herself. I'm beginning to think Kyle & Adrienne got together before filming even started and had a plan to discredit Brandi. It seems because of Adrienne & Brandi's past friendship Brandi knows things that Adrienne is uncomfortable with her knowing, & now that your friendship with Brandi has grown, this was Adrienne's way of making her look bad. Adrienne knew Kyle would join forces with her to destroy Brandi because of Mo's professional assoc with the Maloofs and clearly Kyle has always seemed jealous of Brandi. When she accused you of not liking Adrienne at her dinner disaster, because you defended Brandi, I wish someone woud have thrown that back on Kyle, proof that she doesn't lt like Brandi since she defended Adrenne. Love your new show, bet that burns Kyle! Love you & Brandi, see you tonight on Bravo!
Seemed to me the seating arrangement was a dead give-away that both Brandi and you would be the targets of the evening. The two of them surrounded you. Quite honestly, it seems to me that Kyle wants you to go down with Brandi. I called people like Kyle the saboteur friends. I have a sister very much like her.
Glad you excused yourself early from Kyle's dinner. Life is too short to spend your evening with crappy company, Faye. I would have loved for Camille, Taylor and Marisa to have left as well. Leaving Faye and Kyle to celebrate their success of upsetting Brandi. Perhaps, it would have helped Kyle see how inappropriate the whole thing was. On a happier note, I had dinner at Sur Tuesday night. The food and service were great! Kristen waited on us and she was even prettier in person.
Love your friendship w/Brandi. Love how you stay true and solid. Don't understand putting Scheanna (sic) on your new show. Seems she's had her 15 minutes and Should NOT be Rewarded for Ruining your friend's Marriage..... .????
Lisa you are way to classy to sit anywhere near Faye, she is not an attractive woman or soul!!! So sad! no wonder she is angry!
All I have to say is, you are one dam good friend!! wife, and mother!! and business woman.... And you do it all with class....
Faye was completely out of line. Kyle needs to stop acting like the pit bull she accuses all the other women of being. I love you Lisa!!!!!!!!!'m
Lisa, i ador you!!! i appreciate that you blog every week.it makes me feel that you care about us viewers. I love how loyal you are to the people you love and care about. Keep being you, youare one classy lady.
Forgot to ask why didn't Kyle stop the argument at dinner? It was not the place to discuss any of what went on.
Lisa, I love that you tell it like it is. Please don't ever stop doing just that! Now Faye, she's so last seasons Hermes bag. I am sick and tired of her trying to weasel into the show. Since when have i been watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills AND FRIENDS?
I agree with you lisa. Who has she been hearing everything from since she is not there when all this was going on. I do not know your life or theirs, but if it does not involve that person then they should stay out of it. Faye and Kyle seem like they are the mean girls. NO ONE is better than the other. Why did faye start this at a friends dinner?
Lisa that was good to stand up for Brandi and that showed class to leave another one of Kylie's failed parties! I wish you would have told Faye to shut up she went too far! Kyle should have but she set this up just so Brandi would be attacked!!!! I hope freaky Faye is not going to be on the show because she makes me sick she needs a good ole okie butt kicking!!!! Lisa use your connections and boycott Faye. I like your little "Gigi" I have some little ones and glad to see another good pet owner. Since the china dog snacks have been killing dogs we make our own dog treats that's all natural with no chemicals, fillers etc. they are healthy!
Kimber01I agree with you totally about Kyle inviting Faye to start trash, just like she brought Faye to Camille's dinner a few seasons ago to start trash. I can't stand people like Kyle...
Lisa, I don't understand why you attack Faye Resnick when all she is doing is telling the truth and trying to rectify the situation. You end up defending a middle aged woman who needs to grow up and get a life.
gbby2012 I don't understand why you think fake Faye had any business even discussing this issue with Brandi and Lisa and why you attack Lisa for having an honest opinion about the situation. Faye or anyone cannot recttify a situation by demanding an apology and flowers in behalf of someone they felt bad for. Apologies needs to happen honestly and when the wrong doer is ready. Faye cannot tell the truth about this situation because she doesn't even know Brandi. Faye is passed middle aged and needs to get a life of her own that does not involve cameras and prying into things she knows nothing about. Fayes intentions were malicious and self serving and had nothing to with rectifying things out of her or Kyles control.
@gbby2012 ...are you kidding! You need to go back and watch the last 2 episodes. Lisa never attacked Faye ...the only person on the attack was Faye. If I were Lisa I would of said a lot more than she did. Faye's truth as you say is second hand information and she doesn't even know Brandi. Your talking about the wrong person here that needs to grow up and get a life.
gbby2012 Seriously.....I almost can't be bothered replying to this - rectify?? - wow! just when I thought we'd heard it all, you manage to find another angle. Oh and If Brandi is middle aged Faye is positively ancient.
gbby2012 What show are you watching? Are you kidding me.. I don't what face of the earth you come from, but where I come from grown women don't act the way Fake Faye was acting. First of all it's none of Fake Fayes business. You don't invite someone to your home for dinner and then you and friend gang up on the guest.
@gbby2012 Attack Faye?? If Lisa's attacked Faye, then what do you call Faye's behavior towards Brandi? The only attack going on was initiated by Faye. If Faye was truly concerned about Adrienne then she would not give the "topic" any more airtime. Faye was not trying to rectify anything. She was simply being a bully and trying to get airtime... All while being a huge hypocrite.
gbby2012I have to disagree with you. Faye has nothing to do with Brandi and Adrienne's situation; therefore, she should butt out. Neither do any of the other ladies. What's the difference between Lisa defending Brandi and Kyle defending Adrienne (in every freaking episode!)? I think Lisa was just being a good friend. Even though I don't agree with Brandi's comment about Adrienne (keep in mind that Kyle was the one who asked Brandi about Adrienne in the first place), it was hard to watch all of them gang up on Brandi in that way. Very mean spirited...
Lana OK, obviously you are Faye or Kyle or Adrienne so.....with that in mind: Lisa was not obligatred to use Adrienne casino and for Adrienne to attack Lisa about that was just stupid and classless. Lisa is upset with Adrienne because she backstabbed her at last years reunion and accused her of selling a story to a magazine. Adrienne came out of left field with that attack. It hurt Lisa's feeling so Faye should try to support Lisa by making Adrienne apologize for that (this is by your reasoning). Faye can't give advice to me, to god or anyone else she does not know personally. She was butting into a problem she knows nothing about and did it for the cameras. She did not support Brandi at all!!!! And like Marisa pointed out, advice should only be given when asked for. For Brandi to not air her dirty laundry about Adrienne was commendable and wise since Adrienne is so litigation happy. What I find peculiar is that Adriennes casino was mentioned BYNAME. That is very peculiar and your logic about faye doesn't hold water. It works both ways.
Lana With respect i don't think you figured it out at all:
1. If Lisa did promote her friends business so what - why on earth would that make her negative about Adrienne??
2. Not everything Brandi does is fine by Lisa, Lisa states in her blog that it was difficult to support Brandi regarding what she said.
3. Sending flowers isn't an automatic 'all better now' Lisa didn't need to support that idea because it was a shallow and condescending suggestion and only Brandi and Adrienne sitting down privately (without Kyle) are going to sort things.
Lisa was not numb or dumb but a good friend who would allow a friend to make up her own mind and not join the bullying that was going on.
4. Brandi does no need to tell Faye nobody all the details of how Adrienne is being mean to her - why would she do that while the witch hunt was going on??
and finally.....Lisa does not lose her cool because she has class NOT because she's worried about her image - that is called responding not reacting - more people should try that
What is very peculiar is that you watched it twice and still came to this conclusion
You are confused. Lisa's friend does not own the hotel where Pandora's bachelorette party was held. There was no promoting going on.
Lana I am wondering why ANYONE responds to this person???
we have all read the same twisted comments...............I see her name and just skip it
LanaI was with you....until you said that Lisa is upset with Adrienne because of the hotel situation. I think it's the complete opposite! Adrienne was upset because Pandora's party was not being held at her hotel, and she has gone after Lisa since then. Lisa gives Brandi great advice. Lisa tells Brandi when she has gone too far, and tells her repeatedly that she needs to remain calm in order to get her point across instead of flying off the handle under pressure. How is that not good advice? Faye was not genuine in her "peace-offering" advice to Brandi; she was simply trying to belittle Brandi and make her feel stupid. Brandi and Adrienne are grown women. Faye had no right to make any comments on the situation whatsoever, and ESPECIALLY had no right to tell Brandi to apologize and send flowers.
You are soooo out of touch! you need to pay attention. Perhaps you are watching another show.
"Some inspire me by their strength of character and in some I have been disappointed, as I know you the viewer has." Does that scream Kyle and Adrienne or what??? In my opinion, of course.
Kyle likes to stir that pot! Kyle first brought up to Brandi what all was up with Adrienne. Then she lets Faye in on all the gossip. Stir that pot Kyle!
You are my favorite person on bravo!
Keep rising above these ladies!! You truly are a class act!
Love Love Love you and your Ken doll. You and Yolanda are by far my favorite Housewives and I hope Brandi can learn from the two of you what true class means. Love your new show , continued success in the New Year
Faye is an excellent example of a truthless person. She makes me want to keep being vigorously honest with myself at all times so that I never fall into the trap of self-delusion.
Lisa is an excellent example of a very caring and realistic human being. She's so smart! I wish she could be my friend and mentor!!
Kyle isn't very bright. She really screwed herself out of a good friend. I hope Brandi and Lisa stay friends forever.
On a side note, I think it would be very clever of Bravo to air a Christmas special featuring all the housewives' houses decorated for the holidays. I'm thinking of Lisa and Yolanda in particular but all of them, of course. That would be so much fun!!
PoconoMt.Pa.housewife Hopefully no one. That's not a holiday special that I would enjoy. Sad but true that we would expect something like that to happen from a few of these ladies. Let's hope that next year's ladies are actually ladies and that they know how to make the holidays magical. That would be amazing!
I never thought I'd be a person that would watch any Housewives franchise, but I have to admit, last year I caught some of Beverly Hills and so enjoyed watching you and Ken. You guys got me hooked. You guys are great to watch...and I love your humor. You seem like a good friend and I am officially a fan. Best to you!
Thank goodness for you and Yolanda on this show. It seems it is where all the class and style is coming from.
You have always been my fav. Now I am glad they have drafted in Yolanda too. You are the only two with wisdom and sense. I also love Brandi too - she may be too much for some but I love that she is not afraid to speak her mind.
