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.
I left the table, then unbeknownst to me, Brandi was outside in tears. I noticed she left and urged Kyle to check on her, when I went outside I was deeply saddened to see Brandi desolate, crying. I don't want to constantly battle with these women. Brandi had said. . .by her own admission. . .that she was regretful. I knew that, contrary to what Kyle was saying to Marisa, that Brandi was sincere.
And on it goes, Kyle saying that we behave like kids at elementary school. Last week we were pitbulls. I can't ever remember behaving like either of those. However I do recall something similar to a pitbull at her dining table.
Brandi and I meet up. I am hesitant to bring up the situation with Scheana, but many times they have crossed paths and all of us decided, it would be mutually beneficial to bring this awkward situation to fruition. For a more expanded view on this check out my blog on Vanderpump Rules.
I felt such sadness seeing Taylor in that position of giving her wedding ring away. For it to have come to that, I hope she felt some sort of closure, coupled with relief at being able to put this whole tragedy behind her.
And there we have it. As we all move forward opening some doors and closing others, I certainly have more clarity with regard to our group of women. Some inspire me by their strength of character and in some I have been disappointed, as I know you the viewer has. But as we enter this new year, I have optimism for the future. I also have to check myself, and make sure we always take stock of our blessings, be kind to one another, and embrace the ones you love.
Love always Lisa.
