Lisa Vanderpump

Lisa explains how she tried to let Yolanda make her own decisions about the women, Adrienne included.

on Nov 19, 20120

And here we are again,our third leg on what could be described as an arduous race, a journey that has so many bumps in the road that it is important to take note of all the little nuances that you may witness along the way.

Many times I have been asked why I would venture into the world of reality? Well many reasons, and as I observe Kim and her daughter preparing for her prom, those moments that are forever preserved, that you can replay, like I have many times with my daughters engagement, wedding preparation, and marriage, I know there lies one of my answers.

Then we have the short vignette of Kyle teaching her daughter to drive in a Porsche. . .I think it would probably be wiser and less pressure for her to learn in an old banger, the way my children did. Just saying.

We had all been invited to Yolanda and David's for dinner. I had introduced Yo Yo to this group of women and been mindful not to influence her either way, not to gossip and explain the hurt and accusations. So she was largely unaware of the negativity between Adrienne and I, and I felt that she should form her own opinions and not be influenced by me. It was a choice and my perception of some people at that point maybe would have colored her point of view.

Hi Lisa,

Love you to pieces.  Thanks for always taking the high road and keeping things funny!  Taylor is an idiot for repeating Brandi's comment - Brandi said, "Beverly Hills is a small town.  Everybody knows everybody and everybody has slept with everybody." How Tayor twisted that joke into "Brandi told us she slept with every man in Beverly Hills! She admitted it!" is just plain mean and dishonest.  Adrienne wanted to make herself the topic of your party so she made a statement by sending you that hideous arrangement.  She's so jealous of you it's funny  How desperate!

 

Lisa, you are everybody's favorite housewife!

Lisa, you have to know you are everyone's favorite Housewife, of them all.  Your wit and sense of humor is so refreshing, and you do it with so much class. You are an absolute genious in starting your own show, featuring your SUR.  I know its going to be good, and I can't wait.  I think the catty-ness involving you is just pure jealousy.  Simply because you are the favorite...  Everyone wants what you have.  I have never read any of your blogs, (until I am done writing this), and I know that you are loved more than the others.     I enjoy so much what you bring to the show.  Teaming up with Brandi makes it even better.  Watching the two of you is so fun.  I am sure you are teaching her a thing or two, along with your employees.   Oh, I am sure it is going to be a riot!  I am really excited about you new show, because I used to be a bartender and a waitress, so I know the drama that occurs in an establishment like yours.  When I come to Cali from Michigan to see my twin boys, I will definately stop in and have dinner and drinks.  Hopefully, I will see you there!!

Just accept it and move on. Flowers were so ugly that I have to wonder if it wasn't staged, just hard to believe that Adrian would have sent something so horrid.  I think Bravo sent them.

I think that was the weakest appology I have ever witnessed and that floral arrangement looked like a tree branch being brought into your lovely party.  Adrienne is very spiteful and I don't blame you if you keep your distance.  I thought you and brandy being paired up together on your trip to ojai was obvious but still good for you two.  I cannot believe how mean the others come off to brandys face, do they not realize that its so shameful.  Adrienne trying to make sure she had the bigger bed than yours was so childish and fitting for her these days.  I love that you and brandy keep on smiling and having a good time...kill them with kindness I say ha ha.  Brandy is outspoken so adrienne making a scene at the dinner table was not a surprise and everyone has to agree, she deserved to be told to stfu....funny as hell.   Why doesn't some of these women ever tell taylor to shut up considering she is always going on and on and on about brandy this and brandy that....stfu taylor...damn.  I can't wait to watch your new show thats coming out in the new year!  I love that you are friends with brandy because she needs a true one.

I just learned about your new show and now last season's reunion makes sense. I was already sure that all the animosity directed at you was based on jealousy, but see now that those who were attacking you had another reason to be jealous. I can't wait for your new show.

I loved the outfit Lisa wore in the limo ride. I want to buy it. White bouse over a pink bra, jeans rolled up. Simple and clean.

Oh yeah, Lisa always comes across as confident. Most of the others seem to try too hard...either to be liked by each other or the fans. Lisa seems like she doesn't give a fart if you like her not. I like her.

I think its obvious to most that Adrienne's 'peace gift' was a giant 'f.u' to you in an outwardly passive-aggressive manner. She was determined to be the topic at your party even if not invited. She did it on purpose. It was a nasty thing to do. Ken is right. Adrienne is a malicious phony b and you don't need nasty and manipulative fakes like her in your life. You are a beautiful person inside and out. Adrienne is the loser here.

I am disappointed in how ugly you have become. Making snide comments about several of the ladies. I know I don't know you but I used to think I would like to know you but not so much any more. Just saying...

I love watching you on the show. You seem to be one of the very few that make sense. You should definitely not speak to Adrienne unless she apologizes. I don't understand what her animosity towards you is about. She must be jealous about something. She is truly coming across as a very nasty person.

Full of class and wisdom, as always!!!  Taylor is a hot mess!! Dont care for Kim or Kyle!! Yuk!

I could feel the discomfort at the dinner at Yolanda's house. However, you were a true lady as always.  Can't say the same type of classy behavior followed Adrienne and her oaf husband. Their eye rolling whilst you spoke was juvenile at best.  March on dear lady!!

Not quite sure why you posted clip of Taylor's tipsy rant. Had nothing to add to your point, which was ???? Hummmm. I don't know. Sometimes you are FULL of yourself. Apologize For Hurting Her EVEN when you didn't INTEND to. We're not talking right or wrong here, we're talking IF You Cared about her and knew her feelings were Hurt, then Say, "I'm sorry you feel I did whatever. This is what I meant. You are my friend and I would never want to cause you pain." Simple. It takes 2 to Tango. You Are Not Without Blame here. Own your Part. Stop playing the Victim. You are Not.

Did anybody noticed:

1. Ken went to get Lisa's clutch/hand bag when Yolanda friend Nita arrived?

2. Ken doesn't seem happy?

I like both Lisa and Ken, but feel she emasculate him as a man. I wish them the best and I hope everything is well.

Lisa you are one snarky b. you are a very big bully. When people don't play your way you become ugly. Shame on you. And I thought you had class. Boy I was wrong. Try to remember forgiveness goes a long way. After all I'm sure you have never done anyone wrong. Right?

You are very critical of Kyle. Even though she defended you this episode.... I'm over your "holier-then-thou" attitude. Who do to think you are-- Danielle (from RHONJ)? She's the one who always used to say "Just saying." It was annoying then too.

Lisa~ Just watched the RHOBH interview with you, Brandi, and Kyle on the View. I wish there had been more of you and Brandi and less of Kyle. You have such lovely and authentic social graces. I wish I could be just like you in some ways, especially when it comes to straight-shooting with confidence and poise and embracing your friend's vulnerabilities with tender kindness. You never apologize for being true to yourself, and I love that about you. Thanks for bringing in Yolanda. I am loving her crisp and honest style. Even though our lifestyles are different, I am starting to see how very little that actually matters. It's about what makes you happy, and I've always been happy living simply and conscientiously. You, Brandi, and Yolanda are inspiring me to come out of my shell, stand unwaveringly by my point of view, and live unapologetically with dignity and joy. Looking forward to more drama! <3

I saw previews of Vanderpump rules. From what I see, it looks like the Rodeo Drive version of the Jersey Shore or 'bad girls club'.

I hope that isn't what it is. We don't need another reality show of young drunks fighting.

It did not look appealing.

 

Meanwhile back to this show...the tables have turned haven't they? I was just reading a few posts for season one and everyone praised Adrienne from head to tail....and here it looks like she has no fans left. Has the real Adrienne been exposed?

 

This all makes me want to move to the Beverly Hills trailer park, I mean, community just to watch the trash, I mean neighbors.

 @Kingunleashed727 I am sorry, but you are wrong. It is the objective phrase. You wouldn't say between I, would you? No, you would say between me.

Lisa is my favorite RHOBH but I can definitely see the snarky and sideways comments shes throws around. She's a beautiful lady but it really makes her come off as ugly with some of things she says. You can't pretend to take the high road and all the while be throwing jabs at the other ladies. I'm sure that's the behavior they were talking about at the reunion & no you can't just chalk it up as English humor. Shade is shade no matter where you from or at.

@Lisa Vanderpump. Hi Lisa, I just wanted to let you know that you stated that,"the negativity between Adrienne and I," and that is grammatically incorrect. The correct way to say it is, "between Adrienne and me." I just thought you would like to know.

I don't really care if you and Adrienne make up.  I think what she did to you, was very rude. I think you are a very charming lady that deserves to be treated

WOW ---- just noticed!!! Perhaps I'm mistaken, but when Taylor greeted you at Yolanda + David's dinner party ---- did Taylor wipe her hand on your dress???

Lisa, you are the classiest lady across ALL the Bravo HW franchises. I adore you only a smidge less than my fave Giggy! I'm sure you understand why he comes first in my heart :).

I got out your book, which helped me put together the best Thanksgiving party there ever was in this household. My family appreciates...I hope to see more of you, Brandi and Yolanda. And maybe you can get a couple more of your friends for next season? I so prefer to see sophisticated, authentic women on TV. LUV YOU!

Hi Lisa, was in L.A. recently, didn't get to Villa Blanca, so wanted to!...:( Next trip for sure;) I hope you and Adrienne have patched things up and are not just dealing with one another because you live in the same town and work together...:(

 

I've been where you are (were), getting attacked by a friend in front of a group in their home, in front of (and by) their guest -a total character assassination, I never received an apology or talk like Adrienne gave you, and just like you - I need it... Don't think I will ever get it, they have hinted that they are sorry (asking me - aren't I going to give them a hug, the first time they saw me after the attack - and that was ALL they ever said in regards to the situation!...) but not truly knowing how they feel about me (because they never had the talk with me) makes it difficult.  I tried to meet with her about it but she (unbeknownst to me) brought her husband to dinner... So no talk that night... Its especially difficult now since we live in different countries at this point. But I love this person and I have to move forward and try to continue our relationship because  I think its worth the effort...

 

And that is what it boils down to, do you feel your friendship is worth trying to save with Adrienne? I hope so, I like you both and I wish Adrienne had come to you w/ her issues instead of attacking you that way (and I'm so sorry about that Lisa...). Comes down to choice, do you move forward and mend the relationship or move on without them. I will be watching and hoping for the best for you both!

XO

 Adrienne does come across as nasty. She was always very careful the first two seasons..esp the first season. She chose her words carefully, everything was about her being aware of the cameras. She came across as in control. Somewhere in the second season I think A became comfortable with the cameras around and let loose a bit. Now we are seeing the true A come out. She looks worse and worse every single episode. I don't think she sees herself the way others do. She is still whinging about an apology, talk about immature!

Did you ever think that perhaps Bravo posted the clip? You missed the fact tha Lisa DID apologize to Adrienne the way you put it, SEVERAL times *last year*.  How many more times should she have to apologize?

@Lopez-Garcia I don't think Lisa is a bully at all. Standing up for yourself in a respectable manner, is quite commendable last I checked.

 @RoseWilde Must say kyle looked like a hog caught in those bright headlights... NOT a Deer, let's be honest. She is definitely Acting/looking "Very Guarded".... What great Karma for our unfav kyle......To be sitting in the middle of arguably the 2 most fav housewives in the franchise! & realize just how unloved you are by the fans!!  Karma Karma Karma

The saying is "between you and I".  'me' should never be used as a noun when including others. Its bad grammar and incorrect English.

 @asimpleobservation What you said is part of the reason why I'm starting to dislike Lisa. She does throw shade, and I think she's feeling her press a bit too much. If she doesn't watch it, she'll turn into Jill Zarin who thought she would always having editing (and the fans) on her side. 

 

Lisais too smart (I think) to go all the way with a "Team Lisa" T-shirt, but the shade she's throwing in her blogs pretty much is all about wanting people to be "Team Lisa."

You are wrong.  In the Queen's English, it is "between Adrienne and I".

Me should NEVER be used as a noun in conjunction with someone else.  It is very bad grammar and bad English to say "Adrienne and me".  It is simply wrong.  Sorry, but you couldn't be more wrong.  Lisa, as someone from ENGLAND (not American English) is correct.

 Wait, who is on first? What is on second and I don't know is on third. Right? No there is no right because who is on second, no what is on second. I don't know. Third base.

 

Did I get that  right?

 @JenniferMarie

 I don't think Lisa and Adrienne have a friendship that you are thinking of. Its more of a convenient friendship. Perhaps one that is more suited for tv than real life. Kind of like being with friends with someone for the duration of filming. Notice that none of these women (except Brandi and Lisa) have had contact since the reunion...that should be a hint.

 Lol. Do you know what a fanny is in England? Or perhaps you meant to write funny.
