Lisa Vanderpump

Lisa shares more on her courtship with Ken, her hesitance about Warren's relationship, and returning to France.

on Feb 25, 20130

Bonjour. . .How I loved this episode, we spent many years between France, Monte Carlo, and England so always relish the chance to return. My schedule of late unfortunately hasn't allowed it. The last three years for businesses to survive and prosper we have had to keep on our toes so to speak!

One of the many reasons that I fell in love with Ken was the kindness he exuded. We met when Warren was 15 and I was 21. As he explained he was married briefly for two years at 19, to a young wife who wasn't prepared for the challenging job of being a mother. So he then fought for custody of their only child. He worked many jobs laboring, night jobs, anything to provide for his son, and, with the help of his mother, he raised an educated, well-mannered young man.

Life was hard at the beginning. But with sheer tenacity and some sort of innovative business sense, he created a life for his family (including his parents) that otherwise they wouldn't have had.

Warren is very much his fathers son -- ambitious, incredibly family oriented, and someone to be proud of.

People have often asked me why I would sign up for a reality show as if it was some sort of sentence, but when I view episodes forever documented like this I rest assured that we made the right choice.

You are my favorite housewife! Please tell me what kind of dog Giggy is.  Sharon Osborne just had her dog from your breeder on The Talk.  They are adorable!  What is the breed??

Lisa I love your new show.  You shine.  You are always classy, never caddy, never causing problems and accepting the losers that do.  Love you!

Lisa, stop the meeting with Kyle, she is a two face all american girl who needs the attention.  She is friends with Faye the Fugly, Adrienne the Additive lie and magazine reporter of gossip, Kyle the coyote who is a nag about her feelings and doesn't care about what she says to hurt others and Camille the Cameleon.  Eventually, Camille will need friends again.  Her lawyer boyfriend will not marry her because she has two children and would not want to be involved in a divorce that is unsettling from New York to California.  All these american women (I am one) are all about themselves and nothing else.  You have so many friends that Kyle does not want to lose that with you, yet she only looks out for herself.  Kim on the other hand is as whiney as an old goose, who is not even in a comfort zone with her alcoholism and already is a preacher to Taylor about it.  I think that Kim is not only dragging her "Menopausal" personality, but the crying she and Kyle go through .... someone pleaseeeeeee shut the faucet off it is ridiculous!   I hope Camille will be gone from the show as well as newbie Marisa who continues to whine about her dead father in law of 9months ago.  No pity here as that is an act on her part...how dare she play victim on Brandi's texting.  Here goes Adrienne again, and Faye the uninvited coyote that arrives at your house party more than once.  Does Kyle even know what loyalty and class is?  She knows that you do not care for Faye why does she continue to bring her pack of fuglies?

 

Adrieene the numb one who opens her big mouth and sticks her foot in and no body is home between those ears at all.  She cannot blame anyone about her marriage because we the audience have seen the way she treats Paul... Good for Paul, I hope that you are on speaking terms with him.  I like you, Brandi, Yolanda and Taylor (even if she is a loco taco sometime)

 

Time for me to go and let Kyle have it now... Keep that smile and I love watching  you on DWTS!!!!  Ohh... but you must've pissed off many that you are on DWTS and all eyes are on you and Gigster!

Lisa,

I would so love to hear the story of how you and Ken met.  You have such affection for each other, and a standard for people to follow.

I loved your trip to Europe, Monaco and Paris..that was like reliving my trips there.  When you were in San Tropez visiting Ken's son, Warren, though, I don't see how you put up with those nasty comments from Warren's wife..Sue?  What a b--tch..and Warren just laughed at her.  He should have said something to her about doing that..maybe he did, in private.  After all, this was the father of her husband.  I predict that marriage won't last.

After getting back to the States, and your "housewarming/renewal of your vows.." party, I cannot believe that knowing how you feel about Faye Resnick , that she was invited again, or did Kyle insist again that she be invited..?  I certainly hope that Bravo is not considering having her for a housewife, and that is the reason she was asked..that would be a huge mistake.  She is totally a b--tch", and who is she to think she can go around telling people what is wrong with them, and especially what she said to Brandi, which was unforgivable.  She is so stupid, that she doesn't know when she is not wanted, and just keeps showing up and getting bad press from everyone.  For instance when she interrupted the conversation that Marisa Zanuck was having with Brandi and Yolanda..and they even asked her to leave, telling her that she was not needed in that conversation!  Faye Resnick thinks she is such hot stuff, and that she can go around telling people off like that..it is the height of rudeness, especially when she said those horrible things to Lisa at her own house!  She is certainly not a lady..ladies don't do things like that.  I remember reading a book about her a long time ago, when she was involved in the OJ thing, and they said that she had a cocaine addiction problem..wonder if she still has one..to say and do the things she does?  I just don't like anything about her at all, and I will really be upset and disappointed if she is.  I am happy to finally lose Camille and Taylor..they were both drama queens..and now Dana.  I hope Bravo makes some better choices of new housewives.  I think Yolanda was a great one..and she is a true blue person.  Not so sure about Marisa Zanuck..I don't like the way she denigrates her husband..most men wouldn't put up with that..Maybe the only reason she is with him is for the money??  I don't like the way she presented the texts from Bransi to everyone..that is pretty backstabbing, I think.

Brandi's worst problem is her mouth...that is her worst enemy..but she can't seem to stop doing that..and I still like her a lot..she is refreshing if she just didn't use all those four-letter words.  They are unbecoming to her.  But then you, Lisa, have told her this and she doesn't seem to want to change.

Well, life goes on in Beverly Hills, and we haven't gotten to the drama filled finale yet..More to come.  Lisa seems to stay focused, no matter what..and love her "Vanderpump Rules"...and now her stint on DWTS!  You go, girl!

Love the class you and Ken show on this show....As for Kyle, she and Mauricio will always go for whom they think will make them some money....Just because shes related by marriage to the Hiltons, she thinks more of herself than warranted...I would not trust her at all....

Lisa you are absolutely justified in holding a grudge - I also am honest, open and sincere with everyone and when they do not support me or are not there for me or turn on me as KYLE did with you I too would be hurt and absolutely hold a grudge  - she owes you an apology

Love you Lisa ! Love you Ken ! Can't wait to see you dance Lisa : ). Just signed up so taking advantage of the opportunity to support you. Totally on "your side" regarding Kyle's lack of understanding what she did - or rather did not do - to be a good friend. She is missing the point. Love Brandy's honesty and your support of her. And, don't even get me started on Adrienne - her true colors were already showing by how she spoke to her husband before we all learned via the celeb news she had moved on. Keep doing you !

Lisa, the way you speak about Ken is an example to us all of how we should honor our husbands with our words. Your relationship is so beautiful. I hope you rub off on Taylor and Brandy so they  pick up on the qualities a good man should have.

Love you Lisa.  hate to hear you are doing that really stupid show, DWS.  You are not a has been or a wanna bee so why go there?  Oh well, good luck.  Love you and Brandi and Ken.

Richards sisters are really into themselves. Dont like Taylor, she is a hanger on and Andrein showed her true colors at last yrs reunion.  Take care, you are a class act for sure!

As a quiet observer, I am under the assumption that you have reckoned with your feelings for Kyle, however have come to accept that underneath the surface Kyle harbors true "mean girl" feelings and has in fact during the past reunion plotted against you and numerous times sat back to enjoy an attack on you. Her smirks, silence and deliberate comments as well as her new victim stance deserve nothing but your honesty and acknowledgement that she is not trustworthy,simply not a friend. Kudos to you! I enjoy watching one of the few insightful, honest and stable persons in this show...Cheers!

Lisa, thank you for sharing some of your history with us.  You have a lovely family.  I do agree with Kyle that you hold a grudge, but none of us are perfect.  I often hold grudges too.  I think that usually means that you lead with an open heart more than others and when you are hurt, it is a genuine assault to your heart and is not forgotten easily.  I wish nothing but the best for you and your family.

Just love Lisa and Ken, they seem to be so completely in love with each other and their life together! It's so sweet to watch a couple genuinely love and care about each other especially in the eyes of so many viewers!

Amazing.  It takes a REAL and classy woman to stand up and admit that they are wrong.  Many women could take a lesson from you.

Lisa, I am still confused about your relationship with Brandi.  You are a very bright woman and you clearly know how to keep your friends close and your enemies closer.  You said that you have always found Brandi to be a loyal friend.  When Cedric was so clearly disloyal to you and your family, he left your house and moved in with Brandi to help her with her sons (or to crash in her bedroom).  How does that qualify Brandi as being loyal to you?  

 

You are a business woman and clearly recognized the fact that Brandi could not even give a simple opening presentation to her girl friends about pole dancing without  your prompting.  You know that Adrienne (whether you are currently friends or enemies) is also a bright business woman who is clearly capable of running a corporation without using foul language when a lifted eyebrow accomplishes the same effect.  Brandi can only make a point by telling people to "shut the f* up" or by calling a gentleman like Mauricio filthy street names.  When you said in a battle of wits between Brandi and Adrienne that Adrienne was unarmed, if you were going for the punchline, it worked.  I couldn't help but laugh.  Of course you could count on the fact that Brandi is too stupid to realize she was the butt of that one-liner so I do congratulate you.

 

However, given Brandi's personal history (she thought her husband really loved her until 'The Other Woman" stole him) ,  she has made it very clear that she wants to be the other woman and steal Ken from you.  It is pretty clear that you have a strong, sophisticated, working relationship with your husband and the odds of her succeeding are poor to non-existent.  It still doesn't look nice to see her sending him flowers and referring to him as her second husband.  It sounds even worse to have her constantly refer to Ken as her boyfriend, it has gone on long enough and is time for you to put a stop to it.  She brings her chorus line behind her to smother him with kisses and then she LICKS HIS HAIR - Please make it stop.  It is sweet and charming when Ken builds you a swing.  It is obvious you repay him by allowing him to play with the girls.  Brandi just has to be told if she wants to continue to play with Ken she needs to recognize her position in the hierarchy as the pole dancer in the corner and Not as Ken's Girlfriend,

Lisa love the wit, the sista girl booty, the heels, beautiful clothes and you calling a spade a spade and not letting Kyle get close again to speak disrespectfully about you in private. Keep doing you girl and surround yourself with only true friends.

As much as I like you Lisa, I have had to stop watching Vanderpump Rules because of Stashi.  Can't stand that -----!  She is so the opposite of what you and your daughter represent.  I am very surprised she is a friend of your daughter.  Dump her butt and I bet Vanderpump Rules will be one of the best shows on Bravo.  Stashi needs to be on New Jersey Housewives because that is who she acts like!

Lisa you are such an amazing woman i admire you so much. You have a great marriage (Ken is hilarious and such a sweet man), wonderful children and work extremely hard. RHOBH was the only one i watched until Vancouver started, i love both shows but you are my fave of all the housewives by far! I live in New Zealand so i watch all the episodes online and Vanderpump Rules was great, i really  do hope it will come back for many more seasons VERY entertaining, i was planning on moving to LA in my early twenties but was unable to as i have been very ill the past few years (i spent long periods of time in hospital and at home in bed so tv became a big part of my day to day life it was a great distraction and i became hooked on your show it made me laugh) and now i don't think i can get a visa to the states because of my age so have had to change my plans and go to the UK hopefully later this year, i would have loved to work at SUR! I am the same age as your daughter Pandora i wish my mum was more like you! I can't wait to watch you on DWTS Never change :) x

You are fantastic Lisa! I think you look like a doll, the prettiest of all of the women on the show! Quintessenial with your fondness for pink, your love of jiggy and the kids and your rock solid man to which it appears you two have a really cool relationship. Im kinda happy to see distance btwn you and kyle, i think she starts fires only to disappear when it needs extinguishing. Your great!

Lisa, I was thrilled to hear of your newest challenge on DWTS, and I look forward to seeing yet another side of you. Your attitude towards others and life in general, are a great inspiration to many of us, myself included. Thank you.

I have to say at first I didn't care for you much due to some of the comments edited to show you had a sharp tongue with Adrienne......in the end I now see that it was only your sense of humor and I can see how jealous Adrienne really is of you (and others) of which made your comments more serious to her, but in all were said by you in a humorous manner.  I like you very much and wish you well in all of your endeavors.

Lisa- I just want to say you really have class. I just watched the episode where you and Ken went to ST Ttopez and visited Ken's son and wife. Warren's wife was utterly RUDE to you. She repeatedly made snotty comments obviously directed at you. She is ugly and obviously jealous of you. I personally wanted to slap her right through the TV. You maintained composure and have never publicly or on the show made a derogatory comment about her as far as I've seen. That, to me, shows a lot of class. Bravo Lisa! You were never inappropriate; she was way out of line! First she said as soon as you arrived and stated you were in town for 3 days, she replied "We have to deal with you for that long?"  I was shocked. Then, when you all went to the restaurant and Warren said the place looked beautiful as ever and you jokingly asked "where you just talking about me? Did you just say I look as beautiful as ever?" and she snottily said "Oh no definitely not!" I thought 'ok maybe it was a joke.' But then she has the audacity to say right in front of you and Ken after Ken stated you both were leaving the next morning, "Thank God! It's been so draining." Yet they brag about going out on the town with other people. What's so draining about your quiet visit? How dare she treat Warren's mother with that much disrespect and disdain. Warren needs to stand up and tell her to shut-up! She's ugly, bitchy and not anywhere worth what she THINKS! I guess money doesn't buy class! I'm not rich and yet even I don't treat people I don't care for with such disgust. Lisa you certainly don't need that kind of treatment. Bravo for not replying to it. You're beautiful!

Lisa you were the only reason I started watching Beverly Hills . I like women who like myself use their common sense  to get through the day.Best of luck on  DWTS  because you have one of the best partners to work with.  I know Ken and Jiggy will be watching  front row center  and I'll be glued to the set every week.

Well said, Lisa! You are my favorite on the show. I enjoy watching each week and I have watched since day one and I have to say that I love how you have handled certain situations; with style and grace. I am a married mother of four beautiful children and needless to say my life is very chaotic so I look forward to taking that time each week to sit and watch your shows...Housewives and Vanderpump Rules. I do not usually watch Dancing with the Stars but I will be watching this season! Good luck with all of your endeavors and "break a leg"

Hi Lisa, we are watching you from UK. First I was so in to this show, then my husband ( a proper English man) has started watching and now he enjoys the show with me. This episode was so nice and almost drama free. Seeing Ken's face lighting up when he saw his grandson, was something that nearly brought tears to our eyes; what's nice man Ken is. He was radiant with happiness. Seeing him smile so much only says how much family means to him- well done for his wonderful achievement of raising such a well rounded son. You are so right when you talk about children's choices- we are going thru something similar. "Losing" our then 16 year old daughter to a much older man was devastating. We too, did not stand for their relationship. We have learnt the same lesson as you and Ken did; the time lost out no one can give back. It is very fortunate that it all worked out for you guys, while we are still waiting to see what the future brings. I won't keep you any longer.... My husband and I are huge fans of you and Ken and looking forward in seeing more of you guys in the future. Xxx

 @salesagent2001@aol.com Even if Kyle apologized to Lisa a thousand times, I would advise Lisa not to become close to her again.  A child star (and I say "star" lightly), seems to have many issues that make it impossible to have true friendships.

Lisa was not sweating any of it. That's that British humor. Lisa and Ken and his son's issues had been dealt with many many years ago (according to Lisa). Oh I'm sure there's a few 'dodgy' topics they avoid (like AGE), but overall, Lisa and Ken seemed thrilled for their visit with them.

@cristina.donovan You are fortunate to have a husband who will watch shows where the women cause so much drama and argue so much, and not want to divorce the tv....and you in the process..there are not many men that can tolerate that much unreasonable sanity, and when womens voices get high pitched, their ears are as sensitive as their furry counterpart, the dog. They want to flee the room, house, neighborhood. Some men would resort to a stiff drink, while others would seek comfort in another room to watch a cooking show on a PBS station...you are one lucky woman....seriously
