I immediately fell in love with the llama and I knew Kyle, like me who always loves a good laugh, would be party to taking him for a little trot through the house. . .
All in all it was a pretty benign week for me as I wasn't at the race, but a couple of things come to mind. . . .
Yolanda with Gigi at the modeling shoot came off as a little controlling shall we say. However I have seen this woman with all her well-adjusted children and I know her to love, dedicate, and be the incredibly supportive mother that I would want entering the crazy world of modeling. Gigi and her, you will see as the story unfolds, have a relationship akin to Pandora's and mine.
I didn't like witnessing the slurring jabs at Brandi by Taylor and I think when Taylor sees it she will probably feel the same. Brandi made a flippant remark at Villa Blanca which she is now paying dearly for. Doesn't she realize that anything you say will be taken down and ultimately used against you!?!
Anyway, I will close off now. I value your comments and support. Till next week.
As always, Lisa seems to do the right thing. She's honest, tells it like it is, is funny, and is just an all around cool lady.
But now... can somebody tell me why Taylor is still on the show? She's so evil and vicious. She'll say anything that she thinks will put her in with the 'in' crowd. (Not that she's picking her crowd so well....) But what qualifies her as a BHHW? That zip code is critically important to her. Uh... duh... she's really a person of... words won't come to describe her. Transparency? Lack of character? ... Just a freaking low life.
So, once again, "why is she still on the show?"
I find it rather amusing that when your success continued to grow as a result of the show you quickly became the target. Sound familiar? Bethany, Theresa...
Wow! You've got a lot of supporters. Whether or not I agree with them does not change the fact that you are fun. With that said I don't think for a minute that you are incapable of being less than sincere. It won't be long before Brandi doesn't need you anymore and her "honesty" will challenge you. Just because someone appears to be "real" doesn't mean they have revealed themselves, but you already know this. Of all the women, you are the most intelligent and entertaining.
Lisa, I truly enjoy your humor, but leading a llama through Kyle's house seemed passive-aggressive on your part. You are angry with Adrienne and seem to expect that Kyle should be. Your remark that Kyle plays both sides, while true often, reveals that you want her to be blunt with Adrienne. I think she was being as gracious as she could be. You are right when you say that only you and Adrienne can fix the problem.
I laughed when you brought the llama through the house. I think it was the "best" moment of the show. You are truly tops to me.
I just re-watched last season's Reunion episodes and really don't understand you sticking up for Brandi when she admitted to slashing her ex's tires. It made you both look ridiculous. I guess you want to defend your 'new BFF' but really, the woman is a psycho. I'm actually surprised at this new friendship - Brandi's a classless social climber who has no filter and just thrives on being outrageous. She really is a mean girl and she will just drag you down as well. I get your British humor, but sometimes, the underlying digs are real and intentional, not just for comic relief.
Actually, I think you are all guilty of being mean girls, but then again, that's why most of us watch. If you were all nicey-nice to each other, the show would be Uber-Boring!!
PS - Make up with Adrienne - life's too short!
Puuulease! Brandi slashing Eddie's tires is priceless & only made me love her more! I mean really, what delicious retribution to the man who had a VERY public affair after vowing to love, HONOR & be there through it all to this darling woman who gave him two sons & stood behind him while he pursued his career. I loved how proudly she admitted it on camera, but she warned the jerk so he wouldn't get hurt! Psycho & a social climber? Maybe we're not watching the same show? Lisa is a class act in every way, & I'm quite certain she's a pretty good judge of character. She see's Brandi for the light hearted, fun loving delightful young woman that sems to be essence of Brandi & I, for one, am very happy about it. Seems they both needed a LOYAL friend & I hope their relationship helps them both in dealing with the pettiness of several of these women's antics & pot stirrng!
I don't understand you. Most women who find out they've been cheated on virtually since day one of their marriage, and with multiple women, including when pregnant with his child, well, slashing tires is the very least a woman would want to do. Haven't you ever heard of the proverbial throwing his clothes on the footpath? Whats the difference? Seriously, most women can identify with what Brandi did, and she was pretty understated compared to other women. She is far from psycho or a social climber, she is a genuine, decent person and its a shame you can't see through her trucker mouth to see the real Brandi who is the best friend one could have. I'd rather a real friend who has a trucker mouth, than a so-called 'classy' woman who doesn't swear but is a backstabber. I think you need a reality check and need to get your priorities right.
Why do YOU owe Adrienne an apology? Is it because you made a cute joke about her shoes? Which, by the way, do look like hoofs--just like everyone else's shoes. Her accusation that you sold stories to magazines was so egregious I couldn't believe it. If anyone sells stories, look to those who need the money. As Adrienne knows, you hardly fall into that group. Maybe you could forgive her since she's going through a divorce now but I'm not sure how painful that might really be for her. She wasn't shy about showing her disdain for Paul. Too bad, but I'm sure his next wife will feel lucky. I always like him.
I thought it was really nice to show up for Portia party, even if it was for a short time. Isn't Portia just the cutest thing ever. I love the way she said Darling to you with the cute voice. Bye Darling X0X0
Lisa- Kyle has shown you her many faces, when people show you who they are the first time believe them. You have a big heart and make allowances for people who are not deserving. Your humor will see you through the tough times.
Dump Kyle stick with Brandi you know Brandi doesn't sit on the fence she says it straight. I would appreciate that friendship much more than two faced Kyle.... funny she said Brandi was two faced. Keep being wonderful you!
Lisa, you are fabulous and a wonderful friend. You're honest, straight forward, direct and fair. If you really don't know Kyle's position, it's this: she splits herself on the fence. Her new wardrobe is: Turncoat. As long as she is not the object of an argument, she'll gladly get in the middle to direct traffic. Her inaction and lack of commentary speak volumes.
Lisa, I don't understand Kyle's position either. Last season, Taylor and Russell had Kyle and Mauricio over to dinner and discussed suing Camille and you. While it was later discussed with the other ladies about Camille, NOTHING was ever mentioned that you were discussed also...Hmmmmm. Wonder why? If she was such a good friend she should have immediately called you and told you. Why didn't she? I think you might need to rethink your friendship with her and as far as Adrienne is concerned, she owes you a BIG apology....
Am I the only one who notices how completely silent Adrienne is? Yes, we all know she is going through a divorce, it's not a death, it's a divorce. I hope she reads all these comments on her contemporaries blogs and smacks herself in the head and says WTF have I done.
@LornaB I dunno, divorce is right up there with death, so I guess the question is , do you get out of doing your homework (blogs). With Kim, Taylor, Adrienne (RHOM), etc....sometimes they just go off the radar. I would ! But I hate it when they do....stuck in that catch 22:)
Lisa - Bravo for trotting the llama through Kyle's house...you looked very cool doing it too! Yeah, Adrienne sent you a LOG (I mean flowers too ;) but I don't think she's coming from a good place. What happened to her? She did fall off her stilleto and hit her head? I never knew Adrienne was so bad. So sad. Watch your back though, she's acting pretty strange.
Lisa, Just keep on being you. That was so mean of Andrianne to accuse you especially knowing it was on camera. Then for her to send that awful flower delivery during your party shows what a mean spirit she has. She doesn't deserve your kindness. I love seeing you and your husband on the show. You are so sweet. Don't let Taylor take advantage of your sweet kind personality. She has an agenda.
Love you, Love you, The move has been quite kind to you...How is it possible you are even more graceful, brilliant & stylish then before!! To further high light the 2 faces of kyle, During the shopping excursion, as kyle was fixing adrienne's collar she stated, "I think she (Lisa) feels like she was wronged by you...& this honestly is your punishment" How kind of her to state that on your behalf....Regarding Brandi, during kyle's phone call to you, she realizes Brandi is there, her changing facial expressions spoke volumes about how she really feels about her(damn those cameras)..... Only honest thing about her is what A TRUE FALSE friend she is...
Hi Lisa, YES that was an ugly trunk ..I mean flowers(LOL). Adrienne ows you an apology for what she said. I think she has a problem with you because you have a mind of your own and when your daughter wanted to throw a party for bachlorette at another hotel, Adrienne took offense at that and never let it go. Clearly you and your daughter had a better time! I can't wait to see how this plays out. Fan Lisa and Brandi all the way!!
I can understand if Kyle thought you didn't own Adrienne an apology why she would tell her "Don't hold your breath".Makes sense actually not to want her to waste time waiting for something she knows won't and shouldn't happen. My problem is how in the world Kyle thought that being at Portia's party would have prevented any unpleasantness from happening. Has ANYTHING ever stopped it in the past?? Yours was the only real way to prevent Portia's party from being spoiled.
I think you are waking up and seeing and hearing the Kyle I have seen and heard and would Never want as a friend of mine.
I think you were "woke up" after seeing what took place at the low class game party. How and what Kyle told you was NOT THE TRUTH. And you seeing and hearing what took place with your own ears and eyes, was your wake up call.
None of this would have taken place if you were there.. None.. however, the real and true Kyle reared her head and the true Kyle was seen..
I still ?? what took place with Camilla and Kyle. I feel that Kyle said it and then as you know from watching last week, she lied.
Brandi rocks and she is true. And yes, she's young and as we know, all steps are learning. Shame on the mean girls making an issue about "sleeping with everyone".. hello, it was a joke, it was an ice breaker.. it was young blood speaking..
And I'm seeing nasty with poor Taylor. She's spinning down.. what else is new.
Keep being YOU Lisa.. You are true...
HOORAY!!!! LOVE IT!!! Brandi turned 40 the other day. Love, absolutely love to hear that 40 is the "new" young.
Love you Lisa + Brandi too + I'm now feeling so young :O) absolutely + truly!
Thank God there is one intelligent person in this group!! (I'm not dissing Yolanda- she just isn't part of the past dust-ups.) Lisa- you are S-M-A-R-T not to want anyone's else's interference in any sit down with Adrienne. Kyle is a nosy busy-body who wants more attention and I think she was instrumental in the decision for Adrienne to say what she did at the reunion show to begin with. Kyle wants to do damage control at this point. In reviewing the past shows, there is Taylor/Shana and Kyle discussing how Lisa supposedly sold stories to some magazine. Now Adrienne is saying it at the reunion? Why? Is it because they banded together and decided she would bring it up as she is a strong person? Kyle already had another axe to grind with Lisa, so her bringing it up would make her look more like a bully.
You don't need anyone in your life whom you can't trust or just simply don't care for. It's your life to live and not the viewers. Adrienne didn't make some flippant comment about what you were wearing, she made a vile accusation about your character. In this episode it seems that she's the one who's not busy enough to move on and she's needs to acknowledge the gravity of what she said.
Not everyone's going to understand but you're a wonderful lady and you have to do what you feel will keep you happy and keep your life drama and stress free.
Lisa, you are great..stand up for yourself. As far as Kyle, even though she is younger than Kim. she reminds me of my older sister, who always made me feel like crap(yes, I know NO ONE can make you feel that way but yourself.) I agree with Kim, my kids are 25 and 22, and no way would they want to be at a 4 yr. olds party. Would I go, yes, but my kids are in college and working full-time..Kyle is WAY too hard on Kim, maybe being a stand-in for Kim when they were younger, is rearing it's ugly head now. I like Brandi, she pulls no punches..
You're my favorite BH housewife, Lisa. You've got true class and dignity, a kind heart, and you're no fool either.
Kyle is a two faced, untrustworthy troublemaker, I'm glad you're keen enough to be aware of that. Kudos for turning down her meddling invitation.
Taylor continues to be a fool - just plain ridiculous that she's making such a big deal of Brandi's remark that was obviously said in jest. Methinks it stems from extreme Brandi-jealousy maybe? no doubt.
Adrienne is being really dense to not realize that she seriously crossed the line with her accusations of you at the reunion. Her minimizing it to the level that she is speaks volumes about her character. I'm glad you've chosen not to continue your friendship with her until she sincerely apologizes. You certainly deserve it! As usual, you're handling the situation with extreme class, dignity and strength.
I hope this season fares better for you than last season did, and you find that the friends you have chosen are true. I guess you can consider that season a pretty good "housecleaning" experience.
Lisa Darling! you and Brandy rock! you two being good friends brings just the right blend to the show.....Adrienne has lost her flipping mind for some reason . You and Ken are living the American dream .....will be watching ..Miss Val
You don't understand? I think you are making a joke there...cause you have Kyle's number figured out. Most of us do. You are famous and loved, thats why! Look how she treats her much more famous sister! Kyle has major envy issues, which makes her controlling. Her constant eye rolling, and petty attitude is a front for a very unfortunate but "real" inferiority complex. It must not have been easy being raised in a household with an older sister who was famous. Now Kyle must make up for that, and be the center of attention especially at the expense of others.
I'm sure she lost a true friend in you forever. Its quite sad. It looks as though she has lost her nieces and Kim as well. She needs to do some waking up, self awareness would be a good start, along with giving Kim the house back that is rightfully hers and her childrens future. Its unfortunate....I really want to pull for Kyle, but am finding her hard to watch anymore...But you, never! You light up the cameras
1) Love the way you put Kyle on the spot in your blog. Sometimes Kyle can't handle being in the middle. 2) I can't believe you were bold enough to walk a wild animal through Kyle's house. Talk about treating others the way you want to be treated. 3) Taylor is making herself look crazy for talking about something that happened two episodes ago. Taylor get a life! 4) Great sunglasses! 5) Show us more of your fabulous closet.
Lisa - I adore you and am so happy you and Brandi (whom I really like) have formed a friendship. I believe she will always have your back; she's a very honest, loyal person like you!
Taylor on the other hand is manipulative, mean and jealous! I can't believe she was drunk at Portia's birthday party, spending the whole afternoon twisting Brandi's words, spreading gossip to anyone who would listen! She came off as a low class drunk! You were so kind to befriend Taylor last season against your better judgement. I hope this season you see she's not the victim she portrays - hardly!
Kyle is disingenuous and is very lucky that you gave her a second chance after the reunion. I'd watch my back with her! She tries too hard to be everyone's friend while always making snarky remarks behind most of the women's back.
Lastly, you look more gorgeous than ever and are by far the most beautiful housewife, inside and out!
I hope you give it to Adrienne just as she deserves. You are so right to not want Kyle there. I can tell she's jealous of you and will jump at the opportunity to gang up on you in her true bully style!! You are absolutely the classiest and most beautiful of all the BH housewives. I marvel at just how gorgeous you are!!!
i love you very much lisa. you are my favorite. i honestly do not even watch the real housewives, any of the franchise until i chanced upon you while flipping through channels! :) be careful of kyle.
I LOVE YOU LISA!!!! YOU ARE MY FAVEEEEE HOUSEWIFE of all!!! You can do no wrong in my eyes! :)
I think Andy should a couple of us bloggers for 10 min. On the reunion show to ask questions.ect. .
Mazie I have always said that. I think there should be some type of contest where the ultimate prize is to fly to LA and have a 10 min segment of questions.
Beckymgrey Mazie That would be awesome. They could even do something where people can pose questions on a blog and the questions that receive the most 'likes' will be asked.
Love watching you on the show; without you and Brandi, they would have to rename this to the Fake Bitches of Beverly Hills. Also glad that it seems you are starting to have your eyes opened about Vyle, aka, Kyle (Sorry to the viewer I stole that tag from, but I love it!) I am kind of on the fence about Yolanda at this point; I hope she turns out to be on Team Lisa and Brandi in terms of being real and someone you can enjoy watching. It would be nice to have another person to like on this show. When the RH shows first came out, it used to be that I liked almost everyone with the exception of one or two tops per show that I did not. As time has went on, some have dropped their representatives or changed and some of the new ones seem to come from the bottom of the barrel.
I believe both of you and Adrienne er good persons. I think it sad to see you and her have a problem to each other like this. Nothing come good from this kind of thing. Make peace is better than remain the war. I really hope that both of you can talk and laugh together again.
norway but some things are hard to forgive. If somebody can slander you like that and try to humiliate you on TV then were they really even your friend in the first place? Lifes too short to have phoney friends who throw you under the bus.
I think Kyle just wants to remain judicious and doesn't want to hurt Adrienne's feelings, but it is clear to everyone that Adrienne is the one who falsely accused you of something, and therefore she needs to apologize. I think Kyle should just stay out of it and let you and Adrienne work it out in your own time, if you all decide to do so. If not, so what? Why is is such a big issue for people to NOT be friends? The world won't stop just because you aren't holding hand and singing kumbaya!
I love Brandi, but you are absolutely right about her flippant remark. She says crazy things without thinking sometimes, and I think it is hilarious, but not everyone takes it that way. I think it is ridiculous that Taylor would continue to repeat it to others, especially at a child's birthday party. Taylor obviously still has some issues to overcome. In some ways I feel badly for her, but in other ways, she just annoys the crap out of me!
You, however, are always my favorite! Keep running around people's houses with llamas! I can't wait to see Kyle get you back for that one! ;)
I'm curiuos to see where your friendships go this year.
You and Adrienne will never be genuine friends. I blame her for that. She is jealous. She's smart, but not wise I think. You are both.
Kyle can't be trusted. She's not loyal. I love Brandi, but wow, the lack of a filter is a little scary. Can you really trust her with your privacy?
Taylor is not genuine. I wouldn't trust her either. She's intimidated by you.
Kim... well, I don't wish anyone ill, but she makes me dumber for having to watch anything to do with her.
Yolanda seems like a class act. Time will tell on that. I can't imagine her loosing her cool and behaving the way most of the women (except you) do.
You are my 13 y.o. daughter's favorite. I use the HWs shows to teach her how NOT to behave!! Except use you an example of grace and class. : )
Kyle was not being two-faced. She's just trying to stay out of it - isn't that what you wanted, Lisa?
LatinaMiel staying out of it by trying to organise get togethers for them? Not quite. Lisa had to directly tell her to stay out of it. She didnt ask her to take sides. All Lisa expects from Kyle is simple honesty. Saying one thing to Adrienne and another thing to the camera was just disengenuous. Thats what Lisa has an issue with after seeing the show for the first time. Its not like Kyle doesnt know that Adrienne will eventually see her confessional on the show so why not just say it to her face in the first place?
