Cast Blog: #RHOBH

The Julie Andrews Epidemic

Lisa wishes the other ladies would fess up to their occasionally foul-mouthed ways and continues to defend Brandi.

And so, as the story unfolds, friendships flounder, loyalties are challenged but move forward we must. . .

We resume the dinner in Ojai, Brandi just left the table with me holding the baby so to speak and now. It will be my turn...Kyle starts immediately questioning my defense of Brandi, well it's a slightly precarious position I must admit, as I hadn't witnessed the conversation between her and Kim. But, I was aware that something precipitated the outburst and, not feeling too enamored with Adrienne's back all night, as she cozied up to Yolanda. I had an inkling that Brandi was defending Kim. Kyle swooped down on to the fact that Brandi had called it wrong, but I was not going to join the sides of the other women and take her to task. I have been in that position and I prefer, as I have told to Kyle regarding the Adrienne situation, rather to deal with it myself. Last week in her blog Kyle says she now understood Brandi's position. . .mmm that is what I have said before. Don't judge too quickly all will become evident in the end.

I knew that Brandi should apologize for using the expletive at the table, not the sentiment, as clearly she was right. But Lord knows that these women should suddenly morph into Julie Andrews when it suits them. I have witnessed many occasions when many expletives have fallen from some of their sweet mouths. Anyway I chastised Brandi in the bathroom and checked that Kim was OK. . .Then coerced her into some sort of apology. Good enough for now. So we resume the dinner conversation, Brandi announces to the table she has a book deal. Well I am truly happy for her, as I am all too aware of the fact that financially things have been tough and she certainly has not had the same comforts and privileges as most of the other women at the table, excluding Taylor.

Taylor takes umbrage to this, again encouraged by Adrienne, as she felt Brandi had judged her previously. Look I support both of them making a living and trying to be independent so that was one I was not going to involve myself in. It is amusing as I stated before, I in no way wanted my opinion to influence Yolanda in any shape or form, but we will see as we progress how she comes to her own conclusions pretty rapidly.

The next morning you see me attempting to explain to Brandi how if she doesn't edit some of her terminologies and take the "f word" out she will continue to give them ammunition. She refers to me as a mother figure. Well maybe I am to some extent, but eleven years doesn't really count. However I won't give up trying.

The rest of the weekend was a serious giggle, with us reminding ourselves of the fun that we can all potentially share. We put aside our differences and relax. Unfortunately this plateau doesn't last and this group of women are soon to find themselves immersed in an almost unresolvable fiasco, where tempers flare, regrets are plentiful and tears are spilled.

Stay with us on this emotionally, challenging journey that continues to surprise, inspire, and often disappoint...

Love always Lisa.

PS: I want to thank some of you for your blogs last week, especially Serabbi and Glen. They were incredibly accurate, in-depth, and insightful, drawing attention to some things that are just too complicated for me to explain.

Brandi: I'm Always Here For You, Kim

Brandi focuses on the positive this week as this season's RHOBH comes to an end.

Hey Bravo Fans,

Today was a fabulous day--t was my baby Jake’s birthday. We got his favorite Oreo ice cream cake, and for our family celebration, it was perfection. I can’t believe he’s already eight. I had to hold back my tears when I realized I will never again use that number eight candle. #mommymoment

It has been a really exciting week for me. My Sonoma County chardonnay, Unfiltered Blonde, launched for pre-sales this week, and despite it being tax season, the first day alone was a huge success. Thank you! The website is up now at www.unfilteredblonde.com. The creation of the wine was an incredibly long and careful process, and I couldn’t be happier or more proud of my finished product. I’m sure you're all as excited as me that this week was the FINALE episode of BATSH-- crazy RHOBH reunion. 

I could talk about the she said, she said, she said… but let’s not and pretend we did. It’s been a long season, kind of centering on one night that really isn’t worth the attention it was given. I’m tired of it, it happened several months ago, I’m sure you’re tired of it. You know why? Because it’s old news and in the PAST! 

Eileen, your house is lovely. Sorry I said otherwise for the sake of a laugh. I really like Vincent, he is super cool, your little boy is adorable, you seem like a good stepmom, and I wish you and your family the very best.

Lisa R., I really loved you on my podcast. You made me laugh and rolled with punches. I really enjoyed our interview, and I enjoyed most of the season with you. I think that’s what I’m going to take away and forget about the rest. I think sometimes you make it harder on yourself with your Twitter feed, but I’m choosing not to engage. I really liked a side of you, and you seem to have a beautiful family.

Lisa V., I had a lot of fun with you and Ken. I will always have a special place in my heart for you guys. I wish Ken the best of health and a speedy recovery. 

Kyle, best wishes on you and your family’s endeavors. My sincerest wish is that you and Kim could be as close as you ever were in the near future.

You are a strong chica and I know your family is better for it. 

Brandi Glanville

Kim, love having you as a BFF. I’m always here for you, and I hope you are always here for me. You are a strong chica, and I know your family is better for it. You are hilarious, and I love our funny talks and text-offs. Laughter is the best medicine. I heart you.

Yo, my dear, dear Yo, I will see you soon. I love you, you are so strong and so brave! I know you are going to kick Lyme disease’s ass! Anything you need, just emoji me.

I want to thank all my supporters for always being there for me regarding all of my other endeavors, including my books, podcast, Celebrity Apprentice, app, my t-shirts, and finally my WINE and for allowing me to be me.

Ok guys, this is the big week. This is the Make*A*Wish Los Angeles Walk for Wishes Walkathon. Me and the boys pledged to try to raise $15,000--I have $12,625 so far. We need $2,375 by Friday at midnight, every dollar counts. Thank you!

I heart you all!

Xoxo
