Lisa Vanderpump

Lisa reflects on Faye, her marriage, and Adrienne's time as a Housewife.

on Mar 26, 20130

So it's time to say goodbye. As we wrap up this third season, I can hardly believe the tumultuous ride we have all taken!

Oh dear I thought, when I viewed this episode, with Faye accusing me of controlling what Brandi says then furthering the analogy that Kyle used saying having a friendship with me was like playing chess. I hardly know Faye. She only is ever present as Kyle's sidekick and this year as a "friend of the Housewives." Also insinuating that Brandi was responsible for the breakup of Paul and Adrienne's marriage -- I wondered what on earth is wrong with this woman? Always inserting herself into the midst of any possibly awkward situation just to capture screen time.

I do agree with Yolanda that for Adrienne to arrive at my house seemed slightly inappropriate. The fact that we were renewing our vows was the worst kept secret, and I imagine she knew that. The relationship has never recovered to what it used to be. She should've stayed home.

Aside from shenna's problem with nobody calling her -- she took charge of Kyle's party...you have a DEFINITE problem if you rely on staccy and jax -- they are just not good employees.  They take advantage of everything they can when nobody is supervising them.  If I was a business owner, friend of my daughter or not, one of them has to go, if not both!  You are going to lose money with those two (typical rich brats?) and you are going to have major problems in your restaurant if you continue to let them work there.

im sorry but Scheena  does not have a blog right now -- and her attitude is stupid -- its DENTAL STUFF, not Life-changing anything!  Jeeez, how stupid!

Am watching new season -- Lisa, that Kristin (?) should be fired -- she is in the SERVICE business and should NOT talk to her boss that way no matter what.  If she doesn't like you, then LEAVE.  Her Rudeness will not get her any acting/modeling jobs in the future.

Lisa,

 

I love you, as do most viewers and I can't believe Brandi would turn on you. I actually am not surprised but I really hope Bravo kicks her off the show now. Watch your back and don't trust any of these ladies. Good luck!!

It really reveals a lot about who someone really is when you see the people they choose to be close with.  Birds of a feather.  You can fool people only to a certain point.  Just saying.

Mrs Vanderpump, I have just finished watching the latest season of RHOBH. I am also a Brit and I always tell it how it is. I don't know much about any of the ladies on the show, but one thing I do know is that you need to keep away from Brandi. She has a hidden agenda and if I were you I would stay well away from her. Do you really want to be associated with someone with such a trashy mouth ? Kyle is your true friend and you should get closer to her again. :-)

Lisa I absolutely adore you. I love everything about you. You are classy, intelligent and so beautiful. You radiate elegance and style. My partner now calls me 'Lisa' as I talk about you often and what goes on with Real Housewives. I even have 'Lisa' shoes lol. I love, love, love watching you and listening to what you have to say. You are my mentor. I look up to you. Stay true to form lovely lady - you're the best X

Love you, Brandi and Yolanda! Class act, true friendship. I can't for the life of me figure out why you didn't have Faye thrown out on her butt at your party. I also love Vanderpump Rules and Brandi's boyfriend Ken, a true gentleman.

Lisa, You need to be careful with Brandi, she's using you cuz you have money and all the things she wishes she could have. Brandi is a loud mouth disrespectful tramp. She doesn't even repect herself much less anyone else. So watch out I know you don't want to see it know but she's only there to get what she can get. She's like a stray dog in heat and if you feed her she'll never leave. Sorry Lisa but its true.

You are in HAWAII, and you complain about the "cheap" transport airplane.  Sickening.  Of course, the joke is really on me.  It's not likely I'll ever go to Hawaii, and I'm also watching RHWBH re-runs on a Friday night.  LAME.

Hi Lisa,

 

I watched some of the vanderpump rules re runs today. It got me thinking how I shouldn't of posted what I posted in March some rude things after watching the reunion of real housewives. I want to apologize and hope that maybe you missed that post or even this one for that matter. But I just want to say that I really think you're the best cast member on the show and you're very entertaining to watch and deserve to be on reality tv because you give off such a great persona of what a true beverly hills housewive really is. I think you're hilarious, intelligent, and beautiful! I was just disgruntled with Brandi on the reunion episode but I understand you two are close friends and understand each other a way that viewers can't really see. Thanks for being such an awesome individual that you are!

Sincerely,

Myra

Hi Lisa,

I'm from Long Island, NY.  My husband and I were at your restaurant, Villa Blanca on our 10th anniversary on March 22, 2013 and the next night we went to Sur.  Both were beautiful.  Congratulations.  I had a picture taken with you at Villa Blanca and at Sur you said hello to my husband.  He was thrilled.  I watch your show all the time and love you.  You're gorgeous, smart and funny.  Faye should be ashamed of herself.  She has no business being on the show.  Thank you for letting me and all your viewers come into your home and your life.  You're classy.  Fondest Regards, a faithful Long Island viewer, Gail

Dear Lisa, It was so rude of Faye to attend your beautiful party and treat you, the hostess, in such an offensive, and brass way. Just as rude was it of her to matriculate through the party, insulting your guests. Hopefully, for her sake, as it was such embarrassing manners, it was to ensure Bravo using the footage she was in, she kept it dramatic or vile, either one will do...... You are a joy to watch, you always keep things fun and classy. I love you, Ken, Pandora, Max, and dogs. You are the best part of RHWBH'S.

I think Faye is so awesome and right in everything she has said about Brandi and her interpretations of situations -- she must be a really grounded, spiritual, and enlightened being.  Brandi is a foul-mouth, low class, white trash and she will always be that no matter how many gucci purses she owns.  She is vapid, dumb, and nasty.  You and Kyle were so great together.  I will miss you two together.  Too bad you're choosing to be BFF's with the white trash and that snobby, condescending dutch girl who at the end of day was really a dutch trash and she has a lot in common with Brandi (different continents, but they come from the same thing).  I will miss you not being bitter and angry and just having wonderful fun with Kyle.

Lisa, I've wrote you a few times previously. You and Ken are so pleasant to watch. I have been married going on thirty five years, and yes it is real work and something to be celebrated. As far as Faye, only comment is Faye who? Hopefully gone from the show.

ok.  I hope Lisa is able to see this and answers me back... I LOVE the tile you have in the bar area at SUR....  The white/silver subway tile.  Where did you get that and do you have the maker/model number?

The only three people with integrity is yourself, Yolanda and Brandi . . . the three of you have the most important quality a friendship needs to thrive -- HONESTY and being above-board with each other always. It was comical to see Faye Resnick's face when Brandi told her she wasn't wanted in the conversation. She didn't know what to say

You and Ken are awesome role models and examples to the other generations! Thank you! My hubby and I have been married 32 yrs. (April) and I understand everything you said about marriage, raising kids, etc We have three grandkids and one more due in November. Wait til those grandbabies come! You will love it! So much fun! And when you get tired, you can leave or send them home! It's wonderful. God bless you and may He continue to bless your marriage, family and business enterprises!

Faye is pretty lame on the show.  

 

That aside, you seriously need to chill on Kyle.  And stop being friends with Brandi, that girl is coo-coo-ca-choo.  

Its so obvious how she manipulates things.  She is fun to be around, but the girl is a rock.  Do you ever have interesting conversations with her?  Aside from the shtick of hitting on Ken she really isn't that exciting.

Hi Lisa, I'm loving your new house and so happy that you have Brandi and Yolanda as friends. Whenever there is trouble Kyle always seems to be nearby and her choice of Faye as a friend speaks volumes to me, Stay as you are. Looking forward to the next series xxx

Hi Lisa, I just wanted to say I loved your vows renewal. 30 years is definitely something to be proud of. My husband and I just got home to Australia after having just renewed our vows on our 35th Anniversary last month while we were in Las Vegas on an extended holiday. I know how much it meant to me and my husband, and it was also my husbands idea just as it was yours to renew our vows and I thank whatever god there may be for giving me such a wonderful man to share my life with as I know you must. I couldn't believe firstly that that horrible woman Faye came into your home and was so rude and insulting to you and then that Adrienne did something so déclassé as to arrive at your home late, not speak to either you or Ken, make herself the centre of attention, then leave again without speaking to either of you at all. The woman is such an attention seeker, who lives her life in the press and takes no responsibility for anything she does. She has never had to live a single minute in the real world and has no idea of what real problems are. Sticking with each other during the lows is what makes the highs so fantastic! For most of us it is the rest of life, the middle that makes it real!

This is off-topic but  I hear rumors of you being friends with Kim Zolciak...not that you'd ever read this, but she's so not in your league at all! Brandi is enough it terms of unclassy friends, you don't want to pull yourself down! If you hang out with anyone from RHOA, Cynthia is a good choice. She's classy. Nene isn't so classy  but she's good too and much but better than Kim. Just my opinion.

My dear Lisa, You are by far and always will be my favorite housewife! You have so much class and you are so genuine. I to have been married for 30 years and that's something to celebrate! I also want to say, I absolutely cannot stand Faye! I would have thrown her out of my house had she spoke to me in the way she did you, and as far as Kyle goes, she apparently doesn't have your back! I love Yolanda and Brandi although I wish Brandi would clean up her cursing lol you still are better off with friends that are more genuine and loyal to you as these ladies are. That being said, I just wanted you to know, I simply adore you and ken and let's not forget the gigster. ;) xoxoxo

Lisa,

I hope you do read this.  I must say that out of all the housewives, you are the most honest, beautiful (inside and out), sincere, loyal lady.  By the way, I used all of my votes for you on DWTS.  I was truly disappointed to see you go.  You have lovely dance lines and grace.  I, also, want to tell you that I have enjoyed watching your new show "Vanderpump Rules".  I think you are a great mentor.  You are blessed with so much and I not speaking about the material things.  May many blessings continue to flow upon you.

 

Sincerely,

@memsiam @bestill REALLY... So Adrienne, who skipped all of Paris and who thumbed her nose at the reunion, who (according to Bravo) tried to control every scene she was in, FORCED herself on the day she was served with divorce papers to attend (hours late) a party given by her nemesis which she already knew was a vow renewal celebration--a party Ken and Lisa had every right to give on their thirty-year anniversary--leaving her grieving sons at home without their parents, arriving without one word of apology to her hosts who had long before stopped greeting guests at the door, gathering all cast members who would listen, bemoaning the fact that her marriage with Paul (the man she belittled and verbally castrated and who she alleged in tabloids a couple of days later abused her and her children) was over. REALLY?!? How effective it was wearing 95% less makeup and (probably) plucking a few nose hairs to induce tears while getting out of the limo--you two swallowed the whole fish tale--hook, line, and sinker.

Lisa has stated that Kyle is a friend, but she sees her differently now due to Kyle's actions (or inaction in some cases).  Kyle, like Adrienne did, wants to be the main star of the show.  She will throw anyone under the bus in order to achieve it, including her sister (when she "outted" Kim's alcoholism).  I, like Brandi, feel she does not want Kim to fully succeed--she wants her to be healthy and sober, but she doesn't want Kim to really be her old self because in her heyday, Kim was well-known, popular, and made a lot of money--she was a far bigger star than Kyle ever was.  Kyle doesn't want to be relegated back to the "sister of Kim".  I believe Kyle truly cares for Lisa, as does Lisa for her.  However, Kyle is extremely jealous.  Kyle has tried to steal every scene, make the show about her, and last year, joined Adrienne against Lisa to take her down a few notches.  Kyle was completely with Adrienne at the reunion ambush yet somehow cannot understand why Lisa is not as close with her as before.  Kyle is like a terrior dog--all cute and wanting fun, but if you touch her the wrong way, she bites your fingers.  That's what she did with Lisa--Lisa thought they were great friends and then she was ambushed--Lisa cannot think of her the same way as before.  She can have fun with her, but she can no longer trust her.  The friendship is now casual.  Lisa DOES NOT have to get over it.  We witnessed Kyle performing Child Acting 101 Breakout Tears in an attempt to draw Lisa back, but yet when Lisa finally tested her--for Kyle to just say she would back her (without biting her or stabbing her in the back), Kyle couldn't.  So Lisa's moved on.  Kyle counted on Adrienne to take Lisa down and when Lisa rose like a phoenix while Adrienne destroyed all her credibility, Kyle was backtracking trying to get Lisa to love her again.  It's not a grudge on Lisa's part--it's pure knowledge--you don't play with/trust dogs who bite.

Serabbi

Lisa gave Adrienne a chance to mend her ways; however, from the floral monstrosity sent to make a statement at Villa Blanca to showing up hours late to try to ruin Lisa's and Ken's vow renewals, from allowing Bernie's ranting postings to continue and feeding garbage to online web sites, to going in business competition against her while at the same time verbally degrading Lisa's top-rated businesses, Adrienne has earned the animosity Lisa feels against her.  That is not holding a grudge--that is a very real defensive stance she has taken against an apparent real enemy.  Adrienne caused many problems and it's good she's gone from the show.

Serabbi
Serabbi

Lisa doesn't manipulate anyone.  She has befriended Brandi because they both share a sense of humour and Lisa has tried to help her--including taper down her foul mouth.  She doesn't agree with Brandi's morals (or lack thereof) and all things she says and does.  However, Lisa has found Brandi to be loyal and trustworthy friend. If it were to change, she would move on from Brandi.  Brandi is but one friend--Lisa is friends with a lot of people--just because you do not see them on camera does not mean they are not there.  Kyle brought Marisa and Faye on the show to be her backup.  Marisa turned out to be a wannabe; however Faye was Kyle's spokesperson.  I do not buy one bit of the crock Kyle said about having nothing to do with Faye's attacks.  Faye is friends with both Kyle and Adrienne--enough said.  Kyle could have stopped the attack on Brandi at her dinner party as it was in her own house, but chose to allow the attack to go on.  And for Faye to rabidly attack Lisa in her own home at the vow renewal party when Lisa barely knew her was ridiculous.  Lisa's hands were tied as the producers invited her to the party--otherwise, Faye would not have been allowed in the gate, just as Lisa tried to stop her from coming to the tea party.  Lisa has a right to stand up for herself and any other person she chooses to defend.  And as for what she said at the reunion regarding Paul moving out a couple of times before the final separation, note that despite the fact Adrienne and Bernie attacked her for the past year or so, Lisa  kept the secret until way after the divorce and both parties were dating people young enough to be their children.

Faye is a hanger on, she has no business on the show she's not even a Housewife, she's kissing up to Maloof in hopes of getting decorating jobs, I've been on a few blogs on ur behalf...cause I figured out a long time ago that Adrianne was the one who was selling stories to the press & pinning it on you, & your right, Kyle should of defended you when that happen, Kyle has no problem defending the likes of Adrianne who doesn't deserve it, besides Maloof will hire lawyers 2 do her dirty work..she doesn't need Kyle or Faye defending her...c'mon ow!,...

What a hypocrite Adrianne is, here the Armstrong's were rejected from the white party a few seasons back, because of the Maloof's were getting all upset over Russel's e-mail to Camille, please!...Kyle cried making Taylor leave & that was hard to watch, a woman, Kyle, who felt she had to obey them & Camille's paranoia, again I really think it had to do with her husband's business, but to Kyle's credit she struggle with her choice but in the end she threw her friend under the bus, cause the Maloof's & the Grammers have more invested in her husband biz affairs, why else would she kicked her BFF out?  ..

In addition to all the lies Maloof has been caught in, the fact that she has no issue with that idiot big mouth hired help cook of hers is  very telling, she condones his cattiness, when she should be firing his big fat mouth....The fact that she is so over the top competitive acting as if ur stepping on her toes by being in the shoe biz, pun intended..& taking way too seriously the funny comment u made, ur pump & her hoof.".. she def takes herself  WAY too seriously., plus how upset she was when your daughter didn't pick her stupid Hotel, all signs...shows how fiercely competitive she is, dangerously so...I'm glad Brandi had the moxie to stand up to her & not be her puppet on your behalf, also glad to see that you guys have reciprocated by protecting her as well...Brandi is unpolished but she did the right thing & she certainly could of easily been another Faye in hopes of getting something out of her loyalty to Maloof...so I'm impressed that she didn't play into that  pecking order game for personal gain...I feel she sincerely likes you and Ken,  especially Ken...lol its  cute tho...

Hello again,

 

I just wanted to let you know that I voted for you max times last week. I am sorry you got so ill and hope that you are feeling better. I thought you totally deserved to stay, but I was also concerned for you to be able to get well so you could stay in the competition. Not sure if that was possible given the demanding routine. We love our Lisa and want you well so we can continue to see you do many more.  

 

I think you are one awesome, loving momma to be so ill and get up and dance in honor of your daughter and her special day. On top of that, you did a great job! It’s pretty heroic really.

 

I read on Kim’s blog that you are a great singer. So when do we get to hear you sing and play your piano?

I don't understand why Kyle needs to bring Faye with her to all Lisa's events.I do not understand why Fay is so disrespectful to someone's guests..  I can't understand why you, Lisa, do not ask Kyle to leave Faye home.  I surely would not tag along to events without getting an invite from  the hosts.  Seems Kyle needs a support friend to back her up whereever she goes.  I lost all respect for Kyle and Kim when they hid Brandi's crutch.

Kyle and Kim are as bad as Faye.  They hide their "mean girls " personalities well.

Hope Bravo gets rid of Faye.  She is despicable.  If Kyle needs a friend like her, she lacks good judgement and is really not a good person herself. "Birds of a feather, fly together."

Love to watch Lisa, whatever the show.

I am sorry that you are off DWTS, because that was the only reason I started watching it again.  I am not a big reality TV person, but I am enjoying watching you.  I was home from work one day and they were airing previous episodes and you drew me in.  So, when I returned to work and mentioned, I was like an alien - the only person that had not watched the show.

 

I do think Kyle is really sorry, and it would be good to give her the olive branch.  She has her flaws and she misses her friendship with you.  As a friend, don't deny her that.  You have a big heart which is evident and very refreshing.  There are too many people watching that do not know how to work through things, but to give up or walk away.  I do understand that there will need to be a rebuilding process - be active in rebuilding it.

 

I do not understand why Faye has not been asked to excuse herself on several occasions.  I cannot fathom going to a dinner party at someone's home and verbally attacking another guest or the host.  I get being polite, and there is a polite way to ask this person to leave. 

 

I totally agree that it was inappropriate for Adrienne to come to your home the day of your vow renewal.  If she needed a friend (which I am sure she did), she should have asked someone to come to her.  (IMO:  I saw that divorce coming.  They were not at peace around one another - a lot of nit-picking over little things, a lack of respect  with one another and very little support.)

 

Enjoy your break and get plenty of rest.  I wish the best for you and your family - and extended family.

Mean Girl!  That is what comes to mind when I think of you.  And it is so disappointing because I liked you so much till this year.  I feel like you showed a different side of yourself this year, especially at the reunion, and I don't know if this fame thing has gone to your head but watching you was really disappointing.

Colliesrbest:  Not a chance.  Lisa knew she could manipulate Brandi.  She cannot manipulate Kyle.  Kyle is too smart.  Lisa's problem now is that Brandi's unfiltered mouth is out on talk shows telling all about Lisa's conniving manipulations.  Should be interesting to watch.  Can Lisa bring Brandi back under control?  Tune in to see.

 @Serabbi I disagree.  I believe Adrienne wanted to be greeted by Lisa.  Remember how distraught she was?   She was upset and felt uncomfortable entering the center of the party to greet the hostess.   There seems to be a lot of miscommunication.   The only person that I feel should leave the show is Brandi because she is so vicious and wants a lot of attention, no matter how negative.

 @memsiam  @Serabbi I feel that Adrienne did show up for attention.  I mean who shows up for a party when they are going through something like that?....oh wait!, Adrienne.  And then she doesn't even go see Lisa, the one who is throwing this celebration!  I thought it was rude of Adrienne to show up, cry and then leave without even going to Lisa.

Serabbi

@memsiam Adrienne entered the party hours late, knowing fully well it was a 30-yr. vow renewal--Lisa left that front door hours before--instead of staying home with her sons who probably needed her or getting sympathy from her family members, she made a statement much like her hideous floral arrangement sent to Villa Blanca--she tried to upstage Lisa at Lisa's own party, making her divorce the "downer" to ruin the party. I believe she faked a good deal of that--all she ever did was put Paul down. And if she REALLY intended to attend the party despite the fact she was served with divorce papers, it is proper etiquette for a very late guest to find the host and apologize. Luckily Lisa went through with the renewal and we were witness to REAL enduring love of a lifetime.

 @Kelly21  @swopey

 I don't get it either. Lisa is the epitome of a kind and wonderful lady. She was a little spicy at the reunion and I loved every second of it. It is obvious she is not going to be the rug Kyle want's her to be. For that I give her kudos. I believe in being close mouthed and discreet but enough is enough. Kyle made serious blunders this season and she made Brandi, Lisa and Yolanda look like saints compared to her. She is the one who let fame go to her head. She is very transparent.

 @Serabbi  @memsiam Oh please, enough bashing Adrienne!  The woman looked very distraught upon entering the party after just being served divorce papers.  Anyone with an ounce of compassion would feel sorry for her!  If Lisa and Ken wanted to renew their vows without Adrienne then they should have done it off Reality TV.  Per Andy during WWHL this was the last party of the season and everyone is to attend.  I think Lisa and Ken are full of themselves!
