Faye's Unsolicited Advice

Marisa explains why no one should have been offering advice about Brandi's situation with Adrienne.

I would like to start my first Bravotv.com blog by sending love and prayers to the victims of the horrific tragedy in Connecticut. May those of us who are spending time with family during the holidays be grateful and safe and not take our blessings for granted.

When tragedies occur we often put life into perspective and focus on the things that really matter. Often times we get caught up in trivial things and waste time and energy on issues that don’t deserve our attention. It is bad enough if we are dealing with personal issues, but why insert yourself into issues that have nothing to do with you?

One thing I learned early on in this process is that this is a group of very strong women with equally strong opinions. I wasn’t exactly sure what I was getting myself into, so I treaded lightly while observing what was going on. Again, the drama that was already brewing didn’t involve me, so I wanted to really understand the dilemma before I shot from the mouth. I am the kind of person that will give an honest opinion if asked, and I am happy to offer advice, but it is ultimately up to the person on the receiving end to decide if they wish to take it or leave it. I don’t recall Brandi asking Faye for advice; it seems they don’t even know each other. In fact, I don’t recall Brandi asking anyone for advice on the Adrienne matter. This is an issue between Adrienne and Brandi and should remain between them. 

The extent to which cast members try to control the outcome of things that don’t involve them is, well, controlling. Since we don’t know exactly what was said, we can’t really comment further on the Adrienne and Brandi drama, and as for me, they haven’t asked for my opinion.

Filming The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was an interesting life experience, and I am grateful that we are all on this journey together. 

I am sure I will make mistakes, but have no doubt you will call me out on them and I appreciate that. I am looking forward to reading your perspective and look forward to connecting with you every week!

XX,
Marisa
