Giving Brandi Ammunition

Marisa clears up her statements about Dean and marriage.

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a great Monday. I am writing to you from London. Dean and I are here for a special memorial screening in honor of his late father Richard and it is really wonderful to see how beloved he was all over the world. It makes me remember those words of wisdom about the importance of not forgetting those who you love because when they are gone it is too late.

When tonight's episode opened with the dinner I had to cringe. I am over this fight and everyone needs to just let Brandi and Adrienne deal with it, enough already! When Adrienne and Paul went to Kyle and Maricio's home I knew we hadn't heard the last of it. Sadly, this is not the last you have heard of this fight.

I liked the scenes with Yolanda, she is fun and effortless and smart. She leads an amazing life and her take charge attitude suits her well. Bouncing from Yolanda to Kim with her psychic was a bit of an adjustment but as I said last week when Taylor had her spiritualist over, if that works for them great.

Now on to the dinner with Brandi, my brother, Dean, and I. I really enjoy Brandi, but at that point we didn't know each other well and she still doesn't totally get me. So when I said that Dean wasn't my type she felt it was a insult to my husband. Brandi is right, it was disrespectful. Sometimes my mouth speaks before my brain thinks but that's me. Dean actually finds this to be an endearing, amusing and bemusing quality of mine. But you would have to know us to to know this. Brandi went on to make further assessments about my relationship with Dean which I would suggest in the future she keep to herself. In this instance though, I gave her the ammunition to fire and she did! Lesson learned.

I was excited to go to the art gallery with the girls and thought it would be a great way to get to know them all better. It turned out to be our first low key night together which was nice for a change. Taylor and I spoke about life and marriage. I explained to her that I feel a woman doesn't really know what she wants out of life or who she really is until she's about 30-something. I also feel that I did get married too young. While I'm sure these statements will be misconstrued, I do feel they are valid points about myself. I married and had kids at an early age because that's all I wanted at the time. Dean, Jack, and Darryl will always be my priority but my happiness I realized was not complete without a measure of independence and success that only I was responsible for.

Thank you for reading this and thanks again for all of your kind words and support, it means more to me than you know.

Lisa V.: I Understood Brandi's Frustrations

Lisa V. thinks everyone missed the point of Brandi and Lisa R. conversation about Kim.

Well, it's the final leg of this exhausting race. The sun sets on the Hills of Beverly...

And there we have it. So this season I felt was a little more illustrative of exactly who these complex characters are...Some weathered the storm with a modicum of regretful actions and others offered up a complete view into the depths of their inner being. Angry accusations, shrouded with deflection, were the actions of some incompetent of dealing with truths that should be confronted.
I understood the frustration of BG as she endeavored to restore the relationship that we once had, jokingly, maybe sometimes even genuinely, and we were in place of harmless banter, as I witnessed the bonds broken between the other women, the bond that last season was united by a common enemy...me.
I think there was genuine remorse that a friendship which benefitted her initially when she joined the group and we had both enjoyed was unsalvageable, a different one could possibly have replaced it, but once ties of loyalty are broken, you are on the defensive.
I never once said the slap was hard. The endless accusations last season of lying, deportation, bankruptcy, Ken abusing Yolanda...all that was accumulative and there was not enough there to counter balance it. I remember her clearly stating, "I fed that bitch " in regard to me on Andy's show, which was hurtful as we all the know the truth.

In a nutshell, did BG state that Kim needed a intervention? No, I don't know she did.

Lisa Vanderpump

When I spoke with BG, of course I felt empathy for her situation with her father, but that had nothing to do with me. I hear he is doing well, thankfully, but I barely know him. It would've been hypocritical, after Amsterdam, to call offering sympathy, when in the last nine months there had been no interaction between us at all, apart from filming. BG states she loves me...Easy to say, as easy as saying sorry, but actions are more important than words. The way you know if somebody loves you is the way they make you feel. If somebody is sorry, you would feel reassured that they would try not to perpetuate the same behavior. The big question here is, I didn't change from last season, so why this desperation to have me back in her life? Now is there a realization that maybe last year she was wrong, malicious, and vindictive? That should be the conversation. Anyway, I digress. One thing I know for sure is if my father's life was held in the balance, I would be there at his side, not arguing about the dynamics of a superficial conversation, but it was our final party at the end of the season.


In a nutshell, did BG state that Kim needed a intervention? No, I don't know she did. I believe Lisa misinterpreted her saying, "Maybe we all need an intervention" as "Maybe we all need TO DO an intervention." Many other things were said, and it begs the question, was BG's allegiance to Kim? When talking about Kim's fragile state publicly to her friend Jen and then Lisa, I would say not. I know that Lisa left that conversation after many statements from Brandi with the impression that Kim needed help. That was the point...The emphasis should not have dwelt upon one word. I had urged Lisa not to intervene in Kim's sobriety, but she was motivated by her personal history and felt justified in confronting her.
So there we have it, another season. I eally enjoyed Eileen and Lisa joining the cast...
I hope Kyle and Kim can find resolution away from cameras, I pray Yolanda can find her way to better health, and BG understands that relationships need to be treated with respect.
I thank you all for watching and your support...I will see you at the trilogy...

As always...Love, Lisa
