Marisa Is So Over Taylor

Maris comments on the Moroccan dinner gone wrong and why she feels like Brandi deserved to speak up for herself.

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a nice week. The kids and I are happy that Dean is back home. He was away shooting a movie with Matt Damon and oblivious to all the drama happening in Beverly Hills. LOL. This episode annoyed me so I'll just get right into it. . .

Tonight we saw Brandi's vulnerable side behind her strength. Brandi has been through a lot and it is great that she can be so open and honest with all of us. I think Brandi and Lisa are very cute together and it is nice to see this side of both of them.

Kyle and I decided to set up a dinner to break up the monotony of all the drama. I also wanted to get to know the ladies a bit more. It seemed like a good idea to make it a Moroccan themed dinner to add a fun element to it. Everyone was invited, including the men because the hope was that this would be a fun and easygoing evening. Little did I know that with this group, that is almost impossible!!!

In walks Brandi looking so damn gorgeous as always, I cant stand it! Brandi announces that Adrienne is suing her! WTF! Kyle and I are shocked! I didn't get into it because again, this issue doesn't involve me, but that didn't stop everyone else from jumping right in.

Let's talk about Taylor; she seems to be a walking contradiction. Honestly, how does Taylor tell Lisa to find her a man in one breath and then in the other she starts playing the victim, talking about how she feels guilty dating, etc.? I think it B.S.

Yolanda then makes the mistake of asking Lisa about what's going on with Brandi and Adrienne and the fire is now fueled. Brandi admitted that she shouldn't have said it, but unfortunately Mauricio starts to ask questions and then all hell breaks loose.I don’t blame Kyle for pinching Mauricio as a sign to stop engaging with Brandi; I would have done the same to my husband if he engaged!!

Then whom do we hear from again? You guessed it, none other than Taylor, who is so desperate to get some attention on herself that she starts sticking up for Brandi and yells that they are both are single women and need to stick together. Taylor goes on and on about how her deceased husband left her with a mountain of debt and problems..OMG.. how often do we have to hear about this!!! Who cares! So over Taylor! The thing that pisses me off is that Taylor is just fake, she is the Queen of inauthenticity.

Finally, after all the yelling has subsided, my husband Dean, as always, has to make a joke so he asks what we want for desert. I think that sums all of this up.

As I get to know these ladies more I am taking this drama less seriously, honestly some of it is so over-the-top you have to laugh at the end. If nothing else, at least we are entertained.

xx,
Marisa

Lisa R.: Kyle Didn't Create This Drama

Lisa R. thinks there are two ladies who aren't taking responsibility for their actions.

I have to start the week off by giving a shout out to all of you. During last week’s episode and throughout the week, your tweets have been pouring in, and you guys really make me laugh. Yes, as a matter of fact I DID want to dive-roll head first out of that car ride with Kim onto the freeway and run. Run Forrest, run! All of your support and understanding means everything!

So, we pick up right where we left off, but before we do, I’d like to note that Kyle wasn’t the one to create any of this drama. It was Kim that chose to walk back in the house after Brandi had escorted her outside and told her NOT to go back in. There was a lot of alcohol and God knows what other drugs influencing a lot of the behaviors, so no matter what, the outcome wasn’t going to be a good one. Like a Dr. Phil quote I used on Twitter last week, “When you choose the behavior, you choose the consequence.” While I have compassion and empathy for these women and what I see playing out in front of me, there seems to be a lot of blame that both Kim and Brandi are trying to place on Kyle, and in my opinion they aren’t accepting the consequences from their behavior.

Now that some time has passed and I have really had some time to digest the situation, I myself have some questions just like all of you. Why did Kim go to Eileen’s poker night if she was sick with pneumonia and bronchitis? I don’t doubt that major illnesses like these made her feel terrible. So, then why go in the first place and then exacerbate these illnesses by smoking cigars all evening? I’m quite certain that had I been as ill as she was, I would have been in my bed pickling myself in oil of oregano and overdosing on vitamin C and echinacea. But again, as I didn’t know where she was in her sobriety, I also didn’t know where she was in her illnesses.

To me, there seems to be a lot of pain being masked by alcohol.

Lisa Rinna

As far as Brandi goes, my comments are coming from a place of experience and concern. I’ve been, like I know many many of you have also, a part of lives that have been affected by addiction. And to echo Yolanda’s sentiments, I have a hard time wrapping my brain around the idea of grown women, mothers in particular,
behaving this way. To me, there seems to be a lot of pain being masked by alcohol. Granted, I don’t know what goes on in Brandi’s life outside of this. I only know what I observe in this environment.

I’m just so happy that the darn Stella & Dot party was successful. Hallelujah! Holly Robinson Peete had done a similar party that had an amazing turnout, and I was beyond thrilled to host my own. The Noreen Fraser Foundation’s mission, "to find a way to live with cancer and not die from it" is very close to my heart. Both my mother and sister are recent breast cancer survivors with double masectomies, so it was very important to me that the party be a successful one. It meant so much to me that everyone, with the exception of Kim being in the hospital, showed up despite what had recently gone down. By the grace of God, everyone kept their composure, bought a ton of jewelry, and appeared to have a good time. Big thanks to Stella & Dot for helping to raise so much money and to Gourmet 47 and Hourie for catering the amazing food.

Giant kudos to Eileen for speaking her mind with Brandi at my house. She always knows how to remain classy and sophisticated even in the most uncomfortable of situations. I admire her deeply for that.

Lisa V.’s impeccable brood continues to grow as we see her add Pumpy to the family. What a gorgeous and incredibly lucky dog she is to take on the Vanderpump name. If only she truly knew what a lucky bitch she is!

Next week is the Gay Mixer and yes, I finally understand that I shouldn’t come naked. Again, I ask my dear gay friends forgiveness for not understanding what Kyle meant. Sometimes it just takes me a minute to catch these innuendos. Oy. Be sure to keep your seatbelts safely fastened as we are still experiencing turbulence!

Until next week….

Xo, LR
