Holding Marisa Responsible

Yolanda wasn't going to let the other ladies walk all over Brandi.

Hello my friends, sorry for the delay. It has been a struggle the past couple of months to focus on writing this blog due to the Lyme disease that has so severely affected my brain function.

Most days I stare at a blank page for hours and won’t be able to put my thoughts into words. At home, David would sometimes help me write these, but here in Florida, I have been on my own.

It’s so frustrating, because I love writing and putting my thoughts on paper, as it has always been my way of digesting my thoughts and feelings. The good thing is I am starting to have good days with clarity, so my future is looking bright. I will continue to pave the way and share my health journey with the world until I find a cure and proper diagnostic testing for this silent killer called Lyme disease.

I always look forward to reading your comments and I just wanted to say thank you for taking the time to read my blog and getting to know me more intimately.OK, onto tonight’s business:

I thought Ken was hilarious. I am so happy to know his hip is working like a little charm and he is ready for another 30 years with Princess Pinky.



How cute were Lisa and Brandi in their robes? I would have much rather had massages with them, but I guess someone had to go and represent us and hold down the fort.

Adrienne’s Zing party of course was extravagant but beautifully done. I loved all the painted people; it was like a Cirque du Maloof.I never liked big parties, especially going alone. I much prefer smaller gatherings that are more intimate. A couple of shots of Zing would have definitely made me a lot more relaxed, but I just have not been comfortable enough to let my guard down amongst this feisty group.

Thank god I didn’t, because I needed every bit of my Lyme brain to function in order to understand what these adult women with their high school antics were trying to do, which was clearly throwing Brandi under the bus. Guess what, that ain’t gonna happen under my watch.

I feel Marisa should have waited to discuss the text message with Brandi rather then sharing this private discussion with a bunch of women that she knew didn’t have the best intentions with Brandi.

When Faye started her B-bashing, once again I just felt like I was trapped in a circle with a bunch of women I honestly have little in common with.

Maybe that sounds arrogant or mean, but it’s just not the way I choose to conduct myself. I don’t mind having a debate or agreeing to disagree with someone face to face, but I am very righteous and will stand up against all of them when I feel like they are ganging up on someone. Trash talk is dangerous, especially when it comes from hearsay.

Watching Adrienne and Paul interact is painful. I always wondered why she talks to her husband the way she does. In my eyes it seemed so extremely disrespectful, but I guess we now know why.

So to be fair to Adrienne, we all know what it feels like to fall out of love with someone who was once your everything and all of a sudden every little thing they do irritates you. Breakups can bring out the worst in us, and unfortunately most of us will deal with it at some point in time. Hopefully Paul and Adrienne can put their egos aside soon and focus on raising their beautiful children united as friends.

I am still not sure why they choose to make a public announcement about their separation on Lisa’s special day.Anyway on a more positive note, how beautiful and romantic was Villa Rosa? The perfect evening for lovers.

I was excited to have my hubby with me. It’s hard to pull him out of the studio when he is on a creative roll. This year has been crazy as he is running Verve Records as well as producing four new albums.

David grew up very poor, but since childhood he has had an obsession with airplanes to the extent that he knows every little detail of every plane in the sky. He never wants for anything and is too conservative to buy something as extravagant as a plane.

Even though it would be my greatest joy, I obviously cannot afford to buy a plane so as a wedding gift I recorded a song on his favorite jet.

It was very interesting to see how Wendy, who is a successful newscaster, was so surprised with the way I treat my husband. Funny that people mistake such kindness with weakness. Obviously I am by no means a doormat, but I do take great pride in tending to and taking care of my man.  Maybe I am old-fashioned that way, but he is the king in my household and I absolutely love it that way.Rather then standing around talking about the birds and the bees, I wanted to hold Marisa responsible for throwing Brandi under the bus at Adrienne’s party so we could move on from that. For a minute, I was speechless when Faye inserted herself into our conversation uninvited. I honestly have never seen anyone behave so rudely and inappropriately.  How hypocritical from someone that is trying to belittle another woman for her behavior?

I saw how these Pit Bulls treated Brandi last year, and that ain’t going to happen as long as this sheriff is in town.

The fact that Faye defines a woman by a Chanel bag is the most pathetic thing I have ever heard. To be honest, I think it’s an insult to the intelligence of a woman!

Anyway, let’s stay positive and put our focus back on the beauty of this romantic night at Villa Rosa. Next week you will be seeing a very special moment between Lisa and Ken. It’s probably the most precious and vulnerable I have ever seen Lisa, so please make sure to tune in!


Much love and a big kiss,

Yo

Lisa R.: It Felt Just As Awkward As It Looked

Lisa R. talks about the night that went from bad to worse.

Well things just went from zero to sixty rather quickly, didn’t they? Early on, I said how being on this season was similar to being on a roller coaster, and here we are. I feel like up to this point, we have been slowly climbing that first big hill and now we’re at the top, looking down at all of the scream-worthy, white-knuckled action ahead of us.

The quick whirlwind trip to Santa Barbara that Kyle planned was so much fun and full of laughter and really great girl time. The only thing missing from the trip was Yolanda, but she was off having her own wonderful bonding time with her gorgeous girls. It almost seems calling both Gigi and Bella gorgeous is an understatement. The camera loves those Hadid girls, just like it loves their beautiful momma, doesn’t it?

This was a completely different, very unpredictable, and aggressive Kim sitting next to me in the car, and to be honest, it made me feel extremely nervous and anxious.

Needless to say, the rides to and from Santa Barbara were full of crazy conversations. Is it strange to anyone else that we keep talking about grooming habits down there? Seems to be an oddly recurring theme. Anyway, I thought the lunch and wine tasting actually went rather well, all things considered. All of us were concerned about how Kim felt being put into this situation. Like I mentioned, I didn’t know where Kim was in her sobriety at that point with being around alcohol or others drinking it in front of her. I thought she handled it well by knowing when to excuse herself, as I’m sure the whole situation made her uncomfortable. And I certainly know how uncomfortable Kyle was. She really had no idea the lunch would center around drinking. Overall, I’d say the whole trip to Santa Barbara was a success.

The poker tournament at Eileen’s house, however, didn’t quite have the same successful outcome…

I knew the night was going to be a wild one when I saw how Kim was behaving when she arrived at my house before heading to Malibu. She asked to use the bathroom and was acting as if she was high on something, which is why I asked her if she had been drinking or was on drugs when we got into the car. I mean, HELLO! Could that car ride with Kim be any more awkward? Let me tell you, it felt just as awkward as it looked to all of you. I really had no idea what was going on or what to do. Every interaction I have ever had with Kim up until that point was light, fun, and easy going. This was a completely different, very unpredictable, and aggressive Kim sitting next to me in the car, and to be honest, it made me feel extremely nervous and anxious. I wasn’t sure if it was an act or a game we were playing, but deep down in my gut, I knew there was more to it and something was going on with her. I couldn’t get out of that car fast enough when we arrived at Eileen’s home, and I really had no idea what she would do next.

Before we dive deeper into the chaos of the night, I have to say that Vinny is quickly becoming one of my favorites. He’s just so charming and funny, and I love watching him and Eileen banter back and forth. They are such a dynamic couple. Unfortunately, what started as a lovely evening hosted by this fabulous couple quickly disintegrated into a mess of strange behavior. Who knew sitting around a poker table would send some of the girls to the dark side? The repetitive use of the word ‘stupid’ was absolutely unacceptable, though not altogether surprising as Kim and Brandi’s behavior speaks for itself.

That’s all superficial level stuff though that can roll off my back. The part that’s really hard was to watch Kyle realize with both fear and confusion what was going down in front of her own eyes. Kyle is no stranger to this complicated road she’s been down before with Kim, and I know what a deep relationship the two sisters have, so I really feel for her.

I’m sure Lisa V. is thrilled that she wasn’t a part of the crazy evening at Eileen’s. Instead, we got to watch her and Giggy, the little Sex Monster, play nude on the beach in Cabo. I know she was on a much-needed vacation, and I’m happy she was there with her family and precious Gigster.

Looks like we’re picking up speed and not stopping anytime soon!

Xo, LR
