Lisa R Reflects on That Bittersweet Episode

Mean Girl Remarks

Yolanda wishes she had spent more time doing research on all the history of the 'Wives fights before going to Vegas.

Hello everyone! Thank you so much for taking the time to read and write on this blog, I really enjoy your points of view as well as sharing mine. . .I'm continuing to try to get my point across without sounding too judgmental. It's a fine line to walk, but please know that I always come from a place of kindness.

Vegas, Woohoo! I am sure you had a good laugh watching us clowns. . .

As you can tell, I won't be able to get a job as a pole dancer anytime soon. But even though I felt and looked like a total amateur, I really enjoyed and had a lot of fun at Brandi's pole dancing event. She looked fantastic and thank god she did not need our expertise to get the job.

It seems Adrienne is creating a beautiful collection and is focused on her business. I wish her luck and success in all her ventures. That said, I believe she is giving Brandi way too much energy and wish she would just move on and stop blaming others for the increasing misery in her life.

You know, it's the way Adrienne says "I hope Brandi is having fun in Vegas, I have a business to run." Just rubs me the wrong way. . .

I don't know Adrienne very well because she never reached out to me, but I have observed her behavior and she comes off quite arrogant. Again she is belittling Brandi's business to empower herself, and I find it very unattractive and unproductive.

Even though they don't get along, they should not be dismissive of each other's success because at the end of the day we are all working for the same reason -- and that is to help support our children and family.

I took the same pride in my dishwashing job as a child as I take in running my company today. When done with heart, commitment, and integrity, every job is equally important.

Kim's phone call was a big surprise. I wished she had come to Vegas instead of having plastic surgery, because I was really worried that the anesthesia and medication would throw off the chemical balance in her brain and jeopardize her sobriety. It looks however, like she pulled it off, and, as always, I am rooting for her. If the nose job makes her feel better about herself, then how can we say it’s right or wrong?

All of us who have suffered from lost love can recognize the negative body language between Adrienne and Paul. It's sad when you get to that point where, for no valid reason, everything your partner does bothers you. I am sorry to see this and it's unfortunate for their children, but this looks like it might be the beginning of the end.

I find it hard to believe Paul would put a patient from Saudi Arabia and her surgery on hold to get his back lasered, but then again nothing in Beverly Hills surprises me these days.

Lisa and I spent a great afternoon at the sale of Dolce and Gabbana. Seeing us walk to dinner and giggling reminds me of the importance of girlfriend time. Unfortunately the fun did not last very long. . .

It's always a pleasure to have Jennifer around and listen to her great insights on addiction.

Marisa wasn't having a great day and the red wine spill did not make that any better. BTW girls, Barbra Streisand could without a doubt give you some laundry tips. She is one of the most meticulous homemakers I know and has many talents beyond her singing and acting.

We all have different friends in and outside this group so I am not dismissing Kyle and Camille's friendship with Adrienne but why are we ruining another dinner over this?

Like I said, the only thing constant in life is change. And even though friendships can take on different shapes and forms, they can still be of great value in our lives. Adrienne could have stayed engaged with the group regardless of her issues with Brandi -- but she chose not to.

I like Camille, but unfortunately there seems to be a different perception of her conversation with Brandi. I did find the SUR remark way below the belt and I don't know what Lisa did to deserve that. It's concerning though to see someone speak with such conviction about private business matters -- a textbook example of the seed of trash talk leading to gossip! If you are going to stand up and make a scene, you better get your facts straight.

I am really having a hard time figuring out who is loyal to whom. I believe it is totally OK not to be best friends with every person in the group. Naturally you have more chemistry with some than others but just be honest about it and fight fair.

Kyle using Brandi's "nose job" as a fact of credibility is such an immature and mean girl remark. . .My thoughts of Brandi are not more or less, with or without a nose job.

I am starting to really feel the hurt feelings from the last reunion that is fueling all this negativity. In the plane on our way home, I really pushed Kyle and Lisa to have a heart to heart so that I could better understand.

I listened to two women trying to justify their position. I saw a lot of pain and tears but also love between two souls that have lost their trust and friendship but are not really ready to give it all up and walk away.

The next day I have to admit I finally watched the reunion of RHOBH's Season 2 just to understand what really happened on that defining night that created so much damage in this group.

I finally realized that I had made a big mistake by not investing time in the history of these ladies.

To be honest with you, I really felt bad for Lisa and without knowing all the details. It seemed like a mean attack on a woman they once called their best friend.

So as we travel through this exciting Season 3 together, you will be seeing a lot more fun and drama from this dynamic group of women, as we share a part of our lives, as well as the making and breaking of relationships in all kinds of uncomfortable but real situations. I am certainly not drama-free in my life, and I used to be a lot more feisty, but I have arrived at a place where I really try to not sweat the small stuff anymore. Since losing my health I also feel strongly about making each new day worthwhile.

If I could share anything with my girlfriends and you, it would be this: Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future but concentrate the mind on the present moment.

With that said, have a great week,

Much love,
Y

Lisa V.: I Tried to Warn Kyle

Lisa V. tells us what she held back during her lunch with Kyle at Villa Blanca and why she's worried about Kim and Brandi's friendship.

Hello, as I muddle through this blog doused with medicines, fighting the flu, trying to make sense of this nonsensical situation...
So, as we reenter the poker party, I am sooo thankful that I wasn't there. I do not do well with altercations whilst others seem to thrive on it.
There are so many different aspects to this scenario that are upsetting: the volatility, the disloyalty, Kyle's frustration at trying to corner her sister and talk some sense into her but being intercepted by Brandi...Lisa and Eileen just astounded as they desperately try to keep the peace...
I don't understand the need for Brandi to expose the fact that Kim has called her in the middle of the night several times and she is worried about her. What are we intimating? Wouldn't a loyal friend keep quiet on matters as such?


As she drives a greater wedge between the two sisters, Kim in her naïveté seems to relish the fact that both women are so concerned over her, wailing, "The problem is they both love me" is almost pitiful, and I felt sorry to see her confusion as she tried to placate both parties. What worries me, apart from the emotional turmoil, is that the aggression is unacceptable, and as I see Brandi holding Kyle's arms--the sheer anger that is a result of the alcohol once more--it's just all too much. This excuse that keeps being used that Brandi has no filter is wearing very thin...This is not an example of someone with no filter, this an example of a person that needs to realign her priorities and boundaries. It's everything. The crass comments about Eileen's house were uncalled for as she had the grace to even entertain her, invite her into her house, which is warm and cosy with a plethora of family pictures decorating the walls that indicate happy relationships. Maybe that is what she finds creepy. Anyway, I thought it was generous after being almost assaulted by having a glass of wine hurled in her face that the invitation was extended at all.
Brandi makes many rash statements, such as "They hate each other" and "Kyle is never there to support her sister." Let us cast our minds back to last week...Kyle went to the bathroom, Kim followed her, Kyle whispered to her she was worried, covering her mic to protect her sister...She also knows what is going on with her sister, but in order to PROTECT her sister, she denies it on the ride home with Lisa...
How can you equate this new friendship that started with the "slut pig" comment and "I don't do crystal meth in the bathroom, bitch" just a couple of years ago and only recently cemented to that of a sibling who has spent forty-four years at her side? The tumultuous path that these two have experienced, of which I am sure if alcoholism is involved, has not been an easy one. One that has been fraught with tears of disappointment, anger, and sometimes joy as she succeeded in her fight for sobriety.
We will see what transpires in this new friendship as we ride the wave of this complicated season, we will see the levels of loyalty that is given to this "new" friendship. There is so much I have been privy to and, although not so close with many involved, I would not expose anyone if it was to their detriment.
Anyway, moving on to happier times, I loved seeing the return of Rumpy. We waited patiently, all the little furry people lined up waiting to see the transformation from the naughty dog we sent away into a well behaved young retriever. Well we are still dealing with an overexcited young dog, but now he has a partner in crime, he seems more fulfilled. We have had many big dogs over the years but none quite as mischievous as Sir Rumpy Pumpy. Anyway, we kept Avery, and I have to say it is a complete success.

Eileen comes to collect me on the way to Lisa's. She makes it past Hanky Panky--always a good thing! She tries to explain, but I was none the wiser as to the intensity of the scenario that went down. Never heard of nuggs either...love her, though.
Lisa threw a rather lovely jewelry event. No darling, some of us do have big fat f---ing diamonds as you say, but my thirst for costume jewelry is unquenchable as you have seen my collection in my closet! I admired Eileen as she tries to reason with somebody unreasonable! Desperately trying to explain to Brandi what is not quite acceptable...good luck with that. I tried the mothering thing, and I was criticized for that.
When Kyle and I went to Villa Blanca, I am reticent to say what I would love to. If you remember in one of the early episode of this season as I witnessed the bond between Brandi and her, I stated, "I will not get involved, she will discover it soon enough..." But if I could, it would go something like this: "See? Now do you see how I felt? You think I hold a grudge more than Giggy and should forgive her? You are experiencing a minuscule amount of what that woman put me through!"
But somehow it is better left unsaid, as I believe her personal experience will resonate far more than any warning I could issue, but I did voice my concern over the fragility of Kim, not knowing that she could sustain the same disloyalty I have endured. Kim has definitely had a lot to deal with, and we all wish her success in her quest for sobriety...abso-bloody-lutely.
Oh well, now I have to sign off. I hope everybody stays safe on the East Coast, and as always, I thank you for watching...
Love always, Lisa.
