Lisa R Reflects on That Bittersweet Episode

Disgusted by Lisa's Little Digs

Brandi can't believe Lisa would bring up rumors of Mauricio's infidelity in front of Kyle's five-year-old child.

Welcome back RHOBH fans! We have officially started Season 4, which promises to be a rocky season for myself.

In writing these blogs it is always difficult to go back in time and remember exactly how I was feeling in that momen -- because my relationships and friendships with these women have all evolved and changed. So much has happened in all of our lives since the first episode was shot but I will do my best to recollect my feelings at that particular time and try not to be to biased as to how I feel right now!

This year I was able to move into a bigger home so that we could all have our own bedrooms and the boys could have a fancy new pool. While it may not be a mansion by any stretch I am very proud to call it home. I do also realize my children would be happy in a studio apartment with all of us sharing the same bed, but I still wanted them to have some of the luxuries they have on their dad's time on my time as well.

My real estate agent-slash-on-again-off-again-boyfriend-for-over-a year-now Jonathon Ruiz (better known as J.R.) helped me find my new place, as you all saw on the show. He is a great real estate agent but other then that I don't want to delve into my relationship with J.R. just yet because boy is it ever so complicated.

Yolanda and I go shopping for furniture that is just a bit out of my price range, but amazingly stylish. It gives me some good ideas for what I should be looking for at a lesser price. I really admire Yolanda's strength and beauty, the fight that she has inside, the way she bear hugs her modern, combined family and the amazing way she is raising her beautiful children. I am really learning so much from her.

Now getting more into the show,  I urged Yolanda to go to Kyle's party mostly because I needed a date. The fact is that Kyle, Kim and myself at this point were still working out issues and our friendship.

At Kyle's party we finally meet the two new Housewives and I actually at the time found them both very lovely... but definitely felt more of a connection with Carlton and David.

I was honestly shocked to see all the digs that Lisa took at Kyle in this episode. . . .not to say that Kyle and I won't have many future digs for one another along our path.

But this one really stuck with me and I just found it so inappropriate: when Lisa was speaking of the Mauricio's cheating rumors in front of Portia, Kyle and Maurcico's five year old daughter!!! Portia is five and she and my son Jake are almost the same age. Let me tell you these kids hear and understand EVERYTHING that gets said to them and around them.  Listen, I am all for putting the elephant in the room on point, as I always have been, but you never do that around someone's child. We are grown ups we pick the time and place.

In closing I would love to say I am shocked about the level of closeness and ass kissing between Lisa and Scheana. At that particular time I would have been quite shocked by it, but sadly I now know better -- and it is hard to pretend otherwise.

P.S. Dear random 30-year-old cocktail waitress, my face may not move but neither do my legs when it comes to taken men, no matter how hard they come at me.

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.
