Carlton: What's the Bloody Point With Kyle?

Hi sorry for the delay, but on holiday with my gorgeous family and got started late.

Watching this week's episode was exhausting to say the least, and obviously very personal to me.

I refuse to start a shouting match with this grown woman who is overbearing and who is obviously extremely angry. What's the bloody point when she wouldn't allow me to answer any questions but just shouted over me?

When a person can call me such horrific names like anti-Semetic, compares my religion and symbol to serial killer Richard Ramirez, and then immediately admits that she did know what a pentagram looked like -- why would I deal with such a vile being? The point is all the labels and false accusations that spew out of this toxic woman's mouth are classic transference. She's already admitted on national TV that when she heard about me she was less than thrilled. If anyone had an agenda going in it was obviously her, as every time I saw her my faith came up. This has been my whole experience with her. If she's so obsessed with my religion, she had months to do the research, like any curious person, and educate herself instead of being so ignorant and provoking. I would however like her to say that she knew nothing about me before she met me that first night.

Then the sex toys comment comes out of her from nowhere. Yet another insult. For this whole season I said nothing about all the rumors regarding Mauricio, in fact I said ignore it and let it die already. Not judging anyone's sexual preference, but let's be honest maybe if she had had her own "toys" those nasty "alleged" rumors of her husband wouldn't still be out there. Where there's smoke in West Hollywood. . .

She keeps persecuting Lisa for the bloody tabloid drama. Yet again, demanding an apology. I think it's that misplaced anger, judging by the senseless way she goes after Lisa so vehemently.

The ridiculous arguing about Lisa not going to Kim's daughters party was definitely going in circles with no end in sight. I think Lisa's explanation was more than sufficient and she didn't need two other people explaining it for her either.

I truly appreciate Lisa's defending me against Kyle calling me anti Semitic. Lisa, being the only business owner, really understood the severity of such a baseless accusation.

After this fiasco I am now going to cleanse myself in this healing ocean of Kona.

Lisa V.: Lisa R. Took the Bait

Lisa V. talks about the explosive dinner in Amsterdam and why she understands where Brandi is coming from with the hypocrisy comment.

Hello again. How crazy was this one?
So as we join the ladies in Amsterdam, I meet Lisa and Eileen for some tea in the lounge. I was reticent to be involved in this potential confrontation. I had voiced my concerns gently to Lisa, expressing my thoughts on discussing sobriety with Kim--it was a land mine that I wanted to avoid. Anyway, we go to dinner...I actually cringed as I objected to Yolanda's stance on prostitution, my caustic remark in interview, but that, in the grand scale of things, flew under the radar. However, I am sure in situations where there is no choice, maybe prostitution is understandable, but in a cosmopolitan city like Amsterdam where there are a plethora of choices--maybe even menial--but choices nonetheless, whilst preserving our dignity, they would be mine.
So the dinner progresses. I once again don't agree that we have superficial conversations in Beverly Hills as Yolanda said. Maybe some do, but I am sure my character is the same as when I was in the heart of the English countryside, or wherever I lived.

Lisa took the bait, and therefore became somewhat culpable in this whole scenario.

Lisa Vanderpump

So things start to heat up...Lisa categorically says, "I apologize for getting in your business." That should have been the end of it, but no, Kim was gunning for her and was not going to back down. She was on a mission. I adore Lisa, and I don't stand in front of her and condone her actions (any physicality does not sit well with me), however, there comes a time when one might just snap, especially when you are defending the good name of your family, their integrity in a public arena against the aggressor, being Kim, who is hinting at insidious rumors. I urge Lisa to challenge her later over the spiteful intimation regarding Harry. I was absolutely of the mind that it was empty rhetoric, designed to incite Lisa. But Lisa reacted to it. Lisa took the bait, and therefore became somewhat culpable in this whole scenario.


Once again Kim lambasts Kyle for not defending her. How could Kyle defend her mean-spirited remarks? Calling Eileen a beast? I mean, have you all met Eileen? Really?
Lisa absolutely apologized to Kim in her attempt to intervene in regard to her sobriety. As she emotionally conveyed that her sister had died from some sort of abuse, either alcohol or drugs--I am not sure, it didn't even resonate with Kim. Lisa also stated she had witnessed alcoholism in Harry's family where loved ones were lost. Kim ignored Lisa's point that there was no mal intent, that it was coming from a place of concern. Yes, a place that was public, but we all understand that if we sign up to do a reality show, then our reality is displayed. If we have something to hide (skeletons in a closet), be sure they will come jumping out like a frigging jack in the box.
The enormity of the situation was pretty emotional. Each and every one of us astounded as to what we had witnessed. The most fascinating part when watching this is the fact that in the aftermath of the emotional explosion, one conversation between Lisa and Kim, which we obviously did not witness, all feelings were buried. A band-aid was put on the wound, and we were supposed to pretend as if it never ever existed. I think It was a double-edged sword: One side wonderful that everything was buried under a little Dutch rug, and we could enjoy the sights of Amsterdam; the other side being there was obvious feelings that were festering. My attitude was that I would've rather enjoyed the trip and dealt with whatever residual feelings upon our return.
I have to say it was pretty hilarious that out of all the men and all the windmills, we found one of Yolanda's ex-boyfriends. What a gift that we giggled over, enjoying the playful banter as we teased her.


All was sailing along pretty smoothly until the pot shop. I make no pretenses of anything whatsoever. We are in a public forum, we are all aware of that. My children are grown, and I understand the reticence to partake in whatever was on offer, but then let's not go there in the first place. Let us not sit in the middle of this bar and start hurling accusations designed to embarrass.
I do understand to some extent what Brandi is saying regarding hypocrisy. If you do it, own it, but in all the years I have known Kyle, I don't ever recall seeing her smoking. Brandi persisted, but the caveat here is we are all too often the victims of her behavior. When she drinks, things often become aggressive...as you will see next week.
I know this is only a blog, and in my attempt to further explain the complicated dynamics, it could well turn into a book, so I will leave you here and hope you all have a fruitful week.

I am leaving NY after speaking at the United Nations--an overwhelming experience. It was snowing, so East Coast, stay warm! As always...Love, Lisa.
