It Wasn't About Kyle and Me

Carlton shares why she got past her problems with Kyle and what she thought of Joyce's "self righteous" remarks.

So sorry for the delay but just got back last night from an amazing and successful whirlwind of a trip from NYC.

So the tail end of the SUR dinner was sad to see Brandi so distressed after having to deal with the tag team of Joyce and her husband both going at her simultaneously. I think there's a word for that. But I will say that Yolanda handled it in such an admirable way getting Brandi out of a potentially uglier situation.

This was also quite amusing and revealing. Joyce's self-righteous talking head, "If god could forgive what humanity did to his son who am I not to forgive Brandi for being such a stupid little bitch!" You are off your sanctimonious rocker lady. Did you just compare yourself to God? Talk about delusions of grandeur!

And thank god I wasn't there I would much rather be with my magiclal family. I honestly have the best time with my children. They are so healing. Our children are funny and kind of heart and soul. They are my life. We are a very close family. We always have been and as wild or inappropriate as some may think I am. My children are proof that you can be both. They are grounded, polite, and soulful. I refuse to lose my spirit just because some don't agree with my language or whatever. I live for myself and my family and no one else's negative opinion of me will effect or will change me.

Oooh golf looked fun. . .I'd probably play in platforms too.

Dan Sartor is a talented tattoo artist and an artist who we have known for years. David and I both decided to get tattoos to celebrate the birth of our son Cross, we already have tattoos with our girls' names.

For a gift last year David had a surprise pentagram necklace made for me by "King Baby" with our children's names engraved on it. Sometimes with silver jewelry it has no substance to it, it's flimsy, but 'King Baby' jewelry has some real weight. It's a solid gorgeous piece of jewelry. Dan loosely based his design around it. Yes, I know some may have an aversion to tattoos -- but again not really doing it for them now. Mine are all very symbolic and they make me happy.

I wanted a pentagram with my children's names around it. A pentagram is a five-pointed star which represents the elements -- Air, Earth, Fire, Water and Spirit being the goddess Mother Earth the top point. For me having this on my body sort of serves as a protective talisman deflecting negative energy and protecting my family.

Dan said if my girls wrote their names he could transfer their handwriting onto my tattoo. I was so excited to hear that. I couldn't imagine anything better than that! My babies with their permanent personally handwritten names on me forever! I f---ing love it. They were so excited to do it too. I'm not sure if I will get anymore, but one thing I have learned recently is never say never.

David's tattoo came out amazing too. He got a gorgeous cross on his right forearm with the names of his son, daughters, and me. It is so sexy on him.

I adore Lisa, but I do agree with Ken regarding Joyce's husband staying out of it. It definitely didn't look like Joyce needed back up -- she certainly wasn't at a loss for words. No man should be getting in two woman having a verbal argument.

Kyle's event at her shop benefiting the Children's Hospital Los Angeles is an amazing charity. I think anytime a person can afford and is in a position to donate to a charity makes such a difference. And if it can't be financial, then a donation of time is of equal importance to that charity too.

So yes, Kyle and I haven't seen eye-to-eye recently which she is very aware of. But my husband and I were there in support of the Children's Hospital Los Angeles and of course I'm going to be bloody cordial. It's absurd to think otherwise. It's not about her and I at that moment -- it's about a charity with children with real issues.

It was great seeing Brandi with Etrisa and Adrienne, her gorgeous long time model friends. I wonder if Joyce noticed anything striking about beautiful Etrisa. Seeing Adrienne and Etrisa and Brandi do their thing was like watching mercury. When a model is in her zone, she is so fluid and so graceful. It's beautiful to watch. When I was younger I was obsessed with Thierry Mugler and would watch his fashion shows, which were mesmerizing. His models had this air about them -- certainly not unhappy or mean, just in control.

Definitely the sweetest moment of the night for me though was watching Kyle's beautiful daughters Sophia and Alexia be part of this affair. They were wonderful. It was so endearing to watch and it made me think of our gorgeous girls, knowing Destiny would have wanted to be right up there.

Yes! Next week is my pole dancing class with girlfriends and tequila. In my opinion they do mix. Isn't it about time I let my hair down and had fun!?!

So that's it for this week. Have a magical and blessed week.

Lisa V.: How Many Scenarios Can We Excuse?

Lisa Vanderpump tries to make sense of what happened at the reunion and gives us an update on her life since. 

And here we have it...the final episode as the curtain drops on Season 5, the last part of this intriguing trilogy...

Firstly, it is almost too complicated to dissect, but let's try to have a better understanding of the complicated dynamic that materialized this season...

I think upon reflection, it has been pretty obvious after months of filming the intent of some to insert themselves into an already fractious situation. Kim obviously felt bolstered by BG, much to her detriment, as she became a victim of her own volatility. I doubt since filming has wrapped whether there has been much interaction between BG and Kim. It would surprise me greatly if this supposedly close relationship is still flourishing.

What concerned me this season was the manipulative attempt by BG to undermine Kyle and to validate any negativity that Kim was feeling.

There's not a lot to say that hasn't been said, really, but what concerned me this season was the manipulative attempt by BG to undermine Kyle and to validate any negativity that Kim was feeling, salaciously stating what a wonderful friend she was and how totally unsupportive Kyle has been. I don't believe the years of dealing with a sibling struggling with alcoholism, supporting financially when needed, should be ignored--also the emotional toll it must have taken on the family. This is a family that has many offsprings who love each other dearly, and that should be paramount. BG has no idea of any history, just a few short months under the glare of reality television.

Also in this final segment, it baffles me once again as to the arrogance as to state what is off limits. How many scenarios can we excuse? Dogs? Children? House? Sobriety? Our business became your business when we entered into your living room. We should strive for transparency, and we should deal with consequences as we profit from the benefits.

I have grown close to Lisa and Eileen and enjoyed them immensely, not always understanding Lisa's actions, but always believing it came from a place of concern, even if sometimes, like in regard to the text she sent, it was a little impulsive. Her anger got the better of her, and for that, I believe she was sorry. I am not making excuses for her, but I am resolute in the belief that provocation sometimes creates a day of reckoning.

My suggestion of putting a band aid on a situation is one of experience. Sometimes we reach for the unreachable, especially when it comes to relationships. Furthermore, we have to accept that idyllic relationships are not always obtainable, but what we should not accept is that the whole family infrastructure, which can be so delicate, would possibly be fractured--weddings missed, birthdays ignored, and all of life's moments punctuated, documented with regret.

So that is what I hope for this season, that the devious trifling is never rewarded by the success in the breakdown of any relationship. Last year, as I sat on my own, aghast at what had transpired, I hoped for a clearer picture, and now I have one, as I think you all do.

Snippets of downtime that have been aired this reunion--cups of tea requests, diarrhea jokes, pussy to the bathroom jokes, didn't know a Flex but definitely knew a Ford--are a great way of also demonstrating that there are giggles in the face of adversity.

Lastly, I would like to say a huge thank you to all of you, who have sent messages of love and well wishes in what has proved to be a trying week. The surgery has been a reminder of how sometimes the indomitable support of those close to you is so valuable, and I appreciate it tremendously. My children by my side, friends, and family are the icing on the cake. Thank you to you all. Ken is doing much better and is well on the way to full recovery.

I have appreciated your comments and enjoyed interacting with you.

Much love as always, 

Lisa
