Kim: Lisa's Faint "Looked like a Fakey"

Kim can't believe Lisa's digs at her sister (and Brandi) or her fainting on 'Dancing With the Stars.'

Well, I guess I have to start with Kyle's lunch. . .HA! First of all, it was very nice and relaxed! I enjoyed seeing all the girls sitting around and laughing about talking about fun things, and then the BEE! OH WOW! HA! That whole thing!! OMGosh! LOL! I like Carlton, and I just wish she had a better time! At the other lunch, it was a different story!

Once again, to watch Lisa diss my sister and Brandi! Insinuating that my sister doesn't have friends? And that maybe Yolanda should put her house on the market?!? And then turning to Brandi and telling her that she needs to exercise her brain! These kinds of comments have become all too common from Lisa. It was a very degrading comment but with a touch of humor! That's another one of Lisa's specialties! This kind of behavior is totally uncalled for!

When I first walked in and saw Portia sitting on the kitchen counter with her little missing tooth it brought back so many memories for me when my children were small. I would wait for them to go to sleep, and take their tooth and sprinkle fairy dust on their pillow and then put a silver dollar (or what ever the going rate at the time was) in place where the tooth was! So hard to believe that my babies are all young adults now. Little Portia is only just beginning to lose her teeth! Portia has just started to have overnights with me, so I guess my tooth fairy days are not over and it's time to stock up on the FAIRY DUST!

Kingsley is the sweetest dog in the world, and he's been there for me with unconditional love and affection through some very difficult times. He brings so much joy and happiness! My nephew Conrad found him on Craigslist and gave him to my daughter Whitney, and now he’s now found a home with me and Chad! As you can see, he can be a bit of a troublemaker. . .He's so loveable, but when he's not getting attention, he finds a way! He will go into my purse and take out my sunglasses, my makeup, my wallet. Anything to get my attention! He LOVES shoes, furniture, rubber bands, etc! I knew I had to call in a trainer! The trainer told me he’s very spoiled! You think??

When I spoke to the trainer, David Utter, he told me that Kingsley is not going to like the authority of a trainer and what he represents and that he could become aggressive with him. This is the first time I’m working with David, the only other trainers I have worked with were animal trainers on Disney movie sets and TV shows. He also said that Kingsley should have a choke collar and leash on when he arrives, because Kingsley may sense him on the other side of the door! Unfortunately, when David arrived, I was on the phone and distracted and I didn’t put the leash and collar on. Kingsley reacted just as David had said, but within a few seconds, he was back to himself! Kingsley and our family have been working with David, and you will get to see more of this wonderful dog! Dogs are worth all the work, they’re like babies! I love my dog!

As for Kyle and I watching Lisa on Dancing With The Stars… Well, when I first saw Lisa fainting, I thought what just happened? Then we watched again, and I saw that she was holding his hand while she gently laid herself to the floor? But she still had his HAND!?!  It looked like she was still holding, because she was afraid to fall to the floor!!! I have fainted on camera and in real life and that just looked like a FAKEY!!

Lastly, when Yolanda talked about not being well, and then to see her there in the hospital, I just thought about what a struggle this has been for her. When she mentioned how her kids come over and wait to see her and to be with her, I was so touched. It’s hard for me to see her struggle, and it’s been a rough year for her. Yolanda is a tough-ass, and to see her like that it gets to me. Whatever you’re going through, you look forward to phone calls from your kids, or the times they come to visit. I related to that. I’ve prayed a lot for her, and I love that David has been there to support her through this, he’s a great guy.

See you next week!

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.
