Lisa Vanderpump

Lisa didn't agree with Brandi's choice of words at Carlton's luncheon.

on Nov 18, 20130

And so the story unfolds...

Thank you for all the supportive comments and understanding last week. I absolutely hate reliving that moment of weakness and unfortunately it spills over to beginning of this episode.

It was a terrifying moment when I decided to dance that Monday as I had been ordered by the doctor to rest for two days. All that time my blood pressure and temperature were monitored, and I really had no rehearsal, but Gleb and I knew if we withdrew that week we would be eliminated for sure. So we were damned if we did and damned if we didn't! I must add that my partner, who was new to the show, apart from being absolutely gobsmackingly gorgeous was an adorable man that I bonded with emotionally. We clung to each other through the eight weeks of our experience. One of the reasons I have loved sharing my journey with you on reality TV is to relish and savor the joyous and defining moments in our lives -- my daughter’s wedding, my son returning from school the first time all those years ago, our thirtieth wedding anniversary -- many moments I now have forever documented.

I smiled at the unequivocal support from my husband and daughter after being voted off, to them, blinded by their loyalty to me, I should've stayed till the end. That is one of the reasons why I love them as their indomitable support is what carried me through.

I used to like Lisa but not anymore.

Well the paparazzi should have added Lisa and Yolanda to the bully list. I used to love Lisa and her other show but I stopped watching Sur episodes. I think Lisa and Brandi are trying to bump Kyle off the show like they did Adriene.

Lisa... you use to be one of my favorite characters of all the housewife shows.   However, your choices to back Brandy and her flat vulgar remarks and mean girl spirit toward Kyle and Kim has sickened me.   Lisa... be the person you use to be .  See who Brandy is .  She is not  a plus for you.   She is trashy trouble and taking you down with her.

Lisa, dahling, why, oh why on Earth would you be friends with trailer trash Brandi.  She will never be anything more than that no matter how wealthy she gets.  She can marry a king and be a queen and her gut personality would still be trailer trash.  Her foul mouth, her immoral sexual behaviour is so far left of who and what you are, at least I thinks so.  

 

She's is not to be trusted so have a care because she is starting to turn on you.  Get rid of her please.

Lisa--I still like you although I think you (and the others, too) have lost your sense of humor (oops humour :)) about a lot of things. Don't like Carlton at all, and Brandi, I'm afraid is too much to continue to watch for too much longer. Love Vanderpump Rules and would love to see your new bar--Pump--as a Bravo show. Maybe it's time to vacate HW and just do the bars shows. Love Ken, too--he's a supportive and wonderful partner--you lucky woman!

I like Lisa but what irks me about her is her lack of sense of humour towards herself. She joked about Kyle's husband's flings in the kitchen however she takes offense to the teasing about her faint.

On the other hand, Lisa has proven that she has terrible taste in others...remember her friend Cedric that turned out to be a liar? So then she has Brandi who is now also proven herself to be a liar?

Lisa needs to buy herself a liar radar.

Wow, where did the "lady Lisa" go?? Lisa you have become what you despise in other woman. Shame on you! Kyle is not to blame. Your standards have reached an all time low.

It surprises me that a sophisticated woman such as yourself would find anything about Brandi interesting or amusing. You should give her a job at SUR. She would fit in real well there..............just saying!  When her run on Housewives comes to an end, the only way she will be able to earn two nickels will embarrass her kids more than anything anyone has to say about her!

You will forever in my mind be that gorgeous lady that wrote the delightful cookbook. Whenever you write your blogs, it's like sitting by the fire listening to the continuance of a scintillating tale. It reminds me of the relationship you might have had with your grandmother, her kindness to you that you are sharing with the viewers. I just adore you.

You quickly dismissed it and then you quickly agreed where there is smoke there is fire. Which means that there is truth to it.  Come on you know that.

Are you kidding me? You had the nerve to sit in Kyle's kitchen and disrespect her husband in front of their small child? You are really heartless.  You would of had a fit if anyone said something like that to your grown "princess" of a daughter.  You are really something and if I were Kyle, I would never have anything to do with you again.

Lisa is at heart, sweet, Brandi's influence has been cringe worthy, to see Lisa indulge her the past two seasons is pretty sick to watch. To see Lisa act catty seems out of character. I would hope her attraction to strays will subside, not likely. Now Carlton is another hostile b to beware of. Hopefully Yolanda has figured Brandi out in time to curb the residual damage, who knows what she will spill on Yolanda, now that she rightfully  sides with the father of her children. Brandi has no right to set fires, but she will never understand. Brandi makes herself the victim, bad rearing.

Lisa remember the girl Jax was with right after Stassi...well she is in the movie The Millers...she plays a stripper along side Jennifer Anniston.  Lisa you were so supportive of her and now look where she landed.  It shows how compassionate a person you are to others.  As far as Brandi, I think it's sad that she needs to be so vulgar to get attention.  It's just one thing after another with her mouth flying in all directions.   I have a feeling your turn is coming with her....... watch your back!

I don't know what is more annoying, you on housewives, or you on the idiotic Vanderpump Rules. Get off the throne queenie, you look ridiculous.

Love you Lisa!!   Always have- always will!!  It's official!! You represent a level of grace, intelligence, and class that the other women don't even come close to.  Yolanda can exhibit these qualities but there have been times when I am not sure of her positions and why she says certain things- I think she has been through a lot with her illness, so will pray for Yo to get back to full health.  You also!!

 

That aside, you certainly have to put up with a lot of silliness and cattiness from so called :"friends . Kyle, Kim, and Brandi are the most egregious- the 3 of them borderline on just plain hateful childishness.  I'd stay far away from them.

 

Your humor is endearing and really funny!!  Please keep on being you- I take a lesson from seeing how you let most of the negativity roll off your back and when you do have to deal with something- you take a firm and true position and deal with it head-on.  Thank you for being a great role model.  I would love to have a friend like you!!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!  xx

Never understood your obsession w brandie, she is st trashy I just don't get it- guess her true colors are showing"

So sad... I used to be your biggest fan. Your true colors are starting to show. Unfortunately some viewers remember things you've defended Brandi on and now all of a sudden it's not ok and she's lying just because you're having a falling out with her? Same thing happened with Kyle who I believe now.

Lisa you were my fav not so much anymore...Nasty comments...Being catty...acting as if your joking...Well its not funny its offensive.Let go of season 2 reunion...Your starting to appear bitchy.

Yes, Brandi is disgusting, but I just saw a video tour of your home and I think it looks hideous! What a mess. Nothing about your home makes sense. It seemed crowded, cluttered and dated. Sort of like your expired hot mess of a friend, Brandi. Even her name...Brandi...not a very refined person, is she? I know you keep trying to present yourself as a sophisticated person, Lisa, but you are not. You seem quite the opposite.

O K, fun is fun but Brandi is way out of line with Kyle and the reported infidelities.  Being hurt by Eddie Cibrian does not give her license to hurt others the way she was hurt by the tabloids, in fact she should be more sensitive!  As for Lisa's faint,  it looked staged to me, but I am not a medical expert.  If she wanted off DWTS, she should have asked, just like Valerie Harper did.  It is rigorous for anybody, Marie Osmond truly fainted, and went on to dance the following week, Lisa was going to be voted off and she knew it, so either way she got her way.  No big deal!

Hang in their Lisa, they have pushed you to throw the so called shade, but grab your self respect back.. in a hurry.  You are the best woman on the show, as authentic as they come.

There won't be any new revelation about Lisa that will make me think any less of her. Keep in mind that it will be coming from her cast mates which are so jealouse and desperate to bring her down to their level. Whatever Lisa said,sold or told someone was fair after what these vipers have done to her since season one. Kyle deserves any mean thing Lisa aledgelly did most of all. Lisa trusted her blindly and Kyles jealousy became a dagger in Lisa's chest in front of America. I will never forget Lisa's face. Lisa has a good core and that is what counts.

Love watching you Lisa! Ignore the Richard sisters because they are really struggling to stay on the show. BTW why is Kim still on??? And Brandi has to go home too! She is a mess and needs to work on her Psychological issues but not on this show because we are board watching her nonsense behavior trying so hard to create some drama in hopes of getting some camera time. She has no class but we know that she already knows that!

Stay true to yourself Lisa because that's what we love to watch.

Brandi's behavior is despicable. Lisa has defended her and supported her. I never saw Lisa deliberately disrespect Brandi in her absence and in the presence of the other housewives. Brandi maliciously implied that she thought Lisa was faking the faint. I saw the faint. It looked genuine to me, and who cares anyway? Lisa is a diva, that is accurate. However, she is smart, classy, and her demeanor is far more refined than any of the "housewives". Lisa needs to sever the ties to Brandi. Lisa is a quality person. Brandi lacks any self regulation. Pathetic.

Watching old episodes... I hate to even point this out because I'm Team Pump but remember how you felt when Adrienne was allowing Bernie to say mean, hurtful things about you? It isn't exactly the same situation because Brandi has been deeply hurt by Scheana in the past but I think there is a part of Brandi that feels like she "lost" to Scheana AGAIN because Scheana is so close to you, still has a job and continues to talk back to Brandi. I don't think she has forgiven her and I think it hurts her that you still employ her.

I also think we should bring back Faye, I would live to see her condescending attitude towards brandi dissipate and be replaced by a bag of roses.

 Adrienne did that all by herself. She failed to show up to the reunion. how in god's name is that Lisa and Yolinda's doing? This is how these confusion and lies and untruths get started.

 Water seeks it's own level and Lisa did the hiring. Lisa was probably as obnoxious as they are when she was their age. Actually, I think Lisa is too old to be on the show anymore.

 @shapi8854

 Lisa is the manipulator and loves seeing someone else in the hot seat.  She's no lady. Don't let the voice fool you.  She's going to get her turn.  It's beginning now.  Yolanda sick, on housewives and her husband is always gone. Duh? He's going to dump her.

 @Bigwednesday

 It takes a liar to know a liar. She gravitates to liars because she is one.  Ken wanted to retire years ago but she keeps entering into one thing after another.  They're both too old for the show.

 @Bigwednesday She makes fun of herself all the time. Sexless marriage. In the next episode she ask Ken whats come of them, as they both seem to be falling apart. She made jokes about her being nude in movies. Kyle also made jokes behind her back about her nips showing - and we didn't hear her complaining. The power of suggestion from the other women has worked on viewers, eh? Watch Lisa.. She is the butt of many jokes. Even about her butt being fake. Someone saying she fakes a faint isn't funny. It's not a laughing matter... Brandi makes jokes about herself being dumb.. Even asking Bravo Andy to dumb down his vocabulary for her. But when Lisa made a joke about her brains she took offense. The other women make fun of her not having sex.. They made jokes about her and Gleb.. The difference here is the quips they make. If it's funny, it's funny. But when someone is being critical about everything about you - such as: Kyle's remarks to Lisa last season on holding grudges, etc.. that is not the same thing Lisa does to them. Not at all the same. And they do make jokes about Lisa too, that are funny and similar to the ones Lisa makes about them. They're basically using Lisa's personality against her. I know a lot of people who make jokes all the time. Very quick-witted. It's what makes them who they are. I guess people can't just accept others for who they are any longer and that is someone the other persons fault. If you'll pay close attention - it goes both ways with the jokes - and Lisa only make quips quick about things the women make fun of themselves for. Kyle is blatantly rude - like Jill Zarin was - in her attempt to be like Lisa.

 @jodikelley I don't think Lisa was agreeing with that statement, I think she was just making Yolanda's opinion clear to everyone.

 @jodikelley

If you watched the entire scene, it was Lisa who told Kyle and the rest of the ladies that it is ridiculous to put any stock to what the tabloids say as they are all public figures and are targets for that. The 'where there's smoke' comment came from Lisa helping Yo finish HER train of thought that even tho most of the stories are BS, some do contain 'some' version of truth. Brandi expanded on it by saying she DIDN'T believe the rumors, only to be sorry she was such a fool for NOT believing them.

Again, Lisa said 'her advice to Kyle would be to ignore the RUBBISH'!

I wish they would ALL get over addressing the BS in these rag mags!

 @Petunia2

 They're all mean. Look how Kyle treated Kim on that show....she took her down, and Kim sticks up for her.  Kyle was awful to her own sister.  She's just getting back what she dished out on her sister last year. This show brings out the worst in all of them. That's what it is about and the fact that we're all talking about them is what Bravo wants and feeds on.

 @Petunia2

 Bravo to a very astute observation. I agree about giving Lisa a free pass because she has to respond to Kyle's constant lies and insults. My hope would be that Brandi stays away from Kyle's brainwashing. The minute last season was over, Kyle took Brandi to dinner and probably did imitations of Lisa exactly the way Kyle does. What gets me is that Kyle is over correcting and jumping off cliffs. She needs to be quiet, get centered and just be an honest person without the hidden agendas.

 @rachel.n.lee.7 If they're good friends, then Brandi can go and talk to Lisa about her feelings instead of publicly bash her.

How can Kyle ignore it when Lisa keeps bringing it up? Don't let her fool you she knows exactly what she is doing and it is deliberate.  Isn't it ironic that she would have the nerve to talk that way in front of Kyle's husband and daughter, but can't take a little kidding about the faint.

 @imarelic100 It's not rude or idiotic to dislike Lisa. Hate much? what are 12 years old? There are so many reasons ti dislike Lisa, but in short she is annoying, tacky and mean spirited. Sorry, but it's absolutely idiotic for you to  criticize me or anyone else because you somehow expected other viewers of the show to have the same opinion as your own.

 That would be the mature thing to do but Brandi knew Schenna worked there last year & it didn't prompt this behavior...
