Lisa Vanderpump

Lisa doesn't know why her defense of Kyle's marriage isn't enough or why Brandi shared her makeout with the world.

on Dec 2, 20130

Here we are again. I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving. . .

Absolutely adored the segment in Hollywood this week. The joyous moment of witnessing David being recognized for his talent and commitment to the music industry. I was thrilled to be included and felt a sense of pride just witnessing it.

We then settle into a scene with Kyle talking to Mauricio about the tabloid stories that seem to dominate each week. But I suppose this is our reality. That's what we signed up for. It was front and center of a major magazine and to think that in the midst of the show, when a story reared it's ugly head that it wouldn't be discussed is ridiculous. In fact in the kitchen it was Kyle who initiated the tabloid conversation about her supposed pregnancy, which you keep seeing. I remember before I joked with Kyle I said. . ."Ugh its all ridiculous nonsense." Now she felt the need to discuss my lack of support?

After seeing their subsequent conversation I am glad I am alleviated from the responsibility of having to defend them. . .Fake support who says that?

Who does know what transpires in somebody's marriage? However I am adamant that what is printed in the tabloids is not to be relied on. Much has little merit. I have the sentiment that if Kyle doesn't believe it and he denies it, then that's good enough for me. Who cares what a tabloid says?

Lisa, I'm a huge fan. I have been from day one. I believe both you and Kyle have made mistakes and hurt each other and I look forward to the day you both truly forgive each other and resume your friendship. I'm do sorry Brandi seems to be turning on you. She is so low class and manipulating. I hope you haven't confided any secrets to her during y'alls  friendship because she clearly has a pattern of turning on her friends and telling their secrets. I liked Yolanda from the beginning, but she has made some mistakes as well but I am giving her a pass due to her illness. Please  stay strong and continue being the beautifull, intelligent, classy lady you are :)

Lisa, I love you...honestly you're my fav on this show.  But at least admit you're wrong.  Kyle was far and away better of a friend to you than Brandi and Yolanda were. 

 

Yes, Brandi started the faint-gate conversation in the limo and blamed it on Kyle.  Brandi started the conversation about Mauricio at Carlton's house, and Brandi blames you.  Brandi has developed a pattern of doing this and it will bite her in the end. 

 

I truly hope you, Kyle, and Kim can make amends with each other. Kim really seems to be genuinely hurt that you never reached out to her off camera between filming.  I think Kim needed friends a lot more than she would admit with going through all she was.  I pray that you will see that it's Yolanda and Brandi who set you up, not the Richards sisters.

Love you Lisa! This show is mentally exhausting, I honestly don't know how you tolerate each personality. I couldn't do it, Much love to your and yours.

Lisa did Kyle a FAVOR by being as nice as she has been about the whole thing. Kyle doesn't MISS an opportunity to bash someone, example: the fainting incident. Kyle is a crap friend, she got more defense from Lisa and Ken then she deserves.

Lisa,  Maybe you should cut your losses and get off of this show.  No one comes out unscathed it seems.  These women all turn on each other because that is the way it is set up. Extremely petty.  You and your life are too good for this.  Yo is too.  It is sad that you and she had mutual respect and because of the twisting and conniving you are no longer feeling that way. Hopefully, when you get away from this you will see things differently towards Yolanda and be friends again.

Lisa, you were my favorite on the show in the past.  Now you are my least favorite next to your cohort Brandi.  I cannot believe how mean you are.  It is just shocking   You, Yolanda, and Brandi are the mean girls on the show.  And I think it is terrible how you treat Kyle.  Kyle is right about you.  You are the one that was saying things about the cheating scandal with Mauricio.  Now all of a sudden you and Ken are saying oh no he never cheated.  How fake can you be.  We can all see this is staged just like your fake faint on DWTS.  It is sad that a person with your wealth and status has to be so petty.  I mean life is too short.  I think you owe Kyle and Mauricio a big apology.  It is just like the times you sold stories to the tabloids about Adriene. You do things and then claim you are innocent.  And your show Vanderpump rules is so sleazy.  I stopped watching after two episodes.

Lisa, you constantly hold everyone to a different set of standards then yourself.  What's good for the goose is good for the gander.  You've become such an egomaniac since your first appearance on this show and it's such a shame bc you were once such a lovely inspiration.  My best wishes that you find yourself soon before you lose your support system.

Have you ever heard you give what you put out? Maybe Kyle is just realizing the kind of friend you are. I think you instigate ALOT of Brandi's nasty behavior, because you fear if you showed the ugly side you lose popularity. You egg on the girls on Vanderpump Rules, I used to like you, but once you alligned yourself with trash, I started to smell you, and its not so good. Now it seems the tables have turned and your the odd man out. Yolanda and Brandi can't bring the Richard sisters down, so now its your turn....your reaping what you sowed...sucks doesn't it?

Lisa It is not your role to defend Kyle or her husband, correct? Kyle has beeen morebthan candid in her comments about everyone both to their face and behind their backs. I admire you and have always been a fan. You are the one housewife who consistently did not bad mouth others behind their back so keep being true to yourself and do not let the wannabe's get you down.

Lisa, you come across as above the law always holding yourself to a different set of standards then everyone else.  What's good for the goose is food for the gander.

Brandi, Lisa and Yolanda continue to preach about how they aren't bullies but they clearly act like a group of high school catty girls constantly criticizing the other ladies on the show. Brandi and yolanda act superior to the other women and they act as if they can behave in anyway but the other ladies have to constantly watch their behavior or they get attacked... you ladies are hypocrites.  I used to be fans of Brandi and Lisa but you ladies are just reminding me of high school.  Kyle keep staying out the drama and away from the "mean girls".

I cannot believe that you're the same person that I always liked and thought was such a classy lady boy did I ever have you wrong you're a kiss ass to Brandy who is a total tramp and you will turn into the ultimate mean girl I am disgusted watching you and I'm no longer watching the show

Love you, Lisa. Hang in there. 

 

The complaints about you are so hypocritical. Maybe, just maybe, you might just sit in the reunion and smile and say "whatever". You were hurt by that? Sorry. No explanations. No nothing. After all, why bother?

We have yet to see the full season and no one in the audience knows how this is all going to play out. I am more than a fan, I am your admirer - you are a strong and beautiful woman, you have an excellent work ethic and you are vastly intelligent. All of your cast members keep going on about how you are not a good friend yet I have seen none of them be a good friend to you. Not ever. Brandi included. Whatever happens during this season, you have my full support. All the best to you and your family.

Lisa is the most contradicting woman ever. You talk what's good but do the complete opposite. The same way you reacted about Adrienne accusing you of selling stories you demanded an apology I think you owe Kyle an apology. How can you not respect Kyle for standing in Adrienne's defense and not taking yours? Adrienne wasn't there and you were and need no defending. The problem this season is the same things you were accused of season 2 you're now being accused of again. Coincidence much?i don't think so, I think you do talk to the media and tell them what they want to hear then back away like nothing's happened. It's funny tho because you're a mass manipulator. You're very smart but your intentions are off. I think you and Kyle made the perfect bond well on camera anyway. It's saddening to see how you can manipulate the viewers to take your side when Kyle was doing something a real friend would. I'm sure if the shoe was on the other foot had you not been there Kyle would've stood in your defense. Brandi is no real friend to anyone I just don't see you befriending her other than for camera time

Lisa you are so insincere its clear that you are not even aware of how offensive you have been Kyle and her family.  You had no business making the comment about mauricio and young girls in front of his child.  You are so rude. Why don't you relocate to New York where you can get a taste of your game playing.

Now that I have read your blog, I agree with what you said even though it did not come off as nice. Maybe from your own experience you know that it is not 100% sure that a husband has been fully faithful to his wife. Even though it isn't nice, it's the harsh reality.

Just saw Kyle on Wendy Williams and Kim on Bethanny, both running their mouths about what a mean girl Lisa is.  NOTHING BUT PURE JEALOUSLY from both of them.  

 

They are the goodie two shoes they like to make themselves out to be.

Kyle is not Lisa's friend nor has she been for quite a while now. Lisa publically defended Kyle's marriage but why does she have to keep doing so? What was Kyle doing when her friend Taylor accused Lisa of putting stories in the tabloids about her husband and herself and then let others turn her friend away from her party because of threats to one of Mauricio's clients? What was Kyle doing when her friend, demoted to acquaintance, Adrienne accused Lisa of selling stories to the tabloids? What was Kyle doing when her bestie Faye went after Lisa at Lisa's own home?  Kyle zip it now and let those pesky rumors go away.

Lisa you definitely have my sympathies dealing with all these women bringing you down. Who knows why they are so jealous of you. I can certainly guess for one you've been married to the same man for thirty years. Two you have the Midas touch all your dealings turn to gold. Three everybody lives u. By ganging up on you and trying to break you down and off the show. Your such a challenge to them. Plus your the prettiest and brightest. You can be my friend anytime

You are wrong Lisa. If people were saying that about your marriage you would go nuts.

I adore you, Lisa, but your remarks to Ken became very passive aggressive toward Kyle/Mauricio.  I am very objective and you are my favorite, but I call a spade a spade.  I loved how Ken stood up for Mauricio.  That was my favorite moment of the show, his utter allegience to him.  I didn't expect your utter allegience to Kyle because of your problems, but you definitely egg that conversation on.  Still love you and find Brandi's comments in her last blog about you puzzling, the way she is going after you this season and backstabbing you all season.  Team Lisa.

As for me and my friends its never a chore to stand in the gap d defend them.Not a chore. It is my pleasure. That's what  friend do. Ken gets it. Lisa not so much.

I wish Kyle would stop singling Lisa out and trying to paint her as a fake friend. Lisa has no reason to trust 

Klye ever  after  vicious attacks at the reunions. Kyle is the "Real Phony in This Town"!!!!

Lisa you are on a show with a bunch of hypocritical biatches!! I feel for you!!  I will start with Kyle, I think its pretty ironic that Kyle is mad at you about the tabloid rumors! Especially when she went on national television and accused you of actually selling stories to the tabloids!! Geez! As far as Mauricio is concerned WOW isn't he the same person who said to you last season "who gives a sh*t" in regards to the character attacks on you?! I guess when his character is in question its not okay??! Yolanda to me has become Brandi's co signer! She is criticizing you for a conversation you had with your daughter about moving across country?! WOW coming from the mom who told her seventeen year old light headed daughter to eat an almond....  and chew it well??! Are you kidding me? I guess Yolanda doesn't understand not every girl is genetically blessed like Kendall Jenner?! and I don't recall reading anything in your blog about that?! and I'm pretty sure you had an opinion?!  Kim is just awkward period! I truly think she needs to step away from the camera's regroup, reevaluate and maybe in the future come back! Brandi is a hot a$$ mess! She has taken two faced bia*ch to a new level. She criticizes you for joking around about having a swing in her bedroom?! Yet she has basically created her entire existence on being a scorned, over sexual, drunk and forty something?! Excuses! in my book! Brandi is gunning for you! She is setting it up in her blog! and as of late her blog definitely doesn't coincide with the episode?! Joyce I'm not so sure about..... I think the hairgate incident was so ridiculous! I almost felt sorry for her! However I thought what she had to say about Brandi and Yolanda was very telling! Carlton...  I need to see a little more of her! She seems to read people (Kyle) pretty accurately! But on one hand she claims to be a girls girl.. She likes to see woman lift up other woman! and on the other hand she is tight with Brandi? that kind of makes me think she is full of it?!   So basically Lisa you are why I watch the Rhobh........

Me thinks thou doest protest too much, Lisa.  You have no rationalization to justify bringing up Mauricio cheating on Kyle in front of their daughter.  If the tables had been turned, and it was your young daughter, you would have gone bullistic.  What a hypocrite.  Joking about being pregnant doesn't give you an open door to stir up the rumors about Mauricio.  And people certainly do have the abiltiy to believe in what kind of character their friends have.  You know a tree by its frutis.  Mauricio is loving, attentive to his wife, and a wonderful father.  You are what your actions are.  I think you are jealous of Kyle's marriage to such a stunning and devoted husband.  Ken was an example of a true friend.  He knows Mauricio's character from years of friendship.  He is not a cheater.  He has never displayed a deceptive, lying, phony, back stabbing personality that a cheater has.  Never.  Cheater's have no integrity, or honor, in any aspect of their lives.  Mauricio is not one.  You just wish he were.  Grow up.

I admire your resilience in dealing with the multiple personalities (sometimes of the same person!), of these RHOBH. Myself, I would be losing the ability to squash my impulse to smack them upside the head! But, alas, I can't claim to possess the charm and diplomacy with which you conduct yourself... So glad that you are on this show! Your presence is the cornerstone of its popularity.

Kyle is no one's friend.  She thinks she can continually demean you and join in with Adrienne in her attack and simply say "I'm sorry" and you should forgive her and go back to being the same friends as you once were---she's delusional.  She clearly doesn't know the meaning of the word friendship---the fact that you're talking to her at all is a miracle because she is still backstabbing you.  She's not worth your time.  You're the only reason I still watch the show.  Brandi is going off the deep end and seemingly has a very short memory of how you and Ken had her back continuously.  Perhaps she's just getting to be too overwhelmed (in her mind) of her success????????  Not worth your time---she's no friend to you.  Stay away from Kyle - she backstabs everyone on the show and then wonders why most normal people don't want anything to do with her.  My God look at the way she went after Brandi's children---who does that?????

Lisa - You accused Kyle's husband of only being nice because he wants to make commission in your circle of friends. That is a real low blow considering you are using this show to market your two restaurants and your new venture. That is the smart. However, you act as if you think he is cheating on Kyle. I think you hope it is true. It is so obvious. I don't think you expected Ken to say it was garbage. Clearly, your ex BFF wanted this to be true and wasn't giving Kyle a heads up. She wanted to make Kyle feel bad. She could have sent her a text, email or called her. But no Brandi ran her mouth so she could "stick it" to Kyle. And you loved it.

 

Who is going to be your friend on this show? Brandi is fair weathered. She is unstable and has played the victim role over the divorce far to long. Kyle, Kim and the sweet (not Carlton) new housewife are not going to be there for you. So have fun with Brandi and Carlton and that bunch of crazy employees at Sur. I wouldn't eat there. My Lord what would you find in your food, who has tasted your food, etc. And you must think it is great for people to have affairs because Sur is where the men being their dates. Villa whatever is where he takes his wife. So nice you have those demographics covered.

Hypocrite is what you are.

Interestingly, there is one letter of the alphabet that Lisa has come to embrace a BIT to much:  I, I, I, I, I, I, I.  It has truly become a 'ME' FEST with Lisa, and it MOST UNATTRACTIVE.  I USED to adore her, found her beautiful (she still is), classy (not nearly as much as she was, believes too much of her own press,)  bright (oh yes, for all of HER businesses, all of HER successes...)   I'm actually very sad the Pandora and Jason are going in to business with Lisa, just another way for MUMMY to keep control, keep them where SHE wants them and to keep their wings CLIPPED.  Poor Max had to high tail it AWAY from CA in order to cut his Mommy's grip on him. LISA, LET GO.  For heavens sake... OF ALL OF IT!  You are NOT the matriarch of RHoBH, nor of ANYTHING other than YOUR home and YOUR restaurants.  Even THAT should be enough for your ego.

When Taylor was outed for abuse by her husband, Kyle her good friend said "I never saw it & I don't know if it happened". But when Lisa didn't stand up & shout to the world that Mauricio didn't cheat she's now a bad friend. Lisa said it about her own husband. She said to Ken something like "I can't say for 100% that you haven't cheated, I'm not with you all the time". Why does Lisa have to announce that Mauricio hasn't cheated when she doesn't know if he has or hasn't?

Oh poor Lisa. At least your husband had the dignity to deny the rumors while you continued to leave the door open to speculation. You knew what you were doing and it wasn't very nice.

@kspuddin if you actually watched Kyle on Wend, she didn't say anything. Wendy asked a lot of presumptuous, probing questions and Kyle threw up her hands and didn't say much of anything. When it became obvious that Kyle wasn't gonna say much, Wendy moved on to the subject of her nephew. Can't speak for Kim because I don't watch Bethany.

 @freedomlover   She made a joke and Kyle took it to another level.  Lisa didn't say anything wrong by saying that remark about not knowing 100% about a man not cheating.  It was a statement that again, Kyle took out of context.  Why would Lisa wish that Maurico cheated on his wife?  Now you know what Lisa is thinking?  Come on!

 I would like you to sit down and quietly think about what you have written.  Kyle-store, Mauricio-real estate (more than one show) and Kim-AA and dog training.

 @lovesucks123  If you notice, most everyone on the show is marketing something...especially Kyle.  Kim and Kyle are even trying to hock their sisters clothing. They even promoted Paris Hilton's concert last year.  Kyle was even trying to drum up business for her friend Faye.  Brandi is trying to sell books.  Adreinne was trying to sell anything she could. And it was Kyle who admitted that her husband was going to be upset that she and Camille were at odds because she didn't want him to lose Kelsey and Camille as clients.  Lisa is at her restaraunts because she works at them most of the day.  On top of that, Kyle is always insulting Lisa.  If you went to one of her restarants, the ambience would defenentely go south from all the hate fumes spewing from you.

 @jewelofthenorth Lisa said in her blog she she had mixed feelings about going into business with Jason,. She was worried it would change their relationship.and personally, I think it is normal for a mother and father who has a great relationship with their children to want them to stay close.  I  disagree with your new opinion of Lisa. Yes, I believe she has made some mistakes, but don't we all?

@Fromtheshowmestate @piperbeau I'm beginning to think that there are a whole lot of first time watchers here or people with short memories. The whole reason that Lisa and Kyle were distanced last season was because when Adrienne accused Lisa of selling stories to the tabloid Kyle said nothing to defend Lisa and Brandi later said this was because they had a meeting before the reunion to all side against Lisa....hence what Piper said about Kyle

CrazyKoolaid

 @Fromtheshowmestate  @piperbeau

 FTSMState - Agree!  Have read this many times w/Lisa fan's posts.  Found it confusing as I don't remember Kyle once accuse Lisa of selling stories.  Must be that when one hasn't the factual knowledge to 'chime-in'....wisely remain silent in not choosing either side, is shown as a betrayal....which again, find confusing.
