Lisa Vanderpump

Lisa explains why she didn't entertain Joyce's drama, even if there might have been truth to some of her claims.

on Nov 26, 20130

And here we are again. . .another week has flown by. I think the circus was a brief respite from life's chores, funny moments coupled with challenges. A bit of fun -- but not one I would repeat.

As we meet on the rooftop a conversation was based on the fact that the paparazzi had accused Brandi of being a bully, also including me in the same story. I understood her wanting Kyle to put the story to rest. We both would, but Kyle said she had bigger problems dealing with tabloids, once again giving them credence that they don't deserve. . .

Nobody ever knows for certain what happens in peoples private lives. How could we? But I am certain that for the most part the stories that are concocted are nonsense. There is a different story every week attacking one of us. I have been there myself. We can't control what they say. But if they are printing our opinion and it's untrue, tweet something to the contrary. They all follow us and it is instantly diffused.

It seems clear that Brandi is intimidated by Joyce for one reason for another. It also seems clear that Brandi is immature and maybe not as educated as some of the other women on the show. She has a difficult time expressing herself without anger or tears.  Lisa has turned out to be a disappointment. At times she comes off as an intelligent woman but when it comes to Brandi all her brains fly out the window. Joyce deserves to be respected. Brandi needs a time out. Lisa needs to step back and stop embarrassing herself by defending Brandi who constantly makes a joke of herself.

I'm watching the series right now....I think Brandi is so funny.....but some people have a stick up their butt and take everything to seriously.

So maybe you know now that Kim and Kyle told the truth regarding remarks that Yolanda made about you in Paris last season.  You have gone after Kyle with a vengeance last season and this season, too.  You can't take it back either.  When you try to take down someone's husband - that will never be forgiven. Ever.

I think you are a Class Act!  I would stay clear of Brandi and Kyle.  Both of these women are jealous and have  insecurity issues.  I wish they would have left the show.  You and Yolanda are the only real rich ones on this show.

You're a favorite of mine and I love your shows.. But you do have an obligation to stand by your girlfriend. "Girl Code"... Keep your curiosities to yourself..

Kim & Kyle:

I don't think it was in good taste and nasty especially given what you went through Kim, to act out what you perceived as a fake faint at Dancing with the Stars practice for Lisa! Personally I don't know definitively but it look real to me!

I think Lisa although not anywhere near as friendly with Kyle as her eloquent husband is with Mauricio, should pay attention to his stated loyalty to a friend and respect such a very sensitive subject far too sensitive for idle gossip! Out of respect if not to Kyle and Mauricio certainly her husbands friend! I can't believe Lisa said "we don't know definitively" as if it's her business and she's Sherlock Holmes! She gave great advice to Stassi and she should practice what she preaches respecting a marriage as she does cancer!!!!!!

Lisa, be very careful. You are such an unforgiving person. Your husband was looking at you the other day in a very strange way. I don't care how long people are married, you should always strive to be a better person. It would be awfull if your husband decided one day that he didn't like you and did not want to be around you. Remember that guy that turned on your family and said that he hated you, work on being a better person from within and not just on being beautiful and rich. You are starting to look very ugly  and hateful these days. Rise above, you are blessed!

Yes, from the footage Joyce was just chiming in for airtime. But Lisa - EVEN YOUR HUSBAND insisted you should have stood by your friend Kyle!!! Unless this is all contrived as this seasons storyline and you all agreed to this I can't believe you are backstabbing Kyle like this. It's one thing when friends grow apart...but is the bravolebrity really worth stooping to this?

Lisa why are you throwing out such snarky comments so often, you have been hanging w/Brandi too long.

Lisa, I think some jealous people are trying to give you a rough time, and I lay it squarely at the feet of Kyle.  I noticed that Joyce does everything  possible to imitate Kyle, and thus her remarks.  She has no brain; it's been smothered by her hair, so pay no attention.  She is merely an irritating, immature mouthpiece.  You still reign as queen of the franchise, so keep your good humor and excellent manners and continue to rise above their antics.

Lisa, Lisa, Lisa... please stop being so back-biting and nasty. Your holier than thou attitude is ridiculous! I so liked you when the show started, but unfortunately now we see the real you. A bitter, spiteful woman!

Over all the seasons of this show, kyle went from the most loved to the most hated, camille went from being the most hated to the most loved, Adrienne went from being loved to hated, brandi went from being loved to hated... looks like lisa's turn to be hated is coming.... perhaps its time for us all to admit... we don't really know these people and its just editing!

Another thing, I fail to understand why Brandi feels that you must stop dealing with Scheana. Yes, she was with Brandi's husband but this was before either of you knew who she was. Should you fire a girl because of something she did to someone she didn't even know about, should you stop speaking to her because Brandi has the mental and emotional maturity of a 1 year old. Honestly Brandi's "woe is me my husband cheated" story has gotten old, she needs to move on FOR REAL.

Lisa, without you, I would be bored, but I would still watch.  I like Carlton, which shocked me.  I do not like hair flipping Joyce.  Kim I liked back in the day, so I still feel that.  I also feel sorry for her, that goes a long way with me.  Brandi is crazy as ever, but I like something about her.  YoYAWNda, is becoming boring to me.  Kyle, I try to continue to like, but she keeps sticking her foot in her mouth.  I love your new puppy.

I'd be truly surprised and really disappointed if Mauricio did something stupid. I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. He deserves it.

Seriously, Joyce must be so obsessed with HAIR that she had to bring up your hair - that is the only explanation I can think of at this time... I think she is just one hairy monster... and in her mind it goes something like this "hair hair hair hair hair".....  I thought she was ridiculous!  The only good thing about her is her clothes.. her husband also comes cross as a ditz (with more hair!!!)

Lisa, don't listen to these negative people who want you to leave the show.  Bravo made a huge mistake in hiring Brandi for this show--you can't mix trailer trash with people who actually have morals and class.  You tried to help her, but she's too stupid to realize an opportunity to better herself and decided to stay in the gutter--and hurt you in retaliation because she can never, ever be you.  People are not watching this show because her actions and mouth on- and off-screen have down-graded RHOBH to where they are embarrassed to watch some of the scenes with their children.  You, however, are the epitome of class.  You have so many attributes that so many people appreciate and want their children to emulate.  Nevermind the nastiness of some of the posters on this blog--you have always been witty and what's more, you are honest and say what you say right to the person's face, as opposed to the silence of some of the cast members who then try to destroy you behind your back.  They are jealous--simply jealous.  We all know you don't need this show--but we need you.  You're the one bright light in this mediocrity.  Let Bravo do its housecleaning at the end of the year--hopefully Brandi will be swept out the door as she deserves, and hopefully the Richards sisters too.  Love and respect you always--

Lisa, I am only writing to tell you that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE YOUR NEW PUPPY!! LITTLE RUMPY-PUMPY IS GORGEOUS!  I rescued a Lab/Pointer Mix when he was 3 months old and he is now going to be 5 years old in January and let me tell you, he has changed my life for the better. I am permanently disabled and have been through a lot with 25 major surgeries, I am going through some major money issues at the moment but I try to keep on going and what I believe gets me through my daily struggles besides the Good Lord (who is always FIRST for me), is my boy Jovy. Without him, I probably would not be here today. He gives me a reason to keep going and this is the first time that I have had a dog and I never knew such a beautiful animal could be such a joy! All I want to say is to PLEASE LOVE YOUR PETS AND ADOPT....ALL THEY WANT IS TO BE LOVED AND TO HAVE SOMEONE TO TAKE CARE OF THEM. Lisa, enjoy your new boy!! God bless and have a very happy holiday season!!

Lisa, - By now I hope you realize that Kim (ditsy as she is) was telling the truth about what Yolanda said saying that you were not her friend.  I don't particularly like Kim or Kyle anymore, but I saw that episode when Yolanda did say that and why would I lie.  Now you have to watch your back with Brandi too.  Lets face it, you have it all going on!  Some of the other women are envy of you.  Yolanda has a wonderful husband who is hardly around and Brandi can't seem to hold on to anyone!  You have 2 restaurants, your own tv show (where you are the boss)!  Your daughter is charming and elegant just like her mom and you two have a beautiful relationship! You have a wonderful demeanor about yourself and a great sense of humor.  Don't trust any of them!  I'm serious!  They are all cut-throats.  Ken is your only true friend on the show!  His love for you makes Brandi upset because she only can pray for someone to love her like that.  And Kyle doesn't want to deal with the truth about her man!  Keep your chin up, keep smiling and make that money!  That's it!  Much love!

It seems  this season of RHOBH there is a concerted and cruel attempt to take Lisa down.  Will be really hard to watch. Definitely not here for that. Team LisaV all the way.

Lisa, I genuinely think you are a great person and I enjoy you very much.  I think time will tell on who is truly loyal to you and who is not; maybe it already has and we just haven't seen it.  I knew that Brandi was bad for you but you have a big heart and want to help the underdog and see only the good things and shove aside the negative.  I love your business sense and success and hope that I can be as  bright and as successful as you are some day... You are a great role model for women.  It is ok to bite your tongue and show class even if you want to say STFU :)

The insidious Brandi, and the 'classy' Lisa. Ringleader one and ringleader two. One insults people with the vulgarity of a streetwalker, the other says it with her pinky in the air. Sorry gang, I'm still miffed that one of my favorite people, a husband, and father of young girls, (who has been nothing but respectful to all of the women), character was assaulted. Yeah, Yolanda chimed in too, and with her history, you would think she would have kept HER piehole shut. From the looks of next weeks preview, Lisa is still at it , to the obvious dismay of her husband. I wonder how she would feel if the group insinuated week after week, that Kens honor was in question? Say a hurtful thing once, you're just a jerk, say hurtful things over and over, you're a bully.

Lisa,

I think as a whole you are usually a good friend, but you do have an edge to you. I think you like being in charge of every situation and you don't really care to have true equals. In the past when friends have tried to call attention to your ego you blew them off, but you totally embrace having friends that make you look better. Also, why do you expect Brandi to be loyal when you spend so much time babying the woman who slept with her husband on Vanderpump Rules?

Lisa I've always seen the "chess playing" side of you and I've always liked it. You're a smart woman and you handle yourself with grace and class, the other women don't have the capacity to do it so their jealous that when even when you do some of the same things you come out smelling like roses and them like trash. Keep being you Lisa, and forget Brandi. I used to like her though I did think she needed to keep some of her "truth" to herself, now I think her head has gotten too big, so big that she thinks that she can bring down the Vanderfabulousness. Lol yeah right.

 @Serabbi I couldn't have said it better myself !!!  Andy please listen to us fans who like Beverly Hills the best.  I like the class, honesty and integrity of Lisa.  I like Yolanda too.  Please get rid of Brandi and the Richard sisters.  For myself I can't watch the Atlanta show and don't really like Orange county especially Vicki.  Actually there is too much fighting in all of them.  Beverly Hills was the only one that was fun to watch.  Love seeing the beautiful homes and grounds and nice life out there in beautiful California.

 Like you Cindy, I rescued Elvis from our shelter just in time, his days were numbered for sure..he's a jack russell/scotty mix and he has been wonderful entertainment for my husband and me.  I have Crohn's Disease, Neuropathy, Fibro, Osteoarthritis and Migraines, so I understand your health issue..haven't had 25 surgeries but have come very close to dying twice and can't believe I'm still here, but I am and I thank God every night and morning for keeping me here.  Have had serveral surgeries and Elvis is such a trooper..he gets under the covers with me after a surgery and moves so slowly as not to hurt me..I just pet him the whole time I'm in bed and he loves it so much he snores..hahahahaaaaaaaaaa  He's a bit over 8 and I'm a bit over 60..so have fun with Jovy and to you Lisa enjoy the pets they are a real blessing just as our children, grandchildren and even gr grandchildren are..we love them all.

 @lucky8 ITA.  Lisa has what the other women all covet -- true elegance and taste, manners and grace.  Plus she is the only one with a man who truly loves her and has been by her side faithfully for years.  Not so sure about Carlton and Joyce, we really do not know their stories yet, but Brandi is divorced from a guy who cheated on her, Yolanda's ex cheated on her and she is now married to a man who seems to change partners every 10 years or so, Kyle was divorced once and is married to a guy who likely cheated on her, Kim is just a sorry mess who has no man at all.

 @Picket@fence okay so this is more about the remarks made to the husband of your favorite person, Kyle. Maybe it should not have happened but Kyle has so little sympathy when these things happes to others and she often has been involved. Now that she is on the receiving end she wants the world to pause on its axis and it just doesn't work like that, it's called karma

 @alil.1012 I agree. Lisa is a friend to others when they behave the way she wants them to, but when they act differently, she only knows how to become snarky and distant.

 

Lisa, I like you, but give your friends a break sometimes. And maybe quit it with the cozying up to Scheana. It's one thing to be a good boss, but it's quite another to start acting like her personal mentor or mother.

 @alil.1012 Lisa has a business to run and that woman worked for Lisa before Lisa met Brandi. There is nothing wrong with Lisa maintaining that relationship, she she told her that her actions were wrong but she does not have to fire her for something that took place before Brandi joined the show

 @wareislarine  @Picket@fence  @fence Stated with such arrogance as if you were speaking of FACTS. Lay down your Kyle KoolAid and elaborate! Unless, you were there yourself to witness it, what have we seen and heard for ourselves on TV that Lisa did that?

Mauricio addressed Brandi like a normal adult. He didn't sugarcoat anything and gave her sound advice. Trashy Brandi started f-bombing him like the low class slob that she is. Just because Brandi is a female, I won't say woman, doesn't mean that Mauricio had to take her BS.

iheartdogs

 @JenniferFM  @alil.1012 They're all just co-workers now. Not real friends! I'm sure she has many long time friends. Sorry, if I have friends that did what any of these women (esp Kyle) did to Lisa, and on national tv for  millions to see, I would drop them... but not before I gouge their eyes out! All of them are not perfect but Lisa handles it with  humor and does it with such composure. That's why I admire her because I know I can't do it. I have not seen Lisa been mean to the core. Unlike the rest of the cast on game night, dinner from hell, outing addictions, stealing houses... I can go on and on.

Oh brendawalsh I will agree to disagree with you. And I completely disagree. Women who create scenes, and then are aghast when called to task are just phony troublemakers who crave the spotlight. Brandi seems the kind of girl who ticks a guy off at a bar and leaves it to her boyfriend to take the punches. tacky tacky tacky.

 @jaygreen06  @Picket@fence  @fence As the father to four daughters, he had no business speaking to a woman in such an aggressive matter. He inserted himself into a situation that had absolutely nothing to do with him. And absolutely BECAUSE she is a woman he should not have spoken to her like that. End of.
