Lisa Vanderpump

Lisa explains that her strategy was for Brandi to stop making an ass of herself and to save Kim some of her dignity.

on Dec 16, 20130

Thankfully the next day we actually had a giggle and relationships improved.
I pray. . .not on the weak. . .but I pray often. Still I cannot fathom the need to drop to your knees in public next to the trash, with a camera crew beside us in a public place, which always creates attention. It is a good example of why I have little understanding of Kim's logic. . .or lack thereof.

I had to leave the wonderful weekend early, as I was hosting an event for the magazine I write for. Honestly though, I hightailed it out of there -- thankful I had a prior commitment!

When I viewed the phone call about Chica, it tore at my heart. I had sent Brandi back in to her house to kiss them goodbye as she was leaving, having chastised them. She was thankful for that as it was the last time she would see Chica. It was so pertinent for me as I understood her love for her little furry friends. We never know what life holds for us..

So there we have it. Another week riddled with complications. I hope you all have a safe and productive week. I am still immersed in construction, but believing I can see light at the end of the tunnel. . .Until next week. . .

Love always Lisa.

Hi Lisa,


This episode where the witches (Carlton isn't the only witch!) ganged up on you was disgusting to watch. Ken was absolutely correct; it was an out and out full on attack...they were like snipers and were gloating about this confrontation  before the vacation when, by the way, this could have been discussed, not during what is supposed to be a nice trip.


I felt terrible for you attempting to justify yourself when, I think, you needn't have dignified that garbage with a response. The women don't deserve it, you don't have to grovel for friendship and they don't even deserve a chance from you.  Dump them...they were lucky to even be permitted in your circle, oh, and that brings me to 'the girls'.


Kim is a (in my opinion) dry drunk, mean and nasty as a snake.  Her mouth got bigger after she got sober and it appears that she's suffered some fried brain syndrome too...she's an annoying twit...calling Ken out...I had to laugh after thinking of the Bulldog boyfriend she was with on the last big vacation.  She's been resting on her laurels since her childhood acting career. PLEASE, spare me.

Yolanda?  I knew she was a pot stirrer the first time I saw her on the show, ditto for Brandi to whom you and Ken gave some credibility or she would have been nothing. Scheana didn't cause her divorce; she is divorced because she's a common, low life, classless drunk. Your kindness was wasted on her and you are better off now. She is a social climber but, without her friends she won't last too much longer....like a comet, she'll burn out. Joyce's husband knew of what he spoke, had her pegged as soon as he met her and he is thankful, as you should be, that he doesn't have to interact with her again.

Don't know yet what to think of Joyce.  She's a gorgeous woman and appears to be sweet but I'll reserve an opinion until I see more of her

Carlton? Forget it.  She is, again in my opinion, a degenerate; common and spiteful. Kyle did nothing to her, she was just being curious, wasn't looking for trouble, but Carlton almost spat her venom in Kyle's face.  No, this one has to go.  She adds nothing to the show...horrible person. But, when they attacked you she consoled you. Don't align yourself with her Lisa...she's garbage and can only bring you down.

Which brings me to Kyle.  I have heard you say, "Kyle is a good girl." Perhaps she is.  I think she cares for you but is being fed lies by these gossip mongering fish wives.  The 'FISHWIVES of BEVERLY HILLS' would be a better show for them...all of them and, again, I am excepting Joyce as  have yet to get a handle on her.


Maybe there's a chance with Kyle but if she continues to consort with the others then I would consider her "collateral damage." They can't carry your cute pick sneakers.  You re a classy, sweet and wonderful lady who is the fairest of the all, on ANY Bravo show. ....lady being the operative word. Chin up and Hi to Giggy and Ken

Lisa, you really need to stop being so dismissive of Kim. Her delivery may be a tad off, but her messages are usually kind ones, or ones of constructive confrontation where she is trying to get certain people to own up to past comments or behaviors (Yolanda, Brandi) and then tries to get them to move on. If Kim shows the slightest bit of confusion or asks for any clarifications, you dismiss her with very condescending eyes, words, and voice. Can't imagine how you would be if your husband Ken were to show any signs of confusion due to age-related illnesses. Have a heart, Lisa! You have let all the celebrity trappings go to your head. Remember, what goes around, comes around. If Brandi's and Yolanda's looks are any indication of things to come, you are next on their target board. Stand above it. Show that you are a real human being with integrity.

Lisa…. shame on you!  Your "mean-girl" behavior will come back to you…

Lisa, I think when you see the shows played out you will see the mean faces you make as you enjoy others pain. Brandi says something cruel and you support her with your smile. I thought you had so much class and stability in the beginning...no more. A person with real class treats everyone with dignity...Brandi is playing the poor me card. Perhaps you both can take a trip downtown LA and work in the women's mission to bring you both to reality. I live in a beautiful area of LA and work downtown...try it. Not a gala event wearing beautiful clothes. I wish Lisa would come back.

Lisa, Brandi and Yolanda are not your real friends. They are both two-faced and especially Yolanda!!! Wait and see. Yolanda thinks she's better then all the girls and she wouldn't be anyone without David, go away! Brandi is just trash and she need to go to aa's with Kim. The only true friend you really have is Kyle.yes she is telling the truth about Yolanda and Brandi and Yolanda talk about you, and it's not nice . It will all come out and your gonna be really hurt and Kyle will get you through it. Hugs to ken and giggy.

You were protecting KIM's dignity by closing the bathroom door. For someone who has been before cameras her whole life you would think she would get what you were doing but as usual Kim gets Nothing. Why we do not know. She blew it up because she is mad at you for some reason and Looking for what is Not there. Dim bulb. Something fishy there. Keep your class always Lisa.

you're so damn pompous and self-applauding, it's become your pathology.  you ARE judgmental, unscrupulous, AND beyond hypocritical.   you try to contradict what we see and hear for ourselves, on the show, with this silly attempt at excusing your ugly actions and see-through strategy.  attacking Kim, then writing as tho you were gallantly trying to preserve her dignity?? whatever lady.  not buying what you're selling.  first you insult ALL of your cast mates, NOW you insult the viewers as well.

Really, Lisa! You always brush off Kim in an off-handed manner. Maybe not intentional but rudely done, nonetheless. I really would like for you to address your comment about animals on the tram. Who were you referencing, Joyce- the black women. You are so messy and your too old for this. Instead of being the example to follow your the model of how not to act. You brushed Kim's comment off because your intolerant of her, don't value her opinion and don't see her as a integral part of the show. Yes, Kim is quirky but it's her raw honesty that I love. You wanted Joyce to have problems with Kyle, so now you old gals are on a mission to take Joyce down using Brandi as your mouth piece. Shame on you and Yolanda!

I get it...sometimes we laugh during an uncomfortable moment.  I think you are hilarious, that Brit dry humour I appreciate.  I understand the chuckle during one of Brandi's drunken fits.  Kyle wants to be the STAR dahling and at the moment she is hoping that we feel sorry for her because her husband is being accussed of cheating.  Really?  I feel sorry for the homeless, disabled veterans (who by the way do not feel sorry for themselves).  Wah wah, poor Kyle everyone is picking on her.  A word of advice a la Regan - trust but verify.

Lisa, it's hard to fathom why you are laughing at Brandi's mean-spirited, drunken behavior.  The way she (and YOU) is treating Joyce is despicable.  I've always liked you and had a lot of respect for you, but this season, not so much.

Thank you for your sanity. I think only the sane of us can see it. It is a dim light in this facade of a reality show. I honestly don't know how you can stand it with all these nut heads running around. You're my favorite of ALL of the shows. Good luck in all that you do.

I respect your decision to look out for Brandy and take the bottle from her rather than to laugh with the crowd. That was something that you were genuinely doing to help her. Being true to yourself and a friend can never be wrong.

 

I do sense you get annoyed with Kim, and you kind of shlush her off at times. However, I'm not sure I wouldn't be the same way. She does do things that are annoying and/or not logical. It is what it is, because she won't change, but she is a good person. So just try to remember to have patience and be kind. (No judgment here, though.)

Lisa you are the one person still worth watching.  I can't believe the depths to which BRAVO has allowed, or encouraged this show to fall. 

Kim has fried her brain and is not fun to watch or listen to; Brandi is the worst kind of trash; Yolanda sometimes talks sense, but she is far too "superior" acting & doesn't know when to be quiet; Kyle is a mystery; Joyce spends too much time playing with that ridiculously too long hair; Carlton is too weird and I don't enjoy watching her.

Lisa, I don't know how you can stand to be on this show....I don't think you have any real friends on the show (and really, does anyone?)  It used to appear to be fun, but now, it has gone the way of every other RHO show,,,where everyone is fighting, no one can stand eachother - it just gets old, doesn't it?  You have a wonderful family, and some very successful businesses - do you really need to do this?

Who cares what and where Kim decides to pray. It's not for me but who am I to judge? The woman's been through a lot, let her do her. I'm glad she's sober, but for some reason I can't stand when she speaks... Sounds like she's still on something, her words come out fumbling. She sounds loopy. Anyhoo, I've always enjoyed you on this show. Brandi's a train wreck and karma is actually a bigger bitch than she is. Sorry for her pup pup but.......

Dearest Lisa you know that I have been a loyal and diehard fan of yours since season 1. It hurts me that Brandi has taken advantage of you and trashed what was a good friendship. You and Ken brought her into your world and your life and this is how she returns it. I for one am glad that you took the bottle from her. She being ridiculous. I feel badly for her that she has lost Chica forever. That's a hard thing to go through. No matter what the future brings. I will always be a fan of yours because you have been so kind to me on twitter as your wonderful husband has been kind to me on facebook. I know good people when I see them. You and your family are it. I hope that one day I next year if health permits that I make it out there to BH and come to Sur and Villa Blanca. It is a dream for me that I am bound to make happen. Much love and warm holiday season to you and yours. I hope that you see this.

Lisa, I sympathize with you. I believe the other ladies are insanely jealous of you, your popularity, and second show on Bravo. And unfortunately, all this is playing out on national tv. After seeing Kyle and Yolanda discuss the comments at dinner, I believe Kyle. Kyle is firm and resolute, while Yolanda avoids the issue. She opted not to blog this week, perhaps b/c she didn't want to address how silly she looked on national (international) television. You are still my favorite. I (and so many) appreciate your wit and good nature. GO Team Lisa!!

Lisa, you will never win with Kim and Kyle.  I looked at the whole show and it seems that since day one they are the shit disturbers.  AND the most whiny ones!!!  They cause alot of the bitchiness and go crying when people hit back.  

I LOVE Brandi, BUT that little kitty kat is drinking way too much and you are right to stick up for her.  She has kind of lost her way it seems....she has been hurt too often and then at the worst time(her first season) Kim and Kyle team up their bitchy selves.  Out of pure jealousy!  The double K's are double B's....they think they are entitled and always want to draw things back to themselves!!!

Hang in there, it seems you stay true always!

God love ya Lisa.You have got to be the most sane housewives in the history of housewives. I actually watched a program that was about reality celebs and the after effects. It was hosted by a man who catered to reality rejects who have emotional problems from it. It was jaw dropping time. Ambulance chasers no less. What a world what a WOLRD I SAID as I melted into a witches puddle on the floor. Anyway, even tho you are not Brandi's mother I felt your compassion as you tried to mentor her, Kyle and the saliva dribbling Kim. She has got to find a way to stay sober and being in a rehab does not help her kind. She needs the steps pure and simple and a sponsor, not a life coach. Still there is no gurantee it will help her. 1 alcoholic in 10 actually stays sober for life. But I digress, your goodness will not go unrewarded and I admire you forever. See you next week, and I love ya!

Please Lisa! You are full of it. It's clear that you were jealous of Kyle's popularity on past seasons. Your face shows it all just like when you were on DWTS and the first week you were in the bottom, lol, and not to mention the fake collapse. Oh my goodness dear! Now on your blog you are actually typing that you have given Kyle words of support in this Mauricio bs. Two face you are. If you did go through anything that Kyles' family is going through in the past months Kyle sure didn't kick you when you were down. Now you just happen to have a problem with Joyce because Kyle likes her. What will you bloody do when Brandi stabs your back? It's a matter of time before Brandi stabs you. You are trying to win the popularity contest and it's not working. By the way, I think Brandi meant that she wanted to know your strategy against Kyle not the bull in your blog! Cheers!

Lisa aren't you meant to express how you felt at that time. Clearly, you have now lost a friendship with brandi. But at that time you hadn't. So i feel like you are not writing from an honest place. I think you use big words to intimidate people. You of all people are one for "back me up" but not once did you do so. Disappointing..,

Lisa, You are the only one on that show that makes any sense.  Please don't let them chase you off  --  I knew that Kyle and Kim were out for you and although I dislike both of them, they were telling the truth about what Yolanda had said. I don't know why BRAVO won't play that part back for you to see.  Yolanda told Kim that you were not really her friend.  This only proves that you have to watch out for Yolanda as well as Brandi.  I'm not sure what Brandi's problem is except maybe you may have put her in check one time too many and now she's through with you too.  You don't have a "Bobby Fischer" way about your personality at all.  Unless Bravo is editing a whole lot, you simply speaks your mind like it is and believe me, I do that too and people doesn't like it when we do that.  Not sure what you think, but I think that Kim is still doing something too much.  She can barely keep her eyes open without a strain.  I'm not saying she's drinking again, but perhaps she might be.  I'm glad you closed the door while she was pulling her pants down or whatever she was doing.  Doesn't she know her ass from her elbow -- did stardom mess her up or was it the booze cuz she really is all screwed up.  I wish she and Kyle would leave the show - I'm sick of Kyle always wanting the cameras to be on her her her!!!  Sickening - I love your other show too but Jax needs to meet another women and let Stassi deal with it.  She's pushed him away to the point he looks like a little desperate puppy dog.  Merry X-mas to you and your family!  Love ya much!

I think you know by now that Kim is very sensitive and has gotten offended by your jokes about her many times in the past, so at this point you are either just absentmindedly inconsiderate or purposely picking at her.  I think your "character" has run its course-over it.

Brandi dared to show that she is independent. I see a lot of language in your blog that shows your superior, dominant attitude over Brandi and Kim! too. You tolerate Brandi as long as she toes your line. Not that I find her behavior tolerable, but she is a grown woman who can lie on the bed that she has made for herself. As for Kim, you completely dismiss her and put her down. Not very classy of you.

Lisa, you great, the only thing that the show can do to make it perfect is to let kim go. She makes a fool of herself. I know all the problems she has had I have been there done that. I'm embarrassed for her sometimes. There is nothing you can do to make her act more mature. I wish she would leave and spend more helping herself. she is a good person.

Kim is another wackadoodle. She is sober and Still makes no sense whatsoever. One can shut their eyes and say a quick prayer without making it so obvious and looking so weird. Pulling her pants down while are rolling and Lisa still has the sense to try and protect Kim and save her dignity only To have ?Kim over react Again and completely misinterpret intentions and blow it all out of proportions. Something not right here.

 @kristie737 I dont think lisa uses big words and  I dont find her to be intimidating at all.  She backed up Kyle numerous times and Kyle always has some excuse as to why Lisa backing her up isnt good enough.  Meanwhile you have the hypocritical Kyle doing nothing but trying to throw Lisa under the bus.  If I was Lisa I would wash my hands of Kyle.  Kyle is as biggest fake on the show.  What a backstabber.

 What is annoying is the way all the other girls except for Joyce and Carlton is out to get Lisa. Even Yolanda has quit talking about Lisa since she saw how it was backfiring.
