Lisa Talks Tabloids

Lisa explains why she brought up the cheating rumors to Kyle.

Hello to you all and welcome to our fourth season of RHOBH. It has been an eventful year and a tumultuous season!

We open with the gorgeous Gigi posing for a fashion shoot for Beverly Hills Lifestyle, the magazine that most of you are now familiar with as I have been a contributor and writer with for years. They always create the most exquisite fashion shoots, and Gigi was perfection. I have seen her mature over the years since I am close to Mohamed, and I revel in her success. She is a kind, sweet, beautiful creature.

As I am sure most of you knew, I participated in Dancing With the Stars last season. It was an honor to be asked and a daunting task, that's for sure. I was lucky enough to find my self closely ensconced and physically entwined with one of most beautiful men I have ever laid my eyes on -- Gleb Savchenko. Gleb is a kind and patient man that had the challenge of transforming me into a dancer. It was a struggle, just from the amount of hours you had to commit to while squeezing life's normal demands. And that is what I explained to Kyle. I felt I was doing many things and none of them very well, but above all I was having an amazing experience and was well aware that it would be short and sweet!

Kyle had asked me to cater an event for her. It isn't something we often do -- to take our chef away from the restaurant. Transporting the food and staff is just too complicated to ever be worthwhile. While I am there, Kyle brings up the fact that there have been stories created about her being pregnant. I also mentioned that I had seen the articles about Mauricio cheating. I would prefer face-to-face to acknowledge them, and then in the same breath ridicule the constant nonsense that is often in these tabloids.

When we enter this domain, this is the tax we pay. I have endured countless articles and malicious gossip. The previous week I had appeared on the very same magazine cover stating that they had discovered a sex tape!!! As if!!! The only way I have of dealing with and enduring these hurtful, slanderous headlines is to give them as much credence as they deserve -- zero -- and also reminding myself that the very same paper will be lining the bottom of a parrot's cage tomorrow. We cannot invest emotionally, otherwise it will eat you alive.

I had been at an event a couple of days prior and publicly denounced the validity of these rumors regarding Mauricio on the red carpet. I was quoted using the terminology "utter bullshit." I had chosen my words carefully as I responded to the inquiring minds, because I was well aware that my reply would be documented everywhere and it was my duty as a friend to defend them. There was still the issue of Yolanda that was unresolved. I was adamant that Yolanda would never say derogatory things about me. I remained steadfast in my resolve to defend her, however I explained to Kyle that if I was prepared to ignore it, why couldn't she? Kyle felt it was a matter of principle that she knew Yolanda was guilty, she was a liar, and was hurt that I wouldn't believe her. Hindsight is twenty twenty. I was warned and chose to ignore it, this is how the story begins...

At the party, we were introduced to the two new girls, Joyce and Carlton. Carlton seemed to take offense at the fact that Kyle was poking fun at me, highlighting the supposed naked scene. She felt it was disparaging, belittling to people she had only just met, when I wasn't there to defend myself. When I witnessed it, I understood her sentiment, but as I have stated previously, the only way for me to navigate this rocky terrain is with humor when it comes to these ridiculous tabloids. If Kyle wanted to poke fun and draw attention to something that some might find embarrassing, I have no problem with it whatsoever, but I liked the fact that this quirky Brit was voicing an opinion. So thank you for watching! Until next week!

Love Always,

Lisa

Lisa R.: Kyle Didn't Create This Drama

Lisa R. thinks there are two ladies who aren't taking responsibility for their actions.

I have to start the week off by giving a shout out to all of you. During last week’s episode and throughout the week, your tweets have been pouring in, and you guys really make me laugh. Yes, as a matter of fact I DID want to dive-roll head first out of that car ride with Kim onto the freeway and run. Run Forrest, run! All of your support and understanding means everything!

So, we pick up right where we left off, but before we do, I’d like to note that Kyle wasn’t the one to create any of this drama. It was Kim that chose to walk back in the house after Brandi had escorted her outside and told her NOT to go back in. There was a lot of alcohol and God knows what other drugs influencing a lot of the behaviors, so no matter what, the outcome wasn’t going to be a good one. Like a Dr. Phil quote I used on Twitter last week, “When you choose the behavior, you choose the consequence.” While I have compassion and empathy for these women and what I see playing out in front of me, there seems to be a lot of blame that both Kim and Brandi are trying to place on Kyle, and in my opinion they aren’t accepting the consequences from their behavior.

Now that some time has passed and I have really had some time to digest the situation, I myself have some questions just like all of you. Why did Kim go to Eileen’s poker night if she was sick with pneumonia and bronchitis? I don’t doubt that major illnesses like these made her feel terrible. So, then why go in the first place and then exacerbate these illnesses by smoking cigars all evening? I’m quite certain that had I been as ill as she was, I would have been in my bed pickling myself in oil of oregano and overdosing on vitamin C and echinacea. But again, as I didn’t know where she was in her sobriety, I also didn’t know where she was in her illnesses.

To me, there seems to be a lot of pain being masked by alcohol.

As far as Brandi goes, my comments are coming from a place of experience and concern. I’ve been, like I know many many of you have also, a part of lives that have been affected by addiction. And to echo Yolanda’s sentiments, I have a hard time wrapping my brain around the idea of grown women, mothers in particular,
behaving this way. To me, there seems to be a lot of pain being masked by alcohol. Granted, I don’t know what goes on in Brandi’s life outside of this. I only know what I observe in this environment.

I’m just so happy that the darn Stella & Dot party was successful. Hallelujah! Holly Robinson Peete had done a similar party that had an amazing turnout, and I was beyond thrilled to host my own. The Noreen Fraser Foundation’s mission, "to find a way to live with cancer and not die from it" is very close to my heart. Both my mother and sister are recent breast cancer survivors with double masectomies, so it was very important to me that the party be a successful one. It meant so much to me that everyone, with the exception of Kim being in the hospital, showed up despite what had recently gone down. By the grace of God, everyone kept their composure, bought a ton of jewelry, and appeared to have a good time. Big thanks to Stella & Dot for helping to raise so much money and to Gourmet 47 and Hourie for catering the amazing food.

Giant kudos to Eileen for speaking her mind with Brandi at my house. She always knows how to remain classy and sophisticated even in the most uncomfortable of situations. I admire her deeply for that.

Lisa V.’s impeccable brood continues to grow as we see her add Pumpy to the family. What a gorgeous and incredibly lucky dog she is to take on the Vanderpump name. If only she truly knew what a lucky bitch she is!

Next week is the Gay Mixer and yes, I finally understand that I shouldn’t come naked. Again, I ask my dear gay friends forgiveness for not understanding what Kyle meant. Sometimes it just takes me a minute to catch these innuendos. Oy. Be sure to keep your seatbelts safely fastened as we are still experiencing turbulence!

Until next week….

Xo, LR
