Lisa Vanderpump

Lisa explains how this is the moment that her feelings about Brandi and Yolanda started to change.

on Dec 9, 20130

Oh dear! That is all I want to say really! Could we just leave it at that? How can I even begin to analyze or summarize this complicated web we are weaving?

We start with the degrading scene, talking about the various sexual antics these women get up to. I am not particularly interested in the two finger maneuver that will be explained in her book. After 31 years of marriage I probably have a few maneuvers of my own I could share.

It's hard to understand this constant need to shock. Her admission of indulging in cocaine, nudity, of being choked? Calling yourself a whore? What message does that send?

One must remember that what we see will forever be documented. Provocative statements. Like you, I am witnessing for the first time, as obviously we have no knowledge of what has been shot. But with all that I have seen since, being called a bully by paparazzi in front of my children would rate pretty low on the totem pole.

Ohhhh Lisa.  Please wake up.  Kyle is certainly not perfect and has done many silly things over the time, but one thing she is not is a liar.  It is OBVIOUS to the viewers that Yolanda did actually speak badly of you and then tried to lie about it because she knew there was no camera evidence.  You KNOW Kyle, you may not LIKE everything about her but you actually believed she LIED about that?  Come on Lisa!

So glad you are seeing through those two fakes! Knew since the previous season that they were not trustworthy

I was actually appalled by Brandi's behavior in this episode. Nobody deserves to be treated the way Brandi treated Joyce here. I liked Brandi and felt sympathy for her in previous seasons. However, now I see that she brings drama upon herself. Joyce was a lovely host. She is a beautiful, intelligent woman and calling her a fat big was uncalled for. Yolanda also disgusted me because she allowed Brandi to act like that towards Joyce. Even if you don't like someone you don't act like that. Brandi and Yolanda both need to grow up and learn how to handle a situation like an adult. Brandi also needs to learn that if she doesn't want to be involved in drama she shouldn't create it. I also felt horrible for Kyle in this episode. She was hurting and Yolanda just kept attacking her.

i just got to throw this out there...maybe i was in an alternate universe; but i remember seeing the scene where yolanda whispers to kyle that" lisa is being a phony acting like she cares about kim."  when kim was in the bathroom.  now, did bravo forget they showed that scene? why are all the players acting like that scene wasn't shown??  are they going to reveal that scene at a later date for dramatic confrontation???  or am i insane????

Lisa,

Listen to your husband. He has great common sense. Move away from Brandi who is a drunk and Yolanda who's head is soooooo big she needs to have her doors widen. Reestablish your friendship with Kyle.

Lisa, I have respect for you, and I am sorry you chose to hen over Brandi, who curses, drinks, and instigates hateful rhetoric. You are sensible, you and your family. I hope you will resolve your inner conflicts with Kyle. She is the real deal, good hearted, it shows through the show. She and Kim are real, as are you when you are with them. you all have been rude to Kyle, and it would hurt to be the kind person, I know that you are.

I always sort of thought you were the smart one out of the bunch but when you were laughing over drunk Brandy's comments at Joyce over the dinner  - it made you look rather pathetic. Laughing over disrespectful and mean comments is no way to help a situation. I am all for being loud silly and outspoken but not when it is hurtful to someone.

I have to say that this season is getting rather hard to watch. I've never understood why people take offence to you. You can be dismissive but that's because you don't want things to escalate or to tolerate any BS. That's understandable. Brandi is a mess and is making a complete idiot of herself on TV which is sad considering she has children. I liked her up until this season - watching her slur through sentences with glazed eyes while Yolanda played her like a puppet was horrible. I had to cover my eyes. You're better off without those two as friends. I feel that people who constantly have to tell you their good points probably don't have any, like Yolanda. Honestly, I have no idea why you continue to subject yourself to this show. I'm pretty much done watching RHOBH because other than you, and maybe Carlton - this is such an unlikeable group of women.

Lisa, I know your sick of the whole Kyle & Yolanda she said, she said situation, but if you would of @ least heard Kim & Kyle out about what really happened in Europe maybe you would have seen that Yolanda wasn't such a great friend a bit sooner. I know you weren't happy w/Kyle @ the time, but you've known her for sometime now & deep down inside do you really believe she's a liar? In my opinion I believe Yolanda did talk poorly about you. Please, I can't even start on Brandi, she is beyond help @ this point (insert eye roll here). I'm just glad you've been enlighten by what's really underneath that pretty little package of crazy!!  I hope you & Kyle can work things out this season...

Give me a break. You loved all the nasty comments Brandy and Yolanda were making. You were even laughing. And Why all of a sudden are Brandy's rude comments and nasty jokes no longer ok? Last season you thought they were funny and ok. Oh so now that you 2 aren't friends it's no longer ok? Who are you fooling? You, Brandy, Yolanda, and Carlton are the definition of entitled mean girls. Oh and Yolanda is lying, she said those mean things about you but you would rather try to keep having Kyle look bad than admit it. So sad.......

Girl don't be stupid , Kyle threw it all has had her moments of slipping up like you too but in the end she has been the most loyal and Kim. Brandi is a hot mess and Yolanda is well Yolanda enough said. Hopefully you guys can re connect.

Although I can appreciate your comments regarding the passing of the great Nelson Mandela and Brandi's remarks about Joyce not wanting to get in the. Pool (let's face it,she most likely didn't want to mess up her hair and or fresh make up), it is my understanding that filming was done well before his passing,so to use that as a reference to show how insensitive Brandi's remarks were an insult to his passing in your blog, the timeline sees to be wrong. I could be wrong..I still think you are as funny as all heck and am saddled by the direction of meanness that seems to be coming your way

I'm so happy you FINALLY are seeing how mean Yolanda and Brandi can be and were at the dinner. Just nasty behavior on their part. Even if ya'll are friends, I would like to think you would still disagree with their behavior bc it was so rude and gross.

Stay classy, Lisa. The other "women" are high maintainance, needy, and insecure. They can't handle honesty, integrity, and a little reality. Thank god you are on the show-you're the only one that keeps me watching. The others are such a bore....LAMEWIVES

You were rude to Kim... because she has seen your true colors from day one... and she was/is right about you.

I'm glad the tides are going to turn soon. You were always one of my favorites, and I felt it lowered your character a bit to be associating with that "gang mentality." Kyle isn't perfect, and I certainly think they can be young when they interact - throwing popcorn, giggling, etc. But Kyle has a good heart, and her loyalty is to you ultimately no matter what sins have transpired between the two of you. She stayed calm and tried to bury the hatchet during dinner, but her every move was attacked. 

 

I don't think Joyce was calling Brandy a bully. She was saying she has a sensitivity about her name b/c of a prior experience in high school. But just like the rest of the dinner, one word is used as an opportunity to berate someone.

 

I watch all of the RH seasons, and that dinner had my stomach turning almost more than any other seen I've ever seen. It was cruelty masked behind the guise of working things out. So disappointing to see in a group of women of that caliber!

Yolanda is ridiculously involved in the material world, dangerously enabling Brandi, for some kind of vacuous agenda.  Brandi is very ill, and it is awful to see no one on the show, stepping up to go on record, saying she needs help, right now.  Hardly role models here, as of course, everyone knows.

Thank Goodness!!!  When you told Brandi to stop last night , that was so needed!  Good for you for having the courage to speak up.  Brandi's true self is emerging and she is a bully and a trainwreck.  Yolanda is sinking to Brandi's level which is really sad.  Thank goodness you realize this, get away from it!

Quite frankly Lisa, I was very surprised at your allegiance to Brandi last season. You are the only one of the group to have class and elegance. I'm not sure about the new ladies yet, the season is still young. I can't understand how a woman of your substance can sit at a table and listen to the stupidity that goes on around you. I totally agree about the way the "ladies" were haranging Joyce about going in the pool. It was so painful to watch. The way Yolanda was blathering about leading her party and Joyce should be leading by going in the pool made no sense whatsoever. I am starting to wonder about her myself. Her party should be interesting. I bet you all can't wait to gather around the piano.

Let me tell you, you cannot fool anybody even if you work hard for it. I watched the last episode and boy! you enjoyed every single crap that Brandi and Yolanda  said about Joyce at the pool and dinner. You want to present yourself like English- high society- lady but you will be perfect to work just in the National Enquirer.

Thank God, Lisa . . . I cannot tell you how much better I feel to know you have finally seen the light.  You were always one of my favorites, but I was beginning to lose you over your alliance with Brandi and Yolanda.  Yolanda DID say those things about you . . . I'm sure she regrets being called out about it, but she asked for it . . . and once it came out she did not want to admit it, so she lied.  Kyle is grounded, level-headed, funny, beautiful, and has so much more class than most of these women.  Same goes for you . . . but stay away from the dark side.

Lisa,

 

Frankly, there is a meanness in your behavior this year that is disheartening. Not only did you not check Brandi's behavior, you encouraged it by laughing at some of the cruel things she said to Joyce. And as annoying as Kim can be, you've been pretty condescending towards her this season. I prefer the side of you that we see when you are with your family, the side that is warm and funny; the side that comes out when you're with Brandi is not someone I would want to know. Maybe it is time to leave the toxic environment of the Housewives.

Lisa, disappointment is not the word but rather disgusted. You and Yolanda are too old to act as childish as you do. I find it amazing how now you can see the error of your ways (and the rest of your click) now that you and Brandi are no longer friends. But you seemed to think it was very funny at the time. I think you knew it was wrong at the time but you were delighted to have a mouth piece to do your dirty work (Brandi). If I was Joyce, Kim, or especially Kyle, who was definitely being a friend to you, i would accept your apology but in no way consider you a friend. Your behavior and attitude is appalling! You are too old for that kind of nonsense. Grow up!!!

I have to admit I was on here to tell you how much I miss the Lisa from previous seasons.  You blog was just what I was hoping for.  I have missed you!  When you became so close to Brandi, you changed.  Welcome back to the sane side of the street!

Lisa, you were the only one who couldn't see through Brandi. She wants your kind of money (now that her ex-husband is rolling in some dough), she wants your house, she wants to not HAVE TO work.

 

She thinks that being the blonde girl, she should be the most popular, but you are the most beautiful (you and Kyle).

Look Lisa, Brandi is not married and is not wealthy (like you).  That being said, I think most people understand that she is using her wit and shocking take on life to make a living for herself and her children. Brandi did not have a great guy like Ken and she is not as "tough" as you.  I really like you, but you seem to see things in black and white and ultimately, are the quintessential business woman. Develop your spirit...if you have one aside from yourself and your family.

 @tribeca-alex I do believe they showed that scene in last seasons reunion!...and right after they showed Yo lying, Lisa said she did not believe Kyle...Maybe these girls don't watch the reunions, they can be ugly!!

 @tribeca-alex You are not insane.  I remember Yolanda saying that Lisa didn't give a sh*t about Kim too.  Seems like nobody really caught it or paid too much attention to it at the time.  I was like, WTF?  I remember it even though that scene has since then been tampered with (edited).  Or I could be insane too.  If so, I'm glad to be in such observant company!

 @KJPR Very well said!  I, for one, am sick and tired of Yolanda acting like she knows all about everything, no matter what it is!  Also tired of hearing about her constant health issues.  She's a pot stirrer.

 @SnoozySue

 I certainly agree with everything you said.  I constantly feel Yoyo is putting everyone down by her attitude that if they aren't in her shoes, they are somehow less than her.  Get real.  Being married to an accomplished musician should be something you should be proud of, but you shouldn't look down on others.  By way, your little hearts on the place cards at the dinner you threw was childish and extremely bad taste.  Why were the others invited?  To be subjected to your childish and cruel behavior because you.  Very expected that Brandi would say that it was an honest mistake and that you should be forgiven.  If it had been Joyce or someone else not in the Brandi gang that had done this, Brandi, Yolanda and Carlton would be screaming about it.

kritteracres@aol.com
kritteracres@aol.com

 @Allen12 Allen yes!  Yolanda absolutely DID say those things about Lisa and now is making Kyle out to be the bad one.  I like Kyle also.  She has so much more on the ball than that drunken Brandi.  I don't care for Carlton either...she's always looking for something to feel slighted over.

 I don't think they were making fun of Kim "PRAYING" but the fact that she was kneeling in front of a trash can was outrageous. Kim is so Fake, it's very hard to believe she is ever sincere, she is always contradicting her self & terribly self serving for the cameras.

 Yes, they are the most beautiful.  Being blond, or old looking like Carlton, or stuck-up like Yolanda does NOT make you the prettiest.  Pretty is also inside, and those last three are certainly in no danger of being thought of pretty inside!

 @Spinner1  @fireplacer Got to agree with spinner.  KIm just has no life - which, btw, is FINE, there is NOTHING wrong with having a nice, peaceful, boring, finally sober life.  But these random dog scenes are not even enough about the cute dog - they are Bravo's unsuccessful way of trying to give poor Kim a storyline cause she hasn't one.  and what the HECK was that race track scene for??!!.  Utterly random, then boring and pointless on top of it.  Can we not find some middleground between Kim's uneventlful current life phase and crazy, tacky, ridiculous, entitled, hires-her-gfs-as-household help, self-centered Carlton?  O Bravo, you can do better than this.  Is Andy Cohen still there?!!?  Or what?

 @kritteracres@aol.com  @Allen12

 @kritteracres@aol.com  @Allen12 Right on, kritteracres, love your handle, by the way.  Another commenter dubbed Brandi "the female Cedric" . . . I thought that was perfect . . . but looks like Lisa may be getting a little wiser . . . I hope so.  I have tried to like Yolanda and, at times, I have . . . but the more I see and hear from her, the less I do . . . she needs to practice her own byline, "If you want to be my friend, act like one".
