Lisa Vanderpump: I Regret Even Acknowledging the Subject
Lisa V. explains her comments about Yolanda's children.
Well hello to you all...
So this week, I ventured into the sex shop. That was an experience that should come with a warning--some of the the articles and pictures brought tears to my eyes. I have frustrations--not sexual ones lol--but frustrations with my husband as he proceeded to take this property for a new venture without consulting me. We work and play together, and at times it can be challenging.
So off we trot to Kyle's. I was surprised, to say the least, that Faye was there. I know they are close friends, but I am not so enamored by her. My last encounter with Faye Resnick had not been a productive one. She was present at our vowel renewal, and from my recollection she was assertive but
in a derogatory fashion, and I accused her of speaking on Kyle's behalf.
I am puzzled,mystified as to why Miss Resnick would be compliant in appearing on a reality show,when she had been the recipient of such a backlash in regard to her last appearance.
Her history and reputation have been contentious--of that I am aware. She had sullied the reputation of her friend in a polarizing book, but I had little knowledge of her ties to Kathryn and understood her sentiment to be calmer, less aggressive than my previous experiences. In regard to siding with Kathryn, the new girl as Kyle referred to her, was ridiculous. I barely became involved in the discussion, because I had zero knowledge of what had transpired between them. I understood Kathryn's sentiment when she stated that she hadn't read the book. Sometimes it is easier to ignore negativity as if it doesn't exist.
On the subject regarding Lyme disease, I can't stress this enough: I believe when we initiate conversation on a reality show,whether inadvertently or not, we open the doors for discussion. I have initiated sensitive subjects myself,with regard to my children, for one... Max's adoption, with the full understanding that as cameras were documenting this, it would be flung into a forum where many would speculate. It was a conscious choice, so people would gain a better understanding of our family dynamic.
I would never delve into the health history of somebody's children, but now as the subject was brought to the forefront by Yolanda, a week previously, without provocation, then I was asked questions by Kyle, I have no alternative but to speak my truth. My truth being over the years of interacting with all of the children there had never been any mention of illness.
I knew them to to thrive, flourish, but I state I had no reason to question their well being.
Mohamed had always said they were fine, but that is their prerogative as parents, whatever medical issues or information they choose to divulge. I obviously interpreted that as they were not infected by this insidious disease, and as it is not contagious, I understood them to be healthy. I love and adore all three of them, for sure.
I regret even acknowledging the subject, but we live and we learn.
Anyway, I bid you all a wonderful and productive week ahead...
As always ...Love Lisa.
