Lisa Vanderpump

Lisa VanderPump's standing in (and stand-up act) fails to diffuse the fight between Kyle and Camille

on Nov 10, 20100

Hello to each and every one of you. Firstly, a huge thank you for your incredible support last week. It was absolutely inspiring to feel the warmth that I received from the fans of RHOBH...and, coupled with that, our ratings have been fantastic!

Anyway, now let's get our teeth stuck into this week's episode. We open with a visit to the flower market. I go every week, and each time is as special as the last. I create huge arrangements in Villa Blanca and Sur, and it really is so appreciated by everybody who goes there. It is a passion of mine, and my ego won't let anybody else try to do it!

You can tell this show is reality when it captures emotional moments, like when Adrienne received the phone call telling her about her uncle’s passing. It was sad to see Adrienne suddenly disoriented, leaving, and ultimately staying behind from our trip. Also, I found it disheartening to see Camille and Kelsey with their children, and to realize the magnitude of what he has given up. Extraordinary.

So Camille had invited us all to New York. For me to go on a trip across the country, when I have so many demands here with family and business, I want to be assured to have a fantastic time. So I tried to encourage some sort of communication between Kyle and Camille before we left--to no avail. When we arrived, I witnessed the exchange between them, and felt relieved that they'd embraced, and we were moving forward...phew! Little did I know of what was about to erupt. We first went up to Taylor’s suite, and the two of them had a few minutes alone. (That was when you caught me listening at the door.) As I heard no raised voices, I was certain that we could now relax and enjoy the weekend...

I asked Kyle if they'd cleared it up without wanting details, and she assured me all was well. So I was really taken aback when it all kicked off downstairs in the restaurant. Something happened between us leaving the suite and us reconvening in the bar. And I do manage to get to the bottom of that in a later episode!

Kyle has always been indignant that what she said didn't tally with Camille's side of the story. I didn't witness the exchange between the two of them, but I was certain that Kyle intended no malice whatsoever, and I tried to explain that to Camille when we went shopping. As you have probably gathered by now, I am extremely close to Kyle and knew that the reason behind her anger was the fact that she was defending her character against Camille’s accusations of her lying!

There was absolutely no way either of them would capitulate, and so basically all hell broke loose, and ended up ruining the whole weekend. It was emotional and difficult to be in the middle of. The calmer Camille became, the more it provoked Kyle.

I sat there at the table feeling absolutely helpless as to what to do. We leave it there in the middle of this dispute, and you will have to see next week what transpires. But rest assured the weekend was no picnic, that's for sure. I always try to find the humor in situations, but this time that would've been a fruitless task.

I hope to see you next week, for the conclusion!

Love always, Lisa.

Lisa you are the best housewife yet. I bet in Camille's mind Mauricio works for her family and was upset that Kyle stood her ground, as she is usually use to her employees not having a backbone. I loved, loved, loved you Chanel coat at the airport and you looked fab at the premier.

FanFare56,

the Count De Lesepps is Italian and Lisa's husband is British...I doubt they're related in any measurable way.

Lisa, I watched you again this morning on VOD because the best way to meet a new day is with a laugh. You are adorable, classy and funnier than one would think by looking at you. The things you say to the camera make me laugh harder each time I see them....your comment about Taylor and the cotton candy and pin the tail on the donkey are the ones that pop to mind immediately. I tried to have a normal 5 year old's birthday party 15 years ago and couldn't even find a pin the tail on the donkey!!! I don't know what has happened to parents giving children such non-childlike parties...it's a competition of adult consumption. As much as you make me laugh, you can touch my heart and bring tears to my eyes. The love you have for your children is what motherhood should be and it's reflected in the love we see them returning to you. In a world of bad marriages, you have succeeded where so many fail and it's nice to see the two of you interacting....it seems he absolutely adores AND appreciates you. You're beautiful and a joy to watch. Thank you.

What a breath of fresh air you are. You seem so down to earth and truly a wonderful, kind person. Its really nice and unusual to see. You seem like the kind of person who can sit down and be friends with anyone, not just the wealthy girlfriends. What a classy lady you are. And by the way I love you little dog. He is so cute.

I have to tell you Lisa you are by far my favorite housewife, and I have been a loyal watcher of all of them. You carry yourself with class, and yet you are sweet. I admire your work ethic and commitment to family.

love u lisa.. u kyle and adrienne.. the other 3 are abit duhh, duhh wit money all be it.. (cept kim what does she actually do for money?) but u 3 r fab so down to earth and fabulous. i think camille overreacted to the situation wit kyle.. i mean accusing her of interrogation for simply asking 'will ur husband be joining the vacation?' Camille was obviously aware of some lack of commitment from kelsey (which i sympathise with) and got on the defensive and then everything from there blew out of proportion.. ur the best tho luv ye xxxxx

Lisa, I think that your great! I also think that Kyle would never say anything like that, although I have heard Camile say stuff like that all the time. I hope that you do find out what happened in between. Makes me wonder what was said between Taylor and Camile while everyone went to brush up, as if it almost as if Camile "knew" that someone was on her side. Please find out for us what happened. It wasn't Camile's calmness that bothered Kyle I think it was that the accusations just kept flying. Camile is a great manipulator, sitting there throwing jab after jab and then when the person snaps, sits back and says, "look at you"!

Classy all the way my darling. I love that you seem so down to earth and approachable. You always look stunning in your various shades of pink. I tune in to see you bring the nonsense back to earth. Spotted dog show in the countryside, of course. I loved that.

Lisa, you are very sophisticated and these girls need you as a postive role model. I love your style as well as your personality. I can't imagine how you can deal with the negative drama of Camille?

So, nice to see someone so down to earth and with a wicked sense of humor!! Love it, you and Kyle are my favorites! But your right this was no joke, and I do believe that Camille does need some therapy like Kyle suggested! She is way too out there!

Hi Lisa! I've watched all the different versions of housewives and all of the many seasons, and I have to say how nice it is to watch A TRUE LADY! You are an inspiration to us all! Also, where did you get that tailored stripped button down blouse you were wearing the morning you went to the florist? I want one!

Lisa, I felt your pain......

As hard as you tried to diffuse the situation and be the catalyst for peace, it was to no avail. I can appreciate you encouraging Kyle to approach Camille and get the issues out on the table like real women and I know it was a blow to everyone at that table when Camille attacked Kyle AGAIN about what was said. Your wisdom, boldness, wit and guidance are much needed with this group.

THANK GOD there is a voice of reason on this show!!!!! Well actually it would be you and Adrienne, the two sensible, level headed, calm, intelligent and mature women. Greatly respect you, and think you add a lot of dignity, class and surprising down to earth quality to the show. You have excellent taste and you are a true lady. Thanks for keeping it real!

Lisa, I really wish all could act as you. However some are just not sophisticated. And I do not feel it to be important to always mention money especially in todays society where so many are hurting. I adore the way you do not. It makes watching the show easier. The rest needs lessons on being lady lady like. I feel it's so ugly to threaten to beat up or hurt another.

My partner and I find you irreverent and thoughtful...We'll be watching because we think you're fabulous. P.S. We like Kyle in her own rite, but we like her more now knowing you two are friends.

Lisa, you're definitely my favorite. You seem to relate to normality better than to pretentiousness. You're cool and you don't come off as superficial at all even with the wealth that you have. I love when you made a comment regarding Taylor's daughter birthday party "What ever happen to pin the tail on the donkey?"!! Funny stuff!

Jiggy is not "insecure" like some of his castemates! He carries himself well, hold his head high and exudes tons of cool, Zen-like self confidence.

Jiggy = Master of Universe

(Camille could take a tip or two from The Jig!)

Lisa, i absolutely love you.

You are so funny and adorable. You don't take life too seriously and to see you with your children was priceless. It wasn't fake or phony. You could see the genuine love and compassion that you have for mothering and loving your children. I love your relationship with Max and you can tell that he looks to you for guidance and approval. Just a lovely, lovely relationship between mother and son.

Dear Lisa,

You represent elegance and I admire the love you have for your children. I was thinking about the show the othe day and a great idea occurred to me...Have the Housewives put together a sweepstakes in which you give away a Hermes Birkin handbag (or a few) to some lucky viewers. It would give us a taste of the exquisite and luxurious life you ladies lead.

Congratulations on a fabulous show.

Lisa, You are so much fun and so funny! I enjoy your little asides about the other ladies. You're also the wonderful, supportive friend that we all wish we had. One small question: is your husband related to LuAnn's ex, Count Cad? He resembles the Count quite a bit.

Hi Lisa,

I love the show and I enjoy all of the Bev Hills housewives. But I have to say that you are my favorite. You add such an elegant and refined element to the show. Your love and concern for your family and your friends make you the definition of class. You are not only gorgeous on the outside, you are as beautiful on the inside. Much love to you and your family.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas.

John
