Carlton is Not Lisa's Puppet

Carlton rolls her eyes at Brandi’s accusations that Lisa manipulates her or anyone else.

By Carlton Gebbia

Beverly Hills Centennial event was also our final party and another exhausting affair. When we arrived the Beverly Hilton Hotel, it looked amazing. Surprisingly although outside it wasn't even cold, I knew chill fronts would no doubt be making their appearance.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Peacock and the Bravo App.

I was pretty sure tonight was going to be difficult for Lisa since this was the first time she was seeing everyone together since Puerto Rico. And here we go again -- Kyle demanding that never ending apology from Lisa. When will it bloody end, seriously where is her perception of reality? Blaming Lisa for Puerto Rico, getting ugly, saying that it was in her hands was very unfair. Let's be honest Kyle could have stepped in at anytime and stopped the asinine madness, but no, she sat back gleefully quiet and enjoyed her stirrings. Not a friend.

I do at the very least hope that Lisa and Yolanda make peace. They are both so strong and self assured and successful women. They have always been so kind and supportive of me and sometimes it's a little hard to find myself adoring both and knowing they are having a rough spot with each other presently. As I've said before, these women have a history together, but my experiences with them personally determine how I feel about them.

With regards to Ken and Yolanda, unfortunately because he was already riled up from Puerto Rico's unpleasant fiasco and knowing how devastated Lisa was feeling, the minute he felt it was about to happen again he stepped in not truly seeing this was not the same situation. Yes, it got blown way out of proportion and unfortunately Ken calling Yolanda stupid was bad judgement. It was a rough night.


As far as Brandi goes, of course I'm going to roll my eyes. If I was Lisa I would have left, too. Why would one stay just to be beaten up verbally and be made to feel completely isolated from women who you thought were your friends. Saying I couldn't have handled Puerto Rico. Really? I know Brandi knows me better than that now, since this last year we have gotten to know one another pretty well. Then this analogy comes that Lisa is some sort of hypnotic puppet master and her and Kyle were her puppets, and now I'm one of them. Oh, come on. First off, had I been there in Puerto Rico I most certainly would have handled it and I wouldn't have sat there purposely quiet like Kyle did while Lisa dealt with an onslaught of issues. And then Brandi saying Lisa reminded me of what I remember about certain events or that she's in my ear. I didn't see the tabloid that Brandi had in her home and I certainly didn't hear Lisa say take it. I'm sure it would have been a conversation piece on our ride down to Palm Desert. I don't know what else to say about this tabloid saga. But please let this poor bloody tabloid die in peace. Let it stay buried already, no more exhuming!


Yes, Lisa of course called me when all of this went down, but that's called being a friend not an ally. Most people that know me, know I'm pretty opinionated and outspoken and not swayed by others.

I honestly don't understand what has happened between Lisa and Brandi for it to have become so hostile. It's confusing to say the least, but I'm sure there is more to this than we understand. They obviously once had a great friendship, but it's very sad when it goes so wrong on so many levels. I don't know if either of them can recover from this sadly.

Kyle's performance with Lisa it was a little uncomfortable to watch. It does seem like Kyle is a tad bit 'single white female' obsessed with Lisa. Im just saying. I do think there should have been a violin quartet playing softly in the background.

Ah, the sport of motorboating!. . .The first time I've actually seen Kyle genuinely let her hair down. Good for her.

Unfortunately you didn't get to see but I also gave that necklace back to Kyle, cleansed and all. A few words were exchanged as I recall. So no loose ends there. Yay.

So now this part of the journey has come to an end and onto the Reunion. Until next week, have a very blessed week filled with love and peace.
