Read Lisa's expanded blog after the jump.
Kudos to you Lisa, Once again laughing all the way to the bank !! you have managed to have a group of loser- misfits, with no morals, scruples, respect, honesty of class work for you. But , you did manage to group together a bunch of immature drama queens and punk-ass little boys to do your show and this is genius. They are so pathetic and ridiculous I just keep watching the comedic side of this dysfunctional gaggle of idiots. You go girl !! the sad part is they are human beings and are in desperate need of some tough love and parenting, but look where they come from plastic ass Beverly Hills . Nothing is important out there except what is on the outside. Fake boobs, nice cars and extensions that have affected their brains. Its really sad that this is the future of our country. Really a freakin scary thought !! but I love you so keep on making that money and oh yeah I loved you on those Hero doggie awards. Say hi to your cute little puppy too !!
LIsa Lisa Lisa, You're getting too close to your employees! Not good. I know you feel parental to them but hey, its not really a good idea. Eventually boundaries will disappear.
I have managed young girls for years! I love them and all of their drama, It gives me an opportunity to help mold them into the young ladies they are today! Some have worked for me since they were 16, and now in their 30's. It takes a special heart to be able to listen to their tantrums and respond in a manner that works for everyone involved!.................BUTTTTT>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>................. I have not had the privilege of having cameras catch every word said out of my ear shot. Watching that, broke my business heart...... I can take screw ups...but not just down right disrespect. WOW!!! I can name 100 girls that would just die to work under your guiding hands of business savvy success......... Wow, just wow! I commend you on looking the other way. Its obvious she was hurting because she was cheated on. She felt powerless and the only sense of control she had in her life to restore that power was her job.
No Lisa, you should have fired all of them connected with this disgusting behavior and I and personally disappointed in you. Figure it out!!!!!!!
I,m kind of disappointed in you. These girls are not that young, but they could use some guidance....how about telling them to stop sleeping around and stop the drinking etc. I see no future for any of these girls or the men that live with. And yet it seems you encourage a friendship between them and your daughter?
Talking so crudely about your staff. The disgusting comment about the young ladie's "package" and how many have been in it. Really! Grow up and deal with your staff like a professional and leave comments about their personal life out of the equation. Money and power certainly hasn't bought you ANY class whatsoever!
Your being on both of these shows is sooooo confusing to me. Your my all time favorite housewife, I love your sense of humor (I saw nothing wrong with the comment you made with Kyle's daughter in the room and I think Kyle deserves every dig you give her), I think your a class act and love Ken, but when I see how you let these idiots treat you and act while on your time/dime it is totally opposite and makes me loose respect for you.
I LOVE you Lisa. I really do, but:
"Stassi should take heed and remind herself as we venture forward who has been loyal to her in the past."
I think you should remind yourself of that line. Brandi was your loyal friend, not Scheena. You should have remained loyal to Brandi and kept your relationship with Scheena strictly professional. She can be Pandora's (annoying) friend. She does not need to be yours.
Lisa you are so wrong to get in your staff personal business! It makes you look so childish and immature. You wouldn't let them get into yours so stay out of theirs. When in the world did Pandora and Sheana become best friends? Was Pandora best friends with her when Sheana was running with Brandi's husband? I'm really confuse with you, Pandora and Sheana being one big happy close group. Sheana uses you on the other staff and that's not right and I can't understand why you let her. You have to know. I all ways like you and in this situation I don't get you at all.
I now know why Kristen has a problem with you and the others are n ot happy. Please open your eyes and see how you are being used by Sheana and how she treats the staff.
Not letting the others know that you got Sheana a dress was totally nonsense. You did it on camera so of course the others would find out about it. Lisa wake up girl!!
Ms.Vanderpump aka mistress,
I think you handled the first episode like another day at the office. I don’t understand why, especially on Twitter, the incessant banter of how you are said to have been apathetic about their feelings. It’s business. Before anything, especially in the arena of a restaurant, you take your business seriously and don’t have time for bs. I, too, commend Pandora and Jason for leaving right on time. I think too many insinuated Jason’s, “we’re too good for this,” statement with money. I believe you taught Pandy well and that it was her character and conduct that shouldn’t be synonymous with late night altercations that later ensued at the club. Jason had taken the initiative to divert this confrontation appropriately. I have a lot of empathy for Scheana and the volatile depravity Stassi seems to always be immersed in. But I have to remember they are all young and I suppose trial and error is something they are going to have to understand and learn from. Thank you for keeping us in tune. I look forward to the opening of PUMP!

It's "rein in", not "reign in". Think of the leather straps that are used to guide a horse. Pip pip, Lisa!
Lisa, You are a passive aggressive mess. Your snide remarks to Kyle and comments about her marriage, right in front of her child, were clear indications that you have no class. I have many British friends with wickedly great senses of humor. That's not what you're doing, Dear. You're just an "older" woman trying to remain relevant, while all the while feeling your grip on your popularity and importance slip away. You pedal those kids, your employees, in front of the camera like a seasoned stage mother. You could probably get better help recruiting at Denny's, but they wouldn't be so darn pretty, would they?
Leave Kyle alone. If you can't be cordial without all the sniping and backstabbing, then just cut her out. You'd be doing her a great favor. But then, that's the last thing you would do, isn't it?
Vanderpump RULES? Who's setting the rules? not you lady. I think all disrespectfully kids in their 20's should go to you as you let them be so unprofessional and petty MY GOODNESS, such a disgrace! no wonder the Europeans make fun of us! You are not doing anyone an favors by letting them be like that at work. SO do us all a favor and BRING ON THE RULES for Goodness SAKES!
I'm realllllllly confused as to why Pandora is comingling with these people. She seems to be super imbedded into the drama, surprisingly so. The joint party with Sheana? Who the where?? Why would you EVER equate your precious daughter with the likes of her?? I understand that you have to have a professional relationship with Sheana but it sure looks well beyond the workplace when you are having her a joint party with your daughter and buying her the same gift. No wonder Brandi ends up put out with you.
Yes you should have fired Kristen. I've always liked you Lisa, but I feel like the drama is being bumped up for ratings (I hate the drama) and while it used to be near you, it is becoming more like you are involved in it. Not a good thing.
Your staff was serving at your home for your 30th anniversary party Lisa so they do serve at parties outside the restaurant. Talk about unprofessional behavior, fighting, making personal comments on camera about the hosts of the party eating off of serving dishes, smoking on the job, not staying to finish the job and clean up! Basic 101 restaurant / catering here. Yuck!
Well, your staff at SUR made Kyle look like a very reasonable person. Congrats!
Stassi behaved horribly last season and yet she's back.... really, why are you surprised other staff members think they can dictate what they do?
There must be struggling actors in LA who can make a show interesting and dramatic without making the viewers think you must be hiring only wannabe actor/models with untreated personality disorders.
Ok...You're my favorite housewife....blah blah blah...etc. You should have fired Kristen. I was surprised you didn't especially after you fired Frank last year. Yes...he deserved it but was she any less guilty? She was disrespectful to her boss and...just like Frank..made Sur look bad. Why did you pull a double standard here? It's not like you to compromise your beliefs. I was a bit disappointed in you frankly (no pun intended). Also...I think you're a little hard on Tom. He's different than the rest (he has an elegance about him that I'm surprised you haven't noticed). He could learn a lot from you if you let him. You seem to embrace Jax and his hijinks for some unknown reason...why keep Tom at arm's length? Yes...I am a Tom fan but I think I am pretty good at reading people and I think he's worth the effort.
You are an adult, they are kids. A tooth is a tooth, stay out of the kid's drama. As their employer, why would you weigh in with Stassi calling Sheana?
That Kristen is so immature and insecure. Everything she says is all about her, that is a definite sign of stunted emotional maturity if in fact she's 30 years old. Unfortunately Lisa you are the one in the position to teach her. The only thing that will do that at this point is her life falling down around her. UGH! She is never going to get it if it doesn't profoundly affect her.
I just lost 10 IQ points watching this show. Lisa, why why why, with this show? You're so much more interesting than this.
Lisa who came up with the idea for this show? I just watched it for the first time and I am so surprised that you would have anything to do with these people. Do you really need all that attention. With all the women you have pushed aside as no longer friends I am beginning to believe that it is your fault because you are shallow.
Lisa, you are without a doubt, my favorite Housewife because you are so much more than a Housewife.
I was glad to hear Sur does not cater often because I was appalled by the actions and lack of professionalism
in your staff. Standing around chatting with each other, not knowing you "Clean up" after an event"?
As a Certified Event Planner, I would have had a Captain at the event to direct this group of Children.
Your business would not be a success if you were not a great business woman, so I would suggest
staying away from the Catering business. Also, I understand why you didn't fire Kirsten, but you should
I know you have history with most of your staff but you are right, Kristin should have been fired! You are a smart and successful business women. You deserve a staff that respects you! Unfortunately, most of them do act like they are 12. It does make great TV, so obviously you know what you are doing!
While this is supposed to be a reality show it really isn't. Reality is that you don't keep your job when you are insubordinate. I'm not sure why people watch, but I assume it is due to the cast being somewhat attractive. It is quite common in LA to wait tables or bar tend while one pursues another career, generally acting, but this group seems to be pursing a dead end. If I was 30 and waiting tables, going nowhere fast, I would be incredibly depressed, except in this situation they're on a reality show making a little money with a glimmer of hope. It will be interesting to see how things pan out when the show is over. I too would not hire Sur to cater my party. The staff are there to serve and clean up, not eat, drink, smoke and leave a mess. On the human side they have little if any redeeming qualities. I wouldn't show my face if I behaved the way they do, especially the girls. Stassi's dad's a hoot. He's disappointed in his darling daughter's choice of boyfriend. Why isn't he disappointed in her choice of career and what she's doing or not doing with her life?
I'm sorry I chose to waste my time watching this episode. Never again. Life is too short to watch immature, vapid people slam down drinks and treat their place of employment as well as their employer with such contempt.
Posting this again because I think It didn't post before. It's amazing to me that you can make so many snarky put downs about Kyle not being a business women. Do you honestly that that a good business woman keeps someone on who flips out, tells you off , swears sand walks out of a catering event? Do you also think it's good business to keep a staff on board who stand around and do nothing at a clients house and the client has to repeatedly ask who's cleaning it up ? Doesn't sound like good business to me. I've always liked you on both shows , but you were awful last night.
Lisa is just going to let nature take its course - on camera for the world to see. A slightly prettier blond is getting ready to push her way into Kristen's place. Its a spectator sport. Nothing more, nothing less.
Scheana is completely crazy , just sayin' and what a TROUBLE MAKER among your staff , good luck Lisa !
You are not their mother you are their boss start acting like one. Pick slips need to be passed out immediately. Are there not lots of pretty people in LA and more mature?
What I don't understand and maybe it's just for TV why are you friends with your employees. It's good to be friendly but taking one of your waitresses shopping and buying her a dress?? I would also think Pandy would have a higher class of friends. She's the owner's daughter, why is she fraternizing with the hired help? I don't see her hanging out with your housekeeper or gardener! The whole bunch is more suited for The Olive Garden.
@Jo-Ro I agree but i think you are forgetting, more drama more money for her. She's the producer of this show.
@Palm13 Kids are off limits. Digg at me, not my kids. That may have been ok in front of your kids but most mothers would not agree
@walterscott Seriously? When they bring it to the work place (be it SUR or a catering gig like Kyle's) it IS her business. You are the one who looks like a fool. Get out in the real world.
@eva.pina THEY'RE NOT KIDS!!! THEY'RE ADULTS!!!
@louis1111 louis because it gets her show the ratings....no other reason to keep these unqualified people on the payroll.
@miranda99 I'm sorry, they are NOT kids. They are in their mid twenties/early 30's. Hell, Jax looks 40. They're closer to Lisa's age than kids.
@miranda99 They are NOT kids - they just act like it.
@miranda99 I am SOOO glad someone else feels this way!!! I love Lisa but seriously woman needs to mind her own business! How unprofessional to pick sides with your employees.
@miranda99 Wait!! THEY'RE NOT KIDS!!! They're 30 year olds!!!
LOVE IT. And so agree. LOVE, LOVE you Lisa but CAN NOT watch these ugly people on this show.
@patcaseygold I am astounded the way you handle your staff. You are not a leader. Yes you should have fired Kristen but also Stassi would have been gone last year if she worked for me. She is the problem of your restaurant along with LEADERSHIP. The show is now a bore. No one would run a restaurant like yours with your employees. This is for sure a unreal situation for the cameras. I have grown sick of you with your pompous attitude. Your true colors have shown up with the attention you have received from the TV coverage.
@fairytell why are you so obessed with Scheana? You're a nutty as Stassi.
I was surprised that some of these children are 30. That is way past the age of acting like an adult.
@trixie123 The Olive Garden runs a classy restaurant. How could you possibly compare them with Lisa's restaurant? I patronize the Olive Garden frequently and have never witnessed employees drinking, fighting, arguing and being disrespectful. NEVER!!!!!!!!!!
@trixie123 I am seriously sad that people that think like you are allowed to share the air I breathe... What's hilarious is that I'm sure you've never experienced their world and by that token have no right to assume that they cannot treat their staff humanly and in the process befriend a few of them.
