This season, Lisa Vanderpump has found herself at the wrong end of many attacks by people she has considered friends for years. All season long, the Richards sisters and Brandi have been promising us that “we will see” what a manipulative bitch Lisa is. Well, so far, they are coming off as the backstabbers. Last night Kyle was nice to her face while ripping her up in her talking heads. Brandi was going back to her first season to look for problems with her relationship with Lisa. Brandi is also claiming Lisa was controlling her mind and telling her what to do and say after two seasons of screaming to anyone who will listen that she is her own person and nobody’s mouthpiece. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t see how making Lisa Vanderpump cry on national television is going to make these three assholes look better. We will see next Monday I suppose.
Lisa clears the air on the Cedric issue that Brandi decided to bring up last night:
I am of course extremely upset when I see, for example, Brandi bringing up the subject of Cedric. All of you who have followed the story from the beginning will understand Cedric was a precarious subject and one that out of loyalty to Brandi I would never have raised. But now she is saying I had Cedric deported. I will explain, with regard to him being deported. It should have been done, but unfortunately Housewives don’t have that much influence over Homeland Securities. . .If after he left us he was working in violation of his visa, then I am sure it was a problem. I believe he left to return to England of his own volition and to renter America he would need another sponsor.
The most interesting thing that I discovered, which I would never have exposed is the fact that Brandi had never met Cedric. She wasn’t a “friend” of his and they hadn’t modeled together. She had somehow concocted the story with somebody else. She came into my life on a lie. . .that should have spoken volumes.
With regard to Brandi making waves in Lisa’s relationship with Kyle:
Again, it’s confusing as to why Brandi felt the need to run to Kyle to try to create a rift between us. Now I have a better understanding when I see Brandi tweeting that she was a little jealous of Kyle and I when they had shown us playing in the pool, and remarking how she found it strange as she believed Kyle and I weren’t that close.
It seems that after the reunion was filmed, and Brandi threw Kyle under the bus regarding Brandi’s libelous claims about Lisa filing bankruptcy, Kyle has seen through Brandi and amends were made between Kyle and Lisa.
Now after reading Yolanda’s blogs and having seen endless comments on film, I have realized I called it wrong. Obviously Kim and Kyle had been truthful about what had transpired in Paris, I just had refused to believe it. Joyce had warned me at the beginning of the season, and I chose to ignore her account of Yolanda desperately trying to engage her in a detrimental conversation about me. I didn’t know Joyce at that time and I was hoping that the bond between Yolanda, Mohamed, and our families would supersede the negativity she harvested.
So it seems that Yolanda and Lisa have not mended their relationship as of today?
I understood at the beginning of the season there was no support from the other women. It was discussed in rehearsals when I was on Dancing With the Stars between us struggling competitors how strange it was. How it was expected that the Housewives or members of a competitors team would vociferously tweet and vote in support. Apart from Brandi tweeting a couple of times, the other Housewives were silent. They came for the one appearance, that you saw on the show.
The other housewives did seem rather green with envy about Lisa landing on DWTS. Especially, Brandi who seems to think she deserves such experiences. Kyle, Kim and Brandi were not the least bit sympathetic about Lisa’s exhausting schedule that resulted in her fainting during rehearsals.
But I never expected this, and to be honest after seeing all the episodes it has been pretty traumatizing. I thank Carlton and Joyce for being so supportive. In the year I have known them I have grown to adore them. They will testify to the fact that I never talk negatively about the other women.
This whole storyline is extremely sad. It seems no good deed goes unpunished when it comes to Lisa. Is anyone out there actually on Brandi and the Richards sisters side in this debacle? If so I would love to hear your rationale.
