Just to clarify some confusion: I did not manipulate Lisa R. into saying the truth about Lisa V. I’ve been hearing what Lisa V. has been doing all season long regarding Yolanda and what happened the day Munchausen was brought up. Lisa R. came to me many times with information about Lisa V.’s attempts to “manipulate.” I did not want to be in the middle of it anymore. I didn’t like knowing the truth and either having to pretend I didn’t or be the only one saying anything. So I asked Lisa R. to address it with Lisa V. herself.
This makes a lot of sense to me. For one thing, much like Kyle, Eileen seemed to be wanting nothing more all season than to be friends with LVP. She made numerous attempts to get in her good graces. And then came the day when she realized that LVP was not her friend. LVP clearly wanted to make Eileen’s marriage a storyline. I believe that was the producers plan from day one of filming the season. I believe that Eileen squashed it by saying that Vince would not be willing to film anymore once they realized what was happening. But at the point that LVP started prying, the topic was still on the table from a production standpoint. It was then that Eileen realized that LVP was willing to disparage her marriage on TV. Eileen was hurt. She wanted to be friends with LVP. She kept hoping LVP would apologize for hurting her feeling. She kept trying to give LVP an out and each time she made things worse and apologized for ridiculous things like asking her questions and laughing in her face.
All during this, Rinna was playing Nancy Drew regarding Yolanda’s odd health claims. MUCH LIKE EVERY SINGLE PERSON ON THE INTERNET INCLUDING ALL OF US! (and Kyle and LVP) So if Rinna is crazy so are we all. As Eileen says “she didn’t like knowing the truth” about LVP. And that truth was that LVP was willing to harm Eileen’s marriage and out Yolanda for having Munchhausen for a good storyline.
Reading Kathryn’s blog post from last week, it is obvious she did not understand this. I don’t blame her; she came in halfway through the season and still hasn’t witnessed, or been privy to, what I have. However, after this episode, it would be a shame of her to continue her misunderstanding of what really transpired. What is also so obvious to me, and hopefully obvious to everyone who watches this episode, is this: Lisa Rinna told the truth. Kyle told the truth. I have been telling the truth, shouting it from the highest rooftops, really. THE truth. Not mine. Not theirs. The one and only truth.
It amazes me that so many people do not get this point. Rinna, Kyle and Eileen all agree about what LVP said. Rinna and Kyle both heard the words straight from LVP’s mouth. LVP is trying to draw some distinction between “I thought you were going to bring Kyle into it.” and “Why didn’t you bring Kyle into it!” Both Rinna and Kyle were told some version of that by LVP herself. Both Rinna and Kyle said it was clear that LVP wanted Kyle to take the fall for the Rinna stuff. Kyle has known this forever and basically agreed to do it. You know that LVP told Kyle to ask her what Mohammed thought about the kids supposedly have Lyme disease. If you don’t, you’re an idiot. Kyle clearly agreed to give LVP an opening to bring that up.
How any of this is Rinna or Eileen’s fault that causes you guys to turn like a pack of rabid wolves on two people who you all LOVED last season is beyond me.
P. S. I told you Lisa Vanderpump was never really sorry
I don’t remember you telling us that. I do remember shouting it at my TV several hundred times as you continued to think you might get an apology from her. I’m glad you finally understand that.
As for Rinna, she’s in Mexico with Harry Hamlin and her spawn sucking down margaritas and didn’t have the energy to rehash the drama for her blog. Which basically says, “I’m on vacation so y’all can just suck it!”
Now you can all sit down and feel bad about yourselves for being so mean to Eileen and Rinna.
