Okay, so a couple of days ago, I had this idea for a blog where I would go through EVERY SINGLE ONE of Brandi’s RHOBHs blogs and pull out all the parts that relate to her changing alliances and especially feeling toward Lisa. God that was a dumb idea. I realized it was dumb after the first six hours or so of cutting and pasting. But for some reason I just could not toss all that cutting and pasting out. Nor could I just stop and not finish. So here is with limited commentary. I am really trying to see how Brandi got to be team captain for the Richards Sisters at this reunion. This really doesn’t clear up a damn thing. It will give you some clues and some LOL moments regarding her hypocrisy. I hope you enjoy. Or at least despise reading it less than I despised creating it! Leave lots of comments to let me know your observations.

Paul and Adrienne are wonderful, cool, and honest people whom I adore more and more as time goes on. No BS with those two. Getting a bird’s eye view of what these women were actually saying behind my back was a little hurtful. At least Lisa said things to my face (although I was very intimidated by her). I respect that so much more then than behind your back gossip. I don’t think these women were being very fair to me, but girls will be girls. [Source]

The bbq was my first chance to meet Camille and I felt we bonded immediately. She has always been so genuine and we have so much in common! Moral of the story is that I always try to give people the benefit of the doubt and have a good time. And once again, Adrienne and Camille came off as the class acts they are! [Source]

I was determined to win Lisa over this episode so I brought a McQueen clutch to show her my love for the British. It didn’t work — back to the drawing board! [Source]

Lisa and Ken are an amazing couple and have a wonderful marriage — something many of us admire. [Source]

I am by no means an authority on these matters, but I have been around a lot of people in my life with drug and alcohol problems. I helped to save my best friend Jennifer when she was at her rock bottom, and I have had to walk away from people in my life that I couldn’t help. At the time, I had to stay focused on my own health and sanity (and that of my children) as I went through my divorce. I wish nothing but the best for Kim. I hope she conquers this battle and gets better for herself and for family. [Source]
January 31, 2012 ( Season 2 Reunion)
Heading into the reunion, I had an idea that the women might go for Lisa and as soon as I get on stage, Lisa is teary eyed and seemingly broken. She’s my friend. I know exactly what it feels like to be in a room with these ladies and be the target with no one sticking up for you. I’m extremely loyal, I have a temper, and I will stand up for my friends. To make one thing very clear, Lisa has never said a bad thing about any of these women to me; that is one of the things I respect most about her.
Lisa is a smart, strategic, and successful businesswoman. She is neither calculating nor manipulative. [Source]
February 9, 2012 (Reunion Part 2)
I think the Richard sisters have a hard time accepting responsibility for their actions. Excuses and placing blame seem to be their answers to most of life’s problems. I mess up all the time. I misspeak and have regrets about my actions, but owning up to my wrongdoing, saying sorry, and being truly remorseful is how I roll. [Source]
That is the end of Season 2 when Brandi was a “friend of (Adrienne).” It’s clear reading back that she was pining for Lisa the whole time. At the reunion when Adrienne and Lisa threw down, Brandi jumped to Team Lisa and the rift between Adrienne and Brandi was formed.
November 4, 2012
During our hiatus, Lisa and myself grew very close, and Adrienne and myself grew very, very far apart. Let me just say that besides the fact that Adrienne brought me into this group in the first place she definitely tried her hardest to exclude me from the group after the reunion. . .A couple of people did actually, but clearly it didn’t work. So coming into this season I am none too pleased with Adrienne, because I need this more than anyone else. [Source]
December 10, 2012 ( AKA the day my blog exploded after Brandi’s surrogacy comment about Adrienne)
My frustrations with Adrienne since last season’s reunion have been boiling for some time, and I finally reached my breaking point. I understand why Paul was upset with me and he was just defending his wife’s honor. But I don’t think even Paul was aware (at the time) of how underhanded she could be. [Source]

I simply had a ten-second, fully clothed makeout session with a hot man. The only person that walked in was Lisa and she pulled me out of the bathroom by my ear like a good mum. (BTW I dated that hot man for six months after “bathroom gate”. We are still close friends, in fact he is my real estate agent!) [Source]
March 26, 2013 Season 3 Reunion
As you will soon see the “sisters” tag team moments come and go as the flip on each other. I understand that Kyle wants to be Lisa’s best friend, but I don’t think trying to take her other friends out one by one by throwing us under the bus is the way to win Lisa back.
Lisa is an amazing human being, mentor, and friend, and Yolanda is the same. I would “cut a bitch” for either on of them. Kyle, Kim, and Taylor can be fun at times but those are the kind of girls you have to watch yourself around. [Source]
And that is the end of season three. Everything is roses and sunshine between Brandi and Lisa.
In the very first blog Brandi talks about how her relationships on the show have changed and she is going to try to blog from the place that she was at the time but that will be hard. Well she was completely unable to do it and started taking digs at Lisa right away. Even though on the episode they are still close. Every blog from here on out is written by Brandi from a place of ill will toward Lisa. We have yet to see anything to cause this. We are all supposed to be shocked by the Puerto Rico trip. We will have to wait and see if Lisa turns into a demon or sprouts a third head or something.
In closing I would love to say I am shocked about the level of closeness and ass kissing between Lisa and Scheana. At that particular time I would have been quite shocked by it, but sadly I now know better — and it is hard to pretend otherwise. [Source]

Yolanda, Lisa and I have a lunch out back at Lisa’s home. The setting couldn’t have been more beautiful. During our lunch Lisa takes a few digs at Kyle (again) and a little dig at me about needing puzzles to help stimulate my brain. For a second, until Yolanda laughed, it was a little uncomfortable because Lisa’s digs towards me are becoming more regular and starting to slightly annoy me. [Source]

While I do believe that Lisa fainted, I had to give her a bit of a hard time about it because it was oh sooo pretty. Maybe when she fainted she hit her head — that would explain her recent memory loss of a certain conversation we had. I am many many things, but a liar isn’t one of them, and you will see who the real liar is as you watch this season.
I read of Lisa’s health issues in her blog this morning, and honestly I am quite shocked. After almost a year of morning phone calls from her and hanging out constantly, I have never heard of or seen any of Lisa’s health issues, other then her faint. I honestly feel like someone is playing the victim card pretty hard here. [Source]
December 2, 2013 (Blog Title, I Feel Sorry for Kyle)
Lisa and I were still in a good place at this time, so we decide to do a little bit of bathing suit shopping for our upcoming trip. Although I own over 100 bikinis, some of which are one-of-a-kind that I designed myself, I have a little bit of an obsession with them and can always use more. [Source]
For the next five posts, all Brandi does is rail on Joyce. She mentions Lisa once only to say that she is suspicious that Joyce and Lisa know each other since they have so many mutual friends through Mohamed. #ConspiracyTheory

When I didn’t give Lisa the reaction she was hoping for she asked me to go over and say something to Scheana about her engagement. . .what should I have said? “Make sure not to let him have any poker nights so he doesn’t cheat on you?” Not to mention Scheana spent the entire evening flirting with my date J.R. For a newly engaged woman I don’t think that is a good sign. This triangle Lisa continues to try to create between her, Scheana, and it isn’t healthy for me and makes it incredibly difficult to move forward because I’m constantly being reminded of the troubles from my past. If Ken had cheated on Lisa and his mistress worked for me I probably would have fired her or made sure that she and Lisa never crossed paths. . .But that’s just how I roll.
Yes there was one time when Lisa threw a Mother’s Day brunch and Pandora’s jewelry line and she asked me to come to Villa Blanca. She did say Scheana would be there, but asked if I could please, please come anyway because it would mean a lot to her. I went to the brunch for Lisa. I’ve done a lot for Lisa when it comes to Scheana and now I’d like to have my wishes respected and move on with no more surprise visits from this waitress. It’s clear to me watching Vanderpump Rules that Scheana and Lisa are far closer than boss and employer. It actually breaks my heart because I truly thought Lisa was my friend for the right reasons. I hope one day we can figure it all out.
