I know y’all seemed to think I was reading a lot into Lisa’s blog last week when I said she seemed to be taking the greatest aim toward Yolanda, and I am going to continue to read into her blog this week. By the way, I was right about her being more pissed at Yolanda than the rest of them. It seems to continue this week. But now I am really starting to think Lisa has had her fill of RHOBH. I had a whole lot of other things to say but I am super behind on getting ready to blog RHONY.
I will say that Brandi’s blog is a bitchfest this week and almost every single comment is telling her off. I am still slogging through Yolanda’s which so far is all about how sick she was and how Lisa didn’t care. Kim says she had the best year ever on her planet. Sigh. Read the excerpts from Lisa’s blog below and tell me if you agree that she seems over the whole damn thing.
When I remember the innocence of the show four years ago, I would never have anticipated the level of cattiness and the bitchy, pack-like mentality that this experience has deteriorated into. The backstabbing of certain Housewives took it to a whole different level. It felt like I was drowning in a sea of negativity. I tried my best to swim against the tide, but the current pulled me under. I succumbed to a depressed state and vociferously threw myself into work.
So, seeing the other women over the last five months in interviews, all repeatedly stating that this would be my downfall, has been an experience to say the least.
I compensated by focusing on what was important — my family and my business. I have come to the conclusion, in the aftermath of the hurt and confusion. I was angry — but then I realized the best revenge was to get over it. Nothing pleases your opponents more than to see you suffer.
I was a huge supporter as she relayed her [Brandi] story to me — a divorcee, struggling, desperate to join this group for all the opportunities that would accompany it. I was her biggest advocate. That was my first mistake — defending her, often to my detriment. That will never be resolved. That train has well and truly left the station.
After an arduous two-and-a-half hours at the final party, half-an-hour of trying to reason with Brandi (much you didn’t see, including her yelling “I checkmated you bitch.”), it was all too much. Yolanda’s relentless pursuance of me, telling Ken how “David would never associate with the likes of you.” It finally came to a climax and we left.
I then heard how Yolanda was brushing away tears, shaking, saying a man should never put his hands on a woman. I thank god that you can see the innocuous interaction. What actually transpired was the most disappointing of all, as the mean spirited actions tried to incriminate my dear husband. I was there and mystified as to the level that they would stoop to, trying to malign his character. I then understood as I looked at the two of them together, that this dream team — one orchestrated by Yolanda — (one that I had not wanted to be part of) had fulfilled their agenda.
I am deeply involved in the many fruitful aspects of my life, work, family, and charities, and am perfectly happy that this experience is behind me. I always remember my mantra — love and laughter supersedes all.
