The past two weeks have not brought us many Bravo blogs. I guess even reality whores get the holidays off. But there are two RHOBH blogs that are a bit interesting. They are sort of from two weeks ago and or covering both weeks. It seems that Kyle is unhappy with some of the things she is seeing on the show now with regard to Lisa. And Lisa has a whole lot to say about the rest of them and seems to not be terribly fond of Yolanda.
Kyle’s Point of View:
We see Lisa V. and Ken return from Lisa getting her star in Palm Springs and debating whether or not they should go to Brandi’s housewarming. I can understand their reservations after the drastic turn their friendship took.
Lisa V. and Ken discussed whether or not I had called to congratulate her on her star in Palm Springs. Considering I was never told about it nor invited, that didn’t really make sense. Lisa said last week that she didn’t invite or want any of us there. Yet we are supposed to know and congratulate her? I was actually in Spain during this time and didn’t return until the night before Brooke’s wedding. Moments like this are frustrating and hurtful, because Lisa V. and I are in a good place now. That’s what is difficult about going back six months in time.
Here is what Lisa Vanderpump has to say:
At this point for me to greet each and every person politely was not a problem. I had been frantically busy and preoccupied and now realized how ridiculous it had been. Yes, as Brandi says, I understand it’s a challenge, and you want something you can’t have, but remember, you had it and you threw it away after you trashed it and ran to everyone who would listen.
When Yolanda introduces Eileen Davidson as my friend Eileen, that’s funny. I thought you only just met her and she was Lisa R.’s friend, but I understood the message.
I hadn’t seen Yolanda except only once for lunch. It was a huge ask to expect somebody to give up two days and one I wasn’t comfortable doing. I think it was vaguely suggested to invite Yolanda, but since Puerto Rico, I had hardly seen her. I have many friends a lot closer, and I was reticent to put that pressure on them.
It was a difficult situation for me going back to that group of women at that barbecue and immediately to be cross questioned by Yolanda in a passive aggressive fashion…I am sure many things have transpired since last year, and I haven’t expected to be invited to any of them. As if…it’s almost too funny…I know we haven’t really spoken since
last year, apart from one brief lunch since we started the season, but would you give up two days of your life in 115 degree-heat and make a speech like every one of my friends did who had known me for years? Um no.
They had all been interacting, and I was on the periphery. They were all enjoying time together, but wow, does that change really quickly as personalies clash, lives become entwined, and tempers flare.
I saw Ken’s reticence to engage Brandi, then her saying, “Remember me? You used to love me…” is too funny. Yes he remembers, oh so well…how he would defend her to his detriment. Ken has a similar perspective to me–fiercely loyal to friends, but when they calculatedly try to destroy you, civility is maybe the best you can hope for.
I thought it was a bitchy comment from Kyle saying I hold a grudge. I feel just to engage with many of these women at all shows that I don’t, but I am not stupid enough to erase the past. I have the knowledge, and that is what protects me.
This season really gets started next week when all the relationships start finding different levels and opinions differ, some friendships are strengthened and others, well….
