The Bravo webmaster finally got around to putting up some current blogs. I shall post and comment on them for you here. This week Lisa Vanderpump is making her feelings very clear about who is on her friend’s list and who is not. It seems to me the only person who is really on the list right now is Eileen Davidson. Lisa Rinna seems to be tolerated and the rest are on her shit list. And for once she doesn’t hold back at all. So let’s get to it.
I decided to go to the party as I knew–and from seeing this footage of the group–that if I didn’t, I would be the topic of conversation, so arriving with a bottle of champagne stops it in its tracks.
Now the conversation with Brandi’s parents I thought was sweet–the way they were obviously aware that our relationship was no longer a positive one. Her mother, who I had invited to join us at dinner previously, a sweet woman, gently tried to explain how Brandi works, hurting feelings and then apologizing. It’s just unfortunate at this time. I am not interested. The friendship was not deep enough to weather that kind of storm. In regard to Brandi’s generous offer at my clothing event as she abused my beautiful olive tree, was supposed to shock, but no it was harmless. Words are just that. It didn’t offend me, but as usual, it was a classless example of somebody trying to garner attention.
Oh the shade of it all. “I’m not interested…the friendship wasn’t that deep in the first place. She’s a classless attention whore.”
I would say contrary to the little bitchy comments about holding a grudge, I would like to explain my sentiments. I believe if someone truly hurts you, unintentionally of course, you can forgive them, but if somebody calculatedly tries everything In their power to destroy your reputation, I would say forgiveness is not an option. One would be foolish to embrace them into your life again. It is not a grudge, it is knowledge, as long as you don’t hold onto the anger, which would breed bitterness, and that has no place in your life. That is why I can interact, even playfully tease. There is nothing at stake anymore. Hindsight is 20/20, but foresight is better. Forewarned is forearmed.
More Brandi shade with a stab at Kyle for her “little bitchy comments about holding a grudge.”
As far as her feelings on Yolanda go…
Yolanda mentions yet again that I failed to invite her to another important event in my life, the opening of PUMP, and that if we were friends, I would’ve done so. Correct. At that time, to invite all those women could not have been furthest from my mind. Also the whole Vanderpump Rules group would be there, which, as you know, Scheana was part of, bearing in mind that she was working for me for years before I was friends with Brandi, before anyone was aware that there was a connection. So knowing that, even if I was closer to any of them, I would not put myself in that position again. I would never question why I was not invited somewhere. I wouldn’t want to go to a party that I wasn’t invited to.
Some people dwell on the negative, especially when they are looking for something. I would be happier if after what has gone down between us all, some would just say, “Well I am glad we are here now, and yes, I can see how hard you must have worked to open this place. I now understand why last year maybe you couldn’t make some events…” Now that would be a move in the right direction.
Yes, love is a big word, and that hurt to see that. I don’t use it flippantly. I love Mohammed and Yolanda’s children. Of that, I am sure. Many,many weekends and lunches with them and Mohamed have created that bond. I have always been hopeful that Yolanda would be included in that equation.
Who had that the real issue between Yolanda and Lisa in the blog pool. Yolanda knows Mohammed is much closer with Lisa than she is with him. She is also probably livid that Lisa and Shiva hang out and go shopping and that Lisa fully embraces her. Jealousy. It’s a bad emotion.
About the comment Brandi made about Scheana…
I hadn’t seen any of these women, and I am sure since Puerto Rico and the final party, there had been many events. I had not heard from them, and I was fine about that. When I see once again the attempt to suggest that Scheana Marie–a waitress, friend of Pandora’s, and a member of Vanderpump Rules–is my best friend is ludicrous, but I understand where they are going with it…Not patronizing anybody, but I move in different social circles and don’t need to be best friends with somebody 30 years younger than me. She is one of my employees for six years, who is close with my daughter, but knowing her, she is a lovely young woman who made a mistake, but categorically not my best friend.
Which leaves us with the ones she likes this season, Lisa and Eileen…
I appreciated the fact that Lisa and Eileen were kind enough not to be dragged into the negativity. I have enjoyed getting to know Eileen for sure. I do feel there is a divide between women who are fulfilled and happy in their lives, stimulated by their careers or the demands of motherhood and are not searching for something negative. That is a woman I bond with for sure.
So basically she says that she and Eileen, and possibly Lisa Rinna have lives and the rest of them are just negatively seeking attention. Hmmmm, if you think about it. She’s kind of right. All this shade sent Brandi’s way is going to hurt her feelings and piss her off.
I’m kind of shocked that Lisa is going there so early in the season. Are you? Also what do you think about Lisa’s writing abilities?
