Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Season 5 Episode 3
God Bless Michael Bolton
Lisa welcomes us to this week of RHBH and talks about how grateful she is for our kind words. We have all been super nice to her so far…but the bloom will be off the vine soon enough.
Speaking of my birthday dinner at Pump, how freaking amazing is Lisa?! Words simply cannot express how grateful I am for my friendship with Lisa and Ken! The restaurant was insanely gorgeous, and the company I shared that evening was nothing less than perfect. Our neighbors, Robin and Jim Botko, along with Kyle and Mauricio and Lisa and Ken, set the scene for the intimate dinner setting I had wanted.
Please dear God, please let me have friends like Lisa Vanderpump in my next life who will throw me these kinds of birthday parties. Please? Haven’t I been good enough? Lisa tells us how Harry has been in Canada and then explains how the ring was actually super special…
Needless to say, the Cartier Trinity ring he gave me that night was also very meaningful and special for me. You see, he gave me a similar ring upon the birth of our firstborn, Delilah Belle, and it had her name engraved on it. The ring meant absolutely everything and when it went missing from our home a few years back, I was beyond devastated. Being the wonderfully thoughtful man he is, HH bought me this one with the three bands all engraved. One with Harry, one with Delilah and one with Amelia. I now have my family with me always.
OK, I am jealous. I would love a ring like that. And the Michael Bolton story is just divine. I love how Hollywood is “so small” when it comes to stuff like this…everyone knows everyone and has been with everyone. PERFECTION!
By the reaction I have seen on Twitter, I know that I am certainly not alone in my great excitement that Eileen Davidson has made her debut as a Housewife this week! We worked together on Days of Our Lives from 1993 to 1995, and we spent a lot of time together. We worked 18-hour days and when neither of us had to be on set, we would be found together, gossiping and hanging out in one of our bunker-style dressing rooms in the basement!
I actually had to look up Eileen on her IMDB to see who she was on Days (I used to watch and she looked so familiar but couldn’t remember who she was…and then Lisa explains! She was Kristen DiMera (married to Tony I believe). She was also on Young and the Restless but I never watched so don’t know anything there.
Oh my God, you guys…How pretty did Kim’s daughter look in the Mark Zunino wedding dresses? Wow. She’s already a beautiful girl, but then to see her in Mark’s fabulous dresses was breathtaking. He is a dear friend of mine, and I’m honored to have a clothing line on QVC alongside of his.
And here comes the portion of the blog with Product Placement. I did skip on over to QVC to see her clothes. Not bad. Reasonably priced and quite cute. I doubt very much that she wears any of these clothes cause they are kinda flowy and more “Kyle” to me, but hey, maybe they sell. Lisa R. loves Yolo’s girls. Says they are gorgeous and love the scenes with her and her daughter. I find them weird. I will go more into in Yo’s blog, but just sayin here, who tells their kid NOT to get a college education? She asks us to keep tuning in and says she loves being on this journey. “Until next week” with X’s and O’s.
An Invite to a Party isn’t Always the Answer
Kyle starts off by relating to Lisa R.’s experience of having her lovely girls help her get dressed and how she, too, never takes their advice. She loves seeing Gigi’s career take off and claims that Gigi has a good head on her shoulders. Well, she has been dating some major hotties so I am thinking she has some other special skills.
When I met Mauricio, there was an immediate attraction. Like nobody else was in the room. After I told him I was engaged that night, I didn’t see him again until six months later when I ran into him at a club. I had broken up with my fiancé by that point, and we picked up where we left off six months earlier. We have been together ever since.
Very sweet story although I would kinda love for the X-Fiance to share his side, but that’s me.
Have to give Brandi props for the timer idea while talking to her lawyer. I haven’t had to deal with many lawyers, but the couple times I did, I wish I would have thought about that!
Wow, it’s like Brandi discovered the cure for Ebola. Yes, lawyers bill you in segments and that is why you don’t make idle chit-chat with them cause you are paying them to hear all about your crap. Keep it short and to the point.
Taking the girls shopping is a fun daddy/daughter time for Mauricio. Portia, like most kids, will try to test us at times. She has her moments where I have to keep her in check. I am always the disciplinarian with our kids. She’s at that age where she likes to see how far she can push us and what she can get away with. I’ve seen it with all our girls around this age, and it can be challenging. Mauricio usually makes it more challenging. I will say no while he says yes. I am constantly asking him to not undermine me. It’s unavoidable that these moments will happen with little ones, but how it’s handled is very important. You have to nip it in the bud.
I was actually really impressed by Kyle in this scene. She was irritated by Mo, as would I have been. She stuck to her guns. Didn’t seem to care too much about Portia’s tears. Unfortunately, Bravo is going to continue to capture those moments when Portia acts like a brat (like all typical kids her age) and those will be what we will see. Kyle and Mo’s older girls seem to be very sweet which reflects on their parenting skills. I will not judge Kyle by the same standard that I have judged Tre.
My niece Brooke getting married is an exciting time for our family. She’s the first of our kids to be walking down the aisle. And Kim will be the first Mother of the Bride. Looking for dresses was fun with all my sisters and a bunch of our kids in tow. Our children (there are 12 between us) are extremely close. More like siblings than cousins. Everyone knows everything that’s going on with each other at any given time, so it seemed appropriate that we would all weigh in on which was the best dress for Brooke.
I’m gonna say it: I thought Kathy was a total bitch. Last season when she came to Kim’s house before Kimberly’s graduation she did the same thing to Kim and I thought it was awful. I think any bride has the right to try on and wear whatever her little heart desires. Shame on Kathy and now wonder her daughters are such rotten little bitches.
I knew that day Kim and Brooke were to be getting news about Monty’s health. My heart broke for Kim and Brooke. Monty has always remained close with our family, and to see what he is going through is heartbreaking. This should be the happiest time of Brooke’s life, and I know she is constantly worried about her father.
I know many divorced people DO NOT remain friends with their X’s and I am always imrpessed by those that can continue to have a relationship. Kim inviting Monty into her home shows true compassion and grace. It will allow her daughter to have as much time with her Daddy during this heartbreaking time. Huge props to Kim for being a very classy gal!
Brandi invited me to go on a hike with her. At this point we are becoming friends. Not close, but at least getting to know each other. When Brandi said she was going to call Lisa V. right then and there, I didn’t think it would go over well . Plus, I didn’t think she was going about it the right way, and I didn’t want to be there when she called her. However, she was set on calling, so I decided to just stay quiet. When her battery died, I hesitated to offer my phone. Lisa V. and I had just recently had our lunch and were working on our friendship. I didn’t want to be a part of Lisa V.’s and Brandi’s issues. However, I thought Lisa would think Brandi hung up on her, and I knew that would be another setback for them. Lisa isn’t going to forgive Brandi overnight. And an invite to her housewarming isn’t the answer.
Hmmm, Brandi has been on the show for 3 seasons now and Kyle says “we are becoming friends”- speaks volumes. Brandi reminds me of the saying, “Keep your friends close and keep your enemies closer.” The conversation with Lisa was awkward to say the least. Lisa obviously wasn’t having it and wasn’t gonna give Brandi the easy pass. Good for you Lisa! Too many people in Brandi’s life have allowed her to behave like this (you teach people how to treat you) and Lisa has decided she is not one of those people. I have people like this in my life…or not anymore for that manner. I am actually a little like Dina where I have a funeral in my head and I am done. I have no room in my life for certain people.
A Long Career is the True Reward
Eileen begins by asking for our patience while she learns the ropes of blogging. Me thinks she will not have hard time picking this up.
Let me tell you about how I landed on Housewives. Lisa Rinna and I have know each other since the 1980s. She was dating an actor that I was working with on The Young and the Restless, and I would see them socially on occasion. We became friends when we were both working on Days of Our Lives in the early 1990s. The show was much different in those days. Eighteen-hour days were not unusual, and Lisa and I spent a lot of time in our dressing rooms talking, rehearsing, and generally kvetching about the amount of work we were doing. We bonded during that time for sure. Our lives took us in different directions, but we still saw each other over the years. I was on her talk show Soap Talk, and we would run into each other on various red carpets. Seeing her for lunch was our chance to reestablish a friendship I treasure.
Hollywood and Beverly Hills seems like a very small world. She goes on to mention Kyle’s brief stint on Days of our Lives and that her husband worked with Kim on Nanny and the Professor.
Yolanda’s daughter, Gig went to High School with my stepson Vinny. She was actually at our house for a pool party a couple of years ago.
God, I hope Eileen served this girl some food. I hope there was a cake and brownies.
Winning the Emmy for Outstanding Performance by a Lead Actress has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I have said so many times that the true award is having a long career. Well, that’s true…but now that I’ve won an Emmy, I have to say that there’s something to be said for getting a trophy! Honestly though, I love playing the character Kristen Dimera on Days of our Lives (that’s the show I was working on when I was nominated). She’s out of her mind but so multidimensional. It’s both a challenge and so much fun to portray her. I’m incredibly blessed that I get to play two completely different characters on two different shows at the same time. And now be myself on a third. Oy!
I have a feeling Eileen is going to BRING IT from here on out. She gives me hope. I wish her luck. XOXO!
50 is the New 30
Yolo starts out by giving compliments to PUMP and admiring its picture-perfect setting. Yolo says “50 is the New 30”. Um, no. 50 is 50. I am 42 and 42 is well, 42. I wish my body looked the way it did when was 30…no, I wish it looked the way it did when I was 4 B.K. (4 years before kids). I was pretty rocking way back then. I didn’t have road map of stretch marks on my belly, my thighs didn’t move like a loose jelly mold and my upper arms didn’t wave at people on their own. But I digress.
It’s interesting as a mom to reflect on your own parenting skills. The core of our beliefs may stay the same, but our perspective changes over the years and evolves with each child that comes through us. I love each of my kids in unique ways and try to meet their different needs, so they can thrive and be their personal best.
Now, for those that like to “read ahead” or even those that follow gossip sites, we are about to find out some big news on the next episodes that is gonna give us some insight into Yolo’s parenting…
After Bella graduated this summer, I felt very confident in dropping the reins for her last month in Malibu before moving to New York. Eleven-thirty curfews seemed needless at that point. I thought if there was anything important that I had not taught her by now, I probably failed at my job.
I think Yolo is gonna eat her words. She is gonna have a HUGE plate filled with those words.
I fly commercial and have my whole life, so I recognize what a crazy luxury it is to travel in a private plane, but that’s what my husband works for. We appreciate every minute flying and never take it for granted. David’s childlike obsession with airplanes is his greatest joy in life. He has been a pilot since he was 20 years old. I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if we end up living in a hangar at a cute airport somewhere.
I don’t watch these shows to watch the HW fly commercial; I FLY COMMERCIAL and noone wants to watch that! I wanna see these ladies on huge private jets living the life I can only dream of, but having problems that make me grateful that my home is only 2400 square feet and I drive a Ford Flex (don’t judge! It looks like hearse, but drives like an SUV).
It was nice to see Brandi make the effort to reach out to Lisa V. I believe forgiveness is the best form of love in any relationship. It takes a strong person to say they’re sorry and an even stronger person to forgive. The truth is that some people never take any responsibility for their actions, never say sorry, and are never able to really forgive and move on. Unfortunately that’s just a fact of life.
I hate to sound like a broken record, but Yolo continues to remind us that it is much easier to be Brandi’s friend than her enemy. And Yolo who has alleged put her transgressions with Lisa V. aside, threw a little shade at Lisa. Not cool. So not cool.
Brandi is working hard and has created a beautiful home for her children. I wish she and Eddie could work things out and put all that money going to lawyers into an education fund for their boys, instead. Life is too short.
Blah blah blah. Brandi has worked very hard at partying and living the single life. The only thing she cares about is herself. If she cared about her boys she wouldn’t speak about their father on national tv the way she does.
Look at Kim and Monty. Seeing them puts everything in perspective. Kim has shown such a beautiful act of love by moving her ex into her home to care for him. I am happy to see the sisters pull together in this difficult time. Life is just so bittersweet.
Agreed. Enough said.
I can’t even imagine how the joy of preparing Brooke’s wedding is overshadowed by such tragic news. Watching Brooke just made me cry. She showed such inner strength and looked like an absolute angel to me; beautiful in every dress.
Does anyone mind if I mention again that Kathy was a complete bitch? No? Well, Kathy was a complete bitch during this scene.
Yolo is excited that Eileen has finally arrived. She loved seeing the old video of Lisa and Eileen. She is proud to have these kind, fun and extraordinary working women in the group. Yeah, let’s ask her about that at the reunion! Until next week…
The Words You Never Want to Hear
Kim hopes everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. She made 2 turkeys and they cooked for two days. She then goes on to say how she thinks Gigi is just “adorable”. Not sure there is a model anywhere over the age of 13 that wants to be “adorable”. I had been trying to figure it out for ages and I was watching old episodes of Ally McBeal when it me: Gigi looks like Portia DeRossi (to me).
It’s nice to see Lisa V. and Ken’s restaurant PUMP doing so well! It is such a beautiful restaurant, and they are always so kind and thoughtful to host dinners for their friends on special occasions.
And we have arrived at the part of the blog where we suck up to Lisa. Everyone is successful so far. I am not a person who can just “let something go” when I am hurt. Things that Kim said to Lisa last year were pretty awful. I’m glad to see them put it behind them, but I just don’t believe it.
Wow, and then there’s my baby girl! My first born… Brooke got engaged last Christmas! One of the most exciting calls I’ve ever gotten. I just love her fiancé Thayer. He is like a son to me. I couldn’t be more thrilled. My little girl, beautiful and sweet. My daughter is getting married, and it is so exciting!
Nolan Miller and Mark Zunino designed my wedding dress many years ago, so no better place to go than to see Mark. Just walking in the door with my girls and “the bride to be,” it became so surreal I almost started to cry!
I have to say that has to be a huge deal to moms. I remember when my Katie tried on First Communion dresses…well, it was a pretty big deal to me. We have never really gotten to see Kim in the “mom” role. I imagine her kids’ childhood was very difficult while Kim was struggling with her sobriety. I hope they are making up for lost time.
Brooke likes a very simple dress, not fluffy or with too many sequins. She had already decided what kind of dress she liked by looking at pictures in magazines. She wanted to try some on and see what she and Mark could come up with. My sister Kathy definitely had something different in mind for our girl. I think we were a little quiet for a moment, but Kathy has amazing taste. She only wants the best for us, and she’s definitely going to give her opinion! Kathy says you don’t buy the first thing you see. You have to try until you find the right one. Which is exactly what Brooke did! She and Mark worked together and designed the perfect dress! It wasn’t even something you could go in and buy. Mark sketched, Brooke told him what she liked, and it was the most beautiful dress for the most beautiful bride.
I am reminded of one thing: Opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one and everyone thinks their’s doesn’t stink. Every bride is so individual and envisions herself one way and it is very hard to mind. When I was married in 93, I chose the very first dress I tried on. It was a mermaid dress with huge puffy sleeves. Did I mention the sleeves were huge? Anyhoo…when my mom took me to try on dresses, she tried to get me in anything but this mermaid style. It didn’t work. I took her MY dress and tried it on and she realized that I had met my dress and I was done.
Brooke and Thayer originally were to get married early next year– a destination wedding on the beach. Brooke’s dad/my best friend Monty wasn’t feeling so good. He went in for a check up. He said it would be a few hours, but as I dropped him off and drove away, I got a horrible feeling. I turned the car around and headed back the doctor. He called me just a few minutes later and told me he had lung cancer. I said I knew that something wasn’t right and that I was already there! The words you never want to hear! And the thought of telling our daughter! Over that week we decided to have a wedding with just our immediate family, so that we could be sure that Monty would be able to walk Brooke down the aisle. It is something every little girl and every father dreams of! I was going to make sure that happened!
This is so perfect and sweet. We don’t know yet if the wedding has already happened (or do we), but I hope Monty is there to walk his little girl down the aisle.
For all you mothers out there with daughters who are becoming engaged to be married, this is a very exciting time! Wait until you see your daughter in her dress. It really is an amazing feeling. I can’t really describe it, but when when you experience it, I hope you remember reading this! The joy, pride, love, and emotion that you will feel is overwhelming…enjoy every moment of this experience!
If I read that paragraph again, my eyes might leak so I will just leave it at that. Much love to Brooke and Thayer.
Hindsight is 20/20
The Divine Miss V greets us warmly and jumps right in. She loved seeing Gigi and Bella. She clarifies the following:
…witness their progress with countless lunches and dinners spent with their Daddy Mohamed, gorgeous girls.
Me thinks she has not spent much time with these kids while they were with their mother. Lisa goes on to talk about PUMP and the b-day celebration. She loves Lisa R. For now.
We absolutely had an enjoyable evening, not peppered with negativity and provocative comments, but a dinner that was relaxed and funny, which has been a rare phenomenon in this arena, and I know Lisa loved it. As she opened her gifts, her man came to join her, and she was supported by true friends. That’s what life should be: Women who are comfortable in their own skin, so that they don’t feel compelled to compete. It was rather last minute, and I was happy to arrange it for her.
This was one of the few RH dinner parties that was pretty low-key. No one got drunk, no one accused another person of anything, no one decided to bring up something that happened 27 months ago.
Well as you saw, I was happily spending a rare moment of peace at home when I received the phone call from Brandi. I was oblivious to the fact that she was hiking with Kyle until she had to borrow her phone. I then realized how I was probably the topic of conversation as in the previous time they were hiking.
I bet Kyle made a poo in her pants when she had to hand her phone over. Kyle really had no way out of that. Brandi kinda set her up there. (Who else was impressed that Ken was planting rose bushes? He was a little sweaty in the pits and such so you could tell he was actually doing the work.)
Brandi had sent me an invitation, or rather her assistant had, and I had yet to respond. She was having a house warming, and she wanted her friends to come and toast her success of moving upwards, which I understood, as before I met her, before she was part of this whole scenario, she had explained to me life was difficult.
So, Brandi can blame Eddie for not being able to qualify for a mortgage, BUT she can pay an assistant? Or maybe the assistant was lent to her by Sonja and is really an intern working on college credit.
She had been challenged financially and was only too aware the benefits of being included in this group of women could entail.
Can I get an AMEN? I think we have finally found the root of why Brandi is in this group.
Just because time passes, feelings might change, but principles don’t. I was absolutely steadfast in my resolve to never acquiesce, to stand resolute by the fact that she had created a whole scenario which ultimately backfired and now perhaps to reignite the friendship would benefit her. Well that ship had sailed. Just unfortunately, she wasn’t on it.
I think Brandi really regrets throwing her mealticket under the bus. All her free meals at Sur and Villa Blanca are gone. No more free drinks served by hot waiters.
It is not about forgiveness, it is about awareness, and you will see how this relationship in the coming months unfolds: the sharp turns that were unforeseen, times of laughter that precede sudden moments of realization that maybe you were right all along.
God teaches that we must be forgiving. I get it. BUT, He didn’t make us stupid. That’s our choice. I’m with Lisa all the way on this.
I think the most important factor when you have been deeply hurt is to understand that whoever was responsible had their reasons, and sometimes they are too complicated to comprehend, but to rid yourself of the anger, as that is what is detrimental to yourself moving forward. But as I noted in my interview, hindsight is 20/20, but foresight would have been better. An apology would have gone a long way.
Brandi keeps griping that Lisa hasn’t apologized yet doesn’t clarify what she thinks she is owed an apology for. What great offense did Lisa commit in Brandi’s teeny brain? I will not apologize for something I did not do NOR will I apologize for something I am not sorry for doing.
You will enjoy getting acquainted with Eileen, a lovely woman that I am happy to call a friend, someone who is understated about her success and supportive of others. But adding a new cog to this wheel often changes the complexion of these existing friendships, so as always stay with us!
I think the two new gals this year are NOT shrinking violets. They are strong women who have had success in their lives. If I was one of those “shrinking violets” I would be afraid. Very afraid. Lisa hopes we had a happy thanksgiving and reminds us to count our blessings. Love.
Not a Good Time for My Phone to Die
Brandi dives right into Lisa R.’s b-day bash. Brandi is surprised Lisa is 50 and relates because they both like porn. Wow.
I have a house filled with boys and can’t imagine what it would be like to raise girls. Watching Yolanda with Bella, I feel I have a special connection with her, because like her, I too am a middle child with an older sister and a younger brother. We are not the firstborns, and we are not the babies. I feel, much like her, I am a bit of a rebel and don’t like it when people try and tell me what to do. I’m sure Bella will find her fair share of trouble as she grows into a strong woman, but I also know she will come out on top in the end, because us middle children are built tough.
Brandi would have been a terrible mother of a girl. Some women cannot handle their husband or partner loving another woman/girl and I imagine Brandi would have been jealous of her beautiful daughter…or if she felt her daughter was not “beautiful enough” she would have made that girl’s life miserable. This reminds me that God knows what he is doing.
We also see very serious scenes with Kim and Yolanda dealing with serious illness. It is very touching watching then talk about how much they love and care for their families. First, Yolanda’s mother in Holland and then Kim taking in her ex-husband Monty. I applaud them both. Two very strong, fierce women taking care of loved ones in need.
I actually give Kim a little more credit on the “caregiving” front by inviting in her X and caring for him personally.
Cut to my house where I’m having fun trying to decorate with my very good friend Adrienne. We have been friends for decades, and she always has my back. We were interrupted with a call from my attorney. I am really trying to find peace and happiness in my life, even when it comes to my ex husband. It’s been five long years since we split, and I would really like the fighting to just stop. Eddie decided after my second best-selling book Drinking and Dating was released, that he had overpaid me in child support and alimony over the past five years and would like to be reimbursed for the back payments–already spent on rent, food, and clothing to raise our children. Since I didn’t have the cash lying around, he was happy to take it from my tiny retirement fund, a small $114k. I had no choice but to hire a lawyer to fight for my retirement. Although I’m not going to just roll over and let him take my retirement account, I’m also bummed that this fighting continues. One thousand a month in L.A. is kinda sad for a guy who can earn $300k a year only working part time. So, now you know.
I kinda want to see an accounting of Brandi’s child support. How much is really spent on JUST rent, food and clothing (for the boys)? Also, SHAME ON BRANDI for airing her dirty laundry like this. This is the father of your and while you have every right to take this man to court, you do not have the “right” to do this publicly to your children’s father.
Eileeen is new to the group of women and knows Lisa R., whom I still at this time have not yet met. I see that Eileen won an Emmy for the soap that she was on, and I actually watched her on Days of Our Lives growing up and always “loved to hate her,” for breaking up Roman and Marlana. She said in her interviews she really liked attention, but then she also really didn’t like attention. I’m confused. After all, she did join Housewives, a cult pop culture series that gets a lot of attention. Maybe she is confused or, much like the character she plays, has an evil twin somewhere with a more outgoing personality. Or maybe she was being a smartass like me.
Oh, Eileen is gonna be Brandi’s arch enemy? Or is it Lisa R.? I am waiting with bells on. Last season was kinda a snooze fest and we knew from episode 2 what was coming.
I hadn’t really stayed in touch with anyone from this group while I was away in NYC filming Celebrity Apprentice, other then Yolanda and Carlton, both of whom were very helpful to me during that time. Celebrity Apprentice, by the way, was fabulous, exhausting, a full-time job, and all-consuming. Sorry, friends. I’ll make it up to you!
I think her friends should write her a thank you note. But that is just me being mean.
While hiking with Kyle, she gave me the extra needed support to call Lisa V.. The first call since the reunion, the reunion where she said she would forgive me. We all just want to get along. So I took a breath and decided to call Lisa V. and just go for it and ask her about coming to my housewarming party. During the call, my cell battery went completely dead, right in the middle of an important part of our conversation. I quickly asked Kyle if I could borrow her phone to call Lisa V. back, because I didn’t want Lisa V. to think I hung up on her. It was not a good time for my phone to die. I knew full well that Kyle’s number would come up, which is irrelevant. I had nothing to hide. There was nothing devious at all. I was trying to make peace. It’s pretty normal to call someone back ASAP after a phone call is disconnected during a tense call. Sorry.
This was just bad all the way around. Until Brandi can sincerely apologize for her behavior from the last season (which will never happen) I don’t see any reason for Lisa V. to forgive much less, move on and go back to BFF again. I am sick of hearing Brandi say, “I am in a good place.” When Brandi is not in a go0d place, it is because of her CHOICES.
Having said that, I take responsibility for my fair part in any fallout with a friend. However, “it takes two.” I want to move forward, and I try, with Adrienne last week, which was successful, and with Lisa V. this week, which was not.
With Adrienne, Brandi actually apologized for what she had said and done. With Lisa, she didn’t. I am still surprised Adrienne was willing to sit across the table from her. But, as I said before, I think it is easier to be Brandi’s “friend” than her enemy.
Let’s sum this up, once and for all and then let it rest. I loved Todd and Lisa V. They were very important to me. Lisa asked me to have a sit down with the woman who was my husband’s mistress for three years, throughout my entire second pregnancy! This woman announced the affair on national TV, not to me, not to confess, not to apologize, but on Access Hollywood, for fame. That’s how I found out my old life had ended. So, with great reluctance for my new “good” friend, Lisa V., I threw myself on my sword and did it. It was hard. It was the first scene on Vanderpump Rules, the crossover. It was a onetime favor. Or it was supposed to be. You’ve all seen Lisa V. throwing that beautiful catered engagement party for that mistress at her house. Treating the mistress like family. It happened a lot. A lot.
Oy vay. Get over yourself.
So, here’s my take or example or whatever: Do you think any of Princess Diana’s really “good” friends ever threw catered engagement parties at their big houses for Camilla Parker-Bowles?
I’m not sure. Maybe if Camilla’s boss was also an acquaintance of Diana’s perhaps it happened. Diana was also not known to be a bitch like Brandi though so there is that, too.
(Veena note: Plus Scheana wasn’t marrying Eddie – that alone makes the comparison wrong to me.)
