Calling this season “difficult” in the wake of Russell Armstrong’s suicide and the constant fighting amongst the ladies, she explains: “You just have to keep plowing ahead.”
“I felt a bit under attack this season with people saying this and saying that,” she admits, speaking to Parade. “I think if you stay true to yourself, people will make up their own minds.” And according to last Monday’s WWHL poll the viewers did make up their minds!
“I don’t really care what others think of me. You’re not going to please everybody,” she adds about the downside of fame. “I care what I think and what my children and my husband thinks. If I’m OK with them, I’m OK with myself. It’s a very good barometer. I just try to be honest.”
“Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth,” Lisa remarks, confronting her issues with co-star Taylor Armstrong. “I’ve had issues with Taylor, like ‘Sorry, Taylor, you’re too thin. You’re not eating.’ It doesn’t matter what way you cut it, does she like it? No, but that’s what we are encouraged to do, to be honest. We’re not going to sit there and say nothing on the show, we’re encouraged to speak our mind and sometimes people don’t like it.”
“I always knew there was volatility in the marriage, I was worried for her,” Lisa clarifies. “I kept saying “Maybe we’re not the closest of friends, however… if you need a place to stay.” And there was certainly no malice to her statements! “I feel very sorry for her – Taylor and her little girl.”
“We’re in a pretty good place right now,” she tells RumorFix about her current relationship with Taylor. Why do I not believe her?! “Things get worse before they get better,” she stresses, explaining that the dynamics of the show are “fascinating.”
Lisa also tackles Kyle Richard’s backstabbing ways this season, saying she found them “hurtful” and she wishes she could have relied on Kyle’s support throughout the season.
Perhaps Lisa is ready to move far, far away from the drama and onto her own show? Rumor has it that’s definitely a possibility! “It has been mentioned, but I can’t talk too much about that right now,” she says of the opportunity to go solo.
“This has been sort of a surprise. I knew what I was getting into, the franchise is so successful. I’ve had a lot of fun with it. I don’t know where it goes from here. It’s just great to be able to get a platform.” Wow – I have a feeling Kyle’s head will explode if Lisa gets her own TV show!
