Last week’s brutal segment of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion left several of the ladies reeling – particularly Lisa Vanderpump, who found herself to be under attack from supposed friend, Adrienne Maloof. After rumors claimed Adrienne had planned on conspiring against Lisa, the ladies spent the better part of the last week pretending that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Taking to her Bravo blog, Lisa claims she is still emotional over her experience at the reunion. Poor Lisa describes the experience as traumatic, stating she is “still at a loss for words,” after watching it again. “It certainly looked the way it felt and I have no words to describe it,” Lisa says.
Lisa is calling the other ladies out for their horrific high school behavior! “We have seen the tea party, seen game night, and I understand that is how these women roll,” she snips. “But it’s not OK to accuse somebody viciously or to sit there silently as you watch a friend who is under attack for hours. That speaks volumes, and I for one don’t want any part of it.” I wonder how Kyle Richards is going to explain her actions on that one!
“I am not going to say anymore,” Lisa writes. “It is what it is, and I will bounce back,” adding that she may have put too much faith in certain people. Lisa admits, “I would question my own judgment.” Ouch!
Adrienne is also speaking out about the reunion and she admits she may have crossed the line, but reminds us she is only human. “Over the last two years, you have seen me in some great moments and in some tough ones. The one thing that has always worked for me is to be straight up,” Adrienne explains in her Bravo blog. “It’s not always an easy choice to just lay things on the line, especially when you’re telling someone you care about that you feel hurt or vulnerable because of their actions.”
“Please remember you only see a fractional portion of our lives and our relationships. There were moments occurring behind the scenes as well that were causing hurt feelings amongst all of the ladies.”
Adrienne explains that she believed the issues between the ladies were not “irrevocable” so she decided confronting them head on would be the best way to find a resolution. Perhaps that’s where the planned attack rumor came from… “I felt that clearing the air was worth it, for all of us. This is an amazing group of women who are far better off enjoying each other’s company than fighting.”
“This was something that I considered to be a minor bump in the road, and I expected we’d move on from all of this once we talked about it,” Adrienne writes. “Ultimately, those who know me also know that resolution was always my goal.”
“What I have taken from all of this is that maybe my approach was too direct in this situation, and in the future there will be times when a softer approach is a better idea,” she admits.
And Adrienne is adamant that she cares about Lisa and hopes to move forward. “I value my friendship with Lisa, and I’m looking forward to moving on in a positive direction with all of my fellow ‘Wives — who I truly think are brilliant, talented, and beautiful.” I”m happy Adrienne so readily admitted she was wrong. Good for her.
Moving right along to media queen Kyle, who scarcely goes a day without talking to the press. Kyle appeared on Geraldo at Large last week with friend Faye Resnick where Geraldo asked her all about her experiences on RHOBH – including her opinion on Russell Armstrong‘s suicide.
Kyle again reiterated that the show is “not scripted” and admits she has misgivings and regrets associated with her decision to appear on reality TV.
Geraldo wondered if the ladies knew how bad Taylor Armstrong‘s marriage was, to which Kyle answered, “Yes.” Kyle explained the ladies pretended not to know and tried to ignore it in front of the cameras fearing how Russell would react if he was aware that Taylor was confiding in her friends about the abuse. Faye explains that Taylor told the ladies “over and over again” about the abuse and even admitted it in the bathroom of a restaurant!
Geraldo also asked if Kyle held Bravo responsible for Russell’s suicide. Kyle believes Russell’s financial issues are the reason he took his life. “No, you know, he was in such deep financial distress,” Kyle said. “Everybody was coming after him, he really got himself into a situation where he couldn’t hide anymore.”
“He owed a lot of money and he was really having a hard time staying afloat,” Kyle added. “Somebody who is abusive, obviously, has issues as it is to begin with.” Faye claims Taylor is still emotionally distraught and feels the loss of Russell “deeply.”
Finally, tonight marks the second episode of the three-part reunion and Brandi Glanville will go head-to-head with Taylor. Brandi
speaking for most of America takes issue with some of Taylor’s behaviors throughout the season and following Russell’s suicide. She also readily admits that she told Lisa the other women talk about her, which leaves Adrienne speechless! A clip is below!
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Part Two airs tonight on Bravo at 9/10c.
