I have to say that Carlton Gebbia's Bravo blog is the perfect storm of everything the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star likes to do:
down tequila shots, hate on Kyle Richards, make digs at Joyce Giraud, and forge a better friendship with Lisa Vanderpump. I'm not always in Carlton's corner, but I do adore her take on Monday's episode. Besides calling out Mauricio Umansky and Michael Giraud for wanting to be the eighth and ninth housewives (preach!), she seems to have an even-keeled about her opinions…except when it comes to hating on Kyle, and that's pretty entertaining.
She begins, "Back to Puerto Rico…Kyle seems so hell bent on an apology from Lisa – for what? Is she seriously demanding this huge, blown-out-of-proportion apology from Lisa for allegedly saying 'take the tabloid' regarding Kyle's husbands alleged affair? Really, are you joking? Did you also demand that same apology from Brandi [Glanville] too? Just curious? Good God, give it a bloody rest."

Of tabloid-gate, Carlton writes, "I was at Brandi's house on the day that Lisa and I drove down to Palm Desert together, and I was waiting outside with Yolanda [Foster] and Brandi. Lisa was late, but when she arrived she came up and told Brandi to say goodbye to her dogs because Brandi was mad at them and literally was in and out in seconds. Never did I see a magazine. Then we left. Lisa and I drove together for two hours down to Palm Desert, never discussing the tabloid drama. With all due respect to Brandi, never did I see or hear about a tabloid from Lisa that day at her house. I honestly don't know what else to say. For this stupid crap to end beautiful friendships is beyond ridiculous."
Taking a second to bash on Joyce, Carlton states, "As far as Joyce saying that Lisa 'looked childish and guilty' and that she should had stayed after Lisa left that night, she's absolutely delusional! Would she have stayed, since she's such an advocate against bullying? I think not. And in that vein, where was she in speaking up on Lisa's behalf at that awful dinner and saying that it was enough when Lisa was outnumbered? Lisa owed you nothing. Let's be honest it was never your trip."
After a hilarious diatribe about Mauricio's whining, Carlton remarks, "Wow, so Kyle thinks by Lisa and Ken leaving that it confirms her pathetic attack. You should be ashamed! Who on earth would want you as a friend when you are so quick to orchestrate an attack, then act so shocked by their departure?"
Continuing, Carlton admits, "Kim [Richards]…It makes me so sad, because I do like her. But to watch her say those things about both Ken and Lisa is difficult for me to hear. I obviously don't know their personal history, but I know her grievances could have been handled much better," adding, "Sorry but this was truly a sad moment for me…Lisa had called me from Puerto Rico devastated. I saw her when she got back but what is obviously seen and subsequently told by Lisa is awful. There is nothing else I can add to that. She was distraught and shaken and truly never saw this coming. I cynically think its interesting that I was uninvited, maybe a ploy. Sharks in a bloodied waters, It made my heart hurt for her."
She blogs,"Kyle says we are all invited to the 100 years of the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce event — not Kyle's event, but of course Lisa didn't want to go. Understandably. But no matter what, she should be proud that she is a successful Beverly Hills business owner. I have heard the term 'girls' girls,' but I've not yet experienced it in this group. My own friends absof–kinglutely are there for one another, good times or bad. But not yet with these girls. If I was pissed off at my friend and this happened, I'd confront her, but by no means would I ever instigate an attack on her. That's not girls supporting girls — not in my world."
While there is clearly a lot of animosity, Carlton did feel for her co-stars as they sent their daughters of to college. She reveals, "As I've said before, my heart go out to Yolanda and Kim for their baby girls going off to college. So bloody emotional. Can't even imagine! But like Yolanda, I would so set my girls up in a place I'd envision for myself. I know too much. I also remember when my babes got their ears pierced on Valentine's Day with my mother (in-law). So cute. Ah, but Kyle's babes did look beautiful with pierced ears. I remember doing mine with ice cubes. Soooo not fun."
Carlton concludes, "At the end of the day, all I truly know and can count on is my amazing gorgeous husband and my three incredible magical children, plus our furballs. That's all that matters to me emotionally and spiritually when I close my eyes and go to sleep. Blessed be gorgeous souls."
