The women were complaining about Lisa Vanderpump’s inability to open up and share her feelings an awful lot during the most recent season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Well, maybe Lisa was just looking for a more receptive audience before she could feel comfortable sharing her emotions.
And there is no more receptive audience than Lisa’s beloved children Pandora Vanderpump and Max Todd. Most moms let their kids do all the praising for Mother’s Day, but LVP is not like most other mothers. She likes to do things her own way. The RHOBH star took time to reflect on raising her son and daughter in an open letter that appeared in Time.
On twitter many frustrated viewers challenged Andy for allowing Brandi Glanville to make a pre-recorded video message bashing the ladies and for what they saw as him “attacking” LVP while allowing others (Yolanda) to get a pass. Andy also denies that the incessant focus on Yolanda Foster‘s ‘journey’ caused ratings to decline.
Andy insists, that despite it all, his relationship to Lisa is fine. And he was in no way attacking one of his most profitable popular Housewives!
Kathryn found the reactions to Lisa‘s emotion to be odd, “When Lisa V shared her story about being abused by a former boyfriend years ago, she teared up and became vulnerable. It felt like a cathartic moment, and it seemed as if some of the other women didn’t think she had these types of emotions. That was strange to me for several reasons and strengthened my feelings that it is more of a cultural thing.”
Whether you are a Brandi fan or not, you have to admit that she’s never boring. If you are an avid Real Housewives viewer, it is definitely worth following her, especially after the final reunion episode aired. Brandi seriously went off. She tweeted Lisa Vanderpump‘s story about domestic violence, questioned LVP’s friendship with Kyle Richards, and refused to issue any apologies.

I was always surprised Joyce was fired after one season. I loved that she wasn’t afraid to speak her mind, even against unpopular opinion, and I see that hasn’t changed. Reacting to the reunion on Twitter, Joyce defended Lisa against the manipulation accusations and is annoyed that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has become “the Munchausen show.”
“It was just such an awful season,” said Lisa. “I felt like I was under attack.”
So who has Lisa labeled as the culprit for stealing her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills joy? Why that would be…Lipsa! “She might as well have hit me with a baseball bat on the head,” laughed Lisa, of the damage done.
To be honest with you, this really was the worst season of RHOBH due to this one constantly repeated story line. Nevertheless, it did bring some bits of side drama and good amount of it involved Lisa in some shape or form. Well, Lisa is “owning” all of her actions this season and issuing apologies. This is a lot more than most of the other women from Real Housewives could ever manage to muster. Lisa “owned” up to everything in her Bravo blog reacting to the final reunion episode.
The final part of the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion was all about owning the undefinable IT – what that “IT” is, we’re not sure. Lisa Vanderpump was owning no part in offending anyone, or the chicanery behind manipulating others into questioning Yolanda Foster‘s Lyme Disease. Other than Kyle Richards, the only person Lisa deemed worthy was Ken, who, despite pissing all the women off, made no appearance last night. Ken was too busy relaxing in the Villa Rosa gardens amid the splendor of mini horses and Pomeranians. Or, who knows, maybe he was doing gourmet Jello Shots with Mohamed and David! #LifeWithoutLyme
We begin with Lisa explaining why she didn’t open up about her past abuse when Eileen Davidson shared hers. Lisa didn’t feel comfortable sharing in front of Ken. Which seems to be a problem; since season 3 Ken has made a habit of attending events with Lisa, acting as a guard dog between her and the other women. It’s a bit silly, and, as Eileen tried to point out (in between Yolanda constantly interrupting), this wall Lisa has up – physically and metaphorically – prevents her from bonding and forming true friendships with the women.
