In her recent Bravo blogLisa Vanderpumpexplains what motivated her to leave Puerto Rico in the middle of the night (in addition to the onslaught from her castmates they left because Ken was having health problems) and she is saddened that none of her supposed friends reached out to her.
"I was deeply hurt and had not heard from any of them, which was fascinating by virtue of the fact that this was just an accusation, hurled by someone who had a penchant for vindictive, defamatory statements," Lisa wrote alluding to Brandi Glanville and the tabloid accusation.
Joyce Giraud is switching teams on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after watching the episodes for herself. Joyce took to her blog to chat about the unfairness of things and to apologize for being MIA while she dealt with her family's loss.
Joyce shared how her eyes were opened after watching this week's show, "Both my husband and I felt horrible when we watched this week's episode because we didn't know Lisa and Ken had already given an answer on the beach regarding Brandi's accusations about the tabloids. Back then, I thought Lisa should at least give an answer. Personally I've always thought it's best to address problems instead of walking away. This is something I spoke about with Lisa when we got back to LA."
In her Bravo blog, Lisa begins, "As we conclude this fiasco of a vacation (I use that word loosely), it brings it all back…I understand Joyce and Michael's comment saying that we should have answered. But, as Joyce now says when she sees the footage since she wasn't there, I answered on the beach–and that for most people would've been enough. So when I witness Yolanda stating I left because I didn't want to have that conversation…she was right. I knew what they were looking for. They were looking for blood. It is quite fascinating to see the two-faced conversations, full of animosity from people I believed to be friends, that led up to this. I hope they are proud of themselves and what they see. I wouldn't be–that's a certainty."
Last night the ladies of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ousted Lisa Vanderpump from Puerto Rico and bonded over how awesome it is to have the reigning queen off the island. Temporarily they're all getting along until the jockeying for position resumes anew. I think it's safe to say Kim Richards is out of the running.
In Puerto Rico all the ladies meet for breakfast where Joyce Giraudhas dressed in what is in her approximation casual pageant gear. Aka, a maxi dress with sparkles and spangles that weigh more than she does.
Four select ladies from various Real Housewives franchises banded together to film a bit for the upcoming Bravo Upfronts. The Upfronts is when Bravo dangles its most popular shows to hype the upcoming seasons. Not being seen at the Upfronts probably means you won't be seen on TV. Unless of course you're select members of Real Housewives of New York. Case in point: Sonja Morgan.
During last year's Upfronts Sonja was in a contract dispute with the network and was a no show – mainly because she was rumored to be uninvited!
Well now Lisa Vanderpump wants to get in on the fun! Following last week's Scary Island 2.0 adventure in Puerto Rico where the ladies cornered Lisa at the beach, she's been retweeting and tweeting all about being victim numero uno (I hope Brandi's OK with my using a bit of Spanish there!).
Do reality stars ever just fade off into obscurity or is it in their DNA to keep looking for the next show? I don't think I have a thick enough skin for a reality career, and after being embarrassed by my behavior on national television, I think the last thing I'd want to do was to find another way to look like an idiot in front of millions.
However, there is a reason I'm not a reality star, and there's a reason why they are so entertaining. No matter what, they don't give up on jumping from show to show, network to network to extend their already too long fifteen minutes of fame. It's now time for Cynthia Bailey's husband Peter Thomas to find the next big deal to keep him on our small screens. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is hoping to channel his inner Lisa Vanderpump!
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
