“The lunch with Lisa Vanderpump finally happened. Whether the relationship can be repaired, well, you’ll have to tune in and watch, but I’m hopeful,” Brandi shared. “I won’t make excuses for the wine toss. I shouldn’t have done it, but it was a misunderstood moment that has passed. Eileen was sweet to accept my apology, and no, I really wasn’t buzzed, so I can’t “blame it on alcohol” like Jamie Foxx says.”
First of all, Kyle Richards‘ feelings of sadness when her children leave home are greater than the rest of ours because as Kyle told us 456,000 she never went to college – and she could have been a lawyer, you know, if she wasn’t a child star! Kyle should just go now – it’s not like she’d have to get student loans. Which she wouldn’t get anyway because Chanel doesn’t sell them.
Sometimes when I write these recaps I wish I had more time to ponder the happenings. I get myopic vision and tunnel in on certain ideas, then I read or see something else and it’s like: aha! How did I miss that? But alas, the world of blogging moves swiftly and there is no time for deep consideration about reality TV.
“Let’s start with Brandi and Lisa Vanderpump’s lunch, so we can get that out of the way and attempt to move forward,” blogged Lisa. “Since I’m not entirely familiar with the back story, there really isn’t too much for me to comment on with this. Both Brandi and Lisa have apologized to one another, and Lisa made it very clear that she can’t be the friend Brandi wants her to be.”
The addition of Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson was enough to make this three plus decades Days of Our Lives fanatic over the moon (I was watching in the womb…I’m not really that old 😉 ), but I didn’t realize I’d adore them on the show as much as I do. They are both such class acts, and I have to say, I wish Eileen had channeled her inner Kristen DiMera when Brandi’s chardonnay hit her square in the face. She, my friends, is a class act. Not surprisingly, Lisa agrees with me.
Addressing the situation with Brandi in her Bravo blog, Lisa begins, “Hello to all of you. As I sit here with a bit of a cold, I am trying to make sense of this complicated situation. Here goes…So we open with the decision made that I would meet, much to my husband’s chagrin, Brandi for lunch. Ken is fiercely loyal, and as you saw in the flashbacks, he went out of his way, almost to his own detriment, to defend Brandi. He felt strongly that after last season she would no longer be in that position again. I believe what hurt him the most was when Yolanda [Foster] intimated he abused her, which the footage shows he clearly doesn’t. He wouldn’t, and he is a protector of women, so when Brandi tweeted, ‘A man should never put his hands on a woman’ (all in the master plan attempting to discredit him),he was extremely hurt and disappointed. Little incidents like these, including bankruptcy allegations, accumulated in his mind apart from all the footage we had seen, and I think, unfortunately for him, it is just too big to forget.”
What can be said about last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. Don’t get me wrong – I’ll say plenty – but did that actually happen? Did an Emmy-award winning actress really get a glass of backwashed wine thrown in her face by a desperate divorcee on a 10-year drunken meltdown? The answer to that question is unfortunately, yes.
Other things happened leading up to the white wine wash – it started with the last glamorous, happy, successful woman Brandi Glanville insulted on every level – Lisa Vanderpump. Brandi looked nice at that lunch, as if she played Invasion of the Body Snatchers with Yolanda Foster.
