“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.”
Eileen Davidson was initiated into the cult of Housewives and found the hazing worse than what she’s had to endure on Days Of Our Lives. It turns out some people – ahem Brandi Glanville – take their fangirl stalker status a lot too far – or maybe they’re just hella passive aggressive. Eileen can’t decide.
“I think you can tell I didn’t know how to handle it when it happened. First of all, I didn’t hear Brandi say she was going to throw the wine in my face, so it came as a complete surprise. But even if I had heard, I’m sure I wouldn’t have believed she’d actually do it,” the new Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star admits.
Eileen is candid that she cried in reaction. “I laughed at first, and then I teared up. OK, I cried.” She explains, “It was so bizarre and felt like such an attack coming from a woman (not a little girl, BTW who needs a timeout, a spanking, or whatever) that I barely knew. And then I was left to wonder, to what end? I seem to ask myself that question a lot where Brandi’s concerned.”
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.
Brandi Glanville is losing all of her friends – except for the one who compared her to a dog! And even though Yolanda Foster made such an unsightly comparison Brandi realizes it’s better to at least one ally than none allies, so she’s brushing her fellow Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star’s comment off!
“I am not upset at all & I understand @YolandaHFoster more then most people so I take this as a compliment,” Brandi tweeted, sharing a photo of her and Yolanda together. Albeit a photo from a magazine, because as you know these two don’t interact outside of the Bravo confines!
Brandi Glanville is giving me some major “Single White Female” vibes in that picture. I fear for Lisa Vanderpump‘s swans. <Swan Boiler Brandi> I see scary stalker, but Brandi called it “uncomfortable” and “nervous” in her latest Real Housewives of Beverly Hills blog. And when she’s nervous, she says stupid things. So Brandi’s disgusting mouth is not Brandi’s fault. It’s Lisa‘s for looking at her and making her feel nervous. <eye roll>
About her housewarming party, Brandi said, “I’m so excited to be in our new home after stressfully floating around for the entire summer. I love this house. It’s got a warm happy feel to it. I decided to throw a proper party to celebrate our happy new home. My parents are coming and a few friends. I invited all the ladies, of course, because I didn’t want to leave anyone out. Everybody but Lisa V and Ken RSVP’d. She told me several times she wouldn’t be coming, so as far as I was concerned, she was not coming, but the show and the party must go on!”
The winners of Reality Tea‘s first annual Readers’ Choice Awards were announced throughout the day Friday. There were a few surprises!
I, for one, was shocked to see Teresa Giudice win favorite Real Housewives of New Jersey star and Jill Zarin win former Real Housewives star you wish would return. I was pleasantly surprised, however, to learn Caroline Stanbury beat out Jim Marchese as the breakout reality TV star of 2014.
