Yolanda Foster hasn’t been able to blog much throughout season five of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills due to her struggle with Lyme disease, but she managed to write a doozy of a blog following part one of the reunion. The blog is more about Lyme disease, which she compared to the AIDS epidemic, than the reunion, however. Yolanda also told us a little story about another infection she is battling due to letting a baby cow suck on her chin.
Yolanda explained why she felt it was necessary to attend the RHOBH reunion despite her setback with Lyme disease, “I know the reunion is an important end to the season, so I felt the need to pull up my bootstraps and show up, no matter what. In my mind, keeping my commitment to Bravo and Evolution was very important, even though my body wasn’t ready to get dressed and all dolled up after living in my robe and pajamas for the past four months.”
I don’t want to sound like I’m bullying Brandi, but here’s the thing: if she would just own maybe a smidgen of her behavior or actions (and apologize without conditions) I think it would go a long way in everyone believing that she has a good heart, is good a mother, and is a person who at least on occasion behaves like an adult. Instead Brandi resorts to accusing Lisa Vanderpump(who can’t even be bothered to put out for Ken more than twice a year) of being desperate for the 23-year-old manwand of her son’s childhood bestie. This is because LVP called Brandi out for being too drunk too f–k her Amsterdam-ian fling (according to Andre, who unfortunately was not Skyped during the reunion!)
Lisa Rinna is having trouble getting the hang of this whole reality star thing – most notably the black hole of twitter and how nothing is ever truly erased from twitter! After tweeting (and deleting) a diatribe accusing Kim Richards of being “too inebriated” to write her Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills blog, Lisa took heat from viewers. Defending herself, Lisa admitted it was a mistake to tweet (and delete) but haven’t we all done it? She also said it was all worth it to help Kim, but Brandi Glanville is still shouting ‘hypocrisy’ from the rooftops of her Valley rental!
Lisa asked, “Raise your hand if you’ve tweeted and deleted. Come on be honest.” Then she wondered, “Raise your hand if you’ve tweeted buzzed or drunk. Raise your hand if you have tweeted the word that rhymes with Runt. Raise your hand if you’ve tweeted something nasty about anyone. I bet even @oprah has tweeted and deleted!!!” Lisa also thinks both the Pope and Obama have had a tweet/delete moment.
Lisa and husband Harry Hamlin grabbed their girls, Delilah and Amelia, and headed off for a getaway to Mexico. Lisa and Harry’s trip was actually to celebrate their 18th wedding anniversary, which is on Sunday, so it was perfect timing. Lisa and Harry were photographed at Zoëtry Paraiso de la Bonita Riviera Maya (jealous!) with their girls – enjoying walks on the beach and even catamaran sails together. And Lisa showed off her bangin’ bikini body poolside, too.
TELL US – SHOULD BRAVO PAY FOR ‘DE-STRESSING’ VACATIONS AFTER THE REUNION TAPINGS? WE KID!
“I think it’s great that Bethenny came back,” the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star explained on WWHL’s After Show. “It’s hard when you keep changing the recipe, and I’m curious – I wanna know what everyone’s doing from when I started to watch the show.”
About season five, Lisa shared, “And there we have it. So this season I felt was a little more illustrative of exactly who these complex characters are. Some weathered the storm with a modicum of regretful actions and others offered up a complete view into the depths of their inner being. Angry accusations, shrouded with deflection, were the actions of some incompetent of dealing with truths that should be confronted.”
Hey y’all – wanna talk about “semantics” with Brandi Glanville? She probably can’t define that word, but I bet the ghostwriter who allegedly writes her blogs can! Now that Brandi can no longer blame Lisa Vanderpump for everything that’s wrong in her life, she’s switched her vitriolic focus to Lisa Rinna and it’s all because Brandi believes Lisa intentionally tried to sabotage her friendship with Kim Richards by claiming Brandi said Kim needed an intervention.
Now all of us who watch Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills know what happened in that fateful conversation between Brandi and Lisa: Brandi both heavily implied and directly stated Kim was not OK and needed help. Brandi again reiterated those statements to her sober coach friend, Jen. There were also comments about pain patches and nebulous statements about what Kim is “doing.”
Lisa interpreted that to mean Kim needed their help, and Brandi wanted her assistance in providing that help. Sure the word “intervention” was never explicitly said by Brandi (this is the semantics part she fails to grasp), but when Lipsa said, “Not like an intervention?” Brandi didn’t reply, “Oh no Kim doesn’t need that! She just needs friends inviting her out to the movies and doing other sober fun things to get her out of the house and feeling more positive!” No, Brandi said, “Maybe you should do an intervention with all of us.” At worst, Lipsa is guilty of misinterpretation and getting overly involved.
Lisa Rinna took to her blog to share her thoughts on the season finale of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I, for one, am sad the season is over, save for the three-part reunion, because Beverly Hills has always been my favorite Real Housewives show. But seriously – this cannot be said enough – I hope and pray Andy Cohen takes out the trash before next season.
Reflecting on the season/experience as a whole, Lisa shared, “We managed to get through Season 5 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills without anyone going to prison! It got close at times, but thankfully, we did it. I went into this promising myself I would tell the truth, own my sh–, and always, ALWAYS come from a place of authenticity. Much like everyone else, I am human, and I make mistakes. Sometimes, I act on emotion before really allowing myself time to process, and that can lead me to say or do things that I’m not always proud of. But I make sure to own what I say and do, learn from the mistake, and hopefully grow into a better person because of it.”
