All Joyce Giraud wanted to do was bond with friends and see her family while mourning the recent loss of her father. Poor thing should've known better! After all hell breaks loose on the everyone versus Lisa front, Kyle is left confused by Brandi's story and Lisa's staunch denial. Y'all know I'm a Lisa fan through and through, but do I think she tried to get Brandi to bring those rag mags to the ladies' vacay? Of course I do. Was it catty? Sure, but that's how these women operate. That said, do I think that the Kyle/Brandi/Yo trio handled themselves like some sixth grade mean girls? Yup. I, for once, agree with Kyle (do I have a fever?)–had Lisa just played it off and admitted her part in a tasteless joke, the whole trip would have played out much differently.
"First, I have to give you the history of this contentious subject regarding Scheana. So two years ago, at the opening of SUR Lounge, Brandi was there. I knew her a little from her being involved in the show. I was wary of her as she said she was a friend of Cedric [Martinez]'s. We discovered later that was not true, but really, apart from that, had very little knowledge of her and her ex-husband."
"The group of staff who wanted to be in the pilot that is now Vanderpump Ruleshad already been assembled and were working that night of the finale party," Lisa recalls. "They were not mic-ed as they had no connection to that event. But I had to have servers and it seemed logical to put people in who were going to be comfortable in that situation."
I don't know what to think. Is this a 4-way gang up on Lisa Vanderpump? Or is this Brandi Glanville and Yolanda Fosterwere once on a Dream Team with Lisa and for some odd reason decided to split and take Lisa down by pulling others into the middle?
Meaning, that yes – Lisa was part of "tabloids-in-the-suitcase-gate" which is the new necklace-gate, which is the new-skipped-my-party-gate, which is the new stop-being-my-mama-gate which is the new ewww-get-my-husband's-mistress-out-my-plastic-face-gate, which is the new hair-flip-your-friends-talk-ish-about-you-gate, which is the new don't-talk-about-my-husband's-ALLEGED-cheating-gate. Basically we've come full circle and we're back to talking about Kyle Richardsand Mauricio's cheating, which NO ONE – I repeat NO ONE – cared about in the first place except Kyle who probably planted the stories to begin with!
Yolanda Foster does not like when people misbehave – especially at her own events!
On last week's episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills the ladies celebrated Gigi's going away party as she prepared to move to NYC for college. And they also celebrated a takedown of Lisa Vanderpump and some nonsense over a truly ugly necklace that instead of being thrown away was being tortured and preserved forever. Ugh.
In her Bravo blog, Yolanda discusses her frustrations with the ladies bringing drama to Gigi's party but is pleasantly surprised it didn't get too out of hand.
Let me start by giving her a little credit – this is not a flattering picture, trust me that Brandi was looking good on the show last night. Her hair is a softer blonde now and that "filler puff" is going away a little more each time we see her. The photo angle is bad, but her outfit was cuter than it looks here and the color was good on her.
Ross starts off with: "Your ex-husband is suing you for…"
Ross: "Child support? So, you marry a big TV star and you give up your modeling career." As Ross says "big TV star" Brandi makes a face and sort of shakes her head "no" at that part and he asks about it. She says "then why does he want MY money?"
Of course, Joyce is also giving us her take on Monday's episode. She begins her Bravo blog, "I want to thank you all for the cyber friendship and the support you've given me through this journey called Housewives. I also want to take advantage of this platform to answer something lots of you have been asking. For those who've asked me on social media how I feel about the fact that Brandi uses every chance she can to try to disrespect me, all I can say is that she is a classless person who thinks everything she says is OK and funny. Apparently she has no friends to tell her that making racial remarks, backstabbing all her fellow Housewives, making horrible remarks about other women (Joanna Krupa and Kenya Moore), and talking crap in all the interviews that are meant to be about her book are not OK…Sorry Brandi! Your card is overplayed and you have zero comedic timing! You are not funny and since I learned to take things from the source…Knock yourself out and keep proving me right."
Poor Lisa Vanderpump just can't do anything right. But she's also the most powerful and smartest woman in all the world – according to her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast mates. With those credentials you wonder why they'd bother effing with her, but I guess it's the price you pay for reality TV fame!
In Lisa'sbravo blog she discusses necklace drama and her relationships with former friends turned co-workers from hell.
"I am of course extremely upset when I see, for example, Brandi bringing up the subject of Cedric [Martinez]. All of you who have followed the story from the beginning will understand Cedric was a precarious subject and one that out of loyalty to Brandi I would never have raised. But now she is saying I had Cedric deported."
