And Vanderfabulous is back with a vengeance! Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Lisa Vanderpump is tired of being accused of being the secret mouthpiece of the 'loids, and can you blame her? If I had to drink every time Kyle Richards insinuated that Lisa's smiling joke delivery was really the most vicious insult ever, I would've passed out before the first episode was even half over!
In her Bravo blog this week, Lisa addresses the tabloid rumors that follow the ladies of Bravo to no end while hinting that she should have been more in tune to how concerned Kyle was about Yolonda Foster's alleged lie. She even manages to get in a few very veiled digs at Splits too, which I absolutely love. Is she throwing shade? It's so subtle I can't tell! Lisa begins with Kyle's Chamber of Commerce party, writing, "Kyle had asked me to cater an event for her. It isn't something we often do — to take our chef away from the restaurant. Transporting the food and staff is just too complicated to ever be worthwhile. While I am there, Kyle brings up the fact that there have been stories created about her being pregnant. I also mentioned that I had seen the articles about Mauricio cheating. I would prefer face-to-face to acknowledge them, and then in the same breath ridicule the constant nonsense that is often in these tabloids.

Of the gossip, Lisa explains, "When we enter this domain, this is the tax we pay. I have endured countless articles and malicious gossip. The previous week I had appeared on the very same magazine cover stating that they had discovered a sex tape!!! As if!!! The only way I have of dealing with and enduring these hurtful, slanderous headlines is to give them as much credence as they deserve — zero — and also reminding myself that the very same paper will be lining the bottom of a parrot's cage tomorrow. We cannot invest emotionally, otherwise it will eat you alive."
Lisa continues, "I had been at an event a couple of days prior and publicly denounced the validity of these rumors regarding Mauricio on the red carpet. I was quoted using the terminology 'utter bullshit.' I had chosen my words carefully as I responded to the inquiring minds, because I was well aware that my reply would be documented everywhere and it was my duty as a friend to defend them."
Moving on to whether YoFo is a big fat liar (don't believe it for a second!), Lisa reveals, "There was still the issue of Yolanda that was unresolved. I was adamant that Yolanda would never say derogatory things about me. I remained steadfast in my resolve to defend her, however I explained to Kyle that if I was prepared to ignore it, why couldn't she? Kyle felt it was a matter of principle that she knew Yolanda was guilty, she was a liar, and was hurt that I wouldn't believe her," cryptically adding, "Hindsight is twenty twenty. I was warned and chose to ignore it, this is how the story begins…"
Discussing the newbies, Lisa concludes, "At the party, we were introduced to the two new girls, Joyce [Giraud] and Carlton [Gebbia]. Carlton seemed to take offense at the fact that Kyle was poking fun at me, highlighting the supposed naked scene. She felt it was disparaging, belittling to people she had only just met, when I wasn't there to defend myself. When I witnessed it, I understood her sentiment, but as I have stated previously, the only way for me to navigate this rocky terrain is with humor when it comes to these ridiculous tabloids. If Kyle wanted to poke fun and draw attention to something that some might find embarrassing, I have no problem with it whatsoever, but I liked the fact that this quirky Brit was voicing an opinion. So thank you for watching! Until next week!"
Good gracious! Lisa makes passive aggressiveness a very beautiful and eloquent art form, don't you think? Bloody brilliant!
