Lisa Vanderpump is tired of lies and nonsense on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, but she is most tired of those who act like the cameras shouldn’t capture behaviors they don’t like and their co-stars shouldn’t have an opinion on those behaviors. Reflecting on the denial and deflection of certain co-stars, Lisa is fed up – especially as her husband Ken Todd recovers from surgery for a second hip replacement! What is Ken doing with those hips – something must happen more than twice a year Miss. Lisa! 😉
As Lisa points out, the premise of a reality show is to let the public (and the other cast members) into your life, so if you have something to hide or don’t want others involved you should probably eschew the public eye. Ahem, Kim Richards!!

Reminding viewers moments “you would never in a million years dream would be aired” are included in the show beyond the star’s control, some of those moments – for instance her “good-natured banter” with Kyle Richards in the dressing room at the RHOBH reunion – are filled with laughter and fun, while others like Kim’s behavior in the limo with Lisa Rinna, are more unsightly moments that one might prefer keeping hidden. Lisa cautions that people who agree to participate in reality TV should be expect “all aspects” of their lives to emerge and “learn from the consequences.”
“Be prepared to expose yourself and deal accordingly, and that is what Kim doesn’t seem to understand,” Lisa articulates. “She keeps reiterating, ‘Keep my name out of your mouth.’ ‘Don’t talk about me.’ Well if you appear, and your demeanor and your actions are questionable, be prepared to answer those questions. I believe that is the basic premise of a show such as this.”
Pre-Housewives Kim was able to keep much of her private life secret thanks to a support system. “Kyle has covered many a track for years, but in this forum, it is highly impossible to keep anything hidden,” Lisa reveals. “So be sure to live your life transparently, be sure to have a solid foundation before you challenge somebody, and above all, have a modicum of accountability for your actions and beware when cameras are rolling–they are your witness. So as we endeavour to sort out this multi faceted situation, there is more to come.”
Unfortunately for some people – Kim and Brandi Glanville – basic human decency eludes them. “Taking responsibility is the one thing that evades both Kim and BG,” comments Lisa. “Deflection, denial, anger are traits they have in common.”
Lisa reminds: “Understand this–just saying sorry doesn’t alter or change the facts. It might lead one to believe that they are alleviated from responsibility, or, as they both do, continually deflect so as to shift the focus of the matter at hand.”
Fortunately, for many of those moments when a person like Kim or Brandi may skew the truth, cameras are rolling, but alas somethings veracity is impossible to find. “Lisa [Rinna] was vindicated by the segment that was shown. It was BG who brought up Kim as Lisa was challenging BG on her behaviour (again the master manipulator being exposed),” LVP reminds. “The same for Kyle–it was her account that was accurate at the poker night. She went to the bathroom and Kim followed, of her own volition, as the documentation that this show provides proves.”
“Unfortunately when things are off camera, like magazine gate last year,” Lisa declares, “we are forced to rely on these inaccurate accounts from these unreliable witnesses, so there you have it…”
Lisa also touches on Kim’s assignations about Harry’s character and says it absolutely ludicrous. “The whole ridiculous intimation by Kim that Harry was guilty of something insidious was infuriating to me. That is why I urged Lisa to challenge her.”
“I knew the intimation was unfounded and baseless, and if she didn’t confront it, it would linger like a bad odor, so when push came to shove, there was nothing,” states Lisa. “Again, case in point, all will become exposed eventually. Who lies, who hurls hollow accusations with nothing to substantiate them ends up looking foolish.”
The same can be said of Kim’s deluded defense of her sobriety. “Some have asked what I was going to say to Kim, before Andy shut me up. I was going to ask her why in Paris she stated I was contesting her sobriety and was so angry when I gently asked if she took a sleeping pill…to explain her bizarre behavior,” Lisa adds in her Bravo blog.
Finally, while vindication has been had by some, overall Lisa is saddened by what transpired between Kim and Kyle and how their relationship has been savaged by recent events and interlopers. And next week the questionable motives become all too transparent.
“Relationships with friends old and new can never be as complex as those of siblings. The deep rooted history that spills over into every conversation between the two sisters is sometimes hard to comprehend,” Lisa writes. “As we close on this penultimate episode, I assure you there are new revelations. The interference from a third party, with an intent to undermine one of the sisters, becomes evident next week as you will see.”
TELL US – WHAT DO YOU THINK OF LISA’S SENTIMENTS? IS SHE RIGHT THAT KYLE AND LISA R HAVE BEEN VINDICATED, WHILE KIM AND BRANDI REFUSE TO OWN THE TRUTH?
