On this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Eileen Davidson felt like Lisa Vanderpump put her in the hot seat. Lisa engaged Eileen in an uncomfortable conversation about how she met and got together with her husband, Vince. In this week’s blog Eileen dishes on her two very weird sit downs with LVP.
Eileen kicks off her blog, “What is this, a dinner party or the Spanish Inquisition? I don’t think I’ve shied away from discussing the details of how Vincent and I met (remember that time when Brandi threw wine in my face?), despite the fact that it really is nobody’s business. Oh and by the way, everyone has moved on! Well, almost everyone…If a friend wants to “get to know” me, I’m happy to answer anything. Lisa V.’s questions seemed far from friendly, but OK.”
Eileen explains that it was so out of the blue and that’s what has her baffled. “It wasn’t just her line of questioning. And I wasn’t just uncomfortable; I was in shock. I felt like she blindsided me, purposely tried to provoke me. It made no sense. Unless it was some kind of passive-aggressive payback for leaving the hotel? That would be silly. Besides, I had explained why we left and apologized profusely. What am I missing?”
She realized after her talk with Lisa Rinna that she needed to talk this out with Lisa Vanderpump and clear the air. “I’m going in expecting an apology, something along the lines of, “Oh Darling, I’m so sorry! That was never my intention. Hugs and kisses,” and then we would ride off into the sunset. Not even close. Strangely enough the whole thing got turned back on me!”
Eileen continues, “When I told her how I felt, her answer to me was, “We were alone.” We were not “alone.” First of all, we were sitting at a large table with approximately 30 people, most of them strangers, all in earshot of our conversation. Second, Lisa V. is a very intelligent and worldly woman who has been doing reality TV for six years. It’s not only ludicrous, but highly insulting to me to play the “alone” card. This isn’t The Truman Show. Right? No, but seriously. Lisa V. knows this. She chose to refer to my relationship with my husband of 13 years, the father to my children, as “the affair.” It’s a cheap shot. And she chose the time, and place, and the manner of it. I’d never do that to friend, and I thought that Lisa V. and I were friends. I expected more from her. I’m a real person. With real feelings. And a real family.”
She doesn’t think Lisa V feels like she did anything rude, “I just wanted her to know that she was perhaps being a bit disrespectful, and she ended up being more disrespectful. I felt like she was very dismissive of my genuine feelings. I don’t think she really heard me or thinks she did or said anything wrong. If I did that to a friend, I’d want to know. And I’d apologize, even if insulting them was not my intent.”
Eileen thinks something is wonky in the Hamptons, “All I can say is there must be something in the Hamptons water, because seeing Erika in the limo with Lisa V. on the way over, it looks like she’s being grilled as much as I was! Erika even says she thinks Lisa V. “enjoys making people uncomfortable.” Doesn’t sound very friend-like, huh?”
