Lisa Vanderpump Defends Dorit Kemsley’s Character; Says She Is “Kind” And “Lovely” And Not As Polarizing As Portrayed

Lisa Vanderpump - WWHL

In her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills blog this week, Lisa Vanderpump shares her thoughts on the “miscommunication” between Lisa Rinna and PK and Dorit Kemsley during the conversation about the deaths of Lisa Rinna‘s father and Eileen Davidson‘s mother last season.

Lisa also defends her friend Dorit and bemoans the fact that she’s in the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills “hot seat” so far this season.

Lisa points out that “wine obviously flowed copiously” at PK and Dorit‘s dinner party. “So one might be forgiven if an accurate memory of what had transpired in conversation might be a little hazy so to speak. When we flash back, it compounds the fact that Dorit was inaccurate of her recollection. The subject of Eileen‘s name and mother, of course, was raised, however there were wires that were crossed.”


Lisa acknowledges that PK and Dorit were wrong about last season’s timeline.

Lisa Rinna was trying to convey that the sad passing of their parents had little to do with the convoluted scenario that had played out between us all last year at the reunion. Eileen‘s mother had unfortunately died a few days prior to the reunion, unbeknownst to us. I see PK and Dorit interpreting the conversation differently. They construed that Eileen’s mother passed previously, prior to the whole situation many months before and that had changed her demeanor through last summer, and if we were friends, she should have conveyed that to me. I see their point, them believing that for Eileen to be immersed in her grief might have been responsible for the negative interactions between us. Not so… their parents passed after the disastrous trip to Dubai and that is why LR was speaking of the reunion.”

About Kyle Richards‘ little jab about Lisa carrying on like she hasn’t had any work done to her face, Lisa blogs, “I am totally transparent: laser treatments minimally, as I can’t afford the downtime, and a little filler with Botox are my best friends. And also, best friends don’t feel the need to point that out.”

Lisa wishes she had been at Camille Grammer‘s luncheon so she could have cleared up the aforementioned misunderstanding about last season’s timeline.

“The tension between Erika and Dorit is palpable,” says Lisa, adding that the after effects of “knickergate” didn’t help matters. “Dorit kindly remarks to Erika that she is still a young woman, but the interaction between them seems as cool as the chilled wine they were drinking. She then tries to soften the conversation with the remark of being in her 40s, but once again is shot down.”

About the focus on Dorit so far this season, Lisa bemoans, “It is all so precarious, and I wasn’t there to witness many of these interactions, so the hot seat has been graciously relinquished this season to my friend Dorit. Dorit is a kind, lovely young woman, but a formidable opponent, make no doubt. I feel secure in the fact that as weeks pass you’ll have a better understanding of who she is rather than the polarizing portrayal so far.”
