Queen Lisa Vanderpump only reigned over half an episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” this week. She  took part in the first half of the festivities, then took off on vacation and missed the main dramatic event, a poker party gone wrong at Eileen Davidson’s house. Her outsider perspective on the episode that went down is unique, and she opened up and shared her thoughts in her Bravo blog. She explained that the spa day was pleasant, other than Brandi’s usual atmosphere killing blather.

“The car ride to the spa where we are all confined was a different matter. There we have it: the need to shock once more in Brandi‘s graphic detail of her fantasy. I don’t find anything she says remotely amusing, stimulating, or even vaguely interesting, just always provocative, trying to elicit a reaction.”

Lisa doesn’t believe that Kyle had intention to tempt Kim with the scheduled wine tasting.

“I don’t for a minute believe Kyle intended to embarrass her sister or lead her into temptation with regard to the wine tasting. It was unfortunate circumstances, and I thought Kim reacted accordingly and seemed to deal with it appropriately.”

Lisa has a history with Kim, and as she watched the dark turn of events unfold, past incidents with Kim were evidently brought to her mind.

“I cannot fathom how one can arrive–with the knowledge that every moment will be recorded, documented in front of millions, where they are absolutely positive that interactions in a group setting are required–without one’s faculties, albeit due to drink or drugs and not expect people to comment on irrational and volatile behavior.”

Lisa brings back a blast from the past, when she recalled an earlier sketchy Kim episode, during a cast trip to Paris

I do recall a similar situation, myself, two years ago in Paris, where Kim’s demeanor was questionable, her words were slurring and she was not herself.

“I made the mistake of suggesting she had taken a sleeping pill to combat the demands of jet lag, almost hoping that this would be a legitimate and understandable explanation for her bizarre behavior. I was met with an angry response–how dare I insinuate that she was not committed to her sobriety? But her actions spoke otherwise. My point being is if we subject our friends to questionable conduct, aren’t we therefore justified to call it out as Lisa R. did in the car?”

Lisa weighed in on the shoving match between Kyle and Brandi,  hitting the nail on the head with her assessment.

“It was startling, but I understood Kyle’s frustration as she attempted to communicate with Kim, only to be blocked by Brandi. Kyle obviously, with years of experiencing situations like this, resented Brandi physically blocking her attempt to reach her sister.”

Longtime RHOBH viewers certainly remember several incidents where Kim Richards was on film acting erratically suspicious. Evidently, the old Kim  is back, or maybe it’s simply becoming just too difficult to hide the REAL Kim

    Lisa took a lot of flack after Paris from not only Kim but also Yolanda (she’s not your friend, a real friend would call you this morning), Brandi (you’re concerned on the show but not off camera) and Kyle (I can see why it upsets Kim when you keep asking “where’s Kim”). Let’s see now if Yolanda questions Kim on whether Brandi called her the next morning.

    • Bad Barbie

      Wait, Kyle is wrong for asking where is Kim? Kim could potentially be behind the bushes with her feet up in the air. Walking onto coming traffic. Sniffing in the bathroom. I’d be frantic asking too.

      • Guardian

        It becomes such a dysfunctional dance and I do feel sorry for Kyle. With an abuser you are always darned if you do and darned if you don’t.

        • TGIP>>STHU NenePhaedraBrandi

          Same same with a sociopath or psychopath as well. And there just isn’t any room for anything but praising a narcissist, since nothing else matters but their own opinion of themselves.
          And when you hear the same old version of everything all about them, it’s just gets old and boring. (“But, but what about MEEEEEEE!”–is all I hear them screaming in their own head and verbally out loud as well– which is pretty much the same.)

          • Guardian

            Soooo old. Kim needs to be off the air as well as Brandi. I’m so tired of watching two addicts – just not entertaining.

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        No not at all – but they all made out Lisa was the Devil last season for asking “where’s Kim” yet they ALL do it because Kim was always missing.

    • TGIP>>STHU NenePhaedraBrandi

      I don’t recall, but did Lisa VDP just walk away from the women who jumped her case over the Kim in Paris BS?
      I would think that Lisa VDP would do that, because especially with Kim, there’s just no reasoning with a twit like her. And on Yolanda, casing Lisa VDP, well, that was just about as useless as Yolanda’s campaign to kiss her husband’s rear every chance she can on camera.
      Over it!

  • TGIP>>STHU NenePhaedraBrandi

    If indeed what is written above is a correct version of what Lisa VDP said (and I believe it is), then I think that her rendition of what happened is a logical, well thought out written or otherwise reaction, that makes sense.
    I don’t know…it just really seems that if Kim has returned to her “using” demeanor again…and Lisa already witnessed it before this (Paris), then Lisa would have a fair opinion of Kim’s behavior differences.
    And beyond that, to me, Kim and Brandi seem to be the taller and shorter version of a similar personality type. They just aren’t very appealing or worth watching, pretty much, at all.

    • Guardian

      Anyone watching the show could see that Kim was on something. She was down right scary in the car with Lisa R. I mean, what was that? Then her behavior at the poker game reminded me of her behavior in season’s past. I’m just hoping that someone connected to Monty’s Doctors makes them aware of the situation – or any pharmacy – or the police. Totally against the law to share meds.

      • Bad Barbie

        That was crazy. I give it to Lisa R that handled the situation so well.

        • Guardian

          Can you imagine being in a confined space with that? I’d be so hoping she didn’t have any weapons.

  • Bad Barbie

    I thought people were going to say “You weren’t there to comment on the issue”. LOL

    Lisa is right though. I’d tell ya’ Kyle is a punk cause that would have been someone coming between my and my sister, pizza would have been the last thing on the floor. GTFOH.

    • Guardian

      You don’t have to be a Doctor to know when you are ill. Hell, anyone watching the episode could put two and two together. I think Lisa has a pretty good idea of how Kim’s addiction(s) have impacted their family. I agree – B would not come between me and a sibling either. The behavior and things we heard Kim say are so typical of a substance abuser. They always dump on those who look after them – always. And they always embrace those who enable them. That’s the tell tale sign as to how far they have progressed in their sobriety. In Kim’s case – her behavior showed a major relapse. I suspect that without Kyle and the entire family, Kim would be dead by now.

      • Bad Barbie

        I agree, I think Kim would have been dead for like 15yrs now…

    I’m bored with this Kim/Kyle storyline. The airtime should be spent with the interesting cast members instead of this pill popping lush. Kyle wants to make it all about herself and that’s boring too. 5 Seasons of this storyline for both Kyle and Kim is more than enough.

    • Guardian

      Just watched next week’s preview. Let Kim and Brandi go off together. Kyle should just let happen what is going to happen. And let the show focus on E & L.

    • TGIP>>STHU NenePhaedraBrandi

      One show of it was more than enough!

      • Babson_Chick

        Exactly!!

  • Lisa makes some very valid points and I agree with her.

  • TGIP>>STHU NenePhaedraBrandi

    What seems to be inclement weather for all of these RHW shows, is that someone with logic and common sense along with intelligence, is so drastically outnumbered by the number of widgets that populate these shows.

  • Babson_Chick

    Of the originals, Lisa remains the only one with class, commonsense, smashing sense of humnor and a good heart. She probably has to drink just to film with these crazy people.
