Lisa Vanderpump: Brandi Glanville Validated Kim’s Negative Feelings Towards Her Sister To Undermine Kyle

Posted on Apr 16 2015 - 2:56am by Norrth Cafe


I love Lisa Vanderpump but she is going to have to hire a new ghostwriter, one who isn’t practicing for the SATs while blogging! The writer uses language we never hear Lisa use. While the words don’t feel like her own, the sentiment sure does and I love it:

“I think upon reflection, it has been pretty obvious after months of filming the intent of some to insert themselves into an already fractious situation. Kim obviously felt bolstered by BG, much to her detriment, as she became a victim of her own volatility. I doubt since filming has wrapped whether there has been much interaction between BG and Kim. It would surprise me greatly if this supposedly close relationship is still flourishing.”

BG? I love how Lisa Vanderpump never uses her name, any more. You know she is honestly and truly done with Brandi. Am I the only one who thought Brandi was making her big escape after Kim went off on Kyle and faulted poor Alexia for being bitten by Kingsley? Hours of belittling the other wives, calling them “crazy” and hypocrites, and she’s suddenly washed her hands?  Brandi is practically chewing her leg off to escape the trap she laid. Kim’s threats to expose Kyle’s children were over the top. If that’s the kind of volatility Lady Vanderpump is referencing, I completely agree. I think Brandi definitely made a bad situation worse and Kim felt emboldened by the support from her “friend.” I, too, would be shocked if these two women are still friends.  Somehow, I’m sure it will be Kyle’s fault, in Kim’s eyes, if her buddy BG dumps her.

“There’s not a lot to say that hasn’t been said, really, but what concerned me this season was the manipulative attempt by BG to undermine Kyle and to validate any negativity that Kim was feeling, salaciously stating what a  wonderful friend she was and how totally unsupportive Kyle has been.”

Lady Vanderpump hits the proverbial nail on its proverbial head. How often did we hear Brandi tell Kim that her sister was never really there for her? Help me figure out if I’ve made this up. I thought that somewhere in the first or second seasons we heard that Kyle and Mauricio spent so much time helping Kim that Mauricio felt as if he had two wives. I think that Lisa remembers it, too, as she writes:

“I don’t believe the years of dealing with a sibling struggling with alcoholism, supporting financially when needed, should be ignored–also the emotional toll it must have taken on the family.”

Lisa is taking no prisoners and I hope the other wives are paying attention:

“Also in this final segment, it baffles me once again as to the arrogance as to state what is off limits. How many scenarios can we excuse? Dogs? Children? House? Sobriety? Our business became your business when we  entered into your living room. We should strive for transparency, and we should deal with consequences as we profit from the benefits.”

Kim and Brandi both want privacy about some aspect of their lives, but put the other wives’ business out on the Bravo streets.

“I have grown close to Lisa and Eileen and enjoyed them immensely, not always understanding Lisa’s actions, but always believing it came from a place of concern, even if sometimes, like in regard to the text she sent, it  was a little impulsive. Her anger got the better of her, and for that, I believe she was sorry. I am not making excuses for her, but I am resolute in the belief that provocation sometimes creates a day of reckoning.”

If the RHOBH timeline is any indication, most of the audience agrees with her about Lisa Rinna, Eileen, and the hot mess around the text messages.

“So that is what I hope for this season, that the devious trifling is never rewarded by the success in the breakdown of any relationship. Last year, as I sat on my own, aghast at what had transpired, I hoped for a clearer  picture, and now I have one, as I think you all do.”

Anyone who thought this reunion would vindicate Brandi had probably skipped watching the actual footage. I agree with Lisa… things are painfully clear.

“Lastly, I would like to say a huge thank you to all of you, who have sent messages of love and well wishes in what has proved to be a trying week. The surgery has been a reminder of how sometimes the indomitable support  of those close to you is so valuable, and I appreciate it tremendously. My children by my side, friends, and family are the icing on the cake. Thank you to you all. Ken is doing much better and is well on the way to full  recovery.”

The best of luck to Ken, Lisa, and their lovely family as they move forward. Here’s to a healthier, happier 2015!

I’m an exasperated soap fan who keeps hanging on – waiting for the daytime I once loved to return to its former glory! Hey, it doesn’t hurt to have a dream. I learned to love soaps thanks to my wonderful mother and grandmother. I’ll always have fond memories of daytime, most especially of ‘Another World’, my first stoap love. The ever great, but sadly defunct, daytime shows like Ryan’s Hope, Search for Tomorrow, The Doctors, Loving, and many others keep a special place in my heart, as well. ♦ Norrth Cafe's BlogTwitterFacebook

    I love that LisaV basically said what a lot of viewers have said for ages about Kim – if she wants to get a big fat Bravo check for being on a reality then stop whining and trying to censor your co-workers! I do think LisaV writes her own blogs – she gets a bit carried away but I can definitely hear her voice in them. Brandi was clearly trying to jump on the good ship Lisa with her “I want these sisters to make up more than anything” comments after Lisa said it. But yet in her podcasts she is still talking about what a foul sister Kyle is and how Kathy doesn’t even like her – yeah you really want those sisters to work it out right Brandi?

      I read her blogs in her accent too. LOL!

        LOL I’m just short of doing the facial movements – or lack of them 🙂

    Lisa R just couldn’t leave well enough alone …she was asked by Kim several times to stay out of the conversation between Kim and Kyle…Kim was polite and Lisa kept pushing the ticket…..Kim told her she would talk to her …..Lisa R wasn’t shut down she just needed to be patient ……sending those messages was a mistake

    To me, the writing sounded exactly like Lisa Vanderpump doing the talking. She’s consistently shown since Episode 1 that she is of above average intelligence and in possession of a very broad vocabulary. At times, her command of the English language has caused problems when she selected a word that was quite harmless but was not one which was in major use with the other housewives and they decided that maybe Lisa had been snarky and insulted them when she didn’t. She often had to do a lot of explaining about what she was trying to say to both BG and Kim, and both have yelled foul when there was none. Now, with the addition of Eileen who is also in possession of a formidable vocabulary, Lisa is finally free to again start speaking in more dignified manner and again showcase her intelligence. I watch most but not all of the franchises and I’ve never had a favorite HW, until Lisa V. I don’t see her as a perfect creature who never does any wrong. I see the normal human being that she is. I admire her for her wit, wisdom and intellect. Eileen is a close second to Lisa. After that, all the HWs in all the other cities are just people who sometimes I side with, sometimes I don’t.

    Brandi and Kim were friends during the off season last year. Is LVP friendly with any of her “friends” in the off season?

    LVP also forgets that Kyle and Brandi rode together to Poker night. They were friendly up to that point. That changed when Kyle tried to keep Kim there after Kim told Brandi that Kyle was being mean to her. It did have anything to do with trying to get back at Kyle.

      The only people I would want to be friends with off camera is Lisa V and Eileen.
      Most of them are too much drama even for me.
      Being friendly in a car ride is one thing – being friends is totally different.

      Oh… and good morning! I SEE you. LOL

      • twifan2

        I see you too. 🙂

    • MorningYawn

      Brandi was pretty mean at the poker table before all that stuff started!

  • Brattus Rattus

    I know that the way I speak and the way I write on say…AATT are completely different than the way I write for work I speak pretty much the same just more cursing at work because these people….killing me. She may or may not have a ghost writer. Who knows. I agree with Lisa’s sentiments. All of them put their lives out there so they have to expect a reaction so there can’t be a HUSH! or a DON’T TALK ABOUT THAT! or any of the like. If you’re getting paid to be on reality TV, be real. It’s going to come out sooner or later. Own it. It will usually come out sooner or later anyway. If you own it, most people will lose interest. It’s the lies and BS that people don’t drop.

    Kyles blog is up

  • Bad Barbie

    That is KING LISA! Love you boo!

    I was furious last year and the season before that because Linda used to roll with B and laugh at all of her nonsense. I am glad that she woke up and … smelled the roses!

  • MorningYawn

    You all probably saw, but Kim was arrested early this morning- allegedly drunk and kicked (assaulted?) an officer. It’s very sad, especially for her famil) but maybe this is the kick in the ass she needs to really get help.

    Thanks, Norrth Café… I loved Ryan’s Hope also. I couldn’t believe they took it off the air. I most especially loved AMC with Phoebe, the Carnie and Palmer Courtland. haha.

    Yay for Lisa telling it how it is and FINALLY washing her hands of BG. I was always icked out by that friendship…. that and icked out by BG herself.
