Lisa Vanderpump On Kyle Richards “Damned If You Do, Damned If You Don’t”


Lisa Vanderpump is taking to her Bravo Blog this week to defend her actions regarding the Mauricio cheating scandal on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Lisa explains that she felt like Kyle was singling her out about not being supportive and Lisa explains that her conversation with Ken was real. She says no woman can 100% know if their husband is faithful.

Lisa writes, “We then settle into a scene with Kyle talking to Mauricio about the tabloid stories that seem to dominate each week. But I suppose this is our reality. That’s what we signed up for. It was front and center of a major magazine and to think that in the midst of the show, when a story reared it’s ugly head that it wouldn’t be discussed is ridiculous. In fact in the kitchen it was Kyle who initiated the tabloid conversation about her supposed pregnancy, which you keep seeing. I remember before I joked with Kyle I said. . .”Ugh its all ridiculous nonsense.” Now she felt the need to discuss my lack of support?

After seeing their subsequent conversation I am glad I am alleviated from the responsibility of having to defend them. . .Fake support who says that?

Who does know what transpires in somebody’s marriage? However I am adamant that what is printed in the tabloids is not to be relied on. Much has little merit. I have the sentiment that if Kyle doesn’t believe it and he denies it, then that’s good enough for me. Who cares what a tabloid says?

When a magazine printed rumors about our marriage quoting Cedric, there was not a word in our defense. I didn’t look for it and I didn’t expect it — because I gave it the credence it deserved — nothing.

Can we as women state unequivocally that our husbands are faithful? Of course not! It would be foolish to. That is why I said to Ken I wouldn’t even know for certain if he was playing around. I have never been given reason to think so, but I am not with him all hours of every day.

This was an honest conversation between husband and wife who have been married for 31 glorious years, and I defy any woman to be 1000 percent certain, but one thing I know for sure is that tabloids are for the most part inaccurate.

I find it odd that Kyle keeps singling me out? I was the only one who attempted to discredit it. Not one person including her sister, who was quiet at Carlton’s lunch, supported her. But the very first time I was on the carpet and the first time since it was published that I was out in front of reporters, which was a month later, I stated, when asked, that I believed it to be utter bulls—. I chose that terminology as I knew it would be printed. I was only vaguely included in the “bully story” that had been previous and had no need to defend myself. I absolutely said it in support of them. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.”
