Lisa Vanderpump is taking to her Bravo Blog to explain that she is watching the end of her friendship with Brandi, just as we are as viewers. Lisa says she felt Brandi was making a dig when she said Lisa was all diamonds and darlings and chose Yolanda to go to Sacramento with her instead of Lisa. Lisa explains maybe she should have taken the warning to back off and stop “mothering” Brandi.
Lisa writes, “It is disconcerting when we view these episodes so many months later and see how things have changed. As I lay talking to Brandi on her bed, she was still devastated at losing Chica. I felt the loss too, knowing how painful that must be and tried to comfort her. . .She was not in a particularly good place, and I was aware that her visiting her family was also probably going to be emotionally difficult. I had offered my support in accompanying her, but she declined, choosing Yolanda instead, which in retrospect was probably better as I was playing catchup all year!
It’s strange when I hear her say I am all diamonds and darlings and I shouldn’t go with her. . . Subtle dig, but it registered. Anyway the loss of Chica was the first hurdle to overcome.
I am glad she had some resolution with her family when she was there.
So we all are invited to a self defense class. It was a bit of a giggle, Kyle ribbing me about never going to the market, playing with me, and, as most of you know, I love a laugh. So, for the most part, it pretty much went without incident, which is always a good thing. But when Brandi socked the trainer, I heard a crack and thought it was quite possible her hand was broken. She told me that she didn’t want to make a fuss at the lesson in front of Joyce. I understood that.
So the three of us decided to go for a drink. I had a short time before I had to work at SUR — not forgetting the challenge of having two shows at the same time, I never knew quite when I was coming or going!
When we sitting there I had noticed Brandi’s hand starting to swell, and having had children who have broken things, felt yes I was being motherly but it was important that she had an x-ray. I would take her.
I suddenly I am being warned to back off. Maybe I should’ve done exactly that! I question myself now, should you just let your friends fend for themselves? I don’t think so. In fact, if anyone wants to mother me I would welcome it! Her hand was broken and her wrapping it in celo-tape was not the answer. . .
And so as the story unfolds, we see hints of dissension in our relationship, which is sad to me as I believed we were so close. There is a slow deterioration that I am starting to see and hopefully some things that I couldn’t fathom will be explained. Your tweets and comments have been so supportive and I thank you for that.”
