Lisa Vanderpump “I Was Warned About Yolanda”

RHOBH

Lisa Vanderpump is taking to her Bravo Blog to discuss her actions on the premiere of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Lisa explains why she made the joke about Mauricio’s cheating in front of Portia. She explains she publicly defended Mauricio against these allegations at several events where the media was present. Lisa also explains why she defended Yolanda about what Yolanda supposedly said in Paris.

Lisa writes, “Hello to you all and welcome to our fourth season of RHOBH. It has been an eventful year and a tumultuous season!

We open with the gorgeous Gigi posing for a fashion shoot for Beverly Hills Lifestyle, the magazine that most of you are now familiar with as I have been a contributor and writer with for years. They always create the most exquisite fashion shoots, and Gigi was perfection. I have seen her mature over the years since I am close to Mohamed, and I revel in her success. She is a kind, sweet, beautiful creature.

As I am sure most of you knew, I participated in Dancing With the Stars last season. It was an honor to be asked and a daunting task, that’s for sure. I was lucky enough to find my self closely ensconced and physically entwined with one of most beautiful men I have ever laid my eyes on — Gleb Savchenko. Gleb is a kind and patient man that had the challenge of transforming me into a dancer. It was a struggle, just from the amount of hours you had to commit to while squeezing life’s normal demands. And that is what I explained to Kyle. I felt I was doing many things and none of them very well, but above all I was having an amazing experience and was well aware that it would be short and sweet!

Kyle had asked me to cater an event for her. It isn’t something we often do — to take our chef away from the restaurant. Transporting the food and staff is just too complicated to ever be worthwhile. While I am there, Kyle brings up the fact that there have been stories created about her being pregnant. I also mentioned that I had seen the articles about Mauricio cheating. I would prefer face-to-face to acknowledge them, and then in the same breath ridicule the constant nonsense that is often in these tabloids.

When we enter this domain, this is the tax we pay. I have endured countless articles and malicious gossip. The previous week I had appeared on the very same magazine cover stating that they had discovered a sex tape!!! As if!!! The only way I have of dealing with and enduring these hurtful, slanderous headlines is to give them as much credence as they deserve — zero — and also reminding myself that the very same paper will be lining the bottom of a parrot’s cage tomorrow. We cannot invest emotionally, otherwise it will eat you alive.

I had been at an event a couple of days prior and publicly denounced the validity of these rumors regarding Mauricio on the red carpet. I was quoted using the terminology “utter bullshit.” I had chosen my words carefully as I responded to the inquiring minds, because I was well aware that my reply would be documented everywhere and it was my duty as a friend to defend them.

There was still the issue of Yolanda that was unresolved. I was adamant that Yolanda would never say derogatory things about me. I remained steadfast in my resolve to defend her, however I explained to Kyle that if I was prepared to ignore it, why couldn’t she? Kyle felt it was a matter of principle that she knew Yolanda was guilty, she was a liar, and was hurt that I wouldn’t believe her. Hindsight is twenty twenty. I was warned and chose to ignore it, this is how the story begins…

At the party, we were introduced to the two new girls, Joyce and Carlton. Carlton seemed to take offense at the fact that Kyle was poking fun at me, highlighting the supposed naked scene. She felt it was disparaging, belittling to people she had only just met, when I wasn’t there to defend myself. When I witnessed it, I understood her sentiment, but as I have stated previously, the only way for me to navigate this rocky terrain is with humor when it comes to these ridiculous tabloids. If Kyle wanted to poke fun and draw attention to something that some might find embarrassing, I have no problem with it whatsoever, but I liked the fact that this quirky Brit was voicing an opinion. So thank you for watching! Until next week!”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    Lisa talks about speaking publicly about scandals and secrets.. She defends Brandi and Yolanda but please remember her houseguest “Cedric”. Her friends never spoke behind her back about what was going on in that household. Lisa you were acting so catty in this episode. Please go back to being the Lisa I so admired.

      Aunt Bee, You and I agree on most things RH, and I’m not sure I get what you’re referring to about Cedric.

  • DebBrenn

    Lisa is the voice of reason, as always.

  • Mike

    I must not read Lisa’s blog the same as you. I don’t perceive Lisa saying “I was warned about Yolanda” To me, it seems ambiguous as to whether Lisa is saying she believes Kyle or Yolanda. I could be wrong, but I don’t believe there was ever any video of Yolanda saying what Kyle is claiming, so it comes down to who Lisa believes.

    • deonn

      i agree with you lol i dont see anywhere here claiming i was warned about yolanda. although im not gonna lie i believe yolanda said alll those things

      Here is where Lisa foreshadows her drama with Yolanda. She says she was warned by Kyle that Yolanda was a liar and she chose to ignore it.

      “There was still the issue of Yolanda that was unresolved. I was adamant that Yolanda would never say derogatory things about me.

    Denbrenn, Cedric was the houseguest who lived for free at Lisa and Kens. He was brought to live there by Lisa and I never thought Ken liked it. Then something happened and Ken threw him out. Cedric started spreading rumors about them and on that reunion show for that season Ken called Cedric some names and you could tell how distraught Lisa was. They never went into details about it and no one on the couch said anything but you could tell they all knew the specifics about it. I admired their restraint. I think if you Google Cedric on Real HWOBH it will refresh your memory.

    Aunt Bee, although Lisa and ken knew Cedric for years, I believe he only lived with them for one year. There was never a big secret. Ken always said he allowed Cedric to stay for a short time to get on his feet and then weeks turned into months and Ken gave him a deadline when to leave. Why is that so curious? Anyone would want to kick a freeloader out. When they made him leave is when Cedric got nasty. On season 1, Kyle was very clear that she was weary of Cedric and viewed him as a user and that is exactly what he turned out to be. No big hidden secret from what we heard and saw.
